President Biden tells Congressional Democrats “I’m not going” in lengthy letter

That he wrote all by himself.

It absolutely was not written by Hunter Biden.

The manic, frenetic language has absolutely no similarity to Hunter Biden’s writing.

And I am telling you...

by Anonymousreply 3July 8, 2024 1:55 PM

Yeah, it's a good thing no Trump ever read words that someone else wrote.

by Anonymousreply 4July 8, 2024 1:56 PM

Hunter has always exerted some element of control over his father, especially since the death of his older brother, Beau, in 2015. But in the addled state Joe is in now, unable to hide his cognitive deficits, Hunter is in the driver’s seat like never before.

That’s bad news for Democrats — and disastrous for the country.

Those who know Hunter well say that, despite his reputation as a crackhead loser, he is highly intelligent, manipulative, methodical and always out for his own ends, which, now more than ever, depend on his father maintaining power.

“Knowing them on a familial level, they [will] have to be dragged out,” said one former friend.

“I think the Bidens are going to fight all the way into the ground,” said another. “[They] only give a s- -t about themselves and the Bidens.”

Hunter also is fearless and willing to fight to the death to get what he wants. That makes him a formidable adversary for any hapless Democrat believing that all they have to do is sweet-talk Jill and Ashley Biden or appeal to Joe’s sense of party loyalty and desire to preserve his legacy.

Hunter has a lot at stake personally in Joe remaining in office. He has benefited from Joe’s power all his life, but now his future is in peril, with a looming felony tax trial in California as he awaits sentencing over his felony gun conviction in Delaware.

In other words, Hunter may view the situation as a dry run for his own political ambitions, perish the thought.

Various communications on his abandoned laptop also show he is not fond of the Obamas, and harbors a resentment that they did not respect his father sufficiently when he was vice president.

In his 2021 memoir, “Beautiful Things,” Hunter wrote that he didn’t like hanging around the Obama White House because “I didn’t want to be in the position of walking into a barbecue on a Sunday with the president and the White House staff after reading about someone throwing my dad under the bus. I knew I couldn’t control my temper and keep my mouth shut.”

If he perceives an Obama push to get rid of his father now, that will only make him dig in harder.

Apart from saving his own skin, Hunter will be enjoying the feeling of control he has at the center of the constitutional crisis facing the nation, says another former friend. He may see it as a “proving ground for his leadership skills and believe that his manifest destiny is playing out.”

Perhaps the only way to remove the Biden family grift machine is to bribe them out. Or, to put it more politely, for the Democratic donor class to provide a golden parachute of lucrative book deals, a lavish presidential library and a guaranteed pardon for any family members in legal jeopardy.

“That would do the trick,” said one former Biden confidant.

Agree with R1. I read an e-mail Hunter wrote quite a while ago and was struck by how poorly written it was. It was a very stereotypical example of someone trying hard to sound smart. Which would be no big deal if it were someone with a more limited or lower quality education. But not a Yale Law School graduate. I remember thinking, “Huh. he’s not just a fuck up. He’s stupid, too.”

The fact that it was released is very disturbing. Implies there is no adult supervision.

He probably wouldn't mind it, but the machine is now moving full speed ahead. The money, the momentum... Yes, even Biden will benefit from being the incumbent.

On the plus side- he's pushing Trump off the front page! Lots of free publicity.

If Biden wins it will be a final verdict for Trump: you're fired.

Biden deserves the right to go down in the history books as the man who destroyed Donald Trump. I don't give a flying fuck what he looks or sounds like when he's doing public engagements. When he's in private in the Oval Office doing his job he knows exactly what he's doing, and is doing a stellar job of it.

by Anonymousreply 15July 8, 2024 2:41 PM

But he didn’t destroy Donald Trump. Trump will be elected again because of Biden.

If the 25th is pursued, a new Vice President will have to be chosen. They will have to go with an extremely centrist dem in order to get approval from the House. Maybe even a centrist Republican.


If the Vice President assumes the presidency, a new Vice President is chosen according to Section 2 of the 25th Amendment. The process is as follows:

1. **Nomination by the President:** - The new President (formerly the Vice President) nominates a candidate for Vice President.

2. **Confirmation by Congress:** - The nominee must be confirmed by a majority vote in both the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Here is the relevant text from Section 2 of the 25th Amendment:

> Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress.

### Summary of the Process:

1. **Nomination:** - The President nominates a candidate for Vice President.

2. **House of Representatives:** - The nominee is considered by the House of Representatives. A majority vote is required for confirmation.

3. **Senate:** - The nominee is also considered by the Senate. A majority vote is required for confirmation.

4. **Assumption of Office:** - Once confirmed by both Houses of Congress, the nominee becomes the new Vice President.

This process ensures that the office of the Vice President is filled in a timely manner, maintaining the line of succession and stability within the executive branch.
