Posted on 10/26/2010 5:20:32 PM PDT by Bigtigermike
So said Joe Biden today on the second-floor bar at the Helmsley Park Lane Hotel at a fundraiser for incumbent Democratic NY-1 Rep. Tim Bishop.
Every single great idea that has marked the 21st century, the 20th century and the 19th century has required government vision and government incentive, he said. In the middle of the Civil War you had a guy named Lincoln paying people $16,000 for every 40 miles of track they laid across the continental United States. No private enterprise would have done that for another 35 years.
For innovation and business, people don't look towards government!!!!
It is frightening what Obama is doing right know, It is doubling frightening to think that Joe Biden is one heartbeat away as well.

What. A. Tool.
This is what we have sent to Washington. We deserve our fate!
What, you haven’t heard of the Franklin stove research and development grant? LOL
The sad thing is.. LIBERALS, in general... actually BELIEVE this... I hear it from them all the time.
WHAT “innovation” came from government? Besides the A-bomb. I’d love to see another example.
This nub makes Obama look competent!!
Come November you're gonna see what "incentive" can do.
Don’t you just love the leftest slme media. Quayle make one or two memorable verbal gaffes, where this idiot VP does it daily. And gets away with it.
So, the Big Mac came from the Government? And the paperclip? And Beta and VHS? And Pepsi?
What a mind-bogglingly idiotic statement. Tell it to the Wright brothers. Or Thomas Edison. Or Henry Ford. And on and on and on. We should be using this quote against him and Obama through 2012 - and beyond if necessary.
Biden proves he’s an 855hole everytime he speaks to his stupid lib base:
For instance, the Wright Bros., Orville an Wilbur, beat the crap out of the heavily financed government support lead by Langley. But the Wright bros had a strong advantage, they didn’t have to continually worry about money, brains, or fortitude, they had plenty of each especially brains and fortitude.
Langley tried to cheat the Wright Bros. out of their rightful place in history as the inventors of the first airplane.
Okay, this is almost as funny as the hand on the trooper’s knee.
How is laying track an “idea”? That is manual labor.
The train was invented by private individuals (The invention of the steam engine and locomotive  are usually attributed to James Watt. The train, as a vehicle of transportation, was invented in 1822 by an English inventor named George Stephenson. Answers.com)
Yes, Thomas Alva Edison, if he were alive today would be rolling over in his grave. Either that or he’s hanging out with Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone laughing at (not with) the V.P.
Now we know why Biden was called the dumbest man in the Senate. And why Barry picked him to be VP.
Biden couldn’t identify a good idea if it bit him.
If the FAA would have been around when the Wright Bros. were perfecting manned flight .... right ......
