Joe Biden Claims Indian Relatives
Weekly Standard ^

oe Biden Claims Indian Relatives Daniel Halper July 24, 2013 8:04 AM

Vice President Joe Biden, speaking today at the Bombay stock exchange, claimed Indian relatives.

"Thank you all for giving me this opportunity. It’s an honor to be back in India and to be here in Mumbai," Biden said to kick off his speech. "Off script for a second here, I was reminded -- I was elected to the United States Senate when I was a 29-year-old kid back in 1972, and one of the first letters I received and I regret I never followed up on it. Maybe some genealogist in audience can follow up for me, but I received a letter from a gentleman named Biden -- Biden, my name -- from Mumbai, asserting that we were related. (Laughter.) Seriously. Suggesting that our mutual, great, great, great, something or other worked for the East India Trading Company back in the 1700s and came to Mumbai.

"And so I was thinking about it, if that's true, I might run here in India for office. (Laughter.) I might be qualified. But I’ve never followed up on it. But now that I’m back for the multiple times, I’m going to follow up to find out whether there is a Biden and whether we’re related. I hope he’s in good standing if we are. (Laughter.)"

Biden also said that after this trip, he'd be able to return to Delaware and brag to the Indian-American community there.

Any weekend in Delaware -- we have a very significant and tight Indian-American community -- any weekend in Delaware, you can find the Delaware United Cricket Club competing. And now I have bragging rights. I will be able to go back and tell my friends who belong to that club that I visited the home of the best cricket team in the world. It will give me some reason to -- (applause). You won the International Cricket Council Championship.

And as an Irish American, it pleased my heart to see you beat Britain, England. (Laughter.) That's a joke, by the way, for the press. (Laughter.) I don't want to hear a headline: Biden at Odds with British Empire, you know? (Laughter.) But it does make me feel good. (Laughter.)

Please, please, please, PLEASE move to India and run for office, Mr. Biden.

(Sorry, India - I've got nothing against you, but I've got to look out for me and mine first)

They forgot the part where Joe wants to prove to them that he’s part Indian and puts his hand in front of his mouth and takes it away....repeating this action over and over making “WOO WOO WOO” sounds.

Whoa, Joe. Be careful there. Claiming that you are Indian because an ancestor worked for the East India Trading Company is like claiming you are black because your ancestor owned a plantation. The white English who worked for the East India Trading Company weren't exactly gentlemen to the native populations they ruled over.

Does this mean that Joe will fire a couple of warning shots with his bow rather than a shotgun?

The number of references to himself (I, me, my) in just this short article is amazing. A total obsession with his own sense of importance and gradiosity. Just like Obama.

Biden narrowly escapes monkey threat in India

Jul. 23, 2013 1:34pm Meredith Jessup

During Joe Biden’s diplomatic trip to India this week — or, as Biden may understand it, the largest 7-11 he’s ever visited — security personnel surrounding the vice president worked extra hard to protect him from a unique threat: monkeys.

Yes. Apparently there are a few people in India willing to listen to him blather. Maybe there was free food and booze.

Sorry, but that's way too subtle for Joey the Genius.

Neither are Indian of any kind, so they may actually be related. They are definitely both delusional.

How is it that Slow Joe and the, now, Poseur-in-Chief were not laughed off the national stage in 2008?

It would be funny if there were not lasting consequences attached to this ongoing nightmare.
