After Embarrassing Finish in New Hampshire, Joe Biden Should Call it Quits
“the sense that the end is near for Biden has inspired panic in the ranks of Democrats and their media allies”
The Iowa caucus was a bad start for former Vice President Joe Biden, but New Hampshire was even worse. Biden took fifth place in the Granite State, barely breaking 20,000 votes.
Biden fled New Hampshire before the votes were even tallied, running off to South Carolina, where he and others have claimed for months that he has some sort of electoral firewall. The harsh truth is that Biden is, and always has been, a terrible candidate.
On Tuesday, before the New Hampshire race was called, there were already signs of panic.
Natasha Korecki reported at Politico:
Biden super PAC warns of ‘doomsday scenario’
A super PAC for Joe Biden — in a call to arms to wavering donors and supporters — is warning of a “doomsday scenario” for the Democratic Party if the wobbly onetime frontrunner is forced out of the presidential race.
A memo from the Unite the Country super PAC to donors, obtained by POLITICO, asserts that the party could pay a steep price if Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg or Amy Klobuchar is chosen as the nominee. Most ominously, it raises the specter of Sanders and billionaire Mike Bloomberg squaring off at a split convention.
Democrats must stand by Biden through the early stretch of the primary calendar to avoid that fate, the group implores.
“Donors hedging their bets on Biden because of Bloomberg could be creating a doomsday scenario for Democrats everywhere,” the group’s treasurer, Larry Rasky, wrote. “The Sanders-Warren wing of the Party is ready for the Bloomberg fight. Democrats cannot afford a split Convention.
“If Bernie has more delegates, do you really think the Bros will make way for Mike?,” it added, referring to the hard-core Sanders supporters known as “Bernie Bros.” “Not to mention that the legacy of the Sanders campaign (such as the Squad) will ravage any chance Center-Left Democrats have of maintaining hard won victories in states from Pennsylvania to California.”
If donors were worried before New Hampshire, imagine how they feel now.
Robert Stacy McCain summed it up at the American Spectator:
The Great Liberal Freakout Has Begun
Joe Biden could finish as low as fifth place in tonight’s New Hampshire primary results. Certainly, if we can trust the most recent poll, the former vice president will do no better than third, behind Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
Even a third-place finish in New Hampshire for Biden would be an improvement over his dismal showing in the Iowa caucus, in which he placed fourth behind Sanders, Buttigieg, and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren. But as badly as Warren’s campaign has floundered, it’s unlikely Biden could beat her in her own backyard. What most troubles the dreams of establishment Democrats is the worst-case scenario for Biden in New Hampshire, namely that Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who finished fifth in Iowa, can gain enough momentum to claim fourth place tonight.
Such an outcome would probably be a fatal blow to Biden’s campaign, and the sense that the end is near for Biden has inspired panic in the ranks of Democrats and their media allies over the possibility that either (a) the socialist Sanders could win the party’s nomination, or (b) their coalition might come completely unraveled should the establishment Democrats cheat Sanders out of the nomination, as the Vermont senator’s left-wing loyalists believe happened in 2016. Either way, the odds of any Democrat beating Donald Trump in November have become increasingly bleak, and the Great Liberal Freakout of 2020 has now begun in earnest.

Now seems like a good time to cite this new Gallup poll:
Socialism and Atheism Still U.S. Political Liabilities
More than nine in 10 Americans say they would vote for a presidential candidate nominated by their party who happened to be black, Catholic, Hispanic, Jewish or a woman. Such willingness drops to eight in 10 for candidates who are evangelical Christians or are gays or lesbians. Between six and seven in 10 would vote for someone who is under 40 years of age, over 70, a Muslim or an atheist.
Just one group tested — socialists — receives majority opposition. Less than half of Americans, 45%, say they would vote for a socialist for president, while 53% say they would not.
Joe Biden is not going to be able to save the Democrats from the mess they have made for themselves.

