For Obama’s slip-up to be any more ‘on the nose’, he’d have to be wearing some of our Let’s Go Brandon merch.
Obama went back to the well with a tried-and-true tactic of disparaging the other guy by telling a campy homespun story about a hypothetical stand-in for a Republican.
This time, it was about that uncle in the family. You know the type. Everyone loves him dearly, but everyone knows he’s not as sharp as he used to be. If we’re being honest, the guy should probably give up his car keys.
It’s not the first time Obama has told this kind of story. It won’t be the last.
But he slipped up in his telling of this story. It was a fictional story, after all, and he could have used any made-up name he wanted. But of all the names he could have picked…
OBAMA: "We all know some folks in our lives who — we don’t wish them ill will. They say crazy stuff & we’re all like, ‘Well, you know, Uncle Joe, you know what happened to him.’ They're part of the family but you don't give them serious responsibilities."pic.twitter.com/4cl6Ibmuro

… he went with ‘Uncle Joe’, the incompetent.
Considering Biden’s track record and approval ratings, maybe invoking incompetent old uncle Joe is NOT exactly the kind of narrative the Democrat candidate wants to keep top-of-mind when they go to the polls on Tuesday.
But it DOES remind us what the stakes really are. After all, Joe ran as a ‘moderate’ but has been legislating as a radical. Now everyone knows he’s a lame duck with no real shot at getting the nomination again. That means Joe no longer has to ‘hold back’ has agenda for fear of how it would hurt a future election.
Joe has got a real shot at being the first President in history to go directly from the White House to whatever the rich DC insider’s equivalent is to a nursing home.
At this point, he’s looking at questions of ‘legacy’ and the hard-left activists and his donor class are the ones defining what that ‘legacy’ ought to look like — with little, if any, concern for the impact those policies will have on ordinary Americans.
