Joe Biden: The Lyin’ King’s Presidential Insurance Policy

Obama_Biden_shake_hands_after_debt_ceiling_dealOn Wednesday the Gallup Poll reported that our Imperial President’s approval rating was at a 9 month low; 45%. Why the popularity needle has not yet hit zero is certainly a question worth asking but on Tuesday evening Joe Biden demonstrated, yet again, why The Lyin’ King’s numbers are a moot point. Biden, as Charlatan-In-Chief, might be as bad as what is already in place.

Joe Biden, effusively praising then-Senator-Anointed, Democrat presidential candidate, for being “clean and articulate”, was selected as his vice presidential running mate because of his reputedly extensive experience with foreign policy and his political wisdom. These qualities were supposed to offset the presidential candidate’s absolute lack of qualification fro the presidency.

It is an understatement to say that the last four and a half years have proven these assumptions to be categorically false. Not only is Biden incompetent in the arena of foreign affairs but he is a hopeless bungler domestically as well. He has exhibited an astonishing lack of familiarity with the language. He has even swiped Neil Kinnock’s biography as his own.

On Tuesday evening Joe Biden was performing the prime function of today’s Democrat. It had nothing to do with safeguarding America; Biden was campaigning. Democrats, in the current regime, have not left campaign and fund-raising mode since the 2008 elections. The objective is an all-out attempt to keep the Senate and to take back the House. So, Tuesday, Biden attended a campaign event for Massachusetts Democrat Senate hopeful, Ed Markey. Markey, evidently bored with his barnacle-like squat in Congress (since 1976), and relying on his decades-old name recognition, is grabbing for John Kerry’s vacated Senatorial seat.

Gabriel Gomez, a former Navy SEAL and a newcomer to politics, is Markey’s Republican opponent. He is virtually unknown. Evidence suggests that Biden’s help with Markey wasn’t very helpful. Gomez moved up in the polls on Wednesday. Biden said so many things that were dim-witted at best and false at worst that he may have broken his own record for foot-in-pie-hole -itis during one appearance:

— “…the last thing in the world we need now is someone who will go down to the United States Senate and support Ted Cruz, support the new senator from Kentucky … or the old senator from Kentucky.” One supposes that it is too much to ask of his brain to remember the names but, “the new Senator” is Rand Paul and the “old Senator would be Mitch McConnell.
