As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Nine Apologies Biden Owes Americans

In recent days, Vice President Biden has issued apologies to the no doubt unimpeachably honorable and suitably aggrieved leaders of Turkey and the United Arab Emirates for insulting them by saying they had supported Islamists.

While Biden expressing serial regrets, I wonder, what if the thought occurred to him to apologize to the American people? Not for silly gaffes or little blunders, but for professional-league, first-class outrages that are unacceptable coming from a vice president, even this one.

He might say . . .

1. I am sorry for telling an audience of African Americans during the campaign that Mitt Romney was “going to put you all back in chains.”

2. I am sorry for mocking Republican vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan during the debate with constant, staged, laughter. Not only was the giggling insulting, nasty and inappropriate, it was undignified for a vice president and even scarily odd.

3. I am sorry for opposing the special forces raid that took out Osama Bin Laden. Thank God the president didn’t take my advice.

4. I am sorry for revealing that the Navy SEALs killed Bin Laden.

5. I am sorry for making an adjusted gross income of $385,072 in 2012 and giving only 1.9 percent of it to charity, a percentage similar to the minuscule amounts I had given in the past.

6. I am sorry for telling Americans to walk out on their balconies and fire a double barrel shotgun into the air to scare off a potential intruder. It’s a felony in many states and someone was actually arrested for taking my advice.

7. I am sorry for comparing Republicans during the 2012 campaign to the Know Nothing Party, a xenophobic and sometimes violently anti-Catholic and anti-immigrant movement that existed during the 1850s.

8. I am sorry for excusing the Chinese for their barbaric “one child policy,” which is not only an oppressive, totalitarian measure but one that has resulted in the death of little girls.

9. I am sorry for saying in 2010 that President Obama’s Iraq policy could go down as one of Obama’s “great achievements.” It wasn’t his achievement, it was Bush’s, and he was actually in the process of screwing it up.

  1. Other nominations:

    10) “I think I have a much higher IQ than you do, I suspect.”

    11) “I went to law school on a full academic scholarship, the only one in my class to have a full academic scholarship.”

    12) “I graduated with three degrees from undergraduate school and 165 credits — only needed 123 credits”

    13) “my helicopter was “forced down” on “the superhighway of
    terror” by Afghan extremists.”

  2. 10. “You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent…. I’m not joking.” –Joe Biden, in a private remark to an Indian-American man caught on C-SPAN, June, 2006

    • …….so, he goes down in history as the worst VP ever. What would you expect, having been chosen by the worst president ever? He was, after all, Obama’s choice. It will be fun when Shillary takes him on.

        • It’s why Nov 4 is a very important election this year. If the GOP doesn’t plan to blow their great odds of taking back the Senate and keeping the House !

          We have to get Republican voters to turn out like they did in 2010 to send Obama a message, slow him down, get rid of Harry Reid and stop Hillary. Our country depends on it :)

  3. Excellent idea,- have a politician apologize for lying, telling untruths, or just trying to incite racial or class outrage. huh.
    There isn’t enough time or tv air space for our political class to start coming clean or to just accept blame for things that went wrong.

    It would be more efficient and more honorable if the MSM would issue statements allowing that they let all these lies and outrages pass without comment or investigation. Let NBC, CBS, ABC, the major news prints, et al, finally admit that they failed in their journalistic ethics to print the unbiased truth, and let the chips fall where they may.
    ol’ Joe can take his mea culpas to the confessional and hope a few Hail Marys and Our Fathers will erase his sins.

  4. Joe only apologizes if Kerry or Obama make him. It is unlikely either one of them would think the statements in your list require an apology.

  5. When will Joe Biden APOLOGIZE for ‘Barack Hussein Obama’ being “elected” “US president” when NO ONE (“media”) ever did a REAL BACKGROUND CHECK into ‘Barack Hussein Obama’…???

    -If Im lucky to get a job to clean toilets and take out the trash at a US Government building in Washington DC…I, a US CITIZEN & US Veteran, have to go thru a “US Government Background Check-Security Clearance”…
    YET? ‘Barack Hussein Obama’ is allowed to be a “US Senator” and “US president” with no background check…???!!!

    • I may be completely off base with this, but I think I recall reading that SanFranNan supposedly “vetted” Obama and said everything was OK for him to run for POTUS…sounds like something she would do. Perhaps someone who knows how to find out info would be able to see if this is true or not.

      • why would that matter? it’s not the job of partisan politicians to vet their own candidates, it’s their job to get them elected.

        the people who didn’t vet Obama, the people to blame, are the MSM and the incurious American public, which just didn’t care that much. twice.

    • I remember years ago Dick Morris was on Fox and talked about how Obama could not possibly pass a background check simply because of his association with Bill Ayers. It astounds me that someone ineligible to clean toilets in a government facility could be elected president.

    • Yes. I know we go on & on about his non vetting.
      How? Too many handlers behind the scene locking everything up. No one knows him from college? Really? Mr in your face great speaker & no one remembers him??
      It disgusts & puzzles me.

  6. Good ole “Insurance” Joe. So long as he continues honing his gaffability skills, nobody in their right mind would think of throwing his boss under the bus, let alone impeach him. Only 836 more days to go!

    • I don’t see him as any kind of “insurance” at all. He’s well established as a buffoon and no one takes him seriously, ever. He’s a toothless bloviator.

  7. Smokin’ Joe might explain the definition of hypocrisy:

    His two current events in CA are to

    1) Work to get more women in the Senate, and

    2) Raise money to keep a woman out of the Senate in Iowa.

    Hey, Joe: Waging a selective war on women?
