During a campaign stop in Florida today, Vice President Joe Biden tried to convince at least one voter they would eventually vote for his presidential candidacy in 2016. This isn't the first time Biden has hinted at a 2016 run for the White House.
Comments: I would encourage Joe to run, but Lord what would we do if he actually won?
I'll be dead by then and the demorats will use my vote for biden. However if I am alive there is NO way I would vote for that imbecile. How he ever was elected Senator suggests to me that the IQ of the folks in Deleware might almost be equal to their age.
Don't laugh, but I can easily see the Demon-RATS running Crazy Uncle Joe as their candidate in 2016.
Think about it. Romney has such an incredibly good first four years, that he has 90% approval ratings. He is a shoe-in for reelection. The Demon-RATS know they can't beat him, so they pick a ''sacrifical lamb'' to run against him as a reward for being a faithful party lackey for years. Think of John McPain in the last election.
Who better to sacrifice than Crazy Uncle Joe??? Works for me...
To here we have it. Whacked out Joe and poor Jill who thinks having a PhD in education is something you want people to know about and worse, something that requires she be addressed only as DOCTOR Biden. Okay Crazy Joe and DOCTOR Biden, as two proven incompetent phonies perfectly paired with the Os... just what is that you plan to offer in 2016? Please, oh please, tell us...don't think I could bear having to wait to find out.
Oh, man is this for real? Not from the Onion? I'm gonna start sticking up on popcorn for the next 4 years.
Although, as #20 astutely points out, the Hildabeest will have four more painful years to perfect her bitter, hag-like look and screech. She will hit the 2016 campaign trail like a 300-pound rat in heat. 68 years old and getting angrier and more strident every day. I'd better double up on the popcorn!
I'm thinking Hillary will give it a try, but she'll be 69 and still covered in Obama. The guy that made the break just in time, who is ambitious and aggressive, polishing his image machine every day, and is still involved on the national scence campaigning for the party in Florida, is the former presidential chief of staff. Emmanuel will run if Romney isn't a shoo-in and Obama doesn't win now thus ruining 2016. I'm hoping Romney wins in 12 and we get to see what Axelrod and Allred do to get rid of Emanuel for Obama 2016. Popcorn in Chicago.
To put it more simply, Newt Gingrich has a better chance at the Dem nomination than Uncle Joe.
SEATTLE — Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon.com, told reporters today that his reported purchase of the Washington Post was a “gigantic mix-up,” explaining that he had clicked on the newspaper by mistake. “I guess I was just kind of browsing through their website and not paying close attention to what I was doing,” he said. “No way did I intend to buy anything.” Mr. Bezos said he had been oblivious to his online shopping error until earlier today, when he saw an unusual charge for two hundred and fifty million dollars on his American Express statement.
CLEVELAND — A former school bus driver who pleaded guilty to more than 900 counts, including aggravated murder, kidnapping and rape, after imprisoning three women in his west Cleveland house for a decade, gave a rambling justification for his crimes at his sentencing hearing Thursday, denying that he was depraved or violent and saying instead that there had been “a lot of harmony in that house.” Afterward, the man, Ariel Castro, 53, was sentenced to life in prison plus an additional 1,000 years by Judge Michael J. Russo of Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court.
Anthony Weiner shouldn´t count on Eliot Spitzer for support in the New York City mayor´s race. Spitzer, the former New York governor who resigned because of a prostitution scandal, was asked Monday by Chris Matthews on MSNBC whether his fellow disgraced Democrat should not be mayor of New York. "Fair point, that is correct," Spitzer said. Spitzer, who is running for New York City comptroller, said he would fire any municipal employee who engaged in the same behavior as Weiner.
Police say a family found a pipe stuffed with marijuana inside a Kids Meal bought for a 4-year-old boy at a Burger King restaurant in southern Michigan. [snip] After officers responded to the restaurant, they identified a 23-year-old employee who admitted to owning the paraphernalia. Uhl said the employee told officers that he put the pipe in the box to hide it while he worked and he didn’t mean to give it out.
The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday struck down a federal law that restricts the definition of marriage to opposite-sex couples in a major victory for the gay rights movement. The ruling, on a 5-4 vote, means that legally married gay men and women are entitled to claim the same federal benefits that are available to opposite-sex married couples.
