Fox News is reported that former Vice President Joe Biden just landed a new job as a professor of International Diplomacy at the University of Pennsylvania.
Just what we need. Yet another “leftie” brainwashing our youth, and expounding the benefits of liberalism and globalism.
Just three weeks after leaving his role as Vice President, the 74-year old Biden will head up the new Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement. The new department will focus on diplomacy, foreign policy, and national security.
While announcing Biden’s new position at the Ivy League school, U-Penn President Amy Gutmann said “Joe Biden is one of the greatest statesmen of our times.”
Wow. Ms. Guttman certainly has a gift for hyperbole.
Guttman continued, “In his distinguished career of service to our nation, he has demonstrated a unique capacity to bring people together across divides and to craft constructive responses to some of the toughest and most important policy challenges of our day.”
“Bring people together?” That’s a rather odd claim for Ms. Guttman to make, considering Biden was the number 2 person in an administration that many would argue was the most partisan in a generation.
Like Joe Biden, President Obama was once a professor at the University of Chicago, where he taught constitutional law. (Yes, that’s not a misprint. The president who had no respect for America’s constitution actually used to teach constitutional law.)
Indeed, lefties love to pursue teaching careers to as to indoctrinate our youth.
Despite Biden’s new post, Fox News pointed out that the new job may be short-lived. In December of 2015, he told reporters that he was planning on running for president in 2020.
If Biden were to win the U.S. Presidency in 2020, he would be 78 years old, by far the oldest man to ever win the presidency.
Donald Trump, at 70-years old, is currently the oldest American president ever to be swore into office. No one talks about Trump’s excessive age, however, because he has proven to have a remarkable amount of energy and stamina.
