Skip to comments.White House: Obama not propping up Joe Biden
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 Obamas 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

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list

Why not, democrats do it all the time.
What was the “brutal 24 hours” for Biden?
Mighty big of them.
SlowJoe is actually raising money to run in 2016.
I figure he’ll last to the Iowa caucus, LOL.

Oh, we already have Jay, we already have.
Hillary will slice and dice Biden faster than a Ginsu knife in Bruce Lee’s hand.
No no no, Joe Biden’s Incompetence IS propping UP the Obama Admin as he is the “perfect rodeo clown”....
His Royal Majesty always needed a Fool to make himself look sharp!
What was that Jay?
If you like your decision you can keep it.? And would that also be period?.
Which is why I'm hoping John Effing Kerry decides to run again...
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?
Does Biden have to wear an eye patch and keep a cork on his fork like Ruprect (Steve Martin) in Dirty, Rotten Scoundrels? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7P5qJAI9BIc
Rodeo clowns in action:
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.
Yes, this is how they work it. No one can believe anything this administration says so truth is whatever anyone at anytime says.
True perhaps, but why would ANYBODY want to give him money?
"What's this cop kvetching about? Obama loves it when I do this to him."
I saw that,too. I thought “They are both number two”....
Stand up, Joe, stand up on your own. Let’s give a hand to Joe.
SloJoe always reminded me somewhat of Johnny Islin in the original “Manchurian Candidate”.
Obama's number two ... states the case fairly well, I'd say.
I’d donate to a Biteme run just for the sheer entertainment value.
Obama can’t prop himself up.
It’s great to see them on the defensive. Let’s keep them that way.
Bingo! That is the sad and scary truth.
Two losers...two peas in a pod.
Hillary’s two-fer... Take down Biden and Christie in one day.
We are faster. WH = LIARS
Looks like it ...
Everything the White Hut says is a lie.
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.
Biden sucks so it’s kinda hard to prop up that sucker.
Odd statement for a press secretary to make, but we used to have an adversarial press.
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.
That's mighty halfrican of them..
Obama doesn’t have to prop up Biden: Ryan did that nicely enough. Like Jack French Kemp did with “my friend Al Gore”.
Wow, Short Bus has just been damned with faint damnation.
Maybe they will do to him what they did in North Korea, feed him to starving dogs.
