If Joe Biden gets the nomination, the real president might just be his vice-president. Biden’s mental issues are no joke. That’s why Whoopi Goldberg was quick to say it’s time Barack Obama come out of retirement and become Joe’s Veep. “It’s not illegal,” Goldberg said twice with confidence on Wednesday’s taping of The View. Well, that’s when Americans gave her a huge reality check. You’ll love this.
Barack Obama never got to “transform” America the way he and his far-left socialist pals were hoping, and Joe Biden is not in any condition to become president. So, if the Democrat Party elites get their way and he does pull off the nomination (with a lot of help from them), you bet his pick for vice-president will be the real power behind the throne.
Whoopi Goldberg knows this. That’s why she was so sure of herself when she floated the idea that Barry Obama comes out of retirement.
Goldberg said, “So I had another — I’ve been sitting here — I’ve been crazy all morning.”
Co-host Meghan McCain said, “It’s a crazy time.”
Goldberg said, “I’m sorry. I’m just going to do my crazy right now.”
McCain said, “I like it. I like when we go rogue.”
Goldberg continued, “Everybody was thinking about who could the VP be for Joe. I thought, oh man, what would happen if Joe Biden said my choice for VP is Barack Obama?”
After the audience cheered, Goldberg said, “He won’t, but it’s not illegal.”
McCain said, “It’s not going to happen.”
ABC legal analyst and co-host Sunny Hostin said, “I don’t think it’s illegal.”
Goldberg said, “It’s not illegal.”
Co-host Joy Behar said, “But you have to be eligible to run for president when you’re the vice president and he can’t.”
Goldberg said, “That’s not true.”
So is it illegal? Legal scholars are split on this issue.
“The answer seems to be pretty straightforward. The 12th Amendment to the Constitution states that ‘no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.’ And the 22nd Amendment, the political response to Franklin Roosevelt’s impressive run of presidential victories, capped presidents to two terms,” Washington Post reports.
The left-leaning Post quickly points out that technically if you assume the presidency due to being the vice-president, then you aren’t getting “elected” to a third term. See how that works? Of course, there are scores of other legal scholars who would make the case that workaround isn’t the “spirit” of the Amendment.
CBS News talked with experts at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. They say the 12th amendment takes the guesswork out of it, and the answer is no. President Obama, or any other former President, would not be able to be Vice President.
This is a safety net to keep a President from serving three terms, elected or not.
That’s why Americans torched Whoopi for suggesting Obama’s third term.

It’s preposterous to conservatives that the Democrats would get into a legal battle to make Obama the Veep nominee.
However, it’s not crazy to those like Whoopi Goldberg and other Obamaites who long for the resurgence of his failed presidency. The Trump-haters at the Washington Post are so excited to see this happen. They are already laying the legal groundwork in case the Biden campaign wants to consider it.
Well, that isn’t going to work for the majority of the American people who saw Hillary Clinton as four more years of the same tired policies that Barack Obama failed at for eight long years.
