Joe Biden remarks are growing ever more…uh, dementia-like… as he slides from 1st place in the polls to around 4th or 5th. The Latest polls not been kind to the former Vice President. And there’s a good reason. He seems to be bent on killing his own campaign.
The Eric Swalwell Method of killing his campaign
Remember when Eric Swalwell threatened to nuke gun owners? The Joe Biden remarks were close to that when he told a New Hampshire audience that if gun owners take on the government, they’re going to need an F-15 with Hellfire missiles.
Joke or not, gun owners were not thrilled. Cam Edwards at Bearing Arms called it a “tactical misfire.” Typical Joe Biden remarks always are.
He referenced a Thomas Jefferson quote on refreshing the Tree of Liberty by saying that we as gun owners would need an F-15 with Hellfire missiles because our “AK-47s” wouldn’t help us.
Biden: "Those who say 'the tree of liberty is watered with the blood of patriots' — a great line, well, guess what: The fact is, if you’re going to take on the government you need an F-15 with Hellfire Missiles. There is no way an AK-47 is going to take care of you." pic.twitter.com/npmW40DHS2

Note: Joe Biden can’t even remember what kind of shotgun he owns. And we seriously doubt he even knows the difference between an AR-15 and an AK-47. But just to set the record straight, yes an F-15 can carry AGM-114 Hellfire missiles. Even vaguely suggesting they be used against Americans- particularly gun owners – is outrageous. Eric Swalwell found that out with his nuke reference. Biden went down that hole. Good luck getting out.
Joe Biden remarks Take 2 in New Hampshire
The New York Post reported:
A young woman asked a simple question: “How do you explain the performance in Iowa and why should voters believe that you can win the national election?”
Biden: “Iowa’s a caucus. Have you ever been to a caucus?”
When she stated she had, he responded with, “No, you haven’t. You’re a lying dog-faced pony soldier.”
He also told her that the Iowa caucus was not a good measure of how a candidate will perform in other races. Though the crowd laughed, the woman was confused, because she thought she asked a legitimate question – and she did.
The media excused his display of goofball politics by calling it a “joke.” There was laughter after, but let’s call it for what it was: bizarre. The Biden campaign said that he has used the remark before- it’s a quote from a John Wayne movie (she may not be old enough to ever have seen a John Wayne movie- just sayin’). But the woman he spoke to at the event was a little unhinged by his response.
“I read an article that he said [Iowa] was a punch to the gut, and I’m not one to just push on wounds. I’m not trying to humiliate anyone…He wasn’t sitting in at the Senate trials for impeachment, so he had Iowa to himself. And then you’ve been a politician for like decades — how are you not way above all the other candidates?” Madison Moore, 21, to the Washington Post.
So there you have it. The Joe Biden remarks that will continue to sink his bid for the Presidency.
