I'm not sure Biden could complete the campaign without a major screw-up anyway, but it's outrageous for him to have to bite it over a total lie. Not that he's the only politician to have been mudded out of a campaign. But I wouldn't start supporting him as a first choice just because of the injustice of Trump's attack, nor would I stop. However, a lot of people are going to see him as damaged, even if they don't believe the lies - they'll just be afraid he wouldn't be able to win anymore. End result is the same either way - Trump gets him out of the campaign and moves on to spread lies about Warren or whoever.
Yeah, the lying and the stupid are really starting to gain steam. They should get Joe Isuzu to help them out.
"but it's outrageous for him (Joe) to have to bite it over a total lie."
How so different than any other repug campaign?
Nixon lied and extended the Vietnam war while campaigning as a private citizen
Reagan ran (or his handlers did) one scam after another from voodoo economics to training terrorists in Afghanistan and Central America, but most significant was his campaign working a deal with terrorists to continue to hold the hostages until the inauguration.
Tax liar Romney and welfare boy Paul based their entire economic platform on a completely false study.
trump's entire campaign was lies, filled with Kenyan born presidents, underground pedophile pizza parlors, murders, lies about his taxes and lies about the illegal immigrant wife he owns and he even has a fake news outlet to push his lies.
It goes on and on. They have nothing of substance to stand on, so they make up fairy tales about how we can't impose taxes on the benevolence of our rich and talented rulers.
Socialism in all forms is bad.
Jobs programs are socialism and don't ever work.
FDR had nothing to do with leading the country out of the Depression, it was all ww2.
They run away so quickly when you ask them to consider that the jobs to create the expendable war materials were government jobs, that you don't even get the chance to ask them to imagine if all those government war jobs had been jobs for creating lasting infrastructure.
I've never run into any repug idea that made any sense in the long run, it's all focused on getting their shallow minded followers to see the short term benefit.
Cut taxes, spend and borrow, throw in a distracting bright and shiny war along with a couple of hot button issues like abortion (which they have no intention of imposing on themselves) and you have the modern republican party.
Then there are all the other lies about Acorn, the post office, traitor France and the Iraq invasion, that guy who makes the fake videos - James something, it's all lies.
