Latest Biden Gaffe: I Will “Strangle” Complaining Republicans
October 6, 2010
U.S (ChattahBox Political News) – Oh, Joe Biden…your habit of going all “Average Joe” and speaking before the filter between your brain and mouth engages provides endless entertainment. Whether it is congratulating the president with the ‘f’ word, telling Liberals to stop whining about policies, or his latest gaffe, telling Democratic voters he will strangle Republicans.
It wasn’t a serious threat, of course. It was an innocent enough comment that was once again said in the wrong place, at the wrong time, and about the wrong issue.
“If I hear one more Republican tell me about balancing the budget, I am going to strangle them,” the Vice President said in an address to Minnesota voters.
He then quickly added, “To the press, that’s a figure of speech.”
Already, I can see this becoming an attack topic by some conservative bloggers and news anchors, but hopefully they won’t present it as a genuine attack. This isn’t the same malicious/stupid type of comment we have been hearing in today’s dirty political world, such as Tea Party candidates who endorse illegal immigrants in WWII Japanese-style internment camps, or armed insurrections, or claim that Hitler coined the term “separation of church and state”.
This was just general stupidity that stemmed from Biden saying things casually, before he thinks it through. Can someone please get the man some cue cards?
