VP Joe Biden With Big Gaffe … Blows So-Called Independent Greg Orman’s Cover in Kansas Senate Race …”He ‘Will Be With Us”
Did VP Joe Biden just make the gaffe or all gaffes that could cost so-called Independent Greg Orman the Kansas Senate election?
During an interview today with Connecticut radio station WPLR, Joe Biden made a remark that many “Jay Hawk” voters better take notice of before they cast their vote today. Biden was asked whether he thought the Democrats would retain control of the US Senate and what key battleground states are important to Democrats.Biden said, “We have a chance of picking up an independent who will be with us in the state of Kansas.” REALLY? Hey Kansas voters, Biden is referring to the so-called Independent Greg Orman. Hmm … Biden already knows that Orman is going to caucus with them … THAT HARDLY SEEMS INDEPENDENT NOW, DOES IT!
WAKE UP KANSAS AND VOTE FOR PAT ROBERTS!!!
Vice President Joe Biden blew Kansas independent Greg Orman’s cover in a radio interview today. Orman hasn’t stated which party he’ll caucus with in the Senate–actively avoiding announcing whether he’ll be with Republicans or Democrats–but Biden stated definitively that Orman “will be with us” if he’s elected.
“We have a chance of picking up an independent who will be with us in the state of Kansas,” said Biden, as he predicted the outcomes of various Senate races around the country.
Orman has stated that he’ll caucus with whichever party holds the balance of power in Kansas, but Republicans have long suspected he’s likely to join the Democrats’ side. Biden seemed to confirm that belief in this interview.
More from HOT AIR:
Given the lengths to which Democratic groups have gone to stealthily support Orman’s candidacy, Republicans who turn out to vote Orman are likely doing so at this point out of an all-consuming hatred for the unpopular incumbent, Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS). That’s forgivable, but it is not particularly rational – particularly if those Republican voters also hope to relegate Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) to the minority in the 115th Congress.
Michelle Obama Gaffe… Campains for Democrat Iowa Senate Candidate “Bruce Bailey” … Too Bad His Name is Bruce Braley
Michelle Obama’s Joe Biden moment … Note to First Lady Michelle Obama, when campaigning for a candidate, know their name.
While campaigning in Des Moines, Iowa on Friday for Democratic Senate candidate Bruce Braley, Michelle Obama referred to him on at least seven occasions as Bruce “Bailey”. After repeating the Democrat candidates incorrect name and proving the wrong web site she was finally corrected by shouts from the audience. One of the more ironic parts of Michelle Obama’s speech, seen HERE: 1:10 mark, was making her diatribe about her and Barack and her reminiscing about Iowa when her husband first ran for president. Imagine that, the Obama’s making the story all about them? She stated, “Because you all treated us like family and you didn’t even know us. You hosted us at house parties all across the states and i can remember almost every house I was in.” That’s interesting, she can remember the houses she was in, but not the Democrat candidates name she is campaigning for. Oops!!!
Michelle Obama also referred to Braley as a Marine Corps veteran. WRONG AGAIN!!! Bruce Brailey was never in the Marine Corps, his father was. However, the only name you really need to know in the Iowa Senate race is Republican candidate Joni Ernst, who actually is a member of the Army reserve and National Guard and likes “TO CUT PORK”.
While campaigning in Des Moines, Iowa Friday for Democratic Senate candidate Bruce Braley, she referred to him multiple times as “Bailey” before she was corrected by someone shouting from the audience.
The flub came despite a huge array of signs in the hall where she was speaking, all spelling Braley’s name correctly.
The first lady also referred to Braley as a Marine Corps veteran, which he is not. Braley’s staff said she meant to refer to his late father, Byard Braley, a Marine who fought at Iwo Jima.
Braley’s opponent in the Senate race, Republican Joni Ernst, is a member of the Army reserve and National Guard.
Dumb & Dumber … VP Joe Biden Praises Former Senator Bob Packwood With Long History Of Sexual Harassment at Women’s Issues Conference
Who needs Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels from ‘Dumb & Dumber’ when we have Joe Biden who can handle both roles … Hey, Joe, who is doing the real war on woman?
Leave it to Joe Biden to praise a former US Senator, who had to resign in disgrace amid accusations that he had sexually harassed numerous woman over decades, at of all things a conference on woman’s issues. Way to go Joe. It is just hard to believe that this man is a heartbeat away from the presidency. Maybe that is why no one impeaches Obama, we would get crazy Joe instead. At a woman’s issues conference on Friday, Vice President Joe Biden praised former GOP Senator Bob Packwood as a different type of Republican who was willing to reach across the aisle. Biden fondly, or is in fondle, reminisced of the days of yore about Bob Packwood. RUT-ROH. However, that is not the only thing that Packwood was willing to reach for.
