Posted on 09/18/2008 10:05:34 AM PDT by John Semmens
In remarks some consider potentially offensive, Democratic VP nominee, Senator Joe Biden (Del), posed a hypothetical question contrasting who cares more about the disabled.
You know, just giving birth to a retarded baby doesnt prove much, Biden said. Consider the case of a woman who already has four children. Pregnant with a fifth that she has been told has Downs Syndrome, she has two choices. She can go ahead and have the babyadding to the burden on society and condemning the child to a life that may not be worth living. Or she could terminate the pregnancy and donate the embryonic stem cells to research that could help save the lives of others.
I ask you, which choice does more for the disabled? Biden continued. Think about that before you get all weepy over Governor Palins special love for her special needs son.

Joe, how low can you go, you jerk?!
Potentially damaging remarks? Thats straight up offensive on every single level.
“Stand up, Chuck”
That mad is a first class Clymer and that is being nice.
Don’t think in my life I have ever seen a candidate come out and make such a statement. The Democrats and their agenda of killing innocent babies need to go down for this one!
I was mislead too.
Is this true or satire. If true it needs to be on Drudge and a Media ad made NOW. ASAP.
Everyone please remember this is FR’s Onion.
This is satire.
Should Biden be considered handicapped since he cannot grow hair on his own?
“Joe, how low can you go, you jerk?!”
My sentiments as well.
What a low down, scum bag.
But we've been through this. You're too good and way too many people believe these are real. Won't you consider putting "Satire" in the title where folks'll see it? Nobody notices the little tag.
There are people who are surrounded by bigots
and know it is wrong, but are afraid to be vocal against it.
These people are going to pull the lever for Obama
and they are not being polled.
Hey John, how about cluing us in that it’s not real on the FR post? People skimming your link will gloss over it.
SATIRE (but increasingly more difficult to recognize)
Biden is such a despicable man.
Of course I don’t care about the disabled...
Biden is mentally disabled and we laugh at him, so count me in as disensitized.
I know this is “satire”, but it is more offensive than if Biden had said it. Shame on you.
We do love the disabled, we love Slow Joe Biden.
Mad Magazine is satire, this is crap; it’s the kind of thing Democratic Underground would post about Bush. I’m not opening any more posts from AZCONSERVATIVE.ORG. You make freepers look shabby.
