Reverence Being What It Is ……………..

Reverence Being What It Is ………………….

There’s no doubt in my mind that the political landscape the world over has its idiots and intellectuals. In the country of my birth , England- we had a Labour MP named George Galloway once describe the Taliban as being ‘persecuted just as much as the Palestinians’. Now don’t get me wrong Galloway at the time was elected by his constituents to represent them in the House of Parliament in Westminster ,London. And while serving them, he was a vocal opponent of both the Afghan and Iraqi invasions. At the time, Tony Blair was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. In large part Blair chose to follow George W. Bush avidly, down this path , despite some opposition from within his own political party, Labour Party and from both opposition parties the Conservative Party and the Liberal Democrats .

Several years into the conflict and with mounting casualties amongst the coalition forces . Galloway was still spouting his diatribe while at the same time steadily gaining some support. This essentially became his mandate to be what he felt was the ‘voice of reason’ amongst his party members and his peers in the House of Parliament. Alas, Galloway’s rise to infamy was as swift as his fall into relative obscurity, as he’s no longer an MP. He has since appeared on several game and reality shows in the UK and at the same he continues to make a complete ass of himself whilst he’s in the public domain.

In Italy , Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi , an admitted philanderer and misogynist has publicly derided fellow opposition members , especially those who happen to be female. He has suggested that women ought not to be at all involved in politics . And that their best attributes are when they’re servicing their husbands sexually either in the act of coitus or orally. This coming from a man who has been married several times and as recently as 2008 was sexually involved with a female aide while at the same being romantically involved with a call girl. When broached on the subject and the fact that he’s still married. Berlusconi’s response was that ‘he’s a man’ and what ‘he does in the bedroom and whom he’s doing it with shouldn’t at all be the concern of the Italian people’. What may well be even more abhorrent concerning Berlusconi’s candor has been his outspokenness and vapid racial attacks on the minorities within the country. Even those who are now second or third generation Italians, who have fled either from the North African continent or dependencies once under the country’s rule or influence. Never let it be said that Berlusconi wasn’t an equal opportunity bigot.

Come full circle and it appears that Vice President Joe Biden continues to show what he lacks in candor he more than makes up for with his apparent lack of intelligence and sheer stupidity ! And during the Presidential election he was thought of as being the smart and prudent choice as Barack Obama’s nominee for the VP position ? We were led to believe that his knowledge of diplomatic affairs would counterbalance the apparent weakness that Obama had in that arena. Given Biden’s faux-pas’ as of late ,. I’m not so sure that he is as smart as some had made him out to be. The guy is an ass and his latest actions simply proves that point ! Though it has to be said that his actions are no worse than the profanity laced insult that Dick Cheney once used when he directed his tirade at Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt) , in telling him to “go fu_k himself and calling him a fu_king as_hole” ! An apology was never uttered to Leahy by the former Vice President .Nor was he ever censured for those remarks. The words uttered at the time were during a beak in the business being conducted on the floor of the US Senate . Kind of makes you wonder what they purportedly do for fun in the Senate when they’re not at each others’ throats ?

There’s noting like dropping the f-bomb in the accompaniment of the President and the convened White House Press Corps in attendance is there ?

Vice President Biden caught on mic; calls health care bill a ‘big f—ing deal’

By Michael Sheridan , Daily News Staff Writer

Health care reform isn’t just a big deal, it’s a “big f—ing deal.”

At least, that’s what Vice President Joe Biden thinks.

The 67-year-old former senator introduced President Obama prior to his signing of the historic health care reform bill into law on Tuesday, and let the colorful word slip while shaking the commander-in-chief’s hand.

“You did it,” Biden told his boss. “It’s a big f—ing deal.”

In response, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs tweeted: “And yes Mr. Vice President, you’re right…”

This, of course, isn’t the first time the VP has been cause in a verbal gaffe. He was similarly caught on mic last year using the f-word while at an event with Amtrak to promote the stimulus plan.

“Oh give me a f—ing break,” Biden said in March 2009 to a former Senate colleague on a live mic.

Foul language may be a favorite for vice presidents. Ex-Veep Dick Cheney famously used the infamous phrase on several occasions during his two terms.

