Joe Biden update: He speaks of July 4th in Iraq
LA Times Blog ^ | 7/4/2010 | Joe Biden

Posted on 07/04/2010 8:46:42 PM PDT by CharlesWayneCT

Joe Biden makes a fool of himself again, trying to make a joke:

THE VICE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much, Mr. Ambassador. Let me begin by saying, Mr. President, it’s great to see you again, and all of my friends; Mr. Minister. So many of you I’ve known for so long.

I came once again with a distinguished American delegation, because they don’t trust me alone. (Laughter.)

Because they know I like you too much.

I have no idea what he was trying to make fun of. Who is it that he "likes too much"? The ambassador? The people of Iraq? The troops?

And why would he need a distinguished American Delegation to counter his liking Iraq? Is he joking that they are there to make sure he doesn't defect?

It seems he's making a North Korean joke, telling Iraq that he has handlers with him to make sure he doesn't defect to their country. That certainly is not funny to a country that just had a war to get out from under a dictator who killed hundreds of thousands of them.

However, it's funny that everybody laughed before the punch line, knowing that Biden would need handlers because he says stupid things all the time -- as witnessed by his next statement.

Did he think he would get the gratifying response W got? I know everyone here remembers when W made his unscheduled visits to the troops how enthusiastically the troops greeted him.

What the heck was “our military is a failure” bidensole thinking he would accomplish?

The dude is a d!ckhead and this is more d!ckheadedness on display.

This clown is all over the map.

all of you know it requires great sacrifice and the willingness to subordinate your individual interest to the communal good. First he revers in freedom and then Communal good.

Bidens personal draft?

I spoke with Joe Biden's son Beau today. He is the current Delaware AG. He recently had a minor stroke. Many believe that the 70+ year-old RINO running for his father's old senate seat is simply holding Biden's seat until the political climate becomes more favorable for a Dem.

He’s being Joe don’t ya know.
I am sick of him, for heaven’s wonder he is the Vice President of the United States and every time he speaks he makes some stupid mistake.
Perhaps old age has caught up with him. No excuses this man is not qualified to be in the position he is in now. But there are so many in this crowd that aren’t qualified and yet we go on.
November Vote

His speech is full of things that make me scream "idiot".

The creation of the United States was a conscious, a deliberately conscious act to bring liberty and prosperity to all people in the world.

Our founders could have cared less about bringing "liberty and prosperity to all people in the world". They cared about one thing -- freeing America from the tyranny of King George. No way they cared about the prosperity of Great Briton, or any of the other countries.

I didn't ask him that. Joe is a liberal idiot. His son may or may not be an idiot. But he is certainly a liberal. I thanked him for his service in Iraq but I sure as hell don't want to see him as a U.S Senator.

His speech is full of nonsense, including incomplete sentences, thoughts randomly pasted together, and contradictions.

As I’ve traveled around the world on our Fourth of July, many leaders of other countries assume we celebrate the Fourth of July because of our victory over the British in the Revolutionary War. But that They made a universal statement, applying to all mankind. They said, “We hold these truths self-evident, that all men are created equal, endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, among them, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” free of any king or potentate, free of any foreign government.

The sentence "But that They made" isn't a sentence at all, and the "but" doesn't make sense in context; at least it's nice to know that foreign leaders knew we fought Great Briton, unlike apparently a fourth of Americans.

And our inalienable rights aren't just free of "any king or any foreign government" -- they are free of ALL governments. Our rights come not from government at all.

To an Iraqui politician, this is weakness.The kind you use to get what you want.

Biddy Biden is so out of context in Iraq, that he is worse than useless, in fact a liability to the team trying to aid Iraq in forming a geninely functional government.They certainly do not want to become LIKE Biddy Biden, thats for sure!

Like this nonsensical statement:

"As I said, I’ve met with all of you for many years, and hopefully you view me as I view you, as a personal friend. I just wanted to make it clear I’m not lecturing, I’m not imparting any great wisdom that you don’t already know."

This while trying to explain how somehow our declaration of independence is really about subordinating our individual liberty to the common collective:

"all of you know it requires great sacrifice and the willingness to subordinate your individual interest to the communal good."

Of course, Biden would never sacrifice HIS liberty for the common good; But his bastardization of the statement "united we stand" is pathetic and disgusting. We don't subordinate our liberty for the communal good, it is our individual liberty protected by a limited government that ensures the communal good.

But the concept of subordinating your individual interest is fundamental to the success of any nation.

Then there is the part where he lectures them not to just have democratically elected representatives, but to make sure that they rig the elections to ensure that the legislature is in the correct "proportions":

"What I’m about to say is the only thing that may border on sounding like I am lecturing. In my humble opinion, in order for you to achieve your goals, you must have all communities’ voices represented in this new government -- proportionately."

Of course, this from the man who said the only way for Iraq to be a country was to split it up into three countries.

To say these words on Independence day is ridiculous.

It goes against our very foundation.

One can surely frame it that way. The founding fathers certainly did make supreme personal sacrifices for the young nation. They expressed that sentiment by their actions. However, I don't recall them using language like this. This is the way that socialists speak. In fact, it is the way that Stalin, Hitler and Mao frequently spoke. I think the spirit of the founders tells us that we all should be ready to make personal sacrifices for our personal liberty and that of our children.

As far as 4th of July speeches go, Biden is a toilet scrubber non patriot Socialist. Toby Keith rocked tonight with Boston Pops. Toby Keith for Secretary of Defense baby!

To 13 - Actually, they, or at least some, did. Jefferson envisioned, with the United States setting the example, a shift to governments following the American template, especially among countries in Europe.

Dumba$$ is too kind a term for Old Joe. He needs a muzzle and a staitjacket. The rest of the family is no great shakes either (well considering the gene poool, it should come as no surprise). One son involved in a financial scam (allegedly). Rumors of drug use (even drug selling) have been around for yeard. And whatevr happened with his daughter’s run in with the police (Chicago, I think)? That got covered up pretty quick. Yeah, just like the Bush twins got treated./s
