Biden Blunder or Good Advice

with 11 comments


White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs issued an apology for Vice President Joe Biden’s comments that he wouldn’t recommend taking a commercial flight or riding in a subway car because swine flu virus can spread in confined places.

Biden’s office later sought to clarify his remarks by saying he was only urging sick people to avoid planes and trains. Biden would have used those exact words in his initial statement, but Joe knows that sick people are reckless and will use public transportation anyway not caring about the strangers beside them.

“I would tell members of my family – and I have – I wouldn’t go anywhere in confined places now,” said Biden.

Biden’s remarks contradicted a more insidious cover-up from President Barack Obama and the federal government. The last thing the White House wants to do right now is shut down the airline industry, big-city subways or the border with Mexico out of mass panic. Doing so would remind the masses that the “One” really can’t heal the sick like he is portrayed on television.

The media seems forced to make Biden look a fool, mainly because he provides so much help, but mostly to protect Obama. Putting all that aside maybe Biden is not all that wrong? At this moment in time it sounds more reasonable than what others in the White House are proposing – hoping that indecision is the solution.

If it doesn’t work out, then too bad. Obama will assuage his guilt over the multitude of corpses with another apology that is sure to make everything right again.

UPDATE: One day after saying he wouldn’t travel in tight quarters because of the swine flu scare, Vice President Joe Biden rode a train Friday from Washington to Delaware.

How great would it be to hear the “threats” used to persuade Joe to take one for the team? Sadly, we can only speculate.

  1. It seems a dumb pig is big. Then how come a simple pig flu virus shakes the balance and sense of our so called ‘big’ heads.

  2. Biden gave the country the same advice he gave his family. Isn’t that what you want from the White House? Given what we presently know, I gave my family the same advice, avoid public crowds and I know numerous others who recommend the same.

    I guess too many don’t want to hear the truth, they only want him to say what they want to hear. Freaking pathetic.

  3. The Obama administration sure does seem to be apologizing a lot. If they aren’t careful people are going to get the impression they don’t know what they are doing.

    As we all know from past experience the first media reports are rarely correct. So until we know for sure how this flu is spread, I’m going with Joe.

  4. If you have spent hours on the runway waiting to take-off or deplane in a cylinder of creeping heat with no hope of imminent escape watching others sneeze, cough, belch or fart then Biden’s warning seems more than appropriate.

  5. Hi LC,

    Well didn’t you just come alive all at once?! Crap. (still playing that game)

    As to Biden and confined spaces, I want to know if that includes the padded room he should be locked up in?

    • Hi Grit

      Alive and ready to go! Finished my most recent paying gig so now I have more time to enjoy the finer things in life.

      Biden, what can I say? I never take anything he says seriously so when this came up I didn’t pay much attention. Then when the White House and the media started piling on I began to look a bit closer. If those two powerhouses of spin and deceit are going apoplectic over this then there must be something here.

      To make a long story short – there is.

  6. Hi LC,

    One of these years you’ll have to mention what it is you do, besides ruling over your castle.

    • The best I can tell, my lot in life is to make women swoon and make guys wish they were me. However, I’ve been thinking about expanding into something important like irritating socialist-Democrats full time, or along the same line pumping out septic tanks… what do you think… good move or not?

  7. Hi LC,

    My advice is to keep up the swooning part, and do the irritating bit as a hobby. Unless, of course, you find a way to make the latter pay more than the former, at which point you should re-think your decision.

    • Thanks for the advice Grit – Isn’t it funny how the solution to problems usually hinges around money.

  8. Obama likes to get everyone focused on a crisis with one hand while grabbing more and more power with the other. The measurement of how bad this flu is depends on the total number of deaths. It doesn’t take a genius to see that the death rate is greatly out of sync with hyped news reports.

    Sorry, but I don’t trust this president anymore. Now might be a good time to see what he is really doing.
