Joe Biden: Beltway Bubble Boy

Written on Thursday, October 27, 2011 by


Last fall, before the midterm shellacking, Vice President Joe Biden admonished rank-and-file Democratic voters to “stop whining.” Uncle Tough Guy should practice what he screeches. The 2012 campaign has barely begun, but Biden’s thin skin makes a spring roll wrapper look impenetrable.

Biden’s office is now calling for an official investigation of a young editor who dared to question His Highness. Jason Mattera of the conservative-leaning Human Events magazine confronted the veep last week on his hysterical claims that rape and murder would increase if Congress didn’t ram through the half-trillion-dollar White House jobs bill. The testy exchange between the audacious journalist and the temper-challenged Beltway pol took place in a Senate hallway:

Mattera: Do you regret using a rape reference to describe Republican opposition to the president’s bill?

Biden: I didn’t use it. No, no, no, what I said, let’s get it straight, guys. Don’t screw around with me. Let’s get it straight. Listen to me. I said rape was up, three times, in Flint (Michigan). They’re the numbers, go look at the numbers. Murder’s up, rape is up, burglary’s up, that’s exactly what I said.

Mattera: And if Republicans don’t pass this bill, then rape will continue to rise?

Biden: Murder will continue to rise, rape will continue to rise, all crimes will continue to rise.

Never mind that the statistics in Flint actually show no correlation between crime rates and the number of police officers in the city. It’s never about the facts. It’s about the shameless demonization of Biden’s and Obama’s political opponents — and those in the press who would dare question their doom-and-gloom narratives.

After jabbing his finger in Mattera’s face, Biden stalked off, and one of his rattled press aide protectors yelped: “Who are you with?” Like playground tattletales who just got smacked in the face after cheating at tetherball, Team Biden then reported Mattera’s transgressions to the Senate press gallery and the standing committee of correspondents. The Hill newspaper reported on Tuesday that “the matter is under review.”

Biden’s crude response to Mattera’s challenge — “Don’t screw around with me” — is par for the Beltway Bubble Boy’s course. This entitled blowhard has long sought to bully reporters and ordinary citizens who question Bidenrhhea of the mouth.

In October 2008, WFTV Channel 9 anchor Barbara West put Biden on the hot seat over ACORN, voter fraud and Obama’s infamous “spread the wealth” comments. Biden falsely denied any relationship between ACORN and Obama, an ACORN affiliate Project Vote community organizer whose 2008 campaign doled out more than $800,000 to another ACORN satellite group. West was calm and professional. After sputtering, “C’mon, let’s get real” to West and asking whether her questions were a “joke,” Biden’s handlers lambasted the questions as “combative and woefully uninformed about simple facts.”

Anything less than total sycophancy from the Obamedia is considered “combative,” you see. Biden then cracked the brass knuckles and punished the Florida television station by canceling a previously scheduled interview with his wife.

The perpetually vexed veep seems to have a hang-up with Florida journalists. In March, Biden’s staff locked Orlando Sentinel reporter Scott Powers in a closet for hours to prevent him from talking with wealthy donors at a $500-per-person fundraiser where Biden spoke. He told the Drudge Report: “When I’d stick my head out, they’d say, ‘Not yet. We’ll let you know when you can come out.'” One of the attendees later told the Sentinel: “If I had known there was a reporter stuffed in the closet, I would have been compelled to stand up and demand answers. I would also like to know if this is actually legal to treat people like caged animals. I’m disgusted by these actions.”

And yet, Biden keeps getting a golden pass for his half-oaf, half-ogre shtick.

Last year, when a Milwaukee, Wis., custard shop owner told Biden that Washington should lower his taxes, Biden snapped that he was a “smartass.” Biden’s apologists played it off as a joke. But he set the imperial tone with voters two decades ago during his failed presidential run, when a New Hampshire citizen named Frank asked him about his lousy academic record. “I think I probably have a much higher IQ than you do, I suspect,” Biden hissed before falsely claiming he graduated in the top half of his law school class.

As political blogger Doug Powers joked: “If they start banning any reporter with the potential to make Joe Biden look silly, the press gallery is going to be as sparsely populated as Capitol Hill’s next ‘I quit earmarks, ask me how’ seminar.” On a sober note, Team Biden’s media litmus test is appalling. If the Senate caves and bars Mattera, no one is safe from Uncle Joe’s goonish etiquette police.

