Even Obama Admits It Was a 'Bad' Debate for Joe Biden, Gets Brutally Ratioed

Even former President Barack Obama had to admit that the Thursday night disaster that was Joe Biden’s debate performance was “bad.” That has to be the understatement of the year.

Nevertheless, because he’s Barack Obama, he urged supporters to ignore all that and vote for Old Joe anyway. His Friday tweet reminds me of a Shakespeare quote

It is a tale 

Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,

Signifying nothing.

 It was classic Obama: 

Between someone who tells the truth; who knows right from wrong and will give it to the American people straight — and someone who lies through his teeth for his own benefit. Last night didn’t change that, and it’s why so much is at stake in November. http://joebiden.com

“But this election is still a choice between someone who has fought for ordinary folks his entire life and someone who only cares about himself,” the 44th president waxed poetically. But does he even believe that utter nonsense? Joe’s policies have hurt ”ordinary folks” more than anyone with his rampant inflation, divisive gender wars, and porous border. Does he care about Laken Riley, Jocelyn Nungaray, or any of the other victims murdered and/or raped by illegal aliens who have slipped into our country under his watch? Does he care about the nation's young people, many of whom at this point have no realistic chance of buying a home in the future? It certainly does not appear that way.

Biden's meandering, listless appearance will go down in the books as perhaps the worst debate performance in history.

Meanwhile, how does one take this line seriously? “Between someone who tells the truth; who knows right from wrong and will give it to the American people straight.” Biden told the nation in a 2020 presidential debate that Hunter’s laptop was Russian disinformation—a lie—and on Thursday, he said no troops had been killed in action since he took office. Did he forget the catastrophic Afghanistan withdrawal that he oversaw, where 13 U.S. servicemembers perished?

Not surprisingly, many on social media took the former president to task—in some cases hysterically:

If Obama hadn’t picked Biden for his VP back in 2008, twice-failed presidential candidate Joe would have probably faded into obscurity. He wouldn’t be overseeing the decline of our country, and he’d be sleeping on the beach somewhere in Delaware. (Well, more than he already is, anyway.)

Thanks, Barry.
