Breitbart ^

Posted on 08/15/2012 6:47:04 PM PDT by chessplayer

Vice President Biden in Danville, VA on 8/14: "I have more to say, but I am saying too much already because these guys get me going... and you're gonna have trouble translating all this! The poor lady, she's gonna have tendonitis by the time she finishes this."

1) Doesn't know what state he's in.

2) Plays the skin color card.

3) Mocks the sign language lady.

All in the same speech.

What he doesn’t know is that all she was signing was, “Hope, blah, blah, blah. Change, blah, blah, blah. Boy, can this guy run on at the mouth or what”

Well, I never thought I’d say it, but I’ll cut Biden a break here-that sounds like something I might say!

Biden is only kept around so that Obama is not the dumbest creature in Washington.

Yeah, I don’t think he was mocking the sign language interpreter, as much as he was mocking himself for talking so much.

I’ve heard of people being “a lawyer’s lawyer” and “a comedian’s comedian”, etc. But Slow Joe is an idiot’s idiot.

Sign Language Rocks!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZzlavFuUqCI

When you see my face
Hope it gives you hell, hope it gives you hell
When you walk my way
Hope it gives you hell, hope it gives you hell

Now where's your picket fence, love?
And where's that shiny car?
And did it ever get you far?
You never seemed so tense, love
I've never seen you fall so hard
Do you know where you are?

And truth be told I miss you
And truth be told I'm lying
When you see my face
Hope it gives you hell, hope it gives you hell
When you walk my way
Hope it gives you hell, hope it gives you hell

I saw Red Skelton on stage. He pulled a couple of pranks on the signer and the deaf people she was with loved it. I don’t think he did a mean thing in his life.

March, 2009 Obama Apologizes for Calling His Bad Bowling ‘Like the Special Olympics’

That’w what makes the Democrats so special: their empathy for people with disabilities.

Slow Joe ... a one man comedy show...unfortunately and embarrassingly, he occupies the VP of the USA office. Just think, in another time, he would have been the guy pushing the dust mop down the hallways of the White House.

Biden Mocks Sign Language Interpreter

Come on Breitbart folks, you are smarter than this. Mocks the interpeter? PLEASE! Biden was making a pretty pathetic attempt at self-deprication, but this could hardly be called "mocking" the sign language interpreter.

The interpreter should gesture the release of flatulent.

#1 is stupid, #2 is below reprehensible, but #3 was harmless and even mildly amusing.

Obama revealed an ugly mean streak with his bowling remark but Biden was just trying to be funny at his own expense. Even the interpreter was laughing at Biden’s remarks. Breitbart doesn’t help their reputation by putting out such a misleading headline.

I’m a sign language interpreter, and I’ve had people make the same kind of comment, especially when they talk long or fast.

One time a priest was giving a homily and began speaking a lot of Latin phrases. I had no idea how to sign them, and in truth the phrases added very little to the context, so I signed “bunch of Latin words” to the deaf audience and they understood and accepted my effort (the Latin probably meant about the same thing to the hearing audience anyway).
