Quote of the Day

Filed under: Economics,Politics — DRJ @ 6:45 pm



[Guest post by DRJ]

Jim Geraghty at NRO’s Campaign Spot highlights this quote from Joe Biden’s “rousing review of the government’s economic stimulus plan in a conversation with the nation’s governors:”

“In my wildest dreams, I never thought it would work this well.”

After noting that Nevada’s Office of Energy received $35 million and created 3 jobs, Geraghty quipped: “Apparently Biden’s wildest dream was that the $35 million would create two jobs.”

  1. The question really is whether Biden is naturally stupid, or if it is the inevitable outcome for someone who has spent his entire adult life in Washington politics.

  2. Or both. They could be synergistic.

  3. On the Fox Sunday show today, Krauthammer called Biden “The Sage of Providence,” when he recalled his plan to break up Iraq into three separate countries. Always remember, Palin was the idiot.

  4. Now, don’t pick on poor Joe. He can’t help himself.

    Paul (creator of "Staunch Brayer") (8e1095)

  5. He can’t help himself.

    Nor does it appear that he can help us. A thoroughly useless man.

  6. Its no longer in doubt, Joe Biden will do down in history as the stupidest Vice President in US history.

  7. Given the way history is written these days, Palin may be remembered as the stupidest Vice President … despite the fact she is neither stupid nor Vice President.

  8. Its no longer in doubt, Joe Biden will do down in history as the stupidest Vice President in US history.

    In all fairness, SPQR, wouldn’t he have to become the modern equivalent of a communist sympathizer if he were to compete with Henry Agard Wallace for that distinction?

    I would say, though, that Biden is definitely the most oafish VP we have ever had.

  9. “Its no longer in doubt, Joe Biden will do down in history as the stupidest Vice President in US history.”

    Biden is the perfect bookend to the sorriest President in US history. Tweedledum and Tweedledee.

  10. So basically if what Biden says is true, the Obama administration was lying when they promised unemployment would never hit 8% if the stimulus bill was passed. So they were lying then or they’re lying now. Or both, as DRJ noted.

  11. Joe also said that the $787B stimulus “saved” one million jobs. If you do the math, that’s $787,000 per job! I’m personally offering the Obama Administration a better deal. If they give me free money, I’ll create jobs for only $500,000 each. They could either create or save more jobs or keep the change.

  12. Well said, DRJ.

  13. Biden is the perfect bookend to the sorriest President in US history. Tweedledum and Tweedledee Tweedledummer.
