Joe whathisname scraping for traction

Posted by Ron Coleman on November 30, 2007

Remember whathisname?

Presidential hopeful Delaware Sen. Joe Biden stated unequivocally that he will move to impeach President Bush if he bombs Iran without Congressional approval.

Biden spoke in front of a crowd of approximately 100 at a Seacoast Media Group forum Thursday, which focused on the Iraq War and foreign policy. When an audience member expressed fear of another war with Iran, he said he does not typically engage in threats, but had no qualms about issuing a direct warning to the oval office.

“The President has no authority to unilaterally attack Iran and if he does, as foreign relations committee chairman, I will move to impeach,” said Biden, which was followed by a raucous applause.

There. That gets you on Drudge. It must gall the hell out of him — kind of like McCain — that by now, after all these laps around the track — that new guys come in and he’s not a top contender for his party’s nomination. Biden is just not serious, though. Look, more:

Biden said he is in the process of meeting with constitutional law experts to prepare a legal memorandum saying as much, and intends to send it to the President.

When resident Joel Carp asked Biden why not impeach now given what has already been done, Biden said it was a valid point but might not be constitutionally valid and potentially counterproductive. A case for impeachment must have clear evidence, he said, and blame should be directed at the right parties.

“If you’re going to impeach George Bush, you better impeach Cheney first,” said Biden, which also received applause.

This is just pathetic. And the real shame of it is there’s evidently a decent guy under there, who is every bit good looking enough to qualify for the office.

UPDATE:  Like I said — pathetic (VIP).

    He’ll be someone’s VP – or in a Democratic president’s campaign. Speaking as a Delawarean, the guy’s an embarrassment. However he’s supported because he puts the state in the news – something that doesn’t happen all that much since MBNA got gutted like a trout by Bank of America, and DuPont becomes a shadow of its one great self.

  2. Oh, wa-a-a-a-ay too much ego for VP. Cannot agree!

    Someone will give him sloppy wet kisses (talk of a Cheney-ish co-presidency), especially someone like Edwards or Obama. He adds the “g” word to their ticket: gravitas.

    Not so much Hillary. She’s too Machiavellian. She’ll pick a Dan Quayle sort, someone who looks pretty but is an airhead and 100% controllable. John Edwards maybe?

  4. Joe Biden IMHO is second only to Hillary as the scariest candidate. He was the driving force behind VAWA, and has recently introduced an international version that seeks to damage men’s rights everywhere.

    Decency? Not so much.

    Secretary of State. That’s what he wants.

    As for impeaching Cheney/Bush, what are y’all so defensive about? Some future president, who will be far worse than these two clowns, will do even worse things because he’ll know no one will stop him. Better we should get rid of Cheney and Bush now and give future president a cautionary tale to think about.

  6. Ok…terrific.

    Don’t say you haven’t been warned!

    I’m just saying.
