The rally that took place at Gilley’s, the honky-tonk made famous by the movie “Urban Cowboy” was supposed to be a triumph for former Vice President Joe Biden. The event that occurred the day after Biden won the South Carolina Primary was a high point of Biden’s third quest for the presidency. Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar had both quit the race and had come down to kiss his ring and offer their endorsement. Even Beto O’Rourke, whose presidential campaign had ended in ignominy months ago, had shown up in search of relevance again.

Biden, as he tends to do, had to ruin the occasion by uttering one of his famous gaffes. Fox News reports that while attempting to quote the Declaration of Independence, the candidate instead said, “We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men and women are created, by the, you know, you know the thing.”

The former vice president was apparently attempting to quote the first sentence of the second paragraph of Thomas Jefferson’s magnificent document. For those gentle readers who attended school as millennials, where we are told that American history is taught as victim narratives out of Howard Zinn, the line Biden fumbled reads, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Jefferson, an old fashioned 18th Century man, was not very inclusive in his language. He states “all men” are created equal, not “all men and women.” Jefferson mentions the Creator, i.e. God, leaving out atheists. And he notes that unalienable rights include “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness,” anathema for the modern Democratic Party, which ironically Jefferson helped to found.

One has to hand it to Biden, though. At least he vaguely remembers the Declaration of Independence and believes it is important to quote in a political speech. Bernie Sanders, his main rival, would likely be never caught dead with the words of a dead, white slaveholder on his lips. He is more likely to quote from the Communist Manifesto.

Not content to mangle the Declaration of Independence, Biden also forgot what day of the week it was. He referred to “Super Thursday” instead of “Super Tuesday” as the contest where 14 states will decide who gets their delegates to the Democratic National Convention.

Biden made the third gaffe later in the festivities. When Beto O’Rourke came up to bend the knee (metaphorically) and offer his fealty, the candidate offered him a job in his administration, according to Hot Air. Biden promised that O’Rourke would be tasked with “taking care of the gun problem” in the United States.

The fact that Beto once declared, “Hell yes, we’re taking away your AR 15s,” a promise that helped to sink his quixotic presidential campaign, is not the half of the matter, as Hot Air notes.

“What does that even mean? Gun control is a law enforcement issue. Could Biden actually be considering putting O’Rourke in as Attorney General? Looking over his resume, you will find that Beto has just about the least qualifications imaginable for such a position. He was an English major in college and worked a series of what were basically odd jobs before becoming a perennial candidate for public office. Even in Congress, none of the committees he sat on had anything to do with gun control or any other law enforcement activities. In reality, the sum total of O’Rourke’s involvement with the law was being arrested for burglary and fleeing the scene of his DUI accident.”

Hot Air goes on to speculate that Biden might put Beto in a made-up post of “Gun Control Czar.” Remember, O’Rourke proposed that law enforcement officers be sent door to door to confiscate firearms, which even some gun control advocates have suggested would become a train wreck with gun owners either lying about whether or not they have forbidden firearms or violently resisting the breach of their 2nd Amendment rights.

Gaffes like fumbling the Declaration of Independence and promising to put the biggest gun grabber in American politics in charge of gun control, the latter deep in the heart of gun-loving Texas, has Democratic Party leaders concerned about whether Biden is the best candidate to save them from the Bernie apocalypse. But if not Biden, who will be the Democrats’ white knight? Perhaps no one.

  1. Biden is SENILE. The reason he called it a ‘thing’, the Demons do not believe in God. That’s exactly why Biden wouldn’t say ‘God’. And he is running for President?? Voters better wake up and wake up FAST!!

  2. Pathetic specimen for the candidacy of President of these United States! Over 330 million people in this nation and Biden is the best the Demonrats can do? The man is rapidly slipping into the land of dementia! OMG!

  3. Joe has NEVER been the brightest crayon in the box. At this point he is not even in the box. He is the crayon that is broken in 2 or three pieces with no paper on it.

  4. Truthfully, I feel sorry for Mr. Biden. The Democrats are desperate to find a viable candidate. But neither Sanders nor Biden are acceptable to the majority of the educated American voters. The Democratic National Committee must be in “Panic Mode!”
