Biden Talks Tough (says Bush is "Brain Dead")
The Caucus at NYTimes via Drudge Report ^ | July 5, 2007 | Adam Nagourney

Posted on 07/05/2007 5:11:50 PM PDT by RDTF

DES MOINES — Joseph Biden, the Delaware Democrat running for president, is a man of strong opinions. During a campaign event in a Des Moines backyard today, Mr. Biden had some choice words for President Bush and two of the Republicans running for the White House.

“This guy is brain dead,” Mr. Biden said to surprised applause and laughter from the crowd. “I know I’ll be quoted, I’ll be killed for that.”

“This is a guy who is on the balls of his heels, here’s a guy who is lower off in the polls than any president in modern history and he goes ahead and he does something that just flies in the face of the sensibilities of the American people.”

A few minutes later, Mr. Biden turned his sights on Rudolph W. Giuliani, the former mayor of New York, and a Republican running for president. “I can hardly wait to debate Rudy Giuliani if he is their nominee,” he said. “Because I will eat his lunch. The next time I hear a Republican talk about us being tough on terror – give me a break!”

Finally, Mr. Biden’s target was Mitt Romney, the Massachusetts Republican running for president. “I found Romney’s statements yesterday profound – crazy — when he talked about going to war with Iran,” he said. “Why are we talking about going to war with Iran?”

Biden a legend in his own mind, and a dirty mind at that.

On the contrary, Mr. Senator. You would get killed (figuratively) were you to say anything that required moral courage. So you're perfectly safe.

...here’s a guy who is lower off in the polls than any president in modern history...

...which is some 20 points higher than Congress's ratings. Right, Joe?

I f Bush is brain dead and can get elected President twice being brain dead, then what does that make Joe Biden.

Joe Biden can not compete with the brain dead.

Joe must be off his meds...... Have Rudy’s lunch in a debate? While I’m not a Rudy-maniac, he was a federal prosecutor and trial lawyer and I’m sure he could out-debate the gas-bag Biden while half asleep.

Biden is a class A hypocritical know nothing.
He loves the sound of his own voice, spouting words that mean nothing.

Watch his smiling face with his arm behind his back,,,

If I recall, Biden had brain surgery a few years back. I’ve always wondered how much they hacked out.

Biden talking is kind of those typewriting monkeys. Eventually anything and everything will come out of his mouth. (Excepting common sense.)

So he’s suggesting that we should starve President Bush to death over the period of a couple weeks? It’s what the Left championed for Terri Schivo.

Or does “brain dead” and “retard” mean something else to liberals like “nazi” does?

Joe Biden can not compete with the brain dead.

Not even with the support of dead voters.

Ya know something. If it were true, Biden should be charged with treason for pointing it out.

People can search my posts and discover that I'm not a great fan of more than a few of the things President Bush has done, but I certainly do not think he is a man of low intelligence. Suggesting that he his certainly gives aid and comfort to our enemies while we are at war.

The Left’s comments might be more palatable in our atmosphere of “free speech” if they ever even approached saying these things about Saddam Hussein, Yassar Arafat, Putin, Osama, Al Qaeda #2,3,4,et al...

They chief enemy is the rank and file of the GOP. They put party before country every time.

Well if he was brain dead he would be on life support and would not be capable of acting as President of the United States. So he is obviously incorrect.

What will they say next to get noticed?

Joseph Biden, the Delaware Democrat running for president, is a man of strong opinions.

Dubya brain dead? Could be ... but coming from Biden Mr. Plagiarizer himself ... that's just a tad rich.

read the story
When this reference is used, it's usually transferring weight to the "balls of his feet", readying a swift karate kick or some such...
There are no "balls on the heels."
