Bite Me considers 2016 presidential run

| January 23, 2013

CNN speculates that Joe Bite Me, the most incompetent boob in the country, is eying yet another run at the White House;

The vice president greeted Democratic National Committee delegates at the Omni Shoreham hotel in the nation’s capital, where they were gathered for the DNC’s annual winter meeting.

Tuesday’s outreach to influential Democratic leaders and activists from across the country follows a weekend of hints that Biden may be gearing up for what would be his third bid for the White House.

I think it’s a great idea. He’s been absolutely wrong on every single issue since he got into politics, he’s a braggart and a liar of the highest magnitude. Nothing would be more entertaining than watching him implode. While Americans have disappointed me over the last few years, I’m fairly certain that we haven’t fallen so far that we’d allow Joe Biden to occupy the Oval Office. But, I’ve been wrong before. Once.

    Hate to say it, but if the DNC ran Bite-Me, then running the RNC campaign in 2016 would be TOO easy. Even if they re-ran Juan McPain (and that’s sinking some).
    All the ads would have to do would be to have a voice-over of Bite-Me’s own spoken words, with (silent) followup pix of what REALLY happened. Talk about hoisted by his own petard!

    Hey, it’s a natural! Drunk Uncle Joey will get a rug, lose a few pounds, get a tan and then let everyone know he’s Da Man for the job, dropping F-bombs along the way.

    Maybe I should run, too.

  3. mark says:

    Don’t be so sure about the American public. I have become very cinical. It is a very real possibility that they would vote the clown into power.

  4. Old Trooper says:

    Remember how the media and lefties were always bagging on Dan Quayle as being stupid, etc., because he mis-spelled one word, but those same people have said nothing about Biden, who has displayed more stupidity than all other Vice Presidents combined? Yeah, there’s no bias in the media. Nope.

  5. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    How about Biden, Clinton and Gore in a Cage Battle Royale for the nomination. Talk about a girl fight…

  6. Detn8r says:

    My faith in the American voter is not that high! The DNC would run him and every piece of crap idiot that put Obama in would pile on for anotherfree ride! We are already in a nose dive as a country, one more dipshit at the helm woukd be par for course with the left and MSM.

  7. The Dead Man says:

    #5 Is it really fair to call it a girl fight with Hillary in there?

    Maybe if the R party could get it’s crap together I’d share your confidence. Shame a third party’s still probably not an option.

  8. NHSparky says:

    Folks, the fact that he’s even CONSIDERING a run tells me not how stupid and deluded he and his handlers are, but how stupid he and his handlers think the American public is, or how many people will pull the lever for a guy just because of the “D” behind his name.

    (Case in point–I’d be willing to wager that Saddam Hussein would get 30-35 percent of the vote if he ran as a Demorcat. I challenge anyone to tell me otherwise.)

  9. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    @8. I’ll take that challenge. He’d get at least 40%.

  10. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    @7. Ha! Good point. No, it’s not fair. I retract my proposal.

  11. Anonymous says:

    @#3: exactly. Proof: Obama won twice.

  12. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Biden is veep because he was a senator. He was a known moron for many decades and an inveterate but bad liar all of that time as well. So, who is to blame? Not the obamaman, that’s for sure. He might have needed an east coaster the first time around but certainly not this time. To obamaman, Biden is a useful idiot. No, I place the blame on the Peoples of Delaware who first put him in the US Senate in 1972 and then kept returning that imbecile for nearly 30 years thereafter. Most of those who voted for him in ’72 were born before 1951. (The 26th Amendment was in effect for the ’72 vote and that’s why I said most.) In turn, this means that most voting Delawarians (Delawarites? DuPonters?)have, like Joey, been hooked on stupid for as long as Joey has. Just wanted to point this out to our friends in Delaware and say thanks.

  13. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    And another thing, while I’m at it. Joey claims to loathe the corporate world and the bad, bad people who operate it. I don’t recall any medium pointing out Delaware’s statutory love for those evil corporations. There’s good reason so very many are headquartered there, you know. And then there’s the environmental thingy. Delaware owes itself to chemical companies.But Joey had nothing whatsoever to do with these things, just beacsue he was a US senator from Delaware for nearly 30 years. Right.

  14. USMCE8Ret says:

    C’mon folks. We all know the only reason Obama picked Biden as his VP is because he needed someone to make him look good/smart.

  15. Devtun says:

    In the 2016 Democratic Primary…imagine Biden breaking out the Benghazi card on Hillary. No way the plagiarist Bite Me is ceding the Dem nomination to Clinton…he’ll dig up the whole Whitewater scandal, suspicious cattle futures profits, Vince Foster, Monica affair…etc. The all Geritol cage match.

    Speaking of Hillary and Benghazi, she is about to testify to Congress right about now….

  16. Miss Ladybug says:

    I have long thought Biden as Obama’s VP pick was insurance for Obama… Who would want Biden as President, should Obama not be able to complete his term (say, if the House were to issue Articles of Impeachment and the Senate were to actually convict…)?

