Apparently Joe Biden can’t make up his mind about what to do after his term as the 47th Vice President of the United States of America is over. He’s either going to run for President (again for the third time) or he’s going to run for a spot on the county council in New Castle, Delaware.
Firstly, before the late election ended, Biden hinted that he was considering a third run for President in 2016. He ran for the Democrat nomination in 1988 and 2008, losing badly both times.
But after the election the VP backtracked a bit and joked that he’d more likely run for New Castle County Council. On the other hand, he also said that he’d make such decisions in 2016 after he’s helped Barack make a “success” out of his second term.
On Nov. 8, Biden told the Wilmington News-Journal that, “There’s plenty of time to think about 2016.”
“We’ve got to get this economy working. If three years from now the economy is not working, it’s not going to be worth doing much. This is all about making Barack an incredibly successful second-term president. That’s my focus.”
Um, didn’t he and Barack say that if they didn’t fix the economy in the first four years that they wouldn’t have deserved a second term? Oh, yeah. That.
One wonders if Biden is even qualified for any other office?
Biden then went on to tout the political aspirations of his eldest son, Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden. Apparently Joe is hoping for a political dynasty.
Naturally, Good Old Joe waxed folksy with another one of those “sayings” from his father.
“My dad used to have an expression. He said, ‘You know you’re a success when you look at your kid and realize he turned out better than you.’ He’s better than me in every score and I couldn’t be prouder,” Biden said.
I wonder what European politician from the 80′s Joe plagiarized that saying from?
