As Twitchy reported, Vice President Biden appeared on today’s edition of “The View,” where he attempted to explain how Obamacare-induced unemployment “gives women a great deal more freedom.” But that wasn’t the only thing he said that made us cringe. He also discussed a potential presidential bid:

"The first objective here is to keep…I mean win…the House and keep the Senate." -Uncle Joe Biden on @theviewtv about prez run.

Just think: After suffering through two Obama terms, we could have four to eight more years of this:

Walters: I do not expect you to come on this program and announce that you’re going to run for president. I won’t object if you want to — do you want to?
Biden: I’ll tell you what, I’ll make you a deal: If you stick around, I will announce my decision with you.
Walters: I’m not sure that’s a deal I can accept, but it’s very flattering. So, let me try coming in backwards: If Hillary does not run, will you — you have said that if she runs for president, you will not run —
Biden: No, I haven’t.
Walters: Then tell me what you said.
Biden: The only reason to run for president of the United States is if you truly believe you’re in a better position to do what you think is most needed in the country. I think my knowledge of foreign policy, my engagement with world leaders, my experience is — uniquely positions me to follow through on the agenda Barack and I have of bringing up world peace in a way that is real and substantive. I also think the middle class is the single focus of what we should be looking at, and how to grow it. And so whether she runs or not will not affect my decision.
Walters: You haven’t said no.
Biden: No, I absolutely have not said no. It’s as likely I run as I don’t run. I just truly haven’t made up my mind. The good news is, everything I think I would have to do to be a viable candidate is the same exact thing I should be doing to be the best vice president I can possibly be.
Walters: Well, I don’t think there’s much doubt that you’re a superb vice president.
OK, let’s stop right there. Entertaining? Yes. “Superb”? Not even close.
Nevertheless, there are still deluded people out there who’d love to see a President Uncle Joe:
Joe Biden is on the View really sounding like he is considering a presidential run…
