Dick Durbin, Barack Obama Get Prime-Time Speaking Slots, But Not Joseph Biden
Roll Call ^ | 9-6-12 | Shira Toeplitz

Posted on 09/06/2012 3:22:28 PM PDT by STARWISE

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) will introduce President Barack Obama during prime time this evening at the final night of the Democratic National Convention.

Vice President Joseph Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, will address delegates at the Time Warner Cable Arena during the 9 p.m. hour, convention organizers announced. And no one is more disappointed about Biden’s speaking slot than Republicans, who have taken to Twitter to campaign for the gaffe-prone vice president to speak during the nationally televised 10 p.m. hour instead.

CBS and ABC news will air the DNC’s program only during the 10 p.m. hour, according to MarketWatch. NBC will air a full two hours tonight because it showed the NFL season opening game last night.

Biden made for a frequent punching bag at last week’s GOP convention in Tampa. At the podium, several speakers joked about the former Senator’s propensity for verbal gaffes.

Romney’s running mate, House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), did get a prime time address last week at the Republican National Convention.

The DNC may be idiots, but they're not stupid.

They still are stupid, they can’t avoid Obama, but Durbin is a major league leftist embarrassment. They should have finished with a Clinton/ Obama night.

Biden’s still trying to figure out the correct correspondence between buttons and button holes on his jacket (per photo of him getting off the plane with the buttons 1 off).

At least the RATS let Biden talk. If he is his usual self, he will be prime time news for 3-4 days. That is not a positive.

Yes. . .no way; Obama 'needed' authentic 'Leadership' in VP slot; only someone who could only be grateful to 'just be there'. All so typical of Lefty Appointments. (If they don't have a 'fool'; they need to watch their back 'harder'. A fool or someone who 'otherwise' would be shuffling cards on the street.)

Saw pic of Biden and wife Jill at DNC. Both looked like they had just had a 'root canal' - sans anesthetic. But given; Biden's lectures/pronouncements; had no sympathy for either.

Obama has none either; but he needs the joker card; the court jester; save when Biden makes him part of the joke; of course.

If Obama survives; doubt Biden will; per next 'four'. Then of course; we will not be the 'survivor class' either.

Of course; Obama planning of more than 'four'; should he steal this one. A thief is just that. Obama will not settle for less that what his colossal by it's psychopathic; mega-narcissism can contain.

Dick Durbin must be speaking because he can rally the Illinois faithful. Obamugabe must be worried about losing that state. ;-)

Love that. Would like to see the 'empty suit'/in the empty chair.

Interesting; since 'turning the table' - or 'chair' as case may be; Obama, Inc. has moved on; from criticising Clint. Subject dropped. Obama hates to be the butt of a joke; to be ridiculed. His hubris does not allow such. Think they saw this taking on a 'life' they could not handle.

Repubs miss so many opportunities to do more; to reveal Obama the dangerous fool that he is. Fool and worse, that is.

The muzzling of Joe Biden and the break of tradition, putting Clinton in Biden’s place, tells us just how much the Obama campaign is concerned.

Hehehe ...

“The criticism has stuck. When the Pew Research Center/Washington Post poll asked voters for their one-word impression of Biden, more people use negative than positive words to describe him. Many of the terms disparage Biden’s competence and performance, with “idiot,” ‘’incompetent” and “clown” among the terms used most frequently.”

http://news.yahoo.com/biden-obamas-case-working-class-065010501—election.html

I bet he’s bristling ... and it might have been a decision made in the last couple of days, as stupidly disorganized and incompetent as this crew has been this week. Nevertheless, he’s a total buffoon who’s risen ridiculously far beyond his faculties and all because a total incompetent, treasonous radical scraped by to be potus.

I am beginning to think that some dems like Hillary, Gore and the other (who announced not going to the convention a month ago), are sensing political disaster and are avoiding the convention and things related to “the chair” .

The internals must be awful and the support eroding daily. “The chair” must be made of political Kryptonite.

They wouldn’t let him speak at all if they thought they could come up with a good excuse. They know he won’t stay on script. His mouth moves long after his brains stops sending signals.

And Dick Durbin looks like a duck.
