An Insignificant Hour and a Half of Joe Biden Braying Like a Biblical Donkey
I really do personally like Joe Biden, but he came across as a braying Biblical donkey tonight on stage in Kentucky. It was made worse by a moderator who lost repeated control of the debate. Up front, I have to say I’m hung up on one big thing. Joe Biden said the intelligence community got it wrong in Libya, but he says we can trust | Read More »
This evening, the debate we’ve all been waiting for will finally begin. Not traditionally a debate most Americans focus on, the lone Vice Presidential debate has become more of a focus this year due to the President’s poor performance in the only debate thus far. The Vice Presidential candidates have been relatively secluded the last week, both working overtime to study for tonight’s debate. Vice | Read More »
The Real Joe Biden: The Wrongest Man To Ever Utter Wrong Things
The Obama campaign keeps claiming that Mitt Romney did not really show up last Wednesday. Apparently it was ManBearPig, which is why Al Gore decided to raise his voice with the altitude conspiracy. I wonder if the real Joe Biden will show up tonight. Biden, who considers himself an expert on all things foreign policy, famously admitted to opposing Obama going after Osama. He’s like | Read More »
Welcome to the new Media paradigm, Mister Gibbs.
It’s one where you get interrupted when you try to spin the stupid things that your candidates say. For those without video, it shows: George Stephanopoulos (!) playing a clip of Joe Biden’s infamous ‘buried’ gaffe*; asking Robert Gibbs whether gaffes like this will hurt the Vice President in his upcoming debate with Paul Ryan**; and stopping Gibbs cold when Gibbs tried to claim that | Read More »
Joe Biden touts the fiscally progressive ideals of his Delaware homeland.
While I understand that it’s absolutely fascinating to watch Joe Biden campaign on the unique message Let’s have a trillion dollar tax hike! BIDEN: “On top of the trillions of dollars of spending that we have already cut, we’re gonna ask – yes – we’re gonna ask the wealthy to pay more. My heart breaks, come on man. You know the phrase they always use? | Read More »
Book: Mafia Hit-Man & Teamster Boss Helped Joe Biden Become U.S. Senator
The book I Heard You Paint Houses came out in 2003, so it’s been gathering some dust on a number of bookshelves around the country for quite some time. The book’s title, according to Amazon, comes from the first words infamous Teamster boss Jimmy Hoffa ever spoke to Frank “the Irishman” Sheeran. To paint a house is to kill a man. The paint is the | Read More »
The Beginning of the End
Today marks the beginning of the end of Campaign 2012. This week, here in Tampa, Republicans will go through a well scripted event designed to make Mitt Romney their nominee. Democrats will reciprocate next week in Charlotte, NC. The GOP’s convention almost became unscripted with a heavy handed move designed to ensure a coronation and shut out the grassroots from nomination fights. According to press | Read More »
Not the Behavior of a Winning Campaign
The media keeps showing its rear end. Let me just make that clear. If you are a competent reporter, I’m not sure how you cannot be embarrassed by the majority of those in your profession right now covering politics. From Mark Halperin, to Jake Tapper, to Chuck Todd, more journalists are actually now admitting just how pliable the media is when it comes to Barack | Read More »
Boston Globe slams Joe Biden for gaffes, and liberals for hypocrisy. (That was not a typo.)
Because I never thought that I would see a major Democratic newspaper lecture a Democratic Vice President like this – and lecture liberals for letting said Vice President get away with murdering his own rhetoric for so long: Liberals routinely dismiss Biden’s gaffes as the rhetorical excesses of an overly exuberant speaker — it’s “Joe being Joe.” And there can be something appealing about a | Read More »
Keep Running Joe: American Crossroads Hits It Out of the Park
I’ve been critical of a lot of the Super PAC ads, but I have to say that American Crossroads has hit it out of the park today: That is staggeringly awesome. Go give them some cash so they can get that ad up everywhere.
Former VA Governor Doug Wilder (D) smacks around Joe Biden over ‘Chains’ comment.
I assume that everyone is checked out on the basic story? Vice President Joe Biden Opened His Mouth at a majority-African American audience in Virginia and told that audience that if Romney got elected they were all going to end up in chains (he also told them that they were in North Carolina, but that kind of reality-based ambiguity is more or less baked into | Read More »
The Crazy Fool From the Attic Turned Vice President Race Baits
In fairness to Vice President Biden, I supposed I should have a full post for our collective crazy uncle in the attic turned Vice President. The man from Delaware claimed that Republicans want to put people back in chains. Considering there is only one group of people ever put in chains in this country, it is clear he was race baiting. I have no doubt | Read More »
Just under a month ago, I wrote Of all the people to not be beating up Mitt Romney for his present not quite stellar campaign, I find myself in that position. I’m genuinely not that worried. I am still not worried, but I am getting concerned. This election is trending away from Romney as the economy deteriorates and more Americans believe the economy is getting | Read More »
Tech at Night: Obama FCC still doesn’t get it on spectrum, Don Young admits USF is corrupt [Fixed]
With the Cybersecurity Act on hold for now, it seems like a slow news week, so a quick one tonight. We’re in a spectrum crunch, and as long as the Obama administration is restricting spectrum allocation, including the critical secondary spectrum market that firms like Verizon and AT&T are trying to operate in, it’s not going to get better. The Obama FCC claims to get | Read More »

Who is the more believable articulator of Obama/Biden’s coal policy?
Leo Gerard, the (Canadian) president of the United Steelworkers union? (Via Obama spokesflack @BenLaBolt) Mr. Obama is committed to protecting clean air and clean water for our families while also helping the coal industry. Or would it be… actually, hold on a second. WHO ASKED foreign-born and foreign-national union leader Gerard his opinion on the 2012 American Presidential election? WHY did the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette avoid | Read More »
