“We can win North Carolina again!” says Biden… in Virginia

posted at 1:21 pm on August 14, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

Who hasn’t had some sort of rockstar-esque, “Thank you, Cincinnat– er, Denver!” slip-of-the-tongue moment of public-speaking horror, and Vice President Joe Biden was stumping in North Carolina yesterday. And, North Carolina and Virginia are similar in electoral weight, their usually-quite-reddish-but-lately-more-purplish recent histories, and their too-close-to-call swing statuses… but, still: It’s Biden. It’s kind of funny.

“With you, we can win North Carolina again, and if we do, we win the election!”

I think I saw him realize what he said and blanch for just a split second there, but he just decided to roll with it. Heh. Anyway, I merely point this out in light of the recent revelation that Joe Biden and Paul Ryan are going to have to debate one another on the national stage soon, and if this sort of melodramatic, populist silliness is the best defense Joe Biden can offer on the Obama economy…

…then Paul Ryan is going to absolutely obliterate him. [Rubs hand together and laughs gleefully.]

Vice President Biden Rally in Danville, Virginia.

This in itself is hilarious! I wonder if Biden’s body will be given to science to study how man can live without a brain?

Biden: Democrat’s gift to Republicans.

I do not know if anyone said this or not, but it reminds of the old southwest commercials ” wanna get away

And remember when Potato(e) was a big deal. Of course if Biden were a Republican we would NEVER hear the end of it. Biden has committed enough gaffes that any Republican Veep should get a free pass for the next 50 years. As for the debate between them. Mr. Ryan meet fish and barrel.

Also, if Slow Jow were a Rep. The Saturday Night Live (dead) skits would be never ending.

Everyone is assuming this was a gaffe…perhaps not. With Eric Holder at the Injustice Dept doing all he can to prevent voter ID, why couldn’t he have been talking about busing a bunch of Virginians to vote in NC? What are you gonna do, tell the Black Panthers just outside the door that Obama’s guys are cheating?
