I’m not going to say that this election season, and the boatloads of horrible poll numbers, have gotten to Democrats, but Joe Biden does seem a bit brittle here, doesn’t he?
Vice President Biden jokingly expressed his frustration toward Republicans on Tuesday, accusing them of having insincere concerns about the budget deficit.
Biden jokingly said that GOP protests about the need for a balanced budget made him want to strangle them, which the vice president quickly clarified was a figure of speech.
“If I hear one more Republican tell me about balancing the budget, I am going to strangle them,” Biden said at a fundraiser in Minnesota, according to a pool report. “To the press, that’s a figure of speech.”
Ha ha! Oh, that Joe Biden is such a kidder.
The real problem is, as the left is slowly beginning to understand, it’s tough to know when the Obama administration is joking and when its really serious. My rule of thumb is that if there’s a camera rolling, it’s joke time.
