The media is calling the presidential race as though Secretariats 73 Belmont Stakes was a neck and neck battle in the homestretch: Mitt Romney is a lock contrary to media race-fixing. As much as the MSM would like Hussein to win there is an additional interest in reporting a neck and neck race. A Romney walkover would dry up campaign donations for all Democrats; hence, less money for campaign advertising on TV. Not dumping Biden is another sign the race is over. The press knows that any replacement less than Jesus Christ wont change the outcome; so why bother? In fact, Biden is a definite drag on the ticket. Its not his gaffes that make him such a liability; the mans entire political life has been a walking, talking, gaffe. Its finally catching up with him. The political truism People dont vote for the vice president. is the best excuse the media offers for keeping him. In Bidens case the truism does not exclude voting against him. John Podhoretz dispels a second lame excuse for keeping Biden: Four years with Joe Biden one heartbeat away from the presidency tempted fate. Anybody who is thinking of giving him another bite out of the apple is rubbing fates nose in horse manure. Remember this question in 2008: Back then I answered he could not get anybody else who had name recognition. Today the question is: Same answer. In a column last month Podhoretz talked about different aspects of Bidens personality. He closed his commentary with a reason to vote against Biden: The incredible lightness of Biden The vice president isnt just terrible at speaking hes awful at his job Last Updated: 11:49 AM, August 19, 2012 Posted: 10:28 PM, August 18, 2012 John Podhoretz The incredible lightness of Biden - NYPOST.com Podhoretz was off by a mile. Biden has always been a time bomb for the country.
