Trey Gowdy said his party can't impeach the president over his threatened immigration overhaul but only because Biden would become president
The folksy Biden wants the top job for himself but Republicans see him as a potentially embarrassing one-man gaffe factory
One senior House GOP aide said Biden is 'two floppy shoes short of a complete clown outfit' and Obama's 'insurance policy'
Gowdy hinted that impeachment is being dangled by the White House as bait in the hope that the GOP will destroy its own credibility by trying it
A Texas Republican congressman and a judge-turned-news-analyst floated the idea this week
A Republican congressman known as a pit bull in Washington said Thursday that he doesn't support the idea of impeachment proceedings against President Obama because winning that fight would elevate the vice president to the Oval Office.
'Have you met Joe Biden?' South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy asked during a Fox News Channel interview.
Impeachment talk has swirled around Washington since the president announced that an executive order overhauling America's immigration system is imminent.
But some in the GOP see Biden as Obama's hedge against removal from office, since much of his public exposure has come in conjunction with a series of embarrassing gaffes.
A senior aide to a House Republican told MailOnline on Friday that 'Avoiding the "I" word' is a case of 'better the devil you know than the devil you don't.'
'Only in this case, we're pretty sure we know both devils. And Biden he's two floppy shoes short of a complete clown outfit. Let's be honest: He's Obama's insurance policy.'

OK smart butt, Gowdy. Try THIS!
So, impeach Obama, and charge Biden, Pelosi and maybe even Boehner with being accessories to the crime.
“But some in the GOP see Biden as Obama’s hedge against removal from office, since much of his public exposure has come in conjunction with a series of embarrassing gaffes. “
If Biden didn’t act like someone’s lunatic uncle before Obama became President I would have sworn this was planned all along. Because no one, I mean no one can be that much of a moron.
“One senior House GOP aide said Biden is ‘two floppy shoes short of a complete clown outfit’ and Obama’s ‘insurance policy’”
A President Biden would be a dream come true for comedians.
This is total BS, at least they could control Biden.
Repeatedly read the list of impeachABLE offenses into the congressional record.
Please add Reid and McConnell to that list. I would be fine with all four leaders of Congress along with Obama, Biden, Jarrett, and Holder disappearing. While I am wishing for a pony, might as well add Soros to that list.
Yup. Shows you how deep the RINO runs in Gowdy.
Stupid. What an idiotic excuse to suggest keeping Obama because Biden might be worse. Biden is better than Obama—at least he believes in America. Impeach Obama Now!
“One senior House GOP aide said Biden is ‘two floppy shoes short of a complete clown outfit’ and Obama’s ‘insurance policy’ Gowdy hinted that impeachment is being dangled by the White House as bait in the hope that the GOP will destroy its own credibility by trying it.”
Leave Herr Obozo in the outhouse and Nanzi in charge of the left wing nuts in the House Then, let them go on tv each day for the next 2 years.
That should set the Rats back for a few decades if not forever.
Gowdy’s the clown.
So, Trey Gowdy, would rather work (entrust) Obama than the foolish character Joe Biden. I am pretty sure Joe is a real citizen and loves his county. The other, not so much. The repubs could control Biden and could actually work with him. I am not buying any of this spin from this congressman.
Send it to him!
“Yup. Shows you how deep the RINO runs in Gowdy.”
Yeah, but once again, there are FReepers who think Gowdy is on our side.
Haven’t we all said that Biden is Obama’s insurance policy?
I have been saying this from the beginning!
Joe is so dumb... he makes even Obama look smart by comparison!
And Joe... is a died in the wool true believer liberal!
We don’t need to make Joe the incumbent heading into 2016.
I’m doing it now. Also to Cruz, who might actually read it : )
Just because Zero would be impeached doesn’t mean Biden would become President. Clinton was impeached, he didn’t step down, I don’t see Zero doing it either.
Look no further for what's wrong with the GOP.
Joseph Robinette Biden was born in Scranton, PA to two US citizen parents. He played football for his Catholic high school and in college. His Dad had normal American jobs and experiences. His Mom was not a communist who was entranced by third-world men.
He has many wrongheaded ideas, but I would trade Obama (or whatever his real name is) for Biden in a heartbeat.
