Biden: Passing Obama’s jobs bill means less rape

posted at 4:45 pm on October 12, 2011 by Allahpundit

Via the Standard, turns out the GOP is pro-rape, I guess. Well, the GOP plus Ben Nelson and Jon Tester.

Since we’re now framing the debate in these terms, shouldn’t O redraft his bill to apportion a lot more money for first responders? Hiring many, many more cops might not be as economically stimulative as hiring more construction workers, but hey — less rape.

Low levels of public safety personnel, rising crime and the nationwide recession is like a “mixture for cancer” in the city of Flint, Vice President Joe Biden said in his speech today from the downtown Flint fire station.

The vice president spoke about the hundreds of layoffs of police officers and firefighters in the city as he called for Congress to pass the American Jobs Act.

A $5 billion provision in the bill provides grant money to rehire and retain first responders he said…

Biden spoke about the correlation between police and firefighter layoffs in Flint and the rise in violent crime and arson. He also spoke about how local governments’ tax bases are disappearing.

A crazy question inspired by Rob Port’s post on this today: If more cops are desperately needed in Flint, why is the city seemingly hell bent on spending millions of stimulus dollars on “green” buses instead? If the money’s been earmarked by the feds for that purpose, no problem. Simply appeal to Obama and Michigan’s congressional delegation to have it reappropriated for police. And when you do, be sure to ask him/them why they care more about electric vehicles than, say, rape.

Exit question via Alana Goodman: Since preventing horrible crimes is everyone’s top priority, how come the Flint police union preferred to see 20 cops laid off last year rather than take a pay cut to keep them on the beat?

If we don’t bomb Iran right now, we’re soft on terror.

The Flint police union hates women and wants to see them raped.

logical connections.

The whole country is raped, by Obama/Biden.

Yet, Obama is the “4th quarter” Player in Chief.

Don’t laugh, Biden might fight Hillary for the first spot, in 2012.

Obama cut $19M for a program for those rescued from sex slavery.

I guess the Democrats are pro-sex slavery.


(and there’s a tangible connection to the charge)

Support Obama’s jobs bill or you’ll see more rape, murder, arson, and rape.

because its a lot harder to climb aboard a speeding cop car that’s hurtling past you than one of them nice “green” buses that kneels down for you when your bunions are a hurtin’.

The New Civility.

Dems block jobs bill = GOP likes rape.

This is a result of that spicy pizza I ate for supper, and when I wake up W will still be the president.

All just a crazy, whacky nightmare. I’m sorry you guys are in it.

They’re trying to convince them that we need to take down the Mexican drug cartels since they could work with Iran.

Of course, the fact that the Sinaloa Cartel was armed by the ATF will be tastefully glossed over.

Why else did FDR go on television in 1929 and tell Chuck to stand up? To prevent rapes.

Here’s an idea. Put the brakes on regulations, pull back on the regulations in place, free up the public sector so it can do it’s thing, and create jobs, where more workers mean more taxes coming in, and we won’t need idiotic bills, and rhetoric? Huh? How about that? Huh?

capejasmine on October 12, 2011 at 4:59 PM

The Regime got their $800 billion to Porkulus to spend on “cops, firefighters, teacher and infrastructure”, but they blew it on corrupt scams like Solyndra instead.

Looks like Obama lied and people died – again.

Rape and murder only increase in cities that are majority Democrat.
Eliminate the police in Provo, Utah and the only thing that happens is the number of speeding tickets goes down.

He also spoke about how local governments’ tax bases are disappearing.

Would those be taxpaying people or taxpaying businesses? Nevermind. It doesn’t matter. Who knew that Liberally run cesspools of governance and never-ending taxes would make either “disappear”?

Hey, Joe. Look up “capital flight”. That applies to more than just money as it turns out.

Or just take another nap until your job is outsourced to someone competent.

AnonymousDrivel on October 12, 2011 at 5:34 PM

What Biden did here…

… was to subconsciously install into the minds of the protesters, soon to be rioters, is that the rape and murder of the “rich” is the next step up after they burn them out of their houses.

Obowma’s “Fourth Quarter“…

… Bomb Iran to set the rest of the world on fire and get ‘Fast and Furious’ buried, unleash the class warfare riots paid for with Soro’s money, then declare martial law for the security of the nation.

Election… what election?

The worst part about this…?

… It is the fact that the very thought of it has a ring of truth to it.

Biden was just a bit confused. He was thinking about Obama’s cousin, Ordinga. Obama campaigned for him, as in at his side with the bull horn, in Kenya when he was running for the presidentcy. Obama told him that if he lost, no matter how bad, cry voter fraud and make trouble until they say he won.

Ordinga lost and as instructed cried voter fraud. Then to force them to say he won Ordinga sent his thugs out to rape and kill. More than 800 died and 20,000 displaced before the new government created and gave Ordinga the position of prime minister.

As an interesting side note, Ordinga is the one that sealed Obama’s record in Kenya. What records did he have there to seal?

Biden went further:

“Passing this bill will cure sleep apnea. It will stop global climate change in its tracks. It will resurrect Michael Jackson. It will give little girls ponies for Christmas. It will….”

At that point, VP Biden was tackled by his aides and the microphone was pried from his grip.
