    Man, im going to miss watching Biden on the campaign trail, the guy is comedy gold...... :D

    He has become such a liability to Obama that they can only send him to states they lead by 10.


    The Obama campaign will send Joe Biden to three safe blue states next week, a move indicating the campaign may fear the effect of the vice president's increasingly frequent gaffes.

    Last week, in the critical swing state of Virgina, whose 13 electoral votes President Barack Obama must secure to win reelection, Biden was a headline-making machine.

    In Danville, a city with a past history of racial strife, Biden told a half-black audience that Republicans were “gonna put y’all back in chains.” He also forgot that he was in Virginia, rejoicing, "We can win North Caolina again." He mocked a sign-language interpreter, forgot what century he was in.

    A local bakery refused to serve Biden because the owner was upset with Obama’s “You didn’t build that” comments. He was denounced by former Virginia Gov. Doug Wilder. His staffers were accused of trying to manipulate pool reports, and even the friendly mainstream media turned on him. As the week ended, speculation intensified about whether Obama considered replacing him with Hillary Clinton.

    On Tuesday, Biden will travel to Minnesota. Obama leads by an average of 10.5 points, according to the Real Clear Politics (RCP) average of polls.

    On Wednesday, Biden will travel to Michigan, where Obama leads by an average of 7.7 points in the RCP average.
    And on Friday, Biden will travel to New York, where Obama leads by 25.5 points in the RCP average.

    That's OK. Everyone will still see it in the news and in videos. Except for the idots that only watch the liberal press.

    Sounds like Hillary already turned Obama down when asked to replace Biden, so the liberals are stuck with Grandpa Joe......I cant embed the video, but here is a link


    During Thursday night’s “The Kudlow Report” on CNBC, “The Amateur” author Ed Klein said that according to sources within the Clinton camp, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was approached about the possibility of beingPresident Barack Obama’s running mate in November. And, Klein said, she turned it down.

    Pundits and talking heads have discussed in recent weeks the possibility of Vice President Joe Biden being replaced on the Democratic presidential ticket, particularly with news of his brief hiatus from the spotlight this weekend.

    “Up until just a couple of weeks ago the White House was putting out feelers to see if Hillary would accept the vice-presidential nod and replace Joe Biden,” Klein said. “Bill Clinton was, I’m told, urging his wife to accept the number two slot. He saw this as a great launching pad for her for running in 2016.”

    “But then Hillary had lunch in the White House a couple of weeks ago with Valerie Jarrett — Michelle [Obama]’s best friend, senior adviser to both the first lady and the president … and she told Valerie that she would not accept the vice president’s spot. The lunch was ostensibly about other matters, but it came up. … Hillary felt burned out after four years as Secretary of State. But I’m told there were more important reasons for her not accepting.”

    Those reasons, Klein explained, involve the former first lady being put in positions that would make her vulnerable if she should decide to run for president four years from now.

    “She felt that if she were on the ticket with Obama and he lost, she would be tarred as a loser when she tried to run in 2016,” Klein said. “On the other hand, if she was on the ticket and he won, and he continued his far left-wing socialistic policies, she’d have to defend those policies when she ran in 2016.”

    Klein said the talks never involved President Obama out of fear that if Clinton were to turn him down, her husband former President Bill Clinton would leak it out and embarrass Obama. Klein also said the current first lady was aware of the Jarrett-Clinton discussion. Although Hillary Clinton declined, he added, the door isn’t completely shut on her running as the number two.

    Has Obama asked Ronald McDonald to replace Joe yet? Nancy Pelosi would be another great pick. So would the Blago. He could set up a V.P. Office right in the prison for speeches and press releases.

    Someone should tell Joe that bald drunk and stupid is no way to go through life.

    There's no way to get away from Biden, the only option is to stick him in the corner and hope he stays silent...... replacing him on the ticket would be humiliating for the DNC.

    Can you imagine having Biden for a fill in President????? It would be like some nightmarish episode of Family Guy.

    Remember when the President's 747 was flying around the Statue of Liberty and NYC and Obama was in the White House at the time?

    Here is a conversation Obama reportedly had with Biden over the telephone that day.
