Biden: “Spread your legs, you’re going to be frisked”

posted at 6:01 pm on January 3, 2013 by Erika Johnsen

Lest we let the fact that we’re looking at another long four years of an Obama presidency depress us too deeply, at least we can take a small bit of comfort in knowing that, since the president ultimately decided to stick with his running mate, we’re in for another four years of classic Joe Biden gaffes. …No? Not comforting?

And then:

As senators brought their families up to take photos with the vice president, Biden would always single out the mothers, directly calling them “Mom,” embracing them as he said hello and touching some of their faces. …

“Mom, I’ll see you in a little bit,” Biden said to the mother of Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa., as she walked away. “I hope I’ll sneak over and see you.” …

Then came Biden’s odd jokes, like when he teased the husband of newly sworn-in Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D.

“Spread your legs.  You’re going to be frisked,” Biden said to Heitkamp’s husband as he was being asked to put his hands at his side for the mock swearing-in.

Maybe I’m too squeamish, but did anybody else find that a little blood-curdlingly awkward? Could that really fly as a passable level of verbal discipline for an honest-to-goodness Biden-2016 run?

o/t: Report: Hagel Worked to Shut Down USO Port in Haifa, Israel

Former senator Chuck Hagel, said to be on the short list to succeed Leon Panetta as secretary of defense, reportedly tried to shut down a USO port in the Israeli city of Haifa when he served as CEO of the USO. The Washington Free Beacon reports:

“He said to me, ‘Let the Jews pay for it’,” said Marsha Halteman, director for military and law enforcement programs at the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA), which led the battle to keep USO Haifa operational.

Hagel’s campaign to close the storied USO port struck many observers, including the U.S. Navy and congressional leaders, as misguided. Those same critics argue today that Hagel’s animosity toward the Jewish state leaves him unsuited to be the nation’s next defense secretary.

“He essentially told us that if we wanted to keep the USO [in Haifa] open—and when I say ‘we’, he meant ‘the Jews’—he said the Jews could pay for it,” said Halteman, who recalled being taken aback by the comment.

“I told him at the time that I found his comments to be anti-Semitic,” she said. “He was playing into that dual loyalty thing.”

Hagel has been accused of anti-Semitism for charging that lawmakers on Capitol Hill are intimidated by the”Jewish lobby,” and of homophobia for remarks he made in a 1998 confirmation hearing, for which he has since apologized. Outgoing representative Barney Frank, as well as senators Tom Coburn and John Cornyn have publicly expressed their opposition to his nomination.

Biden reminds of a quote from the Peter Sellar’s movie, “Being There (1979)”:

It’s for sure a white man’s world in America. Look here: I raised that boy since he was the size of a piss-ant. And I’ll say right now, he never learned to read and write. No, sir. Had no brains at all. Was stuffed with rice pudding between th’ ears. Shortchanged by the Lord, and dumb as a jackass. Look at him now! Yes, sir, all you’ve gotta be is white in America, to get whatever you want. Gobbledy-gook!

Richard Ben Cramer wrote his magnum opus “What it Takes (to become President) (1992)” about the 1988 election. He included Biden who ran. He loves Biden. But he said, there’s no way Biden could be President, as much as he loves him, because he just says stupid stuff, in a disqualifying way. Of course, that didn’t keep Obama from asking him to be his VP. We have Forrest Gump as VP, next in line to the Presidency.

Could that really fly as a passable level of verbal discipline for an honest-to-goodness Biden-2016 run?

I actually feel a bit sorry for Joe Biden, because I really don’t think he knows his political career’s over not in 2016, but right around the end of 2014 if he makes any serious move towards running for president in four years.

The other Dems and the big media outlets may have been serial ignoring all of Biden’s gaffes since the Neil Kinnock debacle a quarter century ago, but trust me — they’ve been making lists, checking them twice and have a full dossier of all of the vice president’s mistakes. Combine that with the fact that the party has decided to play the special interest card in perpetuity — or at least until it finally stops working at the national level — and you can be assured they do not want an old wacky white guy as their party’s nominee or even as one of their prime contenders in 2016.

If Biden starts making noises about running for president, he will suddenly discover all the fun Republican candidates have had over the years dealing with a hostile media. Except that instead of having to pull stuff out of thin are to create controversies, they’ve got two-plus decades of Sheriff Joe material to work with.

A Biden run in 2016 should provide us with thousands of hours of comic relief as we watch the Mainstream liberal Media try desperately, valiantly to cover up his many many many many gaffes, screwups and blunders.

Only with “Greezy Joe For Fo’ Years Mo’ ” would the white-glove Republican Party have a chance against the vote-stealing Democrat thug Party with its illegal immigrant illegal voters, dead people illegally voting, disenfranchisement of our absentee military voters,SEIU union thuggery, ACORN thuggery, Mainstream Media anti-conservative malignment, etc Etc ETC.
