Make It Stop

For the love of god is there no end to this man’s stupidity:

V.P. BIDEN: Well, the way in which we measure it is—I think most scholars would say—is that as long as you have a weapon sufficient to be able to provide your self-defense. I did one of these town-hall meetings on the Internet and one guy said, “Well, what happens when the end days come? What happens when there’s the earthquake? I live in California, and I have to protect myself.”

I said, “Well, you know, my shotgun will do better for you than your AR-15, because you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door.” Most people can handle a shotgun a hell of a lot better than they can a semiautomatic weapon in terms of both their aim and in terms of their ability to deter people coming. We can argue whether that’s true or not, but it is no argument that, for example, a shotgun could do the same job of protecting you. Now, granted, you can come back and say, “Well, a machine gun could do a better job of protecting me.” No one’s arguing we should make machine guns legal.

No one could ever claim that Biden is smart but this…this just takes the cake.  Seriously?

Shoot a gun indiscriminately thru a door to “deter people coming”.  And just who could those “people” be?

  • UPS delivery
  • USPS mailman
  • Neighbor
  • Kid from next door
  • etc…

As bad as his original advice from a week or so ago about just firing two shotgun blasts from a porch – which is highly illegal no matter what the circumstances are – this just goes beyond it all.

The worst part is that the sheeple will lap this up.  We don’t live in interesting times anymore folks.

We live in perilous times when someone with the mental acumen of a hammer is next in line to the presidency.

    Kris, the sheeple are already following the good Veep’s advice….

    I agree that the Vice President Stupid should pay the legal defense of the moron who followed his advice.

    In the immortal words of Obi Wan Kenobi; “Who is the bigger fool, The Fool, or the one who follows him?”

    People voted for this guy…in the last election and for how many preceding it as a Senator from Delaware? I’m speechless.

  3. cg23sailor

    Well that explains it Steve.

    The same people who voted for this guy, are the same people that think end to end and back to back Petrochemical plants, constitute a “garden state”.

  4. Biden is an attorney and he gives out advice like that? He found law school to be the “biggest bore in the world.” Maybe he should have paid attention.

    The man is incompetent in two occupations. God help the US of A.

  5. Criminal negligence and reckless homicide come to mind after reading Biden’s suggestion. Fire indiscriminately? Back on the block in the real world, that’s pretty much akin to a drive by shooting. Last time I checked, people went to prison for it.
    Dear God,
    Please do spare us too much more of Obama’s and Biden’s stupidity! In the end, it can’t all come down to this…

    It’s amazing for all the gaffes he’s made over the years – the press leaves him alone. Quale spells “potato” wrong and they wouldn’t let him forget it.

    Well, I guess with these times its hard to be amazed anymore.

    You mean Quayle?

    Call Obama what you will, Dangerous, wrong for the country, downright evil, whatever… One thing he is not, is stupid. Even the most idiotic crap Obama has done, has been done with a purpose. One not so great for the future of our country, but with purpose all the same.

    So why did he take such a bubbling, embarrassing stooge as a running mate and Veep? Again, Obama is not stupid and there IS a purpose for it.

    Assassination insurance.

    Simply by being the first Black President, he is in the crosshairs for many a nutjob racist in this country, from the KKK, to the Neo-Nazis and other White Supremist idiots. Even if he was the Next Ronald Reagan at heart, simply the color of his skin raises the specter of some dumbarse attempting to take a shot at him.

    Add to that that he knows that his plans for America will not sit well with the majority of Conservative right. and that even his liberal sheeple will (possibly, hopefully) in the end when his goal becomes undeniably clear, will feel betrayed…. The odds of someone making the attempt is very high indeed.

    Picking such a bumbling moron as Biden was a well calculated move to keep himself safe, because even the most strident nutjob out there would NOT DARE risk having such a moron as Biden become President!

    • Bill Brandt

      cg23sailor – I don’t think he is that calculating – Presidents pick VPs on the basis of how many votes they can get – that is the calculation.

      As far as Obama, I just finished an interesting book written about the Secret Service – by an ex-agent – he goes into the antics of ex-Presidents from Carter (a big fraud from his desired public persona -= eg, the suitcases he carried for view of the press were empty) –

      I think the current political climate is what has been discussed on Chicago Boyz – an era of tribalism – that these politicians vote with their party whether they agree with the issue or not (look at Hegel getting confirmed)

      Obama has a formidable political; machine – imagine beating the Clintons

      Has his own enemies list – look at the news today – having the audacity to threaten both Woodward and Lanny Davis – as paranoid and vindictive as Nixon – it will be interesting to see what the liberal press establishment does – I’m not holding by breath.

  9. He really suggested a couple of rounds through the door? He actually said that? On the record or off, that is recklessly stupid beyond the pale. Please dont allow him near any sharp objects (or artillery of any description – or international diplomacy).

    “The problem with communication is the illusion that it has been accomplished.” – George Bernard Shaw

    • HD – he did say it, on the record, in an interview with the magazine Field and Stream.
      He also said – on the record in another interview – that he told his wife to take their shotgun outside onto their balcony and fire off “two blasts” if she felt threatened by an intruder.
      No kidding.
      We are screwed.

    IMHO he is merely a reflection of the intellectual heft of those who voted for him and Nero. Twice. Ben Franklin was prescient. As Lex used to say, “we are in the best of hands….
