If you are surprised by this comment from Joe Biden then you haven’t been watching him in debates…..
Joe Biden isn’t attacking much of anyone….
I alluded to this in an earlier debate post…
He has said over and OVER that he’s running against Donald Trump….
He has nothing against those running against him for the nomination…
If you stop and watch Biden?
He isn’t all excited….
He isn’t chomping at bit….
He’s pacing himself ….
Focused on Trump….
In the debates he does NOT trash others…
He seems genuinely pained when others go after him….
THAT is at their own risk in post debates polling numbers…
While he faces headwinds from the media, Republicans and other Democrats sometimes?
He just keeps heading into that wind….
Making adjustments…But aiming for a chance to slug it out with Donald Trump , who fears Biden the most…
Joe Biden said Saturday he is undeterred by the ascendancy of Democratic rival Elizabeth Warren, noting that some of his supporters are already treating the primary campaign as a general election contest between him and President Donald Trump.
“She doesn’t affect my strategy, period,” the former vice president said in an interview with The Associated Press before a town hall meeting in South Carolina, home to the South’s first primary next year. “And I’m not being facetious. I think she’s a fine person, a good candidate, but I didn’t get involved in deciding to run because of polling or a particular strategy.”
He also acknowledged that outside groups are considering running ads to support him, a move that comes amid concerns within his campaign that his fundraising efforts have lagged.
“There’s two things we know for certain: one, (Russian President) Vladimir Putin doesn’t want me to be president, according to Facebook taking down the Russian ads going after me. And two, surely Trump doesn’t want to face me,” Biden said. “What I’m told is, there are people out there who want to take these ads on, take him on now, because it’s a general election, me versus Trump, in their minds right now. But I’ve had no conversations with them.”
Biden’s standing in early-voting states such as Iowa and New Hampshire has been eroded somewhat by the rise of Massachusetts Sen. Warren and other challengers in the 2020 primary. Still, he finds himself in a strong position in South Carolina, where his support among the critical voting bloc of black voters could form the bulwark for his candidacy….
