O.K. , that wasn’t the original tile to the article below.
Apparently Biden still hasn’t figured out that one of the reasons he was selected by Obama to be his running because he would be a life insurance policy for Obama.
It certainly wasn’t for the 3 electoral college votes. (Source)
Biden will have a difficult time working with the fact that he is a serial groper of both women and young girls.
He clearly is taking a page out of Obama’s play book and wants to be America’s bowing president.
Though he appears to be somewhat lucid during his delivery, make no mistake about it he represents the best the Progressive/Democrat/Marxists has to offer.
Original Title Here: Biden tells Europeans in Munich that America is ‘an embarrassment.’
Biden is known primarily for his oratorical gaffes and his is groping young girls and women.
Let the DNC choose him as their flag barer and be comfortable that we will see President Trump crush his so badly that they only thing left of him will be hair plugs that stuck to the floor.
The Punching Bag Years
Of course, Biden stayed in political life, running for president in a star-crossed 1988 campaign and presiding over the confirmation hearings of Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas , drawing more critical press responses in the process.
It was in these years that Biden started to fashion a reputation, the Washington consensus seems to be then as a clownish figure. (Source)
He was sometimes dismissed as a not-so-bright windbag.
“The America I see values basic human decency, not snatching children from their parents or turning our back on refugees at our border.
Americans know that’s not right,” the former vice president and potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate told the Munich Security Conference.
“The American people understand plainly that this makes us an embarrassment.
The American people know, overwhelmingly, that it is not right.
That it is not who we are.”
Biden, 76, speaking at the annual gathering of foreign policy leaders, didn’t mention Trump by name.
But, despite a longstanding tradition of politics “stopping at the water’s edge” and refraining from criticizing a commander-in-chief while on foreign soil,
Biden took the opportunity to blast him, even veering into criticism of domestic policy as he launched into what sounded like a stump speech.
The former vice president was speaking exactly three-quarters of a century after American troops were fighting against Germans at the Battle of Anzio and Allied military staffs were deep into planning for the D-Day invasion of Normandy less than 4 months later.
Biden said: “While I cannot speak today as an elected government official who is able to set policy, I can speak as a citizen.
I can offer insight into my country.
I know we’ve heard a lot today about leadership, but in my experience, leadership only exists if somebody — and others — are with you.
Leadership in the absence of people who are with you is not leadership.”
That concept of American politics ending at “the water’s edge” was formulated in 1947 by Sen. Arthur Vandenberg, a Republican from Michigan who was then the Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman.
He was urging President Harry Truman to take a bipartisan approach to foreign policy.
Biden’s jabs drew applause from European critics of Trump hours after Vice President Mike Pence had spoken at the conference lauding the president’s efforts to press NATO allies to increase defense spending in the face of Russian aggression.
Ironically, Biden lambasted Trump at the high-profile conference for making his grievances with allies public.
“You’re never allowed to disagree with your brothers and sisters in public,” he said.
“Today, because of, I think, a lack of leadership coming from the other side of the Atlantic, we find ourselves in a different place,and it’s uncomfortable.”
Biden alluded to limbering up for a bid for the 2020 Democratic nomination, which would be his third tilt at White House, after sputtering attempts in 1988 and 2008.
“I have spent the better part of the last two years traveling throughout the United States of America, from Minnesota to Texas; from Boston to Birmingham,” he said.
“I can assure you, that the American people, the ultimate wellspring of power in the United States of America, remain committed to engaging the world with decency and respect.”
He added, “Those same people who I met all across the United States, who may feel disconnected, discounted, ignored, or left behind.
They still believe, as I do, that the core values enshrined in our alliances are worth defending.”
