Joe Biden Denies Asking Vladimir Putin To Be Running Mate in 2016

September 26, 2013 9:49 am 1 comment

WASHINGTON – During his interview with Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s Hardball, Vice President Biden was asked about rumors circulating Washington that he asked Russian President Putin to be his running mate in the 2016 presidential race. Following is a transcript of that conversation.

CHRIS MATTHEWS: My guest tonight is the vice president of the United States. Let’s play Hardball! …. Welcome, Mr. Vice President!

JOE BIDEN: Happy to be here, Chris.

MATTHEWS: Let’s examine the bacterium culture in that big Petri dish we call Washington politics.

BIDEN: (laughs) That’s a wonderful analogy, Chris.

MATTHEWS: (blushing) Thank-you, Mr. Vice President. (clears throat) Uh, Hillary Clinton is showing fertile signs that she’s begun preparing for a 2016 presidential run. Does that make you uneasy?

BIDEN: (laughing loudly) Oh, gosh no! I’ve made no effort to hide the fact that I respect and admire Secretary Clinton’s tenacity throughout all her years of humiliation and scandal. Her ruthless and unrelenting ambition personifies what makes America exceptional.

MATTHEWS: I have no doubt your sentiments are genuine, but would you concede a Hillary Clinton campaign could interfere with your own presidential aspirations?

BIDEN: Chris, right now my job is to stand with President Obama as we work to get our country back to work, get those transgender people on the front lines of our military and by gosh, provide unfettered access to swift and free abortions for all those young gals being impregnated by their fathers.

MATTHEWS: At this point in the game many people are convinced Hillary has the female vote in the bag.

BIDEN: (laughs) Chris, I learned a long time ago not to use the word bag when I’m talking about the fairer sex. (Biden winks at the camera)

MATTHEWS: Sir, there’s a Washington power player, whose name I cannot divulge, that I’ve known for a long time. She’s hobnobbed in the big leagues for decades and her credentials are impeccable. She confided to me that you’ve reached out to Russian President Putin as a potential running mate in 2016.

BIDEN: (laughing loudly) Oh, gosh! Well, that’s sure a whale of a tale, isn’t it?

MATTHEWS: Mr. Vice President, are you telling me now, in front of millions of viewers, that you did not speak with President Putin?

BIDEN: I’m the vice president of the United States, Chris, of course I’ve spoken with President Putin! Heck, we’re in the same fantasy football league.

MATTHEWS: Did the subject of him being your running mate in 2016 ever come up?

BIDEN: Chris, when you speak to as many people as I do everyday, the conversations kind of resemble a big pot of stew. It may taste good, but you haven’t got a clue what’s in it.

MATTHEWS: So you don’t have a clue if you asked President Putin to be your running mate?

BIDEN: (laughing) I don’t recall such a conversation with Vladimir.

MATTHEWS: What if President Putin wanted to be your running mate?

IDEN: (laughing) If President Putin wants to be my running mate he’ll have to be vetted just like everyone else. One doesn’t just become a vice presidential running mate. There are lots of hurdles before that finish line.

MATTHEWS: But sir, the whole world is aware of Putin’s draconian views on homosexuality and his alliance with Syria.

BIDEN: Chris, you’re talking about Vladimir’s Russian policies.

MATTHEWS: Are you saying his views would be different in the U.S.?

BIDEN: Oh sure. His convictions would change dramatically if he were vice president of the United States. Who I am today is completely different from who I was before I became a politician.

MATTHEWS: So you’re saying it’s all politics.

BIDEN: (laughing) Of course. Heck, John Kerry was a man who called his fellow soldiers in Vietnam murderers and rapists, made a mockery of the war medals he was awarded for questionable heroics and he couldn’t remember if he voted to invade Iraq. The minute he becomes secretary of state his bloodthirsty craving to start bombing Syria made Dick Cheney look like a trembling pacifist. Remember when President Obama was going to woo the world with kindness and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize? Today he’s force feeding aging Guantanamo prisoners and using drones to shower bombs over the Middle East without the slightest concern for collateral damage.

MATTHEWS: You don’t think President Obama cares about innocent women and children being killed by our drone attacks?

BIDEN: (Laughing) Of course not. When you get a taste of power at this level, Chris, you’d be surprised how easy it is to discard the identities you’ve created as you’re throwing anybody who gets in your way under the bus.

MATTHEWS: (clears throat) Do you honestly feel Vladimir Putin is willing to become the type of person the American people would want as their vice president?

BIDEN: Look, Chris, let’s not forget how impressed the American people were after Vladimir saved President Obama from his embarrassing Syria debacle. Vladimir’s decisiveness and take-charge attitude is something this country hasn’t seen since Reagan. The American people are hungry for an unwavering, take-charge kind of guy who makes things happen.

MATTHEWS: Mr. Vice President, are you considering Vladimir Putin as your running mate in 2016?

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.