Biden says, “this is not your father’s Republican party. I’m not making a moral judgement.” LOL, maybe he should have. Truth be known, The Republican party of today is more like your father’s Democrat party. As for today’s Democrats, this is not your father’s Democrat party of Harry S. Truman and John F. Kennedy, this party has lurched so far Left, they have become socialists.
Vice President Joe Biden stumbled again Friday.
Speaking at a Democratic event devoted to women’s issues, Mr. Biden made a favorable reference to former Sen. Bob Packwood, an Oregon Republican who resigned in 1995 amid accusations that he had sexually harassed women over a period of decades.
Mr. Biden mentioned Mr. Packwood — and also the late Maryland Republican Sen. Mac Mathias – as examples of GOP lawmakers willing to work across the aisle and support progressive legislation.
Today’s Republican Party, Mr. Biden said, “is a different breed of cat.”
“It was Republicans who expanded access to the polls,” Mr. Biden said at the Democratic National Committee’s Women’s Leadership Forum on Friday. “It was Republicans in the Judiciary Committee that did Motor Voter. It’s Republicans that were involved. Guys like Mac Mathias and Packwood and so many others. It wasn’t Democrats alone.”
What a DOLT!
Look What Happened When You Took Advice on Twitter Last Night from #Crack Smoking, Drunk Mayor Rob Ford
Would you expect anything less when taking advice from a crack smoking, alcoholic individual?
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford was at it again last night giving advice out to folks for the change to daylight savings time. Do you notice the problem from the tweet below? A note to Rob Ford, it’s “Spring forward, Fall back”. The crack smoking mayor instead told folks to turn their clocks back the wrong direction last night, Oops! Well, he had a 50-50 chance of getting it right. Needless to say the Twitter universe fired back mocking Rob Ford. At least he got the change batteries in smoke alarms right.
Why do the feeling that Rob Ford would make a great segment for a DISHTV commercial … ” … Don’t take advice from a crack smoking mayor “.
Twitter - @TOMayorFord
The comical part of this, beyond the obvious, is that this tweet blunder comes day after mayor’s social media manager resigns from job.
Tom Beyer, the longest-serving staffer of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, announced his resignation on Friday after serving as receptionist for more than three years, due to what he described to NOW Magazine writer Jonathan Goldsbie as “doctor’s orders, really.”
Among his duties, it turned out, was providing information that was served up through social media on the @TOMayorFord account — which the mayor himself has obviously never contributed directly to.
The incorrect tweet was eventually scrubbed from the account and replaced with a new, more accurate one.
Barack Obama Campaign Bundler Noah Bryson Mamet Nominated as Ambassador to Argentina Even Though Has Never Been to the Country
What a joke, Don’t Cry for Me Argentina … Obama Style. What else would you expect from a community organizer and a “Campaigner in Chief”?
Remember when Barack Obama campaigned that he was going to change the way things were done inside the Belt Way? Well you can forget that as Barack Obama is rewarding one of his campaign blunders with an ambassadorship to Argentina. Noah Bryson Mamet bundled more than $500,000 for President Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign and is now being rewarded for his fundraising. There is just one problem, the man who is supposed to represent the United states in Argentina has never been to the country. UNBELIEVABLE. One would think, as echoed at Slate, with the current state of affairs in Argentina, “delicate times, probably opportune times for a diplomat with years logged in South America”.
The Buenos Aires Herald reports, Mamet, who would be replacing Vilma Martínez after her term ended on July 4, is a veteran Democratic fund-raiser and consultant who has no evident experience with Latin American issues.
Sen. Marco Rubio shows his disbelief that the nominee for Ambassador to Argentina has never been there
Presidents often award diplomatic posts to campaign donors and fundraisers, but Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., suspects that Obama’s choice of ambassador to Argentina — a man who bundled more than $500,000 for President Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign, but who has never been to the country — is in over his head.
“Have you been to Argentina?” Rubio asked Noah Mamet during a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing Thursday.
“I haven’t had the opportunity yet to be there,” Mamet replied. “I’ve traveled pretty extensively around the world, but I haven’t yet had a chance [to visit Argentina].”
Rubio implied that Argentina is too important a country to be entrusted to a campaign donor rather than a professional, as is the case with some other diplomatic posts. “I don’t view this appointment as one — I think this is a very significant post,” he said.
UPDATE I: This nomination by Barack Obama gets worse, if possible. In the VIDEO below the US State Department spokesperson does not even know if the nominee for the position to be an Ambassador in a Latin American country speaks Spanish. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! How could you not know this? Is it any wonder how the Hillary Clinton lead State Department botched Benghazi?
“I don’t have his personal biography in front of me.”
This presidency cannot end soon enough!
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.
