(Tea Party PAC) – Former Vice President Joe Biden is “celebrating” his gloriously bad New Hampshire primary loss with plenty of gaffes and hilarity.
Although it’s a bit pathetic that he thinks his campaign is doing well.
Speaking to supporters in South Carolina, where he headed after he was clearly losing New Hampshire’s key primary in a major way, Biden declared that his campaign is still full of life and ready to rock.
“Tonight, we just heard from the first two of 50 states. Not all of nation, not have…not a quarter of the nation, but two [states],” Biden said. “Now, where I come from that’s the opening bell. Not the closing bell.”
In spite of this confident tone, Biden immediately declared that while “Iowa and Nevada have spoken,” his campaign was ready to face the upcoming races.
Of course, the only states who have “spoken” thus far are Iowa and New Hampshire, reminding us yet again that this man has barely any idea what’s going on.
The gaffes continued.
While he boasted of his support among black voters, Biden declared that his two-time running mate, Barack Obama, had defeated an incumbent president in 2008.
Of course, in 2008, Obama was running against fellow candidate John McCain to take the place of then-outgoing President George W. Bush.
All those Democrats that won against incumbents, from Jimmy Carter to a guy named Clinton and a guy named Obama, my good friend, guess what. They had overwhelming African American support. Without it nobody’s ever won.
Biden delivered these remarks shortly after polls closed in New Hampshire, where is campaign had failed miserably.
As of Wednesday morning, Biden was squeaking in in 5th place in the Granite State with just 8.4% of the vote with 97% reporting, according to the New York Times.
This has only gone down from Tuesday evening, when 75% of districts were reporting and Biden was at 10%.
The poor showing all but ensures Biden will not receive any delegates from the state, even though his campaign and an affiliated Super PAC spent heavily in the closing in a last ditch effort to avoid disaster.
Biden’s embarrassing loss in a state he’d predicted he could win comes just on the heels of his fourth-place finish in the Iowa Caucuses.
These losses, along with his campaign’s tight budget, is leading many to admit that the campaign appears to be doomed.
South Carolina is likely to either be a firewall or a last stand, Breitbart notes, as Biden himself admitted Tuesday evening.
“I know, this is going to be the fight of my life,” Biden told his supporters. “I can’t do it alone, I need your help to climb this mountain.”
