“I’m Giving It A Shot” – Biden Reportedly Confirms Run For Presidency

In perhaps the least-surprising political headline of the day, The Hill reports that a senior Democratic lawmaker told them today that former Vice President Joe Biden will run for president in 2020.

Biden has been leading the polls for months…

“I’m giving it a shot,” Biden said matter-of-factly during a phone call with a House Democratic lawmaker within the past week – a conversation the congressman recounted to The Hill  and interpreted as a sure sign that Biden will run in 2020.

However, Biden spokesman Bill Russo refuted the idea that the former vice president is absolutely running:

“He has not made a final decision. No change.”

But, as The Hill notes, at an event with firefighters Tuesday morning, Biden teased a 2020 presidential run as the crowd chanted, “Run, Joe, run!”

“I appreciate the energy you all showed when I got up here,” Biden told an energetic crowd at the International Association of Fire Fighters’ annual conference in Washington, D.C.

Save it a little longer, I may need it in a few weeks. Be careful what you wish for.

His entry into the race has been largely expected. In recent weeks, the 76-year-old Biden (would be the oldest President if elected) has been laying the groundwork for what would be his third and final presidential bid, seeking support from Democratic donors, lawmakers and others in his political circle. Biden, who served as President Obama’s vice president for two terms, also has a team of campaign aides already assembled for the moment he decides to launch a White House bid, which is expected in early April.

We look forward to Trump’s tweeted response (and to see whether the liberal cognoscenti goes full Schultz/Gabbard against Biden or supports the septuagenarian’s run).

  1. “I’m giving it a shot”. Now if that isn’t a full fledged desire to survive the rigors of a Presidential campaign, then what is? Ole Joe won’t get past Round 1, if he runs. He’s never worked for anything in his life. Why start now?

  2. Finally!! Some smarts and common sense! Biden is the countries saviour. He’s got a long haul ahead of him!! Baby dump, I mean, Baby Trump, has screwed everyone around and helped himself into making the USA look laughable. What a puke! Come on BIDEN 2020.

    1. YOU, SIR ARE DELIRIOUS! OLD JOE IS LUCKY IF HE CAN PUT HIS PANTS ON IN THE MORNING WITHOUT HELP. IT’S BEEN OVER FOR OLD JOE FOR 10 YEARS. TRUMP HAS BEEN THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO YOU AND OUR COUNTRY, BUT YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY TOO DENSE TO UNDERSTAND AND APPRECIATE IT. GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR ASS AND WISE UP!
