Sloppy Joe Biden Makes a Decent Mess

Here is Tony Perkins on sloppy Joe Biden:

If Democrats kicked off their 2020 campaign today, they’d have some pretty interesting bumper stickers. “I heart socialism!” “Killing newborns is a choice!” “Non-binaries for Bernie!” “Friends don’t let conservatives become friends!” They’re the party of no babies, no borders, no God, and now – as Joe Biden so painfully reminded everyone – no decency.

A day after Congressmen Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) surprised everyone with their unusually close friendship, the former vice president made it clear that there’s no room in his party for mutual respect. Hours after referring to Mike Pence as a “decent guy” during a forum in Omaha, the man who may have been the party’s best shot at moderate voters, walked his comment back.

LGBT activists like Cynthia Nixon were furious, tweeting that Pence is “America’s most anti-LGBT leader… Please consider how this falls on the ears of our community.” Chastened, the former VP apologized. “You’re right, Cynthia. I was making a point in a foreign policy context, that under normal circumstances a Vice President wouldn’t be given a silent reaction on the world stage. But there is nothing decent about being anti-LGBTQ rights, and that includes the vice president.”

This is the man who was supposed to be the party’s counterweight to liberal fanaticism. The grown-up in the room who’s likeable and understands the value of bipartisanship. As far as most people were concerned, that was Biden’s only path to the nomination – distinguishing himself from the party’s extremism, not embracing it. Now even he’s exposed as just another pathetic puppet of the radical Left. “If Biden enters the race only to spend the next year apologizing for being insufficiently ‘woke,’” the Washington Examiner’s Philip Klein writes, “he’ll just look like a complete buffoon, without convincing any skeptics who will have plenty of alternatives to choose from who are younger and more in touch with contemporary sensibilities on the Left.”
