Stark Raving Joe

Written By: William F. B. O'Reilly - Oct• 19•11

Persistent rumors have abounded — and have been shot down with equal persistence — that Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton might swap positions for the 2012 elections. The argument is that Biden adds nothing to the 2012 ticket — and that he yearns to be Secretary of State — while Mrs. Clinton singularly could save President Obama from electoral defeat. 

Reading interviews like this one shows why such a move is an utter impossibility. What President in his right mind would unleash bizarre Bidenisms across the globe?  They are bad enough here in the U.S. 

In his latest tirade, Biden suggests that sexual assaults will occur across the country en masse if President Obama’s latest “stimulus” package isn’t adopted.  And then, in speaking about opponents of that borrowing binge of a plan, Biden crosses further into the surreal-speak for which he has become infamous: “I wish they [Republicans and other opponents of the borrowing scheme] had some notion of what it was like to be on the other side of a gun, or [to have] a 200-pound man standing over you, telling you to submit.” 

A 200-pound man standing over you, telling you to submit? Say what? Did our Vice President really just blurt that out while talking about a “stimulus” plan? 

God bless Joe Biden, but he’s got some serious issues.  Better off keeping him as VP where he can do no real harm.
