New American Crossroads ad urges, “Run, Joe, Run”; Update: WH press office hasn’t released a Biden transcript in two months

posted at 10:41 am on August 17, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

I could have added this as an update to the post earlier this morning, but this is too much fun to have buried at the bottom of a thread.  American Crossroads has a new ad out today that rejects the skepticism and cynicism that has some (Democrats) urging our esteemed Vice President to do almost anything else but run for another term.  The new spot, which hopefully will see air time soon, acts as a Biden’s Greatest Hits Volume I — which doesn’t include his latest singles “Nothing Could Be Finer than to be in Carolina Oops Virginia” and “Twentieth Century Faux,” but does have Biden’s off-key rendition of “Chains of Fools.”  Who doesn’t want this man on a major-party ticket as the argument for the judgment of the man who selected him for the nation’s back-up plan?  Republicans certainly do:

Is that our friend Jason Mattera in there, getting a lecture on how Republicans want more murder and rape?  Why yes it is.  Since that episode was from last year, let’s refresh our memories on this four-Pinocchio performance from Sheriff Joe:

I actually laughed out loud when I read this scolding from Kessler, who gives Biden the maximum four Pinocchios for his ludicrous argument:

“In any case, the vice president should know better than to spout off half-baked facts in service of a dubious argument. Even if one believes there is a link between crime and the number of police—which is debatable and subject to many caveats—there is no excuse to make the dramatic claim that more people will die or be raped without additional funds for police. When making such a breathtaking charge, you had better have your facts straight.”

The Veep “should know better than to spout off half-baked facts in service of a dubious argument”?  Hey, that’s Joe Biden’s entire life.  Remember “Recovery Summer”?  Does anyone recall Biden telling CBS News how President Franklin Delano Roosevelt went on television after the 1929 crash to reassure America, even though FDR was two years away from winning his first presidential election and the only people watching TV in 1929 were those experimenting with the technology?  The only time I can recall Biden getting anything right was when he gave speeches during his presidential bid in 1987 about the hard life of his family — and the only reason he got it right was because he was talking about Neil Kinnock’s family in speeches Biden plagiarized from the British politician.

Besides, Biden never intended to debate the facts.  He just wanted to sling mud in an attempt to demagogue rational opposition to a replay of the same policies that brought us Biden’s “Recovery Summer” in 2010.  He should get a couple of McCarthys to go along with his Pinocchios.

I’m with American Crossroads.  Let’s have a debate over which party takes the one-heartbeat-away-from-the-presidency issue more seriously.  Run, Joe, Run*!

Note *: Not to be confused with one of the worst pop songs of all time.

Update: Via Drudge, the LA Times reports that it’s been two months since the White House press office has released a Biden transcript:

There are other indications that aides are attempting to minimize the dissemination of uncomfortable moments — whether they be genuine gaffes or moments they worry will be misrepresented. The White House press office has not released a complete transcript of any Biden speech, whether campaign or official, in more than two months. Transcripts for all of Obama’s speeches, however, are distributed quickly, as they are for many of the first lady’s events.

Aides acknowledge that Biden was vulnerable to a “gaffe-watch,” given his reputation.

Yeah, well, that reputation was well-established before Obama put him a heartbeat away from the Oval Office.

All these histrionics about Biden when Obama surged back in the lead in Rasmussen

daveyandgoliath on August 17, 2012 at 10:45 AM

So will you only be citing us Rasmussen polling from now until the election?

By the way, there haven’t been any major “polls” re. O’bama VS Romney in about a week now. And all of the “polls” showing O’bama with a lead over Romney from last week were not only heavily oversampling Democrats, but they were also using Registered Voters, not Likely Voters like Rasmussen does.

It’s telling that you’re so excited about O’bama being a single point ahead of Romney in a “Republican Funded Poll” that in fact has a margin of error of 3. Shows your desperation.

Of course the Obama campaign and it’s surrogates have no problem with this new easily rattled Mitt.

verbaluce on August 17, 2012 at 11:52 AM

Obama is the textbook definition of ‘lack of substance’, actually you can use ‘Obama’ and ‘lack of substance’ interchangably, perfect synonims they are….so, don’t blame Romney for simply pointing that out and contrasting obozo’s hollowness with his own thorough, factual and applied persona.

At this point I think that Obama would like to cage Biden and put him on the roof of his car. At the very least, this sudden Biden vacation in Delaware is a metaphorical “putting Biden in chains” and the cry of the populace should be: “FREE JOE BIDEN.”

Just saw Karl Rove on TV last hour, and he was asked if the surge in donations to the Romney Campaign and the RNC has been paralleled by an increase in fundraising at his SuperPAC, American Crossroads.

In short, he said yes there has been a noticeable increase in the number of donations and the size of donations.

SuperPACs are going to hit Obama hard on the substance of his abysmal record as President on every policy area that there is.

So, get ready ’cause it’s coming.

All the ‘substancey’ stuff will come in due course. Don’t you worry. This stuff is just to good to pass up.

Also, since you’re engaged in conversation, I have something to ask: Obama keeps saying we don’t want to go back to the policies that got us into this mess. What policies is he talking about?

More Obama style “substance”, from official State Department website.

