Biden: ‘I Tend to Say What I Mean, and That Gets Me in Trouble--Except in Mississippi' February 27, 2013 By Melanie Hunter

(CNSNews.com) – Vice President Joe Biden, speaking at a meeting of the National Association of Attorneys General on gun violence Wednesday, said he says what he means and that gets him in trouble.

“No one’s ever doubted that I mean what I say. The problem is that I tend to say what I mean, and that gets me in trouble--except in Mississippi,” Biden said, after inviting the attorneys general to share any constructive criticism they may have about his proposals on gun control.

“I want to invite you, and I’m gonna have my staff afterwards available – any ideas you have about what I proposed to the president. Any constructive criticism you have, I am anxious to hear. I mean that sincerely, and ask any of your predecessors. They will tell you, I mean what I say,” Biden said.

Actually, Joe Biden’s biggest problem, going back several decades, is that he has a tendency either to step on his tongue or get his foot stuck in his extra-large sized mouth.

It’s not for nothing that the worst president in the entire history of the United States chose Joe for his running mate; “Idiots of a feather flock together.”

Is he trying to infer that people in Mississippi are as brain damaged as he is?

A condescending asshole is the proper term in this case.

It never ceases to piss me off when some politician or some comedian (black, Mexican, or white) denigrates the south.

They only perpetuate the distrust of the government and the North that many real Southerners have.

I think he sees all things through the prism of race. He picked the dumbest white man he could find. It was not a coincidence.

I don’t know why, but the quote made me imagine him saying the following:

“I tend to hit on young women, and that get me in trouble. Except at family reunions.”

Presidential candidates all tend to pick those they deem inferiors, just so the potential veeps don’t steal the limelight.

In Obama’s case, it was almost impossible to find an inferior, but he somehow managed it.

Biden, of course, missed his true calling; he should have donned the grease paint and driven one of those mini-cars around in a circle for Ringling Brothers.

He may say what he means, but what he says doesn’t mean anything.

It’s all about the accent, I think. Some people think that because I say y’all instead of youse I must be stupid. These are the same people who agree that education, socialism and “cultral awareness” are the same as intelligence. I was once called a hillbilly by a guy from Utica, NY, who had never been out of the state till he joined the service at age 22. $crew ‘em, I say.

"He picked the dumbest white man he could find."

I think you have hit the nail on the head...and Obama chose accurately, so far as I can tell.

“O” Had to have a white running mate. Also, this running mate had to be so venal, so lacking in character and had to possess ‘career prospects’ SOOOOO completely problematic and laughable that he could risk running on the same ticket with an unvetted, undocumented and seditious, Anti-American.

Joe was a natural and made to order!

Apparently “shot gun joe” doesn’t know any more about Mississippians or Mississippi than he knows about anything else. What an inappropiate moron, he can’t discuss anything without making an inappropiate comment, he’s crude, lewed and irrerevant.

No, he is implying that people in Mississippi don’t understand English.

Heck - even he doesn't know what he's talking about - his supporters will nod and act as if it makes perfect sense, but the credibility is about the same as those who tell us the deeper meaning behind movies and other "art" that just don't make sense.
