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.

    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. . .

    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!

  • Tomi

    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.”

  • 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.

  • well that settles it ….Biden is toast

  • jpmn

    #16 I was thinking exactly the same thing. Unless Biden actually dies before November, Slow Joe is a go.

    Of course when the Clintons are involved inconvenient people do suddenly pass away.

    Amjean, I get it!

    Sarah Palin was very clever by openly suggesting that Obama replace Biden with Hillary on the Democrat ticket. “the strategists there in the Obama campaign have got to look at a diplomatic way of replacing Joe Biden on the ticket with Hillary. 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 really, Joe Biden really drags down that ticket.”

    The “Hillary replaces Biden” concept has been talked about on Conservative blogs for months. There is a huge Hillary Fan Club, and an Obama/Hillary ticket would be difficult to defeat. Bloggers have been expecting any day now to see the announcement that Biden is suddenly unable to run because of serious health issues, or whatever, and Obama names Hillary as the Democrat VP candidate.

    But Sarah Palin headed the Dems off at the pass. Can you visualize the headlines?

    “OBAMA TAKES PALIN’S ADVICE , REPLACES BIDEN WITH HILLARY FOR VP”

    Really? The Dems admit to taking political advice from Sara Palin? Possible, yes, but not likely.

    Very clever, Sarah, if you’re watching.

  • Goodbye Darth Vader

    Boy, there are some real dunces posting on this thread. Palin has backed Obama into a corner and he can’t come out without looking weak and stupid. He’s always disrespecting her, as he does all women, and if he were to change to Hilary as VP, he’d have to give the nod to Palin. Obama’s so arrogant, he won’t do that. So he’s stuck with Joe Biden who is dragging the ticket down and unable to change cuz he’s not courageous enough to follow Palin’s suggestion.

    So many dunces who want to flick off Palin and don’t have the wit to recognize excellent political tactics.

  • Jerry C

    @ #7 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.”

  • Jerry C

    @ #25

    In addition, there’s no way a muslim would want to work side-by-side with a woman on a daily basis. Hence, why LUITPOS gave Hillary the Secretary of State position and shipped her off over seas.

    Maybe Diane Valencen will do the job and wear her burka like a good little dhimmi.

  • Spider

    I agree, I think this is Palin putting this out there to head Barry off at the pass.

    If he dumps Joe, as I believe was/is planned, Sarah was right!

    BTW, are you catching any of this Artur (no ‘H’) Davis? He’s fantastic, and a big thorn in dem sides.

  • MamaGriz68

    At first I couldn’t figure out why she would be trying to help BO, but now he can’t dump Joe for Hillary because Sarah would get the credit. Brilliant move I think.

  • Kissmygrits

    If ever the Zero Campaign had been thinkin’/plannin’ on dumping Joie for Shrillary, Sarah just cut them off at the pass. There’s no way they’ll do that now that she has called for it. The Won’s ego just won’t let him allow her to be correct on anything. She’s outplayed the DumBO again.

  • Rachelle

    I wondered why Sarah Palin made that suggestion on FOX News.

    Nobody should give Zero any good ideas.

    But since Sarah said it she may have succeeded in poisoning the proposition for 0. He certainly will not want to look as if he is taking her advice.

    She is very smart.

  • Brae

    Good. Keep slow witted, dense plugs. It’s better for us.

  • Restless

    I like Palin, but I’m the first to admit she’s made some missteps along the way. However, this was a brilliant political move on her part. She knows how much the Dems hate her. So, by saying this, it makes Obama dig his heels in and keep the blowhard Biden on the ticket.

  • owl

    Nope. Not buying.

    I posted my very first negative comments about Palin over this and I have always been a supporter. She is usually right. I wanted her for keynote speaker at convention. She has held on to her anti-Romney too long (like little ricky) and Mitt made a mistake by not using the opportunity to wipe it out and unite all.

    Do any of you really believe that Obama will backtrack any of his election plans because of something Sarah said about Joe? Same goes for Rudy. Love Rudy.

    If they decide the only way to win is to have Bill on the ticket, they will put Bill on the ticket. They have laid the groundwork (if needed at the last minute) so that we all have to say ‘poor Joe’ or be heartless. I call BS. They are writing this crap for ‘poor Joe’ and he is a team player to let Bill save the country. You have heard that Bill was the only one with a record of surplus?

  • mg4us

    Agree Palin headed Obama off at the pass abd boxed him in . . .next she should say, if Obama can’t have Hillary whose failed foreign policies of the State Department has caused us a mess in the Middle East and with Jews, then Obama might want to get Cuomo from NY (the son not the old man. . LOL!!!!)

