Joe Biden might be the only one who doesn't understand what just happened here. He is now the victim of the drive-by media and the choreographed strike on his character by Democratic operatives from which there is no return.

He almost reminds me of that sheriff Heselrig in Braveheart, when William Wallace enacted the vengeance for his wife's slaughter, he seemed to be the last one there that realized what had just been done to him.

A strength of President Obama has always been articulation. He truly was one of the better communicators to hold the Oval Office. Yesterday, without mentioning Biden or giving anyone an opportunity to accuse him of defending him, he stated concerns that the left wing of the Democratic Party is, "having a ‘circular firing squad,’ where you start shooting at your allies because one of them is straying from purity on the issues.”

Biden is not recognizing what he is looking at here. The "cool kids" in his party are neither impressed with his credentials nor his appeal to moderate Democrats and the unenrolled who will be needed in a general election.

The compilations of his seemingly creepy ambushes of women from behind or his initiating contact that becomes obviously uncomfortable for the women, as judged by their expressions, is convincing.

One could make the argument that he does this at points where it would be too intimidating to object.

Imagine you are a woman in this scenario: the Vice President of the United States is at a black tie event and is meeting you for the very first time. He puts both of his hands on your shoulders or around your delicate waist and pulls you toward him while his mouth is two inches from your ear (or closer), and whatever he is saying or whatever his intentions are, it lasts for many seconds.

I can honestly say, if he did that to my wife or one of my daughters, he's get a good jolting shove just below his collar bone by me and he'd be reeling off balance for a good five to eight feet backwards.

Just so Democrats understand my position on this, would you let Trump do this to the women you care about?

He's old. So is his act. He is no longer viewed as the wise, tough and alert Democratic fighter.

His strength was supposed to be foreign policy. That is why President Obama brought him in as Vice President for the campaign. His strength was to make up for the younger Senator's weakness. However, in retrospect, we see so many fires that the Obama Administration set for nothing but poor decisions.

Embracing the "Arab Spring" caused and continues to cause immense pain and suffering for almost the entire North African Coast, Tunisia and east of it.

The ill-advised pulling out American forces in Iraq, which allowed for the rise of the incredibly barbaric ISIS. Tens of thousands died violently as a result.

Pallets of cash to Iran, which Secretary of State John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) readily admitted would certainly go towards terrorist activity to some degree.

President Trump shared a doctored video poking fun at Biden's space invading issues, which was met with a self-pitying statement from Biden.

"I see that you are on the job and presidential as always," Biden retorted.

Several months ago, the former VP had so much respect for the office of the presidency, that he publicly stated that he would like to take Trump out through the back door of a gym and pummel him. That's presidential though.

The New Democrats have begun what I promised would be their plan. They are narrowing the field with a select few of aggressive progressive types they in mind to represent the Democratic Party in 2020, and someone needs to tell Joe Biden, he ain't on that list.
