Some questions for Joe Biden and also, perhaps, for his supporters.
- Why do we never see a wide camera shot of the audience at a Biden campaign event? I suspect it would be an embarrassment to the campaign in that it would confirm the lack of people or the lack of enthusiasm for the candidate. The fact that Joe can read a speech off the prompter and you never hear a reaction might be a giveaway that there may not be an audience.
- Will any reporter ever call his refusal to answer questions what it is, cowardice or fear to expose himself and his departing faculties?
- Will he ever give an unbiased reporter a sit-down interview? By that, I mean someone other than Stephanopolous, Todd, or Tapper (all former Dem operatives) or sometime commentators like Cardi B.
- Has anyone ever said that the Democratic Party needs to lose big in order to reinvent the party of Truman, Scoop Jackson, Sam Nunn, Moynihan, or any patriotic blue dog? Isn’t it true that should Biden win (God forbid), we will be told it was due to the progressive support? If he loses, won’t we be told that the party needs to become even more progressive?
- Biden told a bizarre story to his veterans’ meeting Tuesday. He said a Marine vet suffering from a brain injury got into his Dodge Ram truck, ran down a woman and her dog, killed her, loaded the woman into the truck, drove her to a sand pile, and then molested her. Beside the impression that we should fear vets (by the way, I am a vet, though not a wartime vet), has anyone ever heard this story before? I haven’t and I tried to find it on the internet but couldn’t. I won’t say it is just Joe being Joe, but I remain skeptical. Does anyone know if this happened? Anyone?
If any Ricochetti has any answers, I await them.
