Posted on 03/22/2009 9:56:58 AM PDT by kristinn
Vice President Joe Biden told a joke about Barack Obama's birth certificate at the Gridiron dinner in Washington, D.C. last night.
The joke was reported by Mike Allen at Politico in his article about Biden's intentionally funny speech (as opposed to his usual foot in mouth routine.):
"You know, I never realized just how much power Dick Cheney had until my first day on the job. I walked into my office, and you know how the outgoing president always leaves the incoming president a note in his desk? I opened my drawer and Dick Cheney had left me Barack Obamas birth certificate."
Numerous court cases have been filed demanding documentation by Obama that he meets the Constitution's requirement that a president be a natural born citizen. Obama has fought those lawsuits instead of producing the requested documentation. His campaign produced a document last summer it claimed proved he was a natural born citizen.
I can't wait for the day people like you eat crow in this issue.
Of course you'll probably disappear a not have the guts to face the scorn.
The search for the truth can never be a waste of time. You either believe in the constitution and the truth or you don’t.
And the following from the Gov. of CA
By 9:30 Schwarzenegger is at the podium, resurrecting the crowd with his speech. “You did such lovely work for [Obama],” he tells the media elite. “You put your lives on hold to put him in the White House. Now you get all dressed up, the champagne’s on ice, and you find out he’s just not that into you.”
ahem, excuse me, I must have overslept and missed the news. Pray tell me, when exactly did obama hang on a cross? I'm still waiting for him to turn water into wine and feed the masses with a coupla fish and loaves of bread.
I just can't picture obama in a bunny suit.
The opposition really doesnt have to do anything this administration is doing it all by itself lol
You obviously have never met the man or listened to him. He is more than just an idiot; he is very much an ideologue as 0bambi.
Having lived in his personal fiefdom for most of my life, I can say without reservation that Biden is the “devil you don’t know”.
LOl! Keep going Biden!
Coulda seen THAT one comin'.
You suppose he will do the honorable thing and resign rather than be forced out of office?
If he ever is in that position, that is.
Thanks for the ping, LucyT.
Prevent riots? Bo will have that covered with his civilian security force. Now, doesn’t that make you feel better?
If the heat gets too hot I could see the democrats giving him an offer he can’t refuse.
No, but that's not what you birthers are doing. You're on a wild goose chase, which is always a waste of time. Have fun.
Thanx for explaining to me what I’m doing. I have an IQ of 65, I’m 4 years old, and I had no clue how much I was wasting my time until you came along and showed me the way, the truth, and the light.
What I DO find hilarious is that he actually told it. The Messiah can't possibly be amused. So, therefore, I'm ROFLMAO.
Yeah, I know, of Orly’s case was missing for awhile on the SCOTUS docket as it missing from their online website, and the reported suspicious activity by Bickell.
Whats so funny about this is that Biden has always been prophetically right, he is a Sagittarian, so am I, we do make a lot of gaffes but we also find it pretty hard to lie and though I cannot speak about others I do have an intuition thats usually right on all the time.
I can honestly say that regardless what people say of Biden he could do no worse than Obama, he has been watching America slowly build up its anger against Obama, Biden if called upon I think would be a satisfactory president, lets give him some support.
I don't think he meant it to be a funny "ha ha" joke. I do believe biden is being passive/aggressive against barry.
Biden made another joke, something about Easter and how barry couldn't be there....biden said something about barry thinking Easter was "all about him".
No Way. LOL.
Did the birth certificate that Cheney left indicate that Obama was born in Kenya? (lol)
Seriously, when someone hides something, they have something to hide. The only evidence out is that Obama was born in Kenya and is not a natural born American citizen which is a requirement to serve as President.
That graphic! Awesome! Too funny!
I think so, too.
It is a nightmare. “What fresh hell is this?” comes to mind. Der Fuhrer is not eligible, he is acting like a dictator, he’s ruining the country in countless ways, as you know. Can’t even keep track of all the crap he’s pulled already. What will it be like after 4 years of this? Truly frightening. I do have some hope (hopie changie) that by 2010 election time, the dems will be out on their behinds in good numbers. Then we’ll have the weak GOP at an advantage of some kind. Not much better, but still better than the dems in control. They are going totally bonkers with their power grab. Unbelievable. The stupid GOP had years and years in power and they never used their power to help the country. They just keep playing games, raking in money, going to Washington elite parties, palling around with the enemy(liberals).
I again wrote to the RNC yesterday and gave them a wake up call, outing the GOP senators who voted in favor of the latest omnibus pork bill(Cochran,Wicker,Bond,Shelby,Specter,Murkowski,Alexander and Snowe). Saying I do not want any RNC money to go to those traitors. Told the RNC to wake up while there is still some of our country to save in the next elections....there’s my rant. Rant away as needed, it is good for you. Cheers!

Watch 60Minutes, due to come on now, basketball is over.
Kroft to Obama;
You’re sitting here. And you’re you are laughing. You are laughing about some of these problems. Are people going to look at this and say, I mean, he’s sitting there just making jokes about money How do you deal with I mean: explain. . . Kroft asks at one point.
Are you punch-drunk? Kroft says.
No, no. There’s gotta be a little gallows humor to get you through the day, Obama says, with a laugh.
Biden must actually be getting tired of being Vice President to a very junior inexperienced politician.
Watching it now
Good, I have been too. Seeing the “swing set” now.
[That graphic! Awesome! Too funny!]
Thanks so much. Sometimes I spend a terrific amount of time on silly little ditties like that. Glad it gave you a laugh.
haha.. woah. :|
I fear for Steven Kroft...he will be sent to the Cramer School of Re-Education.
One does not give Dear Leader a quotable question.
I watched Obama’s face since I knew it would be said and I didn't see any change in his expression. He didn't get flustered and continued calmly. He is scary.
Biden was making some flubs against Obama during the campaign and it surprised me. Now he did again at the Gridiron Dinner!!
I don’t meAn to sound suspicious but that is too weird but it could be true I am sure more of that occurs than we think
Ain’t that the truth
When Rahm Emmanuel ‘splains it to him...he’ll get mighty p’od.
First black president impeached ain’t gonna happenp
[When Rahm Emmanuel splains it to him...hell get mighty pod.]
Lol, you’re right! He’s too dense to understand an insult.
I would certainly take no offense; I’ve had many “non-Marines” and upstanding Americans offer me a “Semper Fi” from time to time.
You may know that US Marines are “Always Faithful” to God, Country and Corps.
I would suspect that you are faithful to the first two parts of that creed as you probably would not be visiting “Freeperland.”
You are the instruments that God is gonna use to bring about universal change, and that is why Barack has captured the youth. And he has involved young people in a political process that they didnt care anything about. Thats a sign. When the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear, and the Messiah is absolutely speaking.
I sorta recall that, but I am suprised that he would be in touch w/Calypso Louie...wasnt Farakhan thrown under the bus alonnnng time ago? I thought due to Emmanuel’s influence...Rahmmy is Jewish...and well, Louis has ‘issues’ there.
No, I heard that too, on the radio broadcast of the inauguration. It confused me. I just assumed it was a mistake on the part of the justice.
You served! That’s all that matters.
