Skip to comments.Biden doubles down on jobs-bill rape argument, keeps 2016 presidential options open

Vice President Joe Bidens statement last week that the GOPs reluctance to pass the White Houses jobs bill would lead to an increase in rapes and murders was considered outrageous by many.
Biden didnt back away from his words on Sundays broadcast of CNNs State of the Union. According to the vice president, its an issue of simple math.
Heres what my point is it is a fact, ever since I wrote the crime bill 20 years ago, weve put to rest the notion that if you have more cops, theres less crime, Biden said.
When you drastically cut the number of police in cities, which is happening all across America, crime goes up. That is a fact. Now, they either are going to figure out how to help those cities the way we want to help them, or some other way. But if they dont get help, crime is going to continue go up. Its that simple. Its not an ideological point its not a political point, its just a physical reality.
joe biden and reality are two mutually exclusive concepts.
There is not a Republican dead or alive that Biden could beat.
He can’t even win an argument with himself.
I would vote for Joe Biden, before I would vote for Romney.
Biden is too stupid to do too much damage.
It is just about true that Obama cannot beat any live Republican but that is no excuse to nominate Romney and make it close.
Run Plugs Run!
So if we had 300 million cops there would be no crime?
What a tool Biden is...
He won’t run in 2016. That would put him in competition with Obama trying to get his job back from Cain.
I keep wondering what the Democrats will do for a sequel once the Republican ham sandwich wins in 2012.
Actually, if there were that many cops there’d be no crime. There’d be no freedoms either.
But, as for Biden, I don’t think the number of cops decreases crime. It just increases arrests. jmho
“What a tool Biden is...”
A real load in the pants.
Why are you bring Mitt into this? Why did you bring him up - why is he on your mind? Get your candidate to do his job and get him off the panel of candidates.
I would call Biden a horse’s ass, but why give horses a bad rap?
