Joe Biden's unbounded id is the talk of the nation after Thursday's debate. But the Veep is also the elder Democratic statesman on international affairs, and in between his snickers, guffaws and "malarkey," he shed newsworthy light on Obama Administration foreign policy. Let's roll the tape. On Iran, Mr. Biden broke new ground, though most of the media missed it. To a question about the Administration's willingness to stop the Tehran regime from going nuclear,
Aside from the lies about voting for two wars, Catholics suing the administration and negligence in Bezgazi, It is very apparent and scary that the Vice President of the US is mentally unstable.Does anyone want this bizaar buffone anywhere near the nuke button?
Biden acted the Court Jester and who looks to the Court Jester for intelligence? He played the part so well that no one believed he was acting the fool; he is the fool. This is the person who Barack Hussain Obama picked from the entire country to be his VP, the one who would take his place if anything happened to him. Something is wrong with this picture.
You knew Biden was in hype attack mode when he deep referring to Romney and Ryan as 'my friend' instead of the congenial McLame 'my good friend'. That aside, Joe's idiocy and lack of knowledge is slowly coming out. Not that it will do any good as the Kneepad media will bury as much as possible,but the Internet and other sources will make it known to more people than in the past.
The thought of Joe Biden as President is truly frightening. To say he lacks intelligence is to give him a pass for his untruthfulness. Which is it? I don't know, but he would be a disaster. And his is rude and boorish, to boot.
Watching Biden at the debate reminded me of a person who had had one too many beers. He was loud, obnoxious, arrogant and rude. That was Joe being Joe.
One other observation. Debates are intended to be vehicles by which ideas and policies can be aired and discussed. That requires the participants be free to express their views without interruptions and let the people decide which views fit their interests and needs.
But that wasn't Joe's purpose for being there; it was to silence Ryan, not debate him. Anyone who is in opposition of truth will do everything in their power to silence it; deny the facts and discredit the evidence. That is what Joe came to do and he did it well.
Joe and the Democrat party is no different, in principle, than Islam; they don't debate, they don't reason and they don't listen; they stop what offends them however they can.
If we lived in the days when people could duel with pistols, Biden would not have hesitated to kill Ryan... to silence him. He can't do that today, but he can laugh, be obnoxious, arrogant, rude, crass, demeaning and disrespectful.
That is what the Democrat Party is and Joe is their senior statesman.
FTA: "In a clearer moment this summer, Mitt Romney said he would insist that Iran not enrich any uranium, even ostensibly for peaceful purposes."
When Romney is sworn in as president on Jan. 20, I hope someone will show him a text of Article IV of the NPT, which states: "Nothing in this Treaty shall be interpreted as affecting the inalienable right of all the Parties to the Treaty to develop research, production and use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes without discrimination and in conformity with Articles I and II of this Treaty."
Iran's antagonists never want to acknowledge this Article IV of the NPT, because it undermines their case against Iran.
Enrichment is part of the production process of nuclear energy.
As a sovereign nation, Iran has an intrinsic, inealienable right to enrich uranium, as acknowledged in Article IV of the NPT as quoted above.
When a president Romney is made aware of the provision of Article IV, I think he will change his mind about insisting that "Iran not enrich any uranium, even ostensibly for peaceful purposes".
#3 - there was an article in Forbes in August that suggested the same thing about Biden. (Forbes Op Ed 8/20/2012.)
There are worse things for a politician than lack of insight – and the person selected by Barack Obama to be a heartbeat away from the presidency exhibits many of them. Joe Biden has problems with impulse control and reality testing; increasingly, his utterances suggest some sort of dementia.
There was a point about half way through the debate when the moderator said something to Biden that immediately changed his demeanor from a clown to totally enraged. He rose from his chair and appeared he was going to physically attack her. From then on his lips were pinched and fire flashed from his eyes. I didn't catch what she said and haven't seen it discussed anywhere. Anyone else notice?
Approximately twenty five years ago, my father (who has since passed) said Joe Biden was the dumbest senator in Washington. Over the years, I've been reminded many times how accurate my Dad was. The debate on Thursday was the crowning glory/swan song for Joe the Clown. And I'm being polite by calling him a clown. There's another word that better describes him.
Obama's very first decision to select this idiot as his running mate is a small example of all the bad decisions he's made in the past four years. Thursday night should have made it crystal clear to those doubting voters that they have a double reason to vote for Mitt Romney on November 6th, not only to replace Obama as POTUS, but also, to get rid of Joe the Clown.
The headline Biden's Intelligence is misleading. Biden has no intelligence. This man showed us he took debate notes from Bozo the clown and applied them appropriately. I thought I was watching reruns of Mr. Ed. Keep the Crest Whitener away from this guy.
I think that Biden's inappropriate responses WILL influence thinking persons who claim to be undecided in this election. Biden was the perfect example of who you WOULD NOT want to take over should something happen to Zero.
