Biden Admits "Yes We Do" Want to Raise Taxes by a Trillion Dollars

October 4, 2012 at 4:26 pm (2012 Election, Business, Economy, Jobs, Joe Biden, Tax Hike, Taxes, Trillion Dollar)

Anybody else looking forward to the vice-presidential debates as much as I am?

Biden is simply the gift that keeps on giving…

I’m sure businesses will be chomping at the bit to start hiring knowing that a trillion dollar tax hike is in the works.

Joe Biden Stumbles Onto the Truth: ‘Middle Class Has Been Buried the Last Four Years’

October 3, 2012 at 9:00 am (Economy, Jobs, Joe Biden, Last Four Years, Middle Class, Mitt Romney, President Obama, Taxes)

This is going to pose a significant challenge for Team Obama heading into a possible second term.  They’ve been programmed and conditioned to blame everything that ails our country on the previous administration, but doing so in a second term would actually mean taking credit for their failures.

And the cracks have already started showing, with Joe Biden saying this yesterday:

It didn’t take long for Mitt Romney to agree that yes, the Middle Class has been buried under Obama:
And here is your proof that, yes, Joe Biden was actually right about something…
Vice President Biden Said The “Middle Class … Has Been Buried In The Last Four Years.” BIDEN: “This is deadly earnest. How they can justify, how they can justify, raising taxes on the middle class that has been buried in the last four years.”(Vice President Joe Biden, Remarks, Charlotte, NC, 10/2/12)
·         Buried Under More And More Debt: Since President Obama took office, the national debt has surpassed $16 trillion – an increase of $5.4 trillion. (U.S. Treasury Department, Accessed 10/2/12)
·         Buried Under Falling Incomes: “Median household incomes have fallen 8.2 percent since President Obama took office and continue to drop despite the official end of the  recession, a new study shows. Data compiled by Sentier Research found that since the economic recovery technically began in June 2009, median household income has dropped 5.7 percent.”(“Household Income Down 8.2 Percent Since Obama Took Office, Study Shows,” Fox News, 9/26/12)
·         Buried Under High Unemployment: More than 23 million Americans are unemployed, underemployed, or have stopped looking for work. (Bureau Of Labor Statistics, www.bls.gov, 10/2/12)
·         Buried Under Rising Gas Prices: Under President Obama, gas prices have more than doubled from $1.85 per gallon to $3.80 per gallon. (U.S. Energy Information Agency, 10/2/12)
What Would Four More Years Of President Obama Mean For The Middle Class? More Debt And Higher Taxes:
AEI Has Calculated That The Annual Cost Of President Obama’s Current And Looming Debt Burden Amounts To $4,000 Per Year In Higher Taxes On The Middle Class. “In a new paper, AEI’s Matt Jensen looks at the real annual cost of servicing the debt for households at various levels of income — including a potentially higher tax burden. As the table below illustrates, a household making between $100,000 and $200,000 a year could find its tax liability higher by roughly $2,400 every year. Over ten years, that works out to $24,000. And when you add in the debt already accrued the past four years under President Obama (the second table), that’s another $1,600 a year. So now we are now talking about $4,000 a year, $40,000 over ten years.” (James Pethokoukis, “Study: Obama’s Big Budget Deficits Could Mean A $4,000 A Year Middle-Class Tax Hike,” American Enterprise Institute, 10/2/12)

Weekend Recess: Jill Biden Kills the Crowd With Accidental Penis Joke

September 22, 2012 at 10:03 am (Big Stick, Elections 2012, Jill Biden, Jill Biden Joe Biden, Jill Biden Penis Joke, Joe Biden, Penis Joke, President Obama, Second Lady, Vice President Joe Biden, Video, Weekend Recess)

It was just a short while ago that vice-President Joe Biden was drawing laughter from a crowd for discussing the President’s “big stick“.

Now, clearly excited about the upcoming erec … er … election, Jill Biden is out on the campaign trail discussing her husband’s own ‘big stick‘, complete with visual aid.

Second Lady of the United States Jill Biden inadvertently made a penis joke during a campaign event in New Hampshire Friday.

“I’ve seen Joe up close,” Biden said while making a wide motion with her hands.

Biden giggled when the crowd reacted to her statement with laughs, cheers and cat calls.

“It’s in my remarks, really,” Biden said before continuing her speech.

It gets better.
She really emphasizes the phrase ‘big, strong heart’ while making the same wide-armed motion she made earlier, all through continued laughter.  
Then there’s the real money shot…
Biden stated, “I’ve heard the urgency in his voice when he comes … and talks about people he’s met.”  
Listen to the speech, she clearly pauses after the word ‘comes’, and good ol’ Joe starts laughing and shaking his head after that one.
Pretty funny stuff from Mrs. Biden.

