The irrepressible snarkmeister, Tbogg, noticed an op-ed
on MSNBC that advocated Joe Biden as the savior of the Democratic Party.The Case for Joe Biden
is actually a Newsweek
"web exclusive" by Ron Goldstein, who is identified as "a veteran of 10 Democratic presidential campaigns dating back to 1976" and "president of Free Media Inc in New York". [Not to be picky but 10 campaigns in 7 campaign cycles is a bit odd.]
Anyway, Ron thinks: "Biden's tough, compassionate, experienced, left-of-center political profile may be just the answer for the Democrats and the country."
Ron, has anyone explained the recent bankruptcy bill that Joe backed to you? This is the "conservative" attempt to see if we can recreate the 19th
century London of Charles Dickens in the US, complete with poor houses and debtors' prisons. Why Democrats would be willing to back a man who has failed them on such an important issue is beyond my understanding, as is the designation as "left-of-center". Is Ghengis Khan now the center? Were you with any of the winners in your 10 campaigns, like Jimmy Carter or Bill Clinton?
