Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Tue Aug 20, 2019, 09:57 PM

 

Biden is needed for the "moment we are in," a perilous and complex time when experts see us as

closer to a first nuclear war then ever before.

World leaders tell Biden: We need you
The former vice president would bring deep relationships and heavyweight credentials to a 2020 Democratic field lacking in national security experience.
By DANIEL LIPPMAN 03/20/2019 05:04 AM EDT

When Joe Biden attended the annual Munich Security Conference last month, the wonky foreign policy confab promised an escape from the nonstop speculation back home about the former vice president’s political plans.

Instead, Biden’s 2020 intentions were the talk of the conference.

When Armenian President Armen Sarkissian ran into him in a hallway, a TV camera captured him asking Biden: “Are you going to run?” (Biden whispered an inaudible answer.)

And in several conversations with European leaders in Munich, Biden heard a repeated refrain, according to a conference attendee familiar with the conversations: The world needs you.

———————————————————————

They got their wish. You go, Joe!

3. The World Leaders have been

 

right in the thick of things with trump stomping around on everybody but putin, kim, and the Saudi Arabian ruler.

And, they have the experience of when President Obama and Biden were in power.. I imagine they know what they're talking about.

Mahalo, emmaverybo!

13. Yes, the world leaders respected and trusted President Obama and VP Biden. Wish for a Biden

 

Presidency and a dream negotiator/diplomat like John Kerry to bring Iran back to the table. Certainly think Biden wouldn’t be coddling and romancing Putin, Kim, and the Saudi sickoes.

Would be good if the media would feature more of Hillary’s thoughts on the subject.

7. I am sure that our allies are desperate

 

for a return to good relations and sanity in the WH. We have many admirable and capable candidates running, but none have the foreign policy expertise of Biden.

8. Agree! His foreign policy experience is one of my biggest draws. We need our allies, they need

 

Reassurance. They are only asking one candidate to run for a reason

9. Joe Biden can rebuild our international alliances; he remembers how our government works, and can

 

help put it back together.

My one reservation: Please, Joe, don't make the mistake of thinking you can leave the traitors and fascist moles in place!

10. Regardless if its Biden or some other Democrat that wins the one that does needs to have the DOJ

 

appoint a special investigator to investigate everything Trump and those in his administration have done because if they let them walk it will only encourage more bad behavior in the future.

12. Kick!

 



Biden's foreign policy chops are indisputable. He is the only candidate with hands-on foreign policy experience and years of geopolitical knowledge. The international community knows that, too.

People should review Biden's foreign policy speech delivered in NYC last month. It's one of Biden's best and he hammers Trump for the petulant jackass he is thinking foreign policy can be delivered through 'twitter tantrums.'

We and the world need a seasoned hand to put the pieces back together. Because the times we are a'living are perilous.

16. So well said. Agree 100 percent. That speech was strong. Showed how concerned Joe Biden is

 

about America and the world.
