    Catholics as Terrorists – An Observation 

    So apparently according to new military training manuals, Catholics are now potential terrorists.  If this is truly the case, why in heavens name are we not having impeachment hearings on Vice President Joe Biden or Minority Leader Nanny Pelosi?

    “as an ardent, practicing Catholic,”  Nanny Pelosi

    ‘I get comfort from carrying my rosary, going to mass every Sunday. It’s my time alone,’ VP Biden

    Quote of the Day – Joe Biden Edition Part 5 

    “The are no longer traumatized by what was a traumatizing event, the great collapse of 2008. “They are no longer worried, I think, about our economy being overwhelmed either by Europe writ large, the EU, or China somehow swallowing up every bit of innovation that exists in the world. They are no longer, I think, worried about our economy being overwhelmed beyond our shores. But, and I don’t think … there is very little doubt in any circles out there about America’s ability to be in position to lead the world in the 21st century. Not only in terms of our foreign policy, our incredible defense establishment, but economically.”

    What world does this man live in?  I know very few people who are not worried about the economy.  Even when I was living outside of D.C., where the economy is relatively good.

      “Twit ?” Jacg, you are so generous today !

      Listen to him; it`s as though he`s convinced of the “zero sum gain” notion of the typical libtard that the economy is like and limited to one pie and one pie only. As Mooch said, “Someone has to give up a piece of the pie for someone else to have more”. NO, you “Twit” !!!!! If the economy is cooking along normally, you simply bake another pie ! Wealth is created, not re-distributed so everyone has some.

      Twits, Indeed !!

    About Those Values, Mr. Vice President 

    This truly cannot be said enough so I decided to cover this information again.  Last month Vice President Biden made the following comment:

    “And, by the way, I’ve been saying this for 30 years. And I’m glad to see that Congressman Ryan likes his dad, too, and quotes his dad. I mean that sincerely. But my dad [had] a lot of wisdom. Every time someone tells you, say, ‘Look, let me tell you what’s important to me, what I value.’ My dad would go, ‘No, no. Don’t tell me what you value. Show me your budget, and I will tell you what you value.’”

    So lets take a look at how The Vice President values charity:

    Adjusted
    Gross Income              Charity

    1998             $215,432                      $195

    1999             $210,797                      $120

    2000             $219,953                      $360

    2001             $220,712                      $360

    2002             $227,811                      $260

    2003             $231,375                      $260

    2004             $234,271                      $380

    2005             $321,379                      $380

    2006             $248,459                      $380

    2007             $319,853                      $995

    2008              $269,256                      $1885

    2009               $333,182                      $4820

    2010                $379,178                     $5350

    2011                 $379,035                     $5540

    Total             $3,810,693                    $21,285

    For a grand total of .005%

    The average for the Romney family is 13.45%.

    So what is it that you value Mr. Vice President?  It certainly isn’t charitable giving.

    The Obama’s were very stingy with charitable giving as well, that is until he decided to run for public office on the federal level.  They could afford a $2 million home, but not too much for charity.  I hope that his charitable giving stays at current levels or increases once he leaves the presidency, as he will be making millions and millions per year once he does.

      You do know, right, that VP Biden is the least wealthy member of Congress?
      You do realize right, that unlike many other members of Congress, Mr. Biden has always turned down paying board/consultancy jobs, and as a result, his salary constitutes the majority of his income?

      As far as I can recall, his only external income was from his book.
      Discounting the value of his home, Mr. Biden actually is still in debt.

      Funny you should criticize Mr. Obama, when his charitable record has been steadily increasing over the years, and who, while wealthy, still have to work to pay his bills.

      Especially when you consider the fact that Mr. Romney’s record of charity is only seen from his last two partial filings (yes, partial, because he omitted the release of the details of his 21 – at least – blocker corporations/form – and we know these corporations exist because he did not file the 990-T), and no one knows how much he actually gave to charity prior to his presidential bid. Even his trustee acknowledged that his 2011 filings were engineered to fulfill an earlier announced objective.

