Barack Obama and Joe Biden like to portray themselves as having a close relationship.
That is not true at all.
And Nancy Pelosi revealed Barack Obama is jealous of Joe Biden for this strange reason.
When it looked like Joe Biden’s presidential campaign was about to crash and burn in early 2020 reports leaked out that Obama did not want Joe Biden to run for president.
Even after Biden won the nomination POLITICO reported that Obama previously told Joe Biden’s rivals that Biden was a political incompetent lacking a connection to the Democrat Party electorate.
“Yet searing, anonymously sourced quotes from Obama kept appearing through the race. One Democrat who spoke to Obama recalled the former president warning, ‘Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to fuck things up.’ Speaking of his own waning understanding of today’s Democratic electorate, especially in Iowa, Obama told one 2020 candidate: ‘And you know who really doesn’t have it? Joe Biden,’” POLITICO reports.
New York Times reporters Alexander Burns and Jonathan Martin’s new book “This Will Not Pass” builds on this reporting.
In the book Martin and Burns report that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi came away from her conversations with Barack Obama with the impression that Obama was jealous of Biden because the corporate media built up Joe Biden as the new FDR.
Fox News reports:
According to the book, which will be released next Tuesday, Obama and Biden spoke by phone “occasionally” at the outset of Biden’s presidency, and their conversations were “hardly the stuff of the tight brotherhood both men had sold to the country as a cheery political fable.”
“Nancy Pelosi, who spoke regularly with the former president, came away from her conversations with Obama during this period with a matter-of-fact diagnosis. She told a friend: ‘Obama is jealous of Biden,’” the book alleges.
According to his adviser, Biden said, “I am confident that Barack is not happy with the coverage of this administration as more transformative than his,” the book alleges.
One of the main takeaways on the left was that Barack Obama did not swing for the fences on the phony 2009 stimulus bill.
Obama set one of the parameters of the bill that the price tag must not exceed one trillion dollars.
Biden was determined not to repeat this supposed “mistake” and in doing so destroyed his own presidency.
Democrats rammed through a $1.9 trillion blue state bailout bill that even liberal economists predicted would cause massive inflation.
Inflation spiked to 8.5 percent – the highest level in 41 years – causing Biden’s poll numbers to sink to the point where many expect Biden will not run for re-election in 2024.
