Todd Blodgett Opinion: GAFFE-PRONE BIDEN’S INCURABLE PROBLEM

Todd Blodgett

In August of 2019, CNN’s Anderson Cooper asked Joe Biden, “So, to gun owners out there who say, well, a Biden administration means they’re going to come for my guns?”  Biden replied, “Bingo! You’re right, if you have an assault weapon.” On September 13, 2019, then-Democratic presidential candidate and former U.S. Representative Beto O’Rourke said, “Hell, yes, we’re going to take away your AR-15, your AK-47.  We’re not going to allow it to be used against our fellow Americans anymore.” On March 2, 2020, candidate Joe Biden told Mr. O’Rourke, “you’re going to take care of the gun problem with me,” if Biden is elected. The former VP added, “you’re going to be the one that leads this effort.  I’m counting on you.” Based on what’s been said, how is it not entirely reasonable to conclude that a President Biden would seek to confiscate semi-automatic firearms?

Fast-forward to March 10, 2020, to Detroit, Michigan.  In a heated exchange with Biden, a blue-collar worker expressed his concern that a Biden presidency would undermine Second Amendment rights, and prohibit owning semi-automatic weapons.  Perhaps forgetting his previous statement, Biden told the man he was “full of shit”, before claiming, “I did not say that.” When the guy reminded Biden that video proved his claim, the ex-VP denied that, too, saying, “it’s simply a lie.”  Before walking away, Biden erroneously called the AR-15 an “AR-14” – which doesn’t exist, for common use. He then admonished the worker, “don’t be such a horse’s ass.” Aside from alienating some UAW (United Auto Workers) union members over an issue of great importance to them, the thin-skinned Biden again showed that he’s still not ready for prime time.   What’s REALLY going on here reveals Biden’s incurable problem.

Biden was first elected as a U.S. Senator in 1972, decades before the internet materialized.  Back then, and for the first three of his six re-elections, candidates could still cleverly say one thing to Second amendment supporters, and then downplay it to gun control proponents.  Today, though, anyone can download video from YouTube and other sources and draw their own conclusions. While there’s speculation that the 77-year-old Biden may show some signs of early-onset dementia, the Democrats’ REAL problem is that their frontrunner is of a bygone political era.  As presidential candidates, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and George H.W. Bush faced similar problems when they ran against Ronald Reagan, whose media savvy far exceeded theirs. Against Donald Trump – whose media skill nearly equals Reagan’s – means that this very real problem will likely erupt, again.  And again. Why can’t the Democrats see that Biden’s ‘sell-by’ date expired decades ago?

As a candidate, O’Rourke expressly advocated confiscating semi-auto guns; Biden, in March, tied his horse to that cart.  Not only will Biden pay for this mistake for the campaign’s duration, but Democrats can probably now say goodbye to Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and even several other states that Hillary Clinton carried in 2016.  In recent weeks, Joe Biden won Primaries in Michigan, North Carolina, Mississippi, Missouri, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, Arkansas, Idaho, Arizona, Tennessee, Florida and Oklahoma. But against President Trump, can Biden win ANY of those states – except, possibly, Virginia?

The Biden who won those races didn’t suddenly become an effective, self-disciplined, articulate, poised candidate; he prevailed only because in the run-up to Super Tuesday, candidates Mike Bloomberg, Tom Steyer, Pete Buttigieg, and Amy Klobuchar all withdrew from the race.  So, by default, old Joe got their votes. But should Biden be nominated, it’s almost inevitable that by default, millions of Democrats – and, especially working-class Americans – will vote for Donald Trump.

    Many seem to have forgotten how the Obama/Biden administration handled the H1N1 virus outbreak and how many died. If my memory serves me correctly, I think there were nearly 14,000 deaths from H1N1 or “swine flu” virus. If this virus we are facing now, had happened back in 2009, when the Obama/Biden administration was basically ignoring the H1N1 virus, things would be much, much worse than they are today.

    As far as how Joe Biden would deal with this corona virus; he wouldn’t have a clue unless of course Neil Kinnock, would have given a speech about it earlier.

    PS…Todd, once again, great OP/ED. I enjoy your willingness to share your opinions, knowing full well there will be people willing to besmirch your reputation and question your integrity. Keep up the good work, as I now you will.

    Joe Biden likes to portray himself as “Middle Class Joe” on the campaign trail, but make no mistake: His lifestyle places him among the elite. Take Biden’s current 12,000 square-foot residence in Virginia, for example. Purchased by a well-connected donor in 2016 for $4.25 million, his home is complete with five bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, marble fireplaces, a gym and a sauna. It also boasts parking to accommodate “over 20 cars” for “the most lavish of events.” In 2017, Joe and Jill Biden also purchased a vacation home for $2.7 million in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, in addition to their existing home in Wilmington worth more than $1.2 million. Dispelling the “Middle Class Joe” myth, the income he collects from just one paid speech is more than most Americans make over the course of several years. Recent tax returns also reveal the Bidens have made more than $15 million in the time since leaving the vice presidency.

    You call Biden “thin-skinned”? Perhaps true but that isn’t a reason to not vote for him. Look at the man in the White House for another example of thin-skinned.
    You claim that some UAW workers will back away from Joe because of his stance. That is probably true but the union-busting right is not a friend of labor.
    You make fun of him for calling a an AR-15 an AR-14 but the man in WH makes gaffes all the time and it isn’t (to you) a reason to disparage him or not vote for him.
    You point out that YouTube videos exist that show Joe is not telling the truth, but, the same videos exist for the man in the White House that show he is not honest.
    And you once again show your love for RR who was not a saint and who did a great deal of harm to this country.

      Ask yourself if maybe you aren’t just used to politicians pretending to be ‘humble’? It’s a sure bet that if someone is running for president and is trying to sell themself as ‘humble’… they are a damn liar. Trump does not do humble…he doesn’t need it, so, he just doesn’t bother with it… and you can’t handle it.

        I said nothing about humble politicians. You are correct that Trump isn’t humble. He is a narcissist and misogynistic. He is 99.9% concerned with his feelings, his image and his well-being. He is a con man who is excellent at conning people into believing he has the answer for everything. His biggest fault? He refuses to listen to anyone but himself.

          Who cares what you said? Trump does not bother with humble, and you cannot handle it, because you like your politicians to spoon-feed their ‘humble lies’ to you just like you have been spoon-fed forever.
          “Mommy! Did you hear what the mean Mr. Trump said??”

            You must like politicians that ram their views down your throat and don’t give a damn about you? You are a conned man.

    Never read a opinion piece that is so FOS as this article. Nothing about the present slime ball and chef who recently called covid-19 a hoax. Economy going straight down the toilet due to inept leadership that defunded pandemic programs set up to deal with our now disaster.

      @ Anonymous: This is an OPINION column, not an “article”, as you falsely claimed.

      What’s “so FOS” about it? Can you cite any claims herein which are untrue, or inaccurate?

      I’ll wait.

      We’ll all be dead before this genius can refute anything.
