Vice President Joe Biden Congratulates Boston’s Mayor Elect Marty Walsh … Only Problem, He Called the Wrong One
VP Joe Biden comes out of the witness protection program just long enough to make another gaffe …
After Massachusetts state representative Marty Walsh (D) won the mayors race in Boston Tuesday night, Biden phoned him to congratulate him and yelled into the phone, “You son of a gun, Marty! You did it!” Actually no Joe, you did it again. Made another gaffe that is. As it turns out Biden called the wrong Martin Walsh. Wow seriously, nice to see that Joe has all the important numbers saved in his smart phone. I guess in Joe’s case he is lucky he did not call Joe Walsh.
Yes operator, I would like to make a collect call to Marty Walsh …
Just minutes after the election returns arrived in Boston Tuesday night, Martin Walsh’s cellphone rang. It was the vice president of the United States, Joseph R. Biden, offering his congratulations.
“You son of a gun, Marty!” he thundered. “You did it!”
The only problem was, it was the wrong Marty Walsh. Biden had called the cellphone of Marty Walsh, a former aide to US Senator Edward M. Kennedy who is now the president of Gateway Public Solutions, a government relations firm in Boston.
At the time, this Marty Walsh said, he was sitting on the couch with his wife at their home in Natick, watching the election results on television. Meanwhile, the other Marty Walsh, the one who had just been elected mayor of Boston, was at the Park Plaza Hotel, celebrating his victory.
The less-famous Marty Walsh said he thanked Biden for his kind words, but told him that he reached the wrong Marty. He offered to help the vice president track down the right one, the one who had just been elected mayor.
NBC News reports that Biden was not the only Democrat who called the wrong Martin Walsh as well. Ooops! You mean these people are so connected that they have to look up their fellow Democrats names in the Yellow pages?
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak all called political consultant Martin Walsh and not mayor-elect Walsh, according to reports.
A White House phone operator even rang asking him to hold for President Barack Obama before Walsh explained they had the wrong man, the State House News Service reports.
Who needs Vice President Joe Biden when we have Barack Obama to make gaffes …
Barack Obama was in Buffalo, NY yesterday on his campaign 2016 bus tour to discuss how the government is some how going to make school more affordable. During his campaign-like speech Obama screwed up the the mayor’s name. Details, details. Why should our imperial president have to know anyone’s name. The crowd actually had to corrected him. But we need to give Obama some slack, he has been under a lot of pressure with the foundering economy, record food stamp participation and the Middle East on fire. Maybe he needs a vacation?
Exit question: Why is Obama campaigning again? Did I miss something or didn’t he win a second and final term in office in 2012? The only thing that Obama is capable of doing is do a stump speech. Although it would appear he can’t even get people’s names right.
Could you imagine the reaction of the MSM had George Bush made the same gaffe?
More Gaffes from the Smartest President Ever … President Barack Obama Calls the United States and Europe ‘Developing Countries’
MORE GAFFES FROM THE SMARTEST PRESIDENT EVER … IMAGINE HOW THE MSM WOULD HAVE RESPONDED IF GWB HAS SAID THE SAME?
As reported at the UK Telegraph, who knew that the United States and Europe were developing countries? HUH? How on earth does a President of the United States refer to America as a developing country? In a recent interview with The New York Times with Barack Obama given in Galesburg, Illinois, the site of his unimpressive and politically partisan speech on the economy at Knox College last week, President Obama had the following to say to reporters Jackie Calmes and Michael D. Shear.
Oops, where’s my damn teleprompter?
And one of the interesting things that we don’t talk about enough is the contrast between what’s happened in the United States and what’s happened in a lot of other developing countries, Europe in particular. It’s pretty rare where we have the chance to look at two policy approaches and follow them over several years and see which one worked. And the fact is there are a lot of European countries who followed the prescription that the House Republicans are calling for right now, and not only have they lagged well below where we’ve gone in terms of growth, in many cases their debt and their deficits have actually gone up because their economy is still effectively in recession. And although we haven’t been growing as fast as we would like, we have consistently outperformed those countries that followed the recipe that the House Republicans are offering right now.
Could you imagine that the MSM’s reaction would have been if George W/ Bush made the same comment?
Hmm, the “Developing States of America”? Well, if Obama has his way and keeps it up in destroying the United States with his liberal agenda, open boarder for illegals, high taxes and high unemployment, Obama might just turn us into a developing country yet.
US Secretary of State John Kerry Invents New Country of Kyrzakhstan … Imagine How the MSM would Have Reported if He were a Republican?
What a joke … You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression, unless you are a Democrat.