      • just a conservative girl 2:49 PM on 09/24/2012 Permalink | Reply

        yes because when you make only $200K per year you are the “least wealthy”. Did you read that after you typed it? You are justifying him giving $195 out of a salary of $215 because other members in congress make more than he does. He lives in DE. The cost of living is not that high.

        He is well below average for charitable giving. The majority of the country (who generally will make far less then him) gives much more in Charity than the Bidens. As soon as he is done with the Vice Presidency, he will go back to giving next to nothing again.

        That is who is he is. He would rather that the government take money from you and I to help the needy. He has little desire to do it for himself.

    • MS 7:53 AM on 09/25/2012 Permalink | Reply

      Indeed. In his social circle, Mr. Biden is effectively a pauper. He even took loans to pay for his children’s education when he could have easily accepted one of the many paying jobs that members of Congress are routinely offered (and accepts).

      Instead of sitting on your high horse and arbitrarily making judgements about the ‘values’ of others, and conveniently ignoring his and his wife’s volunteer work over the years and service to the nation, I have a question for you.

      What values were you, along with the majority of your party members, exhibiting as you watched in silence as a segment of your base go on a four-year character assassination campaign against Mr. Obama? What kind of value does it show when you dispute the identity of his father, the morals of his mother, his childhood memories/history, his allegiance to the country, his religious belief, his education – all without a single piece of credible evidence, and in the face of a ton of evidence to the contrary?

      While we’re on the subject of values, how do you feel of the government sanctioned torture of innocent Iraqis and Afghans? What do you feel about our soldiers and contractors smashing the feet of a taxi driver (as his mother and three sisters stood outside the prison) until he died from shock? The doctor who conducted the autopsy said his feet looked like it was run over by a truck.

      What about the man who had his penis sliced dozens of times in one of the famous rendition exercise, until the doctor who did his autopsy said it looked looked like butchered meat?

      Things became so bad, even the military prosecutors assigned to Guantanamo resigned after seeing the level of torture we inflicted on innocents, whose only crime was that they were easy fodder for the warlords to sell to the American forces (at $5,000 each). Even Rumsfeld had to resigned after the German threw a fit after receiving a batch of evidence (including, reportedly though unconfirmed, a video of an interrogation). Until today, Mr. Bush, Mr. Cheney and Mr. Rumsfeld have to remain cautious of their travel arrangement as several countries are eager to arrest them for war crimes.

      Where are your values here? Why are none of you demanding justice for these people, or holding the guilty responsible? Instead, you pick on the poorest member of Congress to show your values.

      Col Lawrence Wilkerson, the former chief of staff to former Secretary of State Colin Powell, had this to say about the matter.
      ” You compare Bill Clinton’s peccadilloes for which he was impeached to George Bush’s high crimes and misdemeanors or Dick Cheney’s high crimes and misdemeanors, and I think they pale in significance.”

      You should read Col. WIlkerson’s court affidavit – which no one from the Bush administration had dared to challenge – and then speak about values again.
      http://www.bollyn.com/public/Wilkerson.pdf

      • just a conservative girl 8:11 AM on 09/25/2012 Permalink | Reply

        Yes because all paupers make $200K per year. That is five times the national average. Millions upon millions in this country wish they were that poor.

        Speaking of rendition, where you were when Clinton started the practice? Where are you that Obama is continuing the practice? I have spoken out about it from day one. Waterboarding is nothing compared to what happens to people when we leave it up to countries who could care less about human rights.

        As usual you confuse issues to try and take away from the issue at hand. Biden is a cheap. He holds unto his money, but spends ours like it is going out of style. There is nothing moral about putting our children into some much debt that their quality of life will be lower.

        I have spoken out about the spending regardless of party. You, on the other hand, seem to have no problem with Obama continuing the practices in Afghanistan. He has even picked up the level of drone strikes. Killing al-Awaki without any due process was unconstitutional. The man was an American citizen and his rights were violated. So when you start screaming about it when it comes from both sides, I suggest you ask yourself why your outrage is only when it someone you don’t agree with is in office.