American officeholders are supposed to take great pains to separate their campaigns from their official duties. Using taxpayer resources to blatantly promote the president’s positions on foreign policy—and even editing the historical record—is an egregious abuse of power.

Absolutely true — and it’s also a measure of the insecurity of the President and his staff. They’re busy trying to manipulate government records to secure his legacy, when it’s the manipulation that will speak loudest to historians of the era.

The Dear Leader approach is bad enough — but State also seems to be using the spin sheets to punish nations that don’t agree with Obama’s policies:

Roberts noted that “They seem to be not ‘fact sheets’ but brag sheets,” adding that the edits appear to treat countries more favorably when the Obama Administration agrees with their leaders.

Isn’t this something we’d expect to see from Pyongyang rather than Washington DC?

They account for a very small amount of Axelrod’s campaign fund burn rate, but, it is enjoyable to count off the dollars as they post here. Multiply that by all the blogs in the country and we have a good example as to why Obama can’t balance a checkbook. I suppose that burn rate will only increase just before true realization finally sets in and middle schoolers are finally thrust into the breach. Remember the desperate Berlin defense effort in WWII?. The elderly and scholchildren given sticks and told to man the barriers? Yep.

Aww, ‘substancey’…you’re right there, in the Poetic Licence Hall of (in)Famy with Obzo and sheriff Joe…famous poetic licences (aka ignorance licences :) include: ‘Austrian language’, ‘we will lead in auto manufacturing in the 20th century’, Falklands = Maldives, ‘Hawaii is in Asia’, navy corpse man, Polish death camps…etc..etc…etc…

Considering how many they said were registered in the two open periods, you gotta believe there will be many more coming out of the woodwork leading up to the general.

There are just too many to cram into one ad, red. Where would it end?

“My mother believed and my father believed that if I wanted to be president of the United States, I could be, I could be Vice President!” –Joe Biden, campaigning in Youngstown, Ohio, May 16, 2012

hawkdriver on August 17, 2012 at 1:00 PM

“I promise you, the president has a big stick. I promise you.” –Joe Biden, citing Theodore Roosevelt’s famous quote, “Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far.” (April 26, 2012)

(Although Obama’s friend Reggie should know more about this)

hawkdriver on August 17, 2012 at 1:02 PM

“This is a big @#$king deal!” –Joe Biden, caught on an open mic congratulating President Barack Obama during the health care signing ceremony, Washington, D.C., March 23, 2010

hawkdriver on August 17, 2012 at 1:02 PM

“His mom lived in Long Island for ten years or so. God rest her soul. And- although, she’s- wait- your mom’s still- your mom’s still alive. Your dad passed. God bless her soul.” –Joe Biden, on the mother of Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen, who is very much alive, Washington, D.C., March 17, 2010

jimver on August 17, 2012 at 1:05 PM

Red, this is actually my favorite.

“If we do everything right, if we do it with absolute certainty, there’s still a 30% chance we’re going to get it wrong.” –Joe Biden, speaking to members of the House Democratic caucus who were gathered in Williamsburg, Va., for their annual retreat, Feb. 6, 2009

Then again, I tell my students that I’m 80 percent sure I’m right 100 percent of the time.

hawkdriver on August 17, 2012 at 1:06 PM

Joe provides us a valuable history lesson.

“When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened.” –Joe Biden, apparently unaware that FDR wasn’t president when the stock market crashed in 1929 and that only experimental TV sets were in use at that time, interview with Katie Couric, Sept. 22, 2008

My all time Biden favorite:

“You have to have a slight Indian accent to operate a 7-11

ToddPA on August 17, 2012 at 1:08 PM

Remember when Joe Delaware made this introduction?

“A man I’m proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next President of the United States — Barack America!” –Joe Biden, at his first campaign rally with Barack Obama after being announced as his running mate, Springfield, Ill., Aug. 23, 2008

(And that’s “Captain” Barack America to you pissant conservatives out there)

hawkdriver on August 17, 2012 at 1:10 PM

But then, you knew after he said this, there was nothing he could say that would make the president drop him.

“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.” –Joe Biden, referring to Barack Obama at the beginning of the 2008 Democratic primary campaign, Jan. 31, 2007

(Talk about a teflon gaffer!) And no one even talks about him claiming his “Blackhawk went down” in Afghanistan. Yeah, him and Kerry pushed a 101st crew to fly them in bad weather and they had to land. But “went down”? Please!

He’s a walking, talking bullet-proof, gaffe making machine.

Potatoe!

hawkdriver on August 17, 2012 at 1:14 PM

Obama wanted an invisible man running mate in 2008. Someone who’d not take any of his limelight or have any impact on his rise to glory. Now that he could use a hand getting reelected, that dead weight VP is getting very heavy. Deservedly so.

I think it’s great that Hillary turned him down as well. She could have energized his campaign quite a bit. But even she can’t support the radical level of his vision for our country.

And who can forget Joe’s three college degrees, earned on his full-ride scholarship?

You are so right too many to choose from.

redridinghood on August 17, 2012 at 1:46 PM

You know, it occurs to me that Biden could be part of the reason Obama has gutted NASA. The Veep is in charge of the space program, and, well, maybe Obama just wants to limit the effects of his incompetence. So in reality, Obama is simply looking out for us, controlling government waste…

Yeah, that’s the ticket!
