In the most recent Democratic debate, Senator Cory Booker called Joe Biden to task for his constant name-dropping of Barack Obama. You invoke President Obama more than anybody in this campaign. You cant do it when its convenient and then dodge it when its not, he said in what was one of my favorite moments ever in any of the debates.
According to the New York Times, while Joe Biden was seeking counsel on whether to run for president, Barack Obama tried to talk his former vice president out of running.

Joe said in response, “And I don’t even want you to endorse me”
If Obama actually said this it was for the sole reason to protect Obama’s legacy. Now everything that involved Biden, including the Obama years is fair game to be shredded by the other candidates. Between Trump undoing much of what Obama put in place and his own party shredding it, he will end up with just being a void in history.
That’s funny, but what isn’t funny is Pence running for president in 2024. He is NOT the man to take down the 80% unconstitutional portion of the $4 trillion Federal Government - the greatest threat to our freedom and our Free Constitutional Republic.
Obama was a slick politician, as were his puppet masters. They knew “Slow Joe” was not up to the task and would end up making Odumbass look bad.
IMO, if it’s Pence 2024, it would be like GHWB reversing the good Reagan did. We need Gen. Flynn unleashed and ready to continue the fight!
I always thought Slow Uncle Joe was a placeholder for the Obamas until Moochelle was ready to get into the race.
Well, duh! Biden was there as impeachment insurance and to shore up the gravitas quotient for the pair, nothing more.
I think we have to continue with nominating outsiders from DC, but we have to do our part by electing more newbies to the House and Senate, and driving out the RINO scum that stands in the way of the kinds of changes that have to be made in our governance. The entire DC political structure is corrupt to the core, and I would be wary of nominating another of that group for 2024!
Go Slojo, go. Veep of the worst president in the history of the republic is worth something, right Groper? Processing issues be damned.
Exactly what I thought when Trump first picked Pence (for political reasons to bring in the so-called moderates (read "Light Leftist Republicans")). Before Trump picked his VP, I was yelling at him all the way from my place here in New Mexico - "DON'T DO WHAT REAGAN DID WITH GHWB!!!" Guess I didn't yell loud enough.
I hope and pray that Pence will decline to run, becsue if he does, he will almost certainly win because of Trump like GHWB did because of Reagan. Then Pence's weak Presidency will get steamrolled in 2028, like 1992, by the Satanic Islamic Left, but this time America will disappear.
I don't think that will happen because I think God has a few more decades left for America and the world, because at this point, the only thing holding this world in one piece politically is America.
This aint a job for no white boy
True, and it is even more rotten than D.C. It is state and local gov’ts as well. Look at what the Portland Mayor just did. It makes me start to wonder if the country isn’t just too far gone to be repaired within the system.
From Liberty Daily:
“Rather Than Arresting Violent Democrat-Marxist Antifa Domestic Terrorists Like The Ones Who Assaulted Journalist Andy Ngo, Leftist Democrat Portland Mayor Arrests Christian Patriot Prayer Leader Joey Gibson: They Want to Put Fear in Your Hearts”
Biden thinks Obama picked him for V.P. because he was the most qualified.
The truth is that Obama picked him because he was among the least qualified in terms of ability and competence.
Obama didn’t want a strong, competent, dynamic white running mate who would overshadow him.
Pence wont win even if he does run.
Look hows he acted as VP? His speeches are lackluster or outright wilting and he doesnt fight for Trump.
Unfortunately I dont see anybody in the GOP Id vote for after Trump either.
Was he hand feeding Biden some Applesauce at the time?
Biden responded: "That's okay.....I still have President Truman's endorsement."
Pence is never going to POTUS. And he won’t get the nom, either. He’s as personable as Ted Cruz.
