Barack Obama Dismisses Palin’s Suggestion to Dump Joe – Will Keep Biden on Ticket

Sarah Palin told Obama to dump Joe Biden yesterday.

Barack Obama defended Joe Biden yesterday for his outrageous racial remarks. He also told reporters that he will keep Joe on the ticket despite calls (from Sarah Palin) to dump him.
FOX News reported, via Free Republic:

President Obama defended Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday against criticism of his remarks that Republican repeal of Wall Street regulations would put voters “back in chains.”

Obama also brushed off Sarah Palin’s suggestion on Fox News that he drop Biden from the ticket in favor of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee and a Fox News contributor, had said Biden’s comments are the latest example of how he “really drags down that ticket.”

“If that’s not the nail in the coffin, really, the strategists there in the Obama campaign have got to look at a diplomatic way of replacing Joe Biden on the ticket with Hillary,” Palin said. “And I don’t want to throw out that suggestion and have them actually accept the suggestion because then an Obama-Hillary Clinton ticket would have a darn good chance of winning.”

But Obama, in an interview with “Entertainment Tonight,” downplayed Palin’s comments.

“We don’t spend a lot of time worrying about the chatter and the noise and this and that,” he said. “The country isn’t as divided with gaffes or some stray remark as Washington is. Most folks know that’s just sort of a WWF wrestling part of politics. It doesn’t mean anything, just fills up a lot of air time.”

He also said in an interview with People magazine that Biden’s remarks meant consumers would be worse off if Republicans succeeded in doing away with new restraints on financial institutions.

    Isn’t Sarah wonderful? She knows how to pull their chains.

    Oh, wait. Is that racist?

  • Finncrisp

    Barry and Joe were made for each other. Barry is the ultimate narcissist; Joe the career hack just happy to be on the public dole and have walking around money. Very complimentary to each other. Bad for America – let’s just dump both of them.

    Between Gov. Palin’s statement about protecting Paul Ryan and hoping the gop protects him and did not protect her, and now thinking that hillary clinton (slept her way to the top)would be an improvement over biden, I think I’m leaving the fan club of Gov. Palin.

    No, absolutely do not keep suggesting they replace Biden with Hillary! If that happens the election will assuredly go to the Dems.

  • Diane Valencen

    When Sarah Palin runs for a national office, wins and completes a full term then and only then will I have any need to give weight to her opinons.

  • Shailey Tremain

    Palin is spot on. . .Obama knows she is right. . .Biden is a dope. . .

    Best part is that Palin lives in Obama’s head. . .and hopefully this remark will force President Zero to double down on Plugs Biden. . . Very smart Sarah. . . Force obama’s hand to not make a change and keep Joe. . .

    Speaking of Dopey Biden

    Here is a courageous person. . . a small business Owner in Radford Virginia who said NO to Biden using his business as a photo op stop. . .,0,4370357.story

    Calling all fellow citizens to go and support his new business if possible. Show Chris McMurray we have his back. Crumb and Get It!

    In the interview he mentioned Obama’s “You didn’t Build that” remark.

    I only wish he added that he is following Nancy Reagan’s advice
    Just Say No to Dope!

    Obammy says: I really need Joe to show everybody how smart I am (compared to him).

    Sarah Palin is beginning to act out the script. Former V.P Dick Cheney was right after all that she was not a vice-presidential material and it does echo loud and loud and louder with all the statements and rhetoric from Sarah Palin with a focus on ”Replacing Biden with Hillary Clinton”.
    Before Biden became vice-president, he was the longest serving senator and in-fact he was into his 7th senate term when he ditched for the V.P Slot in 2008. I think more of a vice president with such precedence.
    Vice President Joe Biden and President Obama complement very well….they seem good and ready for another 4 years together…..the talk of Hillary Clinton is just a W.W.F wrestling discussion” It is a suggestion that one puts forward when in the midst of hulk hogan and the others in the ring…….steering and cooking up fights.

    President’s words/reaction: ”these talks just fills up a lot of air time.”

  • Tim in Cali

    Headline :”Palin paints Barry into a corner”

    He’s stuck with the crazy drunken fool now

    If he dumps Joe now…

    “Obama agrees with Palin and returns the Idiot back to his Village”

  • Militant conservative

    Madam Diane, I did not vote

    For the VP moron. You did.

    People like you have put

    America in great danger due

    To YOU not doing your due

    Diligence and constitutional

    duty to be well informed.

  • Amjean

    Don’t some of you folks get it?

    By having Palin give the suggestion, there was no way that Obama could replace Biden
    with Hillary without looking like a fool for following her “orders”.

    Since Obama is tanking in the polls and so many dems are starting to despise the man,
    his campaign would get a much needed boost if he added Hillary.

    Now he really can’t. Brilliant strategy.

  • Stonedome

    Excellent…put the Obama team on defense and make them answer for everything they say from now until November…who cares if the answer will be propaganda? they have to spend the time and money doing it, at no cost to Palin

  • snap boy

    But if Joe resigns for “personal reasons” then Obama wouldn’t have to admit he made a mistake picking him to begin with and could still pretend loyalty.

  • Adi


    Exactly. The Wohn right now is stuck with The Idiot.

  • Militant conservative

    Oh I got the use of narcissist

    Tendencies against Obama.

    Now his psychological disease

    will not allow him to back
