Biden has Definitely Fired Up the Ole' Gaffe-O-Mattic


With all this seriousness going on around Opie and I have come up with two or three topics, on the lighter side, to keep things humorous and in perspective. Besides there is nothing newsworthy going on, somebody said something about some $700 billion Wall Street bail out and John McCain suspending his candidacy for the Presidency. Right now these are just rumors(being sarcastic), so we are going to bring you something really news worthy courtesy of Joe Biden.

I don't dislike Joey, he is a devoted family man and devoted Senator, can't stand his politics though. What I love most about him is the constant foot-in-mouth disease he suffers from. God, how could you ask for any better, here is a list of the most recent and growing list.

Biden on an ad the Obama campaign was running concerning John McCain.

-"I thought that was terrible, by the way. I didn't know we did it and if I had anything to do with it, we'd have never done it," he told the CBS “Evening News” in reference to this Obama-Biden ad. [1]

On his Congressional trip to Afghanistan.

-"If you want to know where Al Qaeda lives, you want to know where Bin Laden is, come back to Afghanistan with me. ... Come back to the area where my helicopter was forced down, with a three-star general and three senators at 10,500 feet in the middle of those mountains. I can tell you where they are," he said to the National Guard Association. (According to ABC News, Biden's helicopter was forced down by a snowstorm). [1]

Speaking about the economic meltdown.

-“When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the princes of greed,” Biden told Couric. “He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened." [2]

Problem is Hoover was President when the stock market crashed and there was no television.

Joe on rich folks paying more taxes to help get the country out of the rut, lol.

-Biden said: "It's time to be patriotic ... time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut." [3]

Biden on coal usage.

-"We're not supporting 'clean coal.' [4]

Now keep in mind two things: 1) Biden is from Pennsylvania, where coal mining is big business. 2) Obama supports clean coal initiatives.

Biden on diplomatic initiatives with Iran.

-After seven years, in which our senior diplomatic personnel were not allowed to make a single contact with Iranians, the Bush administration realized the absurdity of its own policy and sent our leading diplomat to Iran,” he said. “The Assistant Secretary of State as he went to Tehran, sat down at the instruction of the President of the United States. [5]

Keep in mind that the Democrats, Obama included, have long stated and criticized the President for using "cowboy diplomacy" especially with Iran. When he opens the door, they slam it in his face.

Gaffe cred to 30yrdem-not any more.

I am sure there will be more and if there are any I overlooked please make note in the comments box and I will add them to the list. This was just to funny to pass up.
