Posts Tagged ‘Joe Biden’

Wonder what you would find if you frisked Vice President Joe Biden during President Obama’s failed budget speech?

Answer: He appeared to be a little tired.

Oops!

The Los Angeles Times reports:

Vice President Joe Biden was given another big job by President Obama on Wednesday and the burden may have driven Obama’s go-to guy into a moment of sleep or, at least, contemplation.

Biden, who has more than a nodding acquaintance with deficits, debts and federal budget woes, was caught apparently deep in thought or catching a few winks while Obama outlined his plan for dealing with the deficit.

Don’t worry, because Joe Biden did not miss much. President Obama simply resorted to a bunch of recycled rhetoric he has used in the past. His plan to fix our deficit: Spend more taxpayer money, borrow more, tax the so-called “wealthy”, and cut defense. In other words, it was all expected. President Obama is a liberal who adores big government and tiptoes around our enormous entitlement programs (Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid) which are pushing us closer to the edge of a real crisis.

Calm down Joe!

Wonder what you would find if you frisked Vice President Joe Biden during the signing of the socialized health-care bill in the White House today?

Answer: Apparently, he believes that Obama-Care “is a big f***ing deal!”

HAHA! 😆 Crazy Joe was back at it again today folks! It’s time to add another mishap to Biden’s – already cluttered – track record of mistakes.

Mediaite reports:

After giving a short warm-up speech in advance of President Obama’s speech, Biden turned to embrace the President and said “this is a big f***ing deal!”

Haha… I bet White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs is thrilled about this whole mess, because now he will have to attempt to downplay the whole cursing dilemma. Wait a minute… It appears Gibbs has already:

Tossing around a little bit of Obama-Care humor, maybe? Don’t worry White House, I probably dropped more F-Bombs than Biden did here when President Obama’s socialized health-care reform passed the U.S. House of Representatives… Thanks for destroying our liberty, freedom, and our grandchildren’s bank accounts.

Keep up the good work Joe…

Obama-Question-Afghanistan

Wonder what you would find if you frisked Obama’s plan on Afghanistan?

Answer: Once again, back to the drawing board.

I think most (smart) people realized that foreign policy would be a problem for Barack Obama. By smart people, I mean those who had their noggins present in reality and realized you cannot talk every country into peace no matter how well President Obama gives speeches. Although, that’s why he picked Joe Biden (that nobody knows of) because of his masterful insight on foreign policy… Haha, it’s almost laughable.

The latest on Obama and Afghanistan:

President Barack Obama is still working on his big decision: what to do about the Afghanistan war? On Wednesday, he held another Situation Room strategy session with his national security team. The day before, press secretary Robert Gibbs, said that Obama was pondering four options, without describing these alternatives. Media reports had suggested that each one involved deploying more troops. But hours following this latest AfPak gathering, AP reported that Obama had rejected all four options, and the news leaked that the US ambassador in Kabul, Karl Eikenberry, had sent two classified cables to Washington noting he was deeply concerned about dispatching additional troops to Afghanistan until the government of President Hamid Karzai demonstrates that it’s serious about addressing corruption and incompetence.

They have yet to find that groove. In past weeks, the White House has insisted that it will not pull out of Afghanistan, yet it has simultaneously noted that it can only succeed if it has a partner that “is free of corruption and transparent.” (What happens if there is no such partner? The White House won’t say.) The administraion has set up a daunting to-do list in Afghanistan—guaranteeing there is a working and honest government, an effective security force, and no safe haven for terrorists—while stating, as Gibbs put it, “our commitment can’t be forever.” (Those missions could take close-to-forever to accomplish.) And when Gibbs was asked if Obama has made good on the promise he stated in March to set “clear benchmarks” on anti-corruption efforts for the Afghan government, the press secretary could only reply that “conversations are being had.” But by defending the election process in Afghanistan, the White House seemed to be stepping from routine political spin toward public denial of reality.

