Son of Gaffe-Tastic: Beau Biden, VP Biden’s Son Attacks Romney, But Hits North Carolina Democratic Governor Bev Perdue Instead During Speech in NC
The acorn does not fall far from the tree now does it?
What is it with the Biden men, do they all wear a “G” on their chest? Welcome to son of “Gaffe-Tastic”. Those who attempt to make political insults may want leave such actions to the professionals. In what can only be called, a chip off the old block, Beau Biden, the son of VP Joe Biden, attempted to attack the presumptive GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney by saying, “I’ve never met a successful politician who didn’t run again.” Umm, oops. The problem being that Beau Biden was speaking at the North Carolina Democratic Party’s Jefferson-Jackson dinner and Democrat North Carolina Governor Perdue had decided against running for re-election this year. Wanna get Away?
Beau Biden scores a 10 on Joe’s Gaff-o-meter
On Saturday evening, Vice President Joe Biden’s son and Delaware attorney general Beau Biden tried to attack presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, but the punch ended up hitting North Carolina’s Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue instead.
“I’ve never met a successful politician who didn’t run again,” Biden said during his keynote address at the North Carolina Democratic Party’s Jefferson-Jackson dinner, in an attempt to attack Romney’s decision against running for re-election after his sole term as Massachusetts’ governor. Biden had characterized that comment as “off script” just before making it.
The crowd “collectively groaned,” according to the Raleigh News and Observer, because Perdue had decided against running for re-election this year.
Perdue’s administration has been plagued with its own scandals and gaffes — including alleged sexual harassment among staffers at the North Carolina Democratic Party (NCDP) and Perdue’s suggestion that the country “suspend” congressional elections in order to “help this country recover.”
Note to the Democrat insulters … before you mouth off, know the room and know the politician of the state that you are talking in.
