Biden Calls Custard Shop Manager a 'Smartass' After Taxes Comment (Wow!)
fox news ^ | 6/28/2010 | fox news

Posted on 06/28/2010 3:48:44 AM PDT by tobyhill

Vice President Biden called the manager of a custard shop outside of Milwaukee, Wis., a "smartass" after the man asked him to lower taxes.

Biden made the comment Friday after the Kopp’s Frozen Custard shop manager told him that his dessert would be on the house if he lowered taxes.

"What do we owe you?" Biden is heard saying in footage captured by WISN-TV.

"Don’t worry, it’s on us," the manager replied. "Lower our taxes and we’ll call it [the custard] even."

"Why don’t you say something nice instead of being a smartass all the time?" Biden said a few minutes later.

Should anyone expect anything better from a dumbass like Biden.

I picture him always with “Send in the Clowns” theme music.

This administration is one of the most rancorous I’ve ever seen.

Think about how a previous administration might respond?

A well we’re working on that...and then listing some things they’ve done...

Instead he holds the greatest contempt for the manager and displays it for all to see. He might as well have said, “Let them eat cake,” and we all know what happened to the person who said that.

You know what democrats...nobody has the right to treat people that way, nobody. It is that elitist attitude that will be your downfall.

“Why don’t you say something nice instead of being a smartass all the time?” Biden said a few minutes later.

That is the best he could come up with after a “few minutes” of contemplation and stewing? I suppose we should be impressed with that even...he is a democrat after all.

God help us when the politicians think they are royalty who cannot be questioned by the people without fear of retribution. democrat politicians have long ago given up any right to be considered American...they are nothing more or less than repugnant pigs.

Did anyone in biden’s entourage pay the shop owner for the product or did the arrogant, smug bass just walk? lunch-bucket joe is a thief even at that level.

After he wraps up his time with Feingold, Biden will visit the Gulf Coast on Tuesday to survey the damage caused by the BP oil spill.

I wonder how many "smart asses" he will find there?

The next food business needs to double the price for biden or any other marxist politiican. When they complain, just say, “Hey, I am saving up for the taxes you are going to raise on me”. Deal with it.

Yes I do.

So many liberals can't see beyond themselves. When I was growing up I had parents that enjoyed entertaining. We would have parties and lots of people would show up.

During these parties my father would get into political discussions and it was the libs that would shout insults at my father, even after presented with well thought out arguments.

I remember thinking that these people are guests in our house, and they are insulting the hosts. I see things haven't changed.

Biden is such an a-hole. 'Course, Biden wouldn't think taxes were a problem because - like so many other fascists, I mean democrats - he doesn't pay them!

"Why don’t you say something nice instead of being a smartass all the time?" Biden said a few minutes later.

This sounds to me as though Biden yet again, was attempting to be humorous. The only reason I say this is because Biden is so bad at delivering what he thinks are humorous lines. If he wasn't so full of himself he might be really funny.

Did anyone see or hear the comments in context?

Actually, those words fit pretty well.

Isn’t it rich?
Are we a pair?
Me here at last on the ground,
You in mid-air.
Send in the clowns.

Isn’t it bliss?
Don’t you approve?
One who keeps tearing around,
One who can’t move.
Where are the clowns?
Send in the clowns.

Just when I’d stopped
Opening doors,
Finally knowing
The one that I wanted was yours,
Making my entrance again
With my usual flair,
Sure of my lines,
No one is there.

Don’t you love farce?
My fault, I fear.
I thought that you’d want what I want -
Sorry, my dear.
But where are the clowns?
There ought to be clowns.
Quick, send in the clowns.

Isn’t it rich?
Isn’t it queer?
Losing my timing this late
In my career?
And where are the clowns?
Quick, send in the clowns.
Don’t bother - they’re here.

The part I find interesting about Biden’s quote is the “... all the time” part. How does he know the manager is a “smart ass” all the time?

But this was just a humorous guy-moment over a cup of custard...

The shop owner should have said, “It’s usually $1.50, but for you $3.”

“Why is that?” Biden would ask.

“Fairness,” the smiling owner would say.

No. They didn’t pay. The manager was on Fox & Friends this morning. Nice guy. He wasn’t trying to make a political point. I commented that he just said what everyone is thinking — they’d like a tax break. He’d been joking with Biden prior to this film, and he really didn’t think he was saying anything untoward.

I should point out that Kopp’s is the premier custard stand in Milwaukee and environs. It is IMPOSSIBLE to be in a sour mood at Kopps, their product is SO GOOD. What should have been a plus for the VP and the Senator was turned into a great negative here because members of ALL parties love their Kopps.

I saw the film, and it is hard to understand. I did not hear the “all the time” ending. I heard “smartass” and “Why don’t you say something nice.” And it was unclear who he was addressing that remark to. It could have been to one of the staffers, or to Feingold. I wonder about allowing Biden to scoop his own cone? Did he wash? He put on a hat, but I’d be worried that he contaminated the product.

This is just another one of those incidents where big bully Joe can say anything he wants, but the ordinary folk are not allowed to talk back. Joe is so full of his elitism that I’m surprised that he could choke down his custard. For sure, it was wasted on him.

Come on now, Biden is mentally handicapped. He’s a Democrat. Give him a pass.

Calling a taxpaying voter and employer of Americans a “smart ass” is in no way like calling the most high VP of the US “Joe Biteme” or using the word “macaca”.

Not at all.

“Don’t worry, it’s on us,” the manager replied. “Lower our taxes and we’ll call it [the custard] even.”

If our VP had any sense of humor at all, he could have simply said “Well, I’d better pay you then.”

I bet that would have even gotten a chuckle out of the store owner.

Nay, they don’t “rise to the level” of pigs. Pigs can find truffles, root out nutgrass and other weeds and they make some fine sausage. Pigs are far more useful than Democrats. A pound of good pork barbecue is worth more than all the Democrats in congress.
