Joe Biden and Rudy Giuliani

with 73 comments

In the summer of 2007, Rudy Giuliani was well out in front of all other candidates running in the Republican primaries, and he stayed there all the way until the beginning of December when his poll numbers began to sink. Then came his disastrous early-January showings in Iowa and New Hampshire, where the conventional wisdom says that his liberal views on abortion were at odds with what conservative primary voters wanted. But if you ask me, I think he didn’t do especially well in the debates.

John McCain, who perhaps won because he was the most famous candidate running against Rudy who said the correct conservative things about abortion, lost big-time against Obama.

Could Joe Biden be the Rudy Giuliani of this election cycle? Like Giuliani, he’s the most centrist candidate in a party that seems to want hardcore leftism. Like Giuliani he does poorly in debates. Actually, a lot worse than Giuliani. Like Giuliani, Biden does especially poorly in Iowa, but is banking on a big showing in South Carolina (and Giuliani was banking on a big showing in Florida, which never happened).

Also, and I don’t throw this accusation around lightly, but I really do think that Biden is in the early stages of some sort of dementia and maybe just five more months is enough time for it to become more noticeable.

In 1992, when Barry Goldwater was 83, I saw him give a talk at my law school, and my reaction was that Goldwater was going senile. Even though I nevertheless enjoyed hearing from him, it was obvious that the man who ran for President many years before was no longer the same person. And I was right. Approximately five years later, in September 1997, it was officially reported that Barry Goldwater “is suffering from the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease.” But notice that there were five years between it being noticeable to me, someone who didn’t know him and never even heard him speak before, that there was something wrong, and the official public acknowledgement. And this isn’t just Monday morning quarterbacking. I remember telling several people afterwards that I thought Goldwater was going senile, and that I thought it was very sad.

  1. Why the sudden turn against Biden’s chances?

    For me, this new video shows that Biden has done too much to alienate the NRA. The NRA holds a lot of sway with swing state prole whites, who Biden would have been positioned to steal from Trump.

    I think this is generation gap related. Joe Biden of the silent generation is a double barreled shotgun man, and wants to take away even remotely modern boomer favorite guns like the Springfield M1A with wood furniture and a 20 round magazine.

    Also, I’ve sensed that some of the Sanders supporters from the last cycle think he’s getting too woke. Thoughts on this?

    • Hey, I’m a big fan of double barreled shotguns. I currently have one (actually, an over/under, same concept) and like it a lot. What’s more, you can buy rifled adapter tubes that fit inside the barrels (www.gunadpaters.com) and use the shotgun as a surprisingly accurate rifle.

      • Yeah, If I ever get back into playing double trap, I’ll get an over/under.

        I wouldn’t have a problem using one to hunt dangerous game, and I’d be pretty okay with it for home defense. Someone with questionable ability to hit targets under adverse conditions needs more than two shots. The over/under isn’t a perfect gun, but can still be a pretty useful one.

        Safari hunting guides in Africa traditionally used double barreled rifles in huge Nitro Express calibers to back up their customers hunting dangerous game. If the hunter shot a cape buffalo but didn’t stop it, and the buffalo charged, the idea was that the guide would drop it at very close range with the double rifle. While the rifle may have offered only two shots, it would work with 100% reliability, unlike a bolt action that could jam. Today the double rifles have gotten scarce, as they often cost as much as a new Mercedes, and the guides themselves have switched to bolt actions.

        It’s even more true in a sense with double barreled or over/under shotguns. Semiautomatic and pump shotguns can jam, doubles never do.

      • Biden’s campaign knows he won’t get any red states where the NRA is strongest. But the msm’s years of gun bashing is starting to have an affect. It used to be a winning issue for the GOP. Now, it might be a losing one. So bashing guns might actually pick up votes in swing states. They know they can’t pass anything serious because SCOTUS will overturn it. But they’ll still campaign on it.

      • Well-maintained semi-autos and pumps from quality manufacturers are very reliable. And I’ve read that 12ga shotguns with slugs are popular among guides as well fish and wildlife officers in bear country. I doubt they’re carrying double barrel shotguns. Most likely Remington 870 pumps. That’s what most law enforcement used before they switched to AR15’s. So I’m pretty sure that’s what officers in bear country are still using.