      Don’t we still have Biden for president in 2016 to look forwards for lots of amusement.It’s hard to say President Biden with a straight face.Some times I wonder if Obama chose Biden for the same reason Clinton picked Gore as VP. As insurance against assassination attempts?

  • warren reynolds

    This guy is a such a bad joke, can’t wait for the 2012 shellacking of the dems. LMAO this is going to be great, also really looking forward to seeing obama debate ANYONE without a teleprompter he comes off as the most stupid person alive, he can barely string together 2 sentences with going into an, “uhm, uhh, duhhhh,,, SHUT UP!!

  • ray

      Joe Biden makes Dan Quale look brilliant…….and I know that Mr. Quale is WAY more intellignet than his gaffs…..

    • JMJ

      The only reason why the not so big “o” picked bird-brain Biden, was because he is a suppose to American catholic which was to get the American catholics to vote for him; note that I said American & NOT Roman Catholic. +JMJ+

  • Fritz

    Investigate Biden and Obama for failing to “uphold and defend” the Constitution – NOT the few reporters (e.g.Mattera) that call them on the propaganda and lies which the democrats disseminate.
    -Deciding NOT to enforce laws to gain votes.
    -Encouraging class warfare and not upholding the civil rights of certain groups to gain votes.
    Both Obama and Biden should be impeached!

    • Tom from Michigan

      Impeachement? WHEN? It can not be to soon for the US of A !

      YA! Wash’g Do not have the BALL s for it !

  • http://verizon Ann Rand

    Such a liar and a nitwit. He fits right in with the administration.

    • http://x Washington22

      Hey, Ann……..I was looking for a “familiar poster”………………Where are all the “regulars”? Joe Biden is an embarrassment to this nation. I shudder everytime he opens his mouth……

    • http://verizon Ann Rand

      Wash22… Alot of our regulars have dropped out, I think. They are tired of being moderated. I sure wish they wouldn’t do that(moderate) for it is discouraging

    • http://x Washington22

      O’ come on, Ann…….they’re tougher than that, aren’t they? Some days are BAD, others aren’t. Today I’ve only been moderated twice out of 10 times or so. We need to keep trying, sharing, researching and studying. I hope they show up, I miss them.


    Hwill probably get a job on NBC as a commentator, maybe he will get obamas teleprompter

    • AliveStillKickin

      He is Dean Martin’s Jerry Lewis.
      He takes all the laughs and distracts us while Obama is seriously doing serious demolition behind the scenes.

      At least Jerry is funny, funny. Biden is so lost & there isn’t anything funny about him. +JMJ+

    I was hoping to See me ole bud, LRRP making his comment about Joe, Bite- Me, Dont screw around with me, Terrorist, Murderers and rapes will go up, Biden,…Friends there isn`t too many people that can properly define this man, Joe, Bite-Me, Don`t screw around with me, terrorists Murderers and rapest Will go up, Biden, as LRRP can do….I look forward to his Rare Pearls of Wisdom…He also hails under the name Pure American Patroit….

  • Larry

    Joe Biden is someone that believes he is something special and he feels he is better than the common people. He rents a bedroom to his protection detail and the tax payers have to pick up the bill for it. I would be willing to bet he hires many illegals to clean his house and do his lawn care and does not pay them much of anything. Biden is a senile Old man that needs to be put out to pasture he no longer has what it takes to serve the people of this country and the proof is his rambling about woman getting raped because of the Republicans so this statement by itself proves he is incapable of a rational thought.

    • AliveStillKickin

      There is a bus coming with his name on it…..COUNT ON IT!!!

    • http://x Washington22

      OK, Alive, you just made me laugh outloud!

    • JMJ

      That house that we are paying for, he used to RENT to his mother, which shows just what kind of disgusting person that this jerk really is; & he might be “thinking” of running for president in 2016ad! Say it ain’t so, Joe (big foot in the mouth). +JMJ+

  • T Lady

    Both Biden and his boss are extremely thin-skinned. Look at what happened not only to Mattera , whose book “Obamzombies” reveals the cult-like following of the 44th President, but to the Koke brothers, Joe the Plumber, and countless others who have dared to speak out ag’a’inst “the most transparent and ethical Administration in Washington.”

    Say what you will about George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, at least they both had the grace and dignity to not take punitive measures against their critics during their tenure.

