For reasons to himself best known


He that complies against his will,
Is of his own opinion still; 
Which he may adhere to, yet disown, 
For reasons to himself best known:

Samuel Butler - Hudibras (1684)

Although in Biden's case I suspect he has no idea why he said what he said and is quite ready to disagree with himself as often as seems necessary.

Politicians in search of votes are normally keen to argue black is white, but he seems to have lost his way a bit here.

Doonhamer said...

Well, he has given the other demographics something to think about.

A K Haart said...

Sam - lost his way rather badly too, although he seems to have gone walkabout some time ago.

Doonhamer - he certainly has and it won't be forgotten.

Ed P said...

How many more "mis-speaks" and mistakes will the Demon Party tolerate with Sleepy, senile Joe?

And now the truth is emerging re the quid pro quo in Ukraine, along with the Hunter Biden corruption, he's no longer anyone's preferred candidate.

Then there's the Flynn affair, plus Schiff's inventions, which have Biden's & Omaba's involvement documented.

So I think they'll drop him at their conference in favour of Cuomo.

Ed - yes they need to drop him to stand a chance. Always an odd choice I thought - too old and too flaky.
