White House: Obama not propping up Joe Biden
Washington Examiner ^ | 1/8/14 | Brian Hughes

Posted on 01/08/2014 1:18:40 PM PST by Nachum

The White House, in damage control after a blistering memoir by former Defense Secretary Robert Gates went public, insisted that a full slate of events between President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden was not meant to prop up Biden. In a rare move, the White House opened up the weekly lunch between Obama and Biden to photographers Wednesday, prompting speculation that the administration was trying to gloss over a brutal 24 hours for Obama’s number two. “You can decide for yourself what you want to believe,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday, calling the timing of the photo access

I’ve become very comfortable immediately interpreting any statement that comes out of the White House exactly the opposite of what is said. I’m sure I’m not alone in that habit.

If these guys told you it was Thursday, I’d be checking a calendar before proceeding further.

I understand that Biden is dumb enough to think he might win the nomination and the general election.

But are there really people dumb enough to contribute money in support of that benighted mission?

Democrats think if they 'feel' something that makes it true. And if they 'feel it strongly' that makes it more true. Really, they're all nuts.

He is just running to make cash. And keep the campaign donations after he is out of office.

Really they should pass a law that the money goes to the General Fund and not be allowed to keep it.

Obama's number two ... states the case fairly well, I'd say.

As Obama has shown, the requirement for winning Democratic presidential nominations is to energize 110% of eligible black voters to vote for you in the primaries.

Joe Biden can’t do that, and neither can Hillary.

A black Democratic presidential candidate will emerge before 2016. The black community, led by the NAACP, will anoint someone, probably Cory Booker, to be its candidate.

If the black candidate wins the presidential nomination, he will have a chance to win in the general election, just as Obama did.

However, if a white candidate — Hillary, Joe Biden, or anyone else foolish enough to get into the race — wins the nomination, he/she will not be able to win the general election because he/she will not be able to get 110% of the black vote. In fact, the black community will be angry at the victorious white candidate for triumphing over the black candidate.

Joe Biden will have a lot of fun running for the nomination and make a lot of money; Hillary is already making a lot of money campaigning. If an Hispanic candidate should emerge, then things could get serious, and the entire Democratic party could implode along ethnic, feminist, and other lines.

But unless a black candidate wins the next Democratic presidential nomination, it’s likely to be over for the Democrats after 2016.

Don’t be too sure. Promising free money to any lazy person of any race is a way to win.

Hitlery will promise all non-working moochers free money.

So will Plugs Biden.

Whose promises do they believe?

I think they’ll believe Hitlery, as the Impeached “husband” will be out lying for her.

Gates said that Biden was a person of integrity - but was wrong on every single issue.

Gates was sort of right. By integrity, he meant that Biden actually had positions and stuck to them, not necessarily because he felt that it was to his benefit (unlike Obama, whose positions changed with every poll). Of course, Biden was among the most left-leaning members and was picked basically because the Dems wanted an older white guy who was solid in his left-wing political positions, already elected to office and serving with no major mishaps, and could cover for the lunatic they were presenting as their candidate. So Biden may have had some integrity, but as Gates said, he was completely wrong on every issue.

But like it or not, this was a brilliant political play, and Biden was one of the things that got Obama elected. The older white male voter felt that there would be somebody to bail him out if Obama turned out to be as crazy as he looked. The problem with this dream is that Biden was very leftwing and pretty useless to begin with, and now he’s practically invisible because Obama obviously felt that Biden was either causing him problems or distracting too much from His Holiness Obama.
