Joe “Smartass” Biden, our delusional VP

A long-known sufferer of chronic Foot In Mouth disease and Rectal-Cranial Inversion, Joe “Smartass” Biden was probably the ideal choice for Vice President. He can say the stupidest things (which his boss generally agrees with) and everyone just shrugs and attributes these absurdities to his disabilities. Oh well, that’s just Joe – you know how he is. Uh, yeah, but he’s the bloody Vice President for cripes sake – second in line to the presidency. Sheeesh…

At a recent fundraiser in NY, Biden claimed that the democrats would “keep the senate and win in the house.” (story here) Because, you know, they have to keep hammering the economy into submission.

“We’ve done a lot in the last 20 months,” VPOTUS said. “The economy has grown four quarters in a row, not what it needs to, but it’s growing, it’s not shrinking. Just since January, 860,000 private sector jobs, not nearly enough. But guess what? That’s more jobs than were created in the entire eight years of the Bush Administration. That’s factual.”

[Biden] predicted the federal government will grind to a halt if the House or Senate fall under GOP control. He predicted Democrats would “keep the Senate and win the House.”

Hey Joe, put down the crack pipe – the dems are going to get slaughtered.

The money quote from Biden was this gem:

“Every single great idea that has marked the 21st century, the 20th century and the 19th century has required government vision and government incentive,” he said. “In the middle of the Civil War you had a guy named Lincoln paying people $16,000 for every 40 miles of track they laid across the continental United States….No private enterprise would have done that for another 35 years.”

Huh? WTF? Are you kidding me? “Government vision” is an oxymoron. “Government incentive” is not only the ultimate oxymoron but when uttered in the same sentence with “great idea” is tantamount to blasphemy. Matt Welch over at Reason Magazine sums it up nicely:

What was the “government vision and government incentive” that produced the assembly line? Motion-picture film? Air conditioning? The electric guitar? How about the personal computer? The mobile phone? Non-violent resistance? Aspirin?

Though Biden is generally not to be taken seriously, the government-centrism of his comments are an accurate reflection of his boss, and part of the reason why next Tuesday is going to be an awkward day of work at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

We can’t get rid of this clown soon enough. What an embarrassment…
