So Ive been thinking about all the bad things that would happen to America if President Obama loses in November. And I could only come up with one. We would no longer have Joe Biden to kick around. Admit it: when Joe opens his mouth, you feel a lot smarter than you did right before he opened his mouth.
Take his latest gems.
Cranking it up at a roaring campaign rally, Biden says: With you we can win North Carolina.
He was in Virginia at the time.
Earlier, he told the crowd, Romney wants to, he said in the first 100 days, hes going to let the big banks once again write their own rules. Unchain Wall Street.
Then slipping into a southern accent, he finished with, Theyre going to put yall back in chains.
Nice move, Joe except the many black folks in the crowd werent laughing.
A day later on the campaign trail he tells supporters: Folks, wheres it written we cannot lead the world in the 20th century in making automobiles?
Okay, so the guy doesnt know what century were in? He cant know everything!
And bless his heart, remember when Joe, at a rally in Washington, had those nice things to say about the guys dead mother.
His mom lived in Long Island for ten years or so. God rest her soul. And- although, shes- wait- your moms still- your moms still alive. Your dad passed. God bless her soul.
Make fun of him if you will but Joe Biden is the kind of guy who acknowledges the little people in the crowd
Stand up, Chuck, let em see ya.
He was referring to Missouri State Senator Chuck Graham who is in a wheelchair.
Hey, anybody can make a mistake. At least Joe cares about the middle class. In Athens, Ohio, campaigning in 2008, he got the faithful going with a shot at John McCain
Look, Johns last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number-one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs.
Yes, Joe, and 2 plus 2 equal 6,000.
Speaking to the House Democratic Caucus, at a retreat in Williamsburg, Virginia, Biden channeled his inner Yogi Berra and said, If we do everything right, if we do it with absolute certainty, theres still a 30% chance were going to get it wrong.
Maybe, but what are the chances that hes going to get the name of the guy who put him on the ticket wrong.
A man Im proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next President of the United States Barack America!
Asked about Bidens flubs on a cable TV show, Rudy Giuliani, said I mean, this guy just isnt bright. Hes never been bright. He isnt bright. People think well, he just talks a little bit too much. Actually, hes just not very smart.
Really? Why? Just because he doesnt know what century were living in?
I dont know about you, but Im hoping we get the opportunity to miss Joe Biden.
Yogi Bear is smarter than Joe!
“Whos Smarter: Joe Biden or Yogi Berra?”: obvious trick question!
I think a more appropriate question would be: “Who’s smarter - Joe Biden or a rutebaga.
Yogi Berra could catch a fast ball thrown by a Major League pitcher 98.9% of the time and could hit a ball thrown by a major league pitcher 28.5% of the time. Joe Biden can’t even remember what state he’s in.
I would have gone with boo-boo, but Yogi hands down.
Yeah, and Yogi actually embedded pearls of wisdom in many of his sayings. Biden is merely a dumb a$$.
My first thought as well.
“Smarter than the average bear!”
Yogi Berra said all that stuff intentionally. Its his schtick. He’s clever, and has a unique way of rephrasing the ordinary, redundant, etc. to make it sound profound. Berra is very bright ... catcher is the most complicated position on the field.
Joe Biden is just an idiot.
Yogi is certainly a lot funnier.
You’re right about Yogi. His quips were well thought out.
Where are the Yogi Berra quotes?
The nickel ain’t worth a dime anymore.
Always go to other people’s funerals otherwise they won’t come to yours.
Baseball is 90% mental and the other half is physical.
Congratulations. I knew the record would stand until it was broken.
Half the lies they tell about me aren’t true.
He hits from both sides of the plate; he’s amphibious.
That bar is so crowded that nobody goes there anymore.
My personal fave is: “If you come to a fork in the road, take it.”
Joe Gaffer Biden is an embarrassment.
It’s deja vu, all over again.
When Biden plays in half as many World Series games as Yogi, we’ll talk.
I RESENT THAT!
You ever sit back, read an article like this and just know that anything you write is going to be kicked back by the admin for some hysterical, yet uncalled for remark?
There are so many Yogi Berra jokes out there that this thread can go on for days.
we’re handling this badly... when given a soft pitch, you knock it otu of the park...
the response should be” This is a hoot! the party of Jim Crow, Bull Connor, segregation and the KKK (remember jesse helms), not to mention all the damage welfare has done to blacks, has some nerve accusing the party of Lincoln of wanting to enchain blacks.”
I thought he said 90% of the game is half mental.
My favorite. When asked by a teammate what time it was, Yogi’s answer was —— do you mean now?
Hey Joey Plugs, it gets late real early in DC.
Yogi, and I don’t say that as a partisan. Berra was very, very successful at what he did. His verbal “gaffes” were just malapropisms. In Biden’s case, the gaffes reveal a feeble mind. Big difference.
True, very true. Most people don't realize it's the catcher who usually calls the pitches.
In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.
Tell it, Yogi!
