The Vice President of the United States is a Moron
It’s pretty darned hilarious how members of the Democratic Party lampooned the last Republican candidate for Vice President of the United States, Sarah Palin, for being a buffoon then turned around and elected to that office a person who gives new meaning to the word moron.
At a recent meeting with Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, the current U.S. Veep Joe Biden was asked by the Russian psychopath whether it wouldn’t be a good idea to let Russians waltz into the United States without visas. First Biden said “good idea!” then he said “Mr. Prime Minister, in case you haven’t noticed, there’s a real difference between being president and vice president.”
Only Joe Biden could cram so much utter stupidity into such a small space. He makes Sarah Palin look like Winston Churchill.
It’s actually hard to list all the ways Biden’s foolish utterance is wrong.
First, Biden simply accepted Putin’s offer without making a counter-proposal. He could have said something like “sure, we could do that — but first we’d need to both have competitive presidential elections and release all our political prisoners.” Instead, his first answer was “OK Putin, whatever you say.”
Second, Biden didn’t think for a second about whether it would be good for the USA to see a flood tide of visaless Russian interlopers, or whether a significant number of Americans would want to return the favor and waltz into Russia. Had he done so, the clueless ape would have realized how utterly ridiculous his statement was.
Third, Biden called Putin “Mr. Prime Minister.” One must wonder what plant Joe Biden lives on. Does he really think Vladimir Putin is worthy of the term prime minister? Can the Vice President of the United States really be so unaware of the outrageous sham Putin has perpetrated in Russian politics, ruling the country himself while using a trained seal to bark commands on his behalf?
And then finally, Biden humiliated himself by backpedaling furiously, confirming for all the world to see that even he himself knew how stupid his initial remark had been. Biden allowed himself to be played for the fool he is in front of the gawking cameras of world media by one of the world’s most odious enemies of American values.
Biden then went on to mouth some utterly vacuous platitudes about the appalling state of human rights in Russia without offering one single concrete policy of the United States to bolster such rights. He mentioned Sergei Magnitsky and Mikhail Khodorkovsky by name, yet he didn’t even vaguely hint at any actin the U.S. might take to win them justice, or to prevent other Russians from meeting the same fate. In light of his hilariously stupid statement above visas, no intelligent person was taking him seriously at this point anyway.
So much for the notion that Barack Obama’s government would be much smarter than John McCain’s. Had McCain been elected, his first visit to Russia (and that of Sarah Palin) would have been far different. The corrupt Putin kleptocracy would have been directly challenged. Open, high-level meetings with opposition leaders like Boris Nemtsov would have occurred, and tangible American support for the proponents of American values would long ago have been flowing in to every corner of Russia, which would have been booted out of the G-8 as McCain’s first official act of foreign policy.
Instead, we got the Obama “reset” and the chimp-like antics of Joe Biden. Anyone who calls that progress needs to have her head examined.
