There is a real possibility that, this coming week, Joe Biden will be selecting the 47th president of the United States.

For the woman Biden picks — he has promised to exclude from consideration all men, black, brown, white or Asian — has a better chance of succeeding to the presidency than any vice presidential nominee in U.S. history, other than perhaps Harry Truman.

In 1944, the Democratic establishment engineered the dumping of radical Henry Wallace from Roosevelt’s ticket. They could see from FDR’s physical deterioration that he would not last through a full fourth term.

There are other reasons the woman Biden chooses in August may become our 47th president.

If Biden wins, he will be 78 when he takes the oath, older than our eldest president, Ronald Reagan, was when he left office after two terms. Biden would turn 80 even before he reached the midpoint of his first term.

Moreover, Biden has suffered a transparent deterioration of his mental capacities that was nowhere evident when he debated Mitt Romney’s running mate Paul Ryan in 2012.

What are the odds that Biden would serve a full term?

Of our 45 presidents, nine failed to complete the term to which they had been elected. One resigned; four died in office; and four were assassinated. All nine were succeeded by their vice president.

John Tyler became president in 1841 when William Henry Harrison died a month into office of pneumonia, following an inaugural address of nearly two hours in the cold without an overcoat.

Tyler would effect the annexation of the Republic of Texas in his final days in 1845, fail to win his party’s nomination to a full term, back the secession of Virginia in 1861, and end his days as a member of the Confederate Congress sitting in Richmond in 1862.

Mexican War hero and President Zachary Taylor died in his second year in 1850, to be succeeded by Millard Fillmore, who would go on to become the 1856 nominee of the anti-Catholic, anti-immigrant American Party known to history as the “Know Nothings.”

Andrew Johnson became president after the assassination of Lincoln at Ford’s Theater a month after Lincoln’s second inaugural.

Johnson would be impeached in 1868 by radical Republicans who wanted a more severe Reconstruction of a defeated and occupied South.

Chester Arthur succeeded James Garfield in 1881 after President Garfield suffered a mortal wound from an assassin’s bullet at a D.C. train station, only months into his first year in office.

Teddy Roosevelt became our youngest president in 1901 when he succeeded the assassinated William McKinley. In our own time, Lyndon Johnson succeeded John F. Kennedy after Dallas in November 1963.

In addition to Tyler, Fillmore, Andrew Johnson, Arthur, TR and LBJ, three vice presidents succeeded to the presidency in the 20th century on the death or departure of the men who selected them: Calvin Coolidge on the death of Warren Harding in 1923, Harry Truman on the death of FDR in April 1945, and Gerald Ford on the resignation of Richard Nixon.

Thus, of our four dozen vice presidents, all of whom have been white men, nine have risen to the nation’s highest office to fill out a term of the president who selected him.

Yet, with the pandemic crisis, the economic crisis and the racial crisis gripping the nation, what are the unique conditions Biden has set down for the person he would put a heartbeat away from the presidency?

Biden began his selection process by eliminating and discriminating against whole categories of people.

First, no white men need apply. Second, no man of any race, color or creed will be considered. Gender rules them out, though every vice president for 230 years has been a man.

Nevertheless, says Biden, this one has to be a woman.

“No men need apply!” automatically eliminated 17 of the 24 Democratic governors who are men, including Andrew Cuomo of New York and Gavin Newsom of California, and it eliminated 30 of the 47 Democratic members of the Senate who are men.

ORDER IT NOW

In the aftermath of the George Floyd killing and protests, pressure has grown on Biden not only to choose a woman but a woman of color, and preferably a Black woman. If that were a criterion, it would eliminate all but a tiny few of the party’s senators and governors.

What national interest impelled Biden to so restrict the pool of talent from which a possible presidential successor would be chosen?

Joe Biden would be the oldest man ever to serve as president. He would enter office with visibly diminished mental capacities. And he has decided to restrict his choice as to who should inherit our highest office by ruling out the vast majority of the most able and experienced leaders of his own Democratic Party.

Is this any way to select someone who could, in a heartbeat, take control of the destiny of the world’s most powerful nation?

Whatever happened to Jimmy Carter’s “Why Not the Best?”

    Pence was not selected because he was the smartest or most capable. It was because he would help get the evalengelical vote.

    If being selected a VP is solely about merit, then how is it only white men have ever been worthy to serve office? Where was Buchanon crying about racism then?

