Biden-Swalwell Ticket for the 2020 Presidential Election?

| December 8, 2018 | 46 Comments

Remember Representative Eric Swalwell and his “reminder” to legal gun owners? The guy that insinuates that if the government decides to take weapons away, and legal gun owners resist, they should comply instead on the account that the government has nuclear weapons.

Eric Swalwell recently talked about his running on a ticket, with Senator Biden, in the 2020 Presidential election. He’d be happy to run as Vice President, or even as President.

The guy that argues that people shouldn’t resist the government, because it has nukes, ponders being the guy that authorizes the launching of nuclear weapons.

From twitchy:

But on Thursday, Swalwell told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that he’d happily consider sharing the ticket with Joe Biden … and he’s “open to entertaining both variations,” meaning he can see himself at the top of a ticket with Biden. Swalwell/Biden? That’s not going to happen.

Some of the responses to that article are hilarious. You can read more here.

Thanks to AW1Ed for the link.

    If he only had a brain….

  2. OWB says:

    Great choice. Usually the nominee gets to make that decision, but, hey – why not do it this way instead? Lookin good, dims.

  3. Tallywhagger says:

    J’Obiden is just looking at a new vector for gaining access to young women. Does Swalwell have young daughters?

  4. The Other Whitey says:

    Creepy Drunkle Joe, AKA Shotgun Joe, and “Nuke ‘em” Swalwell. Real winners!

    Miss Punkin Squawky Pants and The Kay Kitty would not only have a better chance of winning, they would do a better job.

    M. Punkin is a hell of a mouser; come in handy getting the rest of the rats out of DC.

    The K. Kitty is a Russian Blue with the class, taste, beauty, and charm of Melania.

    There is sound political reasoning behind this. Squawky Pants, an Illinois Native, would get the support of the Chicago Political Machine, even with her Repub leaning. After all, that machine has already helped to elect one pussy.

    Kay Kitty, a true born and bred Southerner, would appeal to the Magnolia and Mint Juleps crowd. Her heart wrenching tale of homeless feral, to rescue, to becoming Lordess over all her domain is Academy Award Winning material.

    Swallows Well.
    He has a catchy name to campaign on.

  7. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Stalwell says he doesn’t care whether he or Joe is on top or on the bottom, just so long as they’re together. That’s sweet, in a queer sort of way.

  8. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Stalwell/Swallow/Whatever.

  9. Skyjumper says:

    Well, Cher sees no problem with Swallowswell being on top of Uncle Joe or under him.

    She supports both.

    The line that creeps me out is when she said this about Biden:

    “I would love to see [Biden] with someone young”

    Good thing Chastity is now Chaz. /s

    Dear Democrats:

    No. Fucking. BALLS. Do it, and you’ll see a 50-state sweep. But not in your favor.

  11. Ex-PH2 says:

    Anyone who attaches Biden to her/himself is almost guaranteeing a Trump win in 2020.

    • Prusmc says:

      It will be Biden with Kamala Harris as VP.It has to be a male and female match up with one being minority. Until Elizabth Warren self destructed, she looked like a VP possibility with Cory Booker. EITHER Bernie or Joe will have Harris on the ticket. IF Kamala is first chair then Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, he’s not a Hispanic but plays one on TV. Also he has been well coached by watching old Kennedy videos. Watch his Bobby style brushing hair back out of his eyes.

      • NHSparky says:

        Doubt it’s Harris. VP’s don’t win the election for the top of the ticket, although in more than one case they’ve lost it for the candidate.

        O’Rourke is a good Dem pick for several reasons: he’s young, popular with women and minorities, is known nationally, has overall favorable ratings, and comes from a state Dems would LOVE to win (or at least be competitive in) during the 2020 race.

        As for the top of the ticket? Warren is out. She barely got 60 percent of the vote in a heavily Dem state in a midterm year. Bernie is still a force, and his pounding the socialist bandwagon far longer than any other candidate.

        Harris and Booker might make it to Super Tuesday, but not much past that. Which then leads us to Clinton. Yeah, she might actually try again, or at least try to play kingmaker. But again, the “tour” she and Bill are on is little more than a feeler for a 2020 run, and so far, it ain’t going well.

        There are a few other folks I have in mind, but these are the strongest candidates to be viable past Iowa and New Hampshire.

        YMMV.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      O’Rourke is destined to become awash in Macron syndrome. Macron got it from Trudeau. They are all clones of each other.

  12. Devtun says:

    Swalwell from Califruitnuts ain’t no use to Biteme. He needs someone high profile from a battleground State, or traditional Blue States the Dems lost in ’16 like Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin. Biden is too old anyways. He’ll be closing on 78 election day 2020.

  13. Mason says:

    I’ve been predicting this for a year now. He’ll be towards the top of the list of candidates. He’s too Manchurian Candidate not to at least warrant some serious consideration from the DNC.

  14. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    “Groping Joe” Biden and “Swallowing” Swallwell, the latter’s “We’ll nuke you over your Guns” stance pretty much guarantees a humiliating defeat in Red State “Flyover Country”.

    • NHSparky says:

      Assuming the economy remains strong.

      Put us in a recession or if another (reasonable) 3rd party candidate emerges, it’s 1992 redux.

      • 11B-Mailclerk says:

        You can expect in 2020 there will be strong financial shadow-backing of a Libertarian candidate that leans Right.

        Any “green” or “socialist” effort will get bought off early on.

        California “vote harvesting” will be at epic levels, even in the states and territories where it is still a felony.

        In short, they know they are on desperate ground, and will thus predictably go all out cheat.

  15. swallow would have made a great Red Coat General back in 1776 in trying to disarm the Colonists.

    • The Other Whitey says:

      Swalwell would’ve been a textbook example of the British rich kid whose daddy bought him an officer’s commission so he could go be useless on the other side of the world instead of being useless at home. He would probably be shocked to the point of vaporlock when American militiamen didn’t instantly obey his command to surrender their arms.

    • rgr769 says:

      General hell, the Swallower couldn’t lead his own ass to the back door of Brucie’s bath house.

  16. NDHoosier says:

    The Germans have a perfect word for this clown: Backpfeifengesicht – “a face in need of a fist”, or, more literally “a face that should be slapped”.

  17. AW1Ed says:

    Welcome, thebesig. Saw this and knew you would do it justice.

  18. Tallywhagger says:

    That puke really does have a face that is worthy of a combination lock in a sock.

    Pitiful SOB would have more credibility working a traffic island with a cardboard sign, in front of a WalMart location.

  19. 11B-Mailclerk says:

    What is troubling is that the proposed pair-up would be the -sane- option, the least-harm option, for the Dem nomination.

    Let -that- sink in for a bit.

  20. Ex-PH2 says:

    I just had a brilliant idea. Want to run it by you all, to see how it works.

    Joe Swallowswell & Cory the Booker, or as an altrnate, Swellowswell, the Booker and Obviously Confused. Two vice presidents, you see – they could alternate the job between them, even take separate vacations, and never leave the country unharmed by their return.

    Just an idea.
