“If he believes the answer to violent crime is not prosecuting felons and fugitives, not prosecuting gun crimes, but going after the constitutional rights of law abiding citizens, I would like to invite the Vice President to engage in an hour long conversation and debate: How do we stop crime?
If Vice President Biden really believes the facts are on his side, that this is not just an exercise in political power by the administration, then I would think he would welcome the opportunity to talk about the sources, the causes of violent crime, who’s carrying it out, and how we can do everything humanly possible to stop it.”
Here’s a preview of what that debate would look like:
Feel free to add your caption to the last photo in the comments, if you want. I thought it worked left blank.
“We got a real clear picture of what they all value,” Vice President Joe Biden said at a campaign event in Virginia yesterday, referring to the Republican budget conceived, in part by newly-minted vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan. “Every Republican’s voted for it. Look at what they value and look at their budget and what they’re proposing. Romney wants to let the — he said in the first hundred days he’s going to let the big banks once again write their own rules, ‘unchain Wall Street.’ They’re going to put y’all back in chains.”
If that’s not a code word or a dog whistle, what is? If it isn’t, it’s only because it’s so overt it’s disqualified as being covert.
In order to cover for Crazy Uncle Joe’s gaffe, the New York Times wrote this:
WASHINGTON — Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. came in for an unapologetic drubbing on Sunday from two prominent Republicans for suggesting last week before a largely African-American audience that Mitt Romney’s policies would unshackle Wall Street but put some Americans “in chains.”
Joe pointed and said, “Y’all.”
He was clearly telling the black folks in attendence that Mitt Romney was going to let Wall Street put them “back in chains.”
They even left out the “back.”
This is why people don’t trust the main stream media. Rather than reporting, they’re carrying water.
Vice President Joe Biden today blamed the Tea Party for the massive failures of his party’s policies.
Just imagine where we would be if the Tea Party hadn’t taken control in 2010? Well, the good news is, you don’t have to imagine. You can just look at the first two years of the Obama Administration and multiple the bad ideas and failures by two.
Pardon me, Joe, but you do remember the first two years of the Obama Administration, don’t you? Isn’t that a BFD anymore?
You had the House and the Senate. You passed pretty much whatever you wanted.
How did the Tea Party taking over the House put the kibosh on all your best laid plans?
The fact is, it didn’t. Your plans failed to deliver and rather than accept the responsibility for your failures, you try to blame someone else. When was the last time a Democratic in the White House took responsibility for a failure? Was it JFK and the Bay of Pigs?
You failed. Your president failed. Your policies failed. Not failed to do what you intended, but failed to do what you claimed they would do, like turn the economy around, create jobs, lift people out of poverty.
And now you have a failure of leadership because you blamed others for your failures.
Pitiful. Just pitiful.
And our overwhelming goal isn’t to defeat Barack Obama this November, it’s to save the country from fiscal collapse.
Defeating Obama is just one of the next actions in that project.
Joe Biden, resident super genius of the Obama Administration, was trying to sell some leftist nonsense today when a baby started wailing. Joe said, “I don’t blame her for crying. She is going to inherit it. She’s going to pay for it. That’s one smart baby.”
Today, that unborn child, now two and quite awesome, owes $49,979.87.
You know what that means, Joe? It means because of your and President Obama’s spending, my son now owe an additional $13,000 and change.
Your deficit spending, more in three years than Bush had in eight, will have to be paid for someday. That crying baby in the audience who you decided to use as a prop to further your agenda will have to pay back whatever loans we take to cover your socialist programs. Plus interest.
Maybe that’s why she was crying. Not because the government may decide to decrease the looting of the American taxpayer, but because you are already burying her in debt.
Just in time for the 2012 campaign season, Vice President Joe Biden calls for a “global minimum tax.”
What’s that? Listen to Joe:
“For years, American manufacturers have faced one of the highest tax rates in the world. We want to reduce that by over 20%. We want to drop the rate, particularly, for high-tech manufacturers like you, Mr. President, even further than the 20%.
“We want to create (what’s called) a global minimum tax, because American taxpayers shouldn’t be providing a larger subsidy for investing abroad than investing at home.”
Leave it to a Democrat to think that the path to economic prosperity is through taxation. It’s beyond this guy’s mental capabilities to comprehend the concept that economic strength is found in free markets, not markets dominated by government meddling.
Vice President Joe Biden said Thursday “we’re not claiming victory” in Iraq, but he believes the emerging government in Baghdad is capable of defending itself.
Interviewed on NBC’s “Today” show from Iraq, Biden was asked about the impact of the U.S. combat troop withdrawal, likely to be complete within weeks. He replied, “This is no rush.”
Biden added that in the three years of the Obama administration, “We’ve done this in a way that nobody thought could be done.”
Is the success of The Surge the part that nobody thought could be done? Is that what he is talking about?
What exactly did this administration do?
“We’re not claiming victory,” he said. “What we’re claiming here is we’ve done our job the administration said it would do. To end a war we did not start, to end it in a responsible way … and to leave in place the prospect of a trained military, a trained security force under democratic institutions where the disparate parties for the first time are actually working together.”
He acknowledged security concerns — dramatized by two separate attacks that officials say killed 17 people Thursday in a northeastern Iraqi province — but said that “violence is at an all-time low” since 2002.
No thanks to Biden or Obama.
They rode the coattails of a successful surge, which Biden and his boss opposed, then came out on the other side of it, refused to declare victory and are now prepping to leave the country.
That is some top notch work. Heaven forbid he give some credit to the military, who gave their blood, sweat and tears to turn that country from a “quagmire,” to the country we see today. No, that wasn’t their doing. It was Biden and Obama.
Forget about telling the world our military dominated the forces of Islamic radicalism who came from across the world to kill us in Iraq, only to be sent to their graves.
“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.
