It is horrible to watch a well-known person mentally slipping away right in front of your very eyes

Former vice president Joe Biden went after the voting record of Democratic front-runner Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., on the debate stage Tuesday night, slamming Sanders for supporting legislation that gave gun manufacturers absolute immunity from liability for gun violence, but in doing so, Biden grossly overstated the number of gun deaths since the 2007 law passed.
Biden, who says he is confident that he will sweep the lead in South Carolina’s primaries just days away — despite crushing losses behind Sanders in the three previous early voting states– lambasted Sanders’ record on gun control, particularly his vote in support of a law that protects firearms manufacturers from being held liable when gun violence and crimes are perpetrated. Sanders later disavowed the legislation in 2016.
“Imagine if I stood here and said we give immunity to drug companies, we give immunity to tobacco companies. That has caused carnage on our streets,” Biden said. “150 million people have been killed since 2007 when Bernie voted to exempt the gun manufacturers from liability, more than all the wars, including Vietnam from that point on.”
The heavily inflated figure misrepresented gun deaths in America since 2007. From 2007 to 2017, the number of firearm deaths in the U.S. was 373,663. This number includes both violent firearm deaths and unintentional or accidental deaths, according to the Center for American Progress, an organization that promotes progressive values.
More in line with Biden’s figures, an analysis of FBI statistics by the Center found that from 2008 through 2017, more than 1.5 million aggravated assaults involved a firearm, with rates varying significantly across the states.
“I have cast thousands of votes, including bad votes. That was a bad vote,” Sanders said in defense on Tuesday night.
“If I’m elected, NRA [the National Rifle Association], I’m coming for you and gun manufacturers, I’m gonna take you on and I’m gonna beat you,” Biden said.
Speaking alongside six other Democratic contenders vying for the presidential nomination, Biden insisted he is the only candidate who can push major gun legislation through Congress if elected.
He boasted that while serving in the Senate, he backed the assault weapons ban that stipulated magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition be eliminated, which was not reauthorized after its sunset provision that expired in September 2004.
Biden also helped pass the Brady Bill in 1994, which mandated federal background checks on firearm purchasers in the United States and imposed a five-day waiting period on purchases.
Sleepy Joe Biden is obviously not well.
Just the other day he asked South Carolinians to vote for him in his run for the U.S. Senate.
He also recently said that his deceased son was the Former Attorney General of the United States of America.
Most of the time he doesn’t not seem to know where he is or which side of the stage to face.
And, according to Rush Limbaugh, speaking on his radio program yesterday,
Plugs claimed last night that he worked with the Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping on the Paris climate accord. Well, Deng Xiaoping has been dead, room temperature, for 20 years. Deng Xiaoping is not the head honcho of the Chi-Coms. The head honcho of the ChiComs is a guy named Xi Jinping, and he’s becoming Mao Tse-tung Jr., becoming a total authoritarian. It’s why Crazy Bernie loves this guy.
And Crazy Bernie’s out saying nobody has raised the percentage of people out of poverty like the ChiComs have. What a crock. My God, this guy’s dangerous. He’s a crotchety, funny looking guy, but he’s dangerous. But poor Plugs claiming he worked with Deng Xiaoping on the Paris climate accord. The Chinese have nothing to do with the Paris climate accord anyway, except to go up and go (raspberry) we’re not playing. Deng Xiaoping left office in 1992. Deng Xiaoping was not even present when Plugs was vice president.
And then, did you hear about this? Plugs said he got arrested trying to greet Nelson Mandela as he was coming out of jail on Robben Island. “Yes, I was in Soweto! I was running around Soweto trying to avoid being necklaced, and I got arrested! I got arrested trying to meet Nelson Mandela.” Joe Biden was not in Africa when Mandela was released from Robben Island. (sigh)
I understand why the Democratic Elite are allowing Biden to stay in the race.
Bloomberg, the last-minute “savior” has all of the charisma of a ceramic turtle.
At least, Sleepy Joe has some fire in the belly.
Unfortunately for the Dems, he also has bats in his belfry.
So, he does not have a chance of stopping Bernie Sanders.
All the Former Vice President is doing is embarrassing himself, which is awfully hard to do, as he was no brain surgeon to begin with.
Last night’s Democratic Debate had all of the political effectiveness and decorum of a Three Stooges pie fight. (Hey, Moe!)
The Democratic Party’s embracing of “Democratic Socialism” (i.e., MARXISM) and the Far Left of the political spectrum has led them to the edge of a 2020 Presidential Election Political Tsunami, which just like the Great White Whale of Herman Melville’s novel “Moby Dick” will drag all of the TDS-obsessed Captain Ahabs of the Democrat Party down into an oceanic abyss which will take them years to crawl back out of.
And, it couldn’t happen to a “nicer” bunch.
Until He Comes,