    Jesus, white people are becoming truly insufferable. A race of whiners who can’t take not being in control.

    Except of course, that the president and the vice president will be figureheads. Who cares how smart they are, and how ‘prepared’ and ‘capable’ they are, when their entire job is to follow orders? I mean George W. Bush had no idea what he was doing. Barack Obama was smart, sure, but took orders directly from Wall Street – he could have been as senile as Biden, it would have made no practical difference.

    Trump has been a disappointment, but he has offered at least some (haphazard) opposition to the elite establishment. Hence the frenzy of ‘russiagate” and all the rest. But the opposition – and I include ‘mainstream’ Republicans in this – will all be the same, Pepsi vs. Coke. Who cares?

    Perhaps it is Biden’s “survival card”.

    It takes 2/3 of the Senate to remove a sitting President. If Biden picks a VP so bad that the GOP would prefer to keep him, then a cabinet driven coup within the DNC will fail.

    Congress shall decide the issue … by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.

    Biden would be a better President from Walter Reed ICU than Stacey Abrams.

    Trump didn’t announce that he was excluding everyone except for white males. You and the rest of the left wing fanatics would have had a coronary if he did. Pence served in Congress and was elected as governor of Indiana, so he was a successful politician before being selected as VP. It’s not like he was just some marginal figure who was in good with the evangelicals.

    So history justifies discrimination regardless of merit?

    Can’t wait to see Asians in this year’s NBA lineup.

    Oh wait that’s sports and that’s different even if we can’t explain why.

    Liberals and egalitarians can’t even make an argument without defaulting to some irrational double standard that they can’t explain or defend.

    Must be strange spending your life constantly creating rules that completely lack rationality or principle.

    But the real problem is that if Biden picks an Affirmative Action hire she will have to be “handled” far more than even Bush was. So it could horribly backfire just like the company that has the clueless Affirmative Action executive that everyone resents.

    I don’t think the left has taken this into account.

    ‘I remember back in 1980 when 69 year old Reagan was considered too old to be president. Doubly so in 1984 when he was 73. Forty years ago that was old. Not now.’

    As it happens, Reagan was starting to drift into senility towards the end of his second term — when he was just 77. That’s considerably younger than Biden will be.

    Then there was also the catastrophic French decision to turn to Petain in 1940. As time went by, it became increasingly obvious the 84 year old hero of Verdun was, above all, becoming senile. As I recall, by the time of his trial in 1945, he didn’t seem to know what was happening.

    Old men can stay lucid — Kissinger still has most of his mojo and he’s some incredible age. However, it can’t be guaranteed. Electing them is the political equivalent of playing Russian roulette. Nothing we’ve done has staved off the advance of senility. There’s no pill for it.

    As ordinary lifespans keep increasing, this is going to become a problem we’re going to have to face. If the average man dies when he’s 56, that he’ll start to lose his mental powers at perhaps 76 is not usually an issue. If he starts living on average to 86, it will be.

    Mob rule seems to be the dominant theme right now. And wow be to them who goes against the mob.

  33. The demokrat party has cooked the books again–just as they did in 2016 when their politburo insisted on Madame Clinton as the nominee even though half the country couldn’t stand her (as was proven when she won less than 50 percent of the popular vote). Biden probably won’t finish out his first term, so the demokrats will have their precious woman president–and, as a bonus, it’ll probably be a woman “of color.”

    Actually, the VP role is not about merit. It is about triangulating and balancing the ticket.

    Not necessarily. Walter Mondale is an example of someone who made effective use of the office.

    The VP can protect the President in other ways. Nixon was far less likely to be impeached while Spiro Agnew was in office.

    Dan Quayle was a stellar pick. George Bush was responsible enough not to pick someone incapable of handling the presidency if necessary– and he’d just spent eight years in the Senate with Quayle, thus knew the man well– but nobody else took him seriously. It was similar to Bush’s predecessor offering SDI to the Soviets– “Uh, comrades… what do we do now?”

    Rumor has it he is going to pick Michele Obama, who will become the defect president.

    Default? De facto?

    The bloom was off FDR by his third and fourth elections, and he was about as popular as presidents ever got. Third-term-by-proxy is not the way to bet, as we saw with Al Gore and HRC– the latter did worse in winning Minnesota than Ronald Reagan did in losing there. Nixon lost in 1960. (Or so they tell us.) George Bush is the only postwar “third term” candidate who pulled it off.

