Skip to comments.Stay-at-home candidate: Joe Biden competes with White House on message
Posted on 03/25/2020 6:56:05 PM PDT by Libloather
Just weeks ago, Joe Biden was riding high on stunning primary wins, starting to fill rallies with thousands, dominating headlines, and quickly coalescing the Democratic Party around his candidacy. Now he is hunkered down in his Wilmington basement, forced to communicate through live stream technology that he says took four days to install.
In normal circumstances, Biden would be the figurehead of his party. But in the wake of the coronavirus, local leaders and governors like New York's Andrew Cuomo are on the front pages and at the frontlines of a global health and economic crisis.
On the trail, the former vice president used to spend hours a day glad-handing with potential voters on the ropelines but now he's been consigned to the role of sideline Senate sage.
"I'm chomping at the bit," he told reporters on Wednesday during a virtual press conference on Zoom. "I wish I were still in the Senate being able to impact on some of these things...but I am where I am."

As far as he knows. He doesn't know.

When did this happen?
Too bad they have to lie
“starting to fill rallies with thousands”
the key word here is “starting”, which means the “rallies” STARTED to fill with “thousands” but none necessarily got to that number ...
Hey Joe, you’re no Warren Harding.
Your grandchild could get on Twitter's Periscope or on YouTube inside of twenty minutes.
He was starting to fill rallies with tens.
Ten year olds?
Oh boy, I hope he didn’t make them play with his leg hair
“Competes” is a very strong word. :)
I mean no misrespect, but Joe is much like or own George Herbert Walker Bush. Both rose to their positions being a “yes man.” Now that Joe has reached the top, he has no idea how to be a real leader. He’s never done it.
“misrespect” = disrespect.
Biden’s latests and probably most explicit example of his early onset dementia,.
This tool is a criminal and his extended family are criminals . Why isn’t he in prison ?
They had to work around the low ceilings at his mansion before they could broadcast. Yes they actually said that.
same reason Hillary and Obama are not in prison. Too big to jail.
Thousands of what? Termites? Ants? There haven’t been thousands of people to see Slow Joe since he was The One’s VP!
Cuomo is going to be Biden’s VP choice.
I suspect that Sleepy Joe is actually happy to have the opportunity and excuse to well... sleep.
He's missing all these opportunities to insult voters and to sniff girls' hair.
But Cuomo would be a more formidable Presidential nominee than Slow Joe.
