Biden For President? – Wingin’ It Wednesday
On this week's edition of "Wingin' It Wednesday", panelist Mike Stagg, Warren Caudle, and Carol Ross joined "Mornings with Ken and Bernie" to discuss President Obama's call for bi-partisan cooperation at his inauguration address, as well as the possibility of Vice President Joe Biden running for President in the future.
Here's what the panel had to say:
1. Monday President Obama in a unity plea to politicians and the nation at large, called for collective action to confront challenges. Do you think he stands a chance of achieving bi-partisan cooperation on any front?
Carol Ross started us off:
Collective action, that means "do it my way" - translation. It's not going to happen if he continues to use divisive rhetoric as he did in his last press conference and as I could tell he did at the inauguration, I didn't watch it.
I listened to Mark Levin last night and he was rerunning excerpts from Reagan's 1981 inaugural address, what a contrast. The stark contrast between a great leader with a vision to lead the country, and a hack, Chicago, left-wing politician; playing to the lowest instincts in everyone.
Obama proved to me that anyone can be president, but not everyone can be a great leader.
Warren Caudle added:
The problem with posing that question this morning is it actually caused me to go to youtube and watch part of the speech. That was the first inauguration speech that I've watch since 1981. What we did Monday was we basically started the 4th George W. Bush term. There hasn't be 2.8 cents worth of difference between the two. The only difference is we got a few good Supreme Court Justices out of Bush, and that's huge.
The big thing Obama put out was about collectiveness, coming together rather than individualism. I was waiting for him to come out with the term "compassionate conservative". It was a military speech, left, right, left, right. It was a typical State of the Union Address, "let's make everybody feel good".
Mike Stagg countered:
I would say as long as there's a right wing entertainment industry that depends on lies and distortion for their income there will not be bipartisanship and cooperation. My question to the conservatives today is when are you going to stop lying to your constituents. When is the truth going to matter? The lies are, "Obama the foreigner", "Obama with the death panel". "Clinton having Vince Foster killed". All these lies cause you have no policies, and your policies got rejected in the election. Y'all have already caved on the debt ceiling, y'all are going to cave on other policies too.
2. Joe Biden for President in 2016? Do you think it's possible? He's hinted some interest.
They took office on like what, Monday? And the speculation already started. They were taking polls the day after the election. Who cares? Maybe he'll be president of the "Hairplug of America" group.
He's 69 right now, he'll be 73. A lot can happen in 4 years. Who knows. I guess Bobby Jindal is the only person actively campaigning for the job right now. Where is he today? I don't know.
That would be interesting, a Bobby and Biden race. What a sleeper.
I think this is probably something that was put out by the right-wing Republican party. The emails already started. I think I've already got one saying "We've got to give money to stop Biden".
How many people are going to be running in 4 years? 60 or 70 are going to start, and you're going to wind up with Jindal and Biden?
Obviously this all started as a gaffe by Biden during the private swearing in ceremony. He accidentally said "President" instead of "Vice President". That would be another one of his legendary gaffes.
Anyone can be president. Obama has proven it. Anyone can be president if the mainstream media is covering for every larcenist, crazy idea that you have.
