ROGER SIMON: Biden Way Up in CNN Poll, but Will It Last?

via pjmedia:

With the Kentucky Derby right around the corner, Joe Biden appears to be way up in that other horse race, the Democratic presidential derby. He’s a fat 20 points above Bernie, who seems to be slipping. In fact, we might be able to put a fork in the geriatric socialist. It’s likely voters, even Democrat voters, are having trouble swallowing his declaration that terrorists should have the right to vote, one of the dumber statements made in the history of presidential politics. (What was or is going on in that man’s brain?)

But what about the others? They are so far back and there are so many of them that Joe, despite his also geriatric fumbling, may actually waltz into the nomination. Yes, it’s early and he’s gaffe-prone, blah, blah, blah, but still…

Let’s look at the rest of the pack. Standing out slightly, if we’re to believe CNN (hey, the clock is right once a day, etc.) are Warren and Buttigieg at eight and seven percent respectively. I’m surprised Warren is still holding, but the hitherto unknown Mayor Pete is more interesting and clearly has more potential. He is the “flavor of the month,” as they say in Hollywood. He projects an image of above-the-fray sincerity and calm intelligence — or is trying to. With an impressive academic pedigree, he wants us to believe he is not another unprincipled political hack largely driven by ambition.

Joe Biden’s Bad Judgements:

Unsurprisingly, there’s much more.

 

BIDEN THE LIAR:

Harold Schaitberger, president of the AFL-CIO-affiliated International Association of Firefighters, declared at a campaign rally for Joe Biden today that “Joe Biden is genuine. There’s nothing phony or artificial about Joe Biden.”

This is a spectacularly audacious claim about one of Washington’s most notorious BS artists.
