Joe Biden speaking at this years IAFF convention. His entire speech patronizes and insults the intelligence of many rank and file conservative firefighters. Particularly galling is his use of the memory of our fallen brothers to score political points. Apparently Vice President of the United States, Joseph Biden is completely ignorant of the fact the DEMOCRAT MAYOR MICHAEL NUTTER has tried to break the firefighters union and stopped our contract from being implemented for THREE YEARS. Either that or he just doesn’t give a shit. More firefighters have lost their jobs under Obama and Biden than any other administration in history.
Once again, can someone explain why Sarah Palin isn’t qualified to be Vice President while this IDIOT is running around with Secret Service protection? I guess we should ignore, as usual, another Democrat who shows his true colors when confronted by one of the “Little People”. Last week it was a Democrat Senator who was caught on camera assaulting a reporter who had the temerity to ask him a question. This week, it is the Vice President of the United States belittling a common shopkeeper who only expressed the thoughts of millions of his countrymen AND gave him free custard. Nice.
Joe Biden is hardly qualified to breathe on his own yet we were sold on his intellectual prowess during the campaign. It was even more bizarre that Barack Obama, a man with no history, no accomplishments, no resume’ and no experience assumed the lead on their ticket. Now Biden has become a walking liability at every turn. This is typical of what Democrats think of everyday citizens – but try desperately to keep hidden. It’s the unguarded moments like this that are the most revealing. It’s not his first time either. Joe Biden has a history of making wild, inaccurate, outlandish, dishonest and insensitive remarks. What does it take for a Vice President to get fired? We KNOW what it takes for a General to get his walking papers.
Good thing the shopkeeper doesn’t work for Joe “Bite Me” Biden. Otherwise, he may have been summoned to the White House and fired for comments like that.
Never let a Joe Biden video go to waste…
Cherry Hill Township laid off six police officers today, after negotiations with the police union broke down. “The township is in a financial crisis,” said Dan Keashen, spokesman for the mayor’s office. “We didn’t get the concessions we needed, which are not unlike what other townships have offered.”About half of the towns and cities in New Jersey are expected to lay off police officers this year, according to the New Jersey Policemen’s Benevolent Association. The layoffs, and reductions in other government services, have followed cuts in state aid to municipalities. The announcement of the layoffs in Cherry Hill comes during prolonged negotiations in which the city has proposed to freeze the pay of its 133 police officers. LINK
Well the Obama administrations stimulus plan is again proven to be nothing more than a rip off. It’s a sham and a lie and that’s now settled science. Despite what Obama, “Slow” Joe Biden and the rest of the insaniacs in Congress keep saying, Police Officers around the country are being laid off, furloughed and fired in record numbers. My father lives in this area of New Jersey so you can say the impact of this administrations incompetence does impact me. The safety of my family is always an issue for me.
We have to keep in mind that the 700 billion-plus the Democrats looted from the US treasury hasn’t done anything close to what they claimed it would. While cops and firemen are being laid of the government is HIRING census workers at a record pace. The best part of this? They are celebrating! The government is out of control.
BREAKING — OBAMA, BIDEN DECLARE “RECOVERY SUMMER”: Vice President Biden today will kick off “Recovery Summer,” a six-week-long push designed to highlight the jobs accompanying a surge in stimulus-funded projects to improve highways, parks, drinking water and other public works. Biden will present President Obama with a report laying out a spike in stimulus activity this summer, and how it will contribute to a steady climb to a total of 3.5 million Recovery Act jobs by the end of the year. Biden, Obama and other administration officials will travel to more than two dozen Recovery Act project sites in coming weeks. Tomorrow, the president will travel to Columbus, Ohio, to mark the groundbreaking of the 10,000th Recovery Act road project, around Nationwide Children’s Hospital. On Monday, Biden will travel to Midland, Mich., for the groundbreaking of the new Dow Kokam advanced battery manufacturing facility. LINK
Federal stimulus grants to be announced today in Philadelphia by Vice President Biden and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will pay for the hiring of 93 law enforcement officers in Pennsylvania, including 50 in Philadelphia, a White House official said last night.
New Jersey cities will get funding for a total of 123 officers, including 18 in Trenton and 25 in Paterson, said the official, who was not authorized to speak for attribution.
The money will come from a competitive program set up as part of the $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, enacted in February but not announced in terms of grant recipients until now. Biden and Holder will be joined in a morning news conference at City Hall by Mayor Nutter, Gov. Rendell and Gov. Corzine. LINK
Hey, if Joe Biden trips in the woods and falls down and no one looks is he still the Vice President? Sadly, yes.
Slow Joe is here in Philly today, along with a slew of other weak-kneed, dimwitted, Democrat politicians to crow about Philly getting federal “stimulus” money to hire more police. This at a time Mayor Nutter is threatening to LAY OFF police officers, firefighters and any other city employee he sees in the hallway of City Hall.
He is making these threats at the same time he is begging Harrisburg for an INCREASE in Philadelphia’s local sales tax, from an already higher than the rest of the state 7% to 8%. Is there is anything else he could do to make Philly LESS attractive for businesses and citizens? If there is he just hasn’t stumbled across it.
