Biden just made another whopper of a flip-flop, this time on CHINA…

Joe Biden is becoming the flip-floppiest candidate to run for president. Today he’s flip-flopping on something he said just over a month ago with respect to China.

Before:

On May 1, Biden said in a speech, “China is going to eat our lunch? Come on, man — They can’t even figure out how to deal with the fact that they have this great division between the China Sea and the mountains in the West. They can’t figure out how they’re going to deal with the corruption that exists within the system. They’re not bad folks, folks … They’re not competition for us.



Today:

We are in a competition with China. We need to get tough with China. They are a serious challenge to us, and in some areas a real threat.

And every single step that Donald Trump is taking is only exacerbating the challenge. While Trump is tweeting, China is making massive investments in technologies of the future. While Trump is name-calling, China is building roads, bridges, and high-speed rail. While Trump is pursuing a damaging and erratic trade war, without any real strategy, China is positioning itself to lead the world in renewable energy. While Trump is attacking our friends, China is pressing its advantage all over the world. So you bet I’m worried about China — if we keep following Trump’s path. But the reason I’m optimistic, and the point I’ve been making for years is—

IF we do what we need to do here at home, IF we stand up for American interests, IF we invest in our people, live our values, and work with our partners — We can out-compete anyone.

So which is it Biden? Is China a threat or aren’t they? Are we in competition with China or are we not?

The first link to what Biden said a month ago came from Axios, not some conservative website. They were the ones pointing this out because it’s a huge contradiction. Read the substance of what he said. In one China can’t find their way out of a hole. In the other they are about to eat our lunch.

But will the media cover this? Or will they just pretend he didn’t say it. You know if Trump said this, it’d be all over the place by now.

  1. The damned, criminal MSM will provide cover for the follicley-challenged, gaffe master. Because, just like Hillary, he’s a moron and doesn’t stand a chance of winning if they don’t protect him – not that he really does have any chance anymore…

  2. Poor Joe, can’t keep his thoughts straight. I wish him the best, but, he’s just not up for the job.

  3. Biden is following the John Kerry model of decisiveness. Announce a decision on an important issue and stick with that decision for……..about a day then change position almost 180-degrees. That worked really effectively for Kerry.

  4. So Joey, is your kid gonna give back all that moollah that the Chicoms gave him for Barack and you selling us out?

  5. Joe Biden isn’t going to last through the primaries. Amazingly, he’s not even as good a campaigner as Hillary.

    Biden is weak and would’t last long in the grinder of the general election.

    1. Both have to be taken out of the public eye for periods of time because the more they talk, the worse it is for them.

  6. Biden is being perfectly consistent, just not about China.

    First, he derides Trump’s actions as ridiculous and over the top because China is no threat at all.

    Then, he attacks Trump’s actions as dangerous, because China is such a horrible threat.

    Both times attacking Trump, but for entirely different — and contradictory — reasons.

    You know, he sounds a lot like … Joe Biden.

  7. Looks like that’s the end of the Biden family fortune……….or did he get permission from the Chi Comms because he’s running for president? He’s going to flip flop himself right over the cliff if he hasn’t already.

  8. Uncle Joe is losing it. Well, he hasn’t had it for a long while, but regarding his candidacy, he’s really losing it. Buh Bye, Uncle Joe!

  9. The wind is blowing from the east today. Tomorrow it may be blowing from the south. Joe has to acclimate according to the direction from which the wind blows. This is why I don’t like most politicians (maybe all?). Just have some principles and stand upon them. Stop the lying, pandering, and theatrics. Would think most can see through these people, but election results don’t reflect that. It is more than obvious.

  10. So go live in china! See how the other poor live comrad! Ever hear of Mao and how he treated the Chinese? When you get there don’t forget to enjoy the wonderful air they have, AND the steps they’re taking to control climate change!

  14. “China is positioning itself to lead the world in renewable energy.”

    Is Biden serious?

    They are the biggest polluters on the globe. Up until at least a few years ago they were building coal fired plants rapidly, and likely still are.

  15. Poor Joe, can’t keep his thoughts straight. I wish him the best, but, he’s just not up for the job.

  16. Ask a Democrat (hell, for that matter, most Republicans too) where they stand on anything, and the first thing they do is lick their finger and hold it up to the wind.

  18. Creepy Joe knows that being tough on China plays well in Iowa… and he’s now playing tough? hahaha, people will not buy it; not even with the MSM helping him out.

  19. So Joey, is your kid gonna give back all that moollah that the Chicoms gave him for Barack and you selling us out?

  20. I can’t wait for the demon-Rat debates. Touchy feely Joe will bring a lot of laughs along with the rest of the America haters running. :chuckle:

    1. The media will be stepping all over themselves to see who can ask the most softball question!

  21. “China is positioning itself to lead the world in renewable energy.” says Biden. Interesting. Cause that doesn’t sound like the cheap, dirty, fossil fuel burning, conniving, cheating China I thought I understood.

  22. “IF we stand up for American interests” yeah Joe that’s politispeak, just like for American interest with the pallets of cash you and your bff Obama gave to Iran.

  23. Uncle Joe is losing it. Well, he hasn’t had it for a long while, but regarding his candidacy, he’s really losing it. Buh Bye, Uncle Joe!

    Sounds an awfully lot like jingoism to me…. not sure how the far-left America-haters that make up his party are going to respond to such a statement.

    Meh, he’ll just take a poll and change his speech if it doesn’t pan out for him.
