Obama: Biden “Doesn’t Have It”

This Day in History | 1942

Legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix is born in Seattle Washington.

Good Morning Middle Americans, 

Ouch. That must have been what Joe Biden’s felt when he read Barack Obama’s latest comments about his presidential candidacy.   In a lengthy piece for Politico Magazine, Obama said he had lost some of his connection to the American public, then pointed to Biden as a guy who “really doesn’t have it.” Double Ouch. Biden had said previously that he asked Obama not to endorse him. We didn’t believe that b.s. then. And we believe it even less now. If there were any doubt it should be painfully obvious by now that Barak Obama doesn’t want Joe Biden to be president. The only person he wants to be president less than Biden, is Donald Trump. 

Also today we have a story about Bill O’Reilly’s interview with President Trump. O’Reilly tried to pin down the president and get him to answer some tough questions about Rudy Giuliani. Trump’s answers should probably made Giuliani feel a little uncomfortable. 

Finally, President Trump hosted Conan the hero dog from the Baghdadi raid but the White House had a serious problem identifying the sex of the dog. We now know the answer. 

Read all about it below.

Waiting for Obama

(Politico) – The Democratic establishment is counting on him to stop Trump and, perhaps, stave off Bernie as well. But can his cerebral politics still galvanize voters in an age of extremes?

Today, almost every Democratic presidential campaign starts with what one close adviser to Barack Obama calls “The Pilgrimage”: the journey to the West End to meet the former president.

The West End of Washington, D.C., sandwiched between the better-known districts of Georgetown and Dupont Circle, is known as a neighborhood that people travel through, not to. For elite Democrats, that changed four years ago when Obama set up his personal office here. You wouldn’t know from outside that one of its bland concrete and glass building houses the man whom polls rank as the most popular Democrat in America, and who, according to one global survey, is the second-most admired man in the world.

Occasionally, he can be cutting. With one candidate, he pointed out that during his own 2008 campaign, he had an intimate bond with the electorate, especially in Iowa, that he no longer has. Then he added, “And you know who really doesn’t have it? Joe Biden.”

Trump Denies Sending Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine for Biden Probe

(Bloomberg) – Donald Trump denied directing Rudy Giuliani to go to Ukraine to look for dirt on his political rivals, in an interview with former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly.

“No, I didn’t direct him, but he is a warrior, he is a warrior,” Trump told O’Reilly in an interview streamed on the internet on Tuesday.

Giuliani has said publicly that he conducted an investigation “concerning 2016 Ukrainian collusion and corruption” on Trump’s behalf.

Asked by O’Reilly what Giuliani was doing in Ukraine, Trump said “you have to ask that to Rudy.”

“Rudy has other clients, other than me,” the president added. “He’s done a lot of work in Ukraine over the years.”

Conan the Hero Dog, Good Boy or Good Girl?

(Stars and Stripes) – Conan, the warrior dog with the Army’s elite Delta Force who was injured in the raid on ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi last month, has been identified as male after a whirlwind of confusion in Washington.

In October, when Trump tweeted a photo of Conan after the raid, the White House wouldn’t confirm gender. The question hit critical mass after White House officials gave conflicting information to the press Monday when President Donald Trump awarded the pooch a medal and plaque in a surprise Rose Garden ceremony.

The president used male pronouns to refer to the dog, but White House officials later said Conan is female.
