Can’t Keep My Hands to Myself

Updated on April 2, 2019

When you think that the Democratic Party can’t go any lower they dive into another dimension and prove us all wrong. For a man who has already failed in spectacular fashion at running for president he decides to lock himself up in his mancave and persist that “third time's the charm.”

Joe Biden is being accused of Lucy Flores of lude behavior during a rally. He gave her a peck on the back of her head at a rally which is a little weird, but then you realize Biden has a history of this kind of behavior.

There seems to be a certain level of intellectual dishonesty with this whole situation. Let us pass the obvious by saying what Biden did was inappropriate. Now, it seems the only reason why Biden was accused and is now being attacked is that he’s running for president. I don’t think we can say with a straight face that people like Elizabeth Warren would be attacking Biden if he wasn’t open to running.

This whole fiasco seems to have alarming similarities to Brett Kavanaugh, who if you don't remember was accused of raping a woman during his teen years. Don't get me wrong, kissing some on the back of the head and rape are two completely different things. We can see through the blatant hypocrisy and “get out of jail free card” that is given to Biden that wasn’t given to Kavanaugh.

As far as I’ve seen we don’t have evidence of this actually happening outside of the victim's testimony so once again both sides are equally believable. To the people who that say Kavanaugh case was different, please ask yourself why. Outside of the different parties how is this situation different from the other?

This story just goes to show that if you've invested in any other candidate but Bernie it’s time to sell sell sell.

Any attack on a candidate ultimately helps Bernie who has been consistently a solid candidate when it comes to approval rating. You can take a look at the polls here:

Sanders has been consistently within the 20-30 percent margin which is good for a primary with 1,000,000 people running.

Bernie has also been able to steal African American votes from Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, candidates who need that vote if they want any taste of the white house.

Bernie is the one who needs to be attacked, he is the “thought leader” of the party. If the other nominees want to win they need to attack the true target, Bernie Sanders.

      ReadMikenow, I would add to that I wouldn't be shocked if we see 3rd parties on the rise in this election. They didn't make much of an impact in 2016 but this election is a referendum on if we'll allow the Democratic Party to be overrun with socialist.

      Steve, "I don't believe at the moment that no major candidate on the Democratic side can beat Trump. "

      I agree.

      I have told liberals many times, in order to beat President Donald Trump in 2020, they are going to have to get a candidate that can attract voters away from his base. They have none.

      Bill Clinton was elected president the first time for two reasons...he appealed to a certain type of Republican...which drew votes away from GW Bush and Ross Perot being in the race took votes away.

      So, unless the Democrats come up with a candidate that appeals to a certain type of Republican voter, I think your assessment is very accurate.

      No I'm completely cool with them doing that Brad, it just boggles my mind that they shoot themselves in the foot and call it progress.

      True, but why not let them do their dirty stuff on each other.

      The democrats mutated into even worse people in this century, and now they are out of control.

      From what I'm seeing I don't believe at the moment that no major candidate on the Democratic side can beat Trump. They're simply too radical for some on their base and the vast majority of the country.

      Bernie is even now considered too right wing for the base... what

      Nice one. I would like Biden to go against Sanders for the primary. As i have said a lot, the democrats have a political diode. They can come down and bad mouth any of their opponents, but they won't let it come back on them

      They even take their traits of bad behavior and try to pin it on the opposition. Like they keep on about president Trump who hasn't done anything Biden bad since he ran for the presidency. And to even get it in a title they have to go back 10 or 15 years, and none of it is actually corroborated. But that doesn't stop them from regurgitating it over and over again as if it had been proven in a court of law.

      Sanders can be the Ross Perot of the 2020 election.
