Skip to comments.Joe Biden: Obama Administration – Not Bush White House – Owns The Economy’s Problems
Posted on 09/30/2011 1:44:49 AM PDT by edpc
President Obama's administration has long cited decisions made under George W. Bush as one of the main reasons why today's economy is in such turmoil. But Vice President Joe Biden dismissed that argument Thursday, telling Miami radio station WLRN that's not relevant.
"Even though 50-some percent of the American people think the economy tanked because of the last administration, that's not relevant," the vice president said. "What's relevant is we're in charge."
Biden added that he doesn't blame people who are mad at the administration, and said it is understandable and "totally legitimate" for the 2012 presidential election to be "a referendum on Obama and Biden and the nature and state of the economy."
So when do you think Joe was told he wouldn’t have a job in 2012...before the comment, or after?
Awesome, so its official now and Zero can’t use that excuse anymore. I’m liking this crackup.
Even obamma’s own vice-president is turning against him. Love it!!!!!
Go JOE GO!!!!
Sorry, but he deserves the kudos for that brief contact with reality.
What a genius
Just Joe bein’ Joe.
Plugs just threw himself under the bus.
Gotta agree with elRushbo. Libs ALWAYS overreach. They stuck Biden in as insurance totally ignoring his history of hoof-in-mouth disease. Then they send him out into the world expecting him to make minor flubs that ‘add to his character’ and further insulate Obama from Impeachment.
Trouble is, Joe never seems to get the memo and flubs BIG, leaving Dems to scramble to fix his messes.
They can’t. He has made one GOP commercial after another if only some candidate has the huevos to use them.
What reason does Obama have to keep Biden on the ticket? Nothing to lose .
>>Go JOE GO!!!!

Even a broken clock has the correct time twice a day.
What’s relevant is an election coming up where a lot more leftest, marxist, democrat, liberals will be sent packing, from the dog catcher right up to the pound
This statement should be part of a GREAT GOP commercial!!
You can say that again Joe (and again and again in an upcoming Republican campaign ad).
You know we’re going to control the insurance companies.
Let’s just be smart this time. I’m looking for smart.
Just talk to me as a father - not what the Constitution says. What do you feel?
I support immediate financial assistance to the newly elected Palestinian president. Now, I don’t know what those numbers will be, and I don’t know how it’s going to be framed.
When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the princes of greed. He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened.’
Now, people when I say that look at me and say, ‘What are you talking about, Joe? You’re telling me we have to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt?’. The answer is yes, that’s what I’m telling you.
Still makes him the slowest pig in the pen.
Obama and his fellow thieves own their corruption along with Holder owning Fast and Furious plus being an accomplice to the violence created by Fast and Furious. I find the absence of outrage coming out of the Congress deafening. Can we assume they’re all complicit since not one of them has the spine and guts to come before the American people with the truth? Is their re-election all they care about? Is there not one patriot willing to put their country before their own quest for power?
I haven’t heard any cries for a special prosecutor or demand(s) for impeachment? Must be the severe shortage of gonads among the entire GOP. Boner being the head eunuch, in my opinion. They disgrace themselves and their country.
Nice of you to finally notice, Joe! What's it been? Nigh onto three years?
With Solyndra, Fast & Furious, Libya, Yemen, the obvious payola from the first stimulus - I cannot believe that people are not calling for impeachment of this president.
As I’ve posted, the Republicans in Congress are spineless, gutless embarrassments who should hang their heads in shame.
Except Col. West, none of them are worthy of licking the boots of our troops who are defending this nation from our enemies. The enemies within are running rampant with no one in Congress stopping them.
If any of the Republicans in Congress possess a pair, they would be demanding impeachment and investigations into everyone associated with this wannabe dictator. Their silence smells!
So true. Most are in on the stealing.
Biden: I’m your older Senator, Barack, and I was stepped over!
Obama: That’s the way the DNC wanted it.
Biden: It ain’t the way I wanted it! I can handle things! I’m smart! Not like everybody says... like dumb... I’m smart and I want respect!
Obama: Joe, you’re nothing to me now. You’re not a Democrat, you’re not a friend. I don’t want to know you or what you do. I don’t want to see you at the hotels, I don’t want you near my house. When you see our congress, I want to know a day in advance, so I won’t be there. You understand?
