Skip to comments.Joe Biden 'intoxicated' by 2016 run
Posted on 01/23/2013 11:59:10 AM PST by Servant of the Cross
Joe Biden summoned more than 200 Democratic insiders to the vice presidential residence Sunday night to chat about the 2012 triumph but many walked away convinced his rising 2016 ambitions were the real intent of the long, intimate night.
I took a look at who was there, said longtime New Hampshire state Sen. Lou DAllesandro, and said to myself, Theres no question hes thinking about the future.
Hes right. Biden, according to a number of advisers and Democrats who have spoken to him in recent months, wants to run, or at least be well positioned to run, if and when he decides to pull the trigger. Biden has expressed a clear sense of urgency, convinced the Democratic field will be defined quickly and that it might very well come down to a private chat with Hillary Clinton about who should finish what Barack Obama started.
Hes intoxicated by the idea, and its impossible not to be intoxicated by the idea, said a Democrat close to the White House. And the intoxication is hardly new. Officials working on the Obama-Biden campaign last year were struck by how the vice president always seemed to have one eye on a run, including aggressively courting the presidents donors. Obama aides at times had to actively steer Biden to places where he was needed like Pennsylvania because he kept asking to be deployed to Iowa, New Hampshire and other early states.

Joe Biden intoxicated....
Run Joe Run!
Haha . . . I too so hope he runs.
Surely even the cretins who voted Obama into office will not bother to show up at the polls on election day for Biden . . . although perhaps I shouldn’t underestimate the ignorance of the electorate given the last two Presidential cycles.
yes, Joe will no doubt be intoxicated before during and
after a 2016 run.
Team him up with a transgender cross dressing freak and he will be a shoe-in. This is not tong and cheek I’m dead serious We couldn’t beat barry, we don’t have a chance in hell
Absolutely no chance in the primaries. Partisan Dems appreciate Joe as a team player but are already nervous enough that he’s next in line to the presidency. A sober GOP candidate like Rubio, Ryan, Jindal, etc. would utterly destroy Clown Biden, and Dems know this.
You don't have to go home Mr. Vice-President, but you can't stay here.
I say so many stupid things ... cause I'm drunk ... and not just because I'm a moron!
Hillary is just intoxicated.
Also, ole “gaff a day Joe” is 70 and will turn 74 during the run up to the 2016 election. So, health will become a significant factor as he ages.
Hey, I'm runnin' for president in '16! Will you be in my parade?
Head Fake alert!
I'm more than a little confident in my suspicion that there are no plans for Slow Joe to do anything further after 2016.
The Dems would want us to focus on such a fool, however.
wouldnt it be sweet if Obama endorsed him and he beat Hilary in the primaries?
Yes, it's hysterical. He really thinks he's a 'storybook' too ... clean, bright and articulate! He's toast.
Almost as laughable as the chance of a foreign national with a fake birth certificate and a false SS card winning the presidency. Oh wait
Well, that and booze.
That’s what I am thinking. Even one of the mediocre candidates the GOP has a habit of running should be able to beat Biden. (note, I said SHOULD)Unless the GOP is touring halfway houses for their pick....
could WE get him nominated?
He’s knows he’s not black, right?
Someone needs to tell him he is NOT middle class (as he repeatedly told audiences last election).
Mooch-hell wants her turn and isn’t going to waste time with a Senate seat like her husband or Hillary.
I’m sure not laughing. The intelligence of the left along with the sock puppet media proves that ANYBODY can become pResident.
So I guess it’s not the Vodka he keeps in his drawer?
Geez. Obama wins election twice, now everyone thinks they can be president. I’ve got this illegal alien friend... I’m just thinking outside the box. What do you think?
Joe Biden is the Inspector Clouseau of American politics. Good for a laugh, but never to be taken seriously.
He is too old now and too stupid. I say go for it.
In order to run for office he'll need to be a woman and have a lot more hair.
That was a fairly common event at a very popular watering hole near the University of Delaware back in the day............
Joe meet Hillary. Hillary meet Joe. See ya later Joe.
Joe was running back and forth across the street with this MANIC smile on his face....leaving Jill alone on the walk, looking around constantly to see where her doofus husband was. She plodded grimly ahead without an escort till she reached the limosine, a protocol no-no in DC. In an event like this, you don't desert your wife....it's like leaving your girlfriend stranded alone in the middle of the Gym Jams dance floor.
As he ran back and forth from curb to curb like a yo-yo on speed, he was constantly pointing his thumb and index finger in the two-fingered gun position aiming at certain folks on the curb, mugging for the TV cameras and showing off like everybody in the crowd was a personal friend worthy of his fleshy finger aimed at them.
The same childish gun gesture, of course, that puts 6-year old kindergarten kids in school dentention for 6 months....or for one year if they yell "pow" when they point.
That whitey hatin’ wookie has no chance in hell.
People (Democrats) aren't backing Hillary in 2008/2016 because she's brilliant. They see it as an opportunity for another Bill/Hillary CO-presidency.
Obama could do the same run-around of the Constitution. With a sizable voting bloc giving him 97% support (and then lying about how great the inauguration ceremony was when questioned a week BEFORE it happened), skillz don't matter in this day and age.
he is a daily gaffe machine
He’s intoxicated again? Malarky./s
I hate to be so damn pessimistic, but I really don’t see a repub President in 2016 or even 2020. The last election proved that America loves Democrats and would hate to see a Republican in power. Jmo.
I forgot to add that that is the reason why an idiot like Biden or Hillary will win because the low info voters are the votes that matter now.
Any power hungry jerkwad can destroy america why not joe?
The sad thing is that I am absolutely confident that the GOP can nominate someone who would lose to him.
You mean the way that we thought that Paul Ryan would destroy Biden in the debate one-on-one? Biden was a class A jerk to be sure, but in all honesty he got away with bullying Ryan, and interrupting him, smirking & guffawing constantly.... and Ryan was reduced to standing there chastised and taking it without any smack down retort from him. Everyone knew that Biden was going to act that way, but apparently Ryan & his GOP prep team, failed to anticipate that and to have a strategy to instantly smack down Biden AND the moderator when that occurred multiple downs without any rebuttal.
The 3 names you mentioned.... Ryan, Rubio, Jindal... either Biden OR Hillary will destroy these guys by acting like bullies & assholes with constant shilling from their media partisan hacks, and these 3 polite, nice Repubs would be destroyed in a political street fight. Our guys, whoever they may be, will need to fight harder & meaner than they have ever done before. It comes naturally for the socialist RAT bastard demoRATs.
Also because of the shifting demographics, illegal aliens being given the right to vote, photo ID laws are still being struck down, the constant personal attacks against Repubs by the media, and the cowardice of Boehner & McConnell & GOPers in House & Senate, I see Repubs losing the House big time in 2014, losing more Senate seats as well, and getting trounced by whoever is on the Dem ticket for president in 2016.
Of course by that time, we may no longer have a nation anyway. I am all for secession of 14-18 Southern & Western states, and would willing to move in a heartbeat from MN to join any seceding states.
“...but I really dont see a repub President in 2016 or even 2020. The last election proved that America loves Democrats and would hate to see a Republican in power.”
Same here. We have reached the point where people will vote solely on how much free stuff they can get from the government. We have reached a point where the media almost actively campaigns on behalf of a candidate and that candidate’s poilitical party.
Was it Dinesh D’Souza who said that the 2012 Presidential election was the last exit ramp for this nation? Folks, we have passed the last exit ramp.
