Obama Has Plenty of Time to Drop Biden [22 Days, 3 Hours]
Weekly Standard ^ | 8/15/12 | Daniel Halper

Posted on 08/15/2012 2:20:09 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper

President Barack Obama has slightly more than 22 days to drop Vice Presidential Joe Biden from the 2012 Democratic presidential ticket, according to lawyers familiar with the party nominating process. That is, Democrats have until September 6 to formally nominate their presidential ticket which will then be qualified for the 50 state ballots.

Obamugabe might turn to Slick Willie's "wife". Anyone think he will humiliate himself in such a way?

His record as President demonstrates he is far too arrogant and narcissistic to change his course on anything.

He’s not going to drop Biden. Wouldn’t be surprised if Biden quits making public appearances though.

Hillary will get the last laugh if Obama asks her to be on the ticket and she tells him to pound sand.

I just loved Rudy comments the other day wondering if Old Joe had the mental capacity for office. This will sit in the back of the minds of people and whenever Joe says something stupid, they will wonder if Rudy might have something. The doubt will be subtle at first but it could grow.

No, he’ll stick with Biden. Because Biden makes him look intelligent. The same way the duo from Dumb and Dumber compliment each other.

No, really, he doesn’t. Not unless Joe takes sick and he has to.

The Palin-haters had their say on this on an earlier thread, but I’m thinking there’s no way the Fraud wants anyone smarter than him on the ticket, and there aren’t too many choices for people dumber than Obozo, so Biden fits the bill.

And Biden’s daily gaffes take attention away from Hussein’s.

It’s Evan Bayh....that they really want. So you might want to think about a Obama/Bayh ticket. Hillary is gone...no intention of sticking around after the end of the year. I suspect that she is onto the idea of him losing and building up her situation for a 2016 run for the Presidency.

I believe that the ONLY person obama could exchange for Joe would be Hillary. The thing is that Hill almost certainly has her sights set on 2016 - and being on this ticket with obama would likely ruin 2012 for her. Might have been a different matter if obama were still as popular as when elected, but as it is she can’t risk the Jimmy Carter effect that obama would leave on her.

If he tried to put anyone but Hillary in Joes place at this late date it would look terrible, and people would be so pissed if he didn’t run Hillary that he’d lose a huge number of supporters.

I half expect that Joe will be in some bizarre “accident” very soon, and that will free obama to pick a “not-Hillary” without looking like a tool. I wonder.......who other than Hillary though?

I have suspected all along that Joe has the goods on obama, and was smart enough to set up a bit of insurance to make sure he wasn’t bumped off......ahem, the ticket I mean.

Think Biden should hire a food taster; watch his back. Think too; the less said about this; the better. Sarah Palin’s input; particularly, not welcome either.

Part of the problem is, the Democrat bench is not only thin, but it is extremely shallow. Hitlery is about the only one around who would be an "improvement" on Plugs. She would get the Stupid Woman vote for sure, but then, so does 0zero! The media love Him and they love Her (sic!), so how can Hitlery being on the ticket improve it?

I think Sarah recommended the change to make it more of a poison pill than it already is. Any additional Stupid Women the ticket might pick up would be canceled out by defections of fraidy-cat men who when they see Hitlery in motion or hear her voice have visions of getting their gnutts cut off. The only reason Bill already hasn't had the operation is he still has full time SS protection and he is in her fetid corner so She still has a use for him.

I would be very surprised if Lil Barry dropped Dim Joe from the ticket.
Dim Joe is probably the cheapest and absolute best insurance policy Lil Barry ever had. Just the thought of Dim Joe in the Oval Office is a huge deterrent to both impeachment and assignation. Plus any physician working on Lil Barry would make damn sure he had the best of the best care.

Poor Joe.

They know he is getting ready to have a serious, debillitating medical problem.

They just haven’t determined exactly what form it will take.

Honestly I don’t know why they even picked him in the first place. He added nothing to the ticket and has been a total embarrassment as vice president.

As for Hillary, I understand why they didn’t take her. He probably would have broken William Henry Harrison’s record if he had chosen her.

No way Hillary.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Obama may be a far-left Communist-Socialist ideologue, but he is *not* suicidal. He would be assassinated quickly. I take the under side of the over/under bet of 01/21/13 in the dead pool because Hillary! would time it to be able to use the 10-year option in the 22nd Amendment.

The selection of Ryan shines a spotlight on the incompetence and sad bufoonery of the current VP.

OB looks bad whether he keeps him or dumps him.

If I were him, I would dump him now through some subterfuge and not wait until after the dem convention.

Obama picked Biden (and will keep him) for the same reason that Nixon kept Agnew on the 1972 ticket.

Nixon knew that Agnew was hated even worse than him. He thought Agnew was his insurance policy against impeachment. That’s why Agnew had to be removed from office first.

Biden is Obama’s firewall. Neither the Republicans or the Democrats will go after him as long as Biden is next in line. Over the last 3 years, I knew that Obama was untouchable. But, if Biden suddenly found his past catching up with him and was threatened by scandal, it would have been because Obama was next.

I hope that we don’t have to worry about it in 2013. But, if Obama cheats or Romney fumbles, Biden will be the canary in the coal mine.

For Obama to drop Biden, he would need to get approval from Valarie Jarret...his Consigliere...

She would see it as far too risky...

It would be interesting to see if the democratic convention has a say so...and throw a monkey wrench by placing a different name in for the VP nominee

Clinton won't take the VP slot. The polling shows that Obama has little chance of winning, so no Dem politician who wants to save their reputation will take it either. He'll have to reach out to a former Dem Senator... probably one who lost their seat in 2010 to the tea party.

That was just an attack from a different angle. All these are meant to undermine Biden’s credibility and to force Obama to defend Biden. Making the media cover Biden’s screw ups rather than hide will keep then on defense. The more they watch the more Biden will screw up.

If Obama does dump Biden, then he looks weak. If he does pick Clinton, then it makes Obama look like he took Palin’s advice and he is undermined even more.

Just wait for Bill Clinton to get into the game. I believe Clinton is waiting to kneecap Obama just to show him who is boss of the democrat party.

Please Hussien, don't drop Biden. He has already been dropped on his head enough. Plus, he is a walking gaffe machine that is fun to watch.

No question. But that's not why Biden will stay on the ticket.

What Biden said the other day was not a gaffe.

Biden's job is to say the things that Obama wants to say but could never get away with saying. And because of Biden's long record of saying mindless things, nobody even mentions it.

With Biden, Obama has the best of both worlds: the incendiary statement about Republicans wanting to put Blacks in chains gets out to the audience, and Obama can disavow it. Except that he didn't.

I finally realized what they are doing when Obama refused to condemn or even criticize what Biden said. It's because Obama told him to say it.

Since Sarah Palin suggested this, it would look lousy for him to be taking her advice so the Bamster will stick with Biden.

Who was the last President to change VPs during his administration via the election process? Was it Roosevelt? Roosevelt started with John Nance Garner then to Henry Wallace and lastly Harry Truman.

There were VP changes in others such as the Nixon Presidency but not at election time.
