Skip to comments.Biden Bested By Custard Shop Manager

American politics is, at heart, an exercise that calls upon politicians to be great at human interaction. In North Korea, Kim Jong-il can afford to be distant as his countrymen/victims worship him like a belligerent, maniacal deity (Ares?). However, we have always liked elected officials whom we would want to grab a beer with;
1) Reagan -- what a great guy to shoot the breeze with while downing a California pale ale.
2) Bush I -- maybe not, thus a one-termer.
3) Clinton -- bad person, but great beer buddy. You'd probably end up with a hangover in Mexico, and with twin freshman from SMU named Trixie and Pixie.
4) Bush II -- although a recovering alcoholic, I'll bet he'd be a great guy to grab a protein shake with.
5) Obama -- more of a Chardonnay guy, and he'd certainly stick you with the bill.
Then there is Vice President Biden. Although he has been in retail politics for decades, he seemed unprepared for the hilarious quip made by a custard shop manager when Biden asked how much he owed for a cone of the tasty frozen treat.
"What do I owe you, said Biden. The manager answered, Lower our taxes and well call it even. Biden jokingly called the manager a smart-ass, telling him, Why dont you say something nice?
Mr. Vice President, funny people willing to speak truth to power should be encouraged. The manager made a funny comment and you were rude. You are not our king and thus I would not want to grab the king of beer with you . . . . Budweiser....

Let’s be honest, shall we?
Obiden is a douchebag and needs to be removed from office.
Bush I would be ENORMOUSLY interesting to listen to. Think of the stories that guy could tell.
I really think Biden is a high achieving “special” person.
Biden is just too old to “cut the custard”...too dumb, too.
And I’d expect Reagan to have a taste for a dark ale or a porter- none of that hoppy-perfumey pale-ale.
Biden wasn’t joking. He is a prick. Eating FREE ice cream and calling the guy that gave it to him a smartass, what class.
I didn’t see it that way. it seemed to me that he was just cutting up, and the store owner knew it. he was laughing when Biden was saying those things.
If you watch the video, Biden was anything but “jokingly” after the comment was made. He ignored the manager and turned away in a snit.
Another “Stand up Chuck” moment in the history of VP Bite-Me
Nice to now that we have such classy people leading our government.
I’d take the ice cream back and show him the door.
“Biden jokingly called the manager a smart-ass”
Just how do you figure it was “jokingly”
Yeah, but he’d have to kill us afterward.
He’s “special” all right .. especially arrogant.
Biden believes most Americans are the “little people”; stupid and if they don’t support him, they’re a “smart-ass”.
But everybody seems to be missing the point. When dems make “smart-ass” comments to Americans, they’re ignored - but if a repub did that - it would be frontpage news for days.
Hmmmm ..?? Hasn’t anybody realized what’s going on ..?? If you’re a dem - you get a pass - no matter if you stain a dress or call citizens a “smart-ass”. But if you’re a repub .. you get “Dan-Quayled”.
It’s so obvious - I just can’t believe people still refuse to see it.
make no mistake about it, this is all by design.
But, this is Biden the foul mouth and quite the funny man.
So that means it’s time to take impeachment of BO off the table?
I'd have believed this.
I have given up on Illinois ever nominating a conservative. (let alone one ever winning) I view the Nevada senate race as a national election and have donated to Sharron Angle’s campaign in hope of changing congress and stopping this attack on my country.
Should we expect to see this shop owner trashed in the media now, a-la Joe the Plumber?
I would have bested Biden by countering that he was an f’n ass.
“So that means its time to take impeachment of BO off the table?”
Nope. Not at all.
I do think that we are on the verge of being in a position to remove, by force, those that are tearing this country apart.
Either we put the brakes on Stroker and his mob in November at the ballot box or we go to the next level, remains to be seen.
The bottom line is that these “folks” need to go. Period. End of story.
How about a Dublin Dr Pepper instead?
Biden = Inner Party
Custard Guy = Prole
Thats what its becoming. Biden scoffs that a prole should even suggest something that benefits the prole. They have to be reminded that WE own THEIR asses.
“If you watch the video, Biden was anything but jokingly” ...
Exactly. The store owner was gracious in laughing, but Biden wasn’t kidding. You can also tell by his body language that Biden had no intention of actually paying. He could have insisted by putting bills on the counter.
These arrogant dumbasses need their wings clipped big-time.
“It is better being a smart ass then a dumb ass Mr Vice President”
I thought it was illegal for politicians to accept gifts.
Watch the video. Biden has a few dollar bills in his hand that he's trying to give to the store manager.
Biden could be bested by just about anyone living in America with the possible exception of that county commissioner lady in Wisconsin.
The more often I read about this exchange between the businessman and the Veep, the more certain I am that Biden is the kind of guy who always has to have the last word. The best way for him to have handled this would have been with a chuckle and a handshake, but no, he had to call he guy a smart-ass.
Biden’s comment is exactly how liberals think about the rest of us. We are too dumb to know what’s good for us so the liberal elites must make the decisions for us. As Biden said before it is patriotic to pay more taxes to our benevolent government that wipes every tear and rights every wrong.
That isn't the big thing though. Him talking to the "peasant" in such a classless manner is.
You really need to read, and heed, my tag line! ;-)
