Rumblings about Biden’s “personal issues” requiring more of his attention
Rumblings | 9.04.08 | rumblings

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.

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.

Bigger prob with Biden is all the nice stuff he’s been saying about John McCain. Probably not endearing him to the angry left.

But what about the vetting process? How can it be if the hOlyman was so thorough and the vetting process so complete? What will the press say?

I have been around Free Republic way to long to question inside sources, because they usually turn out to be right on!

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But a Obama/Hillery presidency would permanently destroy the dims.

(Getting the blood off the walls in the WH would be hard though.)

If Nobama does throw Biden under the bus, that will be the end of him. The public (in fly over country) will view it as pandering AND will instill doubt in everyone's mind about his ability to lead, fill his cabinet, etc. He will be viewed as a total flake.
If Biden has "personal issues" that must be resolved and those issues come out, Nobama is sunk. If Nobama pulls the bait and switch, he's sunk.

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.

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.
