Biden to 'dull as hell' fundraiser crowd: 'Pretend you like me' By Justin Sink - 04/27/12 12:38 PM ET
Vice President Biden ordered supporters to "pretend you like me" after mocking them as "dull as hell" at a campaign fundraiser in Washington on Friday.
The vice president was speaking to Turkish and Azerbaijani donors about the potential of the region as a democratic and economic force when he noticed he wasn't getting much of a reception.
I guess what Im trying to say without boring you too long at breakfast and you all look dull as hell, I might add. The dullest audience I have ever spoken to. Just sitting there, staring at me. Pretend you like me!" Biden said.
The joke "drew big laughs from the crowd," according to the press pool report.
Biden went on to extoll "Azerbaijan as country with tremendous potential. We want Azerbaijan to succeed in its goal of developing a modern democracy and becoming a regional leader, he said before wrapping up his comments.
"Im boring you as much as Im boring myself," Biden joked while exiting the stage.
Tickets for the event cost $2,500 a piece and went to the Democratic National Committee and President Obama's reelection campaign. More than 200 members of the Turkish and Azerbaijani communities were in attendance.
“Dull” is Biden’s middle name.
Biden is a used car salesman who has over achieved.
That’s the way to get them to open their wallets Joe, call the audience dull. Joe Biden—the gaffe that just keeps on giving.
Oh... No... He is wrong! again!
He has never spoken to an audience that included ME!
I will give him a rousing round of SILENCE!
Ssshhhhh ... don't clue in the clueless! :-)
Well if Obama has the “Big Stick”, Biden must, therefore, have the “Little Stick”? Neither go through TSA body scanners at this point, so we don’t know for sure
quotin a Vice President with the candle power of 1 watt is a hoot
I would say that there is a lot more wisdom in the minds of the average resident in an old folks' home.
Biden's sole purpose as VP is to make Obama look smart. Does he actually DO anything?
Best VP ever.
Years ago, I once attended an industry “Q&A” breakfast meeting where Biden headed a delegation of Senators and Congressmen
Being the “Senior Senator” - the idiot gave “opening remarks” that stretched 1+ hour, his main purpose was to really just hear himself talk. He literally talked (about nothing) through the entire time allotted to the group for questions and discussion on the issue at hand.
He was an @ss then, and is an @ss now.
I don't think anyone is that good an actor.
UGH! This whole administration is disgusting.
I can’t wait to see what he says when he’s actually senile.
I still say the only reason they picked this absolute moron as VP was because “Obama-Biden” looks remarkably similar to “Obama Bin-Laden”. Like my brother says; “When it comes to terrorists, Republicans want to fight them. Democrats want to make them President.”
>> Pretend you like me!” Biden said.
Laurence Olivier himself didn’t have THAT kind of acting skill.
Did they all shout “Stand up Chuck!” When he told them to be more like him?
obama’s life insurance policy continues his campaign stump...
We’ll pretend we like you if you pretend we gave you $2,500.
A shtick (Yiddish: שטיק) (or schtick) is a comic theme or gimmick. "Shtick" is derived from the Yiddish word shtik (שטיק), meaning "piece"; the closely related ..
What? Senile? You actually want to watch someone yell about cold oatmeal.... When he has a bowl of corn flakes in front of him.....?