Biden ran to South Carolina and people in New Hampshire are asking “Where’s Hunter?”
Follow the coke and/or hookers – he will be there
Maria Bartiromo said this morning that Bloomberg has an ad running that is singularly with clips of Obama praising Mini Mike. I have not seen the ad myself but if true, and Bloomberg got Obama’s approval to run the clips, there’s the REAL story why Biden never caught fire – his former boss didn’t give him a recommendation.
Have seen it here in Pennsylvania.
It looks like a full-throat-ed endorsement, based on Bloomberg’s gun control efforts.
The ad is running at saturation levels in Texas. The only opposition is Buttigieg.
Valerie, If Neo is right, and the ad is an endorsement by Obama of Bloomberg’s campaign for gun control, then it’s no wonder it is being played ad nauseum in Texas – to cater to the Beto voters. Ugh.
I’ve said this before – Bloomberg will get those Beto voters and he’ll get NY and California voters, but he won’t get middle America and he won’t get the gun rights voters.
I’ve caught sight of it on local TV.
What a COUPLE of LOSERS!!!!!
Mini Mental Midget and Barrack!
The video tape is so old you’re asking when you see it, why are they running decrepit old home movies on VHS………
Remember Barrack has the REVERSE MIDAS TOUCH. Everything Barrack touches turns into…..Schiff!
This is all based on your premise that “if…Bloomberg got Obama’s approval to run the clips”. Why would you assume that? Why would he need it? Nobody knows what 0bama thinks about it.
I reckon it’s because the MSM has revealed themselves to be rudderless without official party talking points. The media doesn’t appear to revisit Obama footage unless it’s in keeping with current party direction … the right does of course, for as often as Obama’s past remarks contradict current direction, but rarely does it get picked up by lefty media outlets. So if MSM is running ads that leave the impression Obama endorses Bloomberg, they must have the party / Obama nod behind them.
This makes no sense. The MSM isn’t doing this, the Bloomberg campaign is. The MSM are broadcasting the ads the same way they do all ads — that’s what they do for a living.
How recent are those Obama clips Bloomberg is running? I.e., did Obama make those comments before Bloomberg entered the race for the nomination? Has he explicitly endorsed Bloomberg’s candidacy or are the ads merely creating the *impression* that he has?
The clips are all old. 0bama has not said anything recently in public about any of the candidates.
Oh, and the ads don’t pretend the quotes are recent. They’re all “this is what 0bama said about Mike ten years ago”.
Thanks. Obviously, I haven’t seen the ads myself.
Joe call it quits? What if it is not his call to make?
Don’t look at these Dem events as isolated events.
Less intellect and energy than Jeb! (please clap).
Now it seems to be a Bernie v.s. Butti race. Repeat v.s. Pete.
Face it. The House took out Joe Biden with shampeachment.
… but he won’t.
Some believe the DNC will keep Biden propped up for quite a bit longer in order to keep as many delegates away from Bernie as possible.
Run Joe, run! Burn as much of that Democrat cash as you can as fast as you can.
A factor, to be sure, but there are several. The recent “lying, dog-faced pony soldier” crack is apparently not atypical of his style in public conversation. If that is the case, then he carries his own fire extinguisher.
Given the way his campaigns have gone in the past, and that’s even without the unwanted publicity given by Trump’s impeachment to questions about Biden’s integrity, one might well conclude that all the hype given to his prospects as a candidate was composed mostly of serious wishful thinking.
There has been a persistent rumor for weeks now that Joe’s handlers have been dosing him with heavy stimulants before any public appearances for weeks now, because otherwise he’s not capable of maintaining any mental focus on what’s going on around him. This would explain the frequent eyebleeds, as well as the uncharacteristically aggressive behavior he’s been showing towards innocent voters.
Pumping an old man up with stimulants just to try and hide his advancing senility is not a very safe thing to do, from a purely medical point of view. They could easily kill him if they keep this up.
As Hank Williams put it:
you gotta go
me oh my oh…”
Don’t know if Slow Joe has the intellect to know he’s toast. Someone needs to read him the writing on the wall. Then ‘splain him the meaning. He is that stupid!
Then ask him about his new grandson.

