Rep.Tim Ryan basically said that V.P.Joe Biden was mentally incompetent.

He was just being interviewed by MSNBC . It wasn't subtle and he went on for quite awhile.


I sent...." @RepTimRyan You are done. How dare you infer that a fellow candidate is "declining" in mental health. I promise to do everything I can to make you look like the nasty, sad, losing and jealous loser that you are."

He tried to do this in a more understated way to Nancy Pelosi when she was running for speaker. He is, in my opinion, a sleazy bottom feeder who is bad for the party.

new and appalling instances of Presidential corruption in the news, but it is more salient to denigrate the front runner in this way? Which side are you on, Tim?

he would say something sleazy about her too. That's the only tool in his tool box.

Parroting trump talking points will get him nowhere fast. I welcome the fact that both Biden & Warren are conducting live and let live campaigns. Handing slimy used bullets to MF45 is dumb.dumb.dumb.

6. Yeah, Ryan is definitely a bottom feeder

 

Ever since he tried to undercut Pelosi, I've been very suspicious of him. Though I actually like a lot of the things he says, I don't trust him as a person. I think he'll do or say anything to further his career.

Going after a popular Democrat like Joe Biden is not a good way to win Democratic votes.

...(or their campaigns) that haven't broken that pledge are Biden and Warren.

I know they have some policy differences but the two of them would be an unbeatable ticket (and I don't care a bit that they are no spring chickens). Tim Ryan was the same guy who dissed Nancy Pelosi in somewhat the same way, and he can go pound sand.

15. And actually any policy differences

 

between most of the candidates are really quite minor. As such, voters are going to be looking at the person first and foremost. I try to picture a candidate physically in the Oval Office, meeting with foreign leaders, or giving the State of the Union address.

As for Ryan, he needs to earn some respect before he tries to take down people like Nancy Pelosi or Joe Biden. I'd say he needs to walk a mile in their shoes, but I doubt he could last a block. They didn't get to where they are by luck or accident.

10. Warren made some snarky remarks about fundraisers

 

immediately after Biden announced, but has kept her counsel since then. I am hoping she does not get drawn into a punch up on the Bankruptcy Act. Interviewers have played that video of her appearance before the Senate, but she has refused to take the bait.

and seems to really be in touch with how voters feel. Voters hate watching Democratic politicians going after one another, though republicans probably love it.

18. This is the type of behavior I expect to see in mayoral campaigns. It's unseemly.

 

He doesn't have the demeanor or temperament to be the Leader of the Free World. --- I'm sure that in his heart-of-hearts he knows he's not going to be our party's nominee. So what good purpose does it serve for him to try and kneecap our party's likely nominee?

And will not improve his standing in the primary. Anymore than the nastiness kept Nancy Pelosi from being Speaker of the House.

which is why I used it as the title. I did not write down his exact words but it fully encapsulates his statement.

Honestly, reacting to what he said probably amplifies it more than if everyone just ignored it. I'm just filing his latest statement in my memory, along with MANY other reasons why I would never vote for Tim Ryan--unless he was on the ticket for Pres/VP in the general election. I am FIRMLY in the "Vote Blue, no matter who" category.

went on Real Time and launched into the stupid myth that Democrats ignore the working class: "Will you tell the coal people in your state that coal is last century, we'll retrain you but we're not sending you back down the hole? We didn't go into states like that, we didn't go into rural areas." Bill interjects, "Hillary did." Hillary did exactly what Ryan claims Democrats don't do. How in the hell does he not know this? Or just keeping to some kind of anti-Democratic script.
