The Democrat in-fighting for 2020 is getting heated and Biden’s hopes just discovered a knife in their back – and the hand on the handle belongs to none other than Barack Hussein Soetero Obama!!!!
From the Hill:
Former President Obama’s talk about how politics need “new blood” is being seen as a blow to Joe Biden, the former vice president that Obama did not back to succeed him in 2016.
Sources close to both men describe Obama and Biden as friends who share an admiration and respect for one another.
But they also acknowledge recent remarks like the one Obama made this week in Hawaii represent a sort of threat to Biden, who has told allies in recent days that he’s likely to enter the 2020 presidential race.
I think this is what Trump picked up on, and tried to aggravate, when he mocked Biden and said Obama got him from the “trash heap.”
More from the Hill:
Obama was speaking broadly about the need for new blood in politics, not specifically the need for new blood in the Democratic Party.
But coming on the heels of Obama’s meeting with former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (Texas), a rising Democratic star who most political observers see as competing with Biden for a slice of the primary electorate, it also sent a signal to the wider political world.
The remark and the burgeoning flirtation between Obama’s political network and O’Rourke also stings Biden given the 2016 campaign, when Obama backed Hillary Clinton and nudged the vice president away from the race, insiders say.
Awesome. I’m sure Obama sees Biden as vulnerable to a challenge from a young upstart, and he wants to tie his legacy to a winner. It’ll be really fun to watch how Democrats keep stabbing each other in the back, and in the front, and in the sides, and in the nether regions, on the way to 2020.
