But he is in all the Bloomberg ads!!!

He endorsed me. I told him I wasn't running but he keeps having his PR people send me ads to approve. I'm like "No Barack, I'm happiest running the global economy from the shadows."

Maybe because Biden won't STFU about him they just assume that who he's endorsing.

60% of the people should not be allowed to vote.

So 26% of people think Obama endorsed Republican Mayor Stop-and-Frisk and 25% of people think that Obama endorsed Joe Biden, whom Obama told not to run because he'd only embarrass himself.

Obviously the biggest problem with both the Sanders and the Warren campaigns is that they assume Americans are a whole lot smarter than they actually are.

They actually had a poll for that? For if somebody endorses a candidate?

Warren is pulling the same little sneaky from when Obama appointed her the head of a consumer commission of some kind.

To be fair, Bloomberg probably paid those people to say that.

If 60% of people thought, Donnie* would not be president.

If only there was some way for Barack to announce to a large group of people that he hasn't

Hes the last Democratic President. Hes the first African American President. Hes got extremely high approval in some of the core voting blocks like Black Women.

Of course people are going to poll for that.

All kidding aside, the last I heard, he will support "whichever Democrat gets the nomination"

So like the rest of us, he is waiting until the nomination is made to really throw support.

And this is sensible.  Because if Obama endorsed ANY candidate right now, it would unfairly skew the primary race to that person's favor.  And that totally counters the will of the voters.

Also the Biden and Bloomberg campaigns' central message is basically "well, Barack Obama and I..."

Dear Mr. Obama, sir
Your fellow Democrats would like to know how you'll be voting
(It's quiet uptown) dear Mr. Obama, sir
John Adams doesn't stand a chance, so who are you promoting?
(It's quiet uptown) Warren or Bern, Warren or Bern ? we know it's lose-lose
Warren or Bern ? but if you had to choose
Dear Mr. Obama, sir
Joe Biden doesn't stand a chance, so who are you promoting?
But if you had to choose...

Yeah, we should let the elites pick someone for us.

They don't.


Unfortunately the vinn diagram of people that don't vote and people I wish didn't vote don't overlap much

There is nothing in the Constitution or 22nd ammendement disqualifying Obama from being serving as Vice President.

Just saying...

Probably because they saw/heard that TV spot I heard this morning in which Obama soundbites are being used to talk up Biden and how great he is.

If I didn't know how this shiat works, I'd think it was an endorsement. And you know, he might end up endorsing Biden officially. (shrug)

I don't know about that but even so, why would he want to? He already had to clean up his republican predecessor's mess once, why would he want to do it again x1,000?

more than 60% of people are stupid, so I cant disagree.
