Photo of Biden when he thought no one was looking



His name is Rashid and he is sometimes a guest at Georgetown Ministry Center, frequenting GMC for services like showers and laundry. Like Biden, he has also served his country. Rashid, an Air Force veteran, traveled the globe during the Vietnam War, drawing maps and bomb plots to support U.S. troops in the heat of battle. I was honored and proud to serve, he says of his time in service.

Rashid has experienced homelessness for some time now and when he saw Biden exiting the movie theater last Thursday evening, he asked him for some money so he could buy a sandwich.

Biden obliged and then he stayed to talk.

He didnt think I recognized him, Rashid said of the former dignitary. As they spoke, Rashid shared of the struggles he has been experiencing in receiving assistance from the Department of Veterans Affairs, specifically with procuring a housing voucher that would enable him to receive decent, safe and sanitary housing leaving behind a life on the streets.

It was then that Biden went back into the theater for a pen and paper and jotted down a phone number. It was a personal contact who could assist in helping Rashid. As Biden handed him the slip of paper, a bystander snapped a photo on his phones camera and the rest, as they say in our digital age, is recent history.

I haven't decided on who I support for the primaries (though I have about five favorites), but Biden does not deserve the likes of Flores and her self-attention-grabbing slime campaign

Sigh...and that's a good thing. But do not kid yourself. If we thought Clinton Sanders was a boxing match, this one is going to be 'welcome to thunderdome, bitch' levels of bad until it's over, I suspect.

I'm undecided as yet (full disclosure)

Biden has exp at State. That counts for a LOT for me after Trump's idea of Foreign Policy, if Joe REALLY wants to take another shot at this.

Biden is the only one running with vast experience and knowledge with foreign leaders and foreign policy. Our reputation in the world has been greatly damaged and diminished under the Dotard, hopefully, not beyond repair. His domestic experience in Congress and as Vice-President also gives him big points.

Can't be said of one of the candidates. I see only anger and slogans and pride about ideology in him.

He is the exact opposite of Trump who is a mean, evil person. If Biden is the nominee, and Trump is around to get the republican nomination, it will be quite a contrast, between good and evil.
