  • The midterms: Biden calls his shot

    At a fundraiser for Barbara Mikulski in Maryland, Vice President Biden said: “Maybe the best thing to happen to us lately is the Tea Party wins. Maybe it’ll shake some of our constituency out of their lethargy.” And he guaranteed Dems hold the House: “I guarantee you we’re going to have a majority in the House and a majority in the Senate. I absolutely believe that."

    While recently assuring that election night is going to be rosier for Democrats than most people think Biden had this to say about the alternative to Democrats growth of government and previously unachieved trillion dollar deficits "They are going to look at what the Republican Party is really offering -- more of the past, but on steroids..." ....Ummmm....In the past we spent less money, had less debt, and more jobs...even if we put all three of these on steriods the GOP's batting average would be .333 points better than how the Dems are currently doing.

  • Somehow, Joe Biden fails to mention Robin Carnahan

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch ^ | August 21, 2010 | TONY MESSENGER
    Missouri's secretary of state, Carnahan is running for U.S. Senate in one of the most high-profile races in the nation. She faces an uphill battle against seven-term Congressman Roy Blunt, a well-funded Republican from Springfield who has a clear lead in most polls. But before Biden took the stage, neither of them mentioned the one Democrat — Carnahan — who is so integral to the party's chances of holding on to the U.S. Senate in November. Neither did Biden. The vice president was fired up. He all but guaranteed that Democrats would be the big winners on Nov. 3. "Were...

    Vice President Biden predicted Friday at a Pennsylvania fundraiser that the U.S. economy would be adding up to 500,000 jobs each month "some time in the next couple of months." "All in all we're going to be creating somewhere between 100[,000] and 200,000 jobs next month, I predict," Biden said, according to a pool report, adding that he "got in trouble" for a job growth prediction last month. "Even some in the White House said, 'Hey, don't get ahead of yourself.' Well, I'm here to tell you, some time in the next couple of months, we're going to be creating...

And there shouldn’t have been one.” Oh, but there was. Passengers were stuck for anywhere from 45 minutes to four hours as a...

    BAGHDAD (AP) -- Vice President Joe Biden landed Saturday on what appeared to be a dual mission in Baghdad: to visit U.S. troops during the July Fourth weekend and coax Iraqi leaders into ending their government impasse. Top Obama administration officials have been reluctant to visit Iraq since its deadlocked March election failed to produce a clear winner. Biden's trip may signal the U.S. is stepping up its efforts to hammer out an agreement among Iraqi political rivals and get a new government in place as soon as possible.

    CLEVELAND (AP) -- In a campaign stop for a nominee for U.S. Senate, Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday that Democrats may be vulnerable in the summer but voters will look at contrasts in the fall. "This is not about the next election," Biden told about 200 people at a fundraising lunch for Democrat Lee Fisher at the Great Lakes Science Center. "This is about the next generation." Biden, noting the science center overlooking Lake Erie, also said "Republicans don't believe in science. Read more:

    Vice President Biden is out with an alarmed e-mail cash appeal warning that the GOP will mount a “blitzkrieg” against Democrats in the fall. Comparing GOP tactics to the fast-striking forces of Nazi Germany, Biden warns in a message sent by the DCCC today: “As things heat up, you can expect House Democrats will be hit with a GOP blitzkrieg of vicious Swift-Boat-style attack ads, Karl Rove-inspired knockout tactics, thinly veiled attempts at character assassination and tea party disruptions.” And while the GOP is mounting a blitzkrieg, Democrats are the allies. “Our Democratic allies in the House need your help,...

    Before Barack Obama won the Democratic nomination in 2008, Joe Biden was widely acknowledged as the Gaffemaster of his party. And if one defines a gaffe as the accidental disclosure of an embarrassing political truth, then the Vice President managed to maintain his reputation this weekend. When addressing a fundraiser for embattled incumbent Senator Russ Feingold in Milwaukee, Biden told an audience to get used to high unemployment, because the jobs lost in the recession aren’t coming back: Vice President Joe Biden gave a stark assessment of the economy today, telling an audience of supporters, “there’s no possibility to restore...

    Senator Biden was the first questioner. Instead of the softball questions he’d promised to ask, he threw a beanball straight at my head, quoting from a speech I’d given four years earlier at the Pacific Legal Foundation and challenging me to defend what I’d said. ”I find attractive the arguments of scholars such as Stephen Macedo, who defend an activist Supreme Court that would strike down laws restricting property rights.” That caught me off guard, and I had no recollection of making so atypical a statement, which shook me up even more. “Now, it would seem to me what you...

We are waiting to hear news on if he is okay but it has to be said… everytime I am forced to listen to Biden, I do the same thing. Or perhaps, he got a look at the latest budget numbers. I have to point out that Biden’s comment right after the “spell”, and while the poor man was still on the floor was, “Ladies and Gentlemen, that’s...
