Many Democrats pushed former Vice President Joe Biden to run against Hillary Clinton for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.
Biden didn’t as he was still grieving over the death of his beloved son, Beau Biden, a year earlier.
No one can blame Biden for grieving for his son, but a President has to be able to put that kind of grief behind him in order to best serve and run the country.
Biden has had another 2 years to get past his grief and now claims to be the best person to be President, a statement that could be the first indication that Biden is planning a run for the White House in 2020 to oppose Trump.
Fox News – Joe Biden says he’s the ‘most qualified person in the country to be president’ – Former Vice President Joe Biden said he would decide if he’s running for president in 2020 soon. But in the meantime, he’s confident he is up for the job.
“I think I’m the most qualified person in the country to be president. The issues that we face as a country today are the issues that I’ve worked on my whole life,” Biden told a crowd in Montana Monday, according to the Missoula Current.
Biden, 76, was at the University of Montana in Missoula Monday to promote his book, “Promise Me, Dad.” He said he would rely on his family to help him decide whether he’ll run for president in 2020.
The former senator admitted he’s a “gaffe machine,” but contended he’s honest.
“No one doubts what I say; the problem is I sometimes say all that I mean,” Biden said. “The question is what kind of nation are we becoming?” …
It’s hard to say just how loyal Biden really was to Obama’s socialist agenda, but we cannot discount the possibility that he was fully supportive of Obama’s socialist agenda.
One thing is certain, Biden regularly lied about opponent Mitt Romney during the 2012 presidential campaign.
Biden echoed Obama’s lies making Romney out to be anti-jobs by intentionally buying out companies and either closing them or moving them out of the country.
Romney purchased companies in dire financial trouble and worked hard to save them, some of which he did save.
When the truth was revealed to Biden, he just continued to spew the anti-Romney lies, proving he can’t be trusted or believed.
