Top 10 Joe Bidenisms

Vice President Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. is a veritable gaffe machine who never ceases to amaze.  It wasn’t easy narrowing down his verbal miscues to only 10, but here they are: the all-time Top 10 Joe Bidenisms.

1.  Republicans want more rapes:  While trying to sell President Obama’s jobs bill, Biden hurled a vicious attack on Republicans blocking the bill, saying that if the bill didn’t pass, murders and rapes would increase:  “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.  It’s not temporary to that woman.  … I wish they [Republicans] had some notion of what it was like to be on the other side of a gun, or a 200-pound man standing over you, telling you to submit.”

2.  FDR on TV in 1929:  Rarely has a politician gotten as many historical facts wrong in one sentence as Biden did with this comment in a 2008 interview with Katie Couric:  “When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed.  He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened.’ ”  Of course FDR wasn’t President when the stock market crashed and televisions were not in use at the time.

3.  Recovery Summer:  Rarely has a politician made a worse prediction than Biden’s June 2010 promise of a Recovery Summer in the U.S. economy.  While touting the President’s stimulus legislation, Biden said, “Folks, the act is working, more people are going to be put to work this summer.  … The proof of the pudding is in the eating.”  Nearly a year and a half later, America is still waiting for all of those jobs.

4.  Obama “articulate” and “clean”:  During the 2008 presidential election, Biden seemingly discovered that blacks can have sound hygiene.  Imagine the howls of racism if a conservative had uttered this statement:  “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.  I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”

5.  Barbarians at the gate:  Even though the President called for increased civility in the public discourse, his vice president couldn’t resist attacking the political opposition.  At an AFL-CIO rally on Labor Day in Cincinnati, Biden told the union members:  “You are the only folks keeping the barbarians from the gates.”

6.  Three-letter word:  Former Vice President Dan Quayle was laughed out of town for misspelling “potato,” yet Biden took little heat for his inability to count past three.  Back in 2008 on the campaign trail, Biden said:  “Look, John [McCain’s] last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the No. 1 job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word:  jobs.  J-O-B-S, jobs.”

7.  Katie’s Restaurant:  During his 2008 debate with Sarah Palin, Biden trotted out his working-man sensibilities with this comment:  “Look, all you have to do is go down Union Street with me in Wilmington, or go to Katie’s Restaurant or walk into Home Depot with me, where I spend a lot of time, and you ask anybody in there whether or not the economic and foreign policy of this administration has made them better off.”  Oops! Looks like Joseph Robinette hadn’t mingled with his working-class cohorts for a while.  Katie’s Restaurant had closed down years earlier.

8.  Indian accent:  Biden perpetuated an ethnic stereotype with remarks in 2006 that indicated only Indian-Americans run convenience stores and doughnut shops.  “You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.  … I’m not joking,” Biden said.  Imagine the media outcry if a Republican had said the same thing (witness how former Virginia Gov. George Allen was pilloried for a calling an Indian-American, “macaca”—a non-slur.)

9.  Big [effing] deal:  During the ObamaCare signing ceremony, Biden resorted to a vulgarism in the East Room of the White House when he whispered into the ear of President Obama:  “This is a big [expletive deleted] deal”—a remark picked up by the microphone for all to hear.

10.  Don’t screw around with me:  Biden sounded more like a Mafia thug than the second-ranking government official when HUMAN EVENTS editor Jason Mattera pressed him on his rape comments (see No. 1).  “I didn’t use, no no no.  … Let’s get it straight, guy.  Don’t screw around with me,” said Biden, who went on confirm his original remarks, saying, “Murder will continue to rise, rape will continue to rise, all crimes will continue to rise,” if the jobs bill isn’t passed.

    Until we get freedom “from” the press, Joe Bite Me will continue to get away with these gaffs, as will his master, Oblowhard!

    Are you sure Neil Kinnock didn’t say some of these things first? Our  motormouth veep ain’t always original either.

