Biden: 'I may be a white boy, but I can jump'
FoxNews.com ^ | February 26, 2014

Posted on 02/26/2014 5:43:57 AM PST by SJackson

Vice President Joe Biden defended his basketball skills at a Black History Month event in Washington on Tuesday, jokingly telling about 150 attendees, "I may be a white boy, but I can jump."

Biden, who hosted the reception at the Naval Observatory with his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, said that he wanted to team up with former NBA star and Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson to take on President Obama, The Washington Post reported.

"I told the president, next game, I've got him," Biden said.

Taking a more serious tone, Biden expressed his disappointment with Voter ID laws passed in Southern states, including North Carolina, Alabama and Texas, saying such laws are evidence of "zealotry" and "hatred," according to a White House pool report.

White men can’t jump. Black men can’t read.

But, he’s a democRat - he’ll get a pass.

Joe ‘the schmuck’ BIden reminds me of a kid who'll say anything he thinks the older, cool kids want to hear, in order to be accepted in their clique.

I couldn't care less about the 'jump' comment. It's his disappointment with voter ID laws passed in an effort to protect one of our most sacred freedoms that he should be booted for. There is ONE and only ONE possible reason to oppose voter ID laws.

OK, how does voter ID express hatred and bigotry? I keep hearing how the “poor, the students, the elderly, the minorities, etc don’t have ID’s”. I work with many democrats, and i have asked them who they knew that didn’t have an ID. At first they repeated these standard lines, and when I pressed them for evidence, they said they know of no one who didn’t have an id and they all agreed that a person could not function in this country without some form of ID. The point became pointless then and they all agreed. Clearly the LW is basing this on emotions and not facts again

Biden could have said “I may be white but I love watermelon” and he’d get a pass.

Digging in his head to fix an aneurism, twice, obviously did lots of damage.

Imagine for a moment the reaction in the press if those words had come out of a conservative Republican’s mouth.

Why bother putting the MSM under their boot when they were perfectly happy kneeling and licking those boots already?

If I were a governor or resident of any of these states I'd tell this incompetent buffoon where he could stick it.

Why is it, that every time they let old drunk Joe make a public statement, that I suspect there’s something nefarious going on behind the curtain, something they really don’t want people to pay attention to?

People have come to expect idiocy from Biden, and he doesn’t disappoint. He is the VP, a heartbeat away from the presidency, and the best Democrats have to offer. The media adores him. Hollywood and university professors revere him as a true genius of the left. If not for Hillary....

The TSA could be the most hateful place on earth. All those hateful liquor stores. All those hateful government welfare offices that demand ID. And let us not forget the hateful anti-voter ID marchers who were required to have a photo ID.

Yeah. Just like Hillery,that bitch, can say in a black Baptist church “I ain’t no ways tired!’’. Galls me to no end not only how the Dems get away with racist pandering but how dumb most blacks are to put up with it. They put up with it because they’re just ignorant of the racist history of the Democrat Party or they’ve been bought off by it.