    Obama was one of the best-performing Democratic candidates ever. He won a majority of the so-called “popular vote”, which only Johnson and FDR have managed to do since the Civil War. (FDR 4, Obama 2, Johnson 1.)

    Still, even with that there was no big lust for a third Obama term.

    All politicians have connections but VPs for most of US history had minimum qualifications.

    As far as I can tell that ended in the 60s.

    Could Biden find a qualified Black female? Sure but he is impressionable and will go with a media pick which will likely be a diversity for the sake of it candidate.

    I’ve seen affirmative action backfire in the private sector. It ends up having the opposite effect. People end up concluding that liberals are reckless egalitarians that don’t understand the basics of how businesses work.

    Liberals should tread carefully here but they of course won’t because they live in a deluded and irrational world where open discrimination is OK if you feel morally superior.

    The VP is certainly used to balance the ticket and reach unconvinced voters which means that Biden’s strategy (or that of his trainers?) is dark and demented.

    The Black vote is locked up and has been before Biden even offered anything to Blacks. In fact Blacks practically saved him in the primary.

    So the strategy here is to offer White liberal women the potential of a Black female president if something happens to Biden.

    I would only be concerned if Biden skips the debates and the vote is entirely mail-in.

    As we get closer to November we will see more liberals come up with excuses for why Biden shouldn’t debate.

    But Biden is an ego maniac and thinks he is going to teach Trump a lesson. He thinks he can take down the school yard bully on his own. As with most liberals he is over-confident in his depth of knowledge. He is unprepared to debate someone like Trump. Even if he is given the questions beforehand Trump is a master of veering away from the subject. Trump won’t play fair and this will cause Biden to blow his top.

    I hope you are correct. But I just read Maureen Dowd’s op ed in the NY Times. Trump erred in having that rally without requiring masks and acting macho.
    The thing with Biden is that he like a lot of dementia patients does not realize how bad it is. To me it is like elder abuse, putting he up there is cynical and unethical beyond belief. This is the first time the Dems are willing to hold the country hostage to bring Trump down. Dangerous times.

    I don’t tend to think too much about the behavior of sperm, so when I do so twice in 48 hours, my ears prick up (figuratively).

    A total coincidence, and almost certainly unrelated, but it’s always worth keeping an eye on coincidences. Maybe there’s a secret hidden in plain sight. Maybe they don’t mean anything objectively, but it may obliquely lead to a personal revelation. Maybe it’s just random patterns in the noise.

    The will hammer him over the virus but it will be hard for them to argue that Biden would have done better. They want us to forget that Biden called travel bans xenophobic. Biden has also been hiding in a bunker.

    Yea I completely agree. It is wrong to run him regardless of politics.

    The right thing to do is pull him and have a special primary election by mail.

    I’d rather not see him humiliated in a debate but that is where we are headed. He will melt down in a debate and lose independents.

    Then there is the plagiarism and grabby hands videos that the MSM won’t be able to keep off the internet.

    He has to show the public rumors of his cognitive decline are untrue, maybe at the DNC Covention in 2 weeks and/or the debates, if he makes a really short speech and then skips the debates people would think the cognitive allegations are true, unless the Hate for Trump is so great, that is enough, I doubt it, do people really want someone who shows signs of Alzheimer’s representing them, with The Nuclear Codes, to talk to other World Leaders about important decisions that could damage the Country ?

What is worse then an unattractive black women running. Any women running must have sex appeal. That was the problem with Hillary.

    Women get their stomachs torn up by childbirth.

    I don’t think it is right to post that type of picture for any woman.

    I’m not sure why the right even hates her. She doesn’t want her family in politics and when it comes to education policy she wasn’t on the side of the race denying NCLB. Laura Bush on the other hand was a huge proponent of the policy which assumed (White) teachers were not trying hard enough and needed to be punished. But of course the right/left race denying establishment later changed their mind about the assumptions of NCLB and now hope that no one brings it up.

    Here is a Catholic tranny talking about the Vatican.

    REPORT
    The Vatican Draws a Line on Gender, and Transgender Catholics Push Back
    By Bonnie Horgos | July 30, 2019
    EmailPrint

    She is called Joan of Arc after the Saint.

