Will Biden’s Gaffes Cost Him?

August 24, 2012 by  

Will Biden get dumped? Barack Obama’s Vice President has a bad case of foot-in-mouth disease. First, Joe Biden told an audience in Virginia that with their help, “We can win North Carolina again.” Then he warned another audience that if Mitt Romney wins: “They’re gonna put y’all back in chains.” Biden’s gaffes have some Democrats urging Obama to drop him from the ticket. Who’s their favorite choice to replace him? Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

A tough day on the campaign trail. During a Barack Obama campaign event in Davenport, Iowa, the caterer showed up wearing a T-shirt that proclaimed, “Government Didn’t Build My Business, I Did.” Meanwhile, in Virginia, a bakery owner told Joe Biden’s advance team “no!” when they asked to stage an event at his shop. When word spread about the “cupcake mutiny,” locals flocked to the store and snapped up everything on the shelves. Wonder how many more stories like this there will be between now and November? Whatever the number, you can be sure the vast majority will be ignored by mainstream media.

Newsweek’s shocking cover story. Now here’s something I never thought I’d see: The headline on this week’s cover story in Newsweek is an eye-opening “Hit the Road, Barack. Why We Need a New President.” It was written by Harvard professor Niall Ferguson, who is catching all sorts of flak for what he said. It’s hard to quarrel with Ferguson’s conclusion, though, that Obama has broken a ton of promises. Or that “we are becoming the 50-50 nation — half of us paying the taxes, the other half receiving the benefits.”

No wonder California is going broke. Do you know anyone who’d like to pull down almost $100,000 a year, along with great healthcare benefits and a generous pension? Tell them to get themselves out to Hermosa Beach, Calif., and apply for a job as a meter maid. Oops, wrong title. If you’re lucky enough to be hired there to collect coins from parking meters, you will actually be called a “community service staffer.”

      Those chains are fiuguratively around the knees of women until they are told to get pregnant and stay pregnant. Then they are popped off for a moment to let the kid out that won’t have any medical benefits.

      Even though the chains aren’t real the effects of the misguided right wing agena is.

        Yep Rob too bad your mom didn’t have an abortion!!!

        Thank You Comrade Robert, for yet another( of course we are use to it now), idiotic, unsubstantiated Alinsky rant !

      • Hadenoughalread (@waitingforshoet)

        You’re very lucky your mother allowed you to be born and fed you and clothed you and educated you. You people cost a lot of money! What a waste!

  • Ted Crawford

    Bidens position is secure! Obama’s no fool, he’s well aware that one of the primary reasons that there has been no real attempt to Impeach him is the fact that Biden is in the second seat! Of course he could replace him with another idiot, say Pelosi for example! Better yet, Hank Johnson. It would be nearly impossible to find someone less clueless than that!

      Pelosi would be a logical choice for VP. Obama believes her to be the voice of the average white woman in America.

      Would you put yourself 1 bullet between hillary and the presidency???

    My “suggestion” that Biden have a “regularly” tummy belly ache and he will not be available for the next 4- year Production.
    Next Challenge: Where, in the Democrat/Marxist/Socialist entourage can they find another ineffective Clown to spend in the next 4 years impersonating a serious highly trained and credentialed Communist,like the Boss?
    Any ideas?

    I can’t understand how the dupers in command can think that any other administration that follows will put people in chains any more than what the last three have done. Obama has been determined to end social security as we know it already, no new president will be able to be accused of doing that. If anyone was in tune with what’s going on in the White House currently, it won’t take long to see that chains are already on the way. I hope a different president does get in so the present agenda will be stopped and corrected. Listen to what Newt Gingrich said, and pay attention.

      MEEEEEE 222222222222222!!! But we gotta pick soon, just not for the dictator-in-chief! Yikes, I’ve seen His face one to many times on the TV. He’ll soon be the falling star! haha! Boo-hiss!
      Maybe, hopefully, Mitt can hear “We, the People” if & when he gets in office. What other choice do we have?
      Our country needs many prayers & votes to turn things around. Then we can give the “change” to B. O.

      • Brad n TX

        Yep we need to have some changes made for the imposter like 30 to life for all the crimes he has made against the American people by distorting the constitution. Maybe a firing squad would fit the crime better

    That would be like trading one JACKASS for ANOTHER!!!!
