Joe Biden is an asshole
Character matters. Biden has none. As president, the man spends his days considering how he can mislead voters about his record, how he can get around the Constitution, and how he can demagogue the other branches.

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


T here is a moment in Back to the Future Part III in which Marty McFly steps outside of the unfamiliar mores of the 19th-century American West and says of Buford Tannen, the man who has challenged him to a duel, “He’s an asshole !”

That line is just three words long, but it contains a universe within its delivery. McFly is incredulous. He is impatient. He has lost his desire to play along with the customs of the age. “We can all see this, right?” he seems to be asking the assembled crowd. We all know that Tannen’s an asshole ?


I feel the same about President Joe Biden. He’s an asshole. Can we not all see it? For those who cannot conceive of truth without triangulation, I will freely stipulate that Donald Trump is an asshole, too — and that, in some ways, he’s an even worse one. But that does not let Biden off the hook. President or not, Biden is a decrepit, dishonest, unpleasant blowhard. He’s a nasty, corrupt, partisan fraud. He is, as Shakespeare had it, “a most notable coward, an infinite and endless liar, an hourly promise breaker, the owner of no one good quality.” Biden is twice as irritating as he believes himself to be, and half as intelligent into the bargain. From the moment he arrived on the scene — nearly 50 years ago, Lord help us — he has represented all that is wrong with our politics. A century hence, his name will be set into aspic and memorialized under “Hack.”

At Axios , Alex Thompson reports the apparently surprising news that Biden “has such a quick-trigger temper that some aides try to avoid meeting alone with him.” Among the president’s favorite admonitions are: “God dammit, how the f**k don’t you know this?!,” “Don’t f**king bullsh*t me!,” and “Get the f**k out of here!” Per Thompson, these revelations are important because, like his refusal to acknowledge his own granddaughter, they threaten to damage Biden’s “carefully cultivated image as a kindly uncle.” But that image is for cretins and sycophants. Joe Biden has never been a “kindly uncle” — or anything approaching one. For his whole life, Joe Biden has been a plodding mediocrity with a Delaware-sized chip on his shoulder. What about him, I wonder, would not lead him to shout stupidly at people? He’s a bully. Check. He’s insecure. Check. He’s senile. Check. He is hostage to his precarious record of lies. Check . His anger is as inevitable as the sunset.

We don’t need Axios to tell us about it. In 1987, during his first run for president, Biden was in spiffing form . Asked by a voter in New Hampshire about his academic record, Biden grew unhinged. “I think I probably have a much higher IQ than you do,” he said, before rattling off a sequence of falsehoods that ought by rights to have ended his career. He said that he graduated in the top half of his law-school class. He did not. He said that he went to that law school on a “full academic scholarship.” He did not. He said that he “won the international moot-court competition,” “was the outstanding student in the political science department,” and “graduated with three degrees from undergraduate school.” None of that was true. In closing, Biden betrayed what the exchange was really about. “I’d be delighted to sit back and compare my IQ to yours if you’d like,” he jabbed. Mr. Dunning-Kruger, your table is ready.


Character matters. Biden has none. As president, the man spends his days considering how he can mislead voters about his record , how he can get around the Constitution , and how he can demagogue the other branches . All that talk in 2020 about “the soul of America”? That was guff. Flotsam. Malarkey . There is nothing the man won’t lie about. He lies about inflation. He lies about gas prices. He lies about the deficit. He lies about the border. He lies about having been arrested for his civil-rights activism, and about having been raised by Puerto Ricans and Greeks and Jews, and about having traveled to Afghanistan to pin a Silver Star on a Navy hero, and about his son’s death, and about the crash that killed his first wife and baby daughter, and about the small kitchen fire that he had 15 years ago, which, in his inimitable style, he has managed to transmute into “having had a house burn down with my wife in it.” In 1987, he plagiarized a speech by the British politician Neil Kinnock that contained a completely different backstory from his own. In 2012, he accused Mitt Romney of wanting to put African Americans “back in chains.” Push a pin into a history book, and you’ll find Joe Biden lying about something.


