Biden Didn’t Say Tea Party ‘Acted Like Terrorists’? Some Other Stupid Things Biden Must Not Have Said

Allow me to begin by pointing out that Vice President Joe Biden is a blithering idiot.  When Steve Martin played the role of “Ruprecht the Monkey Boy,” he nailed Joe Biden.

We’ve got this recent report of Joe Biden saying that the tea party members “acted like terrorists”:

Vice President Joe Biden joined House Democrats in lashing tea party Republicans Monday, accusing them of having “acted like terrorists” in the fight over raising the nation’s debt limit.

Biden was agreeing with a line of argument made by Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.) at a two-hour, closed-door Democratic Caucus meeting.

“We have negotiated with terrorists,” an angry Doyle said, according to sources in the room. “This small group of terrorists have made it impossible to spend any money.”

Biden, driven by his Democratic allies’ misgivings about the debt-limit deal, responded: “They have acted like terrorists,” according to several sources in the room.

Several sources in the room confirmed that Biden said that.  The news story that Biden made the remark has circulated widely.

The remark that tea party Republicans “acted like terrorists” is an ultra common leftwing talking point.  Nevertheless, Biden now denies having said it.

A leftwing site frames that denial rather well for my purposes:

Later, Biden denied his use of the word to CBS News, but he did go on record saying the GOP had “guns to their heads.” Regardless, Biden will certainly come under more fire thanks to the right wing’s disdain for anyone using the term “terrorist” unless they are referring to Muslims, Middle Easterners and/or those who are otherwise brown, but as Americans, maybe we can agree that “emotional terrorism” sounds about right when describing the debt impasse.

That made me laugh because the writer is clearly trying to vilify Republicans for insisting on calling terrorists “terrorists” – and Islamic extremists are responsible for 99.999999999% of all terrorist acts whether you are a clueless idiot or not – while claiming that Republicans who in Democrat Mike Doyle’s words “have made it impossible to spend any money” ARE terrorists.

I’ve talked about this beforeAs have others.  Only conservatives who stop Democrats from spending money are “terrorists.”  The actual terrorists who have murdered so many thousands of people are facilitators of “man-caused disasters.”

It is of course rather ironic to say the least that the Democrats who repeatedly labeled the tea party Republicans as “terrorists” who were “holding America hostage” by holding out on the debt ceiling negotiation actually were more “terrorist” than the tea party Republicans they demonized.

Democrats are hard-core spending junkies who are addicted to massive debt spending the way crack cocaine addicts are addicted to their next fix:

You can see them getting increasingly enraged and paranoid as they are denied that next fix for even a few days.  Cut them off from scratching their itch and the fangs come out.

But I digress.

Since Joe Biden didn’t say the line about tea party Republicans – namely that “They have acted like terrorists” – I thought it would be interesting to consider some other things the moron surely must not have said:

  • “This is a big fucking deal!” –Joe Biden, caught on an open mic congratulating President Barack Obama during the health care signing ceremony, Washington, D.C., March 23, 2010

God bless her soul.” –Joe Biden, on the mother of Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen, who is very much alive, Washington, D.C., March 17, 2010
  • “I wouldn’t go anywhere in confined places now. … When one person sneezes it goes all the way through the aircraft. That’s me.

  • “If we do everything right, if we do it with absolute certainty, there’s still a 30% chance we’re going to get it wrong.” –Joe Biden, speaking to members of the House Democratic caucus who were gathered in Williamsburg, Va., for their annual retreat, Feb. 6, 2009
  • “Am I doing this again? For the senior staff? My memory is not as good as Chief Justice Roberts’.” –Joe Biden, mocking Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts’ botched effort to swear in Barack Obama as Biden was set to swear in White House senior staff one day after the Inauguration snafu, Washington, D.C., Jan. 21, 2009
  • “Jill and I had the great honor of standing on that stage, looking across at one of the great justices, Justice Stewart.” –Joe Biden, mistakenly referring to Justice John Paul Stevens, who swore him in as vice president, Washington, D.C., Jan. 20, 2009 (Watch video clip)
  • “Look, John’s 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.” –Joe Biden, Athens, Ohio, Oct. 15, 2008 (Source)
  • “When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened.” –Joe Biden, apparently unaware that FDR wasn’t president when the stock market crashed in 1929 and that only experimental TV sets were in use at that time, interview with Katie Couric, Sept. 22, 2008 (Watch video clip)
  • “Stand up, Chuck, let ’em see ya.” –-Joe Biden, to Missouri state Sen. Chuck Graham, who is in a wheelchair, Columbia, Missouri, Sept. 12, 2008 (Watch video clip)
  • “Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president of the United States of America. Quite frankly, it might have been a better pick than me.” –Joe Biden, speaking at a town hall meeting in Nashua, New Hampshire, Sept. 10, 2008 (Source)
  • “A man I’m proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next President of the United States — Barack America!” –Joe Biden, at his first campaign rally with Barack Obama after being announced as his running mate, Springfield, Ill., Aug. 23, 2008 (Watch video clip)
  • “A successful dump!” –Joe Biden, explaining his whereabouts (dropping deadwood at the dump) to the reporters outside his home, Wilmington, Del., Aug. 20, 2008
  • “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.” –Joe Biden, referring to Barack Obama at the beginning of the 2008 Democratic primary campaign, Jan. 31, 2007 (Source)
  • “You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent…. I’m not joking.” –Joe Biden, in a private remark to an Indian-American man caught on C-SPAN, June, 2006 (Watch video clip)

The best – in terms of the stupidest and most vile – Joe Biden quote of all was the one Biden said AFTER “not saying” the thing about tea party Republicans:

Count Vice President Biden among those excited to see Rep. Gabrielle Giffords at the U.S. Capitol yesterday.

Biden, who got advance notice from Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi that Giffords would show up, said the Arizona Democrat called him “Joe” when she saw him.

“I said, ‘Now we’re both members of the Cracked Head Club,'” Biden is quoted as saying in The Boston Globe.

Giffords was shot in the head Jan. 8 in a rampage during one of her constituent events in Tucson. Six people died.

Obama’s idiot vice president pretty much had to deny calling tea party Republicans “terrorists,” given Obama’s arrogant and hypocritical lecturing on “civility” in the aftermath of the shooting of aforementioned Gabrielle Giffords.  Especially when she provided the extremely un-hateful (and un-Bidenlike) statement:

“I have closely followed the debate over our debt ceiling and have been deeply disappointed at what’s going on in Washington,” Giffords said, in a statement from her office. “After weeks of failed debate in Washington, I was pleased to see a solution to this crisis emerge. I strongly believe that crossing the aisle for the good of the American people is more important than party politics. I had to be here for this vote. I could not take the chance that my absence could crash our economy.”

And of course the Republicans were actually THE reason we ever actually HAD a “solution to this crisis emerge.”  Republicans passed not one, not two, but actually THREE bills to solve the debt ceiling crisis.  Versus Democrats, who passed ZERO.  And versus Obama, who never even came up with a single plan when he is allegedly the leader of the damn country.

But hey, if you want to believe that surely Joe Biden is not so stupid to have called tea party Republicans terrorists, I’m not going to bother to argue with you.

You’re really just not worth dialoguing with.
