Biden reveals secret of his success: He’s known three presidents intimately

posted at 6:41 pm on August 22, 2012 by Allahpundit

To cleanse the palate, via BuzzFeed. He doesn’t name the three, but let’s face it: Bill Clinton’s not known for being discriminating.

The bit about knowing presidents intimately is silly fun but this is worth watching for the substantive point he’s trying to make. He really, truly wants you to believe that a guy who waited until an election year to unilaterally enact parts of the DREAM Act and reveal his true position on gay marriage is too high-minded to make policy with an eye to political considerations. Pro tip for Slow Joe: The reason he never asks “how do I benefit from this decision?” at cabinet meetings is because he’s already thought that through. He doesn’t need any input on it from you and Hillary. That’s what Axelrod and Plouffe are for. You don’t even need to be conservative to see this: The left griped endlessly during the ObamaCare debate that O should have pushed harder for the public option given that he potentially had 60 Democratic votes in the Senate for it. He didn’t push for it, though, partly because he worried about feeding the GOP’s attacks that the bill was a government takeover of health care. He wanted to preserve as much centrist credibility as possible for his re-election bid, which is always job one. Defend his policies if you want, but cut the “above politics” crap at least. We’re one too many “Romney gave a steelworker’s wife cancer” ads past that for it to work anymore.

I’m not so sure the Dems will actually paint a bull’s eye on Biden’s forehead. Even if Biden were dumb enough to fall for it, the Dems are hardly that stupid. Well, probably not.

The moment it was suggested that Joe would be the distraction at the GOP convention, the comment-mills started measuring him for a body bag.

But think about it. Since the opinion, no – conviction, that Biden would be a marked man is so widely circulating, how could the Dems actually convince the American people that it was a Republican dirty deed?

As the desparate Dems fall behind in fundraising, drag their butts in the polls, Romney/Ryan capture so much favorable public attention, Obama makes one verbal blunder after another while his dainty bride is associates herself with a sexplicit website, they are the first people we would think of as responsible if anything happened to dear old Joe.

This is, after-all, the same Joe Biden that once claimed he graduated number one in his class at law school before it turned out he graduated at the bottom of his class. Hmmmm, maybe that is why Obama had his own records sealed as he and his “people” claim he was one brilliant student.

When asked to name them he said, ‘Carter, Clinton, Gore, and Obama…’

Was the blue dress in Joe Biden’s size?

I’ll bet Joe can form the “K” in ‘OHIO’.

So, is Joe a pitcher or a catcher?

Does he still have his blue dress?

Make it STOOOOOOOOOOPPPPPPPPPP!