        I could care less about the republican party. I care about my principles. You should try it.

    • MS 2:01 PM on 09/25/2012 Permalink | Reply

      So let me get this straight.
      Mr. Biden’s honorable decision of rejecting private sector positions and monetary gains should be completely discounted, and instead, we should judge his ‘values’ solely based upon the amount of money he donated, regardless of the fact that that may very well be all that he could afford? Nevermind his distinguished public service career and volunteer works.

      As for rendition, it was an unofficial practice that first came into being during the Reagan administration, and subsequently put into law during the administration of former President George H.W. Bush. However, it took a turn for the worse when it devolved from a strategic tool to something sinister when the George W. Bush administration green-lighted the torture of suspects, many of them who were sold to American forces by its ‘allies’.

      And the extent of the torture goes far, far, beyond waterboarding, as I have previously indicated. There are other documented cases of tortures as well – truly horrifying torture that brings into question the sanity of the people conducting them. I was traumatized just reading about the inhuman brutalities these people were subjected to.

      As for Mr. Biden spending ‘your money’, please do not confuse rhetoric with facts. I continue to hear charges that President Obama increased our debts by a further $5 trillion dollars with his reckless spending. But here are the facts: under the Obama administration, the federal government has shrunk for the first time in 50 years. The growth of federal spending is also the lowest in over 50 years. So where did the $5 trillion come from?

      Well, $1.2 trillion came from former President George W. Bush’s last budget. Another trillion came from the two unpaid wars in Afghanistan and Iraq (btw, these two wars were the first time the United States has entered into a war without raising its taxes to pay for it). Another $800 billion (approx) came from welfare net to protect the ten million new jobless Americans (almost five million in President Bush last year in office, and over for million in President Obama’s first year in office). The automatic stabilizers also kicked in 2009 to prevent a systemic national economic collapse. There is also the interest payments for the debts incurred by previous administrations.

      The only major spending President Obama was responsible for, the January 2009 $800 billion stimulus (ARRA), immediately stopped the job market crash. (http://static8.businessinsider.com/image/4bb614577f8b9a1667ae0100/chart-020510-update.jpg)

      As for drone killings, murder is murder, and should always be avoided. However, if there is a need to engage enemy combatant, then using a drone is always preferable to using our soldiers.

      As for al-Awlaki, a high-ranking al-Qaeda operative with dual citizenship (Yemeni and U.S.), you do realize that he has declared a holy war on the United States and was declared an enemy combatant long before his death? He was an American in name only. His allegiance has long shifted, and he was actively involved in terrorist activities. While still in U.S., he was also linked to Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the soldier who killed 13 people at Fort Hood.

      Listen to him making the declaration: http://youtu.be/zhjD5J1KC8Q

      “America was my home. I was a preacher of Islam involved in non-violent Islamic activism. However with the American invasion of Iraq and continued U.S. aggression against Muslims, I could not reconcile between living in the U.S. and being a Muslim, and I eventually came to the conclusion that jihad against America is binding upon myself just as it is binding on every other Muslim.”

      How do you even begin to defend him, I do not understand. For the record though. the kill order was made by the CIA, and was approved by the NSC, ODNI, and Senate Committee on Homeland Security. Only after that was it sent to the White House for final approval. Considering the legal steps taken here, how could you say it was unconstitutional? Even the judge who presided over al-Awlaki’s father lawsuit makes no mention of it being unconstitutional.

      (https://ecf.dcd.uscourts.gov/cgi-bin/show_public_doc?2010cv1469-31)
      “Here, plaintiff asks this Court to do exactly what the D.C. Circuit forbid in El-Shifa — assess the merits of the President’s (alleged) decision to launch an attack on a foreign target. Although the “foreign target” happens to be a U.S. citizen, the same reasons that counseled against judicial resolution of the plaintiffs’ claims in El-Shifa apply with equal force here. Just as in El-Shifa, any judicial determination as to the propriety of a military attack on Anwar Al-Aulaqi would “‘require this court to elucidate the . . . standards that are to guide a President when he evaluates the veracity of military intelligence.