The honest policy wonks in and outside the administration who focus on Afghanistan and Pakistan, even as they disagree with each other, usually say there’s no telling if one particular course of action will work. The experts have nothing but best guesses. Which makes Obama’s decision all the more difficult. But one thing’s for sure: Afghanistan is a political minefield for Obama. Many within his own party don’t want him to deploy more troops; Republicans are looking for opportunities to blast his handling of the war. And the public is torn. As Obama threads both the policy and the political needles, he and his aides will have to ponder how best to persuade the voters they are proceeding with eyes wide open about what’s occurring on the ground in this far-away place. Especially after the previous administration, Obama will only be able to win support for his policy—whatever it turns out to be—if the public perceives it is reality-based. Given how discouraging the reality is in Afghanistan, this will be one of the most daunting tasks of Obama’s presidency.

Mr. Obama, I thought you said Afghanistan is the war of necessity? You’ve had a plan (created by the general YOU picked) on the table for months and still no word.

Side-Note: Unbelievable… I guess in Obama’s eyes it is okay to be playing politics rather than address the important issue of our troops in harm’s way without the resources they need to succeed.

I sense another broken promise coming…

Who-Is-Biden

Pretty shocking...

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the streets of Hollywood, CA?

Answer: They are curious about this Joe Biden character.

Haha, I love these videos because they are just absolutely shocking. It’s all always great to see that the American youth is so incredibly misinformed… Wait a minute…

I can see why Obama and the Democrats were so concerned about the youth vote in the 2008 election. If you can convince the universities across the nation that Obama is ‘The One’, then they are bound to vote Democrat down the rest of the ballot… Ahh yes, the benefits of misinformed individuals. Hmm… is that the reason why people like Al Franken got elected? Of course, but with the help of ACORN too, haha.

My favorite quotes in this video:

Crowder: Who is the vice president of the United States?
Random Guy: Arnold Schwarzenegger?

Random Girl: I don’t like America.
Crowder: Where are you from?
Random Girl: I’m from America, but I’m moving to London.
Crowder: So your from America, but don’t like America?
Random Girl: No, not really.
Crowder: So who is the English prime minster?
Random Girl: I don’t know! Some real ugly guy.

Really… Is she serious? Personally I am kind of happy she’s moving away, but than again I feel awful for London because they will have to deal with her. She is the definition of an arrogant American that takes their liberty and freedom for granted.

Side-Note: Honestly people, you didn’t know the vice president of the United States? For crying out loud, Obama texted his picked to!

Stimulus-Not-Working

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the effectiveness of the $787 billion stimulus package?

Answer: 30,083 jobs ‘created or saved’ using $16 billion out of the $339 billion awarded.

Good job porkulus package! The Obama administration once again proves how ineffective they actually are. Last month they reported that the stimulus package has ‘created or saved’ a million jobs. The best part… They had no data supporting that claim, haha. How is that possible? Obama’s The One/The Messiah, he can say whatever he wants (true or false)! Duh! Unfortunately for the administration, new data has been released:

The first direct stimulus reports showed that stimulus contracts saved or created just 30,083 jobs, prompting more Republican criticism of the $787 billion package.

The data posted Thursday was the result of the government’s initial attempt at counting actual stimulus jobs. Obama administration officials stressed that data was partial — it represented just $16 billion out of the $339 billion awarded — but they said it exceeded their projections.

Hmm… Not looking good for Obama and his loyal team of liberals, but did they agree with this assessment? Haha, of course not! Besides the $16 billion, they went on to defend the other $329 billion which did not have any data:

“All signs — from private estimates to this fragmentary data — point to the conclusion that the Recovery Act did indeed create or save about 1 million jobs in its first seven months, a much needed lift in a very difficult period for our economy,” said Jared Bernstein, the chief economist for Vice President Joe Biden.

Did the other $329 billion of wasted tax payer money not work as well as the initial $16 billion? I highly doubt it – why else would they not release that information!? But no worries… That doesn’t stop them from praising how well it has worked.

