Joe Biden Makes History
American Spectator, by Paul Kengor

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/15/2012 6:14:31 AM

Joe Biden's antics against Paul Ryan have taken a few days to sink in, and should take longer still. For starters, try to imagine being Paul Ryan last Thursday: a young politician in the hot seat, the eyes of the world pressing upon him, as he tries to make careful and succinct statements in a most-intense environment, while all along, literally nearly every minute -- Biden interrupted Ryan 80-plus times -- his opponent smirks, scoffs, laughs uncontrollably, flaps his arms, and, generally, acts like a petulant child.

I can't wait for this toothy phoney to join the ranks of the unemployed in January.
I have detested him since about 1983. He is not a nice guy. He is a pacifist, big government liberal, who would backstab his own mother for poltical advantage. I admit he is extremely cunning, but otherwise dumb as a box of rocks.

Biden was net sent to dabate, discuss or defend, he was sent to silence the opposition... much like, in principle, the way Islam silences opposition.

Unbelievably, I JUST heard Donald Trump (a regular Monday contibutor to FOX) --on Fox today, essentially say he DID NOT think Biden was 'out of bounds'.....Trump said Biden was being Biden.-----------I was so disgusted with Trump's assessment, I turned the channel.----Obviously he either didn't watch the debate we all did.....OR he it totally comfortable with clownish behavior during a serious debate.....I have to wonder how Trump would feel if someone acted as childish & obnoxious around him!!!!!!

What #5 said. I don't believe Donald Trump even watched the Debate. He seemed to be going on what other people had already said, except for the line about "both of them did a good job", which is ridiculous. I guess that means he would hire a laughing-hyena like biden to work for him? I doubt it. He should have just been honest about it. Instead, while promoting his new season on the NothingButCr*p network, he made a fool of himself by giving a critique of a debate he obviously knew nothing about.

Ratcheting Alinskyism. Ridiculing and dismissing the right not so much a tactic any more, a way of life for progs. Biden/Axelrod took it several clicks up but the stage was big. What looks like rabid histrionics to the masses is heartfelt passion to our betters.

Acts like?

Biden's task was to make Paul Ryan look too immature to be a heartbeat away from the presidency.

What he accomplished was making himself look too immature to be a heartbeat away from the presidency.

Buh-bye.

It's becoming more and more convincing that the Democrat party attracts a certain type of emotionally retarded people who have no principles, and instead are bullies full of rage and malice.

They use the fake out party line of being for the rights of the "little guy" as an excuse to hate on other people who won't get behind their twisted world view. A great example are the loony-toon actresses who are obsessed with abortion rights but wouldn't dream of eating an animal.

A good Catholic doesn't take pro-abortion positions, a good Catholic gives to charity instead d hoarding his fortune. My income is about 26 thousand and I give over $3,000 per year, that's many times what hhe gives.

I didn't watch the debate, I only listened to it. I thought Biden was making his points well, even though he lies a lot, but was being too brash, boorish and bullying. I believed he was going to lose the debate because of that.

I think his teeth look perfect. True, nobody has perfect teeth, and that makes them a little creepy. But there's nothing wrong with trying to keep a good set of teeth in your head. There are so many things more substantive to criticize about him that his teeth should not be an issue.

VP Biden's performance will be forever presented in high school & college speech classes as "How Not to Act in a Serious Debate."

No one can deny that Paul Ryan tried to address the serious issues affecting this country and the world in a thoughtful manner. Unfortunately, Biden chose to play the role of Bozo the Clown.

Ryan won the debate hands down. Can anybody remember the Obama Administration's views on anything from the debate?

I too saw Donald Trump on Fox and Friends dismissing the egregious behavior of Biden. I can only conclude that Trump has some sort of personal relationship with Biden as many seem to do.

It's amazing how many on the right give Biden a pass as though he were a cranky, nutty but somehow beloved old uncle.

The thought that this drunken bozo with the $20k dentures is a heartbeat away from being the president is truly terrifying.

FDR's VEEP, John Nance Garner, said somthing ling like,"being the VPOTUS is as worthless as the content of a spitoon."
The constitution describes only two things for the VEEP. 1. Take POTUS' place if he is removed from office by death, impeachment or resigns. There may be other reasons, but I can't think of any. The other he can take the seat a Senate Chairman and use his vote to break a tie vote in the senate. That is all... oh yea, I forgot... all act as POTUS' resident clown, jerk and hatchet man.

I'm more cynical, as my folks were in politics, so when I tell you I made a $10 bet with a friend that Biden would bring up his dead wife and daughter again, said friend was aghast.

Aghast that I would mention Biden politicizing the death of his wife and daughter, but even more shocked when he actually did it.

Remember, this is not new information and is a part of the Biden narrative. He brought it up because it is a tool he uses and he obviously felt the need to use as many tools as he could against Ryan.

Biden was that threatened.

It's clear that Biden's assignment from Axelrod was to make Ryan lose his temper.

It worked like a charm on millions of people watching on TV but didn't make a dent in Paul Ryan's composure.

Biden seemed to change into Old Sorrowful Joe after he realized he'd failed and the kid was still relaxed.

No Tourette's Syndrome. What he has always done and continues to do is deliberate. Some are so unsure of themselves all their lives that they grow up to be bullies. Some tell dirty jokes and act the buffoon to be liked.

I am not interested in his pathology. He is a heartbeat away from an already dreadful presidency. He is totally unfit for the office.

I used to watch him run Senate committee hearings. He did exactly the same thing. How anyone could call him a nice guy is beyond me. He wouldn't even be an amusing drinking buddy.

