February 24, 2014

I had the belief if one supported his or her political party the reward would be that the party would support the candidate. Let us consider the vice president....

John, to even imagine a buffoon like the Vice President running this country is very scary indeed.

You're thinking of the Republican Party...where the next-person-in-line is given preferential-treatment...and, we Dems DO appreciate their efforts!!!

Sorry Shaman, Biden definitely has Bush beat, and any other president and vice president for that matter. One just needs to Google Bidenisms. I could go all day with the stupid remarks this man has said.

I'll share one more just for fun,

"When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened." –Joe Biden, apparently unaware that FDR wasn't president when the stock market crashed in 1929 and that only experimental TV sets were in use at that time, interview with Katie Couric, Sept. 22, 2008.

"All his political career he followed this belief. As we approach the presidential election in three years, will the party support our vice president if he wished to run for the presidency?"

What do we have here, some sort of monarchy, where the next in line, gets the job rather than the choice of the people? I have to agree with Sham on this one (must be really cold in he11 right now), the Republican party has been doing that for years, and we see how well that's worked out. Of course, neither party really let's the people choose the candidate, but at least the Democrats make a show of it.

He hasn't even declared his intention to run. It is a little premature to ask the question.

The party will support whomever the citizens select to run.

Yeah Biden is a buffoon. The Republicans don't have anything to crow about they have their buffoons too.

No doubt, I personally don't think Biden will even throw in his hat because he knows he doesn't have a chance against Hillary. This quote pretty much sums that up:

"Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president of the United States of America. Quite frankly, it might have been a better pick than me." -Joe Biden, speaking at a town hall meeting in Nashua, New Hampshire, Sept. 10, 2008

"Look, John's last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number-one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs." --Joe Biden, Athens, Ohio, Oct. 15, 2008

This one should have destroyed Biden, like "Macaca" did to George Allen.

But, there is no media bias.

"You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.... I'm not joking." --Joe Biden, in a private remark to an Indian-American man caught on C-SPAN, June, 2006

Who does the Republicans have? Bridgegate Christie, Walker who is unethical, Cruz who is nothing but a showboat and panderer, Santorum who thinks he is the next in line, or are they going to give Romney another shot.

All of this is nothing but speculation, no one from the left or right has announce they are running. They vying for it by testing the waters and the public reaction to them. The base of the Republican party is not going to like a Democratic candidate. The base of the Democratic party is not going to like a Republican candidate.

Biden will never be President. The scariest part is, for all his gaffes, he is probably the most blatantly honest of them all.

Hillary is next in line. The DNC owes her the nomination after being cuckold by her husband and humiliated by Obama.

But Shaman says we are the party of "next in line".

Obviously there is not even a hint of "Hate" coming from the right. You sir should remember that you are living in the biggest most fragile glass house on the planet.(IMO) To call you what you called her, frankly would be an insult to the animal.-Scott

P.S.-Your obvious fear of her is glaring.

Well the right was calling Hillary those names before Sarah ran for office. The right can dish it out but they sure can take it. The never have been able to. They love to call people names but hate it when they are called it back.
