I remember back during the 2008 Presidential election that libs and Dems were hurling insults at Sarah Palin saying that she was "stupid" or "not smart enough." Well, let's contrast that with what has been happening with Vice President Joe "Gaffe" Biden.
He made a gaffe about Franklin Roosevelt going on television when the market crashed in 1929. But Roosevelt was not president yet and television was not commercially avaliable at the time.
He made a gaffe when he asked a wheelchair-bound man to "stand up and take a bow."
Sarah Palin never did or said anything that even came close to these two gaffes and they are only a small representation of Biden's repertoire.
Now, the Obama administration has had to step in once again and undo whatever damage Biden did by talking.
|The Obama administration poured cold water Monday on any notion it is giving Israel the green light to attack Iran or that it is reconsidering plans to engage diplomatically with the Islamic republic. |
Vice President Joe Biden said in an interview broadcast Sunday that the United States would not stand in the way of Israel in its dealings with Iran's nuclear ambitions.
But State Department spokesman Ian Kelly rebuffed suggestions from reporters that Biden could be seen as giving the Jewish state a green light to attack Iran, which it views as an existential threat.
I think Biden was pretty clear in what he said and left little room for interpretation. Here is his quote: "Israel can determine for itself -- it's a sovereign nation -- what's in their interest and what they decide to do relative to Iran and anyone else. We cannot dictate to another sovereign nation what they can and cannot do when they make a determination, if they make a determination, that they're existentially threatened."
Seems petty clear to me.
