Joe Biden Admits His Biggest Regret

Tyler Durden's picture

Amid Donna Brazile's revelations that she wanted to replace Hillary with Joe Biden due to health concerns, this morning's comments from the former vice-president are intriguing to say the least.

Just over two years ago, then-Vice President Joe Biden announced that he would not run to succeed President Barack Obama in the 2016 presidential election.

But as ABC News reports, this week, he admitted he regrets that he doesn't currently occupy the Oval Office given the potential he sees in the United States.

"I regret that I am not president because I think there is so much opportunity," Biden told Oprah Winfrey in a clip from an OWN Network interview aired exclusively by "Good Morning America" on Thursday.

 

"I think America is so incredibly well-positioned."

In a tug-at-your-heartstrings interview with Oprah, Biden - who has yet to rule out a run in 2020 - explained his biggest regret... then that he didn't really regret it...

Though Biden did not directly refer to Trump in the clips aired by "GMA," he described to Winfrey the characteristics he believes make for a successful leader.

"They understand their strengths and they understand their weaknesses. They play to their strengths and try to shore up their weaknesses," he explained.

 

"And the people who don't do that are the people who aren't self aware enough to know ... because most of the time that abuse ends up in their downfall as well."

Biden-Oprah ticket in 2020?

"I regret that I am not president because I think there is so much opportunity ..." :  Yeah, yeah.  Now Trump is in and you see what he's trying to do, you think to yourself, "I could've pretended I was going to do that and told everyone all about it!"  No, Joe.  Your heart ain't in it so the best you could do would be a very poor "copy" ... and I use that word "copy" very loosely.

You had the last X years to do something Joe.  You didn't do it.  So here you are today.  You're the dumb-ass member of the audience who thinks he's suddenly a champion boxer because you saw one in the ring.  "I coulda done better than that!"  Sure you "coulda".  NOT.

"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that's a storybook, man."

Ya know, instead of a dindu...lol.

Who did more damage to the DNC than any opponent could have ever dreamed of doing.

Good Joe, nice boi ;-)

This son of a bitch would have been getting us coffee a couple of years ago.- Bill Clinton talking about Barack Obama. Like Clayton Bigsby said, "let that Hate Out!"

Remember when Obama and Hillary had their "secret meeting' before the DNC vote in 2008, thats when the cabal said Obama will be POTUS and then Hillary after that. They made a pact and had to keep it.

Uncle Joe might regret it, but the rest of us are ecstatic that we don't have a Pedo Fondler in Chief...

Being born cannot be a regret.  therefore "I feel your pain"... "if you like your doctor..."  Just go away, Uncle Creepy.  We are the biggest joke to the world right now.  Putin must have to change his underwear 20 times a day.

Creepy Joe would have made PIZZA tax deductible.

"Now we know there's going to be some graft & corruption when 700 billion dollars gets thrown down in the middle of all this, thats why I'm appointing Sheriff Joe to keep an eye on things! We're thinking 10-15% will be lost."

Jesus Christ.

Joe Biden Admits His Biggest Regret

My response; My "biggest regret" is that HRC, OBAMA and their respective teams are NOT in JAIL yet!!!

Joe Biden is a DESPOT with a REPROBATE MIND who needs to SHUT UP, STAND DOWN and GO AWAY.

Shame on Oprah Winfrey for giving this guy air time. This lady is corrupt and a liar as well.

That, and not auditioning and thus getting the part of Thomas Magnum, in Magnum, P.I.

Another looser with nothing but excuses! Definition of a lifelong politician in the US!

Thats just what this country needs! 

A Crazy Uncle Joe who can't keeps his hands off the ladies who's stated self defense advice to his main squeeze in any home invasion is to fire both barrels of the ole family heirloom shotgun into the air off the balcony of their chateau! 

His time has finally come!

"...fire both barrels of the ole family heirloom shotgun into the air off the balcony of their chateau!"