What a joke:

At the rate shown by this report, this comes to almost $532,000 per job “saved or created”.  Extrapolating that over the entirety of the Porkulus spending, the bill would only “save or create” 1.48 million jobs, and that assumes that it actually did“save or create” those jobs in the first place.

Keep trying to defend this monstrosity of wasteful spending liberal geniuses.

Must I remind you:

  • Nearly 3.4 million jobs have been lost since the stimulus was passed in February.
  • President Obama, Vice President Biden, and their economists predicted that the stimulus would ‘create or save’ 3 to 4 million jobs.
  • The jobless rate is currently at 9.8 percent, the highest in 26 years, and Obama promised it wouldn’t go above 8 percent with the stimulus.

Side-Note: No, seriously… How is it possible to declare this a success!? Or even working for that matter.

BidenIran

Wonder what you would find if you frisked Joe Biden’s ‘expert’ foreign policy skills?

Answer: Iran ain’t no thang!

Joe Biden is back at it again! Saying really dumb things, of course. CNN reports:

Vice President Joe Biden earlier refused to confirm to CNN that the George W. Bush-era plan was being shelved.

But he did explain the logic of doing so, saying Iran — a key concern for the United States — was not a threat.

“I think we are fully capable and secure dealing with any present or future potential Iranian threat,” he told CNN’s Chris Lawrence in Baghdad, where he is on a brief trip.

“The whole purpose of this exercise we are undertaking is to diminish the prospect of the Iranians destabilizing that region in the world. I am less concerned — much less concerned — about the Iranian potential. They have no potential at this moment, they have no capacity to launch a missile at the United States of America,” he said.

Great… All this in an attempt to make nice with Russia. Think that will happen? (Cough*Doubt it*Cough) At least Biden assures us that Iran can’t strike America… yet. Good to know, but how about our allies? Here’s what Poland thinks about the U.S. not providing them with missile shields:

Former Polish President and Nobel Peace Prize winner, Lech Wałesa, has spoken out about media reports that the US has scrapped plans to install a missile shield in Poland and the Czech Republic.

“Americans have always cared only about their interests, and all other [countries] have been used for their purposes. This is another example,” Mr Wałęsa told TVN24. “[Poles] need to review our view of America, we must first of all take care of our business,” he added.

“I could tell from what I saw, what kind of policies President Obama cultivates,” the former president added. “I simply don’t like this policy, not because this shield was required [in Poland], but [because of] the way we were treated,” he concluded.

Yay! Good to know that Poland (our ally) feels they were thrown under the bus – which they were. But what was this administration thinking?

The Obama administration said its decision had nothing to do with Russia and everything to do with Iran. The president and Defense Secretary Robert Gates said the move was made in large part because the latest intelligence out of Iran shows a greater threat coming from short- and medium-range missiles, and the old plans were developed with long-range, intercontinental ballistic missiles in mind.

Well that makes sense… right? But what about this:

But officials in the U.S. and other countries have been warning that Iran is making headway in developing long-range missiles and a nuclear weapon, leading Obama’s critics to accuse him of simply caving to Russia, which had been irritated by Bush’s proposal to build the defense shield in Poland and the Czech Republic.

All I got to say to that is: Yikes! I’ll let Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and others beak it down:

“It will empower the Russians and it will scare the crap out of the Poles, Czechs, Ukranians and Georgians. It is a huge mistake,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said on FOX News Radio.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., warned that the decision to scale back in Eastern Europe comes at a time when those nations are “increasingly wary of renewed Russian adventurism.”

“Given the strong and enduring relationships we have forged with the region’s nations since the end of the Cold War, we should not, I believe, take steps backward in strengthening these ties,” McCain said

Obama’s ‘Thrown Under the Bus’ Ally Checklist: Honduras, Colombia, Poland, Czech Republic. Look out Israel, South Korea, and Taiwan… Your probably next.
