Joe Biden Watch: Shove IT Down Bush’s Throat

Posted Posted in Giuliani Notes, Joe Biden, President 2008

Biden on Iraq bill: “We’re going to shove it down his throat.”

Blunt talk from Joe Biden, picked up by C-Span answering a man’s question at Jim Clyburn’s fish fry April 27 in Columbia, S.C.

Biden is asked what he’ll do when Bush, as is expected, vetoes the Iraq funding bill.

First, he talks about his son, and the equipment soldiers need — “The idea that we’re not building new Humvees with the V-shaped things is just crap. Kids are dying that don’t have to die.”

And: “Second thing is, we’re going to shove it down his throat.”

Slow Joe Biden placing the foot in his mouth again.

Hey Joe, if you know that military equipment is inferior how about legislating a change and voting for increased funding?

Oh yeah – you want to squeeze the President for partisan political gain.

Thanks for being so DISINGENUOUS.

Joe Biden Watch: Biden UNBRIDLED

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, John Edwards, President 2008

***Update***

Matt Drudge is having a field day with Biden’s “CLEAN BLACK” remark – in red below.

Biden Calls Obama To Clarify

Joe Biden called Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) to clarify his “clean” comment to the New York Observer, Biden told reporters in a conference call this afternoon. Biden said Obama told him: “You don’t have to explain anything to me. I know exactly what you meant.” Asked to clarify his comments, where he said Obama was “articulate and bright and clean,” Biden said he “really” regretted the word “clean” was taken out of context. Biden: “My mother has an expression clean as a whistle sharp as a tack, that was the context.” As to the effect it might have on the African-American vote, Biden: “I have no doubt that Jesse Jackson and other black leaders … knew exactly what I meant. We have a very, very long relationship. … There will be no misunderstanding.”

Biden said of the Observer piece: “I believe I was quoted accurately but they weren’t meant to take shots.” As for his Democratic competition, Biden: “I think they’re all great. I think I’m better.”

NYO: Biden Unbound: Lays Into Clinton, Obama, Edwards

Loquacious Senator, Democratic Candidate on Hillary: ‘Four of 10 Is the Max You Can Get?’ Edwards ‘Doesn’t Know What He’s Talking About’

Senator Joseph Biden doesn’t think highly of the Iraq policies of some of the other Democrats who are running for President.

To hear him tell it, Hillary Clinton’s position is calibrated, confusing and “a very bad idea.” John Edwards doesn’t know what he’s talking about and is pushing a recipe for Armageddon in the Middle East. Barack Obama is offering charming but insubstantial fluff. And all of them are playing politics.

“Let me put it this way,” Mr. Biden said. “You didn’t hear any one of them get in this debate at all until they announced for President.”

Good ol’ “SLOW” Joe Biden.

One of the reasons why Senator Biden receives his nickname is not because he is NOT bright or is SLOW but he does the damnest things – like plagiarisng his speeches from a British politician.

So, let’s restate the quotes:

Hillary Clinton:

Her Iraq War position is “calibrated, confusing and a very bad idea.”

“From the part of Hillary’s proposal, the part that really baffles me is, ‘We’re going to teach the Iraqis a lesson.’ We’re not going to equip them? O.K. Cap our troops and withdraw support from the Iraqis? That’s a real good idea.”

The result of Mrs. Clinton’s position on Iraq, Mr. Biden says, would be “nothing but disaster.”

“Everyone in the world knows her,” he said. “Her husband has used every single legitimate tool in his behalf to lock people in, shut people down. Legitimate. And she can’t break out of 30 percent for a choice for Democrats? Where do you want to be? Do you want to be in a place where 100 percent of the Democrats know you? They’ve looked at you for the last three years. And four out of 10 is the max you can get?”

******

Barack Obama:

“Charming but insubstantial fluff.”

…about Mr. Obama. “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” he said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”

But—and the “but” was clearly inevitable—he doubts whether American voters are going to elect “a one-term, a guy who has served for four years in the Senate,” and added: “I don’t recall hearing a word from Barack about a plan or a tactic.”

******

John Edwards:

“I don’t think John Edwards knows what the heck he is talking about,” Mr. Biden said, when asked about Mr. Edwards’ advocacy of the immediate withdrawal of about 40,000 American troops from Iraq. “John Edwards wants you and all the Democrats to think, ‘I want us out of there,’ but when you come back and you say, ‘O.K., John’”—here, the word “John” became an accusatory, mocking refrain—“‘what about the chaos that will ensue? Do we have any interest, John, left in the region?’ Well, John will have to answer yes or no. If he says yes, what are they? What are those interests, John? How do you protect those interests, John, if you are completely withdrawn? Are you withdrawn from the region, John? Are you withdrawn from Iraq, John? In what period? So all this stuff is like so much Fluffernutter out there. So for me, what I think you have to do is have a strategic notion. And they may have it—they are just smart enough not to enunciate it.”

**********

Flap supposes there is NO 11th Commandment for the Democrat Party: “Thou shalt not speak ill of a fellow Democrat.”.

Wait for the debates – this will be good.

Oh yes, Flap almost forgot. Slow Joe announced this morning he is seeking the Presidency.

“After nine months of doing this, there is no exploratory committee _ I’m running,” the Delaware senator told The Associated Press.

Remember Slow Joe’s previous racist remark?

