Former Vice President Joe Biden launched his third bid for the presidency, positioning himself as a trusted champion of the middle class eager to take the fight to President Donald Trump. In a video released early Thursday morning, Biden said that 'we are in a battle for the soul of this nation.' Biden's first public scheduled event will come Monday afternoon in Pittsburgh, where he will speak to members of the Teamsters union about rebuilding the middle class. He'll then travel to early primary and caucus states before wrapping up his launch week back in Philadelphia, where advisers say he lay out a vision bringing Americans together in a polarized time.

Joe, you lost your soul when you started promoting mass incarceration of mostly people of color. If you ever had a soul. My recollection is you also opposed busing to integrate schools. WTF? I rode four or five miles to get to school in my rural community. Just the bad luck of living at the start of the bus route. It wasn't harmful to kids to ride a bus, and it wasn't harmful to have racial integration in otherwise segregated schools.

And don't get me going on your shameful role as Justice Commmittee chair for the Judge Thomas confirmation hearing.

You have been a neoliberal since before the term was coined, pushing the Wall Street pro war agenda of your financial backers while pretending to be "Joe Sixpack," friend of the working man.


Hang onto your hat. You're going down the tubes this time just like your last two efforts to be corporate panderer in chief.

Ronald Reagan was the oldest president ever elected, at 68. He was widely reported to be disabled by dementia for much of the time he was in office. If Biden is elected, he will be older when he enters office than Reagan was when he finished his term.

Trump was even older than Reagan, 70 years old when elected. People on this web site differ about whether Trump had any marbles left to lose.

If Biden enters office in 2021, he will be 8 years older than Trump when he came to power.

The reason Dems aren't bringing this up as an issue is that Sanders is a year older than Biden.

Didn't know 'America' had much of a soul left. But go ahead and battle for it, Biden.


I'd like to know how many of the now numerous homeless people in my cushy little suburb didn't (or did) make it through the winter. But I hear they don't keep count.

Biden is as charismatic, visionary and electable as the reincarnation of Bob Dole. It was his turn, too.
