. . . but “can’t think of one right now”
Former Vice President Joe Biden (D-DE) is still hanging on to the top slot in the 2020 presidential primary clown car. Biden has recovered from a disappointing third quarter fundraising slump and is still leading the Democrat field in most polls.
Therefore, I read this headline from CNN with much amusement: “Joe Biden says he would consider a Republican for his running mate.” He said he “can’t think of one right now,” but that’s hardly surprising since he couldn’t name one female Democrat he’d consider, either.
Joe Biden told voters in New Hampshire on Monday that he would consider choosing a Republican as a running mate, but added, “I can’t think of one right now.”
Biden discussed the possibility after a woman told the former vice president that if he is the nominee, he will “have to pull out all the stops.”
“Our 21-year-old son said the other night, ‘I wonder if Joe Biden would consider choosing a Republican as a running mate,” the woman added.
“The answer is I would, but I can’t think of one now,” Biden replied. “Let me explain that. You know there’s some really decent Republicans that are out there still, but here’s the problem right now … they’ve got to step up.”
Why would he say this? Is this another in the long (long) list of Biden gaffes? Or is he really feeling that his job destroying, big government, Obama throwback message is not breaking through and he needs a Republican, of all things, to attract voters?
Who knows? It’s Biden, after all, but if he is serious, can you just imagine the “Republican” he would pick? It certainly wouldn’t be a solid conservative like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) or Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL).
No, Biden would go for a Republican like Mittens McRomneyCare (R-MA, UT, Wherever He Can Win).
Or maybe he’d really think outside the box and select a prominent #NeverTrumper like Bill Kristol or Kellyanne Conway’s husband. Or maybe, for a bit of diversity, female #NeverTrumpers like a Jennifer Rubin or an SE Cupp.
Whomever he chose, he’d enrage both the left and the right, so it’s a pretty safe bet that this is just Joe being Joe and burbling nonsense.DONATE
