Oh, That Joe! (No. 14 in a Series) - Biden Says Obama Won't Take His Beretta
abcnews.com ^ | September 20, 2008 | Jake Tapper

Posted on 09/20/2008 2:35:19 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Sen. Barack Obama better not mess with his running mate Joe Biden's guns...or else.

In an out-of-nowhere attempt to re-assure a southwestern Virginia labor crowd about gun owners' rights, Biden -- who regularly scores "F" ratings from the National Rifle Association -- warned Obama that if "he tries to fool with my Beretta, he’s got a problem."

The only Beretta that Joe Biden has any familiarity with is the one portrayed by Robert Blake.

Shut up Joe!

No, on the other hand, keep talkin' Joe! You're one of the GOP's best weapons in this election cycle!

Now how about reminding everyone about how you would be 'honored' to run for or against Senator John McCain? [actual quote]

Has the Secret Service been notified about Biden’s threat?

I wish Biden were running for president. It would be a laugh a minute.

I think Biden meant to say “barettes”, not Beretta.

Wish we could hear the clip.

Is there an authentic “backwoods” Delaware accent?

I realize Delaware is a bit on the small side...

Biden doesn’t hunt.. he uses his gun to shoot cans of beer and keep the Priests against baby killing off his compound.

When Mark Levin says that Plugs is the dumbest man in the U.S. Senate, he’s not kidding. :)

By the way, did this doof also have an eye job? Looks like he used Shatner’s plastic surgeon.

Wasn’t it last week or the week before that Bambi addressed this issue and said that he won’t take peoples guns because he doesn’t have the votes in congress? Not that he doesn’t want too, just can’t.

To be fair to Biden, he is right... Hussein doesn't seem to know his way around weaponry. It is best to keep him away from things he does not understand.

There isn’t a “backwoods” in Delaware. Just credit card companies, the Dupont Estate, and some gay beaches.

NRA targets Obama

September 10, 2008 08:06 PM

The National Rifle Association said today it will send a mailer to 4 million members warning that Barack Obama "would be the most anti-gun president in American history."

The mailer also tells members "Don't believe" Obama on the Second Amendment.

"NRA will not allow Barack Obama to revise history," Chris W. Cox, NRA's chief lobbyist, said in a statement. "He has supported bans on handguns and semi-automatic firearms, and he has voted to ban possession of many shotguns and rifles commonly used by hunters and sportsmen across America. And we will remind voters every single time he lies."

When the Supreme Court issued a landmark ruling in June upholding an individual right to bear arms and throwing out a handgun ordinance in Washington, D.C., Obama sought a middle ground. "I have always believed that the Second Amendment protects the right of individuals to bear arms, but I also identify with the need for crime-ravaged communities to save their children from the violence that plagues our streets through commonsense, effective safety measures," he said.

He needs to hold on to that Beretta. It will be a classic car in about three decades. I wonder if his Beretta has a moonroof/sunroof?

Joe’s lying. Doubt he owns a Beretta, and if he did he would just hand it over to the Obama blue-shirts nice and easy-like.

I think debate will be a draw -- with slight advantage Palin.

She'll win on directness, and likability, but Biden will win on knowledge.

Moderators will purposely phrase questions in such a way that arcane Senate knowledge will be part of it.

You know, I've been wondering the same thing. Either that or he's got too much (weird) make-up going on.

"“Obama can have my baguette when he pries it from my cold, dead hand with some brie and a chilled glass of Pouilly-Fuisse.” - Joe Biden"

Sorry Argus, I have to disagree. Biden wouldn't have class enough to know the words baguette and Pouilly-Fuisee. Even if he did, he couldn't pronounce them properly.

In response to a concern expressed by a coal miner in the crowd's question who asked Biden how he felt playing second fiddle to a black guy, Biden quickly quipped, "well, remember now, he IS half white!"

(OK, that part is just a joke.)

“Lefty rifle”

Yeah.

Did you notice the set trigger configuration. I have a set trigger on one of my rifles, and man it is sweet. Trips at about 1/2 lb, and improves my accuracy tremendously.

I was born about 20 miles from Castlewood. There are few areas of the nation where guns are more ingrained into everyday life.

Joe was no doubt trying to fast talk his way into the good graces of the people of SW Virginia who saw right through him I'm sure.

Good people there. Salt of the earth.
