You were all scared when Palin ran for VP because she would supposedly be "one heartbeat away from the presidency" and you though she was too dumb. Well Joe Biden IS NOW "one heartbeat away from the presidency" and he's even dumber than Palin. Did any of you even heard this:

Joe Biden’s denunciation of his own campaign’s ad to Katie Couric got so much attention last night that another odd note in the interview slipped by.
He was speaking about the role of the White House in a financial crisis.
“When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the princes of greed,” Biden told Couric. “He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened.’”
How ignorant is this statement? Let me count the ways:

  • Cont: Franklin Roosevelt didn’t become president in 1929 during the crash. He won the 1932 election and took office in 1933, largely because of the 1929 crash and the incompetent protectionist policies that transformed it into a Great Depression. If FDR and President Herbert Hoover didn’t talk about the “princes of greed” in 1929, by the time FDR took over, that kind of populist rhetoric had certainly taken root. FDR greatly escalated the scope of federal government to institute the kind of redistributionism that Obama and Biden now champion. If Hoover or FDR appeared on television in 1929 or even 1933, only a few hundred people would have seen it. Television was still an experimental medium and wouldn’t be introduced to the public for at least another decade.

  • You know whats said?/ Is that most of us saw that Palin was McCain's tool to try to win the female voters that supported Clinton. It is sad that palin didn't see this as well.

    I thought that it was insulting.

  • Hahaha. Biden is a fool. He will be keeping us entertained for a while, as long as they let him in front of the cameras. Maybe that's the plan, if they give Biden enough airtime, anyone that is a threat to Obama would simply see that Biden is bat sh*t crazy and we would be doomed (not that we might not be already).

  • "Obama is President, so why are we talking about Biden? "

    Palin didn't even get that far - why are we talking about her?
