Joe Biden “the Gifted Orator” Takes 6 Days Off Campaign Trail for Debate Prep … More Like So No Gaffes Occur to Provide Debate Material … SNL Gets it Right … It’s Up to Biden to get the Lead Back
Does Obama’s Hopes for Reelection rest upon the
“gifted orator” gaffe machine, Joe Biden?
Vice President Joe Biden takes nearly a week off to prep for the VP debates on Thursday, October 11. Let’s be serious, Biden is taking the week off prior to the debate so not to provide any more gaffes that GOP Vice-Presidential candidate Paul Ryan can use against Biden. But do not fret, Biden has already made enough gaffes during the 2012 campaign season to be used as fodder.
With just about a month until Election Day, Vice President Joe Biden is in the middle of taking nearly a week off the campaign trail. He will return to doing campaign events on Thursday, when he will debate Rep. Paul Ryan in the vice presidential debate.
As for the next three days, Biden will remain in Delaware. “On Monday through Wednesday, the Vice President will be in Wilmington, Delaware. There are no public events scheduled.”
Meanwhile, Thursday, October 11, is a big day for Biden. “On Thursday, the Vice President and Dr. Jill Biden will travel to Danville, Kentucky. In the evening, the Vice President will participate in the Vice Presidential Debate at Centre College. Dr. Biden will also attend. This event is open to pre-credentialed media.”
As reported at The Gateway Pundit, RNC Chair Reince Priebus deviled a nice under-handed compliment to Biden on Fox News this morning, “I expect Joe Biden to do a good job. He’s been debating since the early 1900?s. He’s done about 18 debates already… Joe Biden’s going to have to deliver big time based on the debate Barack Obama put on the board last Wednesday.” Ouch, that’s going to leave a mark.
OK, I am going to have to throw a penalty flag on Priebus. I am also going to call out Priebus for one comment that he made in that Joe Biden is a “gifted orator”. HUH? Really Reince give me a break. Enough of this setting the bar low of expectations. I expect Paul Ryan to be brilliant, have a command of the facts, the issues and lay out the Romney/Ryan plan for America. I expect Joe Biden to spin yarns of folksy nonsense. No one is tuning in for this debate to see the “Great Orator” Joe Biden. America will be watching to see if Biden shows up to the correct state where the debate is taking place, whether he praises any people of Indian decent in the audience for owning a Dunkin Donuts, or whether he compliments the moderator stating that was a good “F’n” question. Because make no mistake about it, Ryan is going to make reference that the “middle class has been buried the past 4 years”.
“I think people realize that Joe Biden is a gifted orator. He’s very good at rhetoric. And I think he’s very relatable,” Priebus said on CNN’s ‘State of the Union.’
I have to agree with The Other McCain 100%, it is ludicrous and shameful to think that Biden is a distinguished debtor or orator. The man is only known for his miscues when he speaks, not his speeches. America is setting their DVR’s to record the gaffes, not Biden’s vision for America. A debate, no teleprompters, and no prepared speech, this is what Bides gafftastic dreams are made of.
However, what is most amazing about all of this is that Obama’s reelection hopes could actually hinge on Biden. Because Obama bombed so badly in his Presidential debate in Denver, CO against Romney … the pressure is on Biden to stop the bleeding. How frightening must that be for Team Reelect Obama? Check out the SNL VIDEO below of Seth Meyers “Winner and Loser” at the 1:52 mark where Seth states, “BIGGEST WINNER, America … Is there anything more exciting than Joe Biden thinking it is up to him to get the lead back. IT’S TEVO TIME. There is like a 50% chance he is going to come out for the next debate with his shirt off.”