      Indeed, that is just what plaintiff has asked this Court to do. See Compl., Prayer for Relief (d) (requesting that the Court order the defendants to “disclose the criteria used in determining whether the government will carry out the targeted killing of a U.S. citizen”). But there are no judicially manageable standards by which courts can endeavor to assess the President’s interpretation of military intelligence and his resulting decision — based on that intelligence — whether to use military force against a terrorist target overseas.”

      Finally, on your claim of not caring about the Republican Party and following your principles. Look at your posting history. You are, for all intents and purpose, a cheerleader for the GOP. If you truly are guided by your principles, then you should be fair in your criticisms, questions, and commentary.

      You should question why Mr. Romney is so secretive about his tax returns. You should ask why his office shredded thousands of documents when he left the office of Governor of Massachusetts. You should ask why the Heritage Foundation did a 180% turn on individual mandates within the space of less than a year (yes, they were actively supporting individual mandates up to 2007). You should question why Mr. Romney’s small donors only constitute 14% of his donor base, and why his campaign is being financed by a small group of wealthy elites.

      You should also ask Mr. Ryan why, after four years, his multiple budget proposals still do not contain details of budget cuts. Or how he intends to give tax cuts worth accumulatively over $5 trillion, and an increase of $2 trillion in defense spending, yet still fully balancing the budget.

      Finally, you should also ask why tax cuts/trickle down economic, a concept that has no documented, empirical economic merits, continues to be the central dogma of the GOP economic policy.

      Once you do these and more, then you climb on your high horse and question me about my principles.

      You see, truth is not easy, and is not kind.

      • just a conservative girl 4:18 PM on 09/25/2012 Permalink | Reply

        First, who did I vote for in 2000? It wasn’t President Bush. I started no wars. I was against going into Iraq. You keep up bringing up party. I don’t care which party does the spending, I want it stopped so the next generation has a chance to live in country with the same chance to fulfill their dreams as the people who came before them.

        I will go after people who are republicans. I don’t care what party they come. It means nothing to me. President Obama has done more deficit spending than any other president in history. That is a fact, it can’t be disputed. The gravy train is over. We can’t keep spending money we don’t have and expect our kids and grandchildren to have a decent shot at a future. $1.293 trillion in 2010, $1.300 trillion in 2011, $1.327 trillion in 2012, and $901 billion in 2013. No other president has ever spent a trillion dollars of borrowed money in one year. He did three times. He also added to Bush’s spending on 09 with a stimulus that had little effect on the economy. The recession technically ended in June of 09. None of the money was spent before then. Deficit spending actually went down under Bush. Money into the treasury increased for the majority of his presidency. Another fact that the left likes to forget about.

        If a democrat is running who is a fiscal hawk, I will vote for him/her. I have voted for many democrats over the course of my life. We cannot sustain 47% of people not paying taxes in this country for much longer. We need to flatten the rates and get rid of the loopholes. My taxes will increase by doing that and I am perfectly fine with that. What I want in return for my higher taxes is a more responsible government that isn’t throwing my money away willy nilly. It is criminal the amount of waste our government allows to occur.

        People don’t have citizenship “in name only”, they are citizens or they are not. It is a legal thing, not a state of mind. They had plenty of time to go into a court to have him stripped of citizenship and did not. The same thing with Adam Ghadhan. No American citizen should ever be put on a hit list without having due process in court. I don’t care what they have done. The fact that al-Awaki made all those videos declaring his intention to wage war on the US and its citizens made the fact that they didn’t go into court worse, not better. They clearly had the evidence to back up the government claims. The constitution doesn’t cover some people, it covers all Americans. Plenty of people in this country do horrific things, they still have the right to due process. What is stopping them from putting you or I on a hit list then? Closing your eyes or making excuses about allowing the federal government to kill someone without due process is a slippery slope that no one should be wanting to go down.

