And you wounder why Team Obama thought different and pulled Biden from going to the RNC.
Vice President Joe Biden has been in the where are they now files for the past week as the Republican National Convention was successfully going on in Tampa, FL. However, it did not take long for the gaffe prone Biden to, well make another public gaffe.Biden introduces himself to a table of Greek men as Bidenopoulos. Huh? Honestly, these days I am surprised that Biden even knows his name.
Hard to believe this man is a heart beat away from the Presidency
Approaching a table of men he knew to be Greek, the VP said, “I’m Joe Bidenopoulos.”
“Ask George,” he said – unclear who George was, maybe someone at the table –“who’s the most Greek Irishman he’s ever known.” Sounded like Biden was suggesting he is.
As stated at Hot Air, this gaffe is some what harmless, but imagine the flack that would have been caused if Biden went up to a table of Rabbi’s and introduced himself as Joe Bidenberg or Bidenstein? Very true. Also, Going up to a table of men and introducing himself as, “I’m Joe Bidenopoulos” is hardly the same as his “put y’all back in chains” comment. One is a silly comment just trying to blend in to the room, kinda like when Obama develops a Southern drawl when he campaigns in the South. The latter “chains” comment is a hateful and divisive attempt to race bait, divide and fan the flames of racism.
It really is hard to believe that Biden is a heart beat away from the presidency. Democrats made Sarah Palin an issue in 2008, damn these days with Biden I am waiting for him to show up to a campaign appearance without pants. It probably really need to be an issue in 2012 that Biden is hardly capable of stepping into be President of the United States.