The George Zimmerman second-degree murder case will proceed to trial June 10, after his judge today denied his defense team´s latest request for a delay. The ruling was among several important decisions by Circuit Judge Debra S. Nelson during a two-hour hearing this morning at the Seminole County Courthouse. The judge ruled for the state on several key issues: The defense may not bring up Trayvon Martin´s past marijuana use at trial, or his school suspensions or alleged participation in fights, without clearing several legal hurdles and another ruling granting permission.
Civil rights icon Julian Bond defended the IRS for targeting tea party groups, on Tuesday, labeling them “the Taliban wing of American politics.” “I think it’s entirely legitimate to look at the tea party,” Bond said on MSNBC. “Here are a group of people who are admittedly racist, who are overtly political, who’ve tried as best they can to harm President Obama in every way they can.” [snip] “I don’t think there are any parallels to what we’re seeing today,” he said. “Of course we were unfairly targeted.”
The last time O.J. Simpson was in a Las Vegas courtroom, he stood next to defense attorney Yale Galanter before being handcuffed and hauled off to prison for up to 33 years. On Monday, the former football hero returns to Clark County District Court with a different set of lawyers hoping to convince a judge that ... the lawyer who was paid nearly $700,000 for Simpson´s defense had a personal interest in preventing himself from being identified as a witness to the crimes and so misled Simpson that the former football star deserves a new trial. "To me, the claims are solid. I don't know how the court
A company that made millions of dollars by suing people for improperly viewing pornographic movies on the Internet repeatedly deceived courts while “seeking easy money” from people too embarrassed to defend themselves, a federal judge ruled Monday. U.S. District Judge Otis D. Wright II found that Prenda Law Inc., its attorney, its owners -- who also are lawyers -- and affiliated companies made false statements in court in an online piracy case. He ordered the companies and the lawyers to pay $81,320 in fees and damages to the attorneys for one of the people they sued.
In 1999, Al Gore, then U.S. vice president and a Democratic candidate for president, sold $6,000 worth of cows. The former senator, who spent most of his working life in Congress, had a net worth of about $1.7 million and assets that included pasture rents from a family farm and royalties from a zinc mine, remnants of his rural roots in Carthage, Tennessee. [snip]Fourteen years later, he made an estimated $100 million in a single month.
Waterton, Mass. - Investigators in the Boston Marathon bombing case shifted their focus Saturday to hunting for a motive and preparing charges after apprehending a 19-year-old college student Friday night. The charges against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who remained hospitalized with severe injuries, could be filed this weekend, but it might take longer as law enforcement officials continue investigating numerous crime scenes in and around Boston. Investigators were also eager to talk to Mr. Tsarnaev, who was listed in serious condition after being badly injured early Friday morning in a firefight
During oral arguments today at the Supreme Court, Justice Antonin Scalia and attorney Ted Olson had a pointed exchange over whether same-sex marriage is a fundamental right guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. Scalia's argument, which was advanced by Chief Justice John Roberts before him, was that when the institution of marriage developed historically, it was not done with the explicit intent of excluding gay and lesbian couples.
In 2008 and then again in 2012, after retired four-star General Colin Powell endorsed and then voted for Barack Obama, the former Secretary of State´s sanity was already in question. At least now, after having his email account hacked by high-level security-breacher Guccifer, Colin Powell´s besmirching of the Republican Party´s "shift to the right" and "identity crisis" finally makes sense. It seems that for years the mannerly and always professional Colin Powell has been cyber-comporting with a 46-year-old Romanian European Parliament member, Social Democrat, and past spokesperson for Romanian president Ion Iliescu named Corina Cretu
Conservatives have for years attempted to put our finger upon precisely why Barack Obama strikes us as queer in precisely the way he does. There is an alienness about him, which in the fever swamps is expressed in all that ridiculous Kenyan-Muslim hokum, but his citizen-of-the-world shtick is strictly sophomore year — the great globalist does not even speak a foreign language. Obama has been called many things — radical, socialist — labels that may have him dead to rights at the phylum level but not down at his genus or species. His social circle includes
For nearly a year, we have had no answer to why the administration lied about Benghazi — why it told the world, not to mention the parents of our murdered SEALs at the funeral of their sons, that the cause of that fatal conflagration was an anti-Islamic video no one saw, when the various arms of our executive branch (White House, State and intelligence) already knew, or strongly suspected, it was a terror attack orchestrated by al-Qaeda affiliates. You only have to read the now infamous talking points to know that. That this lie was deeply immoral is obvious.
