Again on Morning Joe, the discussion was about the power of political perception. Jeff Greenfield was on the show and he's the only one who brought up the fact that perception might not be taken for reality. The focus of the Morning Joe panel discussion was Joe Biden and his populist speech yesterday. Joe Scarborough said that populism doesn't usually work but then went on to praise Biden's populist message. The Morning Joe guests were all pundits who favor Democrats, so the discussion was just a little biased.
It's amazing these intelligent men and women are using Biden as an example of the authenticity they think is needed to reach the common American. Either the Leftists on Morning Joe want people to believe Biden is in touch with their problems so that Obama's out of touch fumbling will be ameliorated, or they don't know any authentic people and think Biden is one, or they are just desperate to hold someone in the political class up as the real deal so that perception hopefully becomes reality. Does Scarborough really believe Biden "gets it"? Biden is one of the phoniest people in DC. Biden is the country's number 1 patsy selling the economy destroying policies of the Democrats. Biden is a political saleman, that's all. It's an insult to real working people to present Biden as someone who understands how they tick. It's really insulting to continue portraying Americans as the hoi polloi workers as the gates yearning for words of comfort from someone with a heart on the other side of the gate. Americans are diverse, and many Americans are more capable than the clowns in DC -- they want the clowns in DC to stop wasting money and destroying the economy.
Yes, the few union members left who want government protection will circle around Biden and call him a hero, but that old Democratic Party is dissipating. OWS is not so easily won over by Biden's smile and backslapping routine.There was a bit of racist undertone in the conversation in that the panel appeared to be looking for a white front man who can offset Obama's negatives among the white working community.
