Joe Biden suggested on Tuesday that the Obamas would be appointed to high office if he were elected in 2020, telling voters the former first lady could be his running mate, while her husband was destined for the Supreme Court, provided he wanted the appointment. The former vice president made the promise during a campaign town hall in Iowa, where he was asked by a voter if he would consider appointing Obama to the Supreme Court. “Yeah, I would, but I don’t think he’d do it,” Biden said in response. “He’d be a great Supreme Court justice.” When the voters clarified that he had not stipulated which member

This was posted on FB a couple of weeks ago. Commenters went wild saying that Obama can't be appointed because he has no law license. Accurate commenters could not convince them that he doesn't need one to be on the SCOTUS.

Plugs Biden knows he can't get there on his own... Even his former boss refuses to give him a recommendation... This pathetic desperate attempt to ride the obama's coattails - in SPITE of their abject rejection - is frankly sad and embarrassing.... It would be if he was capable of feeling embarrassed.

So I guess Bernie is out after 'Come on Man,' Joe gets the nod. Bernies children crusade still thinks Bernie will win the nomination, but they are going to get yet another lesson in how rats work. After all Bernie is 'independent' so the rats really don't owe him anything, except another pay off. My guess is once the amount is decided on, health reasons will force Bernie to bow out.

No corruption here - LOOK, a Black Woman! Her name's Obama! Vote for meeeeeee! (and her.) And...they WILL come. Question is - will there be enough? Have we lost the greater half of this country?

I have a different take on Crazy Joe: he's retired with nothing else to do, he's an empty suit, and he's just having fun with people who give a damn. Think about it ... all he has to do is to sit back and create outlandish thoughts, then speak them, knowing he has seriously antagonized hundreds (or maybe dozens) of gullibles -- what fun!

Last week when it was announced that Alan Dershowitz was joining President Trump’s legal team, I warned in these pages that his complex argument in the alternative, in which he claims that even if proven what Democrats allege regarding Ukraine does not rise to the level of impeachment, was ripe for mischaracterization. The news media has not disappointed on that score. (Snip) Yesterday the deceptive coverage of Dershowitz got even worse. Alan Dershowitz, one of President Trump's defense lawyers, argued that anything a president does to get re-elected could be considered in the nation's interest and is therefore not impeachable.https://t.co/ptlmibuTni — The New York Times (@nytimes) January 29, 2020

U.S. President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser John Bolton changed his tune on how he felt about the commander-in-chief’s July 25 call with his Ukrainian counterpart after he was fired from his White House post. While Bolton claims he resigned in early September 2019, Trump said he fired him. On August 27, 2019, Bolton described Trump’s July 25 phone conversations with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) as “very warm and cordial calls” and acknowledged that corruption poses a significant problem for Ukraine. However, Bolton’s story changed after Trump allegedly fired him.

Mahatma Gandhi, who was just a teenager at the time, hadn’t told his parents where he was going; if they had found out, they would have been shocked to death.

On impeachment, Mitt Romney has thrown a spanner in the works. What looked like a speedy scrapping of the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump, premised on Democrats beclowning themselves, is now on hold. Romney says that John Bolton's "bombshell" about a supposed Ukrainian aid-for-investigation quid pro quo is so significant it merits calling Bolton as a witness in the Senate impeachment trial, just as Democrats have been calling for, though not enough to call him in at the House. According to the Associated Press: WASHINGTON (AP) — It’s Mitt Romney’s big moment, again. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee has for a year been a

You’ve got to hand it to the Democrats -- they can hold their caucus together for the flimsiest of causes. The GOP, though, has all these RINOs who have to establish their independence; they’re willing to break party unity when it serves their own ambitions. Three senators – Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine, and Mitt Romney of Utah – are rumored to be willing for witnesses to be called in the impeachment trial now underway in the Senate. Obviously, such a slowdown benefits the Democrats, who want the impeachment to headline news reports as long as possible.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) made a bizarre announcement at a campaign stop in Iowa last Sunday, telling the crowd that, when she selects her cabinet, she’ll only consider candidates for the Secretary of Education who have taught in public schools, and the final candidate will only take office after passing an interview with a “young trans person.”One of the attendees at Warren’s weekend stop in Cedar Rapids asked the Massachusetts Senator and hopeful 2020 Democratic presidential nominee whether she would support more education on LGBT and transgender issues for school-aged children. In response, Warren suggested that LGBT and transgender issues

Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden this week reaffirmed his desire to have former first lady Michelle Obama be his running mate. “I sure would like Michelle [Obama] to be the vice president,” Biden said Tuesday at a campaign stop in Muscatine, Iowa. The comment came after the former vice president was asked if he would consider nominating former President Barack Obama to the Supreme Court. “Yeah, I would, but I don’t think he’d do it. He’d be a great Supreme Court justice,” Biden responded.(Snip) Biden responded: “They’re both incredibly qualified people and they’re such decent, honorable people.” The pairing would be a first

CNN's Don Lemon giggled like a schoolgirl as panelists Rick Wilson and Wajahat Ali mocked President Trump's supporters as a bunch of illiterate hillbillies. Lemon, who is the defendant in a scandalous sexual assault case, was dishing about Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's dustup with an NPR reporter who reportedly could not find Ukraine on a map. "[Pompeo] also knows deep within his heart that Donald Trump couldn't find Ukraine on a map if you had the letter U and a picture of an actual physical crane next to it," Wilson said. "He knows that this is, you know, an administration defined by ignorance of the world.

There's a great line from the movie I, Robot that often springs to mind when it comes to politicians. (snip) "You are the dumbest smart person I know!" "Dumbest smart person" should be engraved on an award. Mitt Romney and the three other Republicans considering calling witnesses in President Trump's impeachment trial would be the final four. Clearly, Romney, Collins, Murkowski, and Alexander are all smart people. They're successful. They've managed to get elected to the Senate. Romney himself is a near-billionaire in his own right. But they are willfully blind to the obvious-to-everyone-else tactics of the Democrats.

Mitch McConnell set up the rules for the Senate’s current impeachment hearing so that there would be an early vote on whether to call witnesses, or simply proceed to an up or down vote on impeachment. Either way, the result is foreordained, just as the impeachment process itself was foreordained when the Democrats captured the House in 2018. The president will be exonerated. The vote on whether to proceed with witnesses apparently will take place on Friday. I assume that McConnell thought it would be easy to get 51 votes in favor of terminating the Senate proceeding, but John Bolton’s ill-timed and ill-advised tell-all book