  17. Scouts Out says:

    Jonn run for President. I’d love to see you wipe the floor with Biden in the debates.

  18. Ex-PH2 says:

    OK, so what if Biden had a stroke or a fatal cardiac event and left da prez with no VP?

    The Constitution did not provide for Vice Presidential vacancies until the Twenty-fifth Amendment was adopted. The Vice Presidency has been vacant several times due to death, resignation, or succession to the Presidency. Often these vacancies lasted for several years.

    Under Section 2, whenever there is a vacancy in the office of Vice President, the President nominates a successor who becomes Vice President if confirmed by a majority vote of both Houses of the Congress.

    But what happens if they both croak? After all, Obama quit smoking in 2010, but with a lifetime of smoking regularly, even if you quit there are studies now showing that the long-term effects do NOT dissipate. You can still drop dead or become gravely ill.

    Still, drunk Uncle Joey as da prez? Eeew!

  19. Hondo says:

    Ex-PH2: Presidential Succession Act of 1947 (as amended in 2002) prescribes that the Speaker of the House assumes the duties of POTUS in such an eventuality. Next on the list is President Pro Tempore of the Sentate. The cabinet secretaries follow, in order: State, Treasury, Defense, Justice, Interior, Agriculture, Commerce, Labor, HHS, HUD, Transportation, Energy, Education, VA, and Homeland Security. Constitutional authority for the act is Section 3 of the 20th Amendment, which allows for Congress to prescribe what happens if there is neither a POTUS or VP.

    It is not absolutely clear whether persons serving as Acting Secretaries may serve if their office’s position on the list is reached. Further, any person on this list must meet basic Constitutional requirements to serve as POTUS, or they are “passed over” in favor of the individual holding the next lower office on the list. This is why Kissenger was never in the line of Presidential Succession while SecState – he was not native-born.

  20. NHSparky says:

    Actually, if the GOP can get someone who isn’t a RINO to actually run, I’ve got to think they’ve got a pretty good shot at the White House in 2016…what’s left of the country to run at that point, anyway.

    I’m looking at the Dem short list and just shaking my head.

  21. Ex-PH2 says:

    Hondo: yes, but the 25th amendment comes after the 1947 act. So, in my fantasy, Joey Bitesem drops dead, Rep. Boehner becomes VP as per the 1947 act, then Obama has such a cow over having to actually deal with Boehner that he kicks the bucket, too.

    It was just an idea. Nothing more.

  22. Hondo says:

    Ex-PH2: in the event the VP dies/resigns/becomes POTUS, the Speaker of the House does not become VP – though he would be 2nd in line for succession at that point. Rather, the office of VP remains vacant until a successor is (1) nominated by the POTUS, and (2) approved by both houses of Congress.

    Exactly the scenario you propose has already happened twice, but in neither case did the Speaker of the House become VP.

    The first was when Agnew resigned in 1973. From Oct 10 to Dec 6 of that year, the US simply did not have a VP. The same also happened from Aug 9 to December 19 of the following year – Ford became POTUS on Aug 9, but Rockefeller did not assume the office of VP until Dec 19. In both of those cases the Speaker of the House, Carl Albert, retained his office as Speaker but also became second in line for the Presidency. Under the PSA, he’d have had to resign as Speaker to be sworn in as POTUS had either Nixon or Ford died before nominating someone to fill the office of VP. However, he would have only assumed duties as Acting President temporarily pending confirmation/rejection of the nominated VP had either Nixon or Ford died after nominating a prospective replacement VP. On approval by both Houses of Congress, the nominated VP would then become POTUS and the Acting President would revert back to his position of Speaker of the House.

  23. Hondo says:

    The one “corner case” that isn’t IMO adequately covered by the 20th/25th Amendments and the PSA is the following scenario:

    1. VP becomes disabled (physically or mentally) and refuses to or is incapable of resigning. (The 25th Amendment doesn’t prescribe what to do if the VP is incapacitated – only the POTUS.) Lawfully, they can only be involuntarily removed via impeachment; otherwise, barring resignation or death they serve their full term.
    2. Before that is sorted out, the POTUS dies.

    What we do then, Keemosabe? Frankly, I’ll be damned if I know – we still have a VP, but they are not capable of serving. What if they’re too “out of it” to even take the oath of office? Or if they do, but are patently schitzoid or in such poor physical health that they can’t serve adequately, but insist on becoming POTUS anyway?

    RINO, I love it. Keep digging yourself in deeper NHS. You’re exactly why the republicans will continue going down if flames. With the brilliant RINO-bashing old-white-guy strategy you’re talkin’ about, Biden will beat the republicans with both hands tied behind his back, and we’ll get to joyfully listen to another four more years (in addition to the next four) of you guys crying in yor beer.

    But my money’s on Hillary.
