Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani said something on NBC's Meet the Press Sunday that is such a metaphysical certitude it should be an embarrassment for all so-called journalists across the fruited plain.
"If [Joe Biden] were a Republican, if Sarah Palin made that level of mistakes, Dick Cheney, he'd be plastered all over the media" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
DAVID GREGORY, HOST: You mentioned the thrust and the parry of the campaign this week, and Vice President Biden raising a lot of eyebrows talking about how Romney/Ryan would put yall back in chains was his quote. He went out of his way to say there was no racial implication in all that. You've been tough on Vice President Biden. You said he doesn't have the mental capacity should he become president, that he's not too bright. What's the impact of something like this this week?
RUDY GIULIANI: Well, I was astounded by his remarks. When I first heard it, I didn't see -- I didn't see the -- the tape. I just heard it. And I was really startled by it. I thought, This is a really dumb remark. And that's why I said he's not so bright, and you wonder. And it isnt just that comment. I mean, Joe is, Joe is a laugh line on Jay Leno. He's not a vice president. I mean, he's a joke. You never know what he's going to say.
In one week he thought he was in the wrong state, he thought he was in the wrong century, he didn't know that Paul Ryan was a congressman, and of course he said this awful thing. The other three I don't know. Everybody makes mistakes, but Joe seems to make a disproportionate number of mistakes.
And I really do believe, and don't get offended because Republicans believe this, we all believe this, we believe we're treated more unfairly by the media than Democrats. I truly believe if that were a Republican, if Sarah Palin made that level of mistakes, Dick Cheney, he'd be plastered all over the media. The New York Times would go nuts. They'd be raising questions about is he smart enough, what's going on, how does a guy make so many mistakes? Is he fit to be president? That's really why I said it because I wanted to even up the score.
The fact is what Giuliani said was undeniable.
As such, exactly how do today's so-called journalists square this from a professional standpoint?
Or does that even matter anymore?
Everyone on Fox News Brett Baier’s show the other day said the media didn’t report anything bad about Biden because he invited them all to his parties. I guess the MSM are cheaper than whores these days if all it takes is a few drinks and cheap finger sandwiches.
articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy
“You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.... I’m not joking.”
Look, John’s last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number-one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs
“My mother believed and my father believed that if I wanted to be president of the United States, I could be, I could be Vice President!” —Joe Biden, campaigning in Youngstown, Ohio, May 16, 2012
“I promise you, the president has a big stick. I promise you.” —Joe Biden, citing Theodore Roosevelt’s famous quote, “Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far.” (April 26, 2012)
“You know, I’m embarrassed. Do you know the Web site number? I should have it in front of me and I don’t. I’m actually embarrassed.” Joe Biden, speaking to an aide standing out of view during an interview on CBS’ “Early Show,” in the midst of encouraging viewers to visit a government-run Web site that tracks stimulus spending, Feb. 25, 2009
“If we do everything right, if we do it with absolute certainty, there’s still a 30% chance we’re going to get it wrong.” —Joe Biden, speaking to members of the House Democratic caucus who were gathered in Williamsburg, Va., for their annual retreat, Feb. 6, 2009
“Jill and I had the great honor of standing on that stage, looking across at one of the great justices, Justice Stewart.” Joe Biden, mistakenly referring to Justice John Paul Stevens, who swore him in as vice president, Washington, D.C., Jan. 20, 2009
Nope, here is when Joe Biden is plastered:
Pass it around. This is truly pathetic that this is our VP.
And this one:”You cannot go to a 7-11 or Dunkin Donuts unless you have a slight Indian Accent.”
Comments on Obama (before chosen as VP by Narcissus)
And citing “My state was a slave state” as a positive for southern votes:
Biden Gaffe: Asks a Gentleman in a Wheelchair to Stand Up
If Palin or Romney or Ryan or even Giuliani had been making such gaffes there would have been a democrat/public outcry for a look at their medical records as to brains. No such demand as to Biden because it is a very sensitive matter. I suspect that as convention time draws near there will be more than just Hillary being asked to replace Biden.
And a great compilation of BidenGaffes:
I know. I was just kidding you. :)
>> I know. I was just kidding you. :)
We Grammar Nazis do not think it’s a laughing matter. We take our grammar very srsly.
>> Quayle spelled it -oe and caught hell for it.
A “teacher” gave Quayle a cue card with the word misspelled. A #ing childish move from the spawn of Carter.
Wouldn't that be a Spelling Nazi rather than a grammar nazi? (Not to be a syntax nazi or anything.)
When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didnt just talk about the princes of greed. He said, look, heres what happened.
"Part of what a leader does is to instill confidence, is demonstrate that he or she knows what they're talking about and communicates to people 'if you listen to me and follow what I'm suggesting we can fix this' ... When the stock market crashed Franklin Roosevelt went on television..."So he prefaced his gaffe with a statement that a leader demonstrates that he knows what he's talking about, and then demostrated forcefully that he has no stinking clue what he's talking about.
(emphasis added, but all grammar and syntax errors verbatim as stated by dopey joe)
Yes, I'll request that the Moderator fix that error in my comment.
Thank you for pointing it out.
The less I see or hear of Julie Annie, the better. Tutti fruttis like him(?) drove the GOP off the tracks.
