Joe’s a 24/7 demonstration of the Peter Principle.

It’s always imagery and symbolism with these liberals. Never anything of substance.

Does this mean the homeless are gay fish?

By 2012, Slow Joe may actually BE there, by the grace of God and the American right-of-center electorate.

With Joe I think it's actually a violation of the Peter Principle. He's gone further up, waaaay further, than someone of his caliber would.

Apparently..and the fish sticks also existed in 1929 when FDR went on TV and told everyone that everything was going to be Ok.

Good for Joe. Finally found something he might be good at.

Ya know. Instead of FDR, 1933, very little TV and the actual stock market crash of 1929 and Herbert Hoover and very, very little TV.

That being said he’s still probably more competent than Barry.

And his gaffes are always good for a laugh. Really, they are.

Give a man a fishstick and he’ll eat for a day. Stop killing private industry so they can hire people like the fishstick guy, and he’ll eat every day.

Hmmm? Which is more compassionate?

I'm not a Joe Biden fan, but I'm not sure I get this post.

The V.P. is doing some public service at a church, and that quote "but for the grace of God go I" is certainly applicable to ALL of us.

Now, are fishsticks kind-of funny? Sure. But I don't think ol' slow Joe woke up one morning and said "What do the homeless need? FISHSTICKS!" I suspect that's what the center had on the menu, and he was just helping out with whatever they were doing.

This administration MUST start creating jobs, the real way (broad tax breaks), lest we all find ourselves in line for our fishsticks. And of course, Obama will fight that tooth and nail. But this? Eh, it's just politician public service - doing the right thing, with a camera crew in tow.

Biden, “you’ve got to remind yourself that but for the grace of God there goes I.”


Maybe we’re the lucky ones today.

Maybe it’s by God’s grace that he was out at the homeless shelter, instead of hanging around at the WH, advising Obama on the war.

Regardless, bless him for doing it.

I believe it came out during the campaign that old Joe was not much for charitable donations unless it is with other peoples money.

The church was very generous to serve the food and provide our middle class hero warrior with a photo op.

He may have misread his own teleprompter. Biden was given instructions to give one fish stick per person.

As a person passed, he put one on a plate and said

“"there goes 1."”
;)

As my grandpa would say, Joe don’t know the war’s over...

the only thing worse than an Obama presidency is the realization that we would be in for 3.5 years of president Biden.

Talk about something that would make your butt pucker, thats it.

He's that crazy uncle that lives in the attic; you hope your friends can't hear him, and you never bring your girl home, because you can't stand the thought of having to explain Uncle Joe.

Then you realize he's not in the attic anymore...

Too bad Obama was out of town. As we all know, he could have served the multitudes (all of D.C., anyway), with five rolls and two fishsticks, and turned the water into Sauvignon Blanc, too.

Obama is in Asia on another vacation junket. It’s by the grace of God that he’s not sitting around at the White House doing the job that he was elected for, which is to sit in for the President while he is away.

The real thing is, did Joe pay for the meal HIMSELF? Did he feel "but for the grace of God go I" , and reach into HIS OWN pocket and pay for this meal?

I remember 2-3 years ago Dick Cheney recieved some divedend or something, previously agreed upon, from Haliburton, for the tune of multiple millions of dollars. And he donated the entire amount to charity/s.

Not much said in the MSM about that.

I remember 2-3 years ago, GWB flew into Iraq under the cover of darkness. And unannounced, served our soldiers Thanksgiving dinner.

You honestly don't think he did any more than don the apron and pose for some photos, do you?

Note that even the shelter managers knew better than to trust him with any sharp objects like knives, etc.
