Yes, I know those four words are redundant, but what, you didn’t know that already?
At an event at Union Station today where Vice President Joe Biden was heralding the $1.3 billion in investments in rebuilding train stations and passenger rails, a microphone picked up one of the former senator’s myriad Senate colleagues addressing him, formally, as “Mr. Vice President.”
That met with Vice President Biden’s standard reply.
“Gimme a f*&$#ing break,” he said, apparently unaware that the microphone was on.
One reader commented:
Good old Joe…always sticking his foot in his mouth. He’s a loose cannon, and I love it. His best gaffe occured last October when he warned:
“Mark my words. It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did JFK. The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47yr old senator president of the US. Remember I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”
With Obama emptying Gitmo and his decision to basically ignore the war on terror, Joe’s words ring true.
