Obama to keep Joe Biden on for 2012 run

Vice President Joe Biden is on the 2012 re-election ticket, President Obama’s aides said Tuesday after a report that the campaign was looking to replace him with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The New York Post reported that Cuomo, who was elected governor in November 2010, is having a great year. Some in the state GOP even say he’d be an asset to the president.

    Whew, that was close. We can all rest easy, we’ve got Joe on the job! Name the five most capable on obama’s team? Name obama’s five biggest successes. I know these are difficult questions feel free to consult with anyone or scour the Internet. I have asked no less than two dozen people, many liberals, these questions and have never gotten ten answers. Spot them bin laden and often they say nothing for the latter question. Occasionally I get Hillary or panetta on the former; however, not once has anyone named Biden. Another laugher is when they talk about jobs saved or they tell me many of BHO s benefits will take years to be realized. Ha. Cancel comcast or you are helping fund Obama and supporting anti American sentiments.

    Joe Biden is a potted plant. What is his role exactly? What does he DO all day? He is there to be a shameless suck up to Obama. The man who took the office of President; a job that Joe publicly told him in the debates “did not lend itself to on-the-job-training” because he KNEW that Obama was a figure-head with NO experience whatsoever. Joe Biden is, and has been, killing time WASTING our time for way too long. He’s another hyper-partisan HACK who needs to go. They’ll BOTH be gone in the next election, God willing!

    Biden IS one of Obama’s failures. Actually it was his first failure.

    Wouldn’t be a better plan to get rid of Obama and whoever he picks for a running mate. Obama has been a detriment to our country since the day of his election and only an idiot or a glutton for punishment would re-elect him.

    I suppose this is a smart move by Obama. Getting rid of Biden would have been tantamount to a complete admission of failure on Obama’s part. Getting rid of Biden would have been fuel for the fire for any of Obama’s opponents as they would have bounced on it as one of Obama’s failures.
