Is Today the Day? Obama meets with Biden and Clinton in the Oval Office
The Weekly Standard ^ | August 16,2012 | DANIEL HALPER

Posted on 08/16/2012 6:28:42 AM PDT by Hojczyk

Perhaps further fueling speculation that Barack Obama may replace Joe Biden on the Democratic presidential ticket with, say, Hillary Clinton, take a look at part of the president's schedule for today:

10:15AM THE PRESIDENT and THE VICE PRESIDENT receive the Presidential Daily Briefing

Oval Office

Closed Press

10:45AM THE PRESIDENT and THE VICE PRESIDENT meet with Secretary of State Clinton

Oval Office

Closed Press

12:30PM THE PRESIDENT and THE VICE PRESIDENT meet for lunch

Private Dining Room

Closed Press

Will President Obama deliver the bad news to Biden at 10:15? And, in the 10:45 meeting, arrange the handoff to Hillary?

If so, there's a nice condolence lunch with Biden to make him fell better set for 12:30.

Apparently, Hillary had prior knowledge of the switch. Here she is practicing getting her fool on.

Seems that Biden wants to spend more time with his family and his doctors are saying he has “insert heart wretching disease here”.

... and .... under the bus there goes the bidding for Biden... THE Democrate purge of idiots rolls on and will soon reach a populace near you.

Palin is way too naive to tell Hillary to go for VP, because I do not think that evil cousin of her thinks the same for her... why why why do we fail to see that giving pearls to swine PIAPS is a bad idea? Are we that intoxicated ourselves?

Such a change could stop Obama’s downward spirial...

but he needs to know there is a danger...remember the term “Arkancide.”

We'll know for sure that Obama has decided to replace Biden when he comes out and says he wants to make it perfectly clear that he's not going to replace Biden.

That's how you translate Obonics to English. You take whatever Obama says and turn it around 180 degrees.

If Biden goes, Holder breathes a deep sigh of relief knowing Soetoro can't fire him for at least a month.

I doubt it.

The local news radio station here in Orlando mentioned that the Obama/Biden lunch is a regularly-secheduled, weekly meeting.

I think this whole "dump Biden" thing is just Republican operators "sticking it" to team Obama. It's not meant to be taken seriously, it's just to annoy them and perhaps cause them to do something stupid (like respond to it).

If (and that's a big if) this were to happen....

look for birth related documents to show up very shortly.

With any of the clintoons, give them a whiff of blood and they'll go on the attack - and the hildabeast ain't interested in second banana - she did that for 8 years during the bent ones reign.

That's why I don't think even zero is stupid enough to let her get behind his back.

I don’t think its going to happen. I just don’t see why Hillary Clinton would want the job.

There is just no upside to hitching her wagon to Obama. She’d be better off running on her own in 2016 without being saddled quite so heavily with Obama’s crap record, and she wouldn’t take the really substantial risk of losing this year.

Actually, why would Evita want to buy into THAT trainwreck?

If she gets on the “O” ticket for 2012-it will certainly destroy any plan she has for a Presidency of her own after another 4 years of “O”.

NO Liberal is going to survive politically, after THAT!

Ha!! In any case-Sarah really, really ‘handled’ the “O” administration with her suggestion that Evita take Joe’s place.

It emphasizes the abjectly ridiculous and impossible position “O” has got himself into!!

I would also like to add that we shouldn’t be scared of a Obama/Clinton ticket. The media makes Hillary seem like she is the smartest woman in the world, but she’s not. This election is about the economy and Obama, not about the VP pick. I would also like to add that when Hilldog opens her mouth her favorbility goes down. Lastly, if she gets the number 2 spot, expect the convention to be ALL ABOUT the Clintons, and that is bad news for 0.

What if Romney wins and gets the country going again? What happens to Hillary in 2016? And then, there wouldn’t be a sure bet that she could win in 2020. Too many “what ifs” for the Democrats if they lose this race this year. The Democrats know the country is more conservative. The Democrats love government because that’s where the money is. Too many liberals are nearing the end of their life to miss out on four more years of looting the public treasury.

Tried to tell you all Palin was being a fool. Oh sure she’ll look good “predicting” this but she has handed Hilary a huge compliment to start off with.

Way to go helping the nation forget the Clintons are evil.

I doubt it. 0 has shown himself too arrogant to change his course on anything. I suspect they are meeting to discuss Syria. Biden is supposed to be the "Foreign policy brain" of the Administration.

And yes, that is not a typo, they really think Idiot Joe is a "genius" on Foreign Policy

As it is hope is nearly gone for Hillary. If she plans to run in 2016 she is going to have to spend the next three years under the continual care of Nancy Pelosi’s team of plastic surgeons.

If she latches on to Obama and loses she’s completely toast.

She would want the job because she would have pretty good intelligence that Barry ticked off and let down the wrong people and is not going to finish a 2d term in office

She would want the job because Bubba wants the job- he knows something

Hope all the hollowpoint bullet buying spread throughout the federal agencies is not to respond to an angry civil breakdown instigated by Holder’s people

Dont want to speculate further

As I've been saying for many years, I'm worried about VICE President Clinton.
Think of it:

• Two years and one day into her term the first slotter gets arkincided
• Under Article XXII, she can still run for two full terms as the incumbent
• The Glorious Hillary!™ Decade begins
• Hillary uses the Patriot Act and NDAA to their fullest extent, and beyond
• At the end of the Glorious Hillary!™ Decade there is a National Emergency "temporarily" delaying the elections
• Under the pressure of the National Emergency, the 1st, 2nd and 22nd amendments are repealed
• By the time the National Emergency is over all the 'improved' source code for the touch screen electronic balloting will be in place......

Just as an aside, with the Clinton's well known love of 'ethnics', Obama is very expendable, isn't he?

That's why I don't think even zero is stupid enough to let her get behind his back.

The Once will do whatever his masters tell him.

If Hillary joins the ticket and Biden is out, the Kenyan wins. For Romney to win he needs to get a substantial portion of the female vote. If Hillary is on the ticket he cannot get enough women to vote for him.

Yeah, sounds like a set up.

I remember that the birthers started out as democrates and that there was a group of pi-o’ed NOW types who had these Sinclair and other vote fraud stories to complain about, but they were suppressed... and this notwithstanding the strange meeting between Obama, Hillary and the DNC when they were at each other’s throats during the CHAOS debacle.

Truth is, Democrates are redistributionist believers and they do not take risks and plan ahead, however, this mindset means they never make a real business out of it, they just hoard it for themselves like animals. They never grow. IT is an accepted like decay despite “hope and change”, not realizing that it is their inherent hate and risk aversion that makes their socialist scheme a natural slow Titatnic disaster.

The ship is going down, the captain knows it or is still in denial. How many times did we see that, like in Italy of late.

The Clintons and the lapdog media have already rewritten history to make people believe that Bubba left office with a balanced budget and huge surplus

So forget any efforts to point out Hillary's incompetence in any endeavor she has headed on her own- even the role of wife

Don't bet the farm that plenty of democrats and “moderates” would pull the lever in a heartbeat for a 3rd term for Bill Clinton- which is what this ticket would represent

The only grim pleasure will be watching Moochelle Obama cast into irrelevancy and completely implode, and Valerie Jarrett pack her bags and head back to Chicago (if I was Hillary's husband, I'd make that a condition of Hillary accepting the role of co-president)