    • JMJ

      Biden had a Bishop that had the nerve to tell him not to receive Communion in his diocese. Well, Biden complained and the Bishop became very sick, had to “retire” & “died” shortly after; so my question is: How is the health of this wonderful reporter & does he still have a job? +JMJ+

  • Adrian Vance

    Biden is the perfect VP for Mr. Obama. He will say anything and make Obama look good as well as serve as life insurance as no one would ever want him to be President.

    The Two Minute Conservative at has political analysis, science and humor. Now in the top 3% on Kindle.

  • John C. Stewart

    Supposedly Biden’s strong suit is foreign policy. Why don’t we, when the troops come home, leave this idiot over there to moderate the ensuing melee. It would certainly keep him from running his mouth over here.

  • sanysue

    the only reason obama is pushing this new “job bill” is because of the 2012 election and his low ratings.. we dont need another billion dollar bail out.. we dont have it.. obama has done just what he wants to since the dems put him in office and nothing to help our country or our people.. his thing is the us budget, his to blow on his junk projects..he wants to put this country in so much more debt before we throw him will take us years now to repair the damage he’s done.. he should have been impeached 3 yrs ago and thrown out and biden with him.. biden is as big a liar as obama. we still have free speech biden you and obama havnt been able to take that away yet..

    • Tom from Michigan

      Oh, YA? well just try and make your phone call at 2:00 PM on the Nov.2 !

      When he is turning “all data” off for 2 Min.s

      We will see how people like this “Ass Hole”!

    • JMJ

      They are working very hard to take our FREE SPEECH away, unless of course, we are talking nothing but trash, such as “what great leaders they are, etc. (sorry I’m not good at writing make-believe) and I can’t find my teleprompter. +JMJ+

  • traitors in gov

    Biden is a tool.. Biden is only there because the ILLEGAL ALIEN in the white house needed some assassination insurance, and he got it…

    Biden should go base jump off a bridge with Obama’s parachute…

    What an idiot!

  • http://ThePatriotUpdate Morris

    Lets encourage the administration and the liberal media to keep the Veep out in front of the re-election campaign, we could not duplicate this mans antics if we tried.

  • The Truth

    Would love to see biden or odumbo get the grilling by the media that the republicans get on a regular basis.

  • am2sweet

    The only reason that Biden was made vice president is because he is so stupid that he makes Obama look halfway smart. Other than that he has no business in any public office except maybe dog catcher.

  • proudamerican

    Pay no attention to the useful idiot behind the curtain with phony hair. There is no reason in the world to do so. He is so naive, he thinks obama respects him and doesnt laugh at him when he is not around. obama and his wife, the first pug, hate ALL Americans even democratic ones. They loathe joe biden as well.

  • Larry E

    Biden, the head moron in DC, surpassing even her dimness Nancy P, is the only one who could be a worse president than Ozero of those who ran. Well maybe johnboy Edwards would be in the running there too….

  • mitchell

    Joe Biden, really don’t know how ignoranted,he is to the American people.What he really needs is an rocking chair.

  • Maynard Merrell

    Let us not forget that it was the majority of voters (People like majority. That’s Democracy)that elected Obama and Biden, a couple of circus clowns. Not those who believe in a Republic as our Constitution laid out for us. If you want to balme anybody, blame the majority. Ignorants elected ignorants for its government.

  • Ken

    A better and more accurate headline would be: “Joe Biden: Beltway Bubble Head.”

  • http://verizon Ann Rand

    He has a problem with telling the truth. He says that his wife and daughter were killed by a drunk driver, but the man’s daughter came forward and said that her father was not drunk when that accident happened. She says that her dad went through hell for years over that and was acquitted of that accusation. Seems that it’s “All About Joe”.

  • ARMYOF69

    Who brought that moron into that VP position anyway? I would not have him as a rat catcher.

  • chewinmule

    ” Mr Vice President, all due respect sir, get your finger out of my face or I’ll drop you right through the ring of your prune stained old ass!”

  • Yellow Horse

    What the hell makes biden of all people investagate that reporter??? Or Obummer running down Joe the plummer???Just who the hell do they think they are???

  • http://none dave thomas

    Biden thinks a football coach is something with wheels.

    Biden has an I Q slightly less than the room temperature of an igloo during a winter storm. But he should be President cause he is smarter than Obama and most democrats.
