Thursday Biden Bash - Maybe not necessary

There are so many Biden gaffes and foibles that I could run this feature until 2020 in an attempt to point out why he would make a terrible president.  I might not need to do so.  It seems many on the left have soured on good 'ol Joe already.

Take this Huffington Post sample from last month:
But 2020 may not be Biden’s year. While he is better than many other Democrats at offering up economic populism, there are other rising movements for which he isn’t well positioned to be the face of the party.

Clinton lost. And with her defeat went many people’s hope that the nation would finally have its first female president. Afterward, women ― some of whom had supported Clinton and some who did not ― launched a resistance movement to push back on Trump’s policies and get more politically engaged. Record numbers of women are now running for office.

The movement has extended beyond politics. Men in entertainment, media, business and other areas are finally being held accountable for sexist behavior. From former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly to producer Harvey Weinstein to comedian Louis C.K., men are losing their jobs after years of having sexually harassed or assaulted women with impunity.

Biden is the wrong guy to bear the standard of any party purporting to speak for the victims of unaccountable power.
The article goes on to talk about Joe Biden's seemingly dismissive treatment of Anita Hill during the Clarence Thomas SCOTUS hearings. Their point - he's not the right person to win on populism or with women. Possibly true. But if the left is pulling up stumps from camp Biden, then he might have already missed his window and the Thursday Biden Bash might not be necessary. Check back next Thursday and we'll see.
