Vice President Joe Biden recently said in Flint, Michigan that if Republicans didn’t pass the president’s jobs bill, rapes and murders would continue to rise in the troubled town.
“In 2008, when Flint had 265 sworn officers on their police force, there were 35 murders and 91 rapes in this city,” Biden said. “In 2010, when Flint had only 144 police officers, the murder rate climbed to 65 and rapes–just to pick two categories–climbed to 229. In 2011, you now only have 125 shields. God only knows what the numbers will be this year for Flint if we don’t rectify it.”
Jason Mattera, editor of Human Events, and someone I have already said I have a man crush on, found a way to get next to the vice president and asked him if he should be using rape references to attack the Republicans.
Joe did not react well:
I love the way the staffer at the end shouts, “Who are you with?!”
It’s like she’s shocked anyone dare question the vice president on anything. He’s lucky Jason didn’t ask him for a reference on a good hair transplant surgeon.