    Here is a good piece on Obama. . .

    http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/08/obama_intellectually_exhausted_out_of_ideas_and_out_of_energy.html

    And like what they say about Ryan too:
    Paul Ryan represents everything that Obama and the Democrats will never be: intellectually fertile, economically and historically literate, unimpeachably rigorous and honest. And these are only Paul Ryan’s character virtues. His ideas and convictions are even better. And he’s the most likeable politician in town.

    Obama – – Out of Ideas, Out of Energy, Out of Touch and soon to be Out of Here!

    #13 Tomi. You are a pathetic fool. Dick Cheney is an individual who was second in command in the administrtrion that has left America with 8 thrilion dollar debt, two screwed, unfinished wars, fractured conservative movement and a demoralised Republican party.

    For such a guy to criticise the former Governor who has left Alaska with, perhaps, the highest budged surplus per capita in America’s history not to mention a booming economy is beyond ridicule.

    The Cheney’s rant proves that his once powerful intellect is imploding with the horryfying speed.

    Appart from this, his attack on Palin was a tactical move and one of many concocted by the Rebublican establishment to prevent her from challenging Romney at the convention.

    Is everybody that stupid? Palin Knows that Obama is toast with Biden, and probably with Clinton too. Palin has safeguarded against Obama picking Clinton by suggesting he do it. Almost demanding he do it. So, if Obama dumps Biden, he has done as suggested by Palin: she wins. If he doesn’t: Obama looses and: she wins. Pretty shrewd for a woman the msm says is so mentally deficient. Obama just may dump Biden though because he has about as much sense of shame as a male dog. Joe may want to “spend more time with his family” and all that ludicrous crappola.

    Getting elected time and again by a bunch of idiots from a Democrat controlled cesspool doesn’t make you qualified or competent to be in that job, especially majority leader,VP, and President of the United states. It’s American government not American Idol. How competent are Nancy Pelosi,Harry Reid,and Barack Obama?They are the holy triumvirate of Corruption,destruction,and incompetence.

    Who is the stupid one. You’re talking about crazy, bumbling Biden instead of Ryan and Mitt’s tax returns.Yea, crickets and tumbleweeds for another failed campaign attack platform. And the resentment still percolating from 2008 when Barack ran a thuggish campaign against Hilary should stir up some Democrat voters to walk away from this election. Divide and Conquer, it’s not just for Liberal fascists to wield.

    Keep talking Palin. You made millions from their attacks and you can smile all the way to the bank. Even better, you’re buzzing in their brains and they can’t get you out.

    1) First of all, you brilliant scholar, “what” isn’t spelled “waht”.

    2) Sarah Palin was a great pick…it was John McCain who handed the pimp the presidency, and, (as I’ve stated in previous posts, YOUR side counts the deceased, felons, illegals, numerous votes for the same person, and hire batoned, flak-jacketed *&#%@ thugs to intimidate voters.

    3) While our side works to find solutions to the abominable circumstances your side perpetrates, your ilk besmirches, ridicules, mocks and bloviates at ANY ideas that are put forth…just because it came from the opposition. Don’t 3 year olds do that??

    It’s only due to medical science and advancements (and an American mentality that we’re to care for those that are “challenged”), that you and your ilk have evolved and not been victims of
    eradication thru Darwinian principles. You spout your party’s bilge and pretend you’re enlightened.
    Don’t tell me…you hate Bush too??

    Sit back honey, and watch an eruption that will sure to frighten your side. I’m not foolish enough to say that WE WILL WIN (remembering your sides unscrupulous behavior), but you will be surprised that we’ve had crap crammed down our well mannered throats long enough, and our gloves are off. And whether you are personally involved or not, it’s sure to be an “E ticket” ride (for those of you who remember Disneyland of long ago)…tah tab

    Another thought – perhaps Obama is thinking of dumping Biden and installing Bill Clinton
    as VP candidate. Wouldn’t that be something?

    I don’t think Obama’s ego could handle Bill Clinton’s popularity with dems (assuming they still
    adore him), however, if you want to win the presidency, these folks will go to any lengths.

    I am unsure if Bill could legally do it however. I know he can’t run for another term as president,
    however, for VP, I do not know. Perhaps someone else does.

    #50 “Is everybody that stupid? Palin Knows that Obama is toast with Biden, and probably with Clinton too.”

    Yep. I must be.

    “Palin has safeguarded against Obama picking Clinton by suggesting he do it. Almost demanding he do it. So, if Obama dumps Biden, he has done as suggested by Palin: she wins. If he doesn’t: Obama looses and: she wins.”

    You must be kidding. Safeguarded? Obama obeys?

    “Pretty shrewd for a woman the msm says is so mentally deficient.”

    Well, I for one, have always sang her praises and named msm Professional Poop Scoopers.

    “Obama just may dump Biden though because he has about as much sense of shame as a male dog. Joe may want to “spend more time with his family” and all that ludicrous crappola.”

