VP Joe Biden sure has it rough. He has come to realize that to most of the country he is a joke, and his own party has no intention of appointing him as Obama’s heir apparent. The Democrat Party has a specific plan in mind — Black Radical Leftist, Then Woman Radical Leftist, Then Hispanic Radical Leftist– and there’s no room for a bumbling old white guy in their plans. This has reportedly left him feeling somewhat bitter and left out.
“I’ve been told Biden is depressed, despondent, and very resentful of how he has been treated by key figures within the administration. The party is telling him he won’t have their support if he runs for president. He was promised this support years ago by the Obama team. The problem is, the Obama brand has become poison to Democrats and people like Valerie Jarrett have made it clear how little they regard the Vice President. He’s out there trying to help raise money for the 2014 midterms, hoping that will lead to some donations for his own 2016 campaign, but that isn’t going to happen. Biden is being used, laughed at, and then pushed aside, and he’s finally starting to realize that, and it’s got him very upset. For some reason, it seems he really thought he would some day be president. I can’t help but feel sorry for the guy.”
And unlike Hillary, Joe Biden can’t resign and pretend he had nothing to do with the massive failure that — despite Paul Krugman’s protests to the contrary — is the Obama Administration.
The Obama White House, apparently, also treats Biden like an old fool and has gone out of their way to marginalize him.
Following the 2012 Election though, Biden’s role within the Obama White House has been increasingly marginalized to the point members of the president’s staff are now openly dismissive of the Vice President, often referring to him as “the old guy”a designation that is said to have originated from Barack Obama himself on the 2008 campaign trail.
Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett simply calls Joe Biden, “that clown.”