He thought he was a woman trapped in a man’s body — but it turns out he’s “just another boring straight guy.” ABC News editor Don Ennis strolled into the newsroom in May wearing a little black dress and an auburn wig and announced he was transgender and splitting from his wife. He wanted to be called Dawn. But now he says he suffered from a two-day bout of amnesia that has made him realize he wants to live his life again as Don. “I accused my wife of playing some kind of cruel joke, dressing
WASHINGTON — Former Massachusetts lawmaker Barney Frank revealed that he doesn’t believe in God. During Friday’s appearance on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” Frank, who championed the decriminalization of pot while serving in the House of Representatives, admitted to smoking marijuana and being an atheist. “You were in a fairly safe district. You were not one of those congress people who would have to worry about every little thing,” Maher said to Frank. “You could come on this show and sit next to a pot-smoking atheist and it wouldn’t bother you.”
The truth about Benghazi, the Associated Press/James Rosen monitoring, the IRS corruption, the NSA octopus, and Fast and Furious is still not exactly known. Almost a year after the attacks on our Benghazi facilities, we are only now learning details of CIA gun-running, military stand-down orders, aliases of those involved who are still hard to locate, massaged talking points, and the weird jailing of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula. We still do not quite know why Eric Holder’s Justice Department went after the Associated Press or Fox News’s James Rosen — given that members of the administration were themselves illegally leaking
Washington--As hundreds of commuters emerged from Amtrak and commuter trains at Union Station on a recent morning, an armed squad of men and women dressed in bulletproof vests made their way through the crowds. The squad was not with the Washington police department or Amtrak’s police force, but was one of the Transportation Security Administration’s Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response squads — VIPR teams for short — assigned to perform random security sweeps to prevent terrorist attacks at transportation hubs across the United States.(Snip)With little fanfare, the agency best known for airport screenings has vastly expanded its reach
A poll released Friday by Public Policy Polling found that Alaska voters would pick former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the state´s former Republican governor, Sarah Palin, if the two women were to face off in the 2016 presidential election. Clinton led with 49 percent in the hypothetical match-up, with Palin at 40 percent, a nine-point gap. As of July 3, Republicans comprised 27 percent of the state´s registered voters and Democrats made up just 14 percent. The last time Alaskans opted for the Democrats´ presidential candidate was in 1964. Clinton trails five other hypothetical GOP candidates –
In an interview for The Guardian Weekend magazine, actor Matt Damon recently weighed in with his thoughts on how President Barack Obama has handled the scandals that have engulfed his administration since the spring. Damon, a vocal supporter of the president since his 2008 campaign for national office, said that Obama is overcompensating for his lack of military background with his tough response to controversies like how the government is responding to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden. The actor said that Obama is allowing himself to “get bullied” and is acting as though is “manhood”
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus threatened to pull the group’s partnership with NBC and CNN for 2016 GOP presidential primary debates if the networks moved ahead with plans to air films on Hillary Clinton. “If they have not agreed to pull this programming prior to the start of the RNC’s Summer Meeting on August 14, I will seek a binding vote stating that the RNC will neither partner with these networks in 2016 primary debates nor sanction primary debates they sponsor,” Preibus said in a statement. In individual letters to CNN President Jeff Zucker and NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt,
The Pentagon has placed its elite cadre of special operations teams on full alert to launch preemptive attacks against suspected al Qaeda targets across the globe, according to reports. The American special forces teams have spent the past week waiting for U.S. military and intelligence officials to confirm the whereabouts of the terror cell plotting to attack U.S. diplomatic outposts in the Mideast and North Africa. Unnamed sources told CNN on Monday that the teams were poised to carry out the preemptive strikes, but declined to comment on where the U.S. forces were located or which potential
Oprah Winfrey on Monday said the killings of Trayvon Martin and Emmett Till are the "same thing." This transpired during an interview with The Grio that aired on NBC´s Today show. OPRAH WINFREY: It´s so easy during this time: Trayvon Martin, Trayvon Martin parallel to Emmett Till, let me just tell you. In my mind, same thing. But you can, you can get stuck in that and not allow yourself to move forward and to see how far we´ve come. Really? Martin and Till are the same thing?
