If ever the media were friends with Vice President Joe Biden, yesterday was not that day. Managing to hop from one gaffe to the next, Biden managed to slit up earning him a hat trick of embarrassment all in one day.
He kicked off his day first by referring, “to immoral bankers who go after members of the military as “Shylocks.” As Mr. Conservative reported yesterday:
Referencing his son, who served in the U.S. military in Iraq, Biden said, “People would come to him and talk about what was happening to them at home in terms of foreclosures, in terms of bad loans that were being — I mean, these Shylocks who took advantage of these women and men while overseas.”
Mere hours after apologizing for the racial slur, he went on to make yet another. Also reported yesterday by Mr. Conservative:
While speaking at a campaign finance reform rally in Iowa, Biden spoke of a meeting he had with a man named Lee Kuan Yew of Singapore. Amidst his speech, Biden stated that Yew was, “the wisest man in the Orient.”
And lastly, he went against all everything the president has been saying recently by saying that military forces may be deployed to fight ISIS on the ground. According to WND:
The vice president also insinuated that U.S. ground troops may be used to fight the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS or ISIL), a staunch contradiction to the White House’s strategy to “degrade and destroy” the extremists with an international coalition.
Biden has said previously that he’s been trying to align with a run for the oval office in 2016, but could you imagine? This would be the reality of our nation day after day – for four, or maybe even eight, years. Feel free to let us know why Biden is so persistent on making himself out to be an incompetent moron day after day in the comments below.
