Posted on 05/24/2012 2:46:36 AM PDT by Jacquerie
There is growing talk that Vice President Biden will be booted off the ticket by President Obama. But dumping Biden begs an urgent question: Where to dump him?
Just dropping him in Delaware to roost and reminisce is an indignity that would redound politically against the president, who would seem harsh and ungrateful.
Obama could try to convince one of the two septuagenarian liberals on the Court to remove themselves after the spring term ends next month. Or, he could assure Biden of an eventual appointment and announce that Biden will not run for reelection because Obama would have to appoint a vice president after Biden resigns to go on the Court, and vice presidents should be elected.

Supreme Court? Now that is a scary thought for that imbecile.
Drop him into the Supreme Court? Well, it would give Plugs the American government trifecta: Dumbest Man to serve in all three branches.
Ruth Buzzie Ginsberg announces her retirement. Hold a quickie proforma Senate hearing the next week and send it to the floor of the Senate the next day. Our Constitution and traditions mean nothing to these people. There is no such thing as an impossible outrage.
Dumbest Man to serve in all three branches.
Biden IS indignity personified.
JUST drop him off and let him roost ... one of American's chickens.
If the Democrats were any smarter than Biden they would him and Obama.
They could send Obama to wherever his offshore accounts are and Biden could be a weekly guest on SNL. They could use some real comedy.

FOR THE MAJORITY: Chief Justice Roberts delivered the opinion of the Court. Section 1983 provides a joint and inseverable cause of action against state actors who violate an individual's rights under federal law. 42 U. S. C. §1983. At common law, those who carried out the work of government enjoyed various protections from liability when doing so, in order to allow them to serve the government without undue fear of personal exposure. Our decisions have looked to these common law protections in affording either absolute or qualified immunity to individuals sued under §1983. The question in this case is whether an individual hired by the government to do its work is prohibited from seeking such immunity, solely because he works for the government on something other than a permanent or full-time basis.
FOR THE MINORITY: Justice Scalia delivered the opinion of the dissent: This case does not show that a private individual may assert qualified immunity only when working in close coordination with government employees. For example, Richardson's suggestion that immunity is also appropriate for individuals "serving as an adjunct to government in an essential governmental activity," 521 U. S., at 413, would seem to encompass modern-day special prosecutors and comparable individuals hired for their independence. There may yet be other circumstances in which immunity is warranted for private actors. The point is simply that such cases should be decided as they arise, as is our longstanding practice in the field of immunity law.
FOR THE HANDICAPPED: Justice Biden delivered this commentary: I like shiny things. Birds are cute. Did you ever have a kitten? Kittens play pretty rough. Have you ever gone fishing with a little stick, a string and a worm? It's fun. I like sweaters. Mom said I shouldn't cuss so much. This law stuff is fun.
As a Delawarian, I have only 2 things to say
1. Not so funny now is it Arkansas?
2. He can’t come back- tom Carper has assumed his role as Lead Buffoon of the state.
From 10,000 feet should do the trick.
The fact this moron has held office for so long says much about the folks in Delaware. Not much positive, but much.

Which is why we should never have chosen a liberal for the Republican candidate. If this were ever to happen, we would lose big. People seem to love the Clintons and people seem to not like the big fat liberal Romney...can’t say I blame them for that. It is not too late to dump Romney.
It seems to me, that if Democrats don’t want this to bite them in the future, they will give Biden an ambassadorship, not a Supreme Court appointment.
There isn’t any pending rulings that I’m aware of, so it would be a waste of the next 6 months.
Secondly, if Romney gets elected and does a decent job, there are three justices that might be retiring within the next 8 years that Romney could appoint, which would put a Republican lock on it for the next thirty years.
After seeing what Romney appointed in Mass, I don’t have a lot of faith in his appointments.
IMO, this next election is ALL about who gets appointed to the SCOTUS.
If the zer0 wins, you can kiss America good-bye, forever.
At least we can HOPE that Romney would be forced to select someone NOT a Communist/Marxist/Socialist or an openly gay/lesbian.
We have no reason to think he would not do the same as Prez.
Never underestimate the desire of fascists like Obama to maintain a grip on power.
From today’s Daily Caller:
During the Internet broadcast of the Fox News Channels Special Report Online Wednesday, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer told viewers why the odds of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton replacing Vice President Joe Biden on the Democrats 2012 presidential ticket are very low.
Id say that the Indianapolis Colts have a better chance of winning the Super Bowl, Krauthammer said. And I have only one reason for saying that, and that is Obamas I say this not as a clinician narcissism.
Obama, I think, can never bring himself to do something very large, like this, which would show that he needs the Clintons, particularly Hillary, to win.
I just think for Obama to show himself as being weak and needing this to win is more than he can ever muster, Krauthammer added. So I think the odds are low. I could be wrong rarely, but its happened.