During a heated discussion on the Senate floor, Cheney reportedly told Sen. Patrick J. Leahy (D-Vt.) to go “f— yourself.”

==============================================

Biden with his apparent slip of the tongue after the health-care reform bill had just been passed in the House and soon to be voted on in the Senate . Well perhaps his word could have been better chosen given the arena he was in at the time. When asked on how he felt about the bill being passed , Biden’s alleged retort and response was said to be …………”big fu_king deal ” ! Now either I’m mistaken but this was a hard fought victory on the part of the Democrats , despite opposition from within ‘his own party’ and from the Republicans as well. But this can’t have been the response that the convened press or those who were in Biden’s accompaniment could have expected at the time . Simply put, you get what you deserve when you sometimes surround yourselves with idiots or supposed intellectuals who someone has deemed as being smart. Biden has simply proved that he’s neither smart or knows how to properly conduct himself and treat the his position with the reverence it deserves. Instead he comes off looking like a drunken idiot completely unaware of his surroundings and the very reason why he now holds the second most powerful political position in the world. God forbid that something should happen to the President . Because I for one would hate to see how Joe Biden would conduct himself , if ever he were to hold the position of President of the United States ! Has he even got a clue as to what the job even entails to begin with ?

  1. Biden may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but I’ll take him over that elitist jerk Cheney any day. At least Joe hasn’t shot anyone yet.

      The choices oh the choices ! Obama took the safe route with Biden . And it’s going to end up costing him if Biden continues in this vein. The guy is a damn lawyer but yet he carries on like a friggin’ lout. He has no reverence and he certainly isn’t as bright and knowledgeable as people make him to be on diplomatic affairs. All Biden has been about are the photo-ops that he can avail himself when he’s traveled abroad first as a Senator and then as the current VP.

      As for Cheney , he was never the brightest bulb in the room. And he’s a lying sack of fecal matter and a coward to boot !

      The thing I’ve noticed with the candidates who seek high office here in the US. It’s never been about intelligence much less substantive acumen. It has never been about character. It has come down to style over substance and who has the ‘deepest pockets’ and enough of the carpetbaggers in tow to do all of the ‘dirty work’ and that has been it !

      And anyone who thinks that Sarah Palin has the intelligence or acumen to be Vice President much less President , has either being taking illicit substances or are too stupid to realize how dumb the woman actually is. Anyone who simply can’t answer a question and tell you what it is that US Supreme Court does much less name a judgment passed down by them shouldn’t be holding high office in any branch of the federal government.

  2. Ah shit and f…! You should hear them off mic and camera guys! I have been close personal friends with several Members of Congress and State Legislature. Man most of them could swear better than a salty sailor…which I was. More than a few I had to say embarassed me. The only time I used to curse….I mean curse…was when really pissed…course that was better than drawing my weapon and shooting someone. But, really I was extremely careful in uniform and out in public, I dunno, it is just my nature….and it rubbed off on my trainees, both as a cop and Corrections’ Training Sergeant.
    But you’d think this buttheads would choose words more carefully. Ah well, as said Biden (is like neutered male dog) is a better choice than mad dog Cheney, crrook Spiro Agnew, and of course you should have heard the tapes of that Quaker Richard Milhous Nixon….made one blush.

      With the age of the internet and video camera phones. A stupid incident such as this can be seen the world over in seconds. The problem is that these gaffes by Biden just seem to happen with immense regularity . But he’s never apologetic and neither does he care .

      This is how dumb Biden is, he’s in an interview and then he’s suggesting the fact and insinuate that he was proud that Delaware his home state, actually had slaves . What on God’s green earth is there to be proud about concerning that ?

      I’s gonna do mammy ! Do you think that the n_ggas will mind ?
      These are the type of gaffes that’ll happen next concerning this a_s !

      As for Nixon , well we all know what a rat fink bas_tard he was from the get-go . And the same with Agnew as well !

      There’s a level of decorum that’s expected of your highest ranking dignitaries no matter where they are at the time. People seem to forget that they represent the nation and its electorate as well their citizens domestically and on the international stage even if they’re operating domestically. Especially given that the foreign press will no doubt report everything that emanates from the White House official or unofficial .
