Biden's Day of Epic Failure
on the Campaign Trail

Townhall, by Katie Pavlich

Original Article

Posted By:Photoonist, 10/31/2012 9:11:41 PM

The circus called and said they're missing their clown. We found him! Vice President Joe Biden had quite a day today out on the campaign trail stumping for his boss President Obama. First in Sarasota, Florida Biden said, "I'm going to give you the whole load." I'm not going to explain what that means here, but lets just say it's a pretty disgusting thing to say in public, (Snip) Biden turned to the group of guys, then, according to the pool report, Biden asked one of them, “Are you Indian?” “American!” the man responded. “No, I mean first generation,” Biden

Comments:
Old Joe Biden has also managed to move Cleveland to Florida. Why not, since 0bama can lower the oceans? [end sarcasm] Get Biden out campaigning more! He's got to be worth one more point or two........ for Romney.

Remember Admiral Stockdale in the Vice Presidential debate (he ran with Perot) saying "Who am I, what am I doing here?" He meant it as a kind of joke on himself as someone no one outside the Navy ever heard of. Biden could use the same line but he would be serious.

The above is fairly well the whole article. Plus several videos where Biteme is on his "Indian" kick.

And he quotes the "local" Cleveland Plains Dealer.

LOL

I expect Obama to tell us BiteMe gave the orders for the CIA, SEALS, et al to "Stand Down".

We would be dumb enough to believe it.

It was an epic failure when this man became first in line to the Presidency of the United States should Obama be unfit or unable to be C-I-C. The other epic failure.... but we all know about that one.

Not to mention a den of Marxists who are the ones really running things in the background, under the evil ValJar. And a Harridan for a First Lady to boot. One could go on and on about this crazy regime.

There's Maxine Waters, Cymfia McKinney, Sheila Jackson-Lee, Jim Moran -- no matter how long the list, many contenders are overlooked. Instead of a single "Stupidest Politician," maybe we should follow the lead of the PGA, and set up a Hall of Fame that allows inducting of honorees still-active? No, "honorees" can't be right....

Sexual innudendo and profanity is unattractive in anyone, let alone the VPOTUS. Combine Biden's interminable gafforama with Obama's calling Romney a "bullsh***er" and this is some classy bunch.

But then, they do represent liberals everywhere; they can't get their points across without some form of coarse and crass bombast.

Joe Biden obviously has something medically wrong with him.
A healthy person does not exhibit this level of inappropriate behavior on a daily basis .
Not only does Biden say inappropriate things, but, he acts out in unacceptable physical ways towards women
on the campaign trail.
He always seems to be grabbing women or making comments of a sexual nature .
A fact the media conveniently ignores.
The same media that hammered Palin
and Quayle relentlessly for verbal slips.
Biden's medical history includes two craniotomies for ruptured aneurysms.
Another fact conveniently ignored by the same media
that hammered McCain
for his medical history.
Biden is second in line as POTUS and Commander in Chief.
Obama and Axelrod and Jarrett and the media are well aware of his odd behavior and
they still kept this ill man on the ticket.
It's always about their power and
not what's best for the country.

Scranton called and reported it is missing its Village Idiot.

DISCLAIMER: Biden left Scranton at the age of 9. Moved to Delaware where his father took a job as a car salesman. No kidding. The Scranton schtick is nothing more than that: schtick. Which sadly does not explain why so many of the denizens of Scranton claim him as one of their own. I call it the culture of mediocity. It is no wonder Scranton has been an official "depressed city" since the mid '80's. And equally corrupt.

A neurologist friend told me that the part of Biden's brain which was affected by the aneurism is the part which controls social filters, meaning that Biden no longer has a clue what is appropriate and what isn't. Makes perfect sense but it also makes you wonder what else is wrong with his brain.

IIRC, Biden has never won more than 8% of the vote in any primary when he was campaigning for president. Good luck in 2016, you creep.

Back in 2008 Plugs was running for the nomination against The Hildabeast and ØDumbø. They were close to get 50% each and Plugs and a few others were in the 1 to 2% range. He was picked by Caroline Kennedy to give the ticket gravitas because of his foreign policy expertise. I've always hated him from the Clarence Thomas hearings. He always gave you the impression in the end he would do the right thing. But he never did. He always voted straight party line. In 2016 he'll be 74 and unlikely to catch on with voters.

We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.

All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides.

A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.

Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama. In 2008, Obama won independents in the state by

Mitt Romney and President Obama each racked up early and expected victories Tuesday night in relatively safe territory, while some of the biggest battlegrounds that will decide the election remained too close to call. All the big swing states where polls have closed -- Florida, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia and North Carolina -- were too close to call, Fox News projects. (Snip) Obama will also win three of Maine's four electoral votes, Fox News projects. It is unclear where the state's fourth electoral vote will fall. The latest batch of poll closings, and results, has allowed Obama to take

As expected, the presidential race is tight in Ohio, where the polls just closed: President Obama is winning women 55 percent to 44 percent in the early CBS News exit poll, while Mitt Romney is leading 52 percent to 46 percent among men. Women made up 51 percent of the electorate, compared to 49 percent among women. Thirty-nine percent of voters so far identified themselves as Democrats, compared to 30 percent calling themselves Republican. Thirty-one percent identified as independent or something else, and Romney has a big edge among this group - 56 percent to 40 percent for Mr. Obama.

As expected, Republican candidate for President, Mitt Romney, won West Virginia’s five electoral votes in Tuesday’s General Election over President Barack Obama. National media outlets called the race in West Virginia shortly after polls closed at 7:30 p.m. President Obama’s fate in West Virginia has never been in question, as he garnered just 60 percent of the democratic vote in the May primary. The other 40 percent of that vote went to Texas federal inmate Keith Judd, who was placed on the ballot in West Virginia. President Obama has been hugely unpopular in the Mountain State since he first ran

Early exit polls show Election Day voters are slightly more Republican than in 2008 and broadly concerned about the state of the U.S. economy. Six in 10 voters said the economy is their top issue according to the poll, which was released by The Associated Press and conducted on behalf of a consortium of media companies. Less than a quarter of voters said their families were better off than four years ago — a point seized on by many Republicans as the results leaked out.

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich will step down following uproar over his apparent opposition to gay marriage. In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement. Last week, Eich attempted to dispel fears on whether he would support equality as the head

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile. It´s treating transportation as a utility, much like your water and sewer," said Larry Goode, with the Institute of Transportation Research and

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

At a press conference to push legislation to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) criticized industrialists David and Charles Koch, calling them “shadow billionaires” who use their wealth to “rig our political system.” Reid’s sharp comments come on a day when the Wall Street Journal published a commentary written by Charles Koch, in which he described the brothers’ decision to get involved in politics to preserve the individual freedom and free markets that he said are the pillars of the American republic. “These two men are a pair of shadow billionaires spending
