New Republic Suggests Barack Obama Should Be Hillary Clinton’s Running Mate

Thought I had accidently landed on The Onion when I read this.  However, I guess it really isn’t satire.

The challenge, then, is to make sure Clinton’s age and ethnicity don’t discourage Obama’s youthful, diverse supporters from turning out in November 2016. Fortunately, there’s an easy way to make sure that doesn’t happen. Clinton simply has to select Barack Obama as her running mate.

I can tell you that the New Republic does not have a drug testing policy because this stream of consciousness is from a place that orders fifty eight dollars in Dominoes pizza delivery after midnight.

But those crack heads over at the New Republic are deadly serious about this.  They think that by engaging the PINO and putting him on the ticket, that they are going to get all those youthful voters who showed up to the mid term elections and supported all of the Democrat candidates down ballot and helped them maintain their Senate Majority to come on out and vote for Hillary.  Oh wait…

Further, all of the “youthful, diverse supporters” seriously can’t name one thing Hillary has accomplished.  Instead they talk about her time as a “woman” in power, how she shaped foreign policy, “Smart Power” blah blah blah.

Hey kids, ever wonder why that is?  Why it is you can’t name one thing Hillary has accomplished?  Hmmmm…  I wonder….

And as support for his crazy meanderings, Brian Beutler evidently has found a copy of the US Constitution lying about (it must have been in the janitors closet) and is actually quoting it.

There are three sections of the Constitution that prescribe limits on who can be president and vice president: Article II, the Twelfth Amendment and the Twenty-Second Amendment. While the former two limit who is “eligible” to serve—natural born citizens, 35 or older—the Twenty-Second Amendment begins “No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice.”

Whether its adopters intended it or not, the plain language of the Twenty-Second amendment doesn’t prohibit a former two-term president from succeeding a sitting president and serving out the remainder of her term. It merely prohibits him from running for a third. By using the term “elected” instead of “eligible,” its authors created a loophole large enough for a Clinton-Obama ticket to coast to victory through.

Liberals are so cute.  Now they are all concerned about the “plain language” of the Constitution and what it says.  You know Brian, there is some pretty plain language elsewhere there too.  You can find it over in the section marked “Bill of Rights.” You should pay particular attention to the plain language contained in the 2nd paragraph down called the “2nd Amendment.”  I think James Madison was pretty clear when he jotted that one down.

Watch out Brian; if you read that document long enough, you might find out just exact how badly PINO Obama has been violating the document you are reading.  Might lead you to want to buy an AR-15, eat meat, put your hand over your heart when you hear the National Anthem, join a Tea Party Group, stop wearing mom jeans and maybe even vote Republican.

The idea of this is laughable, but given the stupidity of the Democrat voter, it is not entirely far fetched.  Keeping the coalition of single issue voters (comprised primarily of ignorant college kids and LGBTQMICKEYMOUSE advocates), Black folks (who should be angry as hell that Obama hasn’t made a dent in the 17.9 percent unemployment rate of black Americans),  Illegal aliens, and smart and sassy single women (who, if you work for Hillary, make less than their males counterparts–someone should ask her about that) is a top priority.  I want very badly to watch the Democrats try to hold that coalition together.

So please Democrats, for the love of the sweet mother of all that is holy, PLEASE encourage Hillary to pick Barack the PINO to be her running mate.  Those of us who are on the other side of the spectrum would welcome a Clinton/Obama ticket for all of the rich content that those two would provide.  The issue ads and campaign slogans would right themselves.  Piles of ads and Youtube entries about Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Clinton Foundation money, the first philanderer, IRS Tea Party Scandals, Emails.  Literally, they just keep going.

I think it would be better to pitch this idea to History Channel though because it makes a much better reality show than it would a presidential administration.

    And I’ve seen people on conservative sites arguing the same idea – as long as you’re not electing him….. *eyeroll*
    The bit that says “if you’re constitutionally ineligible to be President, you can’t be VP, either” is pretty clear to me. That means that if you can’t be elected to President, you can’t be elected to be VP.
    Now, if you promised to appoint him once you were in office…. (And, if you do so, Hillary, just keep these three words in mind: Fort Marcy Park)

      I don’t imagine one “journalist” over there understands, or gives a rat’s patootie about, Constitutional eligibility.

        Noooo, I doubt it. This is a smoke screen, intended to get the LIV on board. “But, but, the New Republic said it was constitutional!”

    Interesting statement about the Democrats’ bench strength.
