Obama Has 21 Days to Drop Biden: Would Dumping Biden Signal Desperation?

President Obama has a lot of pressure to dump Vice President Joe Biden from the 2012 election campaign. Biden would not likely run for president in 2016 at the age of 73. Biden, a former Senator from Delaware, doesn't help with voters in the swing states like Florida, Virginia, Ohio or Pennsylvania. And Biden continues to bore people except with his gaffes ("20th Century") or outlandish rhetoric (accusing Republicans of enslaving people).

President Obama could shake things up by replacing Biden with Secretary Hillary Clinton as his vice president on his 2012 re-election ticket. Some pundits argue that would signal desperation by the Obama 2012 campaign because it would look as if Obama made a bad choice in picking Biden in 2008. Dumping Biden would only happen in desperation.

Then again, maybe President Obama would dump Biden for a candidate like Hillary Clinton because even Biden considers her more qualified for vice president (watch the video).

    I am not so sure that Biden's latest gaffes are not a planned distraction from the numbers coming out on the economy. Also, the granny off the cliff demonization is not working as well as t the Obama campaigners were hoping. The question has come up about the 716 billion dollars that has been taken out of medicare to help pay for Obamacare. The timing of Biden's gaffes is always interesting. Besides, I am sure that the campaign staff goes through Biden's speaches with a fine tooth comb, and I doubt anything has been said that is not the sentiment of this administration.

    This isn't even close to the reason that's NOT, or ever was going to happen. This is made up bullcrap rumor made up by FAUX news and the ultimate brainless broad Blunderwoman herself Sarah Palin. But she would know a thing or two about a failed, inept, erroneous, unqualified VP on a ticket. It was a real laugh'er to hear John McCain make a total fool of himself even bothering to comment with his record of picking a VP.

    It would be the smart move but Obama won't do it because Obama is so stuck on himself, He thinks he can overcome anything. Besides, I would love to see a Joe Biden vs. Jim Ryan VP. Debate. Biden won't be dealing with someone inexperienced in national politics/debates this time like Palin was. Ryan will give Biden a run for his money and mop the floor up with Biden.

    And it's not going to happen. The real desperation is on the other side. Watch them try to suppress the vote in Democratic-leaning districts within swing states. That's not just desperation, it's called stealing an election.

    Don't let them get away with it. Vote for "NOT MITT"

    But, I'm not an Obama supporter. A friend said that he thought if Obama dropped Biden it could hurt him, but I don't see how unless he chose a worse running mate. It really doesn't matter to me as I plan on voting Libertarian regardless who Obama chooses as a running mate.

    It would signal desperation, but I don't think he needs to do that. They will win anyway. Romney picked the wrong vice president.

    Biden was 0bozo's insurance policy against impeachment and the Dem's would be hard pressed to get any more desperate or lower than they are already.

    That said,.... Jay Carney took the $64,000 question yesterday and gave an emphatic 'NO',.... when addressing the possibility of Biden being replaced on the ticket.

    If Obama dumped Biden it would be risky, too. Political signs, ads, and bumper stickers would have to be changed. More importantly, it would make the Obama ticket look unsteady and wishy-washy.

    I doubt if Obama could dump him; he would have to resign and why would Joe want to give up all those perks. What Joe said to the black audience was so horrible, I believe he is suffering from some brain damage from his brain surgery years ago.

    that would be like shutting the gate after the horses have already gotten out. Besides he doesn"t want to look like a goof but that too is too late. He has already showed what a bummer he is. His votes are made up of silly young girls , the gays and people that can:t or wont read. They stand and listen to his babble and applaud with no idea what he;s saying. sad. They don:t want to hear about what he has planned for this country. He has since college had marxist and commie mentors and is leading our country in that direction. They just will not face it or won:t listen.

    It would show some signs of original thinking and finally getting some testicular fortitude.
    Funny how a Republican President had presided over a war to free slaves. How soon we forget US history