    If the Dems are counting on Biden to bail out Obama, then God help them.  And as we learned this week, God just may not be a Democrat …

    The ONLY person dumber than Joe Biden is, well, there IS no one dumber than Joe Biden.

    The closer to the election – the more Joe will become unhinged (call it panic).  He feels he has impunity with every word he speaks and so he will say anything and everything to further the liberal cause.  It will include: 1) backing Obama’s occupy protestors  2) backing unions (thug in chief Trumka)  3) more stimulus cash to the unions  4) more stimulus tossed at ‘green’ energy failures  5) more support and cash given to the eugenics provider (planned parenthood)  6) more support of Nancy and Harry  7) more support of Freddie and Fanny  8) more support of the policy maker: George Soros and Bill Ayers  9) more support of every Obama policy and decision.                    Had enough yet?

    “They” picked Biden on purpose.  They knew what would happen with obama.  If obama is gone..we get Biden? 

  • sunkgleska

    Joe Biden….a way below average JOE…..nothing more nothing less…YUP

  • ghostshirt

    If Republicans wanted more rapes, I guess we would encourage ‘Occupy Wall Street’ activities.

    The more telling thing on Uncle Joe isn’t that he thinks FDR was on TV in 1929. When Joe has time to carefully consider his position, he’s even dumber. This is the guy who was once advocating partitioning Iraq into three nations.

  • ArthurRice

    Biden was selected to make Obama look more intelligent. I am reminded of the SNL skits of Chevy Chase as the secret service around him bumbled and fell down.

  • TampaMike50

    One thing I think deserves more attention is the idiot media elite types who don’t call him on this stuff.  To wit, Katie Couric who I believe was interviewing Uncle Joe 1-on-1 at the time of the FDR gaffe.  Are we to believe that she is THAT stupid too?  Or is it just that liberal all LOVE good old Uncle Joe and he can say and do as he pleases without media accountability??  I believe the latter; but I’m not totally sure it’s not part of the former either.  Either way JOE is a JACKASS and needs to be thrown out with last week’s garbage…

  • Lady_Lone_Star

    Of course we’ve had enough! Hurry up 2012!!!!!

  • Lady_Lone_Star

    Seriously though……they are embarrassing America. The world is laughing at us, they no longer respect us. They look at those in Washington DC as average Americans, that couldn’t be more wrong than if Biden had said it. 
    I know we don’t care what the rest of the world thinks of us……but please!

    We need to vote with our brains, do our background checks on the candidates BEFORE we vote just cuz they look “presidential” or we get a chill up our leg!

  • Holly

    Biden is really getting aggressive in his efforts to pass the jobs bill. According to the Daily Rash, the Vice President recently told a group of junior high school students that they could end up beaten and sodomized like Gaddafi if republicans didn’t pass Obama’s jobs bill.

  • Stratosaurus

    JoJo the Idjut Chile lives up to the moniker on a regular basis.  He can’t help it.  He has MAYBE 17 functional neurons inside that thick skull of his, and I think that his Hair Club doctor installed his plugs too deep, which didn’t help matters one bit.

    Bidet’s a bully, plain and simple, and thinks his position as resident of the Naval Observatory relieves him from abiding by the accepted rules of public behavior.  I think there’ll be a “surprise retirement” from JoJo in July, to be effective at the end of his current term.  That would leave the demoncraps in the position of selecting a sane person to run as odildo’s VP in November.  Don’t count on seeing Hitlery volunteering for that position, either.  She’s clever enough to see that letting herself being associated with odildimus maxipad would doom her in the eyes of all but the most delusional libloons.

    On the other hand, with DWS as national chairperson, one cannot expect sanity from the socialists.  Not that sanity has ever been their long suit.  Look for the party of the rabid wombat to re-nominate Clueless Leader, possibly with a different candidate for VP, and watch how many voters rise from the dead in the large urban areas.

    Don’t forget “Stand up Chuck!” where our great veep showed respect to his constituents.

