I’m LOVING the “new civility,”, aren’t you?
Last Friday, the 47th Vice-President of the United F’ing States, Joseph Robinette “Joe” Biden, Jr., openly and unabashedly said the following at a Teamsters convention in Las Vegas:
“And don’t any of you, by the way, any of you guys vote Republican,” Biden said. “I’m not supposed to say, this isn’t political. …don’t come to me if you do! You’re on your own, Jack!”
Breathtaking, isn’t it? Remember the good old days when the worst thing a VP did was misspell “potato?”
This should pretty much clear up any lingering doubts we may have about the Democrat’s view of the majority of this country after last November. They were ushered into office in 2008 like the Second Coming, only to be stomped like narcs at a biker rally, so of course, no reasonable conservative ever really believed they’d learned anything other than bloody constraint.
That said, to call this man’s outburst a textbook example of petulant impertinence is an understatement. Yes, Biden has a long, notorious history of over-exuberant, emotional outbursts and impulsive rhetoric, but for the life of me, I cannot recall a single instance where an elected official of such stature has so blatantly informed the public that if they dare oppose him, they can go kick rocks.
“Audacious” isn’t nearly the right word for these people. Halperin nailed it…he just needed to widen his target.
ADDENDUM (from Dan): Imagine if, as part of his official duties, a Republican vice president said when, speaking to an NRA meeting as part of his official duties (i.e., not a campaign function) and said, “And don’t any of you, by the way, any of you guys vote Democrat.”
