Looks like Donna Brazile wasn’t the only one unhappy with Democrats. It turns out the bromance between Joe Biden and Barack Obama was not quite as close as people portrayed. In Biden’s new book, he basically says they were often at each other’s throats. “There were times when we were unhappy with each other,” he writes in Promise Me, Dad, out November 14. A book I will never buy and never read. EVER.
Biden does however say that the two could fight it out instead of talking behind each other’s backs or leaking stories to news outlets. That I believe, but I bet the cat fights were epic. “But when he was upset with me I heard about it in private, not on the nightly news,” Biden says. “At the end of the day I was appreciative that he was straight with me. And the few times I was really upset with him, I was straightforward and direct about my anger. I made no bones about it.”
101 Things All Young Adults Should Know
by Sir John Hawkins
John Hawkins’s book 101 Things All Young Adults Should Know is filled with lessons that newly minted adults need in order to get the most out of life. Gleaned from a lifetime of trial, error, and writing it down, Hawkins provides advice everyone can benefit from in short, digestible chapters.
During the last election, Biden was 74 and Obama was 56. Biden says that Obama didn’t have his back. Well, we all knew that when suddenly Biden withdrew his bid to run against Hillary in the primary. Obama backed Hillary Clinton and basically ordered Biden to step back. Which was stupid, because Biden had the backing of the unions and at least stood a chance of winning. Hillary Clinton didn’t. She was the candidate because she bailed out the Democrats who were in horrendous debt.
“In January 2015 the President was convinced I could not beat Hillary, and he worried that a long primary fight would split the party and leave the Democratic nominee vulnerable in the general election,” Biden writes. Surely, Biden knows that is a lie, that it was financial extortion that caused all of that. In further discussions, Biden claims that he felt unable to “fully confide” in his longtime friend. And again, he blames his grief for his son Beau’s cancer death that same year for not running. I just flat out don’t believe that and never have.
Many people believe that Biden will run for the presidency in 2020. He’ll be 78… I’m not buying it. He’s just too long in the tooth. Biden will never forgive Obama for stealing his chance at the Oval Office. What I find interesting is all these Democrat books coming out turning on each other. They are every bit as nasty as we imagined them to be.
