Skip to comments.Biden Tells Obama Birth Certificate Joke at Gridiron Dinner
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.
odumbo must love this
I guess you had to be there.
Biden is ready to be President.
The point of the joke is notably vague.
One can only wonder what the Obama people could be scrambling for behind the scenes, and how much their birth certificate anxiety has increased with each passing day.
He’s a bigger idiot than I thought. That’s not even funny. Where is the irony? If there were any truth to it, or if Cheney were involved in the birth certificate issue, then it would have been funny.
Biden is the joke......
Many a truth is said in jest.
Perhaps he's telegraphing something....
President Bidet and Vice President Hillary!
One heartbeat away...
Cheney’ note to Slow Joe found in the desk drawer: There is a life jacket in the closet to use when thinking about jumping into the deep end of the Think Tank.
If only he really had it so he could show it and put an end to the questions!
Obama, the first president in decades not to attend the Gridiron Club dinner during his first year in office, couldn't make it because he's busy preparing for Easter, Biden said. "He thinks it's about him," Biden said of the holiday.
“But the Obama Administration really is a good team. I am the experienced veteran. Rahm can be an enforcer. And Tim Geithner is always there when you need to borrow money. And no questions asked.”
Hahahahahahaha ... oh, wait a minute. He’s not joking.
Uh Oh, Joe hasn’t beeen taking his lithium
As far as I’m concerned, Biden can be president starting tomorrow.
“busy preparing for Easter”
Lol. Easter isn’t until April 12. Try another excuse.
Or how about the truth? Obama was afraid that the roast would lower his popularity numbers even more.
‘He really is funny in person’
Other than the Dobbs joke, Biden was pretty funny.
Strange how Biden can develop jokes about Obama but Leno and Letterman are lost.
“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. "
“Biden is the joke..”
We thought they were Hair Plugs Biden
had put in his heade, but they were a diversion!
They really were Braailed to takein Transplant Plugs, but they obviously failed to “ take root!”
I dont get it
The ghost of George Washington appears, and obama says, “How can I best serve my country?”
Washington says, “Never tell a lie,”
uhhh, errr, hmmm! Says obama, I don’t know about that. Too late!
The next night, the ghost of Thomas Jefferson appears...obama says, “How can I best serve my country?”
Jefferson says, “Listen to the people,”
Yeah right, no way! I really won’t and can’t do that. Not part of THE PLAN.
On the third night, the ghost of Abe Lincoln appears...obama says, “How can I best serve my country?”
Lincoln says, “Go to the theater.”
Thank you, thecondont. Big joke? Big joke?
Oh, sorry, wasn't shouting at you. To prevent riots, huh?
“Many a truth is said in jest”
Now that's pretty funny.
***Bambis ego wont allow for him to sit there and be mocked, even if it is by friends.***
I don’t think he has any real friends. That’s part of the problem.
>>As far as Im concerned, Biden can be president starting tomorrow.<<
And by Wednesday, we’ll be wishing that 0bama were back. Old Joe has never met a minority he won’t insult; nor pick a fight against no one.
If that POS becomes POTUS, the whole world will laugh (harder) at us.
Actually, yes. I have considered that Obama's "people" keep this story alive to keep a segment of the opposition busy chasing the possibility and ambusing Supreme Court Justices with questions in public about matters that they are trying to get heard before the Court.
