Did you hear what Joe Biden said today? Uppity asked me to make up a handy-dandy reference list. Consider it a work in progress as you never know what he’ll say next! In other words, check for updates, often!
So Joe was invited to an event honoring Walter Mondale. And, Joe being Joe, naturally decided to make the event ALL ABOUT HIMSELF!!
I guess he was trying to contrast himself with Hillary Clinton, since he’s kind of running against her….without actually doing the running part. You didn’t have to bother, Joe, we know you’re NOTHING like Hillary Clinton! Anyway, one gaffe…led to another…and another…you get the idea.
He said that Hillary was “naive” because she listed the Republicans as enemies. You know, that throw away line at the end of the debate when she was asked about which enemy she was proud to have. We all laughed when she rattled off the list that included, the NRA, the Iranians and with a little pause for comedic effect….the Republicans! But not Joe! Apparently, he found that comment very disturbing!! Very disturbing indeed!
“It is possible, it is necessary to end this notion that enemy is the other party,” Biden told the crowd of Washington notables that included members of Congress and former President Jimmy Carter. “End this notion that it is naïve to think we can speak well of the other party and cooperation. What is naïve is to think it is remotely possible to govern this country unless we can. That is what is naïve.”
Then, he said that he, really liked Darth Vadar, aka Dick Cheney.
“I actually like Dick Cheney, for real,” he said. “I think he’s a decent man.”
I’m sure he was so proud of himself for saying that, being all bi-partisan and stuff. Until Mondale burst his bubble, that bully!
But after Mondale pushed back, arguing that Cheney had taken the vice presidency to the “dark side,” Biden quickly walked back his remark, claiming there was “no similarity” between Cheney’s record and his own
Wait, wait….I didn’t say I LIKED Dick Cheney, well out loud I did…but in the private conversation in my head….I really said he’s a terrible man, I hate him!
He also changed his story on the Bin Laden raid. First, he said that he had been against the raid that got Bin Laden, but he really meant that he was for the raid. When he was saying he was against it…got it?
He got to me. He said, ‘Joe, what do you think?’ And I said, ‘You know, I didn’t know we had so many economists around the table.’ I said, ‘We owe the man a direct answer. Mr. President, my suggestion is, don’t go. We have to do two more things to see if he’s there,” Biden recalled in 2012.
He claims now that didn’t want to share his true feelings in front of others, like you know, the Cabinet, national security team….shhhh….this was just between him and the POTUS. They have that “special” relationship. They walked, arm in arm up to Joe’s office, I mean, the President’s office, the oval office and then Joe could share his TRUE feelings!!
He also knew about the Bin Laden intelligence WAAAAAYY before anyone else did (read: Clinton) because, well, his BFF Potus told him so!
“The President and I, and only two others in the administration, knew about Abbottabad as early as August” 2010, Biden said Tuesday. “We did not go for almost a year to get him. And major players in the Cabinet did not know about it till January or February (2011).”
Finally, I shouldn’t say finally, we know there will be more…he talked up his creds with Obama. How they spend about ” four to seven hours a day together.” Everyday!!
According to Joe, their bro-mance was on from the get-go!
“It started off that I knew I was simpatico with the president-elect,” he said. “We had a genuine relationship.”
Obama even let him make all the really big decisions….it was a big f@#%ing deal!
Biden said Obama granted him the ability to sign off on all Cabinet picks — implying that he agreed to allow Clinton to become secretary of State.
And when it comes to foreign policy, who needs a Secretary of State when you’ve got Joe Biden on your team! Why he negotiates with world leaders even though he’s spending 4-7 hours a day chewing the fat with the president…..where does he find the time???
“We’ve had two great secretaries of State, but when I go, they know that I am speaking for the president,” Biden said.
I leave you with this tidbit, that Joe didn’t actually say today. In fairness, he said it in an interview in 1974. However, I think it’s relevant today, especially in light of his treatment of Anita Hill and all of the woman groping he’s done.
“When it comes to issues like abortion, amnesty, and acid, I’m about as liberal as your grandmother. I don’t like the Supreme Court decision on abortion. I think it went too far. I don’t think that a woman has the sole right to say what should happen to her body,”
I bet you don’t Mr. Joe, “some women are like that” Biden! Some women… no, make that all women… actually DO think we have sole right to say what should happen to our bodies.
