Open thread to talk about Obama's Vice President pick - Joe Biden


[UPDATE - ZZZZZZZZ.... I guess I'll go read some Neil Kinnock speeches.... boring pick, won't help him win a single vote. But at least Biden the attack dog will make McCain his b*tch..]


I like longshots and surprises, so I'd be pretty disappointed with a lying pompous career DC hack like Biden, the overwhelming favorite right now...

My top recommendations would be

1) Wes Clark
2) Mark Warner
3) Michael Bloomberg
4) Anthony Zinni

The worst picks I think would be

1) Clinton
2) Dodd
3) Bayh
4) Biden

In the end, it doesn't matter, unless the Veep is caught with a dead girl or a live boy. Nope, this election is about two things and two things only.

Obama and housing.

Doesn't matter. No VP pick can conceal the fact that he's a Marxist at heart.

It may not matter who Obama picks. He has moved so far to the right that most Americans no longer want him to be their President.

You really have your blinkers on Kweefer.

Obama

and

Housing

Yeah, that's all it's about, riiiight!!

Never mind the rising police state, the destruction of the dollar, the exponentially expanding national debt, the destruction of the Constitution, the illegal wars and out of control government spending.

No, it's just about Obama and housing. Sheesh!!

Just to make it clear I don't think Obama or McCain are the answer. They are one and the same.

Everybody needs to take this crash course in US economics to understand the problems we face and understand that neither candidate is addressing them:

Blogger Fred Reed made an interesting observation about Obama's VP choice. Fred thinks he needs a guy who could walk in to a VFW hall, order a drink and talk comfortably with the guys there. Unless his VP can do that, Obama has a snowball's chance in hell of getting enough votes in the midwest and south.

HILLARY GETS STIFFED

(i.e. Obama just makes it look good, but in reality he is no different than the rest)

There’s one Democrat who would seem to have little or no chance of being picked by Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) to be his running mate – his former opponent, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.).

But it’s not for the reason you think.

Obama has often said, most recently on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on July 27, that Clinton “would be on anybody’s short list.”

But apparently not his.

“She was never vetted,” a Democratic official reported. “She was not asked for a single piece of paper. She and Senator Obama have never had a single conversation about it. How would he know if she’d take it?”

The official also said Clinton never met with Obama’s vetting team of Eric Holder and Caroline Kennedy.

And the official said she was never asked for medical records or for any financial 2008 information about her or former President Bill Clinton. The last information the couple has disclosed about taxes and financial holdings was for 2007.

The Clintons also were not asked about donors to the William J. Clinton Presidential Library.

“This would be the biggest leap of faith ever,” the official said. “She’s waiting for the text message like everyone else.”

An Obama aide said "absolutely exhaustive research was done on her over the course of the 16 month primary. She was researched more closely than any candidate in history."

keith said...

I agree - Obama need's a guy's guy as VP - like Reagan, who would pop into an Irish bar and tip one down.

And on the election being about Obama and housing, it just is.

If the American people decide that he's capable of being president, then he will be. McCain is irrelevant.

And housing has taken over from terrorism and Iraq and gays and abortion as the #1 issue far and away. It won't get better in the next few months, so that kills the GOP, who's seen as the cause of the economic collapse (rightly or wrongly)

Obama in an electoral landslide, with a 55/45 popular vote. Won't even be close. I'm just telling you how it is. If you feel otherwise, go to intrade and make yourself some serious money. Or I'd be happy to take some off you too.

Anonymous said...

Keith,

Are you really this stupid? This election isn't about housing, its about job-creation and which candidate has the best plan and mental fortitude to push GDP forward, as opposed to letting it fall. Housing as an issue on a macro-level is all smokescreen.

You obssess over housing, yet less than 3% of actual mortgage-holders and outright house-owners are in trouble financially...this is a fact! Yes, a few banks will go under, probably more than a few; but life will go on...its all about jobs, Keith...understand this you'll be ahead of most.

By the way, I don't see Obama winning in November...the DEMS should have picked Hillary if they wanted a realistic chance of winning...McCain's got this locked-up.

Personally I think Bloomberg's running in 2012, when the economy will be in shambles.

keith said...

I disagree with Obama on many things, but I'm an optimist, and I like candidates who run on an optimistic, hopeful, forward-looking, America can be great footing. Reagan did it, Clinton did it and now Obama is doing it.

And if you remember, things were pretty good under Reagan and Clinton.

McCain on the other hand is running a negative, mean-spirited, backward-looking, fearful, hopeless campaign. How he'll get anyone to vote for him is beyond me. Fear is his only message.

The two party system sucks, I'll agree. I'd love a 3rd choice, or a strong and viable 3rd party - centrist and libertarian.

And regardless of my lukewarm support for Obama, I'm simply telling you how it's gonna be. I told you over two years ago that he'd win. And now he will.