Joe’s last hope depends on winning the S. Carolina primary, after never winning a single primary in 30+ years of running for President. What are the odds on that?
I wonder if Joe has been told that staying in the race is his only chance to avoid indictment.
You hit the nail on the head there… Gropey Joe has a long history of dismal failure in Presidential races. People seem to have forgotten, or think that serving as VP changed something. Joe truly was chosen by Obama as impeachment insurance. Yes, he’s that stupid and that pathetic.
Let’s face it, Weird Uncle Joe, the relative everyone knows but won’t let in to play with their children, has been campaigning for POTUS for DECADES. Why else would he undergo hair plugs, plastic surgery, and serving 8 years as the ‘understudy’ to an acknowledged homosexual Communist Muslim? Everything to increase his visibility but nothing to help the country (except for those special people that just happen to be related to him).
A scheming Professional Democrat Politician just like the rest of the crowd.
The Democrat Management would prefer Sanders over Bloomberg but anxiously look for a White Knight to save the election. A Brokered Convention is in the winds and the savior may just be someone who has incredibly high name recognition, extremely high visibility, and can gain access to the Big Money needed to accomplish the goal. Can you say Mike, or Oprah, or, Good Lord Save us, Hillary?
A what? Homosexual is pure speculation; he was raised a communist, but I doubt he still is one; and he is certainly not a Moslem. But even if, against all evidence, you think he is secretly those three things, you can’t possibly claim he’s acknowledged it.
Calling people homosexuals on either speculation or just plain dislike is common. Common on the playgrounds of elementary schools. That, or the accusers are closet cases.
I haven’t so much as the time of day for Barack Hussein Obama, but the homosexual accusations, and calling his wife “Mike” got old really fast.
I never believed the “Mike” stories until I saw the infamous Ellen Degeneres tape – wow. I can think of no way to explain that one. I mostly try to forget that I ever saw it.
He was schooled in a madrassa in Indonesia, so he was certainly a Muslim in his youth. Islam doesn’t abide apostates, and he was/is obviously on good terms with world Muslim leaders. He has publicly recited the call to prayer, calling it “a beautiful sound”. According to some, reciting it is an acknowledgement that the individual is Muslim. I don’t know if that’s accurate, but there is clearly enough evidence to refute your claim that he “certainly” isn’t one. He was also the child of socialist parents, and his policies don’t show any evidence that he has changed there either, given that he’s the direct ideological father of what’s going on now in the Dem Party.
No, he was not. Really, where are you people getting all this misinformation? This is basic stuff, public information.
Nobody but a person himself can determine what he means by something. If someone sings “Ave Maria” or “Hare Krishna” that might mean he’s acknowledging the faith expressed by the words, or it might mean he just likes the way it sounds. If he sings it in the context of saying how beautiful he finds it, then he is clearly not acknowledging anything beyond that, and might not even know what the words mean.
Yes, his mother and grandparents were socialists or outright communists, and so were a lot of the people they associated with, to whom he was exposed as a child. I acknowledged that already. But I doubt he’s still one, and he is certainly not an acknowledged one; on the contrary he denies it. I wonder whether SeniorD knows what “acknowledged” means.
??Don’t try, Joe…
Just go home
Just go home
Just go home…??
“I am Joe Bjden. I am running for something but I can’t remember if I approved this commercial.”
He has to stay in the race to give himself cover as the Democrat leading candidate as Trump digs deeper in to his corruption and fraud.
The movie “Downfall” portrays a delusional Hitler deploying non-existent divisions to push the Russians back to the gates of Moscow, while Red Army troops are less than a kilometer from the bunker.
Joe is deploying non-existent voters and campaign funds in his delusional drive to win the presidency.
Maybe like Downfall we could do some

Biden’s selling proposition to the Democratic primary voter has been, “Only I can beat Trump.”
Yet these dismal results call that proposition into question, in that if he can’t score in the primaries he’s unlikely to be able to generate the necessary enthusiasm to produce a Democrat turnout in November that can beat Trump.
If he had some other message then perhaps he’d have a reason to keep going, yet, other than “I’m the only viable candidate for the general election” he really hasn’t had much of anything to say or offer.
So, yes, if your campaign claim is based on your supposed ability to deliver votes and you don’t perform, your candidacy is over.
Dog Face Pony Soldier Joe has been counting on South Carolina as in “let me show you how much black and brown people like me–and they don’t like my opponents”.
So the burning question of the day is whether this dog faced soldier is going to re-enact Pickett’s Charge in South Carolina? Wrong soldier, wrong state, but probably the same result. Biden’s War is over.

I think this should and does panic the Media was that in 2008 after destroying Sarah Palin and helping Obama they thought they had the power to destroy or install anyone they want in office.
Now Trump is still in the White House and the candidate they wanted to put up against Trump, Biden, is out of the running.
They are feeling impotence that only looks like panic.

I don’t think Slo Joe Biden will win in SC. The entire idea that SC provides him with a firewall is that a large plurality (if not an actual ,majority) of the Democratic primary voters are black.
Why Biden expects to get these voters I don’t know. Maybe because he was Obama’s VP.
But the problem is that Biden performed dismally in Iowa and NH. This undercuts his claim that he is the most electable candidate running. Black voters have TVs; they know how badly he did. They also know that while they are an important constituent group they aren’t the entire constituency. Biden is going to need white voters as will if he has a prayer of beating Trump. And if he couldn’t get white democrats in Iowa or New Hampshire a lot of black democrats will no doubt decide he isn’t electable and can’t win the nomination let alone the general election.
Also, Biden has a history; this is his third attempt to become the Democratic nominee for President. In his other two tries he never won a single state’s primary.
Did I just see him plagarize Hillary’s “ahm not nowhere near tired.” speech?
