Two-Faced Joe Rips Ron

Bankrupt of arguments and ideas, the president is now reduced to pathetic name-calling.

Under normal circumstances, we’d feel sorry for the guy.

These, though, aren’t normal circumstances. Frail, feeble, and clearly dementing, the shell of Joe Biden was at Florida Memorial University in Miami Gardens yesterday, there to preach to an ever-shrinking choir.

“Charlie is running against Donald Trump incarnate,” Biden said while stumping for Republican Democrat gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist, who’s poised to get a double-digit curb-stomping at the feet of Governor Ron DeSantis in six days. “This guy doesn’t fit any of the categories I talked about. The way he deals, the way he denies. … I always say democracy is on the ballot. I really mean it.”

Mr. Unity continued: “The rest of the world is looking at us, Charlie. They’re looking at us. It is really important that a state the size of Florida … comes down on the right side of history.”

Ooooh. That’s gonna change a lot of minds.

Biden called the flip-flopping, party-switching Crist a man of “integrity and intelligence,” and perhaps he is when measured against the man paying him the compliment. Mr. 81 Million Votes then urged Floridians to cast their ballots for Crist and his fellow stompee, Congresswoman Val Demings, who next week will join Crist in losing resoundingly in her bid to unseat Republican Senator Marco Rubio.

How times have changed. Wasn’t Florida once the swingiest of swing states? It’s no longer that, and it’s not just our opinion. Here’s the Miami Herald’s editorial board in a scathing op-ed penned just before the president’s visit:

Plagued by anemic fundraising, a loss of registered voters and a popular governor who’s done everything conventional wisdom says a governor in a swing state shouldn’t do, Florida’s Democrats are going into Nov. 8 pessimistic. Biden, who’s all but ignored Florida this election season, is expected to campaign with U.S. Rep. Val Demings and Charlie Crist in Miami Gardens and attend a fundraiser for Crist. It feels a little too late for Democrats to bring out the big guns — if that’s what you call Biden, whose popularity among Floridians is in the tank.

Once considered the nation’s most populous purple state, it’s starting to act more like it’s solid red. For the first time since Jeb Bush was elected governor in 2002, Republicans might carry Miami-Dade County, a stronghold Democrats need to win statewide.

Indeed, how times have changed. Wasn’t it just last month when Biden was singing the praises of the Republican governor in the wake of Hurricane Ian, saying that what he’d done in response was “pretty remarkable”?

Why, yes it was. “I think he’s done a good job,” Biden grudgingly admitted before noting that the two have “different political philosophies.”

And now the state’s young, whip-smart, uber-competent, rock-star governor is the devil “Trump incarnate.” Mmmkay.

Just what is Joe Biden doing in Florida, anyway? As the sitting president and the bully-pulpiteer and the Democrats’ standard-bearer, shouldn’t he be campaigning in an actual swing state — like Arizona or Georgia or Michigan or Pennsylvania or Wisconsin — and for candidates who actually have a chance?

Actually, no. Biden is toxic. He’s persona non grata in states with tight Senate races; because even his fellow Democrats know it. But to keep up appearances, his handlers figured he could be safely dispatched to the once-competitive Sunshine State without risking any real damage to Democrat candidates there. The party can read the electoral writing on the wall, and so can Crist and Demings. As they say, Ya cain’t fall off the floor.

Unfortunately, not even the pomp and pageantry that accompanies the American presidency can get an audience jazzed up about Joe Biden — at least not in Florida. Get a load of his cringeworthy warm-up act, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz:

“Just wanted to make sure you were with, still here.”