Deal with it.

And get ready for a mess. Obama is screwed and his hands are tied, thanks to eight years under the Worst President of All Time. It'll take a miracle for him to be successful.

kilgore said...

Gore would be a great choice - and I bet he'd take it.

Frank@MarketingOpus.com said...

And if you remember, things were pretty good under Reagan and Clinton.

Clinton? All he did was get blown by a fat chick under his desk while a fake dot-com bubble created the false illusion of economic growth. The guy did nothing but live in luxury for eight years.

I'd have to disagree that housing is the big issue. It *was* until gas prices became #1.

The timing was bad on housing. People think in a "right here, right now" mentality. They've accepted the housing crash and they're over it. All they care about right now is gas prices. Even economic fallout from housing will now be blamed on oil.

Since people are all stupid enough to believe that all things, good and bad, are attributable to the sitting President, Bush gets credit for falling oil prices, Democrats look like jerks for blocking the offshore drilling vote, and McCain sails in by a 5-point lead in the election.

ABC said...

I think no matter who wins, he will be a one-term president. The economy will be a wreck for at least the next 4 years. And like always, the president will be blamed for "not fixing it".

Taking a VP position would probably be a dead-end politically. Some of the stronger VP candidates (like Bloomberg) would be better off waiting until the next election.

I'm glad Ron Paul is sitting on a pile of donation money - he'll be better positioned in the next election.

Rush Limbaugh Online, "John Kerry’s Resume":

[Kerry] has lived the life of a millionaire living off the inherited wealth of his two wives. As an Ivy League educated millionaire who did not have to work for his fortune, Mr. Kerry never had to worry about the money he earned, the taxes he paid, or the programs he and Ted Kennedy forced the rest of us to pay for. . . . Mr. Kerry Heinz is not effected (sic) when these neighborhoods are destroyed and working class families lose the largest asset in their retirement plans—their home’s value.

So now they're trying to levy the same attacks they used against Kerry against Obama, but the reality is that this time around, the opposite is actually true:

McCain, who has portrayed Obama as an elitist, is the son and grandson of admirals. The Associated Press estimates his wife, a beer heiress, is worth $100 million. Obama was raised by a single mother who relied at times on food stamps, and went to top schools on scholarships and loans. His income has increased from book sales since he spoke at the 2004 Democratic convention.

Anonymous said...

Just so we are clear- visiting your grandmother while vacationing in Hawaii, the state where you were you were born- elitist.

Meeting the millionaire heiress daughter (who you will soon begin an affair with and divorce your first wife and then go on and buy a ton of houses) in Hawaii and then going on and honeymooning in Hawaii – not elitist.

I should be Obama's #1 choice for VP. I'd promise to lay low and keep out of his way. I think I'd be able to bring California electoral votes in for Obama. Easy.

Should Barack go in another direction, I think it'll be Biden. He needs an old guy who is a warhawk on the ticket.

went2puke said...

Wesley Clark would be Obama's best choice. He's a straight shooter and has the support of the troops. The first one to have openly criticized Bush's policies and exposed his approach to national security after 9/11. He'd make a terrific VP.

It would have been nice to have Ron Paul a heart beat away from the Presidency.

The MIC might have let Obama live in that scenario.

Bayh will be even worse than any of them. He works for lobbyists-not for the American people. From his voting record, he never stood up for anything meaningful.

LENEXA, Kan. -- After weeks of speculation and days of intense rumors, the answer to who Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama would name as his running mate may have come down to a bumper sticker printed in Lenexa.
KMBC's Micheal Mahoney reported that the company, which specializes in political literature, has been printing Obama-Bayh material. That's Bayh as in U.S. Sen. Evan Bayh of Indiana. Word leaked out about the material as it was being printed up by Gill Studios of Lenexa. The Obama campaign had said it would make the announcement by text message on Friday.
Gill Studios, which invented the bumper sticker, would not confirm information about the material. They would not deny it either.

He'll be a good VP but personally I'd like to see him as Secretary of State more.

Nice to see the McCain camp get right to work on this little gift from Obama:



McCain spokesman Ben Porritt issued the following statement on Barack Obama’s selection of Joe Biden as his running mate:

There has been no harsher critic of Barack Obama’s lack of experience than Joe Biden. Biden has denounced Barack Obama’s poor foreign policy judgment and has strongly argued in his own words what Americans are quickly realizing – that Barack Obama is not ready to be President.”

Obama was always depicted as someone who's selling words to Americans. By picking Biden he's bringing in more words to the ticket! Biden has a disease called "verbarrhea." He also has the “gift” of speaking from both sides of his mouth. I lost track of the instances in which Biden spoke vociferously against a bill, only to end up voting for it. He’s the ultimate demagogue.

The problem here is that we might end up with Biden in the Oval Office should something happen to Obama—a not-too-far-fetched scenario, I might add.
