Skip to comments.Rumblings about Biden’s “personal issues” requiring more of his attention
Posted on 09/04/2008 7:05:51 AM PDT by rface
I am starting to hear rumblings that Biden has personal issues that have to be dealt with. There is no word on what these issues might be but it might require more attention than he can now give to these issues
People familiar with this situation are beginning to speculate that Joe Biden might withdraw from the Democratic ticket as early as the middle of next week.
Hillary insiders have indicated that Hillary is available to step into the vacant slot for the good of the party. There are trial balloons already being floated to party officials suggesting possible scenarios on how this might happen without embarrassing Barak Obama, but it is too early to tell what kind of effect a Obama / Hillary ticket might have on the base of the Democratic Party. Very early indications are that a Obama / Hillary ticket would be well received
Look in the coming days
. Possibly Friday evening
. For serious questions about Bidens ability to serve as VP.
Wow, that would be fun to see Clinton and Palin square off, what a contrast!
Obamma has no idea what he is doing, and, if true, this will prove it.
Biden has already started to play defense on this issue by declaring that Palin’s family is off-limits. He recognizes that he may fall into a trap here and he wants to insulate himself, I believe.
I’ve said that this exact scenario would play out.
And the McGovern similarities just keep coming. But seriously, this is quite doubtful.
This is no surprise at all since the announcement of Palin last week....that’s why the Intrade Palin listing yesterday was disinformation. Biden didn’t look good this morning for whatever reason. Hill is coming back, but I hope I’m wrong.
Is there anything to this or is it blogosphere excrement?
Rumblings? Are you sure it is not your stomach?
Didn’t you post another vanity earlier this week with no link or substance? Forgive me if I’m wrong. But there’s a lot of that going on around here lately.
It’s not that I doubt Biden has issues. I just think we’re better off with definitive sources.
I wonder if this was pre-planned all along. The good ‘ol “Bait-and-Switch” ... I wouldn’t put it past them. Cheat, Trick, Steal, and Lie are all part-and-parcel of their tactics.
Ha! Too late. After last night it’s just way too late.
True,true and this could be about the issue about the dealings of his son.
Bigger prob with Biden is all the nice stuff he’s been saying about John McCain. Probably not endearing him to the angry left.
I’ve heard he may drop for “health reasons”. It seems he needs a vagina.
BREAKING: OBAMA TO DUMP BIDEN
Wow, like we didn't see this one coming.
Without divulging your sources, is there any hint you could tell us on from where you are hearing this? ie... are you in the media industry, or from your own local party, etc. If you don't want to I understand, but I would love just a little hint.
No, Jesse Jackson’s stomach. He went to the hospital last night with stomach pains. Hmmm, I wonder why? I’m sure the Governor’s speech caused many stomach pains on the left.
If this goes over, it will not be well received by the general public. Some people said McCain’s move for VP looked cynical. This would look exponentially more cynical.
Ok, where have you been hearing this stuff?
I suspect Biden tips the bottle a bit too much but that can be delt with.
No way would Hillary accept.
She will let McCain win and then take him on in ‘12.
With Hillary’s negatives, McCain can start picking out drapes.
If Obama takes Hillary as VP he should....
1. Hire a food taster he knows he can trust.
2. Hire someone to start his limo for him daily.
3. AVOID FORT MARCY PARK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m voting pub.
But a Obama/Hillery presidency would permanently destroy the dims.
(Getting the blood off the walls in the WH would be hard though.)
I said this same thing three days agao on another blog.
He will be dropped for a “real” reason and Hitlery will be picked up.
Race over, start hiding your guns and ammo.
Biden thrown under the bus?
This is BS.
And Hillary wouldn’t get on this “Hindenberg” at this point, anyway.
Another Senator. Another lawyer. Another beltway fatcat. Another member of the entitled political elite. Ho-hum.
The latter I expect ...
Geez. All three of his kids have been arrested and charged over time. That’s change you can believe in!
Is this the bombshell you were talking about PJ?
I think once Biden’s been nominated it’s pretty set in stone. Not sure how they’d replace him.
Although the Dims did it with the Torreceli saga.
Just you wait,’enry ‘iggins, just you wait.... said Audry Hepburn to Rex Harrison.. Palin for President 2012, and Hillary is dead in the water with NO AMMO.
Obama chooses Hillary to replace Biden
Obama is a gazelle and Hillary is a lioness.
Psychologists call this “projection”.............
Unsourced BS rumors
will not happen
Obama is a gazelle? with those ears?.....
Sop you have to think the dems are not too happy with what Biden has brought or not brought to the ticket. Which is no votes.
Are any freeper’s “rumblings” news?
He recognizes that he may fall into a trap here and he wants to insulate himself, I believe...
...actually, one thing Palin’s speech did last night was to remove the gloves from her opponents, when it comes to confrontation time...by throwing red meat to the delegates, she opens the door for attacks against her, and Biden is a master at smearing...he’s simply lowering expectations for himself so he can gain by coming at her...I think Palin would have done better without the insults; it’s one thing to toss out zingers when you’re with your crowd, but another when you’re in neutral or even hostile territoryand your gender is no longer a defense...
Buyer’s remorse. The personal issue is that the Reps have nominated Palin. It does appear that Biden has a drinking problem, but that shouldn’t matter since he is a Dem.
Well, say no more! I'm certainly convinced... of something. I think.
