Oh No Joe! Democratic Front Runner Biden Considers One Term Pledge?

Oh No Joe! Democratic Front Runner Biden Considers One Term Pledge?

It is a strategy that is risky at best and as one story reported, it didn’t serve the last candidate well who attempted to employ those tactics. Is this an attempt by the very wealthy “every man’s” average Joe to shake things up or is there a new sense of urgency, maybe as a result of an even richer candidate who has made a late entry into the race or because of a sputtering campaign?

In any event, as our story reported, the tactic Joe Biden is kicking around and considering is the idea of running as a one-term President. If he were to follow through with this campaign platform change, according to the report, then front running candidate Joe Biden would pledge to run for President under the stipulation of promising only to serve one term. Does that sound at all familiar?

Many of us may not be just quite old enough to remember, and many of us do, but this was a tactic once employed 24 years ago by then Presidential candidate Bob Dole. Yeah, that didn’t work at as planned and to say it is a risky strategy, is to say it gently. According to the story, however, there is some method behind the madness.

The story explained it this way: “The idea, according to a number of aides close to Biden, is for Old Joe to act as a placeholder president until the next generation of Democrat leaders (re: socialist gun-grabbers) can get their act together.”

Then the story went on to insightfully say that “This move will obviously put an enormous focus on Biden’s choice for vice president, which is the campaign’s way of saying that if you don’t like the decrepit white guy who signals a return to the past and still want to rid the country of Trump, you will also be voting for a shiny and new future president — who will probably be a woman, a minority, or both.”

Not only would this mean that Biden would simply look for the candidate with the largest voter pool to grab as his running mate, but it would also require having that type of candidate to choose from. That itself is only one of the flaws in this previously-failed campaign tactic. In addition to the much talked about lack of depth in the Democrats candidate pool, there simply isn’t a candidate that qualifies. Even the front-running Biden (at least for the time being) is commonly reported polling with numbers in the mid-twenties.

It also opens up the huge gamble of asking voters to vote for a candidate not in 2020 but in 2024, now. And that is providing that Biden would win the election and that his VP would be able to win in the following election year. Yeah, as Bob Dole discovered, it is a big and costly move.

Our story also pointed out one seriously detrimental flaw in this campaign strategy, saying “Conceding, even before you’ve won the primary, that you are too old to be president, especially when you are Joe Biden, a man who truly is too old to be president, has never succeeded in the past and demoralizes voters even before the general election has begun.”

Perhaps if his age hasn’t been a question before, maybe if his mental acumen hasn’t previously been brought into question? How would voters perceive this ‘one term’ pledge? That is an awful lot of unanswered questions and although Biden is full of surprises, this move would surprise more than a few folks.

This isn’t likely to happen as our story reported, citing a Biden advisor who said, “he’s going into this thinking, ‘I want to find a running mate I can turn things over to after four years but if that’s not possible or doesn’t happen then I’ll run for re-election.’ But he’s not going to publicly make a one-term pledge.”

So there it is, it could happen, and he is looking at this as a possible platform – but it isn’t going to happen. Right? It does seem to be a strange idea to be tossing around though, doesn’t it? Unless this is the beginning of panic, of concession, the last ditch-hope effort to save his campaign?

One-term Joe? That would be crazy, right?

  1. NOT ACCEPTABLE! DO NOT FALL FOR THIS CRAP! IT IS A PLOY!

    Joe Biden means another 4 years of Obama! Obama is a corrupt politician that protects all Islam and Socialism over the American people. He was a traitor with his Iran deal. He protects drug dealers; pedophiles and rapists. He protects illegals entering the country. Why because he wants to bring America to moral and financial ruin! His goal is to destroy the middle class with high unemployment and massive social programs that will bankrupt the country.

    Why you may ask? Because this is how dictatorships work. This is how they enslave the people. This is how they stay in power.

    We Canadians have lived under the yoke of Socialism far too long. Justin is back in power. He said that if he won he would turn over leadership to someone else. He won a minority government and has not turned leadership over to anyone else. In fact he behaves like he is above the law and protects the Islamists infiltrating our country. He is pure evil.

    DO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN TO AMERICA. IT WILL BE THE LAST CHRISTIAN REFUGE CIVILIZED LAW ABIDING PEOPLE WILL HAVE LEFT.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP! GOD SAVE OUR QUEEN ELIZABETH II.

    DOWN WITH VILE ISLAMIC LOVING SOCIALISM!!!!!

  2. To all the young New Democrat voters….please, please, research the Socialist government and their policies before you vote. This is why they are trying so hard to get Trump out of office….to turn our free America into a Socialist country. this would mean an end to our freedom, our private ownership of homes, vehicles, etc, They lure you in with promises of everything free….education, medical, homes , etc…..you will own nothing!!!? It will all belong to the government! The taxes will be so high, your paycheck will be barely enough to live on….so you can help support those who do not work…..and all the free stuff! Nothing is ever free….someone is always paying for it!

  3. How about a NO TERM PRESIDENT!! Oh poor Crazy Perverted Uncle Joe still doesn’t get it……..No way no how does he have a shot in the world of beating Our President! He couldn’t keep up with him if he used somebody else’s mind! Go home Joe take care of your Crazy son before he has anymore children he can deny!

  4. One of the reasons Biden was chosen as Obutthead’s running mate, was his pledge to not run for the office after O’s administration was finished. So we can see that Quid Pro Quo Joe has already broken that pledge. Seriously though, the guy is exhibiting several classic onset signs of Dementia, and that’s a huge factor against him. Same with Sanders heart condition. People who will vote Left regardless of whom is the nominee, need to seriously question their physical health and hope they pick a running mate, because there’s a very high possibility and probability that their VP will have to take over. Considering the names Joe has tossed out as potentials, that’s a scary damn thought all on its own.

  5. Joe Biden is a criminal. We seen it on air when he said fire the prosecutor or you won’t get the money. How do you crooked democRATS ignore this on camera?? He should be in jail. You are such lying people not to accept this as a crime. It isa big crime.
