If Joe Biden runs for president in 2016, as he said there's a 50/50 chance he might, there are many reasons he will be an attractive candidate, he explained today on "The View," where Barbara Walters greeted him with a hug and the declaration that he is a a "superb" Vice President, a "fact" she says no one can deny.
Biden's reasons for being a "superb" candidate for POTUS are as follows:
He's spearheaded many projects, particularly that spectacular withdrawal from Iraq.
He has great amount of "knowledge of foreign policy."
He's had a great deal of "engagement with foreign leaders."
There was that great report on Obamacare from the CBO, if you can get "beyond" the job numbers.
Single mothers can stay home with their kids because they'll have free health care. Or something.
Obamacare's a "great program."
Obamacare's "about freedom."
His wife supports his run.
There seems to be some cognitive dissonance here.
Iraq's a mess; even Malaki asked for help the other day.
Has Biden been sent around the world as a foreign policy leader representing the US and Barack Obama? Guess we missed that.
Does Biden not know that millions have already lost their jobs and will lose their jobs because of Obamacare?
Does Biden not realize how high the unemployment rate is, and that the underemployment rate is devastating?
There's more but I'll stop at this laugher.
Biden says he's running on Obama's agenda of world peace......"my experience uniquely positions me to follow through on the agenda
Barack and I have of bringing world peace that is real and substantive....”
Ya looked out the door lately, Biden?
UPDATE: In my haste to take advantage of the intermittent wi-fi here, I neglected to mention that Biden also covered himself with, well, laughter last night on Late Night with Seth Myers, complete with error upon error, and even taking second billing behind another SNL alum.
All in all, a couple of auspicious performances.