What's wrong with that? I see no problem with emptying your weapon while turning over all tactical advantage to the bad guy.

"It makes a fine heirloom baseball bat Jill. Go call 911 or try clubbing them to death with it now. No worries! Where'd you put the keys to my Trans Am?"...LMMFAO!!!

Maximeme Q's picture

LOL at this ^^^

Oh the imagery!!!

GeezerGeek's picture

Perhaps Joe was worried about black helicopters assaulting his chateau. Better to get them while they're still in the air. Stingers would be better, but if all you've got is a shotgun...

Invinciblehandaxe's picture

the whole regrets you evil fuck is still alive

Automatic Choke's picture

does anybody remember back to the late 80s? early 90s? when Biden was first trying to throw his hat in the ring?    he made a laughingstock out of himself for plagerizing other candidates.  perhaps he thinks folks have forgotten?    yeah, right.

Don't even have to go back that far...lol.

"I'm told Chuck Graham, state senator, is here. Stand up Chuck, let 'em see you. Oh, God love you. (Edit: After recognizing Chuck Graham is in a wheelchair). What am I talking about. I'll tell you what, you're making everybody else stand up, though, pal."

And let us recall that this is the sell out political hack responsible for the 28.99% interest rates being legal and non-usury. And much more.

He had a reputation for blurting out bloopers, well, before he learned not to talk off script in recent years.  One story was that he revealed that all the construction under the Naval Observatory was for a super secret government shelter.  Oops.

I hope that regret burns like a raging case of herpes until his dying day.  Fucking asshole.

Obama actually called this fucking Bozo and told him to "get ready" after drunken Hillary was caught on-camera stumbling toward her Scooby Van after one of her coughing fits...lol.

His biggest regret is going to be sexual exploiting children. This is another pedophile who's freedom is soon coming to an end.

"Since his vice presidential nomination, Joe Biden's 2007 statement that a guy who allegedly drank his lunch and drove the truck that struck and killed his first wife and daughter has gained national media traction.

Alcohol didn't play a role in the 1972 crash, investigators found. But as recently as last week, the syndicated TV show Inside Edition aired a clip from 2001 of Biden describing the accident to an audience at the University of Delaware and saying the truck driver stopped to drink instead of drive.

The senator's statements don't jibe with news and law enforcement reports from the time, which cleared driver Curtis C. Dunn, who died in 1999, of wrongdoing.

To see it coming from [Biden's] mouth, I just burst into tears, Dunn's daughter, Glasgow resident Pamela Hamill, 44, said Wednesday. My dad was always there for us. Now we feel like we should be there for him because he's not here to defend himself.

Biden spokesman David Wade said Wednesday that the senator fully accepts the Dunn family's word that these rumors were false.

It's unclear who first suggested alcohol was a factor in the crash, but since Barack Obama tapped Biden to be his running mate on Aug. 23, The New York Times, National Public Radio and The Economist have run stories that characterized Dunn as a drunken driver.

The rumor about alcohol being involved by either party, especially the truck driver, is incorrect, said Jerome O. Herlihy, a Delaware Superior Court judge who was chief deputy attorney general and worked with crash investigators in 1972.

If it were some part of a cause of the accident, there would have been a charge, simply because if you're driving under the influence and kill someone in the process whether it's the wife of a U.S. senator or anybody else there's going to be a charge, he said.

Herlihy said investigators discussed several possible causes for the crash, including that Biden's first wife, Neilia, turned her head and didn't see the oncoming truck as she exited the intersection of Limestone and Valley roads on Dec. 18, 1972."

- Michelle Malkin from the Delaware News Journal

Sad that the hero of the working class is himself a priveleged middle class scion who smeared a blue collar truck driver to obtain his Senate seat.

"Its like all us boys back at the bar in Scranton used to say..."

Just shut the fuck up Joe.

For years, Michael Dukakis said his nogging brither was killed by a never caught, hit and run drunk driver. Anything for a vote. All Dems have to out victim each other.