      • Jams in pump actions usually happen when people fail to pull the slides all the way to the rear (“short shucking”). This is something that becomes less likely with experience, but can happen to anyone in a panicked moment. Most semiautomatic jams are the result of poor cleaning.
        Public agencies in Alaska customarily equip outdoors workers with slug-equipped shotguns because they’re less expensive that powerful rifles. In Svalbard, people who travel outside the town of Longyearbyen are required to be armed, given the constant threat of polar bears. People without guns can borrow them from the police, with appropriate paperwork. Rifles of 30-06 or greater are preferred, and are all that the police supply, although 12 gauge shotguns with slugs or handguns of 44 magnum or greater are allowed.

    • When Biden ran in 2008, he got very low percentage of primary votes because he was a ditzy old goof. But the other candidates were more normal folk. Now 12 years later, the other candidates are loose from the asylum and off their meds which makes senile fossils like Bernie and Biden seem much better by comparison. But they aren’t really much better. Anyway, if anyone has his social security mortality rate table of life expectancy by age handy, you can tell us all the likelihood of Biden or Bernie even being alive by inauguration day.

  3. There was a similar gap between people noticing Reagan’s dementia (approx. halfway through his second term) and the public announcement that he was suffering from Alzheimer’s (by handwritten note in 1994).

    • CBS reporter Lesley Stahl covered the White House for most of Reagan’s presidency. One time, she, her husband, and her daughter were granted a private audience with him. She wrote in her autobiography that, at first, he appeared completely senile – a “doddering space cadet.” But then she happened to mention that her husband was a screenwriter, and he suddenly came to life. Evidently this was not an uncommon occurrence in his second term – he would droop off into la-la land, but then he would recover:

      Re: Rudy’s campaign, it was a real bummer. His strategy of waiting until Massachusetts to actually campaign blew up in his face. That, combined with his ex wife’s performance in The Vagina Monologues really did a number on him. The hideous influence of feminism and feminists in our culture cannot be overstated.

      That he had one of those predatory film-flam conservative Inc consultants working for him only made matters worth.

    • Just a personal observation, but older people who have cancer treatments or major surgeries almost never fully recover; hardest hit are stamina and cognitive ability. Biden, a cancer survivor, is clearly in a mental decline. Which would be perfectly fine if he were rocking on the front porch with his grandkids, not running for President.

      Guliani, another cancer survivor, also seems to be suffering some cognitive decline as well. His TV interviews during Russia-gate have been an embarrassment, which is why he’s been about the only administration representative to be allowed on National and cable news shows. NBC ran his Truth isn’t truth promo for months.

      Of course NBC won’t be running Biden’s Truth over Facts line. They are still on Team Biden.

      • The legal commenter community has ignored this groundbreaking decision. Mostly, I suspect, because they figure that the 9th is so crazy so often they just don’t have time to cover all their nonsense.

        The decision is mostly unintelligible. The holding says that there shall be no ticketing of unlawful camping on public property as long as there is uncertainty about whether there is a shelter bed in the municipality for every homeless person on the night in question. And then qualifies the holding with a coda adding a practicability element. Nobody seems to have a clue as to what the court intended and, as a result, the thing is being interpreted a myriad of ways. Leftists are saying there shall be no ticketing for camping without knowing in advance each and every homeless person has shelter. Others, the City of Oakland, simply relies on making sure homeless are offered shelter before ticketing and discovered that most homeless don’t want to go to shelter.

        The decision is rationalized as a violation of the 8th Amendment to the US Constitution (cruel and unusual punishment). The defendant, the City of Boise, had a reasonable working arrangement where they suspended tickets on nights all the shelters in town reported as full. As it turns out, that never happened, but one of the plaintiff’s was kicked out of a shelter and we don’t know if he tried the other shelters but this was sufficient to justify the court moving forward (which tells you how anxious they were to create new law no matter what the fact pattern).

        Part of me wonders whether the sheer inscrutability of the case has put commenters off or whether they just figure homelessness is an west coast phenomenon not worth the commenting energy.

