OUCH … “I don’t want to make a Blumenthal mistake” … Biden does it again.
VP Joeseph Biden has a few “misplaced words” of his own …
Vice President Joe Biden while visiting wounded soldiers at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center made a gaffe, or did he speak from the heart? Biden took a jab at the Democrat nominee for the US Senate from CT, Richard Blumental, by making a joke regarding his military service … “I didn’t serve in Vietnam. I don’t want to make a Blumenthal mistake here.”
While speaking at a barbecue for wounded soldiers at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, he commented about veterans coming home from the Vietnam War. Biden, who has a penchant for being loquacious, veered into the Connecticut Senate race.
“I didn’t serve in Vietnam. I don’t want to make a Blumenthal mistake here,” he said according to a pool report. “Our attorney general from Connecticut, God love him.”
Later he said “I have a bad habit of saying exactly what I think.”
I guess some one forgot to tell Joe Biden that Blumenthal was a Democrat. As Red State comments, Biden’s latest open mouth, insert foot statement is enough to make you wonder whether the White House wants to keep Senator Dodd’s old seat this Fall. A “Blumenthal mistake” is now part of the lexicon of the English language. Think the Democrat Senate candidate is not going to have much to explain before the November midterms? Think about it, a VP of your own party is referencing and reminding all what you did.
When it comes to misplaced words … Biden is King.
