In Philadelphia on Tuesday, standing with Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey and other officers at Houston Hall at the University of Pennsylvania, the vice president said that one argument he’s “heard from my friends who oppose” the jobs bill is that “this is just temporary.”
“Well let me tell you, it’s not temporary when that 911 call comes in and a woman’s being raped if a cop shows up in time to prevent the rape,” he continued. “It’s not temporary to that woman.
“It’s not temporary to the guy whose store is being held up and a gun is being pointed to his head,” he continued, “if a cop shows up and he’s not killed, that’s not temporary to that store owner.
“Give me a break, ‘temporary’!” the Veep said. “I wish these guys that thought it’s temporary, I wish they had some notion what it’s like to be on the other side of a gun. Or a 200 pound man standing over you telling you to submit. Folks, it matters. It matters!”
You better pass this worthless, costly “jobs” bill or some 200 lb gorilla will invade your home. A union thug, probably. And remember the cops are ‘only minutes away’!
BTW, did you know that George W. Bush and Wall Street are responsible for burning houses?
Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday that “people died” and “people’s homes burned to the ground,” because the Bush administration allowed “God-awful Ponzi schemes” on Wall Street.
Speaking at a rally to promote a piecemeal provision of President Obama’s jobs proposal, Biden told police and firefighters that the budget shortfalls of state and local governments were not attributable to state and local governments.
……Biden continued: “Housing–the bottom fell out, foreclosures increased, particularly in poor neighborhoods, abandoned homes were created, drug lords moved in, arson increased, budgets fall because the property taxes fall, cops and firefighters are laid off, response times increase from 5 minutes to 30 minutes and people died and people’s homes burned to the ground.”
We know who owns this economy, Biden. It isn’t George Bush, even though you blame him for everything from your erectile dysfunction to AIDs. Your SCOAMF boss forced TARP on banks and spent billions in taxpayer-funded bailouts and “stimulus”.
Speaking of Ponzi schemes, when Biden was in the Senate, he along with Christopher Dodd, Barney Frank, and a Dem-controlled Congress dictated that mortgage lenders give loans to unqualified borrowers. The Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac scam caused the housing market to crash. Houses that had been foreclosed and abandoned ended up being vandalized and condemned. They had to be demolished. Any “burning” involved was done by arsonists.
That’s what caused the “burning houses”, jackass.
Biden’s explanation for his insane behavior: Know why? Shut up, that’s why!
It will be a pleasure to see this assclown and his equally stupid SCOAMF-in-Chief unassed from the White House in 2012. It cannot happen soon enough.