The new US Secretary of State John Kerry is off to a rather inauspicious start. In his first trip abroad during a speech he managed to invent a new country … Kyrzakhstan. It would appear that Obama’s Secretary of State needs a geography lesson. As reported at the Daily Mail, Kerry’s gaffe emerged as he arrived in London for the first leg of an 11-day tour of Europe and the Middle East, making his debut in his new job. Imagine, just imagine how this gaffe would have been reported if Kerry was a Republican. But of course there is no liberal, media double standard. With the bumbling, stumbling stupidity of and anti-Israel nomination of recently Senate approved Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and John “why the long face” Kerry, should we expect anything else from the failed Obama presidency? Dear God help us.
In an embarrassing slip of the tongue, the new US secretary of state praises US diplomats working to secure “democratic institutions” in a Central Asian country, which does not exist.
US Secretary of State John Kerry was referring to the poor, landlocked nation of 5.5 million, Kyrgyzstan, but he appeared to confuse it with its resource-rich neighbour to the north, Kazakhstan.
Daytona 500 Grand Marshal James Franco Disses Danica Patrick At Start of Race … “Drivers and Danica, start your engines.”
Just another reason why actors should stick to the script …
Did you miss it yesterday at the start of the Daytona 500? James Franco, the Grand Marshall of the Daytona 500, decided to go off script, added his PC’ness to the starting instruction and botched the entire thing. Instead of saying the obvious, “Gentleman and Danica, start your engines” as obviously Danica Patrick was the only female driver in the race. However, Franco flubbed the line and in doing so dissed Danica when he said, “Drivers and Danica, start your engines.” So I guess Danica is not a driver? The sad part was I actually think that Franco was trying to give Danica a special shout out and botched the it completely. Say, who was that doing the start if the race, Joe Biden?
With all due respect to the haters of Danica Patrick, she is a driver. Last time I checked she won the pole, was the first woman to ever lead a lap in the Daytona 500 and is one of a hand full of drivers to lead a lap in the Daytona 500 and the Indianapolis 500. Face it folks, Danica is finally doing the job on the track and getting the well deserved kudos after having received all of the media attention for her off the track exploits and Go Daddy racy commercials.
In fairness to James Franco, the traditional Daytona 500-opening phrase, “Gentlemen, start your engines,” doesn’t really work, what with Danica Patrick in the pole position and all.
It desperately needed a rewrite and, presumably, got one. So Franco probably meant to say, “Gentlemen and Danica” or “Drivers,” but, like hosting the Oscars, this is a tricky gig. And what came out was all wrong.
When will Hollywood actors ever learn to just stick to the script, they are hardly paid to ad lib.
Good grief, and this dude thinks he is going to get the Democrat nomination for president in 2016?
More from the idiocy of Obama’s Vice President Joe Biden, Poland, Portugal … what’s the difference? From the UK Telegraph comes another gaffe from Joe Biden. Just a note to the Libs who want to defend Biden, Poland is not a member of the Eurozone, and its economy is in considerably better shape than that of debt-ridden Portugal. Imagine how the liberal MSM would have reacted if it were a Republican who made such comments?
Hey, is that Biden making fun of Obama shooting a gun? Didn’t he get the memo about photo-shopping?
Joe Biden is in Europe this week, meeting with leaders in Berlin, Paris and London. Tomorrow he drops by Downing Street to see David Cameron, and Nick Clegg is also on the agenda. Over the weekend the US vice president attended the Munich Security Conference where he delivered a speech on the Obama administration’s foreign policy, expressing a willingness to sit down in direct negotiations with the Iranian regime over its nuclear programme, an approach that can only be described as naïve in the extreme. On Europe, he spoke about the “unfinished business in our common project of a Europe whole and free,” describing Europe as “America’s indispensable partner of first resort.”
Biden has a well-earned reputation as a gaffe-maker extraordinaire, and this speech was no exception. In a key passage on the Eurozone debt crisis, Biden referred to Portugal, as Poland, a mistake subsequently corrected in the official White House transcript:
We have seen positive steps recently to address the eurozone crisis, with the European Central Bank pledging to stand behind countries willing to launch reforms, and with Greece, Ireland, Poland* [*sic-Portugal], Spain and Italy all taking important steps to put their economies on a sounder path. Governments across the eurozone must also remain focused on growth and jobs. These may be fundamentally European problems, requiring European solutions, but their resolution has tremendous impact on the United States of America and on the global economy.
Frankly, I have lost count just how many gaffes this fool has made. But some how the Democrat. Lib and MSM approach is that if you do it enough, it is not reportable. But as Weasel Zippers states, Biden’s not content being the laughingstock of America, he wants to go global. Yup, sounds like presidential timber to me.
YIKES, Easily the Worst Basketball Free Throw Shot in History Courtesy of Appalachian State’s Center Brian Okam … “Good Lord”
This might be the promo for the next Southwest commercial … Wanna Get Away?
I had previously thought that the worst free throw shot I had ever seen was in the movie ‘Hoosiers’ when Ollie of Hickory badly missed his underhand free throw. Of course that was a movie, the following was not. This poor guy is never going to live this one down. From the viral video below comes Brian Okam of Appalachian State and easily the worst free throw ever … “GOOD LORD”!!!
