Yesterday I introduced the term “Biden Hidin’” or “Hidin’ Biden” to the political lexicon used on this blog. This is the idea that Joe Biden is so unpredictable that his handlers can’t let him out in public unless they can control the environment and thus the narrative.
Today, I’ve collected some recent examples of failures to keep the former Vice President on message. Joe Biden only does two things consistently, say the dumbest things and he can’t keep his hands off women while in public. Oh, and he has nothing but contempt for average people.
Lastly, before I get to these stories, remember that Bernie and Pocahontas are stuck in Washington D.C. for the impeachment show and can’t campaign during this last week before the Iowa Caucus. Thus, Joe Biden has unfettered access to voters and is the only frontrunner hopscotching around Iowa. As a result, Joe is getting the maximum media exposure and royally screwing it up as I will show.
Biden raised in the black church
DES MOINES, Iowa — Joe Biden spoke of his connection to black voters at an NAACP event Sunday afternoon and claimed his “political identity” was molded by minorities in his home state of Delaware.
Biden: “I was raised in the black church”
“I have a lot of black support because that’s where I come from. I was raised in the black church, politically, not a joke,” the former vice president said in Des Moines. “When I got into politics, I was the only white guy working on the east side, in the projects, because these were the guys I grew up with. These were the guys I worked with.”
Biden says “Go vote for someone else”
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden snapped at a voter in Iowa in Tuesday as the 77-year-old candidate put his hands on the man and told him to go vote for someone else.
“I’m going to support you if you win the nomination because we got to get rid of Trump but what are we going to do about climate change?” the man asked Biden. “Now, you say you are against pipelines, but then you want to replace these gas lines, that’s not going to work.” . . .
Joe Biden Gets Physical With Voter; Later Claims He Wants Michelle Obama to be his VP
Biden put his hand on the man’s chest and gently pushed him away, telling the man, “go vote for someone else.”
Here is another version of the same story
“No no no… go vote for someone else,” Biden said while patting him on the chest. “You’re not going to vote for me in the primary.”
“What was even more shocking was how Biden pushed and poked me, and then took hold of my jacket with both hands as he lectured me,” he wrote.Biden takes heat after sparring with Iowa voter who challenged him on climate change
Biden on Obamas: Michelle for VP, Barack for Supreme Court
At a campaign stop in Muscatine, Iowa, Biden was asked if he would consider appointing Obama to the Supreme Court.
“Yeah, I would, but I don’t think he’d do it,” Biden responded. “He’d be a great Supreme Court justice.”
But the voter retorted back, “Second question is – which Obama?”
Biden: ‘I sure would like Michelle to be the vice president’
“Well I sure would like Michelle to be the vice president,” Biden said.

Obamas don’t like Joe
Please remember that Barack Obama has consistently refused to endorse Joe Biden or be associated with him. This sounds like a move that is both desperate and begging for recognition.
The rift between the Obamas and Biden is deep.
It was Saturday evening at The Essence Festival and CBS News anchor Gayle King was gently prodding former first lady Michelle Obama about the 2020 presidential race and how she felt about current frontrunner Joe Biden. “Has anybody caught your eye?” The first lady just reiterated: “Barack and I are going to support whoever wins the primary.” Well, what about the “dust-up” between Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and former Vice President Biden — have any thoughts? “No, I do not.” King followed up with a general question: “What are the qualities that you think make a good president?” Among those the first lady mentioned: “Someone who is careful with their words.”
Those are not exactly words you would use to describe Biden. If the Obamas’ silence on Biden was loud from the beginning, it now approaches a deafening roar.
The Obamas’ silence on Joe Biden is deafening
As Biden’s polls slide and he loses whatever aura of inevitability he may have had because of his comments on segregation and busing — issues brought to the fore by a pair of young, black candidates — he has been left to twist in the wind. It is stunning that as Biden struggles to recover from his self-inflicted wounds regarding race, the first African American president, whom Biden loyally served for eight years, has not offered a word of comfort.
I think the more you know about Joe, the more voters will say “No.” Too bad for the Democrat establishment that Joe is their standard bearer. Whatever voters think they will get with Joe in the White House, it certainly won’t be anything like the Obama Administration and the Obamas will be the first to tell you that. Joe makes Democrats nostalgic for Al Gore. Lastly, if Joe underperforms in early primaries, he might find himself testifying at the impeachment show…if Republican Senators are dumb enough to prolong the travesty with witnesses.