        I could care less about Romney’s tax returns, I don’t care about anyone’s tax returns, I think it is stupid that they are released by anyone. I also could care less that he has money in foreign investments. Until recently I had some of retirement savings in foreign investments. I took them out because it seems more likely then not the Euro is going to go south. Many people across the country have investments in foreign countries. It is actually a good strategy generally, especially considering that many foreign currencies are stronger than ours at the moment. Where he puts his money is his business. As long as he claims it on his tax returns and pays the taxes that are legally due, it means nothing. Most 401K’s in this country have options for foreign investments, why should you and I be allowed to partake in them, but someone who is running for president not be able to?

        If someone can’t live on $200K per year, there is a problem. People who make far less money give more of a percentage of their salary to charity. I gave a larger percentage of my income to charity when I was in college and living hand to mouth. It is something that I have always believed in, If he couldn’t “afford it” in the year before he was tapped as VP, why could he all of sudden afford it? He gave it because of how it looked. The man owns a home that is worth several million dollars. He isn’t poor by any stretch of the imagination.

        You do realize that our tax dollars are going to pay rent on his second home that he rented out to the secret service right? While it may be perfectly legal, it shouldn’t be. He shouldn’t be making money off secret service protection that we are paying for. I would say that no matter who they are.

    Chains, Politics, Race, and VP Biden 

    All the political chatter today is about Vice President Biden’s remark

    “put y’all back in chains”

    But let’s looks the entire quote in context

    “Romney wants to, he said in the first 100 days, he’s going to let the big banks once again write their own rules. Unchain Wall Street. They’re going to put y’all back in chains,”

    To me these look very different when taken in full context.  He was using a metaphor.  A poor one may be, but a metaphor just the same.

    Much has been made of the fact that this took place in Danville, Va which is a city that has a population of almost 49% black.  This is what I find offensive.  If he had said this in a city that had a population that is say only 8% black it would have been different?  You can see from the pictures of the event that the crowd was diverse.

    What I find so offensive is that what I am hearing in this uproar is that apparently we are supposed to change our language depending on who were are talking to.  Does that mean that I am supposed to create a blog for hispanic readers, another for whites, and yet another for blacks?  That I am supposed to change the language I use for the point I am trying to make depending on the skin color of the reader?  That is really offensive to me.

    Is what he said stupid?  Of course it is.  But in full context it wasn’t racist.

    I do believe that Biden has some preconceived notions of things.  I think many will remember that he once made a comment about Indians and 7-11’s.  The fact of the matter is that in the area that I live in you would be hard pressed to find a 7-11 that didn’t have employees that are not of Indian descent.  What he said is true, at least in this area of the country.  That may not be true everywhere, but here it is.  So is that racism/bigotry?  No, it isn’t.  Maybe it isn’t polite to point it out, but that is about political correctness, not racism.

    See I am no fan of how everything we say and do in this country has to fit into some preconceived notion of being politically correct.  Who is it that makes these rules?  Because we all know that they are different for different people.  Had Paul Ryan used the same words the likes of Roland Martin would be the first one to screaming and yelling it was indeed racist.  Whereas today he is saying that it isn’t.  For once I actually agree with him that it was not a racist statement.

    We need to get past all this PC nonsense and realize that using the metaphor of chains has nothing to do with slavery.  It is a commonly used metaphor that covers all kinds of things.  I am sick to death of everything being labeled “offensive” or “racist”.  It is no more attractive when it comes from the right then when it comes from the left.

    I dare anyone who disagrees with me on this to look me in the eye and tell me honestly that you wouldn’t feel that had the exact same scenario happened to a politician you agree with, you wouldn’t be defending it and saying it wasn’t racist and people were over-reacting.  If you can’t do that, then stop playing the same “racist” card that has been played on us for the past four years.

    Is VP Biden a gaffe machine?  Oh, yes.  He is not the smartest tool in the shed, that is for sure.  He also has a habit of changing his dialect up a little bit depending on the crowd he is front of.  Which is offensive.  But there is no proof that VP Biden is a racist and that this comment was nothing more than metaphor of a theme that the right has been using for the past two years, of unshackling the private sector.  Could he have used a different word than chain?  Yea maybe.  But why should he have?  At some point we have to get beyond this nonsense and stop equating everything to race and slavery.

