Biden’s Latest: Never Been a Day I’ve been Proud to be VP

by Keith Koffler on November 2, 2012, 5:19 pm

Shouldn’t you at least be required as vice president to know what state you’re in and whether or not you’re happy with your job?

Somehow when Bush and Quayle did things like this it was a scandal, but when Biden does it it’s just cute.

Please don’t let this man near the nuclear football.

H/T to Hot Air, where I saw this.

Freudian slip?

Sadie November 2, 2012 at 6:16 pm

Full-length slip at that.

What amazes me is how anyone can hear and record his voice – his head is so far up his kazoobama, it should sound muffled as well as unintelligible.

DeniseVB November 2, 2012 at 7:42 pm

May be a slip, but still a heartbeat away. Joe’s always liked being a Senator more, not a lot of work required. His gaffes certainly prove that :D

Sadie November 3, 2012 at 2:19 am

Joe on a Miami radio station in the last 24 hours.

“You need to take a vacation!” the host told the vice president of the United States.
“Well, I’m going to take a vacation about about three days after this election is over,” Biden revealed. “That’s what they told me.”

cincycinco November 3, 2012 at 8:48 am

C’mon, veep is not that stressful! The job is really going to state funerals for minor dignitaries, attenting low wattage fanboi-type events that don’t interest the Prezzy, snarking on the opposition, and waiting – maybe hoping for – your boss to die so you can actually do something consequential.

In the never-to-be forgotten, best descripion of the Vice Presidency, FDR’s first VP, John Gardner, said it best; “This job ain’t worth a bucket of warm piss”.

blondie November 2, 2012 at 5:28 pm

The bar is pretty low when it comes to Joe. Is there serious talk around DC that he might have early stage dementia? He reminds me of my father when he started(seriously).

nellyq November 2, 2012 at 5:50 pm

That’s what I think also and it is pityful to watch.

Just2old November 2, 2012 at 7:41 pm

Dementia, my diagnosis as well and I’m no Doctor….lol

Sadie November 2, 2012 at 8:55 pm

Very early, I believe it started in the 4th grade.

Otis Driftwood November 4, 2012 at 1:05 am

I’m no doctor, but I did sleep at a Holiday Inn Express last night ;-)

Mr. T. November 2, 2012 at 6:01 pm

One heartbeat away!

Sadie November 2, 2012 at 6:41 pm

Here’s the list of the other heartbeats – it’s enough to take mine away.
Joe Biden (D)
2 Speaker of the House John Boehner (R)
3 President pro tempore of the Senate Daniel Inouye (D)
4 Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton (D)
5 Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner (I)[3]
6 Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta (D)
7 Attorney General Eric Holder (D)
8 Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar (D)
9 Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack (D)
– Acting Secretary of Commerce Rebecca Blank (D)[4]
10 Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis (D)
11 Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius (D)
12 Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Shaun Donovan (D)
13 Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood (R)
14 Secretary of Energy Steven Chu (D)
15 Secretary of Education Arne Duncan (D)
16 Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki*
17 Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano (D)

Now, that’s a list that could get me to walk, crawl or hobble in a snowstorm with wild bears, wolves and boars along the way to vote.

Mr. T. November 2, 2012 at 6:58 pm

Boehner’s kind of a giant firewall there, isn’t he?

I’m just glad Pelosi’s no longer in that slot.

cincycinco November 3, 2012 at 9:15 am

“I’m just glad Pelosi’s no longer in that slot.” – Mr. T.

I would qualify this with “for now”.

Just remember, evil never dies. The Devil is very patient, and all that is required for Evil to triumph is for Good to do nothing. The nightmare scenario I saw spelled out on another thread is;

Obama ’12 – ’16
Clinton ’16 – ’20 (brokered for only 4 years, plus she’s old)
Pelosi ’20 – Armageddon

I’ll let that settle for a minute.

Now, please, PLEASE, vote for the flawed RINO Romney! I don’t like the lesser of two evils thing either, but we won’t live in a perfect world this side of Heaven. United we can get this done, divided we will be ruled by fear and fiat, as Obama’s sole hope rest only in keeping us divided against ourselves.

In the words of JRR Tolkien,

“In nothing is the power of the Dark Lord more clearly shown than in the estrangement that divides all those who still oppose him.”
- The Two Towers

“We are all friends here. Or should be; for the laughter of Mordor will be our only reward, if we quarrel.” – The Return of the King

Please, vote for the RINO, it’s important. No one else has any real shot. We’ll hold his feet to the fire later, but at least we have a chance with him. We have NO chance with Obama.

