Joe Biden. Really? Joe Biden?

As much as the left likes to attach George W for his speaking gaffs, Biden has quite a few of his own. Including the one tonight, that he and Obama “Share a Common Story” but I’ll get to that a little later. In the interim, here are some memorable quotes from Biden (disclosure: quotes could have arisen from Biden’s two prior aneurisms)

“There's less than 1 percent of the population of Iowa that is African American. There is probably less than 4 or 5 percent that are minorities. What is in Washington? So look, it goes back to what you start off with, what you're dealing with...." (Biden when responding on why DC schools perform worse than Iowa schools)

“You CANNOT go into a 7-11 or a Dunkin Donuts without an Indian accent."

“Here at home, when Americans were standing in long lines to give blood after the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, we squandered an obvious opportunity to make service a noble cause again, and rekindle an American spirit of community.”

I’ll be sure to have more that follow in the remaining weeks…

Back to what I was saying. Joe Biden and Barack Obama share very little of the same story. Let’s compare:

Obama: Elected to the Senate in 2005 at the age of 44
Biden: Elected to the Senate in 1972 at the age of 29

The story Obama has is of an outsider of Washington, whereas the story that Biden has, is someone who knows nothing other than Washington. In fact, Biden was shaped by Washington. How can Obama preach change, when is VP is the youngest person to be elected to the Senate in modern history?

Keep it simple people. Week after week we are waiting to find out who Barack Obama is, and he just threw us another curveball…

Great article! I know what you mean about Biden's wacky comments ... well, offensive may be the better term, but definitely waaaaaay wacky for a career politician! Ok, so we've got Obama (someone who is more interested in saying the "right" thing than doing the right thing) paired up with Biden (someone apparently incapable of knowing the difference!)

Um... yeah. Can you imaging those 2 representing us to the entire world? ... !!!!!!!!!!!!!

As for the D.C. schools comment ... well, I live in the D.C. suburbs. D.C. public schools are horrible. D.C. also spends the most $$ per student. (If another school district has surpassed them, it has been recent - I think they're still # 1 in spending)

My point about that is that the liberal idea of throwing money at a problem just never works. Come on... if it were that easy, America would have no problems. Biden chooses instead to make some smarmy comment about minorities being the problem? ... !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, and I'm also on Obama's email list. (I post his emails on my web site, and will resume after the convention.) Well, I recently received an email from Obama stating that at the convention they would finally tell their followers what their plan is.

Wow. I guess it takes a convention hall, a football stadium and a Grammy's style production to fit all that "planning" in there.

Lol, what has McCain been thinking by just leveling with us the entire time?