  • sikupnfed

    Fake news. That is a joke website. People could get the wrong impression unless someone says something. Really. As much as I dislike this administration, there are those who won’t read between the lines, check the disclaimers, and know it was a joke. I expect to get a viral email any minute from WND with that link at the bottom.

  • Guest

    And he didn’t plagarize either.

  • confedgal

    Yeah, right now that might be an improvement.

  • confedgal

    I really think she is that stupid.

  • confedgal

    It is not possible that JoJo has 17 neurons. He only has one brain cell. I think he shares it with somebody.

  • rebelyell4

    I am under an impression that there are actually voters who listen to him. If there were no voters who believe him; how would he get elected to the senate?

    So we think he’s silly, stupid or a joke and he has a real voter base? Doesn’t that bother anybody?

    Most candidates treat voters as if they have about a 5th or 6th grade education. Where does Biden aim? Think about it seriously? When he said there would be more murders and rapes, they believed him. MILLIONS of voters believed him. It doesn’t hit me in the funny bone somehow?

    This dude is a serious government official who point up how “stupid” his constituency is. Those folks are Americans who believe the lies, right? How could anyone vote for him over and over and believe this trash? He’s been that way for as long as I can remember. These are American voters. Why would the world NOT believe we’re nuts, stupid, dense, and just plain ignorant?

  • David McDermott

    Here’s how I see it. I think it’s about the same as Bush forty-one picking Dan Quayle, and here’s why. It’s life insurance pure, and simple. No but someone with a seething hatred for this country would kill the President with the knowledge that that moron would take the reins. I think pointing this out in this forum is safe, as I doubt terrorists read much of what is shared here.

  • TeaPartyNation

    The pathetic, useless life of career political hack “Bite-Me” biden has amounted to nothing more than an inflamed pimple on the butt of America. The mental handicap of “Bite-Me” (which is fully qualified for treatment under obozocare) is a result of his multiple brain aneurysms which have made him incapable of operating heavy machinery (like a car or a screwdriver) — or preforming most normal tasks, like flying on an airplane or keeping his foot out of his mouth.  When overseas, his insane behavior is degrading  America’s stature in the world (you can almost hear foreign dignitaries mumbling “THAT’s what America has as a Vice President!). In Nov 2012 Americans will be throwing out “YOU LIE!” hussein and his failed socialist extremist policies and then “Bite-Me” will be gone forever.

  • The_Plan

    Dumb-ass Joe.  A super-star of the Democrat Party.  Is it any wonder that our country has slid into the gutter?

  • Niniane

    If HE would produce a book of all the Bidenisms, it would probably be larger and heavier than the 7,000 page Oxford Dictionary of the English Language. Bring dolly to bookstore and ask for an employee to help you pick it up. And just think there are only 364 days to election so there will be additional Bidenisms coming. Too much fun.

  • Keith1941

    I agree….

  • Dustoff

    Dan Quayle a moron?So it’s not hard to see you’ve never studied up on Dan have you.  Typical lib… insult first facts later.  

  • Stratosaurus

    I was trying to give him the benefit of the doubt, but you could very well be right.  He DOES lend a whole new dimension to the phrase, “Totally fvckin’ clueless”, doesn’t he?

  • Dave

    Obama making Biden his VP choice immediately rerminded me of The Cosby Show.  Any white person that came onto that show was always a complete, blithering idiot.   I suspect Obama was thinking the same thing when he talked to Crazy Joe Biden about being the VP.  I guess Obama figured he couldn’t hurt anything as long as he was VP.  Obama discovered,  as Bill Cosby found out,  the useful white idiot doesn’t always work out the way you planned.

  • justsaynotosocialism

    Will Biden be eligible for free mental health care under Obamacare?  Maybe that’s why he said that it would be a “big f’n deal…”

    I have a dream!

    This nightmare ends, when we have full control of both houses of congress.  First order of business?  Retroactively impeach and remove all these clowns, then make them repay all their salaries, and that would be just for starters.