FTA:"News stories suggest this is happening already without any U.S. involvement, as the Syrian war pulls in Iraq, Lebanon and Turkey." Therein lies the two things intellejunt Joe was sent to do:defuse the reports of an ever-widening mideast war prior to November and make faces and fake laughter on your side of the split-screen. In doing so,hardly anyone concentrates on what a REAL vice president looks and sounds like.
I'm scared after watching this debate. If Biden, or anyone else in our government thinks that making a bomb out of highly enriched uranium is hard they are delusional. Back in the Manhattan Project days they built huge facilities in Hanford, WA and Oak Ridge, TN to produce fissile material. The bomb dropped on Hiroshima ("Little Boy")used a naval gun barrel to shoot one piece of the uranium onto the other by means of chemical explosives. It produced an explosion of 16 KT and killed 150,000 people.
In February 1945, the specifications for the bomb were completed (model 1850). The bomb, except for the uranium payload, was ready at the beginning of May 1945.
John Podesta, a former White House chief of staff under Bill Clinton, will join the Obama White House as a senior counselor to President Barack Obama. The New York Times first reported the move late Monday, followed soon after by the Associated Press, who cited two people familiar with the move. Those people asked not to be identified because the announcement hadn´t been made official. Podesta served as Clinton´s fourth and final chief of staff between 1998 and 2001 before founding the Center for American Progress, a Democratic think tank with close ties to the Obama White House, in 2003. Podesta will take
JOHANNESBURG — One of the ironies of the praise from world leaders for the late Nelson Mandela at a state memorial service Tuesday is that the former South African president frequently irritated the United States and others with his positions and loyalty to longtime supporters such as Cuba and Libya. Both Cuban leader Fidel Castro and Libya’s Moammar Gaddafi had long supported the African National Congress (ANC). And as president, Mandela did not abandon them, despite their human rights abuses and despite Libya’s involvement in the 1988 Lockerbie bombing in which a Pan Am transatlantic flight was destroyed over Scotland, killing
BEIRUT — Syrian government troops supported by the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah took control of a strategic crossroads Monday in far western Syria and reopened the country’s main highway to the coast, according to state-run Syrian media and rebel activists. The capture of the town of Nabek from rebels trying to topple the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad is considered critical to transporting the remnants of Syria’s chemical weapons stores out of the country for destruction. Syrian state television claimed the capture happened on Sunday, but Assad-sympathetic news outlets in neighboring Lebanon said that the town was brought completely under control
A bill set for fast-track passage in the South Carolina Senate in January aims to eliminate Obamacare in the state. The law could become a model for other states fed up with the federal health-care law. House Bill 3101, titled the “South Carolina Freedom of Health Care Protection Act,” passed the state House of Representatives last April by a 65-34 vote. The bill now heads to the GOP-controlled Senate with special-order priority, setting up the likelihood that South Carolina will become the first state to exempt citizens and businesses from all participation in the Affordable Care Act. State Sen. State Sen. Tom Davis, the bill’s sponsor
There are plenty of reasons this is the lowest point of Barack Obama´s presidency. He hasn´t fulfilled a major legislative campaign promise, his signature second-term immigration initiative is paralyzed, and the administration may never entirely recover from the unforced errors surrounding the Affordable Care Act´s rollout. But don´t blame these problems alone for Obama´s record-low 40 percent approval rating. In truth, his agenda went off the rails on a crisp December morning last year, when Adam Lanza strolled into Sandy Hook Elementary and killed 20 children and six adults. Obama hasn´t gotten back on track since. The Connecticut massacre set in
Former president Bill Clinton in a new interview condemns the National Security Agency´s reported collection of industrial data as part of its surveillance programs. Reports based on documents leaked by Edward Snowden have shown that the NSA collected financial data from the network of Brazil´s state-run oil company, Petrobras. Clinton is in Brazil this week. "We should never collect economic information under the pretext of security," Clinton told O Globo, a newspaper in Rio de Janeiro, according to a translation. Clinton is in Rio for the Clinton Global Initiative, which is bringing together business and political leaders from South America. Clinton has previously said
Barack and Michelle Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, George and Laura Bush will all figuratively wear a necklace at Nelson Mandela’s memorial tomorrow—the Winnie Mandela necklace that is the most grotesque one of all time. The prime ministers of Canada and Britain, Stephen Harper and David Cameron will wear the necklace, too. But none of the world leaders at the Mandela funeral—Daily Mail touted as the biggest funeral in the world since Winston Churchill—will hear the screams of the young blacks who died in agony wearing the Winnie Mandela necklace. Time and the politically correct era can never wash away the
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
President Obama, former president George W. Bush and their wives departed Washington Monday morning on Air Force One on their way to a memorial service in South Africa for Nelson Mandela. The president and first lady Michelle Obama are being accompanied by Mr. Bush, former first lady Laura Bush and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on the flight to Johannesburg. A four-hour memorial service will be held on Tuesday for South Africa’s first black president. Mr. Mandela, the anti-apartheid revolutionary, died on Thursday at age 95. Former President Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea are traveling separately to South Africa. Former President
