(TNS) So, former President Barack Obama finally got off the sidelines and endorsed his loyal vice president for the 2020 Democratic nomination.

And he did it after the last man standing — Crazy Bernie Sanders, the socialist/Marxist — formally bowed out.

“Choosing Joe to be my Vice President was one of the best decisions I ever made, and he became a close friend,” Obama said in a video released Tuesday. “And I believe Joe has all the qualities we need in a president right now. He’s someone whose own life has taught him how to persevere; how to bounce back when you’ve been knocked down.

“Through all his trials, he’s never once forgotten the values or the moral fiber that his parents passed on to him, and that made him who he is,” Obama added. “That’s what steels his faith — in God, in America, and in all of us.”

Well, good. The god king has spoken and has given us his seal of approval. Now we can all breathe easier and know that coronavirus will soon be eradicated, along with injustice, inequality, and any reason at all to believe there is still hope for the Democrat Party.

So to review, Obama ‘stood up’ for Biden at precisely the moment when it mattered the least. He’s been AWOL the entire campaign thus far, and while some of his loyalists in the garbage media and in the pundit class covered for him, claiming he was simply ‘remaining aloof’ so he didn’t ‘unduly influence’ the outcome, the facts are much more sinister and selfish than that alleged act of nobility.

For Obama, like most anyone who is fair-minded and can see with their eyes and hear with their ears, knows that Biden is simply unfit to be president. Obama knew it when Biden was pushed into the race by other self-serving Democratic operates on the hope that he could secure the nomination with his name and win in November so they could do the governing.

He knows it now. But since there is an opportunity now, here came Obama with his ‘rousing endorsement’ of a presumptive nominee who is the poster boy behind the logic and reasoning for the 25th Amendment.

Obama may even have designs on ‘helping’ Biden govern as well, perhaps with a Cabinet position first and a Supreme Court nod later, now that he has, in fact, bested the crowded Democratic field and is set to win the nomination.

Noble? Hardly. Try egomaniacal and self-centered.

Obama may have even tipped all of us off when he said he knows Biden will “surround himself with good people — experts, scientists, military officials who actually know how to run the government and care about doing a good job running the government, and know how to work with our allies, and who will always put the American people’s interests above their own.”

Biden — or someone on his behalf — responded: “Barack — This endorsement means the world to Jill and me. We’re going to build on the progress we made together, and there’s no one I’d rather have standing by my side.”

We can’t tell the future around here, of course, but we can smell BS when it’s present. And there is a lot of it being shoveled right now.

Time will tell what happens to Obama if Biden happens to stumble into the White House. But our instincts tell us his ‘Barack-come-lately’ endorsement has more to do with what Biden can do for him than the other way around.
