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.
“Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi in her speech, praised Joe Biden, calling him the ‘full package,’ that’s what she called him, that’s the actual term she used, she called him the ‘full package.’ Now he’s getting phone calls from Senator Larry Craig.” —Jay Leno
Wouldn’t it be REALLY funny if Cheney DID leave Biden a copy of the VAULT Birth Certificate???? Hed be telling Joe...”YOU can be President....NOW....just release it”!
Bambi’s ego won’t allow for him to sit there and be mocked, even if it is by friends.
It might have been funny if the birth certificate was found in the Rose Law Firm billing records that magically appeared in the White House a few years back.
God bless Joe Biden. Communism is far more easily swallowed by the masses if it is accompanied by a laugh track.
LOL if Biden really said that.
Stand up Chuck!
I think it’s hilarious too
They know, and are squelching everything they can, and mocking the rest.
They know its true, he is ineligible. Biden figures he’s gonna be POTUS, why else make a joke about it?
President Bidet and Vice President Hillary!
One heartbeat away...
Or two heart beats away...President (mentally retarded) Pelosi.
They know its true, he is ineligible. Biden figures hes gonna be POTUS, why else make a joke about it?
I've posted this on another thread.
I viewed the Inauguration on live TV (I think it was ABC or NBC, I don't remember). When VP Biden was sworn in first (as is the custom), after he took the oath (interesting how he squeezed his eyes shut when repeating "without any mental reservation of any kind"), Justice Stevens said (as I heard it) "Congratulations, Mr. President." However, when I viewed the taped segment later on YouTube, I heard Biden saying "Thank you, Mr. Justice."
(In response to this, another FReeper posted that he/she had heard what I'd heard at the live broadcast on Jan. 20, so it wasn't just me.)
So, it's possible that everyone is in on the big joke, SCOTUS included. As far as they are concerned (according to this theory), it's really Biden who is President, it's only a matter of time (weeks?) before it becomes official, and the Constitution remains unscathed and the Republic remains whole.
Remember the “slip” of the tongue when Obama introduced Biden as the next “President” of the United States?
Is there a youtube of that?
Not that I have seen.
I heard “Thank you Mr. Justice.”
I Joe Biden, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic;[ a long pause ] that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same;....
Biden; at gridiron dinner;
"Talk about the audacity of hope. President Obama does send his greetings, though. He cant be here tonight -- because hes busy getting ready for Easter. (Whisper) He thinks its about him. "