    [MORE]

    Murphy Guinane, 28, grew up Catholic, is gender non-binary, and was confirmed in 2016 at St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Church in Minneapolis, Minn. As part of the sacrament of confirmation, an initiation ritual that reaffirms faith in Christ, many Catholics add a saint’s name after their given first and middle names. The gesture is deeply symbolic, as the confirmed will turn to the saint for guidance throughout their lives. Guinane chose “Joan,” after the 15th-century French martyr Joan of Arc.
    “Saint Joan of Arc has been the perfect patron saint for me because she, too, had gender problems and was always ready to fight,” Guinane said. “She was someone of faith whom the Church feared and couldn’t understand because they couldn’t fit her in any boxes. They couldn’t believe that the saints and angels would choose someone like her, and they killed her over it. But Joan never lost her faith or her love of it. She was young and scared, but she wouldn’t apologize for her own existence, and I need that strength.”
    Guinane has adopted a gender-neutral first name, a fairly common practice for transgender people who have found navigating a legal name change to be notoriously difficult. Much to Guinane’s relief, when they asked if the parish required use of the legal name for the sacrament, the parish liturgy director replied with a question: “What name would you like to use?” Guinane was so moved, they cried while the Rev. Mike Tegeder administered the sacrament before the parish altar in a ceremony attended by Guinane’s roommate and parents, who flew in from the East Coast for the event. In a way, it was the first time they’d been officially recognized with their chosen name.
    “It meant a lot to me, the ease of it,” Guinane said. “It was the first time in a long time that I not only felt like God was present in that space, but also I was part of that, that God saw me.”

    Parts are too high.

    And what is the conspiracy explanation for where her kids came from?

    The right does not hate him/her, but it is a good object lesson on why Barack Hussein is such a effete pansy who let the U.S. be pushed around on the world stage.

    I would point out that numerous race-denying conservatives supported him under the belief that it would end White guilt and usher in a new era of unity.

    Conservative Inc types lectured Whites on how we have to prove America isn’t racist.

    The left got their magic mulatto and nothing changed. Wow it’s almost like this is more complicated than just needing to stick a Black guy at the top of the totem pole.

    White guilt conservatives were the winning vote for him. Don’t forget that.

    Romney would have won if he didn’t run his damn mouth in front of that bartender.

    So I don’t need a lesson just because I think that is a crass picture. I was right from day one and so was anyone that actually bothers to study race critically. Conservative Inc was wrong along with the entire establishment.

    In English, saying “a more attractive candidate” means “more attractive as a candidate” — it isn’t referring to their physical attributes.

    Sorry if you feel the picture is crass.

    To date, you are the only person who believes it is a stomach deformity. Most believe it is just an extremely poor dress design for a muscular, broad shouldered female frame. The bunching would not have occurred on 90%+ of women who have more typical shoulder:hip ratio.

    Those of us deploying humor… Come on…. Look at that bulge… It is almost too easy….

    By way of contrition, I will concede that certain, specific, forward bulging women are extremely appealing to me. For example, the one below.

    Dunno if I’d agree that it is weird, or creepy, or even sinister. Definitely undemocratic though. I think this is the only way the democrats can get a woman that is acceptable to empire into the big chair. I cannot believe that there are no capable women for the job, however, the ones that you do see in the news are simply too socialist, or not warmongery enough for empires liking.

    Tabbi – the congresswoman for Hawaii, I think would be an excellent choice. As a serving military person, she has a greater understanding of what the US can, and cannot do in the world. Covid aside, the single greatest threat to the US – not to mention the rest of the world – is an out-of-control Pentagon, which it certainly is. As I stated though, she is assuredly not the warmonger type. This rules her out.

    I do not follow State politics, so I cannot claim knowledge of the various women governors out there, but again, I refuse to believe that none of them could do the job capably.

    Biden has got to realize his diminishing mental capacity. I think he believes he is being altruistic, honourable, even by understanding he will likely not serve out a full term due to the 25th amendment. So by his lights, he can get a woman into the White House – ideally a Black woman – and the US can start with the ‘aren’t we simply the best?!?’ drivel; simply by winning the election, and then fading off into the sunset.

    I had no idea a poll was taken on whether or not Obama married a tranny and then somehow found a woman with similar features to have his children. Gonna take a wild guess and say that I would not be in the minority on that one.

    Black women are often muscular and broad shouldered. They have higher levels of testosterone compared to women in other racial groups. As they get older they produce less estrogen and more testosterone.

    This is the most likely explanation
