More Pearls From Joe Biden

There are many truths of life, one of those is: If Joe Biden’s lips are moving, he’s putting his foot in his mouth.

The Vice President has been working over-time so much so his tongue is being examined for the possibility of athletes foot.

First there was the Veep on the stump with Richard Trumka railing against Republicans and anybody who thinks collective bargaining by public unions is breaking the back of many states.  Biden states:

 “Let’s get something straight: The only people who have the capacity — organizational capacity and muscle — to keep, as they say, the barbarians from the gate, is organized labor.”

Hey, Joe!  Just who are the barbarians (of course he referring to you, me and the Wisconsin Republicans)?  What am I talking about?  Union supporters and members have been sending the Wisconsin Governor and Republicans letters and the letters are not love letters.  Here is an example of the contents of one of these letters:

“Please put your things in order because you will be killed and your families will be killed due to your actions I the last 8 weeks. Please explain to them that this is because if we get rid of you and your families then it will save the rights of 300,000 people and also be able to close the deficit that you have created. I hope you have a good time in hell.” 

I think this is what Biden meant when he said the Unions are the only organizations with the muscle.  Just ask any elderly counter-protester to the SEIU about their union muscle.

Second example of foot-in-mouth disease,  Joe Biden, at a fundraiser in Philadelphia, said:

 Republicans who want to cut spending while at the same time cutting taxes for the wealthy are similar to rape apologists.

Undaunted by his own words the Veep takes a departure from reality as he rails against Republicans “whose philosophy threw us into this God-awful hole we’re in, gave us the tremendous deficit we’ve inherited“.

I would caution Biden to stay out of those waters.  He might also want to check out the latest consumer confidence numbers  (down to a two year low nearly matching the C.C. from the depths of the recession).  Biden might not want to look at mortgage foreclosures either, as 3.8 million homes could be foreclosed on, up 23% over 2008 and up 2% over 2009. 

Since taking office Biden and his boss have expanded domestic spending by 4 times the Bush levels and it is not doing a whole lot for America, but that’s OK because the spending is doing a lot for their friends in the…you guessed itUnions.

What would we do without Joe Biden though.  During the Depression the public turned to Vaudeville to get their minds of the current state of being, in this time in history, we turn to another form of comedy and fantasy, rants by Joe Biden.