    If you do not fear Bill’s surplus being the campaign issue, I’ll try. If you are Obama, had you rather campaign on stealing $700 billion from granny or the promise of Clinton’s surplus?

    My point………………………Obama will do what he must to get elected. Bill wants a foot into the WH. That is what Obama is thinking about. Bill’s foot-mouth-threat or trying to beat the $700 billion granny con. I do not want to make it easy for him to go with Bill’s surplus. I call BS on who is writing this crap for Biden to SAVE Obama’s hide. I suspect Bill.

    Why should we let Obama & Scoopers get by with this con if he decides on Bill’s mouth?

  • owl

    I am writing Bill/Hillary=same thing.

  • Mama Grizzly

    I see this differently.

    I think Obama will dump Biden for Hillary.

    Right now you have Obama (at least questionable in most people’s thinking) and Biden (ridiculous, too old in most people’s thinking) VS Romney and Ryan. Not too much of a contest.

    Enter Hillary. Perceived by many to be at least better than Biden, someone who SHOULD HAVE gotten the nomination in the first place in 2008, and NOW … (drum roll) … second in line and electable next round.

    Has everyone stopped puking yet?

    With Hillary IN, the entire game changes. You have a “nice guy” black and a female against two “out-of-touch-with-the-average-American” rich white guys–and whalaah! Magic. This is how they’ll frame it.

    And they’ll probably win with it. They’ll intrigue women of all races, they’ll get back the Dems who were mad in 2008, they’ll appeal to people who have been turned off somewhat by Obama who seems reckless, and go with a known commodity in Hillary. I’m sure this was the plan all along–Obama: “wait it out Hillary, your time is coming in just 4 short years.” And Obama shows himself to be “able to admit a change is needed” — oh how very humble of him . . .

    Okay, now I’M getting sick to my stomach.

    Obama, Biden, and Hillary know EXACTLY what they’re doing.

    Once again Sarah is brilliant. Divide and conquer. Hillary has millions of supporters that will want her on the ticket and be disappointed if she doesn’t replace Biden. Sarah also knows Hillary will not commit political suicide. Hillary took a big enough hit being Odumbo’s Secretary of State. There is no way she’ll destroy her chances in 2016 by running as VP to the worst President in modern history.

  • J

    Perhaps I did not express myself correctly. One of the things I admire about Pres. Bush is is strength. He looked to no one to protect him and did not dwell in bitter retrospect. Mccain never got over whatever slights he perceived any republican/conservative might have given him. I never liked mccain. Ryan and Romney seem to be strong men who take care of themselves and look foward to fixing a problem, not living in the past. I think Gov. Palin is bitter and living in the past and she does women no service when she complains about needing to be protected. I just don’t like that.
    As for Gov. Palin’s mention of hillary….forgive me. I live in a very liberal state surrounded by women who admire hillary and yet can’t name one of her achievements, attained on her own merit. Other times I have heard Gov. Palin claim to admire her. I just can’t see hillary as anyone to be admired.

  • AuntieMadder

    owl and others: Do you actually believe that Kenya Boy, no one in his campaign nor any member of the DNC ever thought of replacing Biden with Hillary before Palin suggested it on Greta van Susteren’s program the other night? Really?

    Bill Kristol of the Weekly Standard wrote about it May 28, 2012. http://www.weeklystandard.com/articles/why-not-best_645186.html
    And again on July 13.
    http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/romney-rice-vs-obama-clinton_648501.html
    Jay Cost beat him to it back on May 22.
    http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/obama-needs-hillary-she-doesnt-need-him_645744.html

    That;s just one online news site out of hundreds (thousands?). Bloggers have written about replacing Biden with Hillary, both for and against (Hillbuzz comes to mind first). Readers of news sites and blogs have written about it, too, both for and against, in their/your posted comments. I know there were comments posted here at GP in which regular readers of this site long ago predicted, or shared fears of, a KenyaBoy/Hillary 2012 ticket two and even three years ago. We all know that the current regime pays a squadron of flying monkeys to troll conservative blogs and news sites, this one definitely included. So, even if the strategists at the DNC and at his reelection campaign hadn’t already thought of dumping Biden for Hillary, an idea that you can bet they’ve long since considered and rejected, the flying monkeys would have reported having read about it.

    So, please, chill. Palin didn’t come up with any winning idea for Kenya Boy’s reelection that millions of others, including the DNC and reelection strategists, haven’t already thought of and shared publicly on the ‘Net. She simply took ownership of the idea by “suggesting” it publicly on a national program on a cable news station. (Doing what she did even as she surely had to know that a segment of conservative voters wouldn’t get it and would, therefore, accuse her of being a turncoat and so on – basically, taking one for the team, makes this one of her ballsiest moves yet.)
