NYT: Obama Warned Biden — ‘You Don’t Have to Do This, Joe.’

Breitbart-

Former President Barack Obama reportedly wasn’t particularly sold on the idea of Joe Biden, his vice president for eight years, mounting his own bid for the White House in 2020.

“You don’t have to do this, Joe, you really don’t,” Obama told Biden before the 76-year-old formally launched his campaign in April, according to the New York Times.

“Mr. Biden — who thinks he could have defeated Donald Trump four years ago — responded by telling Mr. Obama he could never forgive himself if he turned down a second shot at Mr. Trump,” the Times reports.

The Times states Obama huddled with top Biden aides in March to implore they insure that the former vice president does not “damage his legacy” or “embarrass himself.”

The newspaper further reports Obama and Biden met over lunch last, where the former president urged the White House hopeful to recruit fresher faces to his campaign. “He has communicated his frustration that Mr. Biden’s closest advisers are too old and out of touch with the current political climate — urging him to include more younger aides,” the Times said.

Biden famously failed to lock down Obama’s endorsement upon entering the race, though his former boss did issues a statement saying choosing the then-senator as his running mate in 2008 was “one of the best decisions he ever made” and still remain close friends. read more here

  1. Obama overestimated the intelligence of the average democrat voter. He assumed idiot Joe would be an awful candidate and drag down the party. But no, he’s the front runner gaffs and all.

  2. Obama the pompous jackass actually still believes he was a superstar president instead of the abysmal failure he was and the world hangs on his every word.
    No Barry, you’re just an insufferable asshole but will likely never realize it.
    Biden couldn’t do any worse than you did.

  3. Judge Jill (Biden) needs to take custodianship of her husband.
    (I still hope to never see another photo of BO, Jr.)

  4. @ gin blossom:

    Biden couldn’t do any worse than [Barky] did.

    Sure he could! He could pick Stacey Abrams for veep running mate and then die at his post-swearing-in inauguration party.

  5. Obama knew that by biden exposing himself as a fool also partially explains why biden stood by a traitor for 8 years, and that biden stood by obama because he was too dumb to either see through him or too lazy to stand up for America.

    Obama is a bad joke, as is his legacy.

    What is this, Rocky II? In other news, Obama was asked to return a friendship bracelet.

    Yeah, you didn’t have to do all the shit you did either Obutthole…..but you did it anyway.

  9. Obama’s dumber than I thought. If Biden becomes president the seditious gay Kenyan commie won’t be our worst president for long.

  10. “Obama Warned Biden — ‘You Don’t Have to Do This” — so Michelle (also known as Mikey Zero, undetermined gender) can step in when Biden steps out.

    Too late for that. The entire BO era was an embarrassment and a poor disgraceful legacy.

    Wasn’t Joey’s primary or sole purpose as VP, was to be an insurance policy against removing Barky from office?

    To create a pause, a moment of doubt about the wisdom of removing BO from office. (for say, flying pallets loads of cash to the Iranian terrorists regime, among other misdeeds) With the thoughts of – as bad as Barky is – things really might be worse if Joey got bumped up to the top spot.

  12. Biden was a great useful idiot for Obama. It is pretty obvious now what Obama really thought of old Joe during his years in office.
