Obama to replace Biden with Cuomo?

Post by Kaztronic » 07-04-2011 02:44 PM

We've seen reports of Joe Biden's demise several times now, but here comes a new angle. Personally, I think Biden has been a lousy VP, who is more often than not a negative distraction in the media. Still, I think it would be a bad idea because Governor Cuomo is just in to his job as Governor of New York, and while he is doing a remarkable job thus far - it's still early. Beyond that, frankly, our state could benefit from a few more years of his leadership (assuming he can keep this up against the eternally corrupt Albany machine) before we begin thinking about his next job.

Beyond saying stupid nonsense on TV?

Well, he is one of the few people in the Administration with clear ideas on foreign policy. Agree or disagree with those ideas, they seem less driven by politics than the Presidents. Further, he was actually making progress with the Republicans in working on that debt reduction deal - both sides admitted that much.

He seems to do a much better job when there isn't a camera or microphone present.

at least Biden gives us a chuckle once in a while, but he really is a liability.

I Disagree Biden knows his way around the Senate and Congress.... Cuomo knows his way around Mob bosses and Union leaders....Biden is basically the Obamaton`s Personal Lobbyist in congress NO WAY Cuomo gets that kinda respect......Cuomo is the Iron fist....Biden the Velvet glove and with a split congress the Iron glove WON`T work...

Hillary makes more sense..
  1. Sets her up nicely for 2016
  2. Attract female voters to counter Palin, Bachman, etc
  3. VP is vacation compared Sec. of State.
  4. Lots of press exposure (see item 1)
  5. Strong Chicago ties - already in the Good-ol-boy club (with a bigger pair than most members)
  6. Ditches Biden
  7. Coumo, really?
  8. Sets her up nicely for 2016 - she will be there, one way or another

Cuomo is a clone of his father. he was terrible and Jr. Is just as bad. The fact he can stand up and lie everyday of the week just burns my butt.

Even I would rather see Hillary. And I find her distasteful and disgusting.

I knew very little about him..had to wiki. Seems OK.. Born and bred pol. The worst I could find on him is that he is living in sin and cannot receive catholic rituals performed on him..heathen!:lol:

But only if he's the intended Dem nominee come 2016..that would be a wasted maneuver if not. We know Biden won't be..
