Joe Biden says there's 'no obvious reason why I shouldn't run' for President
Mail Online ^ | 7 February 2014 | Meghan Keneally

Posted on 02/07/2014 6:16:08 PM PST by Windflier

Vice President Joe Biden has now said that there is no reason for him not to run for president except for the fact that he likes driving his own car.

'There may be reasons why I don't run, but there's no obvious reason for me why I think I should not run,' Biden told CNN.

Biden, who is 71 and will be 73 at the time of the next election, previously said that he and his wife, Dr Jill Biden, had not had a formal conversation about 2016 and this time he took a different tact in answering the same question.

He said that his best bet on a deadline for the decision would be that he will have a verdict by 'realistically, a year this summer' which would give him just over a year to launch a formal campaign.

'Doesn't mean I'm the only guy who can do it, but no one else I think can, and I think I can then I'll run. If I don't I won't.'

Sure, Joe. There’s no obvious reason. Aside from the fact you’re a blithering idiot.

He is right. Obama’s election and re-election proves that the US electorate has a great tolerance for idiots as president.

I guess the fact that Obama chose you as ‘life insurance’ wasn’t so obvious.

This is ol’ Joe setting up Hillary for the ‘touch’; that multimillion dollar extortion to stay out of the way and not force her to spend millions more in a primary war.

Ol’ Joe is just some dumb; not plumb dumb...

He knew they would suffer under him rather than let a complete idiot take the reins. He chose Joe for a reason.

I don't think Arkancide will be a problem here because I do not think Hillary is going to run. I also think that if Biden runs, he wins by the same margin G.H.W. Bush beat Dukakis and for the same reason. Bush was supposed to be Reagan's third term and Biden will be Obama’s third.
While You may disagree, I think you would be vastly overestimating the intelligence of American voters AND giving way too much credit the Republican party.

"'There may be reasons why I don't run, but there's no obvious reason for me why I think I should not run,' Biden told CNN."

It depends on whether george soros can afford the army of election lawyers it will require to turn lead into gold (or maybe even tin).

He likes to shift da gears. That’s why they call him “Shifty”.

After seeing Obama get elected for a second term, I have learned not to underestimate the stupidity of the American public or the Republican Party. You may be right.

I do not think Hillary is going to run.

I don't either. Not with Benghazi hanging around her neck.

Hillary's criminal conduct in that atrocity ended her political career and aspirations, no matter how bad libs (and paranoid masochistic Freepers) want her to run.
