Webb Out, Biden Out and What Difference Does It Make

By A.P. Dil­lon

Hillary was in front of the Beng­hazi panel. Her avowed ene­mies sat on the other side, ask­ing the ques­tions. But what dif­fer­ence does it make?

As we saw with the first Demo­c­rat debate, there was a lot of yelling, social­ism and talk of ‘free stuff’. I’m going to go ahead and say the sec­ond debate will be more of the same and will fea­ture Hillary Clin­ton try­ing to one-​up Bernie Sanders on just how far Left she can really go. Some­one ought to bring a limbo bar.

On Octo­ber 20th, we saw Jim Webb drop out of the Demo­c­rat pack. On his way out the door, he sent off a part­ing shot at Hillary Clin­ton who dur­ing the debate called Repub­li­cans ‘the enemy’. Webb said, “The other party’s not the enemy. They’re the opposition.”

Biden out the windowThe very next day, Vice Pres­i­dent Biden ended his annoy­ingly long period soul-​searching on whether or not to run. Biden pretty much repeated what Webb said. Sens­ing a theme here?

Here’s part of his remarks announc­ing his non-​candidacy:

“I believe we have to end the divi­sive par­ti­san pol­i­tics that is rip­ping this coun­try apart. And I think we can. It’s mean-​spirited. It’s petty. And it’s gone on for much too long. I don’t believe like some do that it’s naïve to talk to Republicans.

I don’t think that we should look at Repub­li­cans as our ene­mies. They are oppo­si­tion, they’re not our ene­mies. For the sake of the coun­try, we have to work together.”

This, from the Vice Pres­i­dent of the most divi­sive admin­is­tra­tion in our country’s his­tory, with a Pres­i­dent who has refused to work with Repub­li­cans from day one.

‘We have to work together’
Right. Divi­sive VP, heal thy­self.
Joe, in 2014 you said ‘there is no Repub­li­can party’ and ‘Democ­rats would ben­e­fit from hav­ing a viable nego­ti­at­ing part­ner’. This is just one of dozens of examples.

Biden went on to talk about “com­pro­mise”, the empha­sis added is mine:

“As the Pres­i­dent has said many times before, com­pro­mise is not a dirty word. But look at it this way, folks — how does this coun­try func­tion with­out con­sen­sus? How can we move for­ward with­out being able to arrive at con­sen­sus? Four more years of this kind of pitched bat­tle may be more than this coun­try can take. We have to change it.”

‘Com­pro­mise’
I’m old enough to remem­ber Obama’s Sequester.

‘Four more years’
Wait, did Joe just slam Obama (and him­self) with the POTUS stand­ing right next to him?
I think he did. We re-​elected ‘Hope and Change’ and received more of the same eter­nal ‘cri­sis’ du jour and divi­sive rhetoric. In August, 71% of Amer­i­cans were say­ing they are unhappy with the direc­tion the coun­try is going in.

Biden run­ning would ensure another four years of that wrong direc­tion and that ‘pitched bat­tle’, so he’s toss­ing the hot potato to Hillary. Po-​tay-​toe, Po-​tah-​toe.

‘We have to change it’
So, not get­ting in the race to stop Hillary from being four more years of Obama style divi­sive­ness is the answer? Don’t for­get all the racial heal­ing this admin­is­tra­tion promised us yet deliv­ered the exact oppo­site. Where’s that YES WE CAN, Joe?

So, now the Democ­rats have lost the one can­di­date who is prob­a­bly best suited to actu­ally do what Biden is sug­gest­ing needs to be done. That figured.

What we’re left with is a Social­ist and a Ser­ial Liar in the top spots. There’s also a pompous, Ivory Tower Elit­ist, and two rea­son­ably inef­fec­tual Gov­er­nors. One of which had only 10 peo­ple con­sid­ered major donors to his campaign.

YES THEY CAN!

Hillary was in front of the Benghazi panel. Her avowed enemies sat on the other side, asking the questions. But what difference does it make?

As we saw with the first Democrat debate, there was a lot of yelling, socialism and talk of ‘free stuff’.  I’m going to go ahead and say the second debate will be more of the same and will feature Hillary Clinton trying to one-up Bernie Sanders on just how far Left she can really go. Someone ought to bring a limbo bar.

On October 20th, we saw Jim Webb drop out of the Democrat pack. On his way out the door, he sent off a parting shot at Hillary Clinton who during the debate called Republicans ‘the enemy’. Webb said,  “The other party’s not the enemy. They’re the opposition.”

Biden out the windowThe very next day, Vice President Biden ended his annoyingly long period soul-searching on whether or not to run. Biden pretty much repeated what Webb said.  Sensing a theme here?

Here’s part of his remarks announcing his non-candidacy:

“I believe we have to end the divisive partisan politics that is ripping this country apart. And I think we can. It’s mean-spirited. It’s petty. And it’s gone on for much too long. I don’t believe like some do that it’s naive to talk to Republicans.

I don’t think that we should look at Republicans as our enemies. They are opposition, they’re not our enemies. For the sake of the country, we have to work together.”

This, from the Vice President of the most divisive administration in our country’s history, with a President who has refused to work with Republicans from day one.

‘We have to work together’
Right. Divisive VP, heal thyself.
Joe, in 2014 you said ‘there is no Republican party’ and ‘Democrats would benefit from having a viable negotiating partner’.  This is just one of dozens of examples.

Biden went on to talk about “compromise“, the emphasis added is mine:

“As the President has said many times  before, compromise is not a dirty word. But look at it this way, folks – how does this country function without consensus? How can we move forward without being able to arrive at consensus? Four more years of this kind of pitched battle may be more than this country can take.  We have to change it.”

‘Compromise’ 
I’m old enough to remember Obama’s Sequester.

‘Four more years’
Wait, did Joe just slam Obama (and himself) with the POTUS standing right next to him?
I think he did. We re-elected ‘Hope and Change‘ and received more of the same eternal ‘crisis’ du jour and divisive rhetoric. In August,  71% of Americans were saying they are unhappy with the direction the country is going in.

Biden running would ensure another four years of that wrong direction and that  ‘pitched battle’, so he’s tossing the hot potato to Hillary. Po-tay-toe, Po-tah-toe.

‘We have to change it’  
So, not getting in the race to stop Hillary from being four more years of Obama style divisiveness is the answer? Don’t forget all the racial healing this administration promised us yet delivered the exact opposite.  Where’s that YES WE CAN, Joe?

So, now the Democrats have lost the one candidate who is probably best suited to actually do what Biden is suggesting needs to be done. That figured.

What we’re left with is a Socialist and a Serial Liar in the top spots. There’s also a pompous,  Ivory Tower Elitist, and two reasonably ineffectual Governors. One of which had only 10 people considered major donors to his campaign.

YES THEY CAN!
