VP Joe Biden: ‘I Promise You Obama Has A Big Stick’
Mediaite ^ | April 26, 2012 | Noah Rothman

Posted on 04/26/2012 10:44:12 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Vice President Joe Biden apparently did not catch the potential double meaning when he paraphrased a famous Teddy Roosevelt quote on Wednesday when he said “I promise you, Obama has a big stick.” The audience, mostly comprised of New York University students, immediately got the joke.

Speaking before a group of NYU students on Thursday, Vice President Joe Biden praised President Barack Obama’s role as a commander-in-chief and touted the president’s numerous successes in foreign policy and in the prosecution of anti-terror efforts abroad.

Biden told the audience, invoking a variation on the famous quote by President Teddy Roosevelt, “I promise you, Obama has a big stick.” But the audience apparently picked up on the statement’s inherent double entandre more than the historical reference when they devolved into laughs.

Psst! Joe, read the prompter...that’s “took a big $hit! not “has a big stick.”

Judging by how he reacts to criticism, I think Obama’s big stick is up his butt...

There is nothing funny about elected officials speaking indecently. It’s intitutionalizing immorality.

What was every evil tyrant, first and foremost ? Immoral.

Through the Democratic party, atheists and communists are turning our government into an immoral tyrannical regime.

Biden is telling the young college students (the future leaders of society) that vulgarity is good and that having some sense of decorum, i.e., a Vice President giving a speech, is no longer expected. By making a sexual innuendo joke, he is telling them that the immoral lifestyle of fornication is fine; that’s what’s expected of them, that’s how America operates. We fornicate the day away.

Galatians 6:7

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

Biden is like a court jester doing his best to distract the audience with a chicken dance on the deck of the Titanic and all the lifeboats have already sailed.

Dan Quayle’s misspelled potato pales in comparison to Biden’s shtick. Let’s see if the media sticks it to him.

I think you're giving Clueless Joe credit for more brains than he has.

I don't think he was making a joke.

He just didn't realize that people would take it as one.

Why do you think it was an accident? I’ll bet the WH speechwriters labored long and hard on that line. Probably brought in professional help from one of the tv gag writing shops. They think it’s perfectly targeted at a couple of Zero’s key electoral demographics.

They’ll probably have big stick campaign buttons out soon.

That sterotype is no longer true; however. Back in the day when all the African slave genes and DNA was rampant in Blacks in America, yes. But, today, nah. The sterotype no longer holds true. I’ve had a health club membership since 1985; taken many showers in public shower; so trust me on this one. Very few Mandingos around.

‘How do you think Plugs got the job ? I’ll bet he swallowed, too.”

Hillary wouldn’t, but Plugs did.

“Joe has seen it? Eww.”

See above for that answer.

According to some whispers around Chicago Obama does appreciate oral attention from middle aged white men But I never thought of Joe in that context.