Make sure you vote, too. Some are now trying to make it sound like Romney’s for sure. Don’t be decived into staying home! There is a real hope he MAY win, but it is ONLY hope until YOU vote!

I leave you with one more Tolken quote to reflect on as regards tbe election;

“I do not foretell, for all foretelling is now vain: on the one hand lies darkness, and on the other only hope.” – The Two Towers

ONLY hope. YOU must make it happen. Should it be concluded with victory, it is just the beginning. We must then force those we elevate to ensure such executive fiat as we have seen in recent days cannot happen again, no matter who is President. That is OUR responsibility to ourselves, our children, our nation – our future.

It’s in YOUR hands.

Girly1 November 2, 2012 at 7:03 pm

Great visuals, Sadie! You bring back wonderful childhood memories of Jack London and his wonderful novels…White Fang, Call of the Wild. And thanks for reminding all of us about that WH Hall of Shame! That reminds me, has anyone seen or heard from Jay Carney of late???

Sadie November 2, 2012 at 7:19 pm

Girly, the list should be posted w/photos at every post office across the country with: WANTED FOR THEFT & MALFEASANCE

Here’s an interesting couple of lists as well I spotted @ iownthe world.com One of the comments asked about the original list for Romney, which was later posted (I cut and pasted the link below Romney- it’s a long one. The original link got me thinking about who/what endorsed the Preversedent and I couldn’t stop laughing when I read the list at wiki since they broke it down among, fashion designers, chefs, comediens and the usual riff-raff.

Military Endorsements

When you are active duty you HAVE to endorse the Commander-In-Chief
Look what happens when you’re retired.
Endorsements:
OBAMA
General Colin Powell
General Wesley Clark
Admiral John Nathan, co-chair of Obama campaign
Major General Paul Eaton
Rear Admiral Don Gutter

Astounding, Sadie! This should be a banner headline everywhere….it’s the greatest indictment against Obama…ever!

Here’s another one that just came out today:
Former POW’s who support Romney:

Sadie November 2, 2012 at 7:47 pm

Girly, the POW list reminded me, where are they holding Gen. Carter Ham?

Girly1 November 2, 2012 at 8:04 pm

Two nights ago FOX’s Katherine Herridge reported that she spoke to Gen. Ham. He told her that he never received a written order from the CIC to send troops to Benghazi. We haven’t heard the end of this….someone is lying and it’s not General Ham!

Sadie November 2, 2012 at 7:37 pm

Girly, here’s a press gag(gle) held yesterday enroute with Jen Psaki.

RickW November 2, 2012 at 9:27 pm

Sadie, wasn’t an Executive Order issued back in 2009 making Moochelle # 1B, ahead of the Speaker?

Sadie November 2, 2012 at 9:33 pm

RickW – I knew wiki wasn’t a reliable source. Good thing we have you around to straighten things out. : – )

Rick was 1 off.. ValJ is 1B, FLOTUS is 1C.

JustSaying12 November 2, 2012 at 6:18 pm

Man Obama/Biden are stumbling down the stretch. I watched Obama’s speech at work earlier today: Hard to imagine that this is the same guy from 4 years ago. Peggy Noonan in the WSJ said today what I been saying for awhile now (She just said a million times better then I ever can): Obama’s fall from historical figure to needing 15th and 1/2 rounds (and he still might lose) e to a weak candidate in Romney will be studied by historians over the next several decades. And I know many of you are huge Romney supporters and I like him personally but I don’t think he is a strong candidate. He has run I will admit a great October/November campaign after having a pretty weak campaign for much of the general (while Obama has run a piss poor campaign, even some of my blue kool aid drinking friends admit that to be the case because it’s the truth) . Going into election day

JustSaying12 November 2, 2012 at 6:28 pm

Going into election day, I look at like the Ryder Cup was going into Sunday. Obama has a strong (but not huge) lead going into election day but Romney has momentum and his big guns going in (Remember Obama’s campaign used early voters to get out their strongest supporters, Romney campaign has used to get their most unreliable voters to the poll). The election comes down to Scott Rausmeen said : Can Romney get enough voters to the polls on election day to beat Obama’s lead? Its a tall order but Romney could though it help.of Obama choke a bit like the US team did.

JustSaying12 November 2, 2012 at 6:45 pm

Bloomberg just cancelled the marathon. I want to shake the hand of whoever beat some sense to that SOB. I hope the fallout from the bungling of this is severe.