        Trump thinks like a businessman. He doesn’t think like a statesman, responsible for the patrimony of the historic American people, but he is better than the rest. He has an atavistic sense that things are spinning out of control but doesn’t have the intellectual fortitude to build a coherent political philosophy around this sense. Of course, if he did, the reaction from the left would be thunderous, overwhelming any of their previous tantrums, but this is precisely what we need. This is precisely what the times demand.

Giuliani comes across as a guido fascist, who is no friend of moolis. I’m sure you’ve seen Giuliani get confrontational and gets into his guido mode, “I’m going to throw you down the stairs” moment, except it’s very logic based and unemotional.

    Abortion or any of the other social issues had nothing to do with it. By the time the ’08 election rolled around people wanted to fire Bush 43, but he was not on the ballot, so they did the next best thing. McCain also screwed up by calling off his campaign during the financial crisis, while Obama kept campaigning. McCain did everything he could to signal that he knew his role was to be a good loser, and he played the role to a “T.”

Internet activism is creating a lot of false signals in today’s politics; that’s why you have 15 candidates fighting over 60% of the vote while the rest of the Democratic Party is just conceded to Biden, the only man willing to run in their lane. Voters will be forced to ask what’s worse, a guy who’s senile or a socialist race-baiter? As recently as 10 years ago nobody in as feeble condition as Biden would even be in the conversation.

  14. OT: prole or non-prole?

    There’s a man I know, late 20’s, who muddies the distinction between proles and non-proles because he can’t easily be classified. He got a degree in 2010 from one of the state university campuses in a nonspecialized field. He graduated into a very weak job market with no immediate job prospects. A few months after graduation, he took a job as an overnight custodian in a high school. No, it was hardly what you’d expect of a college graduate, but he needed something and would stay there only so long as it took to find a college graduate-type job in an office.

    Nine years later he’s still an overnight custodian and as far as I know seldom if ever looks for an office job. He earns a decent if not spectacular salary, has a full benefits plan with union job protection, and a vested pension. Most nights he works with one or two other people in a noncompetitive atmosphere quite unlike the cutthroat competition found in many offices. Even working nights isn’t a drawback because he’s used to it and it meshes well with his wife’s work schedule.

    So, is this a hopelessly prole thing or not?

  15. Giuliani suffered a severe headache in December 2007 for which he was hospitalized.

    NPR:

    Health Scare Comes at Bad Time for Giuliani
    December 24, 2007·4:00 PM ET
    Heard on All Things Considered

    Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani has been fielding questions about his health after a headache landed him in a Missouri hospital last week. The incident comes at a bad time for Giuliani, who has begun to slip from national front-runner status into the middle of the pack in many early voting states.

    MELISSA BLOCK, host:

    Rudy Giuliani is among the presidential candidates taking today and tomorrow off. Then he’s back on the campaign trail, not in Iowa or New Hampshire, but in Florida. Giuliani has seen his early substantial lead in national polls collapse in the last few weeks. In Iowa, he’s running fifth, in New Hampshire maybe third. And last week, he had to turn his campaign plane around and spend the night in the hospital after suffering what he now describes as the worst headache he’s ever had. Giuliani says his doctor will release details on his health later in the week. Here he is speaking yesterday on ABC’s “This Week.”

    (Soundbite of TV show, “This Week”)

    Mr. RUDY GIULIANI (Former Republican Mayor, New York): You know, I’m a cancer survivor so there’s always the issue of cancer, so I’m going to have him put out a statement and then, you know, make everyone really comfortable that I’m okay.

    BLOCK: Political correspondent Celeste Katz is covering the Giuliani campaign in the New York Daily News. And, Celeste, Rudy Giuliani – they’re referring to his bout with prostate cancer diagnosed back in 2000 and one of the things that made him drop out of the New York senate race against Hillary Clinton at that time.

  16. “I really do think that Biden is in the early stages of some sort of dementia”

    Libertarian blogger Tarl Warwick, who publishes YouTube content under the moniker Styxhexenhammer666, has been stating the same thing for a while now and I’m prone to believe it myself.

  17. […] Yet it looks like Democrats may very well be stupid enough to give the nomination to Warren. Warren is the favorite at prediction markets, probably for the reasons I stated here. […]
