Another Biden Blunder

Let Joe Biden speak for more than 90 seconds and he will utter a foolish blunder. He is so well known for gaffes that when asked about him, the majority of people’s first response is laughter. That may be OK for a national clown, but it is embarrassing for a vice president.

Biden was true to form when recently asked about California governor Jerry Brown’s efforts at getting a high speed rail project up and running. Admitting that he was a “train guy”, Biden glowingly spoke of the high speed rail “making sense” by “going from California into Las Vegas” at a speed of “230-240 miles an hour”.

The problem is that this projected high speed rail does not go to Las Vegas (it is expected to run between San Francisco and San Diego) and the top speed, which most probably will never be reached, is only 220 miles an hour. Joe’s assertion, therefore, that it “makes sense” ends up highly doubtful, too.

Biden has lauded this project for quite some time so his confusion should not be treated lightly, especially since he is considered by some to be a viable presidential candidate for 2016. That idea should be as laughable as many of his gaffes, but it would be much too serious a mistake to laugh about.

Biden says whatever he wishes whenever he wishes, all delivered with a smug, cocky smile. He is little more than a cheerleader for Obama which is why many of the so-called journalists covering the White House love him. He is like them: a blind, unshakeable believer. He should join them to cover the next administration in the White House, but he certainly should not become part of that administration.

    My only hope for old Joe can oust Hillary from the primaries and then smooth sailing to get a decent president again, one that understands the importance of our constitution.

    Biden talks about “high speed rail” because it is considered to be “infrastructure-spending”. The words “infrastructure-spending” are code words for “union jobs and wages”. Only unions can bid on federal “infrastructure-spending”. That is discrimination.
