Joe Biden’s Idiotic Comment: “We Have to Go Spend Money to Keep From Going Bankrupt”


At Scared Monkeys we have long used the following movie quote whenever something so absurd and foolish is said. Biden’s recent comments on “spending money to keep from going bankrupt” is as fitting an ignorant phrase as ever. Here’s to you Joe Biden, or should we say Billy Madison Biden:

What you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul. (H/T: Wizbang appears to have used the same quote)

How did these people get elected? I would please ask the American voters to maybe actually pay attention during the 2010 and 2012 elections. Pretend like you are voting for American Idol or and it matters!

VP Joe Biden opens mouth and more nonsense comes out; however, this is not a gaffe, this is what these fools actually believe, Stop the ACLU tends to agree. Bankrupting America in order to save it … there is some circular logic.

VP Joe Biden in his own words as he talks at an AARP town hall meeting in Virginia. (Audio)

“We Have to Go Spend Money to Keep From Going Bankrupt”


The Gateway Pundit provides the Obama US Budget deficit numbers … spend, spend, spend.

But how are we spending money, if we are broke? Classic Values provides a reminder of Barack Obama’s recent comments that “…we are out of money now. We are operating in deep deficits …”

Hot Air says it as simply as it can be stated: Biden: We must bankrupt the country to avoid bankrupting it

      of course, obama in his naacp speech again blames the republicans for something he is not capable of repairing . the economy is YOUR’S barry why don’t you go ahead and say the obvious that you are not qualified to be President ?
      you just don’t have it son and with joe at your side, you might just want to step down quietly.

      Joe Biden is the guy in Vegas who is losing his ass and is down and couple hundred grand and keeps doubling down and getting further in the hole. That’s fine if the guy is loaded and can AFFORD to keep doubling down. FACT is: WE, US, we don’t have any money to keep doubling down and this came from the head honcho himself, said it during the All-Star game…

      They are dangerously close to bankrupting this country with cap and trade and health care reform. EVERYBODY KNOWS it!

    3. Brenda in Virginia on July 17th, 2009 9:21 am

      Yup, our AEP electric bills are going up 19% and the CEO came on the news and said he was sorry since there was already an increase this year…BUT…the new cap and trade stuff is forcing this. There is no other options in order to be able to comply with the government’s new “green” laws. he also said to expect to see this everywhere electrical energy is used…which is everywhere.

      Thanks Obama (not).

    4. Dolf on July 17th, 2009 9:43 am

      ps. The US was already broke in the Bush days.

      and Brenda…energy prices go up everywhere

      we pay 2-3 times as much for our fuell then in the US (you were based in Italy right?)

    5. Michelle Smith on July 17th, 2009 9:47 am

      We’re mad as hell & not going to take it anymore. Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi & all of Congress needs to go. Clean house & start over. Republicans, Democrats, all of them. GOOD-BYE!

    6. Scott on July 17th, 2009 10:16 am

      #4 – you NOT know of what you speak…more of the same liberal mantra….of course he inherited a falling economy from Clinton because of the dot come bubble that burst.

      And no, energy prices do NOT have to go up everywhere and they do NOT ever need to be doubled. What a loser cop-out liberal excuse. It will COST more to go green. Yeah, real efficient…LOL I wonder whay you pay 2-3X as much for your fuel. Geez..Hello? The exact reason OUR country, MY country (not yours even though you stick your fat ass nose in it for some reason acting as if you know what you are talking about) doesn’t want cap and trade nor this bureaucratic filled health care reform.

      You’re just a complete and utter buffoon! No other conclusion for you sorry self.

      Joe and Barry do not have the experience to
      extrapolate the effects of their actions except
      to assume that debt upon debt is going to
      bankrupt the Country. Politicians (both parties)
      were and are the root cause of the debacle.

      Time to empty the garbage!

    8. rightknight on July 17th, 2009 10:36 am

      A great analogy is ‘Battered Wife Syndrome”. (surely
      this is not the first observation of that).

    9. twolf on July 17th, 2009 10:53 am

      Looks like Sanford was listening…..when he was spending away on flights…hotels…etc..after blasting others for “over spending” on such same issues….What a joke…

    10. SUPER DAVE on July 17th, 2009 11:45 am

      tiny wolf: guess what ? your taxes will go up, so will your utility bills, credit card bills, gasoline,water,or do you not have the capacity to understand that ?
      i guess obama worshippers do not care what happens to their lives or family, only to worship the false idol that destroys all only to reap the benefits for himself. he cares nothing about you or the pitiful others that paid his way. you were used and now you will be dumped with the other trash.

    11. SUPER DAVE on July 17th, 2009 11:48 am

      how does it feel to be a democrat and to know that you have already been duped for at least 600 million dollars ? i know i know, democrats love being screwed literally by obama.

    12. buster on July 17th, 2009 2:15 pm

      Reminds me of the south park episode when the little boy comes up with the idea of sitting on food and crapping out of your mouth. In this case Biden didnt have to sit on food to crap out of his mouth !!!
      Thats it I am to buy property near $hit Creek so I can open up a Paddle Store.

    13. twolf on July 17th, 2009 3:29 pm

      Hold on a sec Super Nut…I don’t worship anyone…let alone Obama. Stop watching Hanity and Beck…scare tactics don’t really work on me.
      And gas..if you payed attention was most expensive last year..when your supreme leader was in command. Oh..b.t.w…my utilities went up last year too..should I blame that on Bush as well? I could go on and on….blame blame blame…as you do. And Bush care about me? I think not….he gave to the wealthy remember?

    14. Steve Holloway on July 17th, 2009 3:53 pm

      Out of their own pie holes. We are bankrupt or just about. This nation is dead and you just don’t know it yet. Well I told you so. Change you can believe in…yeah right.

    15. PlatinumSkye on July 17th, 2009 6:12 pm

      The U.S. is doomed, and I feel that us in Canada aren’t that far off if Ignatieff takes over Harper in the fall.

    16. PA Mom on July 17th, 2009 9:20 pm

      Who ever made the expression, “Common Sense?” In this day and age, sense is anything but common.

    17. Michelle Smith on July 17th, 2009 10:49 pm

      Face it. The guy campaigned on Hope & Change. The only hope we have is that we have any change left over after each paycheck. So much for transparency, the guy won’t even release his College transcripts, his birth certificate, his passport. We know nothing about this man that has been given command of our country to do with as he pleases. So far all he’s done is run up the debt even more. Spend, spend, spend, and tax, tax, tax. And yes everybody’s electric bill went up but it’s nothing compared to what it will be when/if this cap & trade goes through. Get ready for it. Those power hungry folks in the white house want to control our health care too. Do you really want the government in control of your health care? God help us

    18. Brenda in Virginia on July 18th, 2009 7:25 am

      Hey Dolf..yeah, but THIS one is 100% directly related to the cap and trade bill. We already had our normal yearly increase like every year, not a 2nd one on top of it ever before and I’ve been in VA over 20 yrs.

      No matter, our house has a contract on it after only 30 days on the mkt and we’re rebuilding on some land we own over a mile off the hardtop. We’ll be using wind/solar and will be completely off the freaking grid. Other than cell phones and internet (we won’t get cable), we will not have ANY public utility. Boy I cannot wait.

      Also, we’re looking for a greenhouse for winter garden and the more self-dependent we are, the LESS dependent we’ll be on mommy government which is Obamanation’s intent…screw people who wish to live free and force them under a yoke of taxes and other burdens to ruin their lives.

      I encourage anyone who can to get off the grid and become independent as you can while it’s still legal to do so!!!

    19. megamooo on July 18th, 2009 9:28 am