    Take it away Joe:

     
    • fuzislippers 11:27 PM on 08/15/2012 Permalink | Reply

      I can look you in the eye and, in good conscience, assure you that if Romney or Ryan started acting like a fake preacher, drawling “ya’ll,” and talking about putting people in chains, I’d be just as outraged. You’re missing, though, what I think is a key point here. Ryan and Romney can talk about “chains” because that’s what they actually believe poverty and government’s attack on personal responsibility and wealth-creation to be. They don’t walk around thinking about race 24/7; they believe in America and Americans. No hyphens, no identity politics. And yes, I’d be stunned to hear either of them do as Biden, Obama, and Hillary Clinton do and talk down to southerners, blacks, midwesterners, et al. by adopting phony accents and trying to adopt the speech patterns of their audience. This is par for the course for the phony leftists. They think it’s “relating” to the audience; it’s not. It’s insulting and patronizing. And hilarious. Have you seen the vids of Hillary and Obama doing it? Laugh out loud funny.

      But if you can really listen to that comment (listen to it, not read it) and NOT hear the racial overtones, I’m just stunned. We’re talking about the party of racial division, a party built on racial identity. We’re talking about people who think morning, noon, and night about race. We’re talking about people who actually believe that conservatives have a secret “code” for talking about race. We’re talking about people who work to divide and strike fear in the hearts of Americans of all races, religions, and income brackets. We’re talking about Barack Obama’s vice president. And yes, I sincerely believe that he meant to evoke the chains of slavery BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT THEY DO.

        I don’t deny they play racial politics. But the important question becomes, did the audience that he was taking to in real time think it was racial? I don’t believe that they have spoken to those people. If they have, I have not seen it. In many instances things sound much differently to a person watching from a distance instead of being there. Howard Dean’s scream being a good example. The people in the room didn’t think it was a big deal. I remember watching that in real time on TV and being horrified.

        My main point being they play racial politics because it works for them. By us jumping on that bandwagon we are continuing the cycle. I agree that the dialect thing is awful and condescending. But, if the people they are speaking to don’t mind, and they don’t seem to, there isn’t a whole we can do about it.

        I just find it offensive that I would have to change what I say because of skin color. We should be able to have grown up conversations without it being broken down by skin color. If we can’t do that, then they have accomplished their goal of dividing us into groups. That is a terrifying proposition.

          This wasn’t some cozy little meeting behind closed doors. The audience to whom he was talking was national. It was televised. It was a campaign stop. This was intended to reinforce the RAAAACISM of republicans for a national audience, particularly to inflame the base and get some of the people who won’t vote to the polls. It was a strategy. And it was the same strategy these people always use: race-baiting, division, fear, hate.

          I’m not sure if you noticed, but they’ve already won that battle: Americans ARE divided into groups . . . by race, gender, sexual orientation, ideology, religion, income level, you name it. That’s done.

          What we have to do is win the war. And we won’t do that by insisting on “national dialogue” about race (or anything else) because that’s exactly what they want. In fact, that’s leftist language straight out of Alinsky designed to reinforce the division, not eliminate it. Every “dialogue” the left engages is in designed to do this; that’s why the more they “help” the poor, the more poor we get; the more they try to “help” women, the more dependent the model (see #Julia); the more . . . well, you get the picture.

          Conversations, grown up or otherwise, are worthless. Plain and simple. The only way to roll this back is through long, hard work. The same sort of work they put into dividing us. We need to take back our American-ness, stop the socio-cultural norm of urging people to split their loyalties (African-American, etc. does just that; it’s not an accident that the most powerful woman in America is an “Iranian-American.” If you think of yourself as that, to which country or continent are you bound, are you loyal, are you ready to defend?), take back our schools (it’s not an accident that public schools teach socialism, communism, and fascism–calling it “X justice” and “progressivism” and “liberalism”; it’s not an accident that divisions are taught, reinforced, and hammered into our children’s brains), take it all back, including entertainment and news. That’s what Breitbart was talking about when he talked about a culture war. It’s big. They’ve won too many battles, but the war is ours.

