Vice President Joe Biden is toying with the idea of entering the race to become the presidential nominee of the Democratic party for 2016. The question is why? The answer may be Bernie Sanders.
Sanders is developing a following as he builds a monster of a grassroots campaign that all the money in the world will not be able to match. Some polls have shown him charging ahead of Hillary Clinton, Wall Street’s choice to be the Democratic candidate, and a person who has deep pockets because of her ties to Wall Street.
A Quinnipiac poll released on Thursday showed Sanders edging Clinton in Iowa, even with Biden in the race. On Wednesday, an NBC/Marist poll showed Sanders wiping out Clinton in New Hampshire, with Biden also included in the polls.
Biden hasn’t entered the race yet, but the polls list him as a candidate. Why?
The answer might be that Sanders would be wiping out Hillary by wider margins, and Wall Street doesn’t want that.
Biden has long been touted as a man of the people. Yet his record suggests he is a man of the people along the lines of Wall Street Senator Ron Wyden, who always votes liberal on social issues while always voting to economically rape and pillage the 99 percent on behalf of Wall Street and the 0.01 percent. In other words, Biden is Wall Street’s wolf in sheep’s clothing.
The idea here is that Biden’s largely false reputation as a man of the people is being used to attract Democrats who otherwise would vote for Sanders. Sanders, instead of beating Clinton by 1 percent in Iowa, and 11 in New Hampshire, would likely be winning by 15 to 20 percent in both states against Wall Street’s favorite female candidate.
Wall Street’s dirty tactics against Sanders haven’t even begun yet, but Biden’s toying with his candidacy suggests those tactics are right around the corner, the more that Sanders gains strength against Clinton.
That’s the way the Democratic leadership works on behalf of Wall Street. Vote for Biden, the stealth candidate. Don’t buy it. Vote Sanders.
