Douchebag of the Week: Joe Biden.

Douchebag of the Week!Delaware Senator Joe Biden isn’t your average douchebag, he’s way above average.  Elected to the Senate at age 29 (though not able to be legally sworn in until his 30th birthday), Biden had the audacity to tell a recent Supreme Court nominee that he didn’t think the man had “enough real world experience” for the job without any sense of irony about the fact that he has no real world experience himself since he’s been in the Senate since graduating law school.  But that is not why he is Douchebag of the Week, clearly.

Biden wins for his asinine comments about President Bush’s comments to the Israeli Knesset, when President Bush said:

Speaking before the Knesset, Bush said that “some people” believe the United States “should negotiate with terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along.”

“We have heard this foolish delusion before,” Bush said. “As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: ‘Lord, if I could only have talked to Hitler, all this might have been avoided.’ We have an obligation to call this what it is – the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history.”

Everyone assumed Bush was talking about Obama and his willingness to speak with any dictator at any time, especially if they were funding attacks on our troops.  But why stop there?  Nancy Pelosiwent to Syria and treated the despots there like they were Canada.  There are so many liberals who’ve met with terrorists and dictators that the picture of Rumsfeld and Saddam will be laughed at in the future. 

But back to our Douchebag.  Here is what Biden had to say about the President’s remarks:

“He is the guy who has weakened us,” he said. “He has increased the number of terrorists in the world. It is his policies that have produced this vulnerability that the U.S. has. It’s his [own] intelligence community [that] has pointed this out, not me.”

So in Joe Biden’s world, if we had just taken the punch on 9/11 eventually there would be less terrorists in the world, though he leaves out any reason for that (they continue to commit suicide killing Americans?), and everything would be great!  He also called the President’s remarks “Bullshit.”  Bullshit pretty much explains Joe Biden’s political career. 

It seems now that Barack Obama has weighed in on the comments, claiming the President and John McCain are “fear mongering.”  Biden has said similar things.  Hmm, if pointing out that talking to terrorists and despotsis a bad idea unless and until they renounce their terrorist ways is fear mongering, what do you call it when every liberal follows up the charge of fear mongering with lines like “And thanks to George Bush we’re less safe than we were before 9/11”? 

Could just be us, but that line doesn’t seem meant to inspire tranquility.

Joe Biden, while we’re only mostly sure what you said were your own words, there is no doubt that you are the bullshit artist here.  And you are also our Douchebag of the week.  Congratulations!  Now go get ready for yet another failed Presidential run.

    This comment has nothing to do with Biden. But Obama’s arrogance in thinking that the comment was directly aimed at him struck me as childish. All I could hear is “he’s picking on me”. It seemed like Obama’s way of just getting some attention out of the story.

    While this post is a little more impressive than the beatdown Tweety gave Kevin James, however it is the same old arrogant rhetoric the right spews out.First the majority of the country felt going into Afghanistan was the correct thing to do, because that is where the enemy was. Going into Iraq was a lie, bald faced lie! Al Qaeda was not in Iraq until the Bush Crime Family invaded. Numerous politicians have talked with our enemies, from Roosevelt, to Kennedy, to Nixon, to Reagan, to Bush, to Clinton. Joe Biden’s comments were correct, I am just sorry he did not bring up Prescott Bush when describing “appeasement”. The continued policies of the Republican party is not working, so in turn, numbers of Democrats are attempting “diplomacy”, look it up. And to treat Obama like a whining little boy is childish to say the least. A Democratic Presidential candidate that refuses to be swift-boated? You must be appalled.Meeting with Iran and Syria is crucial in preventing the murder machine in the Middle East from getting bigger. If arrogant fearmongering Republicans who just want more death and destruction refuse to take the helm, then god damn, a Democrat must. Your choice for “Douchebag” of the week was a strech this time, or as Joe would say “bullshit!”
