Actually, if Obama were accused of just one of the shady dealings that come up about Romney and his crew on a daily basis, Fox News would be calling for a revolution.

It's rather ironic that the only people offended by what Biden said continue to be old and white.

Biden makes plenty of gaffs, but I think he would have better sense than to imply that the British government had botched the Olympic preparations on a trip designed to show his diplomatic skills.

Yes, because when I am screaming and throwing things at the screen while watching MtP, it's because David Gregory's questions are just too provocative.

The man is a human pit bull. He needs to back down!

Da's 'cause de colored be to dumb to understand.


And I can understand why a Republican elected official is a little touchy about how Democrats are treated about race issues. Trent Lott said a lot less and he got tarred and feathered over the deal. Do you remember him on BET trying to apologize?? Democrats can have former Klan members and all is cool, however if one guy was a Dixiecrat and has an R by his name you're not allowed to praise him at his retirement party?!

Well, it would be pretty stupid for a Democratic vice-president to become a Republican.
But it does seem to be a prerequisite for joining the GOP these days.

I wish there was a hell for Peggy Noonan to burn in for a while for her comments on Bush's torture. She'll never be forgiven for that in my book. So fark yourself, you farking child.

Biden has been on Meet the Press about 40 times. And each and every time, he's been an impressive and knowledgeable speaker.

He's not the most polished guy in the room, so he studies hard and makes sure he knows what he's talkign about.

I can see how the GOP would take style over substance, however. They are sadly lacking in both.

He said we'd be better off if a man who ran on a segregationist platform was elected president.  So yeah, Trent deserves what he got.

My conderpative friend has said we cannot make fun of any of the major gaffs from W, because he was dyslexic and that would be insensitive.

If Biden were Republican, Fox News would call for his death on treason for being a RINO and working closely with Obama.

Used to have a bagger in the office who thought Biden was a grave threat to the immediate safety of the republic. And also, that Palin would make gas go to $1.50 a gallon, and jesus would be happy or something.

/dunno if he ever figured out that $1.50/gal gas would mean him being out of a job and his neighborhood being a ghost town, but...

Did your conderpative friend suffer from a major head injury recently? I ask, because I'm about to pull a Morbo and say, "DYSLEXIA DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY."

Biden is fulfilling his role perfectly. It takes a special breed of idiot to make Obama look better. It is why Obama couldn't pick Hillary - she was too smart. Biden, the plagiarist, is a mental midget whose ability to appear smart is only superseded by Obama himself. When those two enter a room, the collective IQ doesn't raise more than a couple of dozen points.

in the 50s! And as a Democrat! Well a Dixiecrat. And I really doubt that Trent remembered or ever knew the platform that Strom ran on half a century ago. A off handed comment at an old man's retirement party ended him. And Biden gets away from a planned and executed race baiting of epic proportions

LOL. That was funny. Either you're a moron, or you're trolling. Or both, even. Strom Thurmond's opinion on race were known and had been known for DECADES at that point. Come off it.

See what I mean? Trent Lott was praising Thurmond FOR his racist postilion. I understand why that distinction wouldn't be significant to most right wingers.

Well he will be "one heart beat" away from being President. Looks like he is the clown car of this election.

The VP debate will be epic.

Do you think he ended his career as pro segregation? No! He had non-whites on his staff as early as the 70. I know that's not wonderful but it's not bad for a Southern Congressman.

Oh, he said the nation would be better off under a segregationist on accident!  Well then, this changes everything.

Forget Meet the Press. They made a whole movie out of it. I'm holding my breath until the Joe Biden movie comes out. I am sure it is right around the corner.
 
2012-08-20 11:57:09 AM  
I think all this focus on Biden is because they're worried that Biden is going to make Ryan look like a fool in the debates, so they're working on tearing him down in advance.
 
2012-08-20 11:57:40 AM  
Biden is dumb, but he's a lib so the press protects him and treats him differently than if he was Repub.

No news there.

I would say that I'm looking forward to the VP debate, but those things end up being so canned that if there is 1 zinger during the whole thing everyone acts like it was a big deal.
 
2012-08-20 11:59:49 AM  
Keep using talking points from 4 years ago. The public will no doubt forget that he's been VP for 4 years.

Ok ok ok Strom is a horrible person and anyone who says anything nice about him shouldn't hold public office.

This means that Obama is leader for life and Biden is head of the NAACP.

/Does this mean that anyone who says something nice about Robert Bird is forced to resign?
 
2012-08-20 12:09:42 PM  
As big an idiot as Biden is, I still give Obama the award for "You didn't build that".

That seriously ticked off small business owners across the country.

I will use smaller words for you. Obama, whose ego would not let him have a VP that was smarter than himself, had to scrape the bottom of the barrel to find somebody that met those qualifications. Ergo, we end up with the plagiarist as VP. Biden is the only person in DC that is stupider than Obama - well, maybe Maxine Waters and Cynthia McKinney.

Sure, if Robert Bird ran for president on a KKK platform and someone later said they thought the coutry would be better off if he'd won they shouldn't be in politics.

The funny thing about this "Biden is an idiot" thing is that soon enough Ryan is going to have to debate him.  So we'll get to watch that "idiot" wipe the floor with Romey's VP.

On the other hand, Biden won't need to hold back as much as he did with Palin in order to not come off as cruel. Paul doesn't have the advantage of being a nobody strong, intelligent Conservative woman of whom liberals around the world are terrified.
