Kind of typical of the discombobulated arguments
of the right wing to take one quote in a non-political
situation where the Vice-President is pressing the flesh
and turn it into some kind of excuse to attack the man
on his competence.
Maybe Jeff, a resident of the Midtown neighborhood
never inflated or exaggerated someone else's
accomplishments or skills to make them feel better
... probably judging from the tone of this remark,
but it sounds to me like that is what was going on
here. Biden did not blurt this out in the middle of
nuclear arms talks.
Whatever you think of Biden he's been an effective
US Senator for something over 30 years. It is so
insulting to every reader here to take up their time
with this pointless non-statement.
When this is the best that one side can do to make
the case for their return to power ... maybe Australian
treasurer, Wayne Swan's unusually blunt criticism of US
politics where he said 'cranks and crazies' had taken
over the Republicans and posed the biggest threat
to the world's largest economy, was right on point.
