Skip to comments.JOE BIDEN: ANOTHER SENATE EMBARRASSMENT
Posted on 10/07/2007 9:13:24 AM PDT by Vigilanteman
Senate Republicans have suffered a lot of embarrassment over the antics of Sen. Larry Craig, a pro-family politician who played footsy with another man in a bathroom. But the Democrats have their own embarrassments, and one of them is presidential candidate Senator Joseph Biden, their leading foreign policy "expert."
His logic was on display on NBC's Meet the Press program, where the long-time Delaware senator, who now chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, was asked by host Tim Russert about changing his position on setting a deadline for pulling U.S. troops out of Iraq. Two years ago he said that setting a deadline for withdrawal would "encourage our enemies to wait us out." Now he says the war must "end now." Biden replied, "Well, I have changed my mind, but I haven't changed my mind in any fundamental way."

Wonder who is going to make this his watershed moment, ala, "I actually voted for the $87B before I voted against it" verbal incontinence of John sKerry?
“That’s why we get to ride in the limo’s and you don’t” -Sen Joe Biden
At least those in maximum security are committed to a cause.......
LOL! Plus they've actually done something to earn their place there.
“Joe Biden since he is probably the most qualified candidate of any of the declared Democrats”
I agree which is scary as hell !!!
Joe Hairplugs is an idiot.
Too bad for Biden that Gore already has dibs on inventing the internet.
Biden’s as qualified to be president as Stuart Smalley is to be senator.
The only thing I’ve ever observed of Biden which indicates some degree of decency was when during a filibuster, he offered to suspend debate without a change in who had the floor because Strom Thurmund had to get some rest. Most likely an act to get the absentee votes from nursing home directors for each dimentia resident, but still a decent gesture.
Shouldn’t he have said, “I made up my mind before I changed it?”
I don't think we should be mocking a man who did so much for hair science by being the first study participant to undergo a scrotal weave.
I am not a fan of Joe Biden’s politics, but I do remember seeing him during a number of senate hearings. He was easily the brightest person there. Pity he is democRAT.
Sorry, but Biden is dumber than a sack full of hammers.
Unfortunately, I live in Delaware and cursed to be represented in the Senate by the self-styled Duke of Delaware and the Macel Marceau of the Senate, Tom Carper. Aside from arrogance, pomposity and double talk, Biden has no qualities whatsoever. Carper does exactly what Biden does, making Delaware the only state represented by one human being and one mimic.
Don’t get me started on our lone representative. But what the heck, what do you expect from a state as unimportant as Delaware (or RI for that matter).
Why should the three counties of Delaware get two Senators and a congressman?
I'm afraid I will be sending the caveman back to his therapist.
And when Sen. Biden (credit due) attempted that kind gesture for Sen. Thurmond, Sen. Hillary Clinton LOUDLY voted against the recess, hoping that the ninety-nine year old Thurmond wouldn’t survive the all night session.
Hillary = pure EVIL!
That would only be true if he had a 100 watt bulb screwed into his head : )
Biden is as dumb as a door jam
There is no historical record among the new modern democrats. They reboot the record and start anew every 24 hours.
I hail from Delaware as well.
Your descriptions of our useless Senators had me rolling.
Especially the comment about Tom Carper, who I call “The Unknown Senator”. I am always calling his office and complaining “why does he say one thing and then always does whatever Biden does?”
Last week I reamed both them out over Rush Limbaugh—these two birdbrains both signed Harry Reid’s and Tom Harkin’s dumb letter. Told their staff that you’d think they would have more common sense to go along with this hatchet job.
I also educated their young staff members on the true “phony soldier”==Tom Harkin, who lied about his Vietnam service claiming to be an air combat veteran when he never even flew over Vietnam.
Marcel Marceau of the Senate—what a great description of Tom Carper! I should sent him a pair of white gloves and a black and white striped shirt!
Marcel Marceau of the Senatewhat a great description of Tom Carper! Need I point out that he now has company from Pennsylvania's own Bob Casey, Jr.?
DE calls itself “Constitution State” even though it was pro-Tory during the Revolution. People in DE really believe in Biden, and they usually vote liberal down the line. it should have never been severed from PA, I suppose.
I guess in fairness to DE people, Biden is a PA native. But maybe DE people would like to rejoin PA.
I think a better idea would be to GIVE Philadelphia to Delaware. PA would be a remarkably civil state without Philadelphia.