  • Victor Cyr Pelletier Jr

    Yes, Biden is clueless, but you will never hear it from MSM.  Now a days, I get most of my news from FOX , and a little bit from MSM, at a 6 to 1 ratio of FOX/MSM.  This makes me a lot happier that when I got my news from MSM exclusively.

    Biden, the Bumbling Booby

      At the risk of insulting those tropical sea birds of the gannet family, America’s Vice President Joseph Robinette  Biden is a booby of the first order, a master of the gaffe and exemplar of the inane second only to his boss, President Barack Hussein Obama. 
    Biden’s staff may be even boobier. 
    After Obama ripped into Americans as “lazy,” he took off on one of his frequent jaunts ending up Down Under where he told Australian students that American school kids had “fallen behind,” an inappropriate though true admission no president should concede to foreigners. 
    That knock on his own country followed his amazing gaffe while standing on U.S. soil in the reputed land of his birth, Hawaii, and thought he was in Asia and preceded a Bush-like episode in Bali when he couldn’t open a door to a conference room.      
    Don’t expect to hear much about those stories on Obama’s MSM anymore than you heard much about the 57 states he said he campaigned in, his reference to Navy “corpsemen” when he meant “corps men” or the fact he pays $30,000 each for his kids to attend private school in lieu of the American public schools he badmouthed.  
    Still, the man a heartbeat away from the presidency, with an able assist from the VP’s staff, gives Obama a run for his money when it comes to screwing things up. 
    Take that “transparency” the administration had touted as a hallmark and which has become one of its biggest jokes on the American people. 
    When ridicules Biden’s ”closed-door transparency chat” on Thursday, what it termed the “irony in Vice President Biden’s schedule,” it’s pretty clear more than irony was involved.  Stupidity might be a better word.  
    Politico’s Matt Negrin also called it an instance “Biden hidin’” when he quoted the announcement that “At 1:00 PM, the Vice President will attend a meeting of the Government Accountability and Transparency Board in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.  At 2:30 PM, the Vice President will meet with representatives of the National Sheriffs’ Association in the Roosevelt Room.  These meetings are closed press.” 
    Accountability.  Transparency.  Closed.  One of those words is not like the others, one of those words is not the same.  
    For the edification of Biden and the rest of this opaque administration, the applicable definition of “transparent” is the absence of pretense or deceit, readily understood, and accessible.  
    Negrin parenthetically observed that only a few months ago, “State Department officials briefed reporters on transparency efforts but refused to have their names be printed; and in March, the White House postponed a pooled-press ceremony for President Obama to get an openness award–it was later rescheduled and carried out in an undisclosed meeting.” (
    Were Biden’s closed-door transparency meeting the lone example of obtuseness, it could be overlooked.  However, hidden behind that door are a slew of what labels the “Top 10 Joe Bidenisms.” 
    Keeping in mind these are just the Top 10 and not all-inclusive, they range from the bizarre (claiming Republicans “want more rapes”) to the astoundingly nitwitted (contending FDR “got on the television” after the 1929 stock market crash) to his math deficiencies (“as Barack says, a three-letter word:  jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs”) to his memorable obscenities (“This is a big f*cking deal) and other Bidenisms.   
    That’s our Joe!  Weird, dumb, and foul.  He may not have surpassed Obama as a a gaffe machine but he sure is trying! 
      Postscript: On a lighter note, Jill Biden, the vice president’s long suffering bride, has extended an invitation to join in her hubby’s birthday celebration this Sunday.  Anyone wishing to send salutations and comments to the bumbling booby may do so at  Just try not to be weird, dumb, or foul!

     Blow Hard is gone.  They canceled Joy’s program.  And I totally agree with the statement above.  I’ve been saying it myself that the ONLY reason Biden got picked was to be a human shield.  I was concerned tho that Nazi Pelosi was only 2 heartbeats away from the job!

  • another_engineer

    anyone remember the fact that when Obumbler was initially running and picked Joey “plugs” for VP, Biden refused to hand over his MRI head scans.  I think the moron had a bunch of strokes he didn’t want anyone to know about.
