Really, it’s time to perform some neurological testing on the vice president. I even know someone who can do it.
Forget his presidential campaign. I’m concerned about what will happen if he is forced to assume the presidency during the next two and a half years.
I mean, I’m beginning to think the prospect of impeaching President Obama is a national security threat.
Speaking at the annual convention of Generation Progress, the youth branch of the left-wing Center for American Progress think-tank, Biden announced that Obama’s promised change didn’t happen – an assertion which, given the shambles the country is in, is actually, debatable – and left unsaid but clearly implied that he was the one who could fix the problem.
Look folks, this is within our power to change. Everybody says because we tried in ’08 and it didn’t happen, it’s not possible. Wrong. We’ve gone through these periods before. We’ve gone through these periods.
Folks, this is totally within our power . . . Change — change for the better — is absolutely possible, and I believe it’s close to inevitable if you’re the drivers of it.
Serious political analysts are wondering if this is an attempt by Biden to distance himself from the White House in order to help his potential run for the presidency. BUT THE VICE PRESIDENT CANNOT DISTANCE HIMSELF FROM THE WHITE HOUSE BECAUSE HE’S IN THE WHITE HOUSE.
I think, more likely, it’s a cry for help.
Biden then went on to imitate a gay waiter. According to US News & World Report:
Biden then set a scene. It’s 15 years earlier and a group of businesswomen and men are at a restaurant for lunch. “And a waiter with a distinct lisp came up and asked for their order and someone said, ‘Well let me tell you what I’d like,'” Biden said, feminizing his voice and pretending to be a restaurant patron picking on the waiter.
“Everyone around that table, although they thought it was awful, wouldn’t say anything.” Because, as Biden put it, this was “appropriate behavior” – the consensus would have been that it’s OK to make fun of someone who is gay.
“Imagine what would happen today in any major city in America if some horse’s tail said that at a luncheon?” Biden mused. “Everyone else at that table would turn around and say, ‘What in the hell are you talking about man?'”
This touching vignette was part of Biden’s attempt to pat himself on the back for getting out ahead of Obama on gay marriage by announcing he was for it while Obama was still “evolving” on the issue.
“I’d like to think I did my part for marriage equality,” Biden said Wednesday. Yes, he proved through his union with Jill that people who occasionally plunge into imbecility can have successful marriages too.