Smartest President Ever: Three Words – "Made in the USA"

September 10, 2012 at 11:00 am (Job, Jobs, Joe Biden, Made in America, Made in the USA, President Obama, Three Letter Word, Three Proud Words, Three Words)

When he’s not travelling the 57 states or spelling out the word ‘OIHI’, the President is busy with his pocket calculator, desperately trying to count out words in a sentence.

Via the Blaze:

Like every president, Barack Obama has his generally-accepted strengths and weaknesses.

His speech-giving ability is, without a doubt, one of his greatest assets, but in Florida over the weekend the man made a mistake almost identical to one made earlier by Vice President Joe Biden.

Speaking to a roaring crowd, the president said American manufacturers are making products that we can sell around the world, stamped with “three proud words.”

What are they?  According to Obama, the “three” words are: “Made in the USA.”

It’s fairly obvious that Obama was trying to go with ‘Made in America’.  Again however I ask, is this something that the media would brush off had it been Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney, or Sarah Palin?  Of course not, it would be used as evidence that the Republican candidate is a dolt who is unfit to lead.

Watch the video…

And here of course is the famous Joe Biden clip being referred to above.  J-O-B-S…

Photo: Biden Gets Friendly With a Biker Chick In His Lap, Biker Guys Not Amused

September 10, 2012 at 7:00 am (Biker Babe, Biker Chick, Bikers, Cruisers Diner, Joe Biden, Ohio, Vice President)

Always interesting to see the vice-president of the United States canoodling with biker babes.  But it’s the look coming from her two male friends on either side that makes this photo so priceless.

Via the Hill:

Vice President Joe Biden got caught in a stunning photo with a female biker sitting on his lap.

The Associated Press snapped the shot at Cruisers Diner in Seaman, Ohio on Sunday.

A White House pool report says the bikers may be part of a group called the Shaddowmen.” No details were available on their real names or what discussion led to the lap incident.

Some observers were quick to joke that Biden is starting to resemble the working-class parody Biden seen in The Onion.

Earlier in the diner visit, Biden made banter with biker Jeff Cook,

“Can I borrow one of your bikes? They don’t let me ride anymore.”

“Probably not,” Cook said. 

“Probably not,” the Veep responded, according to the pool report.

Joe Biden’s Secret Service U-Haul Stolen in Detroit

September 3, 2012 at 11:06 am (Crime, Detroit, Government Motors, Joe Biden, Stolen, Thief, U-Haul, Vice President)

Vice-president Joe Biden is in Detroit today for a big labor rally, and will no doubt be touting the administration’s role in bailing out Government Motors.  One phrase that is likely to be heard – “Detroit is back”.

However, one thing that isn’t back in Detroit is the vice-president’s u-haul truck carrying his Secret Service equipment.  Where did it go, you say?  It was lifted from a hotel parking lot last night.

Via Click on Detroit (h/t Gateway Pundit):

A U-Haul being used by the secret service for Vice President Joe Biden’s visit to the Labor Day Rally in Detroit on Monday was stolen out of a hotel parking lot Sunday morning.

The U-Haul was stolen form the Holiday Inn parking lot in downtown Detroit on Washington Boulevard.

The hotel has declined to comment.

The U-haul is 14-feet high, has an Arkansas backdrop on the side of the truck and has Arizona plates. The plate number is: AD09406.

No word on whether or not the administration will pardon the thief by saying, “You didn’t steal that”.

Charlie Rangel on Biden’s "Chains" Comment: "You Bet Your Ass He Was" Talking About Slavery

August 24, 2012 at 12:18 pm (Back in Chains, Charlie Rangel, Joe Biden, New York, Racism, Slavery, Stupid, Virginia)

Looks like Joe Biden’s remarks to a predominantly black crowd in Virginia that the Romney/Ryan ticket wants to put “y’all back in chains” has another critic – Democrat Charlie Rangel.

Rangel attacked the racial tone of the comment, the vernacular Biden chose, and declared the comments were indeed about slavery. 

Rangel also concluded, “You bet your ass it was stupid”.

This is a direct counter to the claims Biden and Obama have made since the remarks raised eyebrows a couple of weeks ago.

Via Politicker:

After Vice President Joe Biden infamously told an audience that Mitt Romney is “going to unchain Wall Street,” and concluded they are “going to put y’all back in chains,” Mr. Romney’s campaign cried foul. This was an obvious and unfair allusion to slavery, Mr. Romney’s surrogates argued.

Well, count veteran Congressman Charlie Rangel among Mr. Biden’s critics on the Democratic side of the aisle.

“The Vice President said he’s going to put “y’all in chains,” Mr. Rangel told The Perez Notes in a recent free-wheeling interview. “Was he talking about slavery? You bet your ass he was. Was he using the vernacular? Yes, he was. Did he think it was cute? Yes, he did. Was it something stupid to say? You bet your life it was stupid.”

