Redux: Time for Biden to Resign

Janie, you know I love you….I’ll graciously accept your apology anytime now. 😉

Janie’s post from January 2007:

We all remember a few months back when Joe Biden had this to say about “Indians”:

“You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.”

Well, ole Biden has struck again. This time in an interview with The New York Observer, Biden makes what can be construed as a racist comment while attacking his would-be opponents in the 2008 Presidential race:

“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” he said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”

The article goes on to quote Biden referring to Hillary Clinton’s plan for Iraq as a “disaster,” while saying about John Edward’s plan, “I don’t think John Edwards knows what the heck he is talking about.”

This coming from the man that wants to partitian Iraq.

These comments present two problems:

1) In a political climate where Democrats need to band together to win the very important 2008 election, Biden is already trashing his opponents which will do nothing to strengthen the party.

2) The comment regarding Obama can be construed as racist, and gives the right a new talking point for which to attack him with and through association, all Democrats as well.

I think it’s time for ole Joe to go.

Joe Biden on the Daily Show

As I mentioned yesterday, I’m not the biggest Joe Biden fan. After his poorly worded comments in The New York Observer, Biden turned to The Daily Show in an attempt to redeem himself.

As ususal, Jon Stewart was spot on, and approached the subject in the perfect manner!

Joe Biden Enters Presidential Race


I couldn’t be happier about Sen. Joe Biden officially joining the field for the 2008 Democratic presidential bid. I think Joe Biden is a great man, patriot, and American. He will have his work cut out for himself running against the perceived Democratic “heavy weights” like Clinton, Obama, and Edwards. Nonetheless, if he can raise enough money and effectively spread his pro-American/Democratic message, I believe America will embrace this great politician. Good Luck, Joe!
