Oh, my, my, my!
What a wonderful and glorious political week we have had!
Barack Obama and David Axelrod have invented a brand new game called “Hidin’ Biden”.
You have to love it. After a week full of miscues that would have thrown the Obama campaign off message–if they actually had a message–Vice President Joe Biden got sent home to Delaware to stew for a while. That would be funny enough, except that the White House released the announcement and actually titled it “Daily Guidance for the Vice President”.
Whoops! Sounds like poor old Uncle Joe got spanked!
You just can not make that stuff up, and the Democrats are like the gift that keeps on giving this week..!
And, as it turns out, my musings from yesterday were not quite on target…
I speculated that John McCain may have made toxic the notion of replacing Biden with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Certainly that is what the Obama campaign would like us all to believe. It did make sense to me, because Obama can never admit to making a mistake, especially publicly, and liberals across the nation recoiled at the idea of “taking VP advice” from McCain.
But apparently Axelrod and company DID try to recruit Hillary to replace Biden, and she shot them down!
I guess that the thought of attaching her political fortunes to someone like Barack Obama didn’t give her the warm fuzzies. I still think it would have been really bad for us if she had accepted Obama’s offer, and that it could have been her best chance at becoming president in 2016, but–assuming they won this year–who can blame her for balking at the prospect of having to run on Obama’s dismal record?
Two members of the Obama campaign shot down in flames! Shall we go for three..?
The coup de gras for Obama’s political week came in the form of Jim Messina. Obama’s campaign manager has made overtures to the Romney campaign that almost certainly resulted in explosive laughter throughout the Romney/Ryan campaign headquarters:
THAT, my friends, is pretty pathetic!
They will do anything to keep from talking about the real issues in this election, and Romney’s selection of Paul Ryan as his Vice President has them freaking out and shedding hair (except for Axelrod; he already shed his).
If I were the one writing Romney’s press release to respond, it would look something like this:
The Democrats are damned dangerous to this country, and Obama has been a complete disaster…
But never let it be said that they don’t provide us with comic relief!
