Joe Biden turned out to be one of the worst candidate the left can muster. Playing it safe also didn’t work out for Romney, Hillary, etc.
Now days, Americans want to be inspired at the top of the ticket. Hillary voter’s ambivalence, for example, caused too many to stay home on election day.
Joe Biden is not inspiring anyone either. In fact, he is doing the opposite. Jessica Roman, an Iowa teacher was not happy with Biden getting all touchy with her.
Unfortunately for the Democratic candidate, reporters were there to capture the embarrassing and awkward moment for posterity.
“I think that he means well but, you know, he grabbed my hands right away and that was really uncomfortable,” she told the Washington Examiner.
“He was very close and, in my mind, I’m like, this is part of our problem: Not recognizing that you need to ask first, or can I shake your hand? Not just grab your hands and hang onto them. That bothers me.”
Jessica Roman, who is leaning toward caucusing for California Sen. Kamala Harris or Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, wanted a little more details in the answer to her question about collective bargaining in Iowa, which has a restrictive framework similar to Wisconsin.
It was “a very well rehearsed list” that “didn’t really speak” to her inquiry, the Iowa teacher said.
Joe Biden has been accused by at least 8 women of touching them without their permission. Amid a furor over the allegations, he said that he accepted that “social norms are changing,” adding: “I will be more mindful about respecting personal space in the future. That’s my responsibility, and I will meet it.”
His wife Jill said that his unwanted contact “won’t happen again.” Just few days after his vow to change, however, Joe Biden joked about the allegations.
And despite repeated advice from his staff, Joe Biden still routinely touches women and children at events, whether they like it or not.
