Report: Obama wouldn’t endorse Biden because he might ’embarrass’ himself

Despite frequently boasting of his close personal friendship with former President Barack Obama, current President Joe Biden reportedly struggled to win the support of the man with whom he served in the White House as he conducted his 2020 campaign.

According to the Daily Wire, a new book about the complicated relationship between the two Democrats indicates that Obama stabbed Biden in the back by withholding his endorsement of his former VP for most of the 2020 election cycle because Obama considered him to be “a tragicomic caricature of an aging politician having his last hurrah.”

In their book Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency, authors Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes of NBC News and The Hill, respectively, detail the concerns held by Obama that:

…his former vice president would embarrass himself on the campaign trail and that the people around him would not be able to prevent a belly flop.

As Politco noted last year, the former president’s reluctance to go all-in on Biden’s presidential push was becoming more apparent as the campaign continued, with “anonymously sourced quotes” continuing to crop up, including one in which Obama reportedly warned, “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f – – – things up.”

Obama’s unwillingness to formally endorse Biden well into the Democratic primary season notably drew the attention of then-President Donald Trump, who said in April of last year:

I don’t know why President Obama hasn’t supported Joe Biden a long time ago. He feels something is wrong.

It does amaze me that President Obama hasn’t supported Sleepy Joe. It just hasn’t happened. When’s it gonna happen? Why isn’t he? He knows something that you don’t know, that I think I know, that you don’t know.

Allen and Parnes also assert that Biden’s campaign was marked by a seemingly endless series of strategic errors, but that the coronavirus pandemic provided the candidate with sufficient cover to “hide his biggest weakness, which is himself.”

One Biden aide even went so far as to explain that the overall 2020 campaign strategy was to “put your dumb uncle in the basement,” according to the Daily Wire.

Sadly, the tactic of keeping Biden hidden from public scrutiny has continued, despite the fact that he now occupies the highest office in the land. Well over 40 days into his administration, the president has yet to hold a formal solo press conference, something of which even CNN’s Jake Tapper took critical note:

The longer Biden’s handlers thwart the sort of media access granted by virtually all of his predecessors, the more obvious it will become to the American electorate that the long-standing rumors of the president’s cognitive decline were perhaps just the tip of the iceberg.

Dr Seuss books pulled because thy portray people in a way that is harmful or wrong. And the democrats along with the woke(broke) can portray people in a way that is harmful or wrong and it is ok. Books are bad and should be banned. political parties are the cats meow. Books teach the difference between good and bad!

People of today need to stop wearing their precious little feelings on their sleeves.

So sick of this bunch of thin skinned liberals. Don’t care how they feel. There is the side that finds nothing wrong with the characters that are acting 100% human. We all have likes and dislikes but not all force their like or dislikes on others as is being demonstrated here with the Dr. Seuss books that a being forced into oblivion. Shame on them for being so petty.

Joe Biden is out of it. He is incompetent, frail and doesn’t know half the times where he is or what he is saying or doing.
The whole world is probably aware of it and will certainly take advantage of it to benefit their country.
This is very dangerous. He shouldn’t have been elected.
We need Donald Trump back in office so the world will respect us again.

And is this coming from THE Dr. Jill? Of course SHE would have to admit his failings, though not out loud.
You are so correct on every count. If the Australian media sees Joe for his demented and cognitive dissonance why can’t our own State Run Media see it? There is no one so blind as the person that lies to himself.

The sad part is everyone knew this before the election but voted for him anyway just because they didn’t like Trump. Now we have open borders men competing against women and who knows where our foreign policy is but I’m sure it won’t rivil Trump’s.

If a governor can be recalled then a president surely can be recalled. He is elected just like everyone else. Since he hasn’t had an outside evaluation by a non-liberal it’s time that we demand that this evaluation happen. In four years we will not have a country.

DON’T BE BLAMING GOD, for this MESS! You and I were given a CHOICE! One choice was to try and bring Our Country back to the Christian Roots it was founded on, and PROTECT Our Rights given us in the Constitution! The other choice was to continue on a downward path, One Completely against GOD’S Will for Us and This Country and because of the sinfulness of the people GOD cannot BLESS Us, especially since People have kicked HIM out of so many of the places, HE once was held in high esteem and paid reverance to, including tragically some churches! My LORD is a Gentleman, HE doesn’t go where HE’S not wanted, and HE doesn’t Force HIMSELF on Any One! However, there is a MEGA group of people, that are Continually Praying, Repenting for the sinfulness of America and asking GOD to Once Again Come and Heal Our Land! I Believe that HE has heard Our Prayers and Will Answer, when the time is right! HE’S ALWAYS Been A RIGHT on TIME GOD!

Who is really surprised? The Democrate, Pelosi and her dirty dozen knew he couldn’t do it but they also knew that Harris would then get to step in and the dirty dozen would continue to run the country. Biden’s family just want the “fame” and ability to say “We are part of the President’s family” look at us. What they have done is let their love one be branded as the least smart, useless, mistakes driven President the United States has had. Harris got save us , will continue Obama desire to sell America out. But and I hope soon the whole house of cards will fall and they all go out.

Shame on Jill Biden knowing her husband has a problem but, pushed him to run for President . It appears that she would do anything to get into the Whitehouse. She also is a liar so she fits right in with the Washington scum.

** **SNIFF & BLOW GOTTA GO! TIME TO DITCH BIDEN AND HARRIS!** **

WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) have had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose instead to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action?

I strongly urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND a COMPLETE AUDIT AND INVESTIGATION into the 2020 ELECTIONS and for the IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! And they both (BIDEN & HARRIS) have family members putting them both in a CONCLICT of interest position advertising and promoting their businesses and using their VP and POTUS both as an advertising self-interest, self-promoting position and it is ILLEGAL!

People should write these numbers down and use them frequently even if you don’t think your elected officials listen, they are required to note your comments for the permanent record in their caller database for anyone to see.

Xiden said in 8 yrs with Oabysmal that he never went into the living portion of the WH. Pretty much kills the best buds myth.
‘Dr’ Jill and Gropes were having an affair for YEARS while the were still married to other people. St. Jill?
And Joe’s and Jill’s daughter kept a diary as a kid. Released last month, she refers to ‘inappropriate showers’ with Old Gropey. Think Jill didn’t know? HAH!

Even Biden’s own Democrats know that sleepy joe isn’t playing with a full deck. They want to take the nuclear football from him. Also there is a play going on both sides of the aisle to take his bombing authority away after bombing Syria. His wife had to know that the lights were on, but no one was home

UnAmerican Digest is a phoney Putin propaganda machine. It dropped my initial messages so I had to change tactics. Strange how it can’t stand to have its efforts to undermine our democracy exposed. It has several coordinating partners you may have noticed including Renewed Right and even Sports With Balls. The three of them are intent on fomenting violence to disrupt peace and tranquility in the US. Add the NRA with its headlined fundraising letters “Stop Gun Confiscation” when the only proposed restrictions on guns relate to requiring record checks and limits on numbers of purchases. Unfortunately the Supreme Court determination that the need for militias in the late 1780s to fight the British when we had no army justified the “Right to Bear Arms” today when we have an army, navy and air force along with national guards opened the door for the NRA to argue everyone needs a gun.
