Maybe this is why Biden’s been talking about lubrication lately — because he plans to keep screwing the economy until at least 2020:

For the past couple of years, Vice President Joe Biden has quietly assembled an A-team of advisers who would, without doubt, be considered the nucleus of a presidential campaign — if only he wouldn’t be 73 in 2016.

Biden’s age would snuff the last embers of a presidential ambition that led him to a pair of crushing defeats in 1988 and 2008, or so many in Barack Obama’s camp thought when they first tapped him. But the old fire crackles yet. And Biden, spurred in part by those rumors about being replaced on the ticket by Hillary Clinton (who turns 69 in ’16), is campaigning with a young man’s tenacity in 2012 — with an eye toward keeping all of his options open.

Biden has gone on a recent staffing spree — culminating with the hire of Clinton-era operative Steve Ricchetti — that has many Democrats, and even some on Obama’s own team, wondering if the preternaturally spry and congenitally upbeat vice president just might confound conventional wisdom.

Let’s help him out with some slogans:

–Biden 2016: At least he’s not Obama

–Biden 2016: A simple 3-letter word: Jobs

–Biden 2016: Chuck will finally stand up!

–Biden 2016: He’ll get America out from under the mountain of debt he just helped create

    Am I still in my coma?
    Is anybody out there?
    How can I get back to reality?
    I’m having a really bad dream.
    Am I on the 13th floor?

    Outside of the guy’s immediate family, the goldfish and the dog, who both live in Vermont, who would vote for him?

    Talk about delusional!

    Nobody messes with Joe. Nobody votes for him either.

    He does have a point? After GunWalker, F&F, Soilyndra, Dealergate etc. none of that sticks to Veep's. It SHOULD. But likely he'll walk scot-free, morphing from Sheriff Joe to Know-nothing Joe.

    Recall, Spiro T. Agnew was bounced out of office for his Maryland "land deal". How things have changed…

    And the name of the microorganisms known as spirochetes became much easier to remember.

    Biden 2016: Because mundane matters

    Biden 2016: Because, ahhhhh, what was I going to say?

    "During his fifth year as Vice President, in the late summer of 1973, Agnew was under investigation by the United States Attorney's office in Baltimore, Maryland, on charges of extortion, tax fraud, bribery and conspiracy. In October, he was formally charged with having accepted bribes totaling more than $100,000, while holding office as Baltimore County Executive, Governor of Maryland, and Vice President of the United States. On October 10, 1973, Agnew was allowed to plead no contest to a single charge that he had failed to report $29,500 of income received in 1967, with the condition that he resign the office of Vice President."

    Whata' PIKER! Given the scale of Porkulus, even when inflation adjusted, this covers about 45 mins. of Sheriff Joe's chicanery. Talk about corkscrew-shaped and always boring deeper..?

    "Biden 2016: Because, ahhhhh, what was I going to say? "

    Perhaps senility will have a greater say than the voters who would be dumb enough to vote for Sheriff Joe for old time's sake?

    ""Biden 2016: At least he’s not Obama""

    I guess that's for the noseholder vote?
