Why President Obama chose Joe Biden for his running mate
As Vice President Joe Biden continues to make one gaffe after another, many (presumably, democrats included) are probably wondering now why President Barack Obama chose Biden as his running mate.
Short answer: insurance against impeachment and assassination.
Should something happen to Obama, whether he dies or is removed from office, would you want to see this country run by Vice President Biden?
Yes, Biden can be funny, but it amazes me how the media depicts him as comical and endearing while crucifying then-Vice President Dan Quayle for mis-correcting the spelling of potato (a teacher had given him an answer key with potato misspelled as “potatoe”; Quayle, though an attorney, readily admits in his autobiography Standing Firm that spelling has never been his best subject).
If something should happen to both Obama and Biden, the next in line would be House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
When will we get our country back? When conservatives quit apologizing for being conservatives.
