It’s Super Tuesday!

Look who dropped by Daisy Group early this morning!

Mayor Pete’s endorsed him! Beto’s endorsed him! Amy’s endorsed him!

And he’s received more Democratic votes than anyone else!

As some of y’all know, I’ve been supporting Joe for a long time – Hell, I supported him back to 2008, when he was on the ticket with Barack Obama – and I’ve been mocked, maligned and mistreated for it. (Take that, ex.)  But last night, lots more people agreed: the only candidate who can beat Donald Trump, and return America to greatness, is Joe Biden.

Want proof? Watch this video – Joe accepting the support of Mayor Pete.  He spoke without notes and – as I tweeted at his wunderkind campaign manager, Greg Schultz – it actually made me weepy. Wasn’t expecting that.

Please, everyone: do not call, email or text after 7 p.m. tonight.  It’s Super Tuesday!

    “Mayor Pete’s endorsed him! Beto’s endorsed him! Amy’s endorsed him!” Another three great reasons to support Bernie Sanders and Tulsi Gabbard instead.

    • Ronald O'Dowd says:

      Gyor,

      Nope. Gabbard is rabidly pro-Assad.

      • Shawn says:

        She’s not at all pro Assad at all. She’s pro not getting the US in regime change conflicts around the world. She’s been to war have you?

        • Ronald O'Dowd says:

          Shawn,

          You need to keep up: she met with Assad in 2017 during her “fact-finding” mission.

          • Shawn says:

            I know she did. As you said “a fact finding mission”. No indication that she was there to support him. She must be a Russian bot as Killery has tried to indicate too. Gabbard even though she is way too far to the left seems to be the only sane one of the bunch and oh how I loved when she handed Harris her ass on the debate stage.

          • Ronald O'Dowd says:

            OK. Here’s her quote on The View:

            “This regime change war we’ve been waging in Syria has not helped the Syrian people, it has made their lives worse off,” Gabbard said. “It has also undermined our national security.”

            She seems to believe that if the United States is not involved in regime change in Syria that that in and of itself is somehow better for the Syrian people than the outcome of regime change. Debatable at best, with the de facto result that Assad is able to remain in power, as an integral part of the triple axis: Russia, Iran and Syria. How is that good for American National Security? Simply doesn’t compute.

    It’s good that the folks who have little chance are dropping out so that the Democrats have a clear choice. I find Joe’s record too conservative to get behind but the important thing is that whoever wins is supported to beat Trump.

  3. The Doctor says:

    My fear, as an old guy who remembers, is that if Bernie gets the nomination this will be Nixon vs McGovern 2.0.

    • Ronald O'Dowd says:

      Doc,

      To some extent perhaps. But Latino support would mitigate the expected blowout.

      • Miles Lunn says:

        Blowouts like 1964, 1972, and 1984 are a thing of the past. Still if Bernie Sanders is chosen as leader, good chance Trump cracks the 50% mark and for someone as vile as him, that would be bad. My guess is in a Trump vs. Bernie, Bernie holds all the solid blue states, but loses all purple ones. That means no pick ups but loses Nevada, Minnesota, Maine, New Hampshire, Colorado, and Virginia and maybe even New Mexico. Also more importantly kills any chance of winning the senate so that will ensure GOP can stack the court. Likely costs them the House too while for state legislatures that vote, helps the GOP meaning in many swing states redistricting is gerrymandered in favour of GOP due to GOP controlling several.

    Crazy Joe who likes the youngins to rub the blond hair on his legs down at the local pool, sends kids to the middle east and other countries around the world to fight die or are maimed while at the same time other lawyer politicians like him send their own kids to countries like Ukraine to enrich themselves.

  5. Miles Lunn says:

    Joe Biden sort of reminds me here of Bill Davis or John Tory, very bland and doesn’t excite a lot. But that is what we need now after all the chaos by the orange Cheeto in the White House. Most Americans want reforms not a revolution. Bernie Sanders is way too left wing for most of US, possibly even Canada, but definitely the US. He may bring out some non-voting millennials, but he will turn away many boomers who generally vote. College educated white suburbanites used to vote GOP, but Trump has turned many them off and with Biden Democrats can win them. With Sanders many will reluctantly vote Trump, vote third party or stay home.

    Anyways I think Biden’s momentum will lead to him outperforming polls as many Bloomberg supporters switch to him. My predictions by state are:

    Biden:

    Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Arkansas, Minnesota, Oklahoma, and Texas

    Sanders:

    Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts, Colorado, Utah, and California.

  6. Speaking personally, I’m feeling the Bern!

  7. PJH says:

    Say G’bye Liz…..unless Biden picks her for V.P…..possibility?…..

    • Jim Keegan says:

      Only if he wants to kill any chance of defeating Trump.

    • Ronald O'Dowd says:

      PJH,

      The way Biden spoke of Pete makes him the VEEP frontrunner. But geographical, electoral and party equations could undo that further down the road. So I ain’t betting the farm.

  8. Chris Sigvaldason says:

    The “speech” Biden gave Tuesday night (about 10:15pm EST) doesn’t give me much confidence. Joe was a loud, screaming, meandering, slightly-senile old white guy. I can’t see many Bernie people showing any enthusiasm for that kind of Democrat ticket. Joe better pick an amazing VP candidate.

  9. Ronald O'Dowd says:

    Here’s my take: I expect Biden to also win Texas and Maine. First the good news: this marks the confirmation that the moderate wing of the party has the politician weight in 2020 and the electoral momentum. In my book, the political math is now there for Biden to be the nominee.

    Now the bad news: there’s absolutely no chance that 2020 can be 2008. Young people will rebel against the nominee in significant enough numbers to make Biden’s run a wash but the economy will doom Trump and make Biden President.

  10. Gilbert says:

    Joe Biden will win the democratic nomination. He’s probably healthier than Bernie Sanders, and he’s the establishment choice. However, I don’t consider him an impressive candidate.
