Stacey Abrams Rejects Being Joe Biden’s Pre-Named VP: I’m “just as capable of becoming the President”

Stacey Abrams Rejects Being Joe Biden’s Pre-Named VP: I’m “just as capable of becoming the President”

“I think you don’t run for second place.”

There has been speculation about Stacey Abrams entering the 2020 race on a ticket with former Vice President Joe Biden as his running mate. During an appearance on The View, she said that’s not going to happen.

Abrams said she is open to anything down the road, but made it clear that if she enters the race for 2020, she’ll do it on her own.

Christen Hill reports at ABC News:

Stacey Abrams on ABC’s The View: ‘You don’t run for second place.’

Democratic rising star Stacey Abrams teased her political future during an appearance on “The View” Wednesday saying that “I think you don’t run for second place.”

Her comments and appearance on the show come just after her recent lunch with former Vice President Joe Biden and amid speculation of joining the 2020 fray as his running mate swirl.

“If I’m going to enter a primary, I’m going to enter the primary,” she said on The View during an appearance to promote her new book “Lead from the Outside.” “I do not know if I am running, I am thinking about everything.”

Abrams previously said during a recent speech at Vanderbilt University, she is willing to meet with any candidate running for president in 2020 under two conditions: “My two requirements. One, you have to tell me what you’re going to do about voter suppression. And two, you have to believe Georgia is a swing state.”

In the video below, after they talk 2020, the discussion moves on to Joe Biden’s recent apology over his questioning of Anita Hill. At the end, she confirms that she still doesn’t accept the outcome of the 2018 governor race in Georgia:

On CBS News, Abrams indicated she considers herself a potential presidential candidate:

“I think the success I had in our election… positions me to be just as capable of becoming the President of the United States as anyone running. My responsibility though, is to make sure I’m running for the right reasons and at the right time.”

When it comes to the Biden ticket rumors, one Abrams adviser made it clear that it wasn’t going to happen with some pretty sharp words.

Andrew Stiles reports at the Washington Free Beacon:

Stacey Abrams Aide Slams Joe Biden’s ‘Exploitative’ VP Offer

The Democratic primary race continues to produce a fair share of drama, even among candidates who aren’t officially running yet.

Former Vice President Joe Biden is likely to launch a campaign sometime next month, amid rumors that he might pre-select a running mate to spice up his entrance into a crowded field. Rumors are swirling after Biden reportedly met with Stacey Abrams, the Georgia gubernatorial candidate who refuses to admit defeat in the race she lost to Republican Brian Kemp…

Team Abrams, however, is reportedly frustrated by the rumors, not least because they’d like to see more consideration given to the possibly of Abrams running for president herself. Abrams herself has argued race was a factor in the underwhelming media attention she has received compared to former congressman and failed Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke.

When it comes to Biden, some Abrams supporters are said to be concerned about the former vice president’s problematic record on race and criminal justice. One Abrams adviser had some particularly harsh words for Biden in light of his rumored offer to join the ticket as his running mate.

“What makes it particularly exploitative is that Biden couldn’t be bothered to endorse Stacey in the gubernatorial primary,” the adviser told BuzzFeed News. “Now he wants her to save his ass. That’s some serious entitlement.”

That sounds like a definitive no.

For the Democrat (Socialist) Party losing puts you at the head of the line. Give your regards to Beto.

Prediction: Stacey Abrams doesn’t get first or second place.

No nomination, no Veep nomination, no relevancy at all come the final 2020 race.

She is just as capable of being forgotten as the majority of nomination seekers are.

    The funniest part is that it looks like Biden launched this talk about making her VP without once talking to her about it. He and his people just thought she would be awed by his presence. What a nest of snakes, all of them.

      MajorWood in reply to Tom Servo. | March 30, 2019 at 10:54 am

      Actually a good move on Biden’s team’s part. They make an innocuous comment and then sit back while she takes herself out of the race with a rebuttal. None of these attention whores have learned the importance of STFU.

        C. Lashown in reply to MajorWood. | March 31, 2019 at 11:22 am

        She’s angry because word came via the grapevine that Biden refused to fondle her….unless she took a shower (with soap). Claims are that Uncle Joe found her to greasy for his tastes.

    JusticeDelivered in reply to PrincetonAl. | March 29, 2019 at 11:08 am

    She is dumb and ugly as sin. What makes her think she can win? Arrogant and dumb.

    thalesofmiletus in reply to PrincetonAl. | March 29, 2019 at 12:12 pm

    The only thing she running for in 2020 is to the Krispy Kreme on Free Donut Day.

Real rocket scientist, she is.

    And we’re talking *VERY LARGE* rocket.

      Beyond Saturn V…..not the weight….The ego.

      In Alaska…an ER visit would have a presenting dx of “mistakenly harpooned”.

    My failure to win a state-wide election in my home state proves that I have what it takes to win nation-wide!

    Lol, gotta love lefty logic.

She’s running on Identity Politics and pure rage

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to Yujin. | March 29, 2019 at 7:52 am

    The sad part: those two things will get her more votes than we may want to think possible.

    Neo in reply to Yujin. | March 29, 2019 at 12:44 pm

    The narcissism is strong in this one.

    I can only guess that she stayed at a Holiday Inn Express.

caseoftheblues | March 29, 2019 at 7:24 am

“rising star”….haha
Democrats embrace every form of failure…

Democrats are like a bucket of crabs. As one crab climbs to the top of the bucket, the others pull it back down.

Talking about thing that are not going to happen ….

Apparently she didn’t get the memo. The powers that be who run and fund the Democrat Party have already decided that the 2020 nominee will be a white male. Women and POCs need not apply. Your choices are “Sleazy Joe”, “Crazy Bernie” or “Holywood Robert”.

