No-Show Joe – taking a page from the Hillary campaign

No-Show Joe – taking a page from the Hillary campaign

You know, I think President Trump might want to rechristen Sleepy Joe with a new nickname: No-Show Joe

Where in the world is Joe Biden?

While all the other candidates swarm the state of Iowa this weekend, Joe is a no-show.  Sure, he plans to turn up later this week.  You know, on his own good time.

No-Show Joe has been taking it slow – campaigning sparingly and avoiding voters.

Who’s running his campaign anyway?  The same people who advised Hillary to make one campaign appearance for every seven Donald Trump held? It got so bad in 2016, we were all left wondering where the hell is Hillary Clinton?

No-Show Joe seems to be using the “non-campaigning” campaign strategy.

And it doesn’t make sense to me.

Unlike Warren, Harris, Buttigieg, Gillibrand, Booker, Moulton and the rest of the clown car, Biden doesn’t have a job he’s neglecting in order to run. In fact, like slacker Beto, Joe really has oodles of time to hit the campaign trail, rub shoulders with voters (literally) and get out there among the people.

And yet.

He avoided the far-Left California Democrat convention last week.

And now is steering clear of Iowa while the rest of the competition campaigns this weekend — some in the most painfully embarrassing ways.

Right, Kirsten?

Yeah. I really don’t see No-Show Joe boozing it up in a gay bar.  But still. Why isn’t he out there pressing the flesh (literally)?

He’s running for the Democrat nomination, for Pete’s sake.

But just like Hillary before him, No-Show Joe can’t seem to be bothered to actually, you know, work for it.

Now, it could be that the folks running No-Show Joe’s campaign figure the only way to minimize Biden’s inevitable embarrassing gaffes is to simply keep him tucked away somewhere – only bringing him out when the environment is completely controlled.

Or possibly, like with Hillary Clinton, they know the more people are exposed to Biden, the less they like him.  So they’re limiting his public appearances to keep his poll numbers up.

Or maybe, like Hillary Clinton before him, No-Show Joe figures he has the nomination in the bag, so why bother with that pesky campaigning thing?

Then again, maybe No-Show Joe is just too damn old to keep pace.

And while he’s napping or swimming naked in his pool, the other candidates are out there working the crowds.  As a result, Sanders, Warren, Buttigieg, and even Harris are nipping at his heels.

Whatever the reason, the so-called Frontrunner seems to have a bad case of the Hillary Clintons.

Problem is, this isn’t 2016 when the DNC scared people out of running in order to prop Hillary up.  And taking this No-Show page out of Hillary’s campaign playbook this time around isn’t going to end well for Joe.

Then again, it didn’t end well for Hillary either.

    He has the nomination in the bag because the last 5 or 6 polls have him in the lead.
    He will pull a Hillary because he’s a boring old groper with no personality.

    Biden knows he doesn’t have a chance to win but he is the best the Dems have to throw out there as a candidate against President Trump’s sure win in 2020.

    “Pedo Joe” is currently in a hotel, with a gaggle of young girls to “entertain” him. He’s flying tommorrow to Iowa for a campaign event on Tuesday. “Dr. Jill,” is not there, so “Pedo Joe is in FAT CITY.

    I’m not flying “Pedo Joe,” but will fly a gaggle of DNC “Strategists” who will accompany “Pedo Joe” to his event. They predict as many as 300 “folks” may show-up. Wow!! The old PERVERT can really pack-em in!

    Joe Biden reminds me of an old introduction song to a 60s TV show

    And that’s Uncle Joe he’s a moving kind of slow at the junction. Petticoat Junction.

    Actually kind of prescient.

    Joe Biden’s campaign slogan: “Grope and Change”.

    Maybe the reason Hillary didn’t campaign like she should have was because she couldn’t — you know, because of that lingering case of 90-minute super-pneumonia that hit her on 9/11. You know the one we wingnuts foolishly believed was a seizure?

    Maybe she was physically unable to make these rallies; or maybe she couldn’t because she was showing too many symptoms of (harrumph, harrumph) you know what

    Here’s one way this may go down:
    Biden is in the race, doing the best he can by staying away from crowds, reporters and questions. His crew is responsible for stamping out all the old videos that are resurfacing, and they are explaining Joe’s positions on the crisis of the day.
    Maybe Joe doesn’t even show up for the debates. Why should someone who is so far ahead step on the stage with a bunch of newcomer wannabe’s who have nothing to lose by savaging him? The MSM will defend him all the way.
    So the DNC has “fixed” the super delegate problem by eliminating super delegates? No, not exactly. They have just decided that the super delegates can’t vote on the first ballot. So all Biden has to do is hang on long enough and well enough to have a split vote on the first ballot. At that point the super delegates can come in and decide the Dem presidential candidate like they did last time (Bernie will get a mountain cabin out of the deal).
    Possible twist at the end. Biden gets the nomination, or is close to getting it, when he gets a headache, or has a situation at home, or he decides he’s not physically up for the job, so he steps back and gives Hillary all of his supporters, a good chunk of the money he raised (gotta keep a little taste for all the trouble he has gone to), and his heartfelt endorsement.
    Since he has been positioning himself as the only sane and mature Democrat in the field, Hillary will fit right in with that meme (although I think she could teach the youngsters a thing or two about being a left wing ideolog).
    So Joe gets what he wants, a lot of attention and some money. Hillary gets what she wants, the nomination without having to campaign for it. Bernie gets what he wants, a dacha in Russia. And the Democrat rank and file get what they apparently want, to be screwed by their leaders again.
