    I'm a democrat and I really like Joe Biden. But really, he needs to figure out when the mic is on!

    Every generation needs a Dan Quayle. Biden is the Quayle du Jour.

    Look we've all made mistakes and said stupid stuff when we thought no one was listening.

    But "the Quayle du Jour?" That's a little harsh.
    Maybe it's just my opinion, but putting Mr. Biden and his foolish little quip on par with Mr. Qualye who, in front of a formal media gathering, regularly and deliberately said stupid stuff that he believed to be intelligent is not exactly an apples-to-apples comparison, is it?

    Biden's a repeat offender. He's said stupid things a number of times. Dan Quayle said stupid things a number of times. I don't dislike Biden, but, really, the man is half in a coma.

    Like what?
    Really, I'm serious... I'm not trying to pick a fight or anything.
    I honestly can't recall any of Mr. Biden's "oops-did-i-say-that?" moments, though I don't doubt that they've happened.

    we all knew it was just a matter of time.....icon_lol.gif

    JB is a throw back to "a previous generation" of politicans who "shoot from the hip" and who sez what he thinks.

    while his "statements" may not be Politically Correct; at least the man has a thought inside his head, unlike SO many politicians in the current world..icon_rolleyes.gif

    I will compile a list and post it later. I seem to recall my jaw falling on the floor more than once listening to him, and not out of admiration.

    Like I said, I believe you... I just can't recall any of them.
    I'll probably be shocked when I see 'em. Even so, my point was that Quayle seemed to believe that he was being intelligent when he was clearly mistaken. Was that the case with Biden in this list you're going to compile, or was it an "oops-was-this-thing-on?" moment? That's the only criteria I ask you to place on those statements.

    Of course not. I like Biden. He's not from the dark side.

    See, I can see the Palin-Quayle thing much easier than with Biden. Too many times she just said the most outrageous things and I couldn't believe she was being permitted to make a fool of herself like that. That was the feeling I often got with Quayle.

    I am, however open to correction on this one, though. I look forward to your list, McGay.

    I would be hard pressed to determine if either Biden or Quayle actually believe that the things they say are things they think are intelligent or are ooops-did-i-say-that things. I know you don't believe it, but, I'm not really psychic.

    Well, Biden does have a track record of irresponsible comments. Just Google "Biden comments" and they're there for your perusal.

    My take is this: We all can be guilty of a gaff once in awhile. But Biden isn't just some little hick-town councilman, he's in a responsible position. He ought to have more sense. Biden was an unfortunate choice for his position, which is a sad reflection on the man who chose him.

    If Obama would or could just come through with half (even half!) of his campaign promises, I for one would not regret voting for him. I feel duped.

    Well, think about this article, for example. He retracted that statement (granted through it was one of his spokespeople) whereas it seemed to me that Quayle's people never did that. It's almost like they acted as if there was no point in covering up Quayle's messes because they were so outrageous... and funny to a certain extent.

    Does that straighten it out a bit, or is that not helping any?

    Here's the first 3 I found, I remember each of these.

    Biden tells wheelchair bound state senator Chuck Graham to stand up.

    While campaigning in Ohio, Biden cites "JOBS" as a three letter word.

    Biden cites FDR going on TV in 1929 to talk about the stock market crash. FDR wasn't president yet and TV was still experimental.

    Oh, I'm sure you're right. Even so (and this is honestly not meant to be an affront to McGay), I want to see what McGay picks out that makes him feel that Biden is the "Quayle du Jour."

    That, and the fact that I'm just too lazy to do it on my own.
    Oops! Did I say that? icon_lol.gif

    See, now that's a promising start... and I can't believe I forgot about the Chuck Graham mistake! That was pretty embarrassing! icon_lol.gif