A state representative who lost a gubernatorial election thinks she is just as capable of winning the presidency as anyone else. Right…Then again we did pick a guy who had only ever been a senator for two years.

I will cross party line and vote for her in the primary

Just thinking out loud. I think Abrams will be one of the back-up black options should the Wookie choose not to run in an effort to keep the black vote corralled within the Dem party. But because of the investigations now just starting that will investigate this entire coup attempt, I think the Wookie will run for the same reason Biden is running: the temporary political immunity of political candidates. Yes, Biden is dirty.

Suddenly, Trump is very strong and that is terrifying the Swamp. Trump is playing cat and mouse with those demanding the release of the Mueller findings. When release, the Dems will again be humiliated when their lies are once again exposed. Will Trump then lure them into one more chance to again double down on stupid?

Yesterday, Rand Paul called for calling Obama to testify on his role in this whole affair. So that part begins. And Rove suddenly comes out of the woodwork to give Trump “advice” about moving past Mueller. So now we know the Bush camp is nervous too. Yes, they are dirty too. “Brother from another mother?”

This whole “worse than Hitler” collusion conspiracy is unraveling like a pass-me-down cheap suit. It is just getting started and Trump is pouncing. I can’t wait to watch the rats scatter.

Winning!!!!

Stacy Abrams – A legend in her own mind.

Nasty thing ought to try pushing herself away from the supper table.

Joe should offer the ticket to Cory Booker, two of a kind.

Just as capable of “becoming the President” as Biden? Is that low self esteem, or a realistic self-assessment?

Either one would be a catastrophe for the country if elected, though.

Just another delusional woman-puppet of color — seems like they’re ranting and raving all over these days and the levels of incompetence are nightmarish (think: Chicago and Baltimore, for starters).

What’s the politically correct female form for the Peter Principle?

Joe Biden? Seriously?

She might waddle for the nomination but she sure does not appear to be able to run.

As capable as “Plugs” Biden is not saying much.

She’s just as capable of becoming the President as she is capable of becoming the Vice President. Which is not at all, ever.

Well, at least she can fight against type 2 diabetes

Ah Stacy–the one place that I know you are “first” for sure is in the chow line. Roley poley is no way to campaign.

Ugh, I guess lipstick can be put on a pig.

…“just as capable of becoming the President”…

Reminds me of some folk who will say, “I’m no worse than the next guy.”

You then ask, “And…just how closely have you looked at ‘the next guy’ anyway?”

It gets them thinking.

As said in Animal House, “Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life”. Go get a job and pay your debts loser.

That’s some funny shit right there. Her? President? I snorted hot coffee through my nose. That hurt.

What do you get when you raise kids by stoking racial animosity while at the same time propping up their self-esteem at the expense of teaching them to think rationally? Arrogant racist idiots like this woman.

It would seem that the democrap party prefers the most intellectually deficient candidates it can find. Add physically failing and it’s almost a sure thing.

I had to watch this ugly person nightly here in GA during the gubernatorial election and it was an example of the victimhood platform that is now the mantra of the Demorat party. Everything she did or said blamed someone else for the problems. Never once did she accept any responsibility for her back taxes nor huge personal debt. She wanted to count any and every vote no matter the source because she knew that all poor, illegal and minority people would vote for her. But like I said before, almost half of the people voted for her. All of the big metropolitan areas voted for her and that includes huge college campuses. What I/we see and what libs sees in her are two totally different things.

    casualobserver in reply to inspectorudy. | March 29, 2019 at 1:51 pm

    My brother lives in GA and he tells me the GOP is still stuck in that “Georgians are reliable Republican voters” and don’t put much effort into statewide elections. Meanwhile, the Dems have millions of outside money pouring in and growing with each election. And they have a massive GOTV effort. So the chances that Georgia goes more Dem soon are pretty good he thinks. After all, the whole identity politics, America was never great, victimhood tactic serves the GOTV purpose very well all across the U.S. And it’s working better and better in GA, FL, TX. It’s a part of the plan.

She made a factually correct statement:

I think the success I had in our election… positions me to be just as capable of becoming the President of the United States as anyone running.

She’s correct: she’s absolutely as capable as Biden, Warren, Beto, and the other Democratic candidates.

That, of course, is precisely the problem.

I’m having trouble imagining the top military brass taking orders from this fine specimen of “something”

Noticed that she studied at the University of Texas LBJ School of Political Mischief

This ought to be fun

So how is she ever going to know if she loses since she obviously doesn’t know that she lost in Georgia?

And since she claims she won, why doesn’t she go to the Governor’s Mansion and try to move in? Or start vetoing stuff? Why isn’t she taking her case all the way to the Supreme Court?

Close The Fed | March 29, 2019 at 1:21 pm

The dems have picked up Hillary’s line of “I won if the rules were different, so I won,” and are running with it.

Abrams has picked this up – she didn’t invent it. She should not have. We have a history of mostly peaceful and orderly transitions. If it gets damaged enough, another facet of our country turns banana republic and she isn’t really high enough on the totem pole to avoid the negative fallout of that kind of world.

Also, being a state senator, u.s. rep., isn’t enough to make you Prez material. Much as I identify Biden as THE village idiot, he looks good on paper.

As many of me and my sister’s dates do… then we meet them. . . .

She thinks she has just as good a chance as Biden? Well, Honey, that ain’t saying much.

I can picture her in the Oval Office…taken in the recreation oof one in the Obama Presidential Library….if and when that ever gets built.

Being qualified to be president. Yes she is. Being capable of being president is a whole different thing. E.G. Obama
