Is Economist's Depature a Sign Biden Will Not Be on the 2012 Ticket?

Jared Bernstein, Vice President Joe Biden‘s economic adviser will leave the administration at the end of the month, a White House official said, according to WSJ.

Bernstein is headed to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and, according to WSJ, is in advanced talks to be an on-air commentator for Bloomberg News Service’s television network.

While WSJ is portraying Bernstein's departure as a result of the budget cutting atmosphere in Washington and that Bernstein wants to be able to promote stimulus spending from the outside, a friend, somewhat familiar with the situation, suggests that Bernstein suspects Vice-President Biden will not be on the 2012 Democratic ticket and that he wants to leave from a position of strength, before any announcement is made on Biden.


  1. Could this be because of Biden fell asleep at an inopportune time?

    I think Biden is like a weird genetic experiment that combined Homer Simpson with Gerald Ford and Jeff Dunham's puppet Walter.

  2. Gerald Ford is 100 times the man deadhead Biden imagines himself to be. Biden is the type of politician that has been destroying this country.

  3. Like Ford never helped destroy the country? Give me a break. While he might have had more sense than Biden, Ford was still a muppet.

  4. There will be many more.... Like rats leaving a sinking ship.
