Rumored: Joe Biden dropping out of the race!
Pontiac | 9/22/08 | Pontiac

Posted on 09/22/2008 6:19:39 PM PDT by Pontiac

Just got back from my local Republican Party headquarters and they were discussing a rumor that Joe Biden was dropping out of the race. The speculation was that it was due to health.

Is this rumor circulating any where else?

Only everywhere but it’s completely unsubstantiated.

More than likely it’s brain failure. But no mention of it yet anywhere. Could just be speculative rumors.

Yeah, this rumor of Joe Biden dropping from the race has been going around since 1997.

He did set us up for this with his “She’s more qualified than I” statement...

I predicted it would happen.

(I also predicted Sarah Palin 1 month before the convention, I swear, ask my wife!)

It might be true. This turkey is running scared of Palin. He is probably afraid to overstep and she will rip him apart. She could do it in a heartbeat.

He's been suffering from that since the '70s. Hasn't stopped him from campaigning.

The only way I could see this:

Biden drops out, Hillary becomes the VP candidate. She and Obama really do not want this scenario.

Obama is proven not a citizen, Hillary moves up to run for POTUS.

You mean the moo-Saih on his first and biggest decision of the campaign, which is the biggest accomplishment on his resume, picking the mini-me he blew it? That’s not going to look good on the resume. What happened to the vetting, what no vetting.

I don’t think so. O-Biden is going down with the ship.

The Dems probably found out that the hot air from Biden’s mouth contributes to global warming. In that sense, he’s an American version of Darvaza, the gas crater in Central Asia that has been burning since 1971.

Sean Hannity was talking about it today, saying it was just a rumor.

1. Rumor that he will quit due to health.
2. He will make gaffes on purpose and drop out for the good of the party.

No way - that would cost BHO the election. This could only happen if he were in a state of panic, and right now he has a bounce in the polls.

This rumor has been going around for a few days..he may well do that so that Obama can try to get Hillary on the ticket. If I were Hillary I would tell him to go to He**. In any case, this tactic would work against him as it would remove all doubt that he is unable to make decent decisions..and this was the first and maybe one of the most important...after all Biden would be one heart beat from the oval office....And this cost was it Mondale back in the day?

“Obama is proven not a citizen, Hillary moves up to run for POTUS.”

Then bye-bye black vote. Either way Democrats lose this election.

PRESS RELEASE 10/31/2008 DNC CAMPAIGN HEADQUARTERS

It is with regret that we announce the withdrawal of Sen. Joseph Biden from the campaign. He has developed a severe case of Aphtae Epizooticae. This particular condition is highly contagious and presents a severe threat to cloven hoofed animals and other politicians who would have to work in close proximity to him.

Senator Biden has worked particularly hard to overcome his existing Alopecia Dementia and Halitosis (which was a a direct result of the Aphtae Epizooticae affliction and his inability to change his socks on less than a monthly basis.)

He will be replaced on the ticket by Hillary Clinton.

Mrs. Clinton has several pre-existing conditions such as Staurophobia, Photophobia and Alliumphobia, but we feel these will be will controlled by managing her environment carefully. She will be a fine addition to the team, and will be flourish with a steady stream of young, anonymous, unknown male interns to provide her with what she needs.

Yes, the rumor is circulating on the internet. It seems implausible, since it would raise a question about Obama’s judgement that the MSM couldn’t plaster over with lies and obfuscation.

The rumor is this will happen on October 5th, not the 31st. By Halloween, Hillary will have been touring the country on her broomstick for almost 4 weeks.

I hear he’s going to drop out and endorse McCain, owing to the unfairness of Obama’s e-mail ad making fun of McCain’s inadequacy with computers.

Its been going around for a while now. Sean Hannity was even talking about it today, and a local radio host mentioned it as coming from "sources inside the DNC."

The local guy was saying it could happen after the VP debate.

If Hillary joins the ticket she brings her high negatives. She may rally some of the womens vote, but I think Sarah's effect will not be diminished, partly due to the vicious attacks she has weathered (sympathy factor) also people connect with her, something Hillary doesn't get. Hillary getting lots of TV time can't help Obama. At least Biden wasn't a drag on the ticket even if he doesn't help. I see Hillary hurting the ticket as much or even more than helping. It will be interesting to watch if it does happen.

“Yes, the rumor is circulating on the internet. It seems implausible, since it would raise a question about Obama’s judgement that the MSM couldn’t plaster over with lies and obfuscation.”

I agree. At this point it could very well do more harm than good for Obama. Then again, having that airhead Biden say: “Hillary would have been a better choice than me” certainly doesn’t make The Messiah look too good either.
