(OPINION) — Is the White House through First Lady Michelle Obama slighting Vice President Joe Biden by saying she would like to see a woman president quickly? And that we have a few options for one? You know she’s talking about Hillary Clinton and possibly Elizabeth Warren. Why are they dumping on Biden?
Michelle Obama was interviewed by ABC’s Robin Roberts at a Washinton D.C. summit focused on work-family policies on Monday. She said, “I think the country is ready” for a woman president. Mrs. Obama said, “The person who should do the job is the person who’s most qualified. And we have some options, don’t we?”
The White House has called on Joe Biden to get involved in the all foreign policy nightmares unfolding before our eyes and he has done it. It seems that he is being dissed by the White House. We know President Obama owes the Clintons a huge favor for all their help, particularly Bill Clinton’s help during the 2012 presidential campaign, but Biden also saved the ticket some face during his knock-out vice presidential debate against Rep. Paul Ryan. This was after Obama’s horrible debate performance against Mitt Romney.
The fact is, I doubt Joe Biden is a viable alternative for the Democratic Party, but for the White House to openly diss him is just wrong. That’s my opinion. Hillary Clinton is being framed in much the same way as Mitt Romney — out of touch with the majority of Americans due to being fabulously wealthy.
