The Obama administration has killed bin Laden, they’ve killed Awlaki, but the one thing they cannot do? Aside from create jobs, mend the economy, put this country back on track and make friends with the people across the aisle — all those aside, the one thing they can’t seem to do is to get Joe Biden to shut up.
He embarrasses himself and the country so often, it’s getting to the point where we should wonder if this is some game he’s playing. Is he punking us?
Today, in a radio interview on Tampa’s WFLA 970, the question was posed to him about what he thought of Van Jones trying to make a movement out of the “Occupy Wall Street” group.
He replied, “I really don’t know about the Van Jones group, except what I read in the press.” This is when an aide should have shoved a note in front of him (or the photo above) preventing him from sticking his foot further into his mouth, but that’s not what happened. Biden continued, “There’s a great frustration here in America that the two parties haven’t been able to get very much moving. We have been in this period where there is just nothing but fighting, and so you have on the one hand Van Jones’ guys. whoever he is… ”
Go ahead, America, let your jaw drop. Meanwhile, the host of the program cut in at that time to let the Gaffe-meister know that Van Jones worked for the Obama administration briefly as the “Green Czar”, until there was that unfortunate incident about his past coming back to haunt him in 2009. You remember, something about Marxist ties, petitions alleging that Bush was behind 9/11, that sort of thing.
This just goes to show you how much trouble we’re really in.
