Mrs. Biden’s Oops Moment on ‘Oprah’

Posted on Jan 20, 2009

One of the cardinal rules for any politician or spouse thereof must be: Don’t ever ad-lib on “Oprah.” Jill Biden found this out during a taping of Winfrey’s show on Monday when she let it slip that Barack Obama initially offered Joe Biden either the vice president position or that of secretary of state. As ABC’s Jake Tapper pointed out, this might not have come as a welcome revelation to Obama’s ultimate pick for secretary of state, Hillary Clinton.

Watch the clip here.

tdbach, very cute smartass. I just love stories of the supernatural, go ahead and explain the Geithner appointment. No rush, take four to eight years if you like. And you’ll need it!

Hemi, if you find yourself unable to get through those security gates at the airport, may I recommend that you take off your hat? Tin foil sets off the alarms.

Bon Voyage!

I agree that Obama offered him nothing. That’s the point, Obama is not in control. Obama as well as McCain are puppets. The outcome of the election was known to both of them in advance. The campaign was for show. There’s one controlling party and we would not vote for them if we knew who they were. This is all part of the dog and pony show aimed at convincing us we still have some control and that we guide our own future.

This is much ado about nothing.  Obama could not have offered Biden SOS because he wasn’t elected yet!!  It was all a “what if” scenario in the course of the campaign.

There’s really not much left to chance by the NWO.  The timing was perfect and this was not a slip it was planned. This is just more NWO subterfuge. The truth is Hillary (“Billary”) was tapped to be Secretary of State around the same time Obama was tapped to be president.  That was about two years ago.  Colin Luther Powell mentioned a conversation he had with Obama around that time on Morning Joe yesterday.  Funny how Powell now appears to have been an Obama supporter from much earlier than we’ve been led to believe.  That Powell statement on Morning Joe was meant as more diversion from the question why Obama was elected president with nothing more than a MySpace page for a resume.  “Well if Colin Powell saw fit to cross over and back the guy he must be alright!”

This Biden leak on Oprah came out just prior to “Billary’s” confirmation.  “Billary’s” concession during the campaign was far weaker than anyone expected. Why?  She already knew what her (their) position in the new administration would be.  The fact is the Clintons will be running the show while we enjoy “That’s Our Barry” for four years.  There’s a good reason Joe Biden smiles so broadly, he’s in on the joke.
