I wonder if the GOP sends him checks.

If they don’t, they should.

It is truly scary that this guy is a heart beat away from the presidency.

Stephanie Cutter of the Obama campaign issued this immediate response:

“Vice President Biden was obviously speaking in a metaphor to reflect the fact that Mitt Romney is a throwback to the 1950s. The President is entirely comfortable with Vice President Biden’s comments and has complete confidence in him.”

Seriously, is there a worse job in politics than Cutter’s? Cleaning up after Obama and Biden’s mistakes on the campaign trail is a really crappy job. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving hack than Cutter.

Reminds me of when McCain was running his campaign so poorly that many R’s were suggesting he WANTED to lose.

And if he is going to be doing this every day or two, this will be a fun two months. :-)

I think the dems, especially nobama and brokenaxlerod, really like protraying Ol Joe as a lame-brain. This give them a bit of cover when he comes out with crap like “chains”, but its still out there and understood by the focused audience (in chains case, holder’s people).

Well correct me if I'm wrong, but the 1950's produced some great cars.

I’ll bet he doesn’t even feel stupid. Probably thinks he’s some kind of intellectual giant just because he’s the VP and all.

LOL. The Obama campaign slogan is “Forward.” I guess that means backward in Obamaspeak.

At some point America has to realize that these are not adults. An adult would simply say "sorry, I misspoke."

I’m beginning to feel sorry for him while still laughing. He is obviously having mental issues.

No way, this is pure, unadulterated “stand up for Chuck” Biden!

Concur. Methinks that Hillary is already in the on-deck circle , the organ player is sounding “Hey Joe, where you going with that....”, the PA guy is stepping up to the mic, “Now batting for Joe Biden...”

They make a mistake or lie and the explain it with yet another lie. Blatant commie tactics. Our side won’t even point out the root of these tactics.

A box of rocks has just filed a defamation lawsuit for being compared to Biden in a sentence that included the words “dumber than.”

I was walking on the sidewalk on the west side of the White House in April when security shut down all traffic, both vehicle and pedestrian.

After a ten minute wait, a six car convoy with Joe Biden in an armored Suburban eased out of the driveway. A guy in a thousand dollar suit pointed and said to me: “if Joe didn’t have a chauffeur he couldn’t find his way back home”
