The Obama Campaign Circus: Biden Day of Gaffe
admin | On 01, Nov 2012
Katie Pavlich of TownHall.com has done a heck of a job of tracking Joe Biden’s campaign movements this October; though, today, it hasn’t been all that difficult. Coincidentally, today is Halloween, but the VP needs no costume to make a statement. He only needs to go as himself to turn heads.
Most of us have probably already heard about Biden’s statement on C-SPAN, saying something about a ‘load’.
The circus called and said they’re missing their clown. We found him!
Vice President Joe Biden had quite a day today out on the campaign trail stumping for his boss President Obama. First in Sarasota, Florida Biden said, “I’m going to give you the whole load.” I’m not going to explain what that means here, but lets just say it’s a pretty disgusting thing to say in public, especially in front of a crowd and at an event being broadcast on C-SPAN.
Like Pavlich, I’m also not going to explain why that was an inappropriate thing for the VP to say before thinly veiled giggling stemming from the realization of what exactly came out of his mouth, just know that it wasn’t very ‘vice-presidential’. But, this wasn’t the only news on Biden’s recent campaign antics. Never underestimate Joe Biden’s ability to completely insult Americans of diverse ethnicities…
Biden turned to the group of guys, then, according to the pool report, Biden asked one of them, “Are you Indian?”
“American!” the man responded.
“No, I mean first generation,” Biden replied, “with the further explanation of what he was saying being inaudible to the pool.”
Pavlich slapped that transcript in her article, to which she wrote, “This isn’t the first time Biden has brought up the topic of Indians in inappropriate ways,” as the VP has imitated an Indian accent and also stated to a man of Indian descent that you couldn’t go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts in Delaware “unless you have a slight Indian accent.”
But don’t think he stopped there; Biden also thought he was in Ohio while he was actually in Florida, citing the Cleveland Plain Dealer, one of the major newspapers “in this state.”
And yet, that wasn’t even enough for the vice president, the man second in command of our country. Biden was not only out campaigning for his running mate, Barack Obama, but he was campaigning for his own 2016 presidential bid.
And, Biden wasn’t just campaigning for Obama — he joked with a Republican at a Florida restaurant that “after it’s all over when your insurance rates go down, then you’ll vote for me in 2016.”
As Bert Atkinson wrote yesterday, “Just to remind you, if you vote for Barack Obama in 2012, you are also voting for Joe Biden to be the president if something happens to Obama.” But interestingly enough, Biden is drawing attention away from Benghazi-gate, so this could actually be good news for the Obama campaign.
