Skip to comments.Biden: One more GOP budget gripe and 'I am going to strangle them'
Posted on 01/13/2011 7:06:35 PM PST by FromLori
Vice President Biden jokingly expressed his frustration toward Republicans on Tuesday, accusing them of having insincere concerns about the budget deficit.
Biden jokingly said that GOP protests about the need for a balanced budget made him want to strangle them, which the vice president quickly clarified was a figure of speech.
If I hear one more Republican tell me about balancing the budget, I am going to strangle them, Biden said at a fundraiser in Minnesota, according to a pool report. To the press, thats a figure of speech.

Democratic civility. They can use all the violent metaphors they want. Republicans who use them are viewed as incivil.
I wish he’d try that, and then we could get rid of him. snicker.
the democrats KNOW the media will let them off the hook and I think Biden knows Palin was unfairly attacked thats why he’s trolling with this
Strangling is OK. It’s only shooting that’s out of bounds.
He pointed it out, though. He is actually making fun of his own proclivity for gaffes, which is probably just as well.
Next time he says something stupid, he will turn around and blame those who took it seriously.
What’s hilarious is seeing liberals having to excuse common every day expressions. Oh well - they brought it on themselves.
Slow Joe, Tone It Down!
Did Biden inspire the Boston Strangler?
Can you fire a bullet into their throat and then tell them "I hope you strangle on it"?
Biden have a habit of slipping out the truth
I want to hear Jim Clyburn demand Biden be arrested, quartered and hung for that comment!
Well, OK. As long as he doesn’t publish a map with surveyors marks over their districts because then that would really be some vitriolic, violent rhetoric.
Biden’s a chump.
It has nothing to do with incivility, and everything to do with blaming the shootings on the Republicans.
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Now, now we can’t have any of that violent talk. Someone might get murdered. Oh I forgot, silly me, the left can say whatever it wants to with impunity.
I took that to be a joke on the press for the way they twisted everything. I laughed when I read it.
Biden, Gibbs and Dupnik must have a bet on who can say the stupidest things. I’m glad I don’t have to be the judge.
Will all future strangulations across the country be blamed on Joe Biden?
Cries on uncivility are nothing more than attempts to try to censor conservatives.
He has a point. Bush/Hasteret/Lott. The GOP on spending is a dry hole. Boob bait. For suckers.
“Biden jokingly expressed......”
“...I am going to strangle them...”
“........thats a figure of speech.
I am thinking that if I made a similar “joke”, directed at Biden or Obama, in a “figure of speech” sort of way... the secret service would be at my doorstep in the morning.
Man. FReepers to the rescue again. I was going to post this.
Off topic , but I have a question . Today I heard biden say his flight home from Iraq was the first he did not have to fly home with the body of an American soldier . Yesterday I heard a news report saying it was biden’s first trip to Iraq . Who’s lying ?
...which the vice president quickly clarified was a figure of speech.And plagiarized, but no surprise there. Thanks FromLori.
Not very civil Mr VP
Still spending time putting black lines around your comments, hm? Pathetic. Maybe try to distinguish your comments by the content, rather than the black borders you add. Pathetic. You’re no FReeper.
“Oh well - they brought it on themselves.”
Yeah—hold them to their own rules.
A little mandantory anger management and sensitivity training appears in order. Mr. Biden appears to be totally insensitive to the concerns and needs of conservatives! He is not being inclusive with us. He is not being fair. WWWaaaaaaaggggghhh!!!
Where’s the civility, Joe?
I certainly am hell not going to let the democrats and the liberal media define “civility” for everyone. Not when Pelosi or anyone else ever reigned in Alan Grayson, or Obama, or Biden, or Dean, or any of them that were far, far worse. Hell they can’t stop putting Grayson on for hate-spewing interviews and he isn’t even in Congress anymore.
Time to end this crap about civility. What happened this January when the 112th Congress was seated was “civility”. The smooth transition of power is civility. The 2010 elections where people elected leaders is civility. Not coups. Not bloody revolts. Not chaos.
We already have civility. Have some balls and say ‘civility’ is a DEMOCRAT code word for CENSORSHIP. A liberal nut shoots his liberal congressperson for not being liberal enough and the democrats and media try to spin this as a ‘civility’ issue.
We need to stop playing the left’s game because we have Obamacare to roll back or defund. Real work needs to get done. Not the fairness doctrine, not killing 1A or 2A rights.
Yeah Biden Ha Ha, but what about balancing the budget???
You forgot “hateful”. Joe was hateful. Divisive. Why the hate, Joe? You have the White House. Why are you clinging to your bitter hate, Joe?
Why do you rail on the republicans when a left wing loon shoots his left-wing congressperson for not being liberal enough? Why do you hatefully try to portray it being the fault of republicans and talk radio? He isn’t a right wing guy, Joe. He’s one of YOUR guys Joe.
He was pissed Giffords didn’t vote for Pelosi to be minority leader, Joe. That was the last straw. that was her not being liberal enough for him.
Why the lies and the hate Joe? Can you just not help yourself?
Ew! How vitriolic!
Disclaimer: The Clinton Parse-o-matic 98 has NOT been tested on subjects with subnormal IQs, so accuracy is not guaranteed in this case.
The MSM ‘knows’ it’s a joke when said by a Dem. Same thing said by a conservative would be classed as hate speech.
Forgive me!! How could I forget hate?? The topic of the week!!!! Confess your hate, Joe!!!! Repetance and humility is good for the soul!!! LOL!!!! Libs are all mega-turds!!!!!
Yeah, isn’t he being violent?
Off topic answer.
Three trips and his comment makes one wonder about how politicians define hostilities.
As in, hostilities ended.
Not the first time. In 2008, he told reporters that if one more person questioned his religion, he would stuff his raosry beads down their throat. It took me about 5 seconds to question his religion. I’m still witing for him to make good on his threat.
Yes , I took note of that , also .
Biden can’t even get this right.
“Holding the bag” is a figure of speech.
“Left out in the cold” is a figure of speech.
What’s a threat of strangulation a metaphor for in this instance?
