Joe Biden: I wouldn't want 'a real job'
WorldNetDaily ^ | April 1, 2012 | Drew Zahn

Vice President Joe Biden, long known for making embarrassing verbal gaffes, echoed the cynical criticism many people levy against career politicians, stating he had stayed in the Senate for 36 years because he didn’t want to get “a real job.”

Biden was speaking to a Democratic fundraiser in Chicago Thursday night, when he turned to praise the work of Richard M. Daley, the city’s former mayor of over 20 years.

“I never had an interest in being a mayor, ’cause that’s a real job. You have to produce,” Biden said, according to a White House pool report. “That’s why I was able to be a senator for 36 years.”

Biden was elected to the Senate in 1972 directly from the county council of New Castle County in Delaware at the age of 29. He turned 30 – the minimum age to become a senator – less than two months before taking office. Biden then served continuously as Delaware’s senator until 2009, when he became Barack Obama’s vice president.

Byron York of the Washington Examiner notes that Biden’s remarks recalled criticism Sarah Palin, a former mayor, posited at the 2008 Republican National Convention against Barack Obama. Both had been charged with inexperience – Palin as a former small-town mayor with only a couple of years under her belt as Alaska’s governor, Obama as a former community organizer with only a couple years under his belt as a U.S. senator.

“I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a community organizer,” Palin said, “except that you have actual responsibilities.”(continued)

You have to hand it to liberals; At least they let the mentally challenged get involved in politics as well.

What kind of Job could Joe get?
He does not seem qualified to do ANYTHING.
I guess he could be the doofus in a stand up comedy pair....maybe Costello from Abbot and Costello.

Worthless, useless POS. Why do the people of Delaware keep sending that fool/idiot/buffoon back for so many 6yr terms? Are there that many lib-dems there? Don’t know; must be if they have done so. Answered my own question.

Biden is by far the most worthless, useless dumbest Vice President in history. The leftest state run media always made fun of Dan Quayle, but Quayle has always been way smarter than the clown buffoon Biden.

I remember when Biden was nominated, our local political reporter laughed, saying Biden was a gaffe machine. Having been intensely interested in politics for the past three decades, I was surprised to hear it, thanks to the LSM covering for him.

Nice to know that Joe “Plugs” Biden has never had a real job in his life. I doubt that he could qualify as a burger flipper at McDonald's or Burger King — too many moving parts for him.
