Is Joe Biden going to run for President? The momentum might be building…

July 9, 2015

 With only three legitimate announced Democratic candidates running for President in 2016 there is plenty of room for more and the most logical, high profile name on the list of unannounced candidates might be that of Vice President Joe Biden.

  But is he going to run? He has not given any indication one way or the other but it would seem as if a decision should be made in the near future if he hopes to have any chance. There seems to be some momentum gathering behind the “draft Joe Biden” movement in recent weeks.

  First we read stories about his family (including the late Beau Biden) and friends urging him to run and now two Barack Obama fundraisers are getting behind the effort as well.

  Here is more:

Two leading fundraisers for President Obama have pledged their support for Biden, who hasn’t taken any formal steps toward running. Last week, top Obama bundler Jon Cooper signed on to be the national finance chair of the Draft Biden 2016 PAC, an organization encouraging the vice president to enter the race for the White House. Major Obama fundraiser Shiva Sarram also joined the finance team on Wednesday.

  This seems to be a strong indication that something may be afoot, but there is more:

The Draft Biden PAC has over 100,000 signatures, teams in the early states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, as well as volunteers in every state. While the group won’t release its fundraising numbers until the July 15 deadline, executive director William Pierce claims the cash influx exceeded all expectations.

“This is a rebirth for the VP,” Pierce said. But there have been questions as to whether Biden plans on running at all, especially following the recent death of his son Beau Biden.

  And more still:

“People I would describe as being in Biden’s inner circle are giving increasingly positive signals that VP Biden will be throwing his hat in the ring,” Cooper said. “I would have not agreed to take on this role with Draft Biden unless I thought that Biden would enter the race. Nothing’s 100 percent but certainly all signals are pointed in that direction.”

  Stay tuned, the Democratic field may be getting a little more crowded before all is said and done…

    Please, please,please run Joe. Hillary lying and Bernie not using deodorant is boring the hell out of us. Some good old Bidenisms are just what the doctor ordered to liven up things a bit.

    I’d love to see Joe run. I don’t think Hillary would have a chance at the nomination if he does. All his oars don’t hit the water be he can play just as dirty as any Democrat and won’t hesitate.

    It might make the administration more amenable to selling out ole Hillary. That could be some fun.

      I am looking forward to the possibility because it will make for sum entertainment with him and Sanders attacking her.

    Ya, he will probably run. I hate to think what the White House would be with him in there, but then again, it cannot get any worse than the present inhabitants, right? With all the crap about Hillary coming out, she will still most likely be the candidate to face off with a Republican. I am seeing more and more stupid people on the left, IF they think she is the best they have to offer.

      No, it probably cannot get any worse but then again knowing how prone he is to gaffes it might just have the possibility of getting worse!

    The same ‘masters’ over Bari are probably the bank rollers for confused Biden. To me it shows that ‘split’ for power in that “image” position. Brings to mind too Jarrett doing things to blackball Hilly – WH says ‘utter baloney’ other sources say ‘Valerie Jarrett Leaked Hillary’s Email Use To Press’. Believe the liars or truther’s?
    Here’s from the ‘transparent’ Admin. Jarrett denying it (the reality makers) – she didn’t do it … she had a underling send it to the papers:

        Is it wrong of me to know what you meant even thought you “mis”typed? I was focusing on that really big TRANSPARENT Administration we have, I guess!

        I know what you mean. Sometimes a person need not ‘even bother’ bring it up, because our brains tell us what they meant! … it’s better to catch it before clicking ‘send’! Thanks for your understanding! *Isn’t that something how they use that word ‘transparent’! Evil loves to twists and contorts meaning and truth for its own gain – makes it something it not / the opposite.

      I remember these rumors as well and I happen to believe it is probably true. There is no love lost between Obama and Hillary and with his donors getting behind Biden you have to believe this might be who the puppet masters want in there.

        Well, at least if the donors get behind Biden, it will be a rather interesting campaign time for us to watch….can only imagine the shady crap that will be slung around both of the candidates….yep, will be interesting to sit back and watch the attack.

        I hope they all attack each other day in and day out! It will be entertaining at least…

    If Joe runs, who’s supplying the popcorn? I’m going to need some. Hey, maybe we can have him debate Trump?
