I actually agree with Joe Scarborough on Biden strategy. [View all]

This morning, Morning Joe devoted a segment to Biden’s gaffes and just how important and non important they are.
Scarborough (who wants Biden to be President) blamed Biden’s staff for putting him in awkward situations. He said that Biden just needs to stick to a TelePrompTer script at rallies and not go off script where he has been prone to mix up his stories or misspeak.
This makes sense to me.
I hope that Biden’s staff was watching.

You may say that I don’t want Biden to win because I declared Warren as my favorite.
I actually would be very comfortable with Biden as President.
I just prefer a woman with either Warren or Harris getting our nomination.
However, if we get into the primaries in early 2020 and a lot of the reputable polling (both nationally and in key battleground states) continue to show Biden beating Trump easily whereas those same polls showing a close race with Trump against other Dems, then I will switch to Biden.
Because we simply can’t risk losing in November 2020.

So, please Biden’s staff, do everything you can to protect and help your nominee.
Don’t give the gop any more ammunition to tear him down.
The ONLY way Trump beats him is if they can paint Biden as mentally deficient even more so than Trump is.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
