#1 Methinks its safe to say that NOVEMBER 2012 ELECTIONS = "ELECTING A VEEP/VPOTUS" AFTER ALL???
Although certain MSM-Net Pundits believe that Romney's pro-Iran War stance is contrary to Ryan's economics-based domestic focii, IMO IT INFERS THAT THE US = A POTUS MITTENS? IS ANTICIPATING US, GLOBAL ECON MORASS IN PARALLEL WID US-LED WAR AGZ IRAN ANDOR US TROOPS [US-NATO] BEING SENT TO FIGHT IN AFRICA. POTUS Bammer bought the troops home from AFPAK so that a POTUS Romney could send 'em out again.
The US is the "tip-of-the spear" in setting up OWG-NWO = [proto]SPACE GOVT-ORDER, + ITS N-O-T DONE OR COMLETED YET.

As said or inferred before, iff Perts are correct about the intensification of SOLAR ACTIVITIES = GWCC, DON'T BE SO QUICK TO CRITICIZE THE MUSLIM BURQUA, OR GET RID OF YOUR MOM'S OR GRANDMA'S OLD, "ANTIQUE/QUAINT" HEAD SCARVES BECAUSE YOUSE + DESCENDANTS WILL BE WEARING THEM SOON ENUFF FOR YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE + SURVIVAL.

#3 Vice President Biden will be an effective foil against GOP vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan
Biden has hoof-in-mouth disease. Somehow his brain disengages before his mouth works. Guiliani said that Biden hasn't ever been bright enough to be President.
I was just looking as Facebook this a.m. Judging from the comments there are quite a few liberal young people (18-30) who still buy the whole Obama Team schtick of hope, change, lies and damned lies--they are still believing the B.S. If they vote, there is little doubt for whom they will vote. It was depressing to see the gullibility of this group of otherwise nice young people. Must be the Kool Aid.
#4 I'm sure they are when the moderator/ref is in their court. As they say, 'the fix is in'. Then again, the stupid ass campaign manager who agreed to any debates which have always been orchestrated by the the apparatchiks of the Left is without question working for the other side at worst or at best an unqualified old school RINO still living in the 1970s.

#13 I agree with EC that it is not too late to purposefully gaffe Biden into retirement and go to the bullpin. It does open a few questions so late in the campaign, as opposed to being in front of the Republican choices:
Benching Joe the Ice Cream Biden after a serious of follies may open the case against any policy Biden has been in support of.
Is it really in Hillary!s best interest to accept such a position? Would her chances of becoming president be better after an Obama or Romney presidency?
In order to make the transition, they will find a medical reason; that is if they can find a suitable replacement - no pun, Hillary! has been set up for failure after failure by Team O for five years now, what's she gonna do go be veep while O and Mr. Bill back pat each other during occasionals.

#14 Biden has hoof-in-mouth disease
Maybe. Or maybe he cultivates that as a cover for saying what his sponsor Pelosi and he want said, with impunity.
Remember, for instance, the gay marriage comment, pushing Obama into a public stance that Pelosi wanted and Obama wanted to straddle.

#15 If Biden were to be replaced it would naturally be a health issue. That's the only way to avoid saying he was a mistake in the first place. Still, its too late for that now. It would reek of desperation. Better to brass it out and hope that he provides some kind of gravitas to the ticket in some folks minds.

#16 "Is it really in Hillary!s best interest to accept such a position? Would her chances of becoming president be better after an Obama or Romney presidency?"
I think the question should rather be: Are her chances better after an Obama presidency if she's the VP or if she's not.
If Obama wins it and she's not VP, she'll face fresh challengers. As a VP she'd be seen as the "natural" successor. She will use her 4 years to appear "presidential", but not be responsible for Obama's failures.
If Obama totally screws up in the first two years, she can still check out and present herself as the better alternative.
I don't buy into "Hillary is tired and has given up her ambitions".

#17 @Mullah Richard
Biden could still have a "heart attack" after that countdown, bringing back an oh so reluctant Hillary sacrificing herself.
Hillary can live with Biden being VP, but NOT with any other VP who would challenge her in 4 years.
