Joe Biden Only Choice for Reagan Republican Conservatives

Today Senator Minnesota Amy Klobuchar decided to end her campaign for the Democratic nomination President.  Yesterday, Mayor Pete dropped out.  It is being reported that both will endorse former Vice President Joe Biden.  While former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg remains in the race, he will probably end his candidacy this week after Super Tuesday's results roll in.

Who will be left then?  Socialist Bernie Sanders, wannabe socialist Elizabeth Warren, and Tulsi Gabbard.  Gabbard, who is is barely even showing up in election results, seems to have an agenda that
does not include actually getting elected President.  Gabbard, who interviewed with President-elect Trump for a cabinet position in 2016, appears exclusively on Fox news.

In short, the once crowded moderate "lane" is about to be occupied by only one person, Biden.  Nonetheless, it will be a struggle for Biden to overtake Sanders who starts out this new electoral phase with a lead in delegates, more money and more enthusiastic supporters.

Biden is far from a perfect candidate  He is too liberal for my tastes on numerous issues..  But, unlike President Donald Trump, Biden is intelligent, honest, competent, knowledgeable, and has the capacity and willingness to learn about things he does not yet know.  Unlike Trump, Biden has a respect for the Constitution, the rule of law, and democratic norms and institutions.  Unlike Trump, Biden is willing to work across the aisle with those with whom he disagrees.  And most importantly, unlike Trump, Biden truly cares about the United States and its people.  While Trump plays the role of a patriot to his gullible band of supporters, Biden is an actual patriot.

I cannot begin to express how embarrassing it is having Donald J. Trump as President these past three years plus. That embarrassment has been made so much worse by the fact that Trump, a lifelong liberal Democrat, was able to con his way into securing the GOP nomination and ultimately the Presidency.   It may take Democrat Joe Biden to rescue the Republican Party from its pending self-immolation over the cultish worship of a failed businessman (but successful con man), who is completely unfit to be President of the United States.

For real conservatives, those who believe in the principles that Ronald Reagan espoused in 1980, there remains only one choice for President in 2020:  Joe Biden.
