Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, April 11, 2019

Former Vice President Joe Biden is the leader of the pack with 26 percent of California Democrats and voters leaning Democratic, according to a Quinnipiac University Poll released today. U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont takes 18 percent of Democrats and Democratic leaners, with 17 percent for native daughter, U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris. The issue of Biden touching women is not serious, 66 percent of all California voters say, including 67 percent of women and 71 percent of Democrats. Among all voters, 27 percent, including 26 percent of women, 37 percent of Republicans and 24 percent of Democrats, say this is a serious issue. "'Let Biden be Biden,' say California voters, clearly unconcerned about former Vice President Joe Biden's tactile embrace of supporters," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. "But there is one noticeable generational split. The youngest of voters are far more inclined to say, 'hands off.'"

Can we now put this behind us and worry about getting the Orange Stain off the Oval Office carpet?

If you're serious about that, you better not be serious about Biden being the Dem candidate. "Next in line" has lost every election since Carter. No reason that ends in 2020 with Biden.

By that logic, Biden should have been "next in line" ahead of Hillary had he chosen to run in 2016, and Bernie is now "next in line" having narrowly lost to the Chosen One in the Democratic Primaries in 2016.

No reason that ends in 2020 with Bernie.

Harp Bullish On New DOT Chief
www.newhavenindependent.org

...New Haven Mayor Toni Harp ... [a]rgued that Joe Biden should go ahead and enter the Democratic presidential primary campaign despite accusations of unwanted touching.

"I think it's cultural. Some people are huggers. Some places they do a lot more hugging. Some people have said to me who have come from elsewhere, they have to get used to the hugging in New Haven," Harp said.

"I think he should still run. For crying out loud: Look what they've allowed to have happen with Mr. Trump! Why does he get a pass on this when he said horrible things about women?

"People hug here in New Haven. This didn't come up when he was vice-president; interesting ... "

"67% Of Women Say Biden Touching Issue Is Not Serious"

The other 33% say Trump ----- grabbing is not serious.

Oh, work is a totally different scenario.

btw, one of the things I've wondered, do Moms still hand babies to campaigning politicians so that the politician can kiss the baby?

That was A Big Thing years (decades?) ago. Personally, I always thought it was little more than an amazingly effective disease propagation system. But that was just me, and I'm not even a germ-o-phobe..

But my question is - how is that looked upon nowadays?

Politicians Kissing Babies: A Short History
www.motherjones.com

...Richard Nixon thought that doing it would make him look like a "jerk." Geraldine Ferraro said it spread germs and lipstick, but she did it anyway. Andrew Jackson suckered his secretary of war into doing it for him. Davy Crockett did it so much it should have been mentioned in his theme song. We're talking about kissing babies, that revered yet reviled, much-analyzed yet meaningless American political custom....

Biden's ineractions with people doesn't bother me much at all. Biden's relationships with bank matters to me greatly. I won't vote for Biden. Millions of Americans can't buy houses or cars, can't practice professions they were trained for because student loan debt which is not dischargeable in bankruptcy thanks, in part, to Joe Biden.

Hillary jumped ahead of Biden when B. Hussein was elected (keeping that seemingly 'minority' momentum, even though females now outnumber males in the U.S., they are still culturally considered minorities from what I can tell) and was solidified when Biden's son died (his uncertainty in politics mitigated his momentum, allowing Hillary to take the reigns).

IOW, it's not as a binary logic as you have interpreted.

67 percent will also soon say Biden will never touch the whitehouse again.

All this touching is making me feel all tingly tho.

Did they poll the underaged kids? The title to the thread says "woman".

Biden had just lost his son during the campaign time... so I think he had bigger fish to fry... so I can see why he didn't run.

He never struck me has a toxic male type...a little too cuddly maybe... Bush-hole 2 was sort of like that... remember the Merckle shoulder massage? That can make some people uncomfortable... but its not insidious or demeaning... just too familiar. Men in powerful positions get approached by women a lot so you get some that are full of themselves and will just assume its all women who feel like that. It makes it very difficult for those of us who are turned off by alpha @$$H*le$.

I think what makes Ayn Rand so popular among the uber-capitalist types is she had the hots for alpha males... rape like encounters in her novels speak to that fetish of hers... shudder.

Have you seen images of Keanu Reaves taking pictures with pretty women and how he (seemingly almost purposefully and specifically for the camera) will have his arms around the girls without touching them and palms up facing directly at the camera?

I bet he gets approached by more women than Biden and he's figured this whole thing out pretty well, IMO.

Biden truly may be one old dog you can't teach.

It's interesting how much this blog pushes Biden and makes anyone newer sound silly. You folks must be older on average than I thought.

Didn't work last time, even against Trump. We can have an old candidate but not an old milquetoast candidate. Biden is most milquetoast, and firmly old guard. We need someone whose policy stems from conviction, not calculation. Biden conveys the sense of a robot barney fife that eats way too many benzos.

And yes, his behavior compiled in those videos is weird as ----, there is no way you can watch it and be comfortable with your daughter being the child in some of those clips. Look at the kids faces...so much discomfort.

"But trump is so much worse!!"

Does it need to be the same as trump to be uncool?

Yeah, because Liberals move on from every situation where they are proven to have overreacted. Welcome to fair play. Sucks, doesn't it?

A few awkward moments in videos are maybe icky to watch but knowing how to handle kids is not as easy as it seems... their small stature and a variety of other things play into it... and some kids are shy and get the ickies no matter who is touching them... I have worked with kids and I know that some instances it can be tricky... in some jobs there is extensive training on how to handle kids I'm not kidding about that. In the mean time if what you see bothers you so much I suggest you go see your therapist if you need to... not every w touch is an act of sexual molestation and not everyone is a pervert.

Biden has never talked about dating one of his kids or how sexy one of his kids is...or grabbing a woman by the -------- because he can. Nor has he had a mistress speak out... or a hooker share intimate details about him.. or a reputation of being a playboy wannabe... paying off mistresses NDA, News paper buddies buying up the rights to stories... not to mention his best friends... the list is never ending.

Yeah OTTO there is some basis for comparison so get off your high horse and stop being stupid. I repeat go see your therapist if you need to. You are comparing apples to oranges you little fruit cake.

You don't have what it takes to match wits with a liberal because you demonstrate thinking so typical of a conservative ... you have tunnel vision... you see one one thing as the sum total... and you waste a lot of bandwidth with your silly summations.

Trumplethinskin has bragged about walking in on beauty contestants ... naked young women... because he could "he owned the right to do so"... which sounds to me like the rich version of a peeping tom.

Oh yeah Biden cops a feel while the cameras are rolling... seriously? How feckless are you? (rhetorical question)

Give us the list of Biden's wives... he's had two... tell of his reputation with them. His reputation all around.

Compare that to Trumplethinskins wives... and his reputation.

SKRU both you snowflakes... take your meds see your shrink.

Lotta words, lotta anger there buddy. Off base, as far as what you said about me, but I dont get the idea you are interested in what anyone thinks unless they already agree with you.

Re read my post.

Does something g have to be the same as trump to be uncool?

I dont think he is sexually harassing anyone most likely, but it shows an outrageous lack of awareness on his part in a way that does come across as very creepy.

Re read until you understand that a trump deflection is not an appropriate response.

Also, your statements are only logical if we were already in the general with trump against Biden.

Speaking of training on how to interact with children in the workplace (which you were), I have worked in a public school and rule #1 on how to interact with children is to not touch them.