There are many ugly consequences of our present bout of negative partisanship, but by far the worst is that it leads otherwise sensible people to pretend that up is down. That a person might prefer the Democrats to the Republicans or tax hikes to tax cuts or anyone to Donald Trump is comprehensible to me. That, in pursuit of that aim, they might feign admiration for the grotesque is not comprehensible at all. Joe Biden is an asshole. Always has been, always will be — until the last tawdry whopper leaves his lips.

With this article we've now achieved maximum "bothsiderishness", which was undoubtedly the intention,  hope and prayer of the writer ,and the seeder. 

Trump is the biggest asshole in the history of the known universe?  Well guess what? So is Biden. 

What a pathetic place this nation is in.

It has been obvious for a long time that the people trying to direct Republicans back into the White House from behind the scenes realize that Trump is truly a worthless piece of shit as a human being, and is a known traitor and financial criminal.

There's nothing they can do to change those facts so they do what they think is best at this point , do everything they can to drag Joe Biden down to Trump's level. That is exactly why we're getting the buffoonish impeachment effort from the republican committee in Congress, it is exactly why they are accusing Biden of financial misconduct, and that is exactly why the seeded article was written.

Can you ever defend Biden without referencing trump? Biden’s character is independent of the existence of trump, so what’s with the constant need to reference Trump? For you:

For those who cannot conceive of truth without triangulation, I will freely stipulate that Donald Trump is an asshole, too — and that, in some ways, he’s an even worse one. But that does not let Biden off the hook. President or not, Biden is a decrepit, dishonest, unpleasant blowhard. He’s a nasty, corrupt, partisan fraud.

Don't think that's the intent of this thread John.  You drag Trump down with almost every post you place and now, someone shows that your Dem/Lib "leader" is equal too, if not worse than, Trump, you have to try to turn the tide to make all about Trump.

Please stop with the Trump bashing as being comparative to Biden's azzholiness. 

Yeah, they both suck - deal with it - it's called reality.

I have yet to see any criticism of Biden that wasn't met with a "But Trump".

I think one of our members describes it and decries it as "bothsidism"

We have reams and books full of evidence Donald Trump is a con man, tax cheat, pathological liar, bigot, moron, financial criminal, and traitor, and has been most of these things since he was a young man. 

You have an article from a right wing publication, and other anecdotal information that sheds a negative light on Joe Biden. Please get back to us when you have some proof, let's call it, that Biden is as big an unethical jagoff as Trump is. 

It would take years, at the soonest, for you to produce such information, if it even exists.

This sort of comment is exactly what's wrong with America today

By agreeing with the words "So is Biden" you have actually also agreed with the two sentences prior to the two you agreed with.

Believe it or not, I "think" the intent of the first sentence is typical redundancy of the author of saying the same thing twice but slanting the last portion to negate the first - kinda like a paradox - "I think".

Oh - Cooke isn't a "right wing" publisher - his publications are considered very conservative, or on the "right" side of the equation.

Is that like when just recently, some try to paint trump as having dementia, meanwhile, biden has shown signs of dementia for years?

Evidently, the WH PR section must work 56 hours a day, 240 hours a week to have to cover up the shyte that the liar in chief spews.

Can't believe that Cooke missed the opportunity to expound on showering with your teen daughter, sniffing, fondling, classless manners around any and all females ('cept of course for the Dr.), not having a memory to fill a peanut shell.

And the Dems/Libs luv/respect him and want him to run for a second term?????

What have they come too?????

“He’s an asshole !”

"That line is just three words long,...

No, it's FOUR words long.  But that doesn't necessarily mean it isn't true.

You know Buzz - it's interesting that you mention that.  My "Apple spell-check" always screws my mind with it's "preferred" corrections - even when they're wrong.

Actually, it's FIVE words long - with the contraction and proper separation of the last word into two - right?

From Merriam-Webster

asshole

noun

ass·​hole   ˈas-ˌ(h)ōl 
1
usually vulgar   ANUS
Merriam-Webster shows it as one word.

And just like biff tannen groveling before Mcfly senior at the end of the first movie, Biden the  consummate bully is cravenly apologizing to the progressive base that controls him for speaking the truth.  He’s a bully when punching down and a coward when confronted by someone that can actually threaten him.