Senator Joe Biden Watch: Biden Wows the GOP in South Carolina

Posted Posted in Joe Biden, President 2008

Democratic presidential hopeful Sen., Joe Biden, center, D-Mass., gets advise from New Hampshire state Sen. Sylvia Larson in this July 22, 2006, file photo. Presidential hopefuls are setting the ground game seeking political activist to help them win the nation’s first presidential primary and boost their political campaign.

The State (Via Hugh Hewitt): Biden charms local GOP

It was unlike most Columbia Rotary Club luncheons.

The speaker was U.S. Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware, a likely candidate for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination.

The chief topic: the Iraq war.

The audience: predominantly Republican.

Biden humorously took note of that in his opening remarks.

“I want to thank you all for allowing me a trip here to speak to only Republicans. It’s like my hometown. I just won every district in my state except the one I live in,” he quipped.

The crowd howled.

The senator then pounced on a member’s announcement that the club would hold its annual Christmas party at the state Department of Archives and History where members could view the original copy of the state’s Articles of Secession.

Biden asked, “Where else could I go to a Rotary Club where (for a) Christmas party the highlight is looking at the Articles?”

Biden was on a roll.

Delaware, he noted, was a “slave state that fought beside the North. That’s only because we couldn’t figure out how to get to the South. There were a couple of states in the way.”

The crowd loved it.

Joe! Joe! Joe. What are we going to do with you?

As Hillary, Barrack and John Edwards begin organizing in Iowa and New Hampshire among the Democrat faithful, Joe Biden is campaigning before Republicans in South Carolina.

Is this why everyone refers to you as SLOW JOE?

The first question after the speech was direct.

“Senator, will you please do me a favor and run for president?” pleaded Debbie Yoho with the Greater Columbia Literacy Council.

The Rotary discourages discussion of politics at its meetings.

Contacted later, Yoho said she was “blown away” by Biden’s speech. “I think he is the man of the hour. … He’s mesmerizing.”

Wrong crowd, Senator. First, you gotta win the Demcorat primary election.

Democratic Senator Joe Biden listens to testimony on on Iran’s nuclear ambitons during a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing in September 2006 in Washington. Biden, who is expected to be the new chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee when Democrats take over the chamber next year, said he favored a variation of the ‘Go Home’ pullout option.

One of the reasons why Senator Biden receives his nickname is not because he is NOT bright or is SLOW but he does the damnest things – like plagiarisng his speeches from a British politician.

Sorry Joe, you ain’t gonna win the DEMOCRAT primary in South Carolina or in any state.

Stay tuned…….

John Bolton Watch: Biden – “And I Think John Bolton’s Going Nowhere”

Posted Posted in Joe Biden, John Bolton, Politics, United Nations

boltonnovember9aweb

U.S. Ambassador John Bolton, left, votes during the 49th round of voting in the United Nations General Assembly, New York, Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2006. Panama was chosen to represent Latin America in the UN Security Council after a three-week deadlock vote that saw Guatemala and Venezuela fail in their rival bids for the seat.

Reuters: Biden says U.N. envoy Bolton “going nowhere”

John Bolton’s troubled nomination as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations is “going nowhere,” a key Democratic senator said on Wednesday after Democrats scored big in mid-term elections.

Sen. Joseph Biden of Delaware, who is expected to chair the Senate Foreign Relations Committee if Democratic control of the U.S. Senate is formally confirmed, told reporters:

“I never saw a real enthusiasm (for Bolton’s nomination) on the Republican side to begin with. There’s none on our side. And I think John Bolton’s going nowhere.”

Slow Joe Plagiarising Biden will NOT chase Bolton out of the United Nations. But, the reader has to wonder why Ambassador Bolton would wish to stay? Bolton has a “recess appointment” and his term expires on January 7, 2007 when the new Congress (Democratically controlled) is installed.

The GOP could call up his nomination prior to January – as they did immediately after Labor Day. But, a Senator, placed a hold on the nomination and the Democrats threatened a filibuster. This attempt then died.

Bolton could be re-appointed for an additional year, but with NO pay.

Bolton, the controversial former undersecretary of state in charge of non-proliferation, was nominated by President George W. Bush to be U.N. envoy in March 2005.

But after his confirmation was blocked in the Republican-led Senate, Bush made a recess appointment, which will last until the new Congress convenes in January 2007.

After Tuesday’s elections Democrats now control the U.S. House of Representatives and probably the Senate as well.

Before voters cast their ballots, there was talk of Bush re-submitting Bolton’s nomination.

Another possibility was having Bush appoint Bolton to another U.S. government job so he could still be paid but assigning him to work at the U.N.

Senate Democratic aides said they did not know if such a move would be legal.

boltonnovember9bweb

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton is seen in New York October 26, 2006. In an effort to toughen a European draft resolution on Iran , the United States wants the text to say that Tehran’s nuclear ambitions posed a threat to international peace and security, diplomats said. Bolton circulated among a small group a series of amendments, including stronger language on the threat posed by Iran.

If Flap were Bolton I would immediately resign the United Nations ambassadorship and seek employment outside the government. Now that President Bush is a “lame duck” the White House has NO resolve to fight for Bolton.

John, write a book and obtain a university appointment. The United Nations job while being high profile is worthless in any case.

And for the GOP Senate, this is another example of how you squandered the hard fought majority you enjoyed the past few years. And why conservatives lost confidence in you.

Stay tuned……
