Vice President Joe Biden got off the leash (again) today suggesting that people should avoid trains, subways and aircraft until the N1H1 (formerly swine) flu passes.
Biden was in trouble with airlines and everyone else for his dim bulb remarks.
The U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security got in trouble with U.S. military veterans and Canadians in just a few weeks time. And refused to say the word “terrorists” at her confirmation hearigs.
Then she had to apologize to the American Legion.
Today she bailed out Joe Biden. Where I come from, the U.S. Navy, juniors can’t bail out seniors. Blame goes up the chain of command. But Barack was busy bailing out Chrysler. To hell with Biden.
If you had told me that three months ago I would have said “No Way!
Ed Morrissey at Hot Air said today, “Ironically, Barack Obama and the Democrats have started becoming French at the exact same time as the French have started becoming more American in economics … or at least more British…”
That is a hoot since Sarkozy said Obama was “unoriginal, unsubstantial and overrated.”
Sounds a lot like “overpaid, oversexed and over here.”
How about the President of the United States mugging with Hugo Chavez while hoding the numero uno anti-American text in the Latin American world — in Latin American history?
How about the first cabinet meeting (after 90 days) and bragging about saving $100 million?
Big deal. No way.
How about Numero Uno flying to Iowa to give a 20 minute talk on energy conservation and then flying home?
How about insulting the PM of the UK and the queen for foolish, ill- conceived gifts, like an IPod made in China and DVDs that don’t work in Britain?
Or returning the bust of Sir Winston to Gordon Brown. Ever hear of storage? That’s what the Smithsonian is for: unwanted White House decor….
Or giving a giant red reset button to Russia with the word mis-spelled so it says “discount”? Or was it “overcharge”?
If you told me a few months ago that the U.S. would barrow so much that China virtually owned the U.S. I would have asked: are you on drugs?
If you had said the government will own GM and Chrysler and most of the major banks I would have howled with laughter last Christmas….
Now that isn’t even funny….
If you had told me the U.S. economy was losing more than 600,000 jobs every month in 2009 I would have cried….
If you had told me the president suggested and the congress passed (without reading) the biggest government give-away of tax dollars in history and that didn’t even make a dent I can’t say what I might have done….
It is just too crazy….
If you had told me the president, this president, President Obama would pass and sign (in secret) a budget loaded with earmarks after he campaigned against earmarks I would have howled in protest….
If you had told me conservatives took to the streets with signs of protest? I would have laughed out loud (LoL).
But if you had told me three months ago that Nancy Pelosi and Barney Frank were saying stupid stuff left and right I would have said, “What’s new?”
If you had told me the president begged for forgiveness of the french for America’s arrogance?
Sac Le Bleu!
And that Sarkozy would stab Obama in the back? That part I’d believe….
You can’t make this stuff up. Leno should sue: Obama has all the good material….
They are kidding, right?
US President Barack Obama (L) and French President Nicolas Sarkozy meet during the NATO summit arrival ceremony at the the Palais Rohan in Strasbourg. Obama threw his backing behind Turkey’s bid to join the European Union before being slapped down by Sarkozy for intervening in the bloc’s affairs. Sarkozy also said Obama was “unoriginal, unsubstantial and overrated.”(AFP/Eric Feferberg)
