In his memorial speech today for the WV miners, VP Biden says "they hated the way Coach Rodriguez left West Virginia for Michigan." of course, the crowd erupts with applause....
that is nice bonus change
[inflammatory comment about democrats]
This belongs at a memorial speech? Really Joe?
fishing for votes. I guarantee that line will get another 100 votes out of that state for his ticket... until he comes to Michigan and says something about how RichRod was smart to get out of WV.
You should have went with, "This is a BIG FUCKING DEAL"
Joe Biden......(-_-)... that's all I've got to say
for anyone who doesn't want to watch the whole thing, go to 2:15 and listen for about 15 seconds.
he's not speaking here on Saturday.
Still a pathetic thing to say right before Obama comes to Ann Arbor. You don't think Biden's views and statements are representative of the Obama administration whatsoever?
to the crowd, i wouldn't take it too seriously
It's also known as establishing a connection or credibility with the audience. But, I think it's a little absurd. I guess it's more of a reflection of his audience, than it is of him. Either way, what does it matter, he didn't write that speech anyway.
It's far more a reflection of the audience. Their response said it all.
This guy played to the crowd too.
I love the guy's voice in the background towards the end that yells, "Do you know anything?", at Kerry. Great clip - makes me happy with my vote.
spread offense and RR
White House Divided?
if there is a loving a just God could this ever happen.
Palin can never be > than Biden. NEVER!!
If I had to look at one naked.... Palin > Biden.
I would say she is more of a GILF than a cougar.
but I'd trust either of them over the previous Vice President, who literally shot a 78-year-old man in the face.
Though in his defense, the other guy probably shouldn't have worn his pheasant hat into the woods...
Palin > Biden bc palín means quickie in spanish slang =)
this will provide for a hell of a joke in RR's Michigan retirement speech following a career of success vs OSU and 2 national titles.
i can see it now....
"boy, were those first couple years difficult. heck, even the vice president of the united states called me out."
... you have to wonder who wrote this for him; there are probably more living alumni of Michigan in the US than there are literate people in WVA.
... that said, go easy on the Veep; if you had hair plugs and a botox'd forehead, you'd make a few verbal flubs, too:
Get over it West Virginia. Pretty tasteless by Biden. As much as I don't like Obama, he is 1000 times better than Joe.
And I voted for you.
Biden. Although all the botox and the hair plugs make him look kind of like a Klingon.
What an asshole. As nauseating as the memorial service/political rally for Paul Wellstone. You're a fuckhead, Joe Biden.
You got a big cheer for your Rodriugez line, Joe. Just like you got a big cheer for your shout-out to your great friend and Senate colleague Robert Byrd, the former Kleagle and Exalted Cyclops of the West Virginia Ku Klux Klan.
You have to think that his speech writers are just fucking with him with all that he's said (and later backtracked).
Go Fuck Yourself Morgantown!
Looks like someone is desperate for approval. Stupid comment.
I didn't know you were like that too, Joe
You haven't been paying attention.
DAMN IT! How many times do I have to tell you people. Anything you put on the teleprompter Biden will read!
"Uh, uh, Chuck Graham, state senator, is here. Stand up, Chuck, let ‘em see you. Oh, God love you. What am I talking about."
Joe Biden to wheelchair-bound Missouri state senator, Charles Graham, September 9, 2008.
Just wait'll he talks in Michigan: "Uh, uh, Brock Mealer is here. Stand up, Brock, let ‘em see you. Oh, God love you. What am I talking about. Oh shit you CAN stand, hey, someone keep him off the stage...*runs*"
They were cheering at a funeral. Unbelievable. Biden is such an asshole.
What else they got to cheer about?
At the end of the day they still have to go home... in West Virginia.
"When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the princes of greed. He said, 'look, here's what happened'."
Joe Biden in interview with CBS News, September 2008. However, Roosevelt wasn't president in 1929 and televisions were still experimental.
The whole state of WV hates Rich Rodriguez, but that was uncalled for. I like Biden but some of the things he says makes me wonder WTF.
Either way...Go Blue!
What the hell is the big deal? He said that the miners didn't like RR leaving. He did not say:
-That he disliked the way RR left
-That he endorses how they felt
He just made a statement that would be appealing to his audience. I don't see where this is anything beyond pandering - and even that is questionable because he didn't state that he shared that view.
Could people find something legitimate to be outraged about?
Not sure why...
For being a reasonable human being

Keep 'em coming. Gold.
"You know, I'm embarrassed. Do you know the Web site number? I should have it in front of me and I don't. I'm actually embarrassed."

"This election year the choice is clear. One man stands ready to deliver change we desperately need. A man I'm proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next President of the United States...BARACK AMERICA!"

You almost have to see it to believe it.
