Joe Biden: Economist and Sage

Times may be tough, but we sure got a vice president who can make us laugh. Joe Biden's latest bit of wisdom is that we have to spend more money to end the deficit. Did he really say that? CNS reports as follows.

“And folks look, AARP knows and the people with me here today know, the president knows, and I know, that the status quo is simply not acceptable,” Biden said at the event on Thursday in Alexandria, Va. “It’s totally unacceptable. And it’s completely unsustainable. Even if we wanted to keep it the way we have it now. It can’t do it financially.” “We’re going to go bankrupt as a nation,” Biden said. “Now, people when I say that look at me and say, ‘What are you talking about, Joe? You’re telling me we have to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt?’” Biden said. “The answer is yes, that's what I’m telling you.”

Maybe Biden can show me how to do that, how to spend money and save it too.

We now have a new word in the English language. "Bidenism." What is a Bidenism? telling you would be like describing the colour orange. There is just no one like good old Joe. We haven't had so much fun since Dan Quayle was Vice President. They made a joke about Dan Quayle speaking to an African American audience. In the joke he told the audience that he was a great admirer of Malcolm the Tenth.

Biden is better than Quayle. He makes up his own material. Consider the following from the All Great Quotes site.

Look, John's last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S.

Biden at an election rally. Oh well. Even if he can't count, at least he can spell.

"If you want to know where Al Qaeda lives, you want to know where Bin Laden is, come back to Afghanistan with me. Come back to the area where my helicopter was forced down, with a three-star general and three senators at 10,500 feet in the middle of those mountains. I can tell you where they are."

Speaking to a gathering of National Guardsmen, September 2008.

Maybe he can collect the 10 million dollar reward for catching Bin Laden and retire.

When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the princes of greed. He said, "look, here's what happened."

Television was not in existence in 1929 and Herbert Hoover was President, not FDR. OK Joe, for $64.00, where is Wall Street?

A man I’m proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next President of the United States — Barack America!

This was at his first rally with Obama. At least he didn't say Barack Kenya.

"Mark my words. It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We're about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don't remember anything else I said. Watch, we're gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy."

Joe Biden October 2008. Since then, all the bad guys have been lining up to kick sand in Obama's face.

In Delaware, the largest growth of population is Indian Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7/11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.

Joe Biden 2006. If George W. said that, they'd be demanding his resignation. The following quote about Barack Obama is frosting on the cake.

I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.
But my favourites are the videos of Joe Biden drunk. I have included one with this posting. Whatever may be awaiting us as a nation, Joe Biden will be there, ready to entertain us.
