Biden is Appalled by Obama's Gaffes


WASHINGTON, D.C., 2009-08-03 — Vice President Joe Biden is appalled by the continuing series of gaffes that President Obama is making, ridiculing Special Olympians, referring to people of mixed race as "mutts", promising unemployment would not go above 8%, and most recently accusing the Boston police of racial profiling in the Gates case without any proof.

"I cringe every time he ad libs," said Biden, "waiting for the next shoe to drop. We are desperately trying to get him to stick to reading the teleprompter."

Biden noted that Obama was fairly successful in avoiding gaffes during the campaign, with the notable exception of telling Joe the Plumber that he wanted to "spread the wealth."

"He inadvertently revealed his real agenda with that slip," said Biden, "but he was able to deny it successfully, so that people are now surprised that he is governing as a redistributionist."

But Biden pointed out a more serious gaffe that Obama, made during the campaign. "When he misspoke in a debate with Hillary and said he would talk unconditionally to Iraq," said Biden, "he locked himself into a foreign policy that is costing him now. He is offering talks with Iraq while they thumb their noses at him and are very close to producing a nuclear weapon. He is offering talks to every rogue state! What other U.S. President conducted foreign policy based on a campaign error?"

"I think before I speak," said Biden. "That's why you don't hear me saying any dumb things."
