Aside from the fact that Joe Biden appears to be slipping mentally and at times literally doesn’t know what state he’s in nor what elected position he’s campaigning for, he would probably be as good a president for the Democrats as they’ve ever had.
If you recall the IRS scandal during the Obama administration, Lois Lerner was suspected of discriminating against Republican political campaigns by using the IRS to be sure Republicans got reduced tax-exempt treatment from what Democrats received. There was never any evidence found that Obama was involved in this scandal nor that he instructed Ms. Lerner to act illegally to hurt the Republican campaign effort. Ms. Lerner knew, without being told, how to arrange things to hurt Republicans and give Democrats an advantage, and this left Obama free to look innocent. With Joe Biden in the White House, Democrat operatives, like Lois Lerner, would be free to deny Republicans any political rights at all, and old Joe could nap all day with no suspicion that he was party to any of the usual Democrat crimes.
In the case of the Trump campaign being illegally spied on in the 2016 election, the FBI, the CIA and the State Department, along with various FBI agents who were virulent Trump haters, all knew that what they were doing to defeat the Trump presidency was wrong and blatantly illegal, but as good supporters of the Democrat party, they knew, without needing to be told what to do by the president himself, what was required of them to keep Trump out of the Oval Office. So once again, Obama gets a pass, although he and his party were greatly served by these illegal acts. And also once again, Biden would be presumed to be completely ignorant of any wrong-doing on the part of his subordinates were he the president. It would not be arguable that Biden was ignorant of what was going on in his administration, and his leftist “staff“ could run things from the shadows of the government.
Using the Democrat policy of letting the lower ranking Democrats use their own initiative to serve the upper ranks of the party, Joe Biden would be perfect for the job. Not only can it believably be argued that Biden is so out of touch that he could never have been involved in a scandal, but the truth is that he doesn’t need to be involved because leftists up and down the totem pole know their jobs are to protect the ruling class, so they commit crimes to protect those above them and the crimes the lesser staff commit will never be investigated by the Department of Justice nor any Attorney General.
If elected, Biden would be surrounded by party hacks, probably all selected by the crooked Clintons or the corrupt Obamas, who would make all decisions and appoint all of the staff and cabinet positions, and Joe could just squint, hug the ladies and smell their hair, and look official while others, probably the entire, corrupt, Hillary campaign staff, ran things and made all policy decisions.
If China misbehaved and caused an internal incident during Biden’s administration, or if Venezuela starved all of its population to death under its version of Socialism, the Biden administration could pound the desk and act offended, and then quickly move on to “the people’s business” and bury the whole international incident. On the other hand, if a Republican made a cross statement or if Israel injured a Palestinian terrorist while he was throwing a bomb into an Israeli restaurant, all hell would break loose: the Republican would go to jail and Israel would be denied any self-defense assistance from the United States.
All of this would allow squinty Joe to sleep all day, stammer and stutter a lot if they ever allowed him to appear before a camera or in public at all, but his staff and the press would know, instinctively how to cover for him so his administration could run smoothly and be scandal-free.