On Fox & Friends Sunday, Dr. Ablow, the resident psych. suggested Biden should be seen by a doctor for possible demensia. I can see where that might be possible for Obama's "assasination insurance" VP selection.

I've never known anyone from Delaware. Does everyone there act like that? Just wondering.

Biden staged on a 90 minute Bonzo on Bennies public psychotic episode, doing everything except climbing up on the debate table, dropping his drawers and mooning the audience.

Right now we are focused Biden's shameless buffoonery in the VP debate, but his place in the history books will be the despicable spectacle of the Vice President of the United States gleefully telling the President, "This is a big F**king deal!" live, coast-to-coast on television. Obama's grinning agreement was just as revealing.

I'm sure Ryan knew that Joe would be Joe - a man whose mind is failing him in his later years. Some dementia patients have been known to strip off their clothes and streak through their nursing homes. Paul and the American people are lucky Joe isn't that far gone - yet.

I am amazed at the number of WOMEN who were offended by Biden's clownishness. I can't imagine how his idiotic performance did Obama any good at all. What they might have gained by energizing their base who would have voted for zero anyway, they must have lost many more votes among women, independents, moderates and Obama leaners.

Overall, a net loss for zero and a permanent picture in the nation's mind of the babbling fool that was a heartbeat from the presidency for four years.

Let the Vice President know his antics would have been appropriate in …… a barroom argument but not in a national debate! He made himself, the democrats and the government look like fools. One can be forceful without being rude, one can get his points across without hogging the platform. He look like the buffoon that people claim that he is. Any thinking person could see right through his demeanor and know what he was trying to bully Rep. Ryan but he came over as a bullying joker. And where did he get his facts? He was telling the nation that the Intelligence Community didn’t have the right facts and the State Department didn’t share their information with the White House. If that is true, then who is in charge? Is there a president in the house? And he did vote for the two "credit card wars". And why is the Catholic Church suing the government over Obamacare if there is no force abortion in it? Just who is the liar? Shame on him! He may have energize his beer drinking buddies, but he alienate the American people against himself and his party

Biden resembled Fire Marshall Bill from In Living Color.
They have the same rictus grin.
In the debate distressed Biden did something he does often.
He spoke about his parents in the present tense.

Biden " My friend recently in a speech in Washington
said "30 percent of the American people are takers."
These people are my mom and dad .."

Biden is 70 years old.
He has had two craniotomies for aneurysms.
Biden's parents have been dead for years and yet, he often speaks about them in public
as if they are not.
Articles are being increasingly written by physicians that his medical history
make Biden at an increased risk for stroke or
that his blatant lies and distortions
may indicate he is experiencing
mini strokes or TIAs - transient ischemic attacks .
Cheney's cardiac history was always a topic for the media.
While Biden's neurological history is always hidden.

Excellent points, #61. I caught his reference to his parents in the debate as well. I thought he was just trying to b.s. viewers into believing he wasn't that old, but it's also possible that he has trouble remembering his parents are dead. I don't understand at all why "Joe being Joe" isn't a reason for him to retire from public service, or at least serve in a position where our nation's fate doesn't hang in the balance.

It's long been said in DC that if you value your life, don't get between Joe Biden and a tv camera.

#5, I too saw that, but amazingly it isn't Trump's first defense of Biden. He defended him last week on another show (perhaps it was Greta Van Susteren) and I was surprised then.

#40, I, too, expected Biden to bring up his late wife and daughter, to gain sympathy.

Biden also lied about the Iraq and Afghanistan wars--he did vote for them, but said he was there, and didn't. Mark Levin tells a story of how Biden humiliated a Reagan appointee to the State Department in a Senate confirmation hearing, then told the man not to be offended, it was just business.

Nothing he does surprises me, because he also was shown to be a plagiarist. He is a man of little character or integrity.

"I am amazed at the number of WOMEN who were offended by Biden's clownishness."

I'm not. We get talked to like that a lot, women do, and it's irritating. Way to make Ryan look sympathetic, champ.

It's standard Communist Ops to wildly recklessly, openly, crudely discredit and DISMISSS non Communists. It was the case in 1950's Hollywood, when the Communists came dangerously close to controlling the movie industry. If you were IN, you got work, if you were not IN, you didn't get work. That'a why numorous hack writers joined the ACP: to get work, and take on a new sense of unearned importance. Communism's hold on Hollywood is as strong now as ever: no films on Communism EVER produced. Think about it. Silence reigns. Movie goers are not permitted to know the terrors of Stalinist Soviet Gulag enslavement, famine and mass murder. Easy to imagine that Biden is one of THEM.

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Cost of Treatment May Influence Doctors

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

CBO shows it’s Paul Ryan 4,

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

For Obamacare, What Counts As Success?

Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 4:23:43 AM     Post Reply
Ezra Klein, in his new capacity as one of the impresarios behind Vox, has written a pair of attention-grabbing posts — here, and then here — defending the proposition that Obamacare has, in some sense, “won,” and that conservatives who can’t come to terms with that victory can’t come to terms with reality itself. Reading them, it struck me that this argument would benefit from laying down some specific markers for the near future, because Klein seems to move back and forth between two definitions of success. At times, as when he writes that Obamacare “has won its survival” and

It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

Jews have reportedly been told to ´register´ with pro-Russian forces in the east Ukrainian city of Donetsk. They were also told they would need to provide a list of property they own as well as being ordered to pay a fee or face the threat of deportation. U.S. officials in Washington say leaflets bearing the chilling order have recently appeared in the city amid pro and anti-Russian protests as tensions rise in the area. It comes after Jews leaving a synagogue in the city of Donetsk were reportedly told they had to ´register´ with Ukranians trying to make the city part of Russia.United

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day."

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
