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.

“In my long service on the Foreign Relations Committee, I studied the Chinese. We could learn from them. They have some good ideas…a single progressive party, no silly Electoral College…good ideas. And dynasties. The Chinese have always had dynasties, didya know that? My son and I would like to be the first Chinese dynasty to rule America, man. And eunuchs. Lots of eunuchs in Chinese history. That’s why I’m all in favor of transgender rights.”

“Don’t get me wrong, man. I want good relations with China. We need to show our friendship and good faith. That’s why I’m in favor of how one of our great Democrat Senators kept a Chinese spy on her staff for years. That’s the kind of innovation we need, not throwing tariffs and insults at them.”

“While Trump destroys the Reproductive Rights of Women, the Chinese…the Chinese…uh, they’re way ahead of us in controlling population to Fight Climate Change and Save the Planet. We need to compete! Free abortions for all!”

“Our cities are threatened with flooding by rising sea levels due to Climate Change, and Trump is doing nothing, while the Chinese inspire the world by creating new land in the South China Sea. That’s a Big F’ing Deal, man!”

I guess China was late on their payments to his son, who they made very rich.

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.

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…

“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.

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

“China is leading in organ transplant technology. China is showing the world how to deal with Muslims…” (staffer: No no Joe, that stuff was supposed to be edited out.)

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.

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.

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.

“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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
