Well, any way you look at it, we're talking about Joe Biden as opposed to learning about one of the less well known candidates. The 2020 election is going according to the script. I don't want to hear any whining when Trump wins a second term.

General note:  Instead of thinking of the metoo movement as out of control, did you ever stop to think that maybe sexual assault and harassment on many different levels has ALWAYS been out of control and we are finally seeing these people outed?  Cause really that is what is happening.  I think that almost every single one of these men is guilty.

I'm not looking to give him a pass, and that aspect of him often seemed creepy to me, but I doubt there are any videos of him "feeling up" a woman.  The term has a specific meaning (or at least used to).

I say this as a life-long liberal and feminist: libs have become the puritans they so often rail against.

If we make everyone afraid to touch each other we will further erode the best things about what make us human.

MeToo is going to end up a disaster if it doesn't change tactics - belittling, shaming and attacking people is usually the least effective way to get them to change their behavior. 

 
I have rarely if ever seen them miss.  I am hardly politically correct, but in almost all of the public cases the men have been up to some shady stuff.  Like I have said before whether it is Kavanaugh, Biden or Trump I am almost always prone to believe the women for it is much rarer for them to be out and out lying over something like this.

"Feeling up" has an entirely different meaning than just unwanted/unwelcome/creepy touching/groping of arms, shoulders, back, etc.  It's actually what our current president bragged about doing on the Access Hollywood tape.

I thought he handled the interview very well. The questions were baiting and ridiculous. Obama is not a Socialist nor a Marxist and the questions have nothing to do with critical issues faced by the voting public.

I thought Biden was quite soft-spoken in his surprise at what the interviewer was setting up. Hard to see that as anger. Biden's not just another talking head on Fox or MSNBC, he's a senior US senator and has the right to react when somebody tries to set him up in such an obvious and partisan way.

Rose said it better than I can.

Those were not tough questions, those were ridiculous accusations that only fuel the distortion and smearing. 

This would be a tough question: "How will you keep Social Security solvent?" 

This is a stupid question: "Won't an Obama administration bring Marxism to the White House?" 

The person asking the questions was giving the ridiculous smears the same import that she should have given to genuine issues. She was embarrassing. Her goal was to perpetuate the distortion, not enlighten.  Biden gave an excellent answer to the "Spread the Wealth" question (letting the Middle class keep more of their income is NOT spreading the wealth.  Having the very wealthy pay a larger portion into the system (like they used to do) is appropriate.  Duh!) 

siderant... So many McCain supporters don't realize what they're cheering him on to do... he will continue making life too hard for the middle class so that the upper class can continue their lifestyle of excess and material gluttony.  Does anyone believe, after what we've seen since the start of these stupid Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, that ANY wealthy person is putting their money into JOBS?!?  Growing American businesses??  nope.  Trickle down economics has proven itself a failure.
/siderant

I agree that Biden is a lousy speaker.  It's the biggest reason he didn't get farther in the primary.  He was in hostile territory in this interview.  It was gracious of him to agree to meet with the news organization.  He wasn't very gracious in his response, but I don't see how anyone could be.  But he did state his case well, and didn't lose his cool.
 

Perfect. And, hey, Rose!
