Jason Mattera to Joe Biden: So you’re really going to sell this jobs bill by talking about rape, huh?

posted at 7:27 pm on October 19, 2011 by Allahpundit

All of our readers know who Mattera is, I take it, including/especially the HA old-schoolers. Here’s his tete-a-tete with Biden today; the look on Greasy Joe’s face as he walks away made me laugh out loud, just because it’s so wonderfully clear that he really does think this is super-smart salesmanship. Since he’s taking this “you’re either with us or you’re with the rapists” logic seriously, I have to ask again: How did he and The One decide on the optimal amount of money for first responders in the new jobs bill, or as I’m now calling it, The Federal Rape Prevention Act of 2011? According to Tapper, they want $5 billion for cops (and firefighters) and … $30 billion for teachers. Important jobs all, but if we’re forced to choose between smaller class sizes in public schools and less rape, I’m thinking most of us want more money for the latter than for the former. How come Obama and Biden don’t agree? Are they really just pitiful stooges for the teachers’ unions? Or are they just soft on rape?

The very first question at the next Solyndra hearing should be, “How many rapes could Democrats have prevented by giving that $535 million to cops instead?”

It’s the accusatory tone in the “who are you with” that’s got everyone riled up, right?

Do liberal journalists ever get asked who they’re with?

Rape the solar panels; they deserve it because of the way they dress.

hillbillyjim on October 19, 2011 at 10:15 PM

How many rapes and murders will be prevented if the money is approved?

If not approving the money means rapes will go up, then tell me Slow Joe, what is the count that they will go up? If we give you the bucks, how much will the rape and murder count go down in the top 50 metro areas? Let’s set the time fram in 3 month increments for the next nine months. Back up your BS, Slow Joe!

Metric plugs, metrics.

There should be a Program Management Office setup for every one of these money pits with plans, budgets and metrics. This should be written in the bill and the House should be the branch who manages the progress, not the Executive Branch.

Something that is so annoying in regards to the jobs bill is how disengenuious the rhetoric is.

Jobs bill: Infrastructure, roads, bridges, cops, teachers etc. This is nothing more than a bill that subsidizes democrat supporting unions.

A real job bill would be one that got rid of the mandate of all government projects being done by unions. Sure, I like getting prevaling wage when it comes, but, were non-union companies able to compete on a level playing field, there would be no more union companies. Period, dot.

I have worked for only non-union shops, have received a fair wage for my work with usually good benefits. This, without the burden of paying union dues and working with slugs that are protected by the unions due to their seniority.

Burqas for solar panels NOW! It’s the multi-culti thing to do, after all.

And don’t forget the poor under-appreciated goats of the world. I’m thinking those Afghani goats need burqas and maybe Louisville Sluggers as well.

STOP THE MADNESS.

Didn’t Joe say something about crime being “up in Flint. Look it up.” or did I not hear that correctly. Flint, Michigan?! He’s going out on THIS limb with stats from one city in Michigan?

DrStock on October 19, 2011 at 10:51 PM

“We have to go…!

Who are you with?!” – Handlers (with scorn on their faces)

It’s almost like they don’t like to be called out for what they say and the little impertinent upstart needs to be dealt with…

… I can’t wait for the day that Greasy Joe and his boss are dragged kicking and screaming from the White House.

Seven Percent Solution on October 19, 2011 at 10:51 PM

Forget “jobs created or saved” as the metric for success, now it’s “rapes and murders prevented”!

“Who are you with?” is a variation of “Do you know who I am?” Put them both together and you get “Who do you know?” to which the proper response is: “I yam what I yam and that’s all that I yam.”

Biden is in no way deserving of anyone’s sympathy, but here he is, very generously speaking, a marginal personality at best, swept into office with the aid of union thuggery and all that that implies, drifts along for decades, contracts severe Senatoritis along the way, second only to Arlen Specter. Runs for prez in a whole other era and doesn’t make the JV. Literary light-fingers Joe. Then arranges to get recruited onto the Obama ticket (“Either my name or your brains will be on that ticket, Barry.”) He sees the administration collapsing around his ears and realizes he will never be president. Besides that, his middle name is Robinette. That’s gotta wear on ya during the course of a lifetime. Lashing out is the least that can expected in this era of raw feelings.

But, all the same, to hell with him.

curved space on October 20, 2011 at 7:39 AM

Sounds like it is time to stick the proverbial fork in Joe Biden, because I do believe he is done.

pilamaye on October 20, 2011 at 7:43 AM

He got Joe to repeat the line that rapes will rise. Great!
I’m hating the thug security guard lady rolling her eyes and deciding that it’s time for Joe to go.

On second thought….

I laughed the whole time and then I heard that “Who are you with?” And I then I got a little mad.