This big charade is supposed to make us think Obama’s grand illusion of printed up stimulus money is actually making the economy better. It’s not. What these frauds won’t tell everyone at the presser and the state run media won’t ask is how long will the federal government pay for these “Clinton Cops.” Remember Bill Clinton’s 100,000 cops nonsense? Same thing. Philly is getting 50.
Three years is all they are funded for. Then the federal subsidy dries up and the cops either get laid off or the city doesn’t hire any more until the LOSE through attrition the 50 cops that this stunt pays for.
This is really becoming an Obama psycho circus. This administration is like a bunch of spoiled children determined to get their way at any cost. They are absolutely going to do what they want, no matter how wrong it is. It will take a generation to repair the damage inflicted on this country by Obama.
I’m not sure if this actually is our esteemed Vice President or not, but the mere fact that it is worthy of consideration is terrifying.
Biden has now displaced blondes as the brunt of every joke.
JOE CAN I HAVE A WORD WITH YOU…
Vice President Joe Biden, well-known for his verbal gaffes, may have finally outdone himself, divulging potentially classified information meant to save the life of a sitting vice president. According to a report, while recently attending the Gridiron Club dinner in Washington, an annual event where powerful politicians and media elite get a chance to cozy up to one another, Biden told his dinnermates about the existence of a secret bunker under the old U.S. Naval Observatory, which is now the home of the vice president. The bunker is believed to be the secure, undisclosed location former Vice President Dick Cheney remained under protection in secret after the 9/11 attacks. LINK
Holy cow, this guy needs to go. Joe Biden has just given Nancy Pelosi the biggest gift of her career. Biden makes her appear competent, and she is praying for him to knock her off the front page. She may get her wish.
It used to be funny when Biden would make “Verbal gaffes.” It was usually good for a laugh watching him insult immigrant convenience store workers or some other such blather. It was predictable to watch him doubletalk his way through the debates. But it’s not funny anymore.
Now Biden is revealing classified information, state secrets. His blunders may put future Vice Presidents, their families and staffs at risk in the event of a national crisis. It is time for him to offer his resignation before he does serious damage to the President. The guy has now illustrated once and for all that he doesn’t know when to shut up. He can’t control himself. That’s a fatal flaw for the man second in line to the President.
It’s not that we never saw this coming. Biden himself said he wasn’t the best choice for the job. For Obama, it was clearly a political calculation to add substance to his anemic Presidential ticket. Now that political move has clearly backfired. Biden is a liability, plain and simple. As Al Gore likes to say, there is no need to debate the issue any further, the facts are in. With every new gaffe, the Sarah Palin detractors sink further into a credibility gap.
Palin is clearly superior to Biden in many respects.
Yes, the facts on Joe Biden are in and they’re not pretty. Irresponsibility is now becoming the hallmark of the Democrats and the Obama administration. The President needs to nip it in the bud before lives are lost for real.
Will somebody please shut him up…
How many people start off a new job by trying to WEAKEN their authority BEFORE they even take over? No kidding, that’s Joe Biden for you. Biden is possibly the LAMEST politician in Washington right behind Harry Reid. If you want to get an idea about this guys intellectual “gravitas,” Vice President Cheney sums it up for us here:
The current vice president , appearing on “Fox News Sunday,” taught a lesson in constitutional law before brushing off Mr. Biden’s criticism as “campaign rhetoric”:
[Mr. Biden] also said that the — all the powers and responsibilities of the executive branch are laid out in Article 1 of the Constitution. Well, they’re not. Article 1 of the Constitution is the one on the legislative branch. Joe’s been chairman of the Judiciary Committee, a member of the Judiciary Committee in the Senate, for 36 years, teaches constitutional law back in Delaware, and can’t keep straight which article of the Constitution provides for the legislature and which provides for the executive. So I think — I write that off as campaign rhetoric. I don’t take it seriously. And if he wants to diminish the office of vice president, that’s obviously his call.
Yeah you gotta love Dick Cheney, Prince of Darkness that he is. We are in for some serious trouble with Biden being a “heartbeat away” as the left whined during the election. In case you wondered about Biden’s view of the Vice Presidency he spells it out for us:
His role, Mr. Biden said, would be “to give the president of the United States the best, sagest, most accurate, most insightful advice and recommendations” he can offer.
So Joe Biden in his own words thinks that the Vice President should essentially give the President his advice and opinion on things. In that case, I guess Sarah Palin would have been utterly incapable of advising the President on issues like: Abortion, womens’ rights, childrens’ health and disability programs, taxes in relation to blue collar families, gun control, energy policy in relation to our environment, education, or ANY other domestic issue like health care. Thank God, because we are SOOO much better off with Joe Biden whispering in Barack Obama’s ear. He’s really smart and knows TONS about stuff. Just listen, he’ll tell you so. Ugh.
SO… if you want to read about the stark contrast in philosophies between the two men, here’s the link to the article. LINK
