You have to love this guy. Who wouldnâ€™t want to be a reporter able to follow him around on a daily basis? This weekend he called a custard shop manager a â€œsmart assâ€ for asking him to lower taxes, but this is just one of a long line of brilliant moves by our VP.
Letâ€™s reminisce a little on Joeâ€™s greatest hits:
#10 “A man I’m proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next President of the United States — Barack America!”
#9 Biden encouraged viewers to visit a government-run Web site that tracks stimulus spending. When asked for the site’s web address, Biden could not remember the site’s “number.””You know, I’m embarrassed. Do you know the Web site number?” he asked an aide standing out of view. “I should have it in front of me and I don’t. I’m actually embarrassed.”
#8 “I would tell members of my family, and I have, I wouldn’t go anywhere in confined places right now,” Biden said. “It’s not that itâ€™s going to Mexico, it’s that you are in a confined aircraft when one person sneezes, it goes everywhere through the aircraft. That’s me.”
#7 and #6 “When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened,” he said.Uh, Joeâ€¦Herbert Hoover was President and the television had not been invented.
#5 “Look, John’s last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number-one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs.”
#4 “Chuck, stand up, let the people see you,” Biden shouted to State Senator Chuck Graham, before realizing, to his horror, that Graham uses a wheelchair. “Oh, God love ya,” Biden said. “What am I talking about?”
#3 “God rest her soul,” Biden said as he introduced Brian Cowen and Obama. Biden then realized his mother was, in fact, still living, and tried to fix it…”Wait … your mom’s still, your mom is still alive. It was your dad (who) passed. God bless her soul. I gotta get this straight,” Biden said.
#2 “This is a big f—ing deal,” during the bill-signing ceremony for the health insurance overhaul
#1 “People, when I say that, look at me and say, ‘What are you talking about, Joe? You’re telling me we have to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt?” he said at a stop in Virginia. “The answer is yes.”To think the liberals used to make fun of Dan Quayleâ€™s â€œpotatoeâ€ spelling makes this even more humorous.
Getting back to the â€œCustard Caperâ€â€¦Since current polls reveal that 64% of Americans believe taxes need to be lowered, I suppose Loose Lips Joe is calling a large majority of the nation smartasses. Of course this is nothing new. When is the last time the Obama administration supported anything that was additionally supported by a majority of Americans? Since being elected this administration has regularly strong-armed the majority of Americans and forced them to accept the policies formulated by a radical leftist fringe element which rarely tops 20% of Americans support.
The administration has filed a suit against the state of Arizona for their illegal immigration bill; a bill supported by a large majority of Arizonans and the nation as a whole.
The administration force-fed the healthcare reform legislation in spite of the fact that a majority of Americans opposed it. Currently, 55% of Americans support repeal of this bill.
In spite of the spill in the Gulf, 58% of Americans support more off-shore oil drilling. The administration has used the disaster as a catalyst to stop the drilling.Mortgage bailouts??? Twenty-three percent (23%) of Adults say if someone cannot afford to pay their increased mortgage payments, it’s better for the government to assist them in making those payments.
A majority (62%) believe it’s better for the person to sell their home and move into a less expensive one. King Nanny State Supporter Obama loves to bail everyone out.
The Obama presidency has contradicted the Constitution as well as the wishes of mainstream Americans on so many occasions since being elected that nearly half of Americans now see the government as a threat to individual rights rather than a protector of those rights. This may be the most disturbing poll result of all.By now Obama has to know his days are numbered and it is now just a matter of how much destruction and carnage he can cause before he and his congressional majority are voted away. I pray we still have some semblance of a nation when all is said and done.