      I agree Fuzi, there are blatant racial overtones in Biden’s remarks. I picked that up the first time I heard him say it. Plus, it was said in Danville which was the last capital city of the Confederacy. Putting anyone back in chains, given the place and his tone, is just low, nasty, racial gutter politics.

      If you look at the video of Biden saying this on youtube, you can see that it wasn’t an off the cuff remark. Dear ‘Ol Joe was using teleprompters.

      This was scripted.

    VP Biden Tells Us That Democrats Don’t Value Anything 

    Today, the brain trust that is Vice President Biden said that his father told him this:

    “Don’t tell me what you value, show me your budget, and I will tell you what you value”

    It has been something like 1195 days since they last passed a budget.  My math may be a little off, I found a number from last summer and added the days to today as best as I could.

    Obviously they don’t value anything.

    Apparently no one on the Obama campaign bothered to find out what he was going to say.

    What a twit.

      “What a twit” ! You are so kind and generous, jacg ! Sometimes I think he`d have to double his IQ to come up to “Moron”.

      Not passing a budget is actually quite a smart move by the libs in congress, especially the senate. If they DID pass a budget, spending measures would be enumerated, thus exposing their agenda. CAN`T HAVE THAT !! Plus, by having no budget, they get to spend like crazy, adding to the base-line each cycle, guaranteeing spending increases.

    Oh Yes He Did – VP Biden at NAACP 

    His speech was a disgrace.  He even went as far as to change up his speaking style and dialect.

    Here are just two of the lowlights:

    Huh?

    Then there is this little tidbit:

    What is that you learned Joe?  That Obama was clean and articulate?

    Sickening.

      Startling difference between Romney`s speech and Biden`s; Romney spoke to the gathering in terms befitting intelligent adults. Biden pandered to the lowest common denominator.

      I`ve come to understand that those who scream “Uncle Tom” at conservative blacks are in fact the REAL Uncle Toms. They are the ones, without realizing it, who want to stay on the plantation !

      • just a conservative girl 2:26 PM on 07/12/2012 Permalink | Reply

        Uncle Tom didn’t want to stay on the plantation. We need to rid ourselves of the pop culture version of who Uncle Tom was and how he was portrayed. I did post on it. Read it then pass the information on. http://912member.blogspot.com/2010/05/uncle-tom-profile-in-conviction.html

        • signpainterguy 5:39 PM on 07/12/2012 Permalink | Reply

          Is it not so that the Tom in question “chose” to stay with the plantation owner and help him in his time of need, shortage of helpers, when Tom could have chosen to go his own way ?

          • just a conservative girl 6:32 PM on 07/12/2012 Permalink | Reply

            No. Tom was told he would be freed by his second owner St. Clare. He gets killed and his wife reneges on that promise saying she just needs some help for a short time. Which he believed. Then she sells him to the man who eventually kills him. Sadly, that happens right at the time his original owner’s family raised enough to get him back and then free him with his wife and children. But to say that he voluntarily stayed a slave is not accurate. What he did voluntarily do was not runaway when he had the chance.

            • signpainterguy 9:59 AM on 07/13/2012 Permalink | Reply

              “…he did voluntarily …. not run away …. ” THAT is the point that stuck in my mind.

              “NOT running when he had the option” is what today is morphed into “won`t leave the plantation”, which is unconscionable. Today, the left, and blacks, portray / see republicans as the slave owners and the dem party as the emancipators; the opposite of reality.

              It sounds like there was trickery and betrayal “to burn”, but Tom`s actions were honorable.

                I over simplified it, but it comes down to this Uncle Tom was not a race traitor like he is referred to today. Read the book. I think all conservatives should read it so they can fight the stereotype of it.

                • signpainterguy 4:38 PM on 07/13/2012 Permalink | Reply

                  I have it on my e-Reader; I need to re-read it. It`s been a LOOOOONG time since I read a condensed version !

