The unique perspective and provocative opinions of Joe O’Neill
error: Whatever Hunter Biden’s gas-company board work in Ukraine
involved, this much is clear. He shouldn’t have been there—of all places—doing
it. The money was good, the optics were bad, the ethics questionable. It’s yet
another example of a family member trading on the name of those who came before
them. Down deep, Ivanka might even agree. Not. But if Joe Biden is the nominee
and pushes the “quid pro quo” Ukrainian probe, count on a sneering,
base-pleasing “quidpro Joe” pushback.
it comes to quotes, Biden has, as we well know, a “greatest gaffe hits”
track record. Here’s a memorable one that, in effect, ended his 2008
presidential run. He referred to then-candidate Barack Obama as “the
first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a
nice-looking guy.” Some compliments are more complimentary than others.
