gilgigamesh: 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.

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."

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.

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.


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.

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.

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

The VP does not serve the president.

They do, though - it's not "back in the day" anymore.


The president can fire those that serve at his pleasure. Presidents usually request resignations for a little bit of political cover, but the power to fire is certainly there for cabinet secretaries and other political appointees.

The vice president is a constitutional officer in her own right, elected on her own. The president cannot fire the VP any more than he can a member of congress or a governor.

The president can certainly reduce the VP's portfolio beyond her constitutional duties to nothing. But the president cannot stop the VP from presiding over the senate, or force the VP  from office.

Which is exactly the opposite of what "serves at the pleasure" means.

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.

Actually no, the President can't fire the VP.  He could ask her to resign but she's under no obligation to do so.


Can't fire, but can make them irrelevant, (except for tie breaking votes in the Senate) by giving them "no portfolio" to handle and then give an Eisenhower/ Nixon style endorsement of


" Dwight D. Eisenhower on Richard Nixon contributions as his vice president:"If you give me a week, I might think of one. I don't remember."

Which is why President-Elect Biden should appoint trump as the new VP, a sort of compromise to get the rigged election mess cleared up.

trump would keep the prosecution protections from crimes that he currently has, and as VP no one would care that he was golfing every day. Plus trump could hold weekly rallies across the country for his 2024 Presidential run, making it an historical first time a sitting VP ran against a sitting President in an election.

1)  I don't personally know anyone who is worshipping him.  I don't know anyone who worships anything, for that matter, but I'm canadian.  He's a president-elect and a career politician who is an immeasurable improvement over his immediate predecessor.  Globally, I think most sane people are relieved about this.

2)  I don't know if Biden has Alzheimer's.  If he does, you can't reasonably expect him to remain in office, which is what I was getting at in my original post.  For all its flaws and internal strife, the U.S. is not a backwater third-world nation where infirm national leaders are propped up so shadow councils can keep running things status quo.  If he's sick, he'll step aside, and then Harris is there.

3)  There's no doubt that Trump will continue to have a voice once he's out of office, and there's loads of doomsday speculation about how influential his voice will be.  Personally, I hope he loses relevance as quickly as Sarah Palin did.