Elections certainly do have consequences. Barack Obama’s VP Joe Biden told Hurricane Sandy victims in New Jersey over the weekend while inspecting storm damage weeks after the super storm, “You’ve got a homeboy in the deal who gets it.” Huh, a home boy? Wow Joe, how fly. Yup, no double standard here, imagine if Biden was not a democrat? Think his “hommie” would have gone unnoticed? So this is how Obama/Biden connected with Americans. Unreal. Thanks America for voting this guy a heart beat away from the presidency. I think the gun shop owner in Arizona may have gotten it 100% correct.
“If you’re not an Easterner it’s hard to understand that the ocean to us is the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone Park and everything else combined. It is a gigantic part of not only our economy but who we are. It’s a gigantic part of the culture as well.
“And every time the rest of the country is in real trouble, New Jersey and Delaware and New York and Connecticut, et cetera, we respond, we respond. And it’s going to be a heavy lift. These are difficult times in terms of budgets but the president has made it clear that we are going to do everything we can to make sure that the Corps is fully funded, that FEMA has their needs and that all the programs that exist under the auspices of the federal government not only continue to exist but are funded so that we can make sure that this area of the country is fully fully fully restored.
“So as the president said when he was up here with the governor, we’re not going anywhere. We’re not going anywhere. And you’ve got a homeboy in the deal who gets it.”
What media ignored gaffe will come next from the first white-black VP, Joe Biden? Word!
Barack Obama Tells Supports in Ohio, “Voting is the best Revenge” … Revenge? How Ugly and Small Minded Could This President Really Be?
LOST IN SMALLNESS AND UGLINESS.
VOTING IS THE BEST REVENGE … DOES AMERICA REALLY NEED A PRESIDENT WHO BELIEVES SUCH AN UGLY THOUGHT?
President Barack Obama told supporters in Springfield, OH on Friday , “Voting is the best revenge”. What the hell is Obama talking about? Voting is equal to revenge in the mind of this president, really? Once again Obama goes off his prepared speech and makes a major gaffe that would make Joe Biden proud.
I think we now know why Barack Obama has been the most partisan president ever. We can also add ugly, small minded and divisive. I think we also know why it is time to send Obama packing. Of all the words one could come up with “Voting is the best _______ “, I can honesty say I could come up with hundreds of words and “revenge” would never have been even contemplated.
Barack Obama has some explaining. However, just like with ever Benghazi, we will never hear it. The reelect Obama team has run one of the most negative, vile and disgusting campaigns ever. The positive message from 2008 of “Hope and Change” has instead in 2012 been one of smear and defame. However, what does one expect when Obama could not run on his failed economic, job growth and $16 trillion debt. As the Washington Examiner discusses, what was Obama talking about and his campaign will have a difficult time spinning this.
The problem is, the president was actually not speaking in the context of Romney’s highly-controversial ads about bailed-out Chrysler adding production of Jeeps in China. In fact, Obama had not said a word about the Jeep controversy when he said “revenge.” His speech had touched on Hurricane Sandy, on the progress the American economy has made in the last few years, on his national security accomplishments, on the choice Americans will make on November 6, on Bill Clinton’s record — on a lot of things, but not on Jeep.
And even after the “revenge” remark, it took Obama six paragraphs to get to his discussion of Jeep. The bottom line is, while it is impossible to know what was in the president’s mind, he simply was not talking about Jeep when he told voters that “Voting is the best revenge.”
Obama’s true motivations shine through as that of a community agitator, not a president.
Joe Biden is 2016 dreamin’ … Because Biden is just so Presidential.
Biden has not even completed making gaffes as VP in the 2012 Presidential election and this guy is making comments about running on 2016? Sorry Joe but the only reason you are VP is because you happen to the the running mate of the first black president. No one voted for you as frankly you scared the living daylights out of most people that you are a heart beat away from the presidency.
“Look, I’m not trying to talk you into voting for me, I just wanted to say hi to you. And after it’s all over, when your insurance rates go down, then you’ll vote for me in 2016. I’ll talk to you later,” Biden said, according a pool reporter traveling with the vice president.
Biden, of course, hasn’t said whether he would run for president in 2016 and has been intensely focused on getting President Obama reelected next week, serving as the president’s chief attack dog on the trail.
I am going to go out on a limb and say there is no way Biden in the Democrat nominee for president in 2016. But as we stated above. Joe has not even finished making an ass out of himself in 2012 yet. Today Biden told supporters, “As they say in my business. I’m Going to Give You the Whole Load”. Um, huh? Exactly what business are you referring to Joe?
Who would trust this man with the keys to the White House? Some how I doubt that America will be so forgiving with Biden’s gaffes when he is running for the top spot as opposed to Obama’s cabana boy.