Sadie November 2, 2012 at 7:27 pm

Bloomberg probably realized that he’d have a couple of hundred Staten Island homeless residents in the media-heated tents looking for him. I read somewhere today that some hotels were refusing to rent rooms to the runners and told them that the homeless needed a place to stay first. Common street sense – something that eluded the Oscar Mayor Weenie.

Darrel November 2, 2012 at 9:54 pm

Obama does NOT have a lead. That is FALSE.

blondie November 2, 2012 at 6:53 pm
srdem65 November 2, 2012 at 6:56 pm

I can’t wait for this election to be over. It seems like forever.

Sadie November 2, 2012 at 7:07 pm

Is this a bad time to remind you that we set our clocks back an hour this weekend. ; )

srdem65 November 2, 2012 at 7:44 pm

Nah, all that happens here is that my fav TV shows come on an hour earlier. We don’t change our clocks to “save daylight”.
We have more “daylight” than anyone needs in AZ.

Star November 3, 2012 at 11:50 am

Networks stay the same and cable shows are…earlier? I thought later…I am not worthy! What time will Cavuto be–2:00? It’s 1:00 now. I am losing IQ pts!

Girly1 November 2, 2012 at 7:22 pm

Sounds like the title of a Harlequin novel! Better yet, it could be the title of Obama’s post-presidency Memoirs with a racy cover photo…
Trashy, trashy, trashy!

Sadie November 2, 2012 at 7:43 pm

Cue balls last week from Biden and Alexrod is on loins this week and in between seniors cursing, threatening to ….self editing here. There’s definiely a body parts theme, which …lest we forget with Anthony Weiner’s own body parts.

Martha Trowbridge November 2, 2012 at 7:07 pm

The truly scary part is that the crowd DOESN’T LISTEN, they just cheer.

Sadie November 2, 2012 at 8:02 pm

And they vote.

Dbb November 2, 2012 at 7:10 pm

Well Keith, at least Biden can plead punch drunk fatigue at the end of a gruelling presidential campaign. What will be your excuse come Wednesday for your “Romney May Now Be Headed Toward a Big Win” post. Christ, sounds like Carole King, I feel the earth move under my feet, I feel the sky tumbling down on Obama, oh yeah!

Just2old November 2, 2012 at 7:32 pm

Your snark is lost on us. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised:

“Romney is Headed Toward a Big Win”

Surprise!

AZ Granny November 2, 2012 at 7:39 pm

Obama drew very small crowds today. His largest crowd was 4,000 in Springfield, Ohio. Fox reported 20,000-30,000 turned out to see Romney in Ohio. Remember how Obama had crowds near 100,000 people during the 2008 campaign. It shows just how far the mighty Won has fallen.

Girly1 November 2, 2012 at 8:09 pm

Everyone is sick of listening to this street hustler. He doesn’t have an ounce of Statesmanship or dignity. More like a rabid dog!

JustSaying12 November 2, 2012 at 8:27 pm

Obama running on fumes but I’m worried he built a big enough leaf to hold on.

FLDemFem November 3, 2012 at 12:58 pm

In 2008, Obama rarely gave a speech without a big name band as the opening act. So the crowds were there to see the band, no telling how many stayed for all of Obama’s speech. They did the counts while the bands were playing, not while he was talking. So the numbers aren’t as good as they look for Obama, he was using others to get in the numbers and then tacking on his campaign crap at the end of the concert.

Girly1 November 3, 2012 at 5:08 pm

Especially at the infamous ‘Berlin Speech’! I remember reading at the time that 99% of the young German kids had no clue as to who Obama was – they were there to see the rock concert. What a deceiful, conniving snake!

One more story. I used to watch CSPAN on Saturday mornings when he was stumping around in corn fiiedls in the very early days. The crowds were always sparse even with the third rate entertainment he provided. Once he started sputtering and stuttering (sans teleprompter), the farmers would simply get up and leave. It was fascinating to think that Obama thought he had a ghost of a chance to be POTUS. He was simply the worst ‘speaker’ I had ever heard.

JustSaying12 November 2, 2012 at 7:37 pm

He always made gaffes like this. Then again you apologize for Obama no matter happens. Mr. Hope & Change needs 15 and 1/2 rounds to beat Mitt Romney. I have a friend who works for Obama’s reelection and he is embarrassed by it. Then again he is embarrassed by a lot of things Obama has done, that why he is not going to take a job in a possible Obama 2nd term.