This begs the question… Who is the idiot who let’s Joe go outside everyday? Surely they know he will say/do something stupid on a regular basis don’t they?

jeffn21 on October 20, 2011 at 8:40 AM

Uncle Joe should consider himself lucky if he doesn’t end up in a federal pen for his crimes against America, getting raped by a big ugly dude with jailhouse tattoos.

ChristianRock on October 20, 2011 at 9:17 AM

The level of Fear-Mongering to which this administration is willing to go in order to get Obama’s Job Bill passed has reached the ‘CRIMINAL’ level. Never in my life have I seen a President (and VP) so divisive, so pathetic, and so lacking in leadership and honesty as needing to and being willing to lying and engaging in fear-mongering to get their way!

easyt65 on October 20, 2011 at 9:37 AM

So … Under Obama murder, robbery, and rape is up? Pretty damning statistic, there. Thanks for pointing that out Sheriff Joe.

bitsy on October 20, 2011 at 10:03 AM

Anyone who has done serious political battle understands that many come to believe the other side (all who don’t agree with them)is, in reality, the most evil of all people. With the help of leftist(Godless) professors and peers, and fed by the media and the Democratic/Socialists -they have honed such emotions into weapons.

When you live with sheep you enjoy the grass, when you are part of a wolf pack, you enjoy nothing less than continual bloodletting.

How else did so many people believe in a poll that President Reagan was far more evil than the world’s great despots-such as Castro, Che etc?

The fact is that hatred and envy, anarchy, unstability etc are avenues built into all of us (fallen man) and that it is only through seeking truth and goodness (through the help of natural law and Nature’s God)that we are able to even want to overcome such emotions.

Don L on October 20, 2011 at 10:04 AM

According to the FBI for 2010:

“Nationally, murder declined 4.4 percent, while forcible rape dropped 4.2 percent, robbery 9.5 percent, and aggravated assault 3.6 percent—all when compared with 2009 crime figures.”

Seems like Joe don’t know squat!!

wirebitersmith on October 20, 2011 at 10:07 AM

Rapes? Does this mean that Obama will next take over the mattress companies? Or, does this mean, as in the case of a recent Presidental womanizing peer of Joe’s, that “It’s just sex?” Or, does this mean that it depends on what you think “the maning of rape” is?
Relative truth and relative morality make such a disfunctional hybrid.

Yepp but “we” (generic somebodies) voted for them and even now, when we can see everyday the Satanic impulses driving them, over 40% would love to reinstate them. (permanently,I suspect)

I heard him say “Flint” as well.

Because you know Flint Michigan is representative of every city in the US. /

Isn’t Michigan the state with a very large (or largest?) Muslim population? Just sayin’.

paul1149 on October 20, 2011 at 1:20 PM

if $35 billion will drop crime rates…….

why not go for $350 billion and really take a bite out of crime?

why not go for $3.5 trillion and end crime as we know it?

we should just all sign our checks over to the government now.

we’re really not worthy to make any decisions on our own.

maybe I should just call someone in D.C. to come wipe my ARSE since I probably don’t do that right either.

PappyD61 on October 20, 2011 at 1:47 PM

Mattera just showed the world how easy it is to make a complete fool out of someone who is definitely a complete fool. Jake Tapper. Sharyl Attkisson and now Jason Mattera are showing there is a hint of competence in the journalistic community even if it is miniscule in numbers. The lies and deceptions in the corrupt MSM are so obvious that they could be classified as comedians.

You wish our guys would nut up like that tell Anderson Cooper or Piers Nilsman or whatever the hell his name is not to screw with him. Red meat? Red meat being be served on a lovely plate by Miranda Kerr in a french maid costume would be more like it. Mitt Ramen-y has a little of that east coast jerk in him. I guess we’ll have to take what we can get at this point, huh.

An appropriate follow up question might be how made rapes, murders, and burglaries by illegal aliens have occurred because Obama and Biden wont enforce existing laws?

Check out these statistics from http://www.fncic-voiacm.org/statistics.php

(These have been compiled from Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Homeland Security reports.)

83% of warrants for murder in Phoenix are for illegal aliens.
86% of warrants for murder in Albuquerque are for illegal aliens.
75% of those on the most wanted list in Los Angeles , Phoenix and Albuquerque are illegal aliens.
53% plus of all investigated burglaries reported in California, New Mexico, Nevada, Arizona and Texas are perpetrated by illegal aliens.

(These have been compiled by the FNCIC-VOIACM staff from materials they have found or that have been sent to them.)

108 victims were sexually assaulted, including being raped.

8 victims were gang raped.

102 victims were killed in or as a result of an automobile accident.

101 victims were killed in or as a result of a physical assault.
