Skip to comments.Biden fired up at Ohio rally (Calls opponents 'BARBARIANS')

Vice President Joe Biden is known for his colorful rhetoric, and he didnt disappoint a Labor Day crowd in Cincinnati. Noting Ohio labor members fight to overturn a new state law that clamps down on the organizing rights of public employees, Biden said of the stakes:
This is a different kind of fight. This is a fight for the heart and soul of the labor movement. This is a fight for the existence of organized labor. You are the only ones who can stop the barbarians at the gate! Thats why they want you so bad.
Glad that Barry has brought the country together and reined in the likes of Biden, Maxine Water, the CongressClown who equated Tea Partiers to a lynch mob, and today Jimmy 'the' Hoffa calling for Obama to take 'these sons of bitches out'. Nothing like civility in politics and as Barry says 'being able to disagree without being disagreeable'.
Yeah, he’s probably been taking lessons fr9om his boss.
Fire up. Divide. incite. Mob technology!
The left always tells us whom they fear the most........
What Obama and his henchman are really saying: “Ignore our record. Ignore unemployment. Ignore the record low workforce. Ignore the length of time people are on unemployment. Ignore the number on foodstamps. Ignore the number of houses underwater. Ignore everything we did. Those nasty Tea Party people are evil. Vote for us.”
Rimshot Joe. Just trying to get into the union’s Hate America spirit that is going around ‘RATville today.
I think balloons are going up. I think it starts soon.
I preferred Hobbits.
Unions in private sector are one thing.
Government worker unions are another. It pits citizen against citizen, one demanding the other pay them more and more and more, regardless of whether they are working or making as much. And then whining about how hard they have it in their govt work.
There is absolutely NOTHING good that comes from government unions. Nothing. They make everything costlier to the taxpayer. Hamstring govt officials’ ability to keep costs down for everyone.
They all need to go. If you want to be in a union, work in the private sector. Just don’t be surprised when you find yourself out of a job.
The last employed person, shut off the lights.
Better a Barbarian than an obamanation!
Those nasty Tea Party people are evil. Vote for us.
Yep Does that sound like a winning strategy to you? There will have to be armed guards at the polls to keep me away and that will not work either. They are so “history” and are starting to realizes it.
When we get the Senate and a conservative President, all Federal Government Unions should be abolished. If it shuts the government down, then so be it and start a hiring program. I will guarantee that at least 2/3 of those Government employees will dump the Union and stay on the job.
So one minute we are short little hobbits with big feet, then the next minute we are barbarians trying to rip everything apart. Will these morons make up their minds and put together a coherent thought ? There is a big difference between a barbarian and a hobbit. In fact they are not even closely related.
I’ve got news for you Joe. We are inside the gates and your party is over.
It’s TEA PARTY time!
Imagine, if Palin had used same language, in place of fired up they would of called her inciting violence etc....
I’m actually quite flattered by “barbarian”.
A distinction without a difference. Unions are the enemy of any decent, hard-working fellow.
First, the fact that Obama and Biden use a national holiday to attack political opponents shows these people are classless, clueless and clownlike.
Second, if they want to throw down the gauntlet, fine -— BRING IT ON!
I’m sure that Biden, steeped in Marxist thought, recalls Morgan’s pre-Marxist classifaction of the growth of human kind: From Savagry to Barbarity to Civilization. Barbarians were basically illiterate savages who had joined in groups for protection — the perfect definition of Democrats. Civilization, on the other hand, provided a home to literate leaders able to think beyond the narrow clan to the greater good. Sorry Biden (and Hoffa), that perfectly defines the Tea Party.
When it comes time for the administration to negotiate on our behalf with the public employees’ unions, its always nice to know we’ve got someone like Biden or Obama representing our interests. (sarc)
Yeah, me too, and I think that it’s rather interesting that Biteme is warning a bunch of thugs to beware of barbarians.
In terms of their goals yes. In terms of their impacts, it is an enormous difference.
However if one wants to be stupid in this country and form a union under a private employer there’s no reason they should not be able to.
They only hurt themselves and one company in the private sector. All the rest of their fellow citizens are not on the hook paying for them. They only have themselves to blame when the company lays them off or goes bankrupt and the union contract dissolves.
Public unions screw all of us. Job security of public employees is far stronger than private.
There are huge, real differences.
Here’s a compromise:
Barbarian Hobbits !
(I’ll need help with the online artwork....)
Think about it, All this war talk against people who only want the nations bills to be paid, Pitting Americans against Americans, For their power
They have to do it, they have not one success in 30 months in charge of the White House, 4 years of running Congress.
It’s the last gasp of air they will breath
A government union is a double whammy, that's true. But that doesn't make private unions any better. They are vehicles for graft and politics, at the expense of the legimiately motivated and talented.
I hate ALL unions. Always have, always will.
I've said it before and it's worth repeating,,,,If this guy had a brain, he would be arrested for smuggling $hit.
“I preferred Hobbits.”
Time for the scouring of the Shire?
The threat to "take out" political opposition by Union Thugs and the endorsement of this call by both the President and the Vice President, more than anything that has happened in the last few years, has angered me to a degree that I cannot fully express. This is a direct assault on the Constitution, a document I have sworn to defend against all enemies foreign and domestic. This is a death threat made against Americans pursuing their natural rights.
I was not involved in Tea Party politics before, but I will be now. If that means union thugs will come after me, well, I am military trained to stand my ground and return heat.
Mr. Hoffa, Mr. Biden, Mr. President, you had best think twice about this. --- September 5, 2011 5:53 PM
My dad was fond of saying, “If he had a brain he’d eat it.”
It's not the union thugs that 'unknown' has to worry about.
It's the agents provocateur that have infiltrated the tea party that one has to understand are there.
He may be one himself...
Excellent point. Being an open, citizen's grassroots movement, we will be infiltrated. I thought about this at the last Tea Party Express event... when stopped by a Romneybot asking for a signature on my way to the truck afterwards... (hell, they let anybody in here - why not provocateurs).
Heh. Bring it on.
Frankly, I'd be surprised if Joe can spell "barbarian".
I don’t think Biden is steeped in any kind of thought, although he might be steeped in gin. He is an old-school politician and has no philosophy other than what makes Joe Biden richer. He is first and foremost a con artist.
“Crazy Joe Biden is f@cking nuts, Babe, that’s why they call him Crazy Joe.”
Good pic! I remember that movie from when it first came out. Who knew the Reds in that movie would be homegrown.
They should do combined remake titled “Red Dawnya”.
I’ll play the lead.
Barbarian, please take my hand!
I think “barbarians at the gate” is an expression.
