Biden: Were counting on legitimate media for successful gun control effort February 11, 2013 | 1:46 pm
During a press conference on gun safety in Philadelphia, Vice President Joe Biden said that any reports that suggest that he was trying to take weapons away from gun owners was a bunch of malarkey.
"I know that's a word that you've never heard before, although it's now in the dictionary," Biden boasted.
Biden said that it was important for the media to dissuade the American public from the idea that the Obama administration was prepared to do something unconstitutional on guns.
To be very blunt with you, were counting on all of you, the legitimate news media to cover these discussions because the truth is that times have changed, Biden added, warning that people would continue to misrepresent the White House's plans for gun control.
"The social media that exists out there, the tragedies that have occurred, the Supreme Court decision affirming that its an individual right to bear arms - all give a lie to the argument that what we're trying to do is somehow unconstitutional.........

So he comes right out and tells the MSM that it is their job (as if they needed to be told) to carry the water for the Hussein administration.
Joe is word challenged. It’s not “legitimate”, it’s complicit.
Given the fact the last time the 2nd was in front of the Supremes, it was only one vote from being overruled, what Obie wants to do could reasonably be considered potentially ‘constitutional’. At least that’s what they’re thinking.
Nazis love their propaganda machines. What can we say?
“It’s the economy, stupid!” —JAMES CARVILLE, 1992
He means the guys who will be doing Obama’s Nikolai Yezhov photos?
Translation from Biden’s horse shh*t double talk: “We’re counting on you Useful Idiots in the compliant media who consitute our Marxist Ministry of Propaganda to help us nullify the Second Amendment and bring down the American constitutional form of government.
Joey Biden is probably one of the dumbest clowns around.
Me and Joe shared Amtrak cars on a few occasions from DC to, first Delaware, (his stop) and then me onto Philly.
Joe is a “nice guy.” He really is, I don’t think he has a mean bone in his body.
But sit and talk to him at length, and you will know why the DuPont family chose him to be Senator from Delaware.
Joe never could have amounted to much, had the DuPonts not seen the usefulness of the idiot.
all media minus one or two start now with your lies and make gun owners look stupid and rednecks and make it cool to not have a gun like Holder once said.
legitimate media nuff sed. This is about as funny as he is
yea more liek welfare stupid, we have a bad economy and did at the election but they voted for this clown though it was fraud which got him back into the peoples house
Wow....Right to their face....I might get "ZAPED" for this, or at lest admonished...But it begs the question....Did you ever wonder what a c**k sucker felt when you call him a c**k sucker.?? I would think the media would have a few moments of reflection...But probably not...I.m sure they have lost all semblance of respect for themselves long ago...I know I don't have any respect what so ever for the supposibly "fifth column"....
Once upon a time in America, leaders understood their role, and the wise ones understood the role of the press in a free society.
"It behooves every man who values liberty of conscience for himself, to resist invasions of it in the case of others; or their case may, by change of circumstances, become his own. It behooves him, too, in his own case, to give no example of concession, betraying the common right of independent opinion . . . ." --Thomas Jefferson to Benjamin Rush, 1803.
"The basis of our governments being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter." --Thomas Jefferson to Edward Carrington, 1787.
Have a peaceful sleep tonite.
