Trump: Obama took Biden ‘out of the garbage heap.’ ‘I’d love to have it be Biden’ in 2020
Over the years, I’ve written quite a bit about Joe Biden. Back when the former VP was doing the will he/won’t he dance, I warned: “underestimate Joe Biden at your own peril.”  Biden has a knack for presenting himself as a sort of ‘average blue-collar fella’ who understands your issues and isn’t too left-wing.  It’s a lie, but he does a good job of playing the part.  He carries a limited amount of baggage, he’s congenial, and his personal history is both compelling and can generate a certain amount of sympathy.


Obama years and the “creepy Uncle Joe”

Yes, the disaster of the Obama years and the “creepy Uncle Joe” thing are substantial negatives, but I still think any Republican should view Biden as a legitimate threat.

Donald Trump disagrees – or at least that’s the attitude he’s decided to project. According to the President, Biden is a “dream” opponent.

To be clear; I’m not saying Biden would beat Trump.

I’m only saying that Trump and the GOP should be careful what they wish for.  Just as every leftist begged for a Trump candidacy because they thought he was a joke who was doomed to failure, Conservatives seem to think Biden is a guy who will be quickly and easily steamrolled.  I don’t think that’s the case.

Biden is a legitimate rust-belting, coal-mining, populist threat. Trump (and, yes, he probably already knows this) needs to take him seriously.
