Biden: I May Run in 2016
Pundit Press ^ | 5/23/11 | Aurelius

Posted on 05/23/2011 7:46:13 AM PDT by therightliveswithus

Vice President Joe Biden is looking to the future. And not the 2012 election next year, but to 2016 where he says not to rule him out.

Talking to supporters at a dinner on May 19, Biden abruptly started talking about the 2016 election. According to a person there, it was odd "given he volunteered that without prompting...and given the audience."

The dinner had a "wide-ranging conversation" for "major Democratic Party donors." Biden told the group that he "hadn't made up his mind, and cited both political conditions and his own health as relevant factors."

By 2016, Mr. Biden will be 74 years old. John McCain, who was attacked by Democrats and candidate Obama for being too "old," was 72 when he ran for President in 2008.

Initial reaction to this news ranges from "weird" to "disturbing." Either way, Biden is now one of several Democrats eying the 2016 race, including New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Virginia Senator Mark Warner.

Because being with a clean, mainstream, articulate African-American man rubs off on sodden drunk, ignorant men of ruddy complexions?

“People think I’m joking when I say it, but no, I don’t know why they think I’m joking but I may run seriously no joke. I could run... not as fast as the president though... did you know black people, or afro-americans I guess we’re calling them now have an extra bone or tendon or something in their leg muscle? It’s true an extra tendon that makes them just god-darned faster than, you know, normal folk. Damndest thing, great for them too! That’s terrific! What was I saying? Oh, yeah, I’m going to run slow for the presidency maybe if I want to...”

Progressives have no problem with Mr. Biden, but
Sarah Palen is a moron according to them.

Absolutely amazing.

 Oh, that baby blue tie.

 

It looks good on ol' Slow Joe. And it's one of his favorites. He likes wearing it. Especially when he fondles state troopers....

“I may run in 2016”

Yes. He will run on his great intelligence, wisdom,
enlightened outlook, love for humanity, brilliant foreign policy record, stellar record in the U.S. Senate,
down-to-earth man-of-the-people stance and general
brilliance.

(And, don’t forget, Sara Palin is a moron.)

/sarcasm/

IMHO

What about Pee Wee Herman? In THAT field, I think Pee Wee has a chance.

That would be hilarious. The smackdown would look like a schoolyard beating.

Why not? We need all the comic relief we can get. And it’s almost as if God created Joe expressly to provide it.

When I get older, losing my plugs,

Many years from now,

Will you still need me, will you still feed me,

When I'm seventy-four?
