    You may think that R. Limbaugh or S.Hannity would have said this but....
    PoliGazette » VP Joe Biden: Stimulus Money Being Wasted
    Vice President Joe Biden, blowhard, once again said a little bit too much this week when meeting with businessmen. Quite some of the stimulus money, Biden said, “is being wasted.” That is true, of course, and that is partially why conservatives and many true moderates opposed the many bailouts, stimulus plans, etc. When government is involved, money disappears down the drain. That is how it has always been, and that is how it will always be.

    “We know some of this money is going to be wasted,” Biden said during a roundtable discussion in New York with business leaders aimed at promoting the two-year stimulus plan…

    If you thought that is bad, well, guess what: there’s more!

    “There are going to be mistakes made,” said Biden. “Some people are being scammed already.”

    “Our credibility depends on transparency” for how taxpayers dollars are used, he added.

    You have got to love this man. He doesn’t know when to shut up. He just continues talking, and talking… and talking. How could Obama ever have chosen Biden as his running mate? What do you think, does he regret not picking Hillary Clinton by now? I’d say so.



    This guy is a walking talking gaffe machine.....or could it be freudian slips?:cuckoo:

    Mr Obama needed to pick somebody that was so stupid that nobody would dare assassinate him in fear of what the result would be. He chose wisely.

    I believe that is exactly right. Biden filled the "experience" role in the Obama campaign and little else. The man likes to talk and he makes an ass of himself, and the administration, most of the time. Lefties complained about Cheney but he rarely left his ass hanging out like Biden does.

    I think you're wrong...BO didn't pick his running mate. The DNC and all it's agenda driven donators made the pick.

    Oooo...did someone say assassinate?

    He really is good for my government induced ulcer. At least there's Biden to make us laugh. Those dems must be so proud.

    That's why I don't think Hillary could be picked for VP. She's power hungry and too many people near the Clintons turn up dead.

    Since when it is a bad quality to recognize a problem, and seek to address it? Would you rather Biden and Obama just pretend there were no problems with Stimulus funds and ignore them hoping they might go away, Bush style?

    You tools are so fucking desperate to criticize him for anything and everything.

Kettle? btw I recall obamalama promising that if any stimulus money were wasted and not spent wisely he "would call those people out" now we are supposed to accept as a matter of course that "some" money will be wasted.. and you want to call other people tools?? :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:you sound like the desperate one..

    The premise is rediculous.

    The ENTIRE 'stimulous' was a waste.

    How could bits of waste be deemed to be further wasted?
