Biden Jokes He’ll Be ‘The Speaker’ at GOP Convention

MINNEAPOLIS – Vice President Joe Biden joked about his role at the Republican National Convention next week, telling a group of press he would be a featured speaker in Tampa.

“Any of you going to be in Florida?” Biden asked reporters during a campaign stop. “Well, I’m the speaker at the convention. I’m gonna be down there.”

Earlier in the day, the Obama campaign announced Biden would spend time in Florida on Monday and Tuesday, including stops in Tampa, where the GOP will hold its convention next week.

Biden popped into football practice at Minneapolis South High School, the home of the Tigers, Tuesday afternoon. When a player asked him if he and Obama were going to “put Mitt Romney down,” Biden was careful to answer, saying he’d rephrase the question so the press wouldn’t misconstrue his answer.

Barry is sending his head boy in to try to screw up the GOP convention. That’s probably a good thing because the GOP is so serious about saving Medicare, getting the jobs thing fixed and restoring the economy that I’d be willing to bet everyone forgot to hire a clown for entertainment. It was nice of the DNC to send their head clown, Rimshot Joe. He’s always good for a few laughs.

In the real world, if Biden joked “I’m the Vice President of the United States”, all the reporters would dissolve in laughter.

ABC offers ol Lunchbucket Joe the chance to recast himself as the loveable uncle who might occasionally slip up from time to time but has a great sense of humor.

An opportunity they somehow forgot to offer Palin, Cheney & Quayle.

I say let's have a little reality-game show side show outside the big circus tent in Tampa.

Todd Aiken challenges Joe Biden to game of Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader?.

Keith Olberdorque could be the moderator, I understand he is out of gig, and could benefit from the face time.

It could settle the question once and for all just how stupid are these two doofuses?

I think Rimshot Joe is being “taken out of context”. He meant that he was going to be “THE JOKER” at the GOP convention.

They SHOULD invite Biden to speak at the GOP convention! Not only would it be hilarious for the delegates, but you can guarantee that Biden will say something so gaffe-worthy that it would be in the news for the next few weeks.

Biden actually told the press he would be a “Tampax convention spokesman” and the they went with the flow.

A CONSERVATIVE BLESSING FOR JOE.

May the stage rise up to meet your face,
May the wind always knock you on your backside.
May the sun shine warm upon your lies and deceit,
The rains fall hard upon your baldhead.
And until we meet again,
May your messiah obama continue to hold you in the palm of his hand.

"Biden Jokes He’ll Be ‘The Speaker’ at GOP Convention..."

.....Well ..... to me it seems obvious that the one and only reason Bumbling Joe is being sent to the convention is to provide a diversion and distraction for the media to fawn over the wonderful gentleman from Delaware instead of reporting on the actual issues that will be covered by the speakers and delegates...... IMO another slick move on behalf of the Obama/Biden Machine.

The Obama camp gets rid of Fredo for awhile, and the media runs circles around itself with whild speculation. Meanwhile, Holder is still in contempt, Corzine is still a crook, the economy is still stagnated to depression levels, Iran is still building the bomb, and we still don’t really know who Obama is.

As Greg Gutfeld said on “The Five”, the White House told Biden that it’s the Democrat Convention in Tampa that week and he has to be there for that.

As I recall, some of the networks are allowed to bring guests, like when MSNBC brought in that fat sh** Michael Moore. So I'm betting someone invited Plugs in hopes some little event will happen and they can scream he was assaulted. He's there to cause a distraction.

Used to be, when the other Party had their Convention, you backed off and kept low until it was completed. Obama isn't going to do that. Neither should we.

We need to take AMERICA back and it begins in Tampa. You know the Obummer is trying to stoke up a riot in Tampa. It is the DNC convention where they should be afraid. I would give money to the occupy folks to show up in Charlotte. You know the Rat’s have done that for Tampa.

We are probably going to see some cities burn between now and the election. You know that Obama is going to rise the crisis level to a new all time high.

I’ll admit I’m an old fart but back in the day the opposing party would lay low during the other folks convention and vice versa.

I guess those days are over.

I hate RATS.

Joe's only way out of prison time:

Speak to the RNC convention, spilling his guts about the Kenyan usurper,

plead for mercy and protection,

and pray like hell that he doesn't go to jail (and Hell) anyway.


I can dream silly dreams, can't I?

What 0bama really said to Slow Joe was “One more stupid crack from you and they’ll find your body in Tampa hidden in a speaker.”

They send Biden because if he makes a dumb statement, and we all know he will, they’re covered because everyone knows he’s the village idiot. But, if by chance he says something smart, they hurt the republicans. I’d bet on the first but apparently obama thinks the odds are worth the risk.

I think he is there to start trouble. Or at least be there if something happens.

Then say that Republicans are worse than occupiers.

He has to do something to redeem himself. Kind of like the loser sissy boy who dreams of making the Hail Mary pass in the last two seconds of the game to win the championship so everyone will like him and he will be the popular boy.

Keep dreaming, Joe. Keep dreaming.

“So I’m asking around some more.—— Within 30 minutes he gets back to me. We got legit Intel from military source. Nothing concrete. Which got our source’s attention. That is a big red alert. This thing is being planned. Staged. Might be a handful of local law enforcement in on it. Apparently a related communication from DHS within the last 24 hrs. Union thugs. Got to be a Jarrett Gerard initiated plan. Something along those lines.

I’m giving you and your readers a heads up here. False flag. The real deal. They will try and control it but make it look uncontrolled. Dangerous. Make it reflect poorly on the Republicans and their supporters. A dangerous and desperate operation here. Even a dimwit like Biden has to know how dangerous.”

I still want to know why Biden is allowed to make a campaign appearance on our dime. We’re paying for the Secret Service, travel expenses, etc. for his campaign.

I thought that was illegal.

He and BO have been doing that from the getgo.

NO ONE in DC has the BALLS to stand up to this ilk, call them on it and put a stop to this.

But what do we really expect from a party that stiffs towns and cities by refusing to pay costs for security and other expenses incurred by that party for something that benefits them.

Screwing the poor man. What the dems do best.
