Biden Tells Sandy Victims ‘You’ve Got a Homeboy’ In the White House ‘Who Gets It’

If there is any silver-lining to the re-election of President Obama, it’s four more years of comedy hour from Uncle Joe.

While victims of Hurricane Sandy were probably hoping to get a professional politician who has a plan to restore their power, assess damage to their properties, and has a delicate manner about them with which to console them in their time of need.

Instead, they got Vice-President Joe Biden who said this…

“If you’re not an Easterner it’s hard to understand that the ocean to us is the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone Park and everything else combined. It is a gigantic part of not only our economy but who we are. It’s a gigantic part of the culture as well.

“And every time the rest of the country is in real trouble, New Jersey and Delaware and New York and Connecticut, et cetera, we respond, we respond. And it’s going to be a heavy lift. These are difficult times in terms of budgets but the president has made it clear that we are going to do everything we can to make sure that the Corps is fully funded, that FEMA has their needs and that all the programs that exist under the auspices of the federal government not only continue to exist but are funded so that we can make sure that this area of the country is fully fully fully restored.

“So as the president said when he was up here with the governor, we’re not going anywhere. We’re not going anywhere. And you’ve got a homeboy in the deal who gets it.”

Homeboy Joe.  Do legit homeboys use the word malarkey?  Ever?

Doug Powers writes:

Some think the “homeboy” Biden was referring to was Barack Obama, and others believe he was talking about himself. Either way, as usual, it was a cry for psychological help while the struggle continues for thousands and thousands of people.

State by State Numbers Show Obama in For a World of Hurt

February 1, 2012 at 8:51 pm (Approval, Connecticut, Electoral, Gallup, Maine, President Obama, Wyoming)

The first question the leaps to mind is, what level of air pollution is fogging up the heads of people in those states who actually saw an increase in the President’s approval rating?  Wyoming, Connecticut and Maine all saw an increase.  Three out of fifty states.  Or rather, 57 states.  Either way, what the hell is happening in Wyoming, Connecticut and Maine that people think things are just ducky?

From Gallup via the Washington Examiner:

Gallup released their annual state-by-state presidential approval numbers yesterday, and the results should have 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue very worried. If President Obama carries only those states where he had a net positive approval rating in 2011 (e.g. Michigan where he is up 48 percent to 44 percent), Obama would lose the 2012 election to the Republican nominee 323 electoral votes to 215.

Gallup adds:

Overall, Obama averaged 44% job approval in his third year in office, down from 47% in his second year. His approval rating declined from 2010 to 2011 in most states, with Wyoming, Connecticut, and Maine showing a marginal increase, and Massachusetts, Wisconsin, Minnesota, New Jersey, Arizona, West Virginia, Michigan, and Georgia showing declines of less than a full percentage point. The greatest declines were in Hawaii, South Dakota, Nebraska, and New Mexico.

And now for the really good news.  Drumroll please….
