Joe Biden Is About to Pick His Running Mate, and That Choice Could Have Extremely Serious Implications for Our Future

Originally, I wasn’t going to write about Joe Biden’s search for a running mate, but I changed my mind.  Most of the time running mate picks are of relatively little consequence as far as the election outcome is concerned, and many of those on tickets that do not ultimately win end up being forgotten by the public fairly rapidly.  If you doubt this, just try to name the running mates of failed presidential candidates Bob Dole, Michael Dukakis and John Kerry off the top of your head.  In fact, many of you that are reading this article probably cannot name Hillary Clinton’s running mate without looking it up.  But this time is different.

In 2020, Joe Biden is very likely picking someone that will become the president of the United States.

And I am not talking about in eight years either.  Over the past couple of years, Joe Biden has frequently made comments that indicate he may not serve more than one term.  The following comes from the Detroit News

In an effort to ease concerns about his age, the 77-year-old presumptive Democratic nominee has said he wouldn’t seek reelection if his mental or physical health declined. He has also referred to himself as a “transition candidate,” acting as a bridge to a younger generation of leadership.

Biden is rarely known for sticking to a script, and the comments are evidence of his candid style. But they’re also contributing to intense speculation about who is best positioned to lead the party after him.

And considering the fact he is currently 77 years old, there is absolutely no guarantee that he will even make it through a single term.

Of course the Biden campaign has been saying all of the right things about his health, and a recent three page health assessment described him as “healthy” and “vigorous”

Dr. Kevin O’Connor of The George Washington University released a three-page medical summary of Biden’s health on Tuesday at the request of his patient, in which he described Biden as a “healthy, vigorous, 77-year-old male, who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency to include those as Chief Executive, Head of State and Commander in Chief.”

But everyone can clearly see the Joe Biden of 2020 is definitely not the old Joe Biden.

I was watching YouTube recently and a Joe Biden fundraising ad popped up before the video I was going to view, and out of curiosity I decided to watch it.  As I watched his pitch, I was stunned by his inability to get the words out.  This was a recorded ad, so his team could have redone it over and over again until they got it perfect, and apparently the version I saw was the best that they could come up with.

Of course there isn’t anything wrong with declining in our capabilities as we get older.  It happens to every generation, and it is going to happen to all of our leaders eventually.

But with Joe Biden at such a clearly advanced state of decline, many believe it was a huge mistake for the Democrats to nominate him.  On his podcast, Joe Rogan made this point very bluntly earlier this year

That’s the problem the Democratic Party is having right now with that Joe Biden guy. You guys have to be able to call it out. You can’t let this slide, because everybody else sees it, and Trump is going to eat him alive,” Rogan said. “He’s going to eat that guy alive.”

“The guy can barely remember what he’s talking about while he’s talking,” Rogan said. “I’m looking at this like a medical condition.”

If the election was held today, the polls indicate Joe Biden would have a really good chance of beating Donald Trump.

And if Biden wins and he can’t make it through the next four years, that would mean his running mate would become the next president of the United States.

In fact, there are some people who are speculating that there is the possibility Joe Biden may not even make it to election day in November.

So whoever Biden picks as his running mate may have to fill his shoes sooner rather than later.

At this point, it appears that Kamala Harris, Karen Bass and Susan Rice are the three leading contenders.  The following comes from CNN

In more than two dozen interviews with CNN in recent days, members of Congress, top Democratic donors, Biden allies and others close to the vice presidential vetting process said California Rep. Karen Bass, the 66-year-old chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, has gained real traction in the late stage of the search. Amid furious last-minute lobbying and speculation about Biden’s historic decision, California Sen. Kamala Harris and Susan Rice, Barack Obama’s former national security adviser, are also believed to be among the most serious contenders.

Personally, I think the choice is going to be either Harris or Bass based on the buzz I am hearing.

Harris has been widely viewed as the favorite throughout this process, but Bass seems to have picked up a lot of momentum right here at the end.

In either case, Biden is going to face a lot of criticism for his choice.  The previous remarks Bass made about Fidel Castro are starting to get a lot of attention, and her links to communist organizations go back for decades.

As for Harris, her big problem is a lot of people just don’t like her.  “Likability” is one of the most important traits a politician in America can have today, and that is one area where she really comes up short.  It is the big reason why her presidential campaign completely flopped, and it is definitely a factor in why so many top Democrats have been publicly lobbying against her.

If for some reason Biden was not able to make it to election day, all of a sudden either Harris or Bass would be Trump’s opponent, and needless to say that would dramatically shift the outlook of the race.

On the other hand, if Biden does make it to November and he is able to win, there is a very good chance he will not make it all the way through his first term.

And that would mean “Vice-President Harris” or “Vice-President Bass” would become the leader of the free world.

The last time a vice-president ascended to the presidency without being elected was when Gerald Ford replaced Richard Nixon in 1974.

We could soon see it happen again, and considering our nation is moving into extremely troubled times, such a transition could occur at a very critical moment in our history.

This choice by Joe Biden could have extremely serious implications for our future, and from what I am hearing his pick is coming very soon.

    Bit’em is likey to die of brain hemorrhage and he is not a healthy man and indicated by his brain going and gaffes. This will put in the woman Negress they always wanted on you.

    They will be the lowest and worst of women who is already below even the worst of the Negro man who is even below the worst of your white man.

    They will be offering you the bottom of the barrel. Demoncraps never offer you their best but the WORST of them.

    THE boot’m line is Joe can NEVER be accepted as your President as he is unfit and unqualifed for office and the only way to get him in is by MASSIVE voter fraud. :twisted:

  • pohknee
