Somebody Wants You to Help Buy a Trans Am for Joe Biden
The Truth About Cars ^ | 10/12/2012 | Jack Baruth

Posted on 10/12/2012 4:47:28 PM PDT by nascarnation

Vice President Joe Biden’s net worth has been estimated to be as low as a quarter-million dollars — chump change by the standards of Mr. Obama and Mr. Romney — but surely that’s enough money in the bank to pick up a decent Trans Am, right?

According to these guys, no. They want you to buy a Poncho for the Veep, and so far they’re raised about $800 of the $25,000 they think it will take. Why? Well, here’s their case:

Joe Biden has calmly and quietly been an incredible Vice President. He was one of the first politicians to publicly embrace gay marriage and may have been personally responsible for President Obama coming out in favor of gay marriage and the subsequent change in the Democratic Party’s platform. He is also a stunningly intelligent politician who understands the nuance of foreign and domestic policy.

No an IROC is more appropriate, given what the acronym stood for on the Massachuetts North Shore when they were the rage. The “I” can apply to him as well....

$230,700 plus benefits and a maximum of 2 affairs with interns. I don't know if hair plugs are covered by the benefits.

Oh what the heck, if they raise the money I think we should chip in for lessons from the Edward Kennedy Institute of Driving.

Horse crap. Doesn't Biden own a home with a guest house, where he was charging the secret service like $20k a month rent to house them?

Disco Uncle Joe.

*********************

"In 1946, the Soviet Union ordered twenty Little Joe Electric locomotives from the General Electric Company. The locomotives got their nickname “Little Joe” after Joseph Stalin."

"In October 1948, the US Department of State banned strategic shipments to the Soviet Union, and the order was cancelled."

"The other railroad to purchase the remaining locomotives was the Milwaukee Road. Twelve of these locomotives were shipped on flat cars and modified from the 5’ gauge to the standard 4’ 8-1/2” gauge."

Considering his current job he makes about $300K per year with most expenses covered and his prior job was $175K, this shows he absolutely sucks with money.

He’s too old to grow a mullet, but certainly has the personality to wear one these days.

Use some of the $2200 he is getting every month for four years from renting his guest house to the Secret Service men who protect him and his family.

$105,600.

And here is a little info on the ‘commoner’ Joe y’all might be interested in. Just sickening.

They aren’t fighting to stay in office to better America, they are fighting to stay in office for the perks.

Immediately thought it was because every single Trans Am driver I have ever encountered on the road was a gaping a**hole.

He could go for a bummet (bald mullet).

In the past 3&3/4 years how many times has Biden fullfilled his first job and presided in the Senate?

His son was paid a million-plus a year to lobby him, so there may be more than meets the eye.

It’s going to be auctioned off, with the proceeds going to the Biden Breast Health Initiative, Doctors Without Borders, the Wounded Warrior Project and GLAAD.

Not buying it for a second. How much money is hidden away in various family trusts to keep it away from the IRS?

Two of them went to the Ohio interurban NOT&L line for freight.

Only Pennsy’s GFG-1 and the Great Northern’s Bi-Polars were better electric locomotives.

Of course not. In real life, Ryan and Biden have a meaningful 'bromance'. The debate was just for show. Just like professional wrestlers who battle in the ring like enemies, but actually hang out together, holding hands and shopping at the mall when the cameras are not around.
