If he weren’t so ideologically dangerous, he might be considered a harmless, old fuzzball, kind of like Admiral Stockdale, but without the military heroics and stuff.
His gaffes are legendary, at least among people on the right who actually took notice.
“J-O-B-S, J-O-B-S, J-O-B-S”, telling a wheelchair bound man to “stand up”, calling Obama “Barack America”, pointing out FDR’s television responses to the 1929 stock market crash, even though FDR wasn’t around politically then and there were no TVs.
And add now his bumbling talk on how he would advise his family concerning the swine flu farce.
He is an embarrassment and a potential loose nut in an otherwise well-oiled machine.
The reason I bring this up is totally self serving.
I’ve said it before and I’ll float the idea again.
Barack Obama, for the next presidential election, will dump Joe Biden and replace him on the ticket with Hillary Clinton.
Biden is just too much of a stooge to be taken seriously. And he has become a verbal liability.
Clinton’s age will not be a factor. The country elected a black president. They almost elected Hillary as the Democratic candidate, and she would have beaten McCain. They will not care about Clinton’s age to be VP. And the women’s vote, if not already, would be tied up nicely.
Consider the first two years of this administration a cram session. Look at the sea change that has occurred in just 100 days. They have the votes needed to ram whatever they want through, changing the political, social, and philosophical landscape in the minds of the public for a long while to come. The last two years will solely be devoted to paving the way to a smooth re-election.
A powerful, scary ticket.
