  • Biden: ‘President Clinton Bankrupted Chrysler’

    CBS Cleveland ^ | 11/5/12
    Another oops for Vice President Joe Biden. He’s mistakenly referred to “President Clinton” instead of “President Obama.” Biden told a crowd of 1,200 people at Lakewood High School Sunday that a Republican ad claiming Jeep will move jobs out of Ohio was “pernicious,” and a sign that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney is desperate to win the state. Biden says the ad claims “President Clinton bankrupted Chrysler so that Italians could buy it to ship jobs overseas to China.” Biden recently referred to Virginia’s Democratic Senate candidate Tim Kaine as “Tom” and complained to an Ohio audience about TV ads...

The incident occurred when "Five" co-host Eric Bolling mentioned that President Obama dislikes presumptive GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

    Here is video of President Obama having trouble with the word “superfluous” as he spoke to a group of Kennedy Center Honorees. Notice he also read his script/teleprompter wrong as he began that sentence. He first read the quote as, “Too many people,” but corrected it with, “To many people…..” I could not see a teleprompter in the shot, but there could have been one in the back of the room.

    Biden riles the crowd: 'You’re the dullest audience I’ve ever spoken to' By Jordan Fabian - 10/07/10 02:48 PM ET Vice President Joe Biden got a laugh from his audience at a Wisconsin fundraising event Thursday when he tried to rile the crowd about the economic collapse of 2008. “We want to reward people who manufacture things in the United States, in Wisconsin, not to take them overseas to China and to other countries!” he said to a silent room at the event for Democratic gubernatorial nominee Tom Barrett, according to a White House pool report.

    Examiner.com ^ | October 6, 2010 | Marc Schenker
    Notorious Democrat gaffe machine Joe Biden (and also current vice president) says he wants to strangle Republicans who have the nerve to tell him about balancing the federal budget. Biden was blurting out at a Democrat fundraising event in Dayton, Minnesota, late yesterday when he "let slip" a desire that many would see as being beneath the office of the vice president. Biden is notorious for unloading such gaffes, and he is certainly more known—in a very disreputable light—for what he lets slip out of his mouth than for anything that he’s actually accomplished as vice president in almost two...

    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.

The two were eating custard there, and when Biden approached the manager with some money and asked, “What do I owe you,” the manager just responded, “Lower our taxes and we’ll call it even.”Biden later jokingly called the manager a “smart-ass,” telling him, “Why don’t you say something nice?”Biden was clearly not expecting that!

    Hillary Clinton, the US Secretary of State, has been left red faced after mistakenly sending a birthday message to the Queen a week early. An official statement from the US foreign policy chief paid tribute to the "Queen’s life and legacy,” despite the fact that the Monarch does not celebrate her official birthday until next weekend. The diplomatic faux pas, sent on behalf of President Barack Obama and the American people on Friday, also celebrated the "special relationship" between the British and US governments.

Getting the vote wrong on such an historic vote is a once-in-a-lifetime mistake, right? Alas, no it is not, for lightening appears have struck twice for the Nevada Senator. Or to quote an unidentified clerk picked up by a nearby microphone, “he did it again!"

    Officials: President Obama reconsidering July 4 invitations to Iran Posted: 12:23 PM ET From CNN State Department Producer Elise Labott WASHINGTON (CNN) – The Obama administration is seriously considering not extending invitations to Iranian diplomats for July 4 celebrations overseas, senior administration officials tell CNN. The officials said intense discussions on the issue were taking place, but the final decision had not been made. Late last month the State Department sent a cable to its embassies and consulates worldwide informing them they "may invite representatives from the government of Iran" to their July 4th celebrations. The U.S. receptions marking Independence...

    President Obama is so busy these days dealing with pressing foreign policy issues like Iran and North Korea, that he can't seem to tell his right from his left. After holding a bilateral meeting in the Oval office with South Korean President Lee Myung-bak, the two leaders walked out to the Rose Garden podiums. That's when the left-right two-step happened. Mr. Obama took his place behind the right podium, leaving President Lee a bit confused. He smiled as Obama realized the mistake and switched to the left podium. That oops moment alone wouldn't have deserved a write-up, but for the...

    Oops! Such a reaction would be adequate if you locked yourself out of your car. It happens to most of us at one time or another. However, it is woefully inadequate as a response when you blow nearly $800 billion of taxpayers money on a government program that failed completely. Such was the response of VP Joe Biden on Meet The Press yesterday when he said that "everyone guessed wrong" on the economic stimulus package.Oops!And now the DUmmies are upset that Biden said this out in the open where it is sure to hurt their Beloved Barack bigtime as...

    Foes of the global jihad are constantly accused of quoting the Qur'an "out of context," but when Barack Obama actually did so in Cairo yesterday, no one seems to have minded. He quoted one Qur'an verse in connection with speaking of our shared interests as human beings: As the Holy Koran tells us, "Be conscious of God and speak always the truth." That is what I will try to do – to speak the truth as best I can, humbled by the task before us, and firm in my belief that the interests we share as human beings are far...
  • Video: Barack Gets Rebuffed on Saudi Welcome Line (Embarassing indeed!)

    Today POTUS, or PrezBO as I like to call him, paid his first visit in the Middle East this week to Saudi Arabia. This video from a bit of him on the "Welcome Line" with King Abdullah CLEARLY shows that few there want to acknowledge him on that line. Watch in slow motion that Barack clearly extends his hands several times, yet nobody accepts his hand. He finally does get a response from the last ma More..n in this brief clip. I've recorded it in slow motion so you can clearly see that he gets no love from the first...

    The federal government mistakenly made public a 266-page report, its pages marked “highly confidential,” that gives detailed information about hundreds of the nation’s civilian nuclear sites and programs, including maps showing the precise locations of stockpiles of fuel for nuclear weapons. The publication of the document was revealed Monday in an on-line newsletter devoted to issues of federal secrecy. That publicity set off a debate among nuclear experts about what dangers, if any, the disclosures posed. It also prompted a flurry of investigations in Washington into why the document was made public. On Tuesday evening, after inquiries from The New...

    Vice President Biden is about to find out how well his boss can take a joke. The vice president razzed the commander-in-chief Wednesday while speaking at the Air Force Academy commencement ceremony in Colorado, poking fun at President Obama's known affinity for his Teleprompter. Biden made the crack about Obama's crutch after a strong gust of wind blew over one of the vice president's Teleprompters. Biden was talking about Colorado's thin air at the time and when he heard the crash, he added, "and the strong winds." Then he said: "What am I gonna tell the president when I tell...
