Joe Biden: “J-O-B-S” is a three letter word

Posted by: ST on October 16, 2008 at 12:27 pm

Captain Gaffetastic strikes again:

With the economy floundering, Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., told Ohio voters today that he and Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., would focus on one specific issue that Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., has neglected.

“Look, John’s last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S,” the Democratic veep nominee said at a morning rally in Athens.

Heh. Personally, I think “OBIDEN” is a four-letter word :p

Semi-related: In not-so-surprising news, Obama apologist Andrew Sullivan tackles the tough issues of the day … by making fun of a bad photo Reuters (deliberately) took of McCain after last night’s debate.

You stay classy, Andrew.

    Well according to most of the verbiage coming from the mouths of both Biden and Ovomit……..B-S is One word. Does that clear up some of the new math?

    Wait’ll ya see the real numbers on his tax hikes and what passes for rich and poor.

    I was reading off the CNN ticker that they did a “fact check” on Biden’s proposal to partition Iraq. What a joke! Here’s a few portions of it.

    Sen. Biden co-authored an opinion piece in The New York Times on May 1, 2006, that proposed a five-point plan “decentralizing” Iraq, greatly beset at the time by civil warfare between Shiites and Sunni Arabs.

    Ahhh, decentralizing!! Which in no way would lead to complete genocide and ethnic cleansing like everyone thought it would.

    The column, also authored by Council on Foreign Relations President Emeritus Leslie H. Gelb, likened Iraq’s sectarian woes to those in Bosnia — “torn apart by ethnic cleansing and facing its demise as a single country” after the breakup of Yugoslavia last decade.

    Ahh, Bosnia!! Do we still have troops in Bosnia?? If it worked so well, when will the troops come home from Bosnia!!!

    Even the Iraqis knew it was a stupid idea from the start:

    Iraqi Leaders Opposed Biden’s Partition Plan

    Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, who called on the Iraqi parliament to meet and formally reject the Biden plan, immediately went on Iraqi television with a blistering statement: “[Biden] should stand by Iraq to solidify its unity and its sovereignty . . . [He] shouldn’t be proposing its division. That could be a disaster not just for Iraq but for the region.”

    The Sunni Association of Muslim Scholars also denounced the plan. “This is a dangerous partitioning based on sectarianism and ethnicity,” said Hashim Taie, a member of the Iraqi Accordance Front, the largest Sunni party in the parliament.

    “For the first time in Iraq, all political blocs, decision makers and religious authorities agree on rejecting the [Biden] resolution that contradicts the will of the Iraqi people.”

    Hey the democrats really CAN unite people!!! Ahh, but what do those wacky Iraqis know, Joe Biden knows better!!!!

    What was CNN’s fact checker verdict???

    The Verdict:

    False. Biden proposed decentralizing Iraq’s government, but not breaking up the country.

    Congrats CNN, you serve your masters at the DNC well.

    Well, we do know that Mr Sullivan is very concerned about other men’s looks! :d

    According to Obama and Biden – Socialism is spelled – USA.

    Or that’s at least the way they intend to spell it if elected – G-D Help Us!

  5. Mike Crawford says:

    Joe Biden has said that it is patriotic to pay more taxes. In the debate he said, “they don’t call it redistribution of wealth where I come from they call it fairness. Barack Obama says we need to spread the wealth around. Yet, based on his tax returns, in the last 10 years Joe Biden’s average daily income was $673 of which he spread the wealth around by giving $1 a day to charity. In the five years before he announced his candidacy for president Barack Obama’s average income was $673 a day of which he gave $5.89 a day to charity. Hypocrites.

  6. Stuart Melnick says:

    It really is time for McCain to play the race card. Obama has done it throughout — and with complete impunity. If playing the race card is what it takes to keep this dangerous charlatan out of the White House, so be it.

    Biden = 2008 Dan Quayle
