From the Weekly Standard– amidst speculation that Joe “Gaffe Machine” Biden has been having far too many Joe-moments, we bring you today’s schedule. (on the jump…)
We know Biden is not doing the ticket any favors.
So is it time to bring on Hillary–though she and Bill can’t stand the Obama’s and the Obama’s can’t stand the Clinton’s either…but for the sake of power a Democrat will do just about anything. Or is this just a sit down and straighten out Joe kind of a day?[Update on the jump]
10:15AM THE PRESIDENT and THE VICE PRESIDENT receive the Presidential Daily Briefing
10:45AM THE PRESIDENT and THE VICE PRESIDENT meet with Secretary of State Clinton
12:30PM THE PRESIDENT and THE VICE PRESIDENT meet for lunch
Private Dining Room
There is speculation that Obama already asked Clinton if she wanted the job a few weeks back an she declined to be tied to the Anchor that is Obama 2012.
So why the meeting? Looks like they are sending Joe home for a little vacation. Just at the moment when Team O was looking to make the ‘Do you really want Paul Ryan one heart-beat away from the presidency” argument, Joe Biden went on a days-long bender demonstrating why no one in their right, (center), and perhaps even left mind, would want Joe Biden one heart-beat away from the Presidency.
Another narrative bites the dust.
So Joe isn’t out. He’s out to lunch, and by all reports on a short leash until further notice.