“It was something if a black had said it, we would have been laughing, because we would know deep down they may be beating the hell out of us, but they ain’t thinking about putting us into any chains,” he added.

Will pressure from his own side prompt an apology from the vice-president?

Watch the video below (about 3:00 in)…

New Ad Highlights Joe Biden’s Incompetence, Urges Him to "Please Keep Running"

August 17, 2012 at 11:05 am (2012 Election, American Crossroads, Gaffe, Joe Being Joe, Joe Biden, President Obama, Run Joe Run, Vice President)

Heh…

American Crossroads today released a new web video, “Run, Joe. Run” – urging Vice President Joseph Biden to stay in the 2012 race for Vice President, despite growing calls for President Obama to drop him from the ticket.

The video highlights…

  • Biden’s recent work to improve race relations in the United States;
  • Biden’s deeply held belief in fiscal “sanity”;
  • Biden’s “support” for small businesses;
  • Biden’s general competence and capability.

Best, the video does all of this using Mr. Biden’s own thoughtful words!

The debates between this man, who is a heartbeat from the Presidency (a scenario Osama Bin-Laden once openly hoped for) and Paul Ryan should be interesting to say the least.

Enjoy…

Video: White House Press Secretary Reduced to Explaining That Obama Has Eaten Dogs

August 16, 2012 at 2:01 pm (Barack Obama, Bro, Devo, Dogs, Don't Roof Rack Me, Eats Dogs, Indonesia, Jake Tapper, Jay Carney, Joe Biden, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, President Obama, Tasty Dogs)

ABC’s White House correspondent Jake Tapper has reported that the love affair between the mainstream press and the President may be over – not for a lack of effort on the media’s part.

President Obama hasn’t formally taken questions from the White House press corps in more than two months, while on the campaign trail in Iowa yesterday he made time for reporters from People Magazine and Entertainment Tonight.

His last news conference was at the G20 in June, when he answered six questions from three reporters on the European debt crisis, the conflict in Syria, and the notion of politics stopping at the water’s edge.

The White House press corps has not formally been given the opportunity to ask questions of the president on U.S. soil since his appearance in the Briefing Room on June 8 (when he said “the private sector is doing fine.“)

His last formal White House news conference was on March 6.

So why has the President avoided the very people who ushered him into the White House in 2008?  Perhaps he is worried that a press conference would involve questions on the sputtering economy, or how he has raided Medicare, or the rising troop death toll in Afghanistan?  And with no control, the President instead propogates his rock star image by entertaining the tabloid journalists from People or Entertainment tonight.

Or perhaps it’s just depression. 

It’s depressing to know that Mitt Romney has chosen an economic and budgetary wizard in Paul Ryan, and that this pick is lifting the Republicans in key swing states.

Or maybe it’s depressing to know that you might have to defend the man who serves as the counterpunch to Ryan – Joe Biden, a man who doesn’t know what state or century he is in.

Or maybe it’s this:  Your messaging is so far off course right now that Press Secretary Jay Carney had to resort to discussing the notion that the President has indeed eaten dogs…

Where is Devo on this topic?  I wonder if Seamus would rather be roof racked, bro, or sauteed.

The full comment is here:

Jay Carney on President Obama cracking a joke about dogs on top of cars: “I think he made one allusion in three different speeches that was a joke. Just like the Romney campaign campaign and others have joked about the fact that in the president’s memoir he talked about, as a boy, eating dog meat in Indonesia because that is something that is done there. I think a little levity is a little different from the kind of ridiculous charges that are being made here.

Yesterday, Biden Forgets What State He’s In – Today, Biden Forgets What Century He’s In

August 15, 2012 at 4:09 pm (20th Century, 21st Century, Automobile Manufacturing, Biden Being Biden, Joe Biden, North Carolina, Virginia, Weekly Standard)

Yesterday, good ol’ Joe Biden was on a roll, telling a predominantly African-American crowd that the Republicans want to put them “in chains”, and then telling the city of Danville, Virginia that they could lead the Democrats to victory in North Carolina.

It seems Uncle Joe is the gift that just keeps on giving.

Via the Weekly Standard:

In a speech today in Virginia, Vice President Joe Biden seemed to forget we’re in the 21st century.  ‘Folks, where’s it written we cannot lead the world in the 20th century in making automobiles?,” said Biden.

The Romney campaign responded to the gaffe over at the Standard:

UPDATE: Ryan Williams, a spokesman for the Romney campaign, responds: “Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will ensure America leads the world in the 21st century by strengthening middle-class families and creating jobs. President Obama and Vice President Biden have taken our nation backward with failed policies that have resulted in higher unemployment, more debt, and a weaker economy. A campaign based on rage and divisiveness can’t hide the president’s failed record.”

To be fair, the Obama administration has set us back quite a bit, but a full 100 years?
