Biden Hints at Presidential Run (NO WAY!!)
Yahoo News ^ | 1/22/2013 | Yahoo News

Posted on 01/22/2013 3:31:25 PM PST by Dallas59

Amid all the pomp and circumstance of inauguration weekend, Vice President Joe Biden showed a few of his 2016 cards as he mingled with some constituencies that would be key if he decides to run for president.

On Saturday, Biden attended the State Society of Iowa "First in the National Celebration" where he slipped up and referred to himself as the president instead of as the V.P.

"I'm proud to be president of the United States, but I am prouder to be…" Biden said as the crowd started to laugh and cheer. "I'm proud to be vice president of the United States but I am prouder to be Barack Obama, President Barack Obama's vice president."

Numb Nuts has tried this before, didn’t work out so well, he was polling just behind Spong Bob Square Pants.

Plugs has a habit of engaging mouth before brain, maybe because the mouth is larger.

Joe Biden is the nearest thing the Democrats have to a voice of moderation in their entire body.

Which means other Democrats will eat him alive, should he make such a daring move.

My prediction...

The two term limit will be removed so a president can run for more than two terms.

Can anyone say President Billy Bob!

Sadly, an electorate stupid enough to re-elect Obama is stupid enough to elect Biden. As Mr. Steyn has written, sometimes a society is just to stupid to survive. We’ve reached that point.

Don't be fooled, dear FRiends.

One suspects with confidence that this is...

Fake...fake...fake...fake...and, fake.

The next Dem candidate is likely Hillary (which is why the Benghazi inquiries are so important.)

Veep? Hmmm, my guess for a liberal women not afraid to show her feelings, but not smart enough to show Hillary up...hmmm...oh, I know.

Boehner!

I notice colin powell seems to be gearing up for a run.

Laughing at the people here who thought he would get my vote for anything...ever.

Pretty sure he'll be changing parties, but it doesn't matter either way.

Yep, there's no way the Dems are going to have Biden on the next general ballot.

I heard the audio clip several times; it was more laughs than applause. He’s a “Gaffe-A-Minute Machine”. Dumbass.

Why on earth would anyone think a Biden presidential run is ridiculous?

Obama was elected. Twice.

I have no faith in the American electorate. If he runs, he could easily win.

If Biden did run, who would he pick as “insurance” for VP?

The rats throw candidates like Biden, Sharpton, and Carol Mosely-Braun into the primary mix in order to attract media attention and make their real (designated) establishment cadidate look better by comparison. Biden will be there for the purpose of being somebody’s foil.

It was pretty much a given that Biden would try to run. A few months back I'd have said he didn't have any chance of winning. Now I'm not so sure.

The Democrats may have a generational problem. They have sombody like Cory Booker or Julian Castro to run in 2020, but the youngsters won't be ready in 2016. They could jump the gun, but voters may be tired of inexperienced presidents by then.

Hillary Clinton looks tired and unwell. She may not run. Janet Napolitano will run but only as a joke (for other people). A woman like Gregoire or Gillibrand could run in the primaries, but she'll really be running for vice president.

Eight years in power will have made the Democrats tired and complacent. Andrew Cuomo may run, but Biden's chances to get the nomination aren't bad. The way the Republicans have been, he may just win the whole thing.

If we don’t seal the borders AND stop Barry’s amnesty scheme, Rimshot Joe will have all of the low information voter votes he’ll need to get elected.

I think it's a great idea.

If the GOP can't beat him, then we can officially start a conservative third party with a clear conscience.

Are you kidding? I’d LOVE for Smilin Joe to run in a Democrat Primary! Might just take the ‘heat’ off the Republicans for a while. Joe wouldn’t have the race protection that Obama has. ;o)

As a plagiarist and serial liar, Biden would be a fine successor to BHO. They would not even have to engage new puppet masters.

That was then, but this is now. Presidential elections are now a thing of the past.

Our next president will be Emperor Obamugabe or whoever else Soros decides upon.

But she ain't got game. Her charisma number veers into negative territory. Plus, she just looks old and haggard. I would love to see Ol' Joe Biden make a run, just to suck the oxygen out of the room for a while.

"I'm proud to be president of the United States, but I am prouder to be…" Biden said as the crowd started to laugh and cheer. "I'm proud to be vice president of the United States but I am prouder to be Barack Obama"

Now I'm confused...

President Biden?

That would be like the film Idiocracy coming true. That film was supposed to be in the year 2506.

With Obama's re-election ANY thing is possible.
