I don't have an issue saying that.

But you are smart enough to understand what he was saying. Daily Caller type folks don't have that advantage.

Alright, this is what we voted for, so it's time to admit it and deal with it. Biden is a gaffe machine, and we are in for four years of him being a rhetorical minefield.

What he clearly meant was that when he was veep, he and Obama had an agreement where he would make an excuse and walk away if they reached a fundamental impasse on governing philosophy. And it'll be the same with him and Harris.

I know that's what he meant. You know it. His Republican enemies know it. But he walked right into that rake, and now we have to deal with the fallout.

We'd best get used to it, because this is gonna keep happening.

I disagree. I understood him just fine. The VP serves at the pleasure of the President and politely gets out of the way if needed. It has always been understood to be the case. If people are dumb I don't have to agree with them.

The VP does not "serve at the pleasure of the President" like a political appointee.

Facepalm, subby?

Just a heads up... You aren't related to a Nigerian prince, chucklenuts.
 
2020-12-05 10:49:16 AM  
He needs to serve for 2 years so we can have 10 years of Harris (or of Dem control)

You can read that two different ways.

I'm fine with both interpretations.

Moving along....

Back in the day, the VP was the presidential runner-up.

The VP does not serve the president.

Some of the commenters are accusing the source of irresponsible editing. It is the Daily Caller which is not the most reliable source. Is there non-DC footage of the wider conversation?
 
2020-12-05 11:42:29 AM  
Unlike Trump, Biden is saying he knows how to deliberate with his Administration to reach consensus and delegate when possible.

But hey let's pull out one phrase and make it something it's not amiright?

Anyone who tries to laugh at or scream about some innocuous gaff Biden makes is most likely a Trump supporter - you can just whip out any of literally thousands of tweets and utterly idiotic, clueless and outright dumb statements made by Trump that was met with silence from those same idiots.  Hell, just show them a pic of Trump and say "fark off."

This is like how right-wingers biatch about Democrat hypocrisy when any Democrat politician anywhere as much as farts and "liberals" are "silent" on the matter

Ok, but I dont think you understood me. Maybe I need to clarify.

I said what he said was clear. I'm saying he gaffes and says shiat that is open to misinterpretation, and his enemies are going to exploit it. So we need to get used to that happening, and be ready for it.

Yep.  Biden was the VP at the time, not the Pres.  The President isn't the one to walk away.

No, you were clear on that and that is how I understood you.

I'm saying it wasn't a gaffe. He conveyed a clear message; "If there are any disputes between the VP and P, the P has final say. If the VP doesn't like it she can leave, but the President is the boss."

I'd also say that no matter what words he chooses, on any subject he speaks on, his words will be misinterpreted by his enemies in order to exploit those stupid enough not to know better. People who know better shouldn't help them do that.

It's a nothing burger. Don't try to make a big thing of it. It doesn't even reach 3 microTrumps worth of absurdity.

If by "rake" you mean the utter morons at the Daily Caller desperately trying to use a minor non-gaffe to rile up the other morons that make up their readership, then sure.

lol, OMG such a gaffe! How embarrassing that Biden said something... uhhhh... not embarrassing at all?

Maybe from the last four years some people are just so used to every little thing coming out of a president's mouth being stone cold idiocy that they aren't used to hearing normal speech yet. They need time to come to terms with change.

That wasn't a gaffe, the sentence structure was logical and made sense.  It isn't his fault people can't understand more than a baseball cap logo of information at a time.

What he gave them was a sound bite of him saying "I have a disease and will resign" devoid of context, but they could have, and will, put together worse things without him actually saying it.

If I was them I'd be more concerned about Kamala shaking her head as he was saying it.  She's not going anywhere.

\she was probably signaling "you said something stupid".

They're going to deliberately misunderstand him no matter what he says.  We'd best get used to defending him, because agreeing with them is not only idiotic, it props up fascist propaganda even more.

Did he inadvertently start a global crisis?

Did he order children to be put in a cage?

Did he order the assassination of a diplomat on foreign soil where neither are the sovereign nation?

Did he attempt to provoke a country in to nuclear war?

Did he pull us out of some treaty that would have been beneficial to everyone?

Did he attempt to hock a good or service that he(or his family) could potentially profit from?

Did he embarrass himself to a degree that leaders of other nations were publicly mocking him?

Did he attempt to subvert the (conservative) sacred free market by putting his thumb on economic scales, possibly to the benefit of either himself or his family?

Did he attempt to absolve a lackey of crimes by gaslighting people in to believing that they did not see and hear what they just saw and heard?

Did his actions or inactions lead to a plurality of the 276,000 deaths that have already occured during this pandemic?

No? Then I don't care.

If you want to see a pretty good (albeit fictional) portrayal of a President with an adversarial relationship with his VP. watch the first few seasons of the West Wing.  Bartlett had to put a conservative Democrat from Texas on the ticket and he's constantly sabotaging Bartlett's agenda.  It's always better when POTUS and VPOTUS are on the same page (or at least VPOTUS knows their place)

The only areas where the VP can act unilaterally are when executing the powers granted to the VP by the constitution, namely casting tie breaking votes in the senate, and making decisions concerning the 25th amendment. Any other role the VP fills in an administration is at the pleasure of the president.

Righties pick on trivia because they have no legitimate arguments.

They are desperate.
