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.
