Biden slams 'smart' aleck
New York Post ^ | June 27, 2010

Posted on 06/27/2010 6:47:26 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Vice President Joe Biden served up a zinger at a Milwaukee, Wis., frozen custard shop Friday, telling the manager to stop "being a smart a- -" after he asked for lower taxes.

When Biden went to pay for his vanilla cone with chocolate flakes at Kopp's Frozen Custard, the manager initially said: "Don't worry, it's on us," according to a local television station.

After Biden insisted on paying, the manager said: "Lower our taxes and we'll call it even."

Biden, who has a long suffered from foot-in-mouth disease, then chided the worker to, "say something nice instead of being a smart a- - all the time."

Odd, I didn’t see this story, which reflects poorly on the vice-president, on cnn.com

Biden’s mama should have washed his filthy mouth out with soap when he was little so he wouldn’t have grown up into such a smartarse.

Biden kept asking if the guy could say something nice. I wonder how long it has been since Biden said something nice about President Bush.

so now that’s both the VP & the P of this admin have used that word in public.

So much for the decorum of office. These clowns wouldn’t even understand the relevance of it.

No, no, no. The witty vice president "zinged" the uppity peasant. Put him in his place with a quick, cutting remark. That'll teach him. Imagine, making a suggestion to an elected official! That guy had some nerve, huh? Slam!

I thought the worker’s comment was much nicer than that of the VP.

But then I’m sane, and the VP is not.

Better a “smartass” than a dumbass dunce like *you*, Biden.
You’re a laughingstock who is sent on fools errands to keep you out of the way, and *still*, you manage to screw up and get in the news showing off what an imbecile you are, by sticking your *second* foot in your mouth as well!

Shall we come up with a special ice cream cone to mark Bidens visit.

How about a cone with no ice cream in it and it costs $5with an added VAT tax of 50 cents payable to the DNC.

Has there ever been a more elitist administration in this nation? The ‘Rat party prides itself in being the peoples’ party, yet these guys are hopelessly out of touch with the people. I can’t fathom why more than 50% of the electorate would vote for these arrogant twerps. Then to top off their elitist arrogance, they are incompetent to boot.

The description of the events cause me to doubt the veracity of this story.

When have liberal politicians ever insisted on dining out on their own dime?

This j*ck*ss Biden (and the rest of his ilk) need to reminded that he works for that store manager.

Ears, Plugs, Cankles, Fish Head - the whole damned cabal - they work for us, not the other way around. Yeah, they can extract taxes from us, but that’s a reflection of the “consent of the governed”, even as badly as the process has been distorted lately.

But the bottom line is it’s not Lord Biden and his subservient serfs. He’s supposed to serve us, and he needs to have that pointed out to him every bloody day (not that’ll do a whole lot of good).

Exactly. The REAL story here is not the crassness of Biden’s reply, but that he would consider the manager’s comment an insult in the first place. Why is being a “smart-ass” to use a moment when you have the ear of a high-office holder to ask for more control of your own money?

Yeah, the NYP doesn't have the slightest outrage. What a gang of schmucks the loathsome fools in the media are. If Bush or Palin did this, they would be labeled “hateful,””rude,” “or "out of touch.” Most of the press won't even report this, just like the Gore sex story. It's their side, after all.
