Joe Biden: I’d Pick Michelle Obama as
Running Mate ‘in a Heartbeat’

Original Article

Posted By: happywarrior, 4/21/2020 11:23:58 AM

Former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive Democrat presidential nominee, said he would undoubtedly select former first lady Michelle Obama to be his running mate, though he admitted she likely does not want to jump back into politics anytime soon. “I’d take her in a heartbeat,” Biden said in a Monday interview with CBS Pittsburgh when asked if he would add Obama to the ticket. “She’s brilliant. She knows the way around. She is a really fine woman. The Obamas are great friends.”

She's has no experience and not qualified to be President.

“I’d take her in a heartbeat.” The key word is “heartbeat.” How many will he be allowed after his supposed inauguration?

Maybe running with Biden could forever taint her with being a 'loser' on top of her track record as Moocher-in-Chief. More importantly, when did being 'first lady' (a lie - she's not a lady) ever become a qualification for the presidency? Didn't work for Hellary.

As if there was any doubt about what Obama's endorsement quid-pro-quo was. No matter. She's too stupid.

What a horrifying thought. She’s bamboozled millions of people, and I have never been able to understand the appeal. From the moment she came on the scene, I saw an angry woman who thought the world owed her. I’d love to know more about her law license, her high-paying job, and a lot of other things. But she is completely off limits and protected as a “woman of color.” Any questioning will be met with outraged cries of “racist” and “sexist.” My only hope is she’s too lazy and happy living the good life to consider it. We all know Joe wouldn’t last 3 months if elected.

More like, "She's stupid. She knows the way around the treasury to get more free vacations for her grifter family. She is a really whine woman. The Obamas are great friends, and will not hesitate to endorse me with self-serving conditions." Bring on those debates. The MAGA KAG team vs. the Delusional Low Info Voter team.

What kind of boxes are the DNC and Biden choosing to check? Black woman-check. Someone close to Obama-check. Will take over as President when I die a year into my term-check. The Dems are playing identity politics in order to regain power-forget any notion of helping the middle class or improving the economy. Too horrible to contemplate! The Dems need a Hail Mary play here but their track record for the past 3 1/2 years has absolutely no accomplishments, just abuses of power and fraud.

Why do the Dems need for their "real" Presidential candidate to be Biden's VP? Why not just get rid of Biden and pick him/her as the party nominee? Getting rid of Biden will be easy -- instruct the media to start running stories about the sexual assault allegation, the Ukraine corruption, and the China corruption. Within a week or two, Joe will drop out of the race "for health reasons."

My husband has been predicting this since the beginning of primary season. The plan is to force Biden to resign because of "health issues" and Moochie becomes president. Then we get eight more years of the Valjar administration. Let's hope this never comes to fruition.

What does that say about Joe Biden that he would need Michelle Obama in order to get votes. Democrats pushing Michelle Obama and his even considering someone who would overshadow him in the election shows how desperate the Democrats and Biden are to get votes. Usually the VP is an afterthought when it comes down to voting. However, in this case, people would be voting for Michelle Obama, not Joe Biden.

The letter was heartbreaking as it recounted the death of an 88-year-old woman in a New York nursing home. But it was also angry and accurate about a strange New York policy that is ­fatally wrongheaded. “I am wondering who will hold Gov. Cuomo accountable for the deaths of so many older people due to his reckless decision to place covid19 patients in nursing and rehabilitation homes,” the letter began. “I am writing as a daughter who lost her beautiful 88 year old mother who was receiving physical therapy at one such facility.”

Sen. Mitt Romney brushed off Democrats for complaining about the Senate’s decision to follow trial rules similar to those used during President Bill Clinton’s impeachment. Romney, 72, the junior senator for Utah and 2012 Republican presidential nominee, has been one of the few Senate Republicans to question President Trump’s behavior in the events that led to impeachment, but he claimed that Democrats have taken their protests too far. While speaking to CNN on Monday, the Utah senator criticized his Democratic colleagues for opposing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's version of the impeachment trial rules that were used during Clinton’s impeachment.

Earlier this week, Fox News’ Brit Hume suggested it’s time we consider lockdown policy as possibly being “a colossal public policy calamity.” Speaking to Shannon Bream on Fox airwaves Tuesday night, Hume discussed the disastrous side effects of stay-at-home orders adopted by nearly every state in the union, highlighting the irreparable harm done to the folks’ livelihood and savings, and the social toll the isolation has caused, particularly for children, who are at extremely low risk for novel coronavirus. To boot, emphasized Hume, it’s unclear how effective lockdown policies have actually been, especially when compared to other, more sustainable mitigation strategies.

I'm "social distancing." I stay away from people. I do it voluntarily. There's a big difference between voluntary -- and force. Government is force. The media want more of that. "Ten states have no stay-at-home orders!" complains Don Lemon On CNN. "Some governors are still refusing to take action!" Fox News' host Steve Hilton agreed. "Shut things down! Everywhere. That includes Utah, Wyoming..." But wait a second. People in Utah and Wyoming already socially distanced just by living there. Why must Utah and Wyoming have the same stay-at-home rules as New York? I find it creepy how eager some people are for authorities to boss us around.

Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said a “chunk of money” will be designated in the next coronavirus stimulus bill to enable the American people to vote by mail. When asked about Senate Intelligence Committee confirming U.S. intelligence agencies conclusion that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election, Pelosi said, “Well, I’m not surprised. As a member of the Gang of Eight, I watched this whole investigation proceed.” She continued, “It leads you to the question about what does Vladimir Putin have on President Trump personally, politically, financially, in every way?”

Staring down the coronavirus's effect on their budgets, states like New Jersey and Illinois are calling on federal leaders to backstop public pensions as part of future coronavirus relief. Democratic leaders in those states are pushing the federal government for billions in funding to shore up underfunded public pensions. Democrats in Congress have made bailouts for state and local governments a major priority for the next round of coronavirus stimulus, even allowing a major small business loan program to run dry as Republicans refused to package a renewal with more cash for states.

Don't be surprised if some people mistake COVID-19 outbreak maps with those election outcome maps. The virus has killed more than 46,000 Americans and is expected to claim 20,000 more by August. But it’s hitting certain areas far harder than others. Of the 10 states with the highest number of deaths per 100,000 residents, only two voted for President Donald Trump in 2016, and one of those was Michigan, which had been voting Democratic until Trump flipped it. At the other end of the spectrum, of the 10 states with the lowest death rates, only one (Hawaii) voted for Hillary