                  I really think we are making the same point; it is the liberal dems who are keeping blacks and minorities oppressed (enslaved and on the plantation); it is the liberal blacks and minorities who “choose” to remain enslaved and on the plantation while the republicans are falsely accused of being the oppressive slave owners and conservative blacks are falsely accused of being traitors !

    Quote of the Day – VP Biden Edition Part 2 

    “I don’t disrespect the Tea Party, I think the Tea Party and the Van Jones folks are different hats of the same concern. There’s an overwhelming frustration. There’s a great frustration here in America that the two parties haven’t been able to get very much moving. We have been in this period where there’s just nothing but fighting. So, you have, on the one hand, Van Jones’ guys — whoever he is — the point is, talking about the excesses of Wall Street and there’s some truth in what he says and there’s truth in what the Tea Party says.”

    Vice President Joe Biden on the Anti-Wall Street Protests.

    Why is Joe Biden acting like he and Van Jones don’t know each other?  They gave a speech together two years ago.  Interesting indeed.

     

     
    • fuzislippers 3:51 PM on 10/04/2011 Permalink | Reply

      True, he does know who Van Jones is. How can he not given the circumstances under which Van Jones left the admin.

      That said, don’t you find it . . . interesting that Biden is “reaching out” however clumsily to the TEA Party and earlier took responsibility for the economy (a thing BO refuses to do)? He’s also looking and sounding more “presidential” these days. What does he know that we don’t?

      • just a conservative girl 3:01 PM on 10/05/2011 Permalink | Reply

        I am not sure I like where you are headed with this Fuzzi. I don’t see Biden as much of an improvement over what we have know, with one exception……………….he would give bloggers hours and hours worth of comedy gold material.

        • fuzislippers 1:16 AM on 10/06/2011 Permalink | Reply

          Oh I hear you, but dems are desperate. BO is tanking in the polls, under so much stress that he sounds unhinged most of the times these days, and nothing he’s doing or saying is helping. They may be setting Biden up to be primaried, but dems want BO gone.

          Edit: I mean dems, not his progressive radicals who seem to have some kind of plan (that no doubt means more disaster for America).

    Quote of the Day – VP Biden Edition 

    “Even though 50-some percent of the American people think the economy tanked because of the last administration, that’s not relevant, what’s relevant is we’re in charge.”

    Vice President Biden in an interview with WLRN – Miami

    He went on to say:

    “…it’s totally legitimate for the 2012 presidential election to be a referendum on Obama and Biden and the nature and state of the economy.”

     
    • SignPainterGuy 5:48 PM on 09/29/2011 Permalink | Reply

      Does Mr Gaffetastic, Joe “Three Letter Word – J.O.B.S.” Biden realize that he just said that it is now OK to blame the Obama/Biden administration for the failing economy ? One has to wonder !

      Can you see the new campaign slogan, “We destroyed the economy – VOTE for us in 2012 so we can double-down and make it even worse !!” Dang, to think I only get one vote each in the primary and general elections ! Maybe I should move to Chicago so I can vote “Early and Often” !

    Hope & Change Joe Biden Style 

    “..exactly what the Recover act is all about.”

    So said Vice President Biden on Solyndra getting a half billion dollars in tax payer money for “clean energy” jobs.  The promise made by President Obama and friends was that this company would create 4,000 new jobs. 

    Fast forward 15 months and Solyndra has filed for bankruptcy.  Not only will no new jobs be created, the tax payers will not get the more than $500 million we put into the company. 

    A company that had a record of  “recurring loses from operations, negative cash flows since inception”  PricewaterhouseCoopers goes further after the audit and says “raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern”. 

    But, hey lets give them a half billion in tax payer money, they just might make a go of it, after all it is hope and change right?    The fact that the GAO has come to the conclusion that the Obama administration has put forward a proper review process is besides the point.  GAO analyst Frankin Rusco said:

    It makes the agency more susceptible to outside pressures, potentially. 

    I guess the $140K that Solyndra used for lobbyists paid off for them in the short term………the fact that the taxpayers are left on the hook is neither here nor there.
