Speculation swirls that Obama will dump Biden from the ticket in 2012 (Andrew "Cuomosexual" instead)
The Daily Caller ^ | July 4, 2011 | Alex Pappas

Could President Obama dump Joe Biden from the Democratic ticket in 2012?

New York Post columnist Fred Dicker says yes, quoting prominent Democrat and Republicans speculating that the president would replace Biden with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

“I don’t think there’s any doubt Obama is going to pick him as his running mate,” Republican William Powers told Dicker. “The president is in trouble and Biden doesn’t bring anything to his ticket.”

The report also said former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown has speculated that Biden would replace Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State.

Cuomo is said to be eyeing his own run for president in 2016. But Biden may not be thrilled about the prospect of Obama elevating Cuomo, especially since the V.P. reportedly floated the idea with Democratic donors of running for president himself in 2016 too.

If Cuomo gets a slot on the ticket, maybe Obama can take New York in 2012!!

Of course, NY is a solid blue state, so that's not saying much.

I think this whole bit is a line of baloney and the point is “gay pandering” and nothing more.

Anyone who has spent more than 10 minutes listening to Cuomo speak will tell you that as an oroator, a campaigner, he is far more annoying then even Biden.

Cuomo wants OUT of NY...his so-alled budget fixes haven't done anything..the state is about to implode in the next year or so..and there ain't gonna be any $$$ coming from DC to bail him out..

I don’t think Bambi would want to have anyone for VP who could overshadow him. That’s one of the reasons Biden was chosen the first time around.

Obama is not very smart and not very articulate, whereas Cuomo, like him or not, is both. Obama can’t take the risk of being upstaged, so I think he’ll either go with Biden again or he’ll find some other idiot like him.

So this “hint” that he might chose Cuomo probably is just a bit of gay pandering, as you suggest.

The only way I see Hillary actually leaving would be to challenge Obama.

Cuomo brings nothing and i mean nothing to a ticket for Obama. He’s not from a swing state, nor is he in no way in anyway a bonus...nada, nothing.

This kind of talk this early in the campaign is just that... pandering. The thing to watch is if Obama ever actually does it (select Cuomo). If he does it means that he’s in real trouble with his base and he’s just trying to mitigate what would otherwise be a huge defeat. Cuomo, like his father, is a loser.

I just jumped on this post so I don’t know if anyone has posited the idea that Joe B will take the Sec. State jobs to make room for Cuomo. He’s always wanted it and Hill is gone.

Joe B brought what to the ticket? Cuomo is a governor, young and he can move Joe to State without ruffling any feathers.

Biden would replace Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. Cuomo is said to be eyeing.............................. WHAT? Coumo is going to “quit” his job as Governor? He’ll be a quitter, like the former Governor of Alaska. That can’t happen, the Lib’s will scream.(Of course not, the double standard rule would apply.) Biden as Sect’y of State? That Boob will certainly mess up, I can’t believe the Genius is even thinking about that. 4 more years of being led by a chicken without a head is too much to even consider.

Remember why he picked Biden....Because he knew more about foreign policy. So now he's thinking Cuomo who knows NOTHING about foreign policy.

Hell, he doesn't even need a VP or a congress for that matter...What dictator does??

U.S. Department of Education to host LGBT youth summit Monday and Tuesday in Washington, D.C.
U.S. Secretary of Education (official site) | June 06, 2011 (date of event) | Official press release
FR Posted on Sunday, June 05, 2011 by Salman

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will give remarks at the Department’s first-ever Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) youth summit at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, June 7, at the Washington Court Hotel in Washington, D.C.

The two-day summit, “Creating and Maintaining Safe and Supportive Environments for LGBT Youth,” will take place Monday-Tuesday, June 6-7.

Duncan will highlight the Obama administration’s commitment to ensuring equal access to education for LGBT students as it does for all students. He also will discuss the Department’s Office for Civil Rights recently released guidance on the protection against harassment in an education setting based on gender, which includes gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, and transgender individuals.

The guidance, which was sent to schools, colleges and universities in a “Dear Colleague” letter, explains educators’ legal obligations to protect students from harassment based on racial and national origin, gender and disability.Read more at wnd.com

“O” is doing SO badly he wants to ‘reinvent’ himself for the next election. Part of that process will be to hire a new fart catcher.

The only thing worse than Biden as VP would be Biden as Sec. of State

I do think Obambi will replce him but I think it will be with HilLIARy, after Palin/Bachman ticket forms

It is the only ticket that gives him a chance against the all-female Republican ticket

And the crypto-commie Wallace was, thank God, replaced by Harry Truman in ‘44. Otherwise we would have had a Marxist president in the ‘40’s. As things played out, Zero has the distinction of being the first Marxist president of the USA.

Obama can’t take the risk of being upstaged

Not after the last time when he called SLick in for some help and ol Clinton just took right over..

Man, what an embarrassing moment for the Office of the Presidency.

Finally, you are on to something!

Get ready for a Hillary Clinton VP spot and perhaps, Joe Biden Sec. of State. (Biden anywhere in Obama’s future is a stretch though)

That ticket would ignite the Democrats like no other and give Hillary a sure shot at 2016.

And just when you were ready to crown your candidate, something like this comes along.

If you think that Hillary as VP would fire up the Democrats, I’m guessing the years 2007 and 2008 have been deleted from your memory bank. Besides, why would Mr. Obama place Hillary anywhere where an “accident” would give her her lifelong dream? I doubt that Michelle and Valerie would sign off on that.
