Joe Biden has asked the base to stop whining.
You might as well ask the sun to stop shining.
It’s not a great way to get them all voting,
But let’s not indulge in premature gloating,
Though right now I’d guess Barack’s looking around
Beneath that huge bus for more space to be found
About the right size for a guy who’s named Joe.
With friends like that, who is in need of a foe?
Well, Joe Biden has really put his foot in it this time. His gaffe may not be a big f**king deal, but it couldn’t have come at a worse time. Just when Obama and the Democrats are trying to rally the troops, Biden insults them by insinuating they are complaining babies with nothing to complain about.
And this from an administration that boasts one of the whiniest presidents ever: Barack Obama. When will they learn that insulting potential voters—be they Republicans, Independents, Tea Partiers, or Democrats—is not a good way to win friends and influence people?
[NOTE: In related news, Obama told a NY fundraiser crowd recently, "Don’t compare us to the Almighty, compare us to the alternative."
I say live by the sword, die by the sword. If the crowd compares you to the deity, it's probably because you encouraged them to do so.
And now Obama is reduced to saying, "Well, at least the Democrats and I are better than the Republicans and Bush." Ah, how the mighty have fallen.]
