Joe Biden drops the f-word during health care signing

Ah, Joe Biden. If you didn’t exist, we’d have to invent you.

In the middle of the elaborate ceremony surrounding the signing of the health care bill, the vice president gave a fulsome introduction to President Barack Obama.

Biden then embraced the president and said in his ear – loud enough for the mikes to pick up – “This is a big [expletive] deal.” And he didn’t say Fargo.

You have to listen very carefully:

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs didn’t bother to deny Biden’s assessment. This what he sent out via Twitter:

What do you expect with the mentality of these two guys. Neitehr one of the know Jesus Christ on a personal basis. I hope they do before it is too late cause the Democratic party is not number one in heaven. Christianity is the number one party in heaven.

Hey Dick,

Your boy Dick Cheney told Senator Leahy to go “fubar” himself on the floor of the Senate. My bad I guess he doesn’t know Jesus either because he accepts his lesbian daughter for who she is. BTW, self righteous people like you give Christians a bad name. You’re a judgmental hypocrite and I feel sorry for you.

Hey, Dick, your guys Bush and Cheney have said the same thing. Cheney even did it on the Senate floor. It’s hypocrites like you that give Christianity a bad name.

Yep, your name does say it all. You don’t know what their PERSONAL religion is with God. President Obama is educated and I am assuming VP Biden also, so they are no dummies. How do you know who they know on a personal basis. And I guess you call yourself a Christian serving what God? God doesn’t look at parties, he looks at human beings & their souls. Go read a Bible & get some knowledge.

These people criticizing Biden are the same people who thought Bush was smarter than a 5th grader. Those same people probably don’t think Palin is actually really that dumb.

Now that health care has passed….when is that fat xenophobic slob Limbaugh leaving?

Sure I used the f-bomb on Pat Leahey on the floor of the Sentate.

So what? Rules on civility only apply to dems, not god-fearing conservative christians like me and W.

Oh yeah, I also said deficits don’t matter. Let me clarify: GOP deficit don’t matter, democratic deficits do matter. Got it?

Big deal. The man was excited and let an f-bomb slip out. Who among us has not made a mistake? If I had put as much work and campaigning into this bill as they have I would probably drop an f-bomb or two myself.

Also, where in the article did they discuss religion? Just wondering because I don’t get why everyone has to jump to religion right away. Just remember my favorite bible quote “Judge not lest thee be judged”

Just because you are educated does not mean that you can’t be dumb as dirt. Maybe they cheated to get through school. Or maybe someone changed there test scores so they would not fail. One thing for sure, Obama, Biden, Pelosi and Reed are all jokes. I’m looking forward to their reality show …. “THE FOUR STOOGES And How They Made America A Third World Country”.

It is amazing how hypocritical ppl are. When Reagan and Bush were pushing their agendas (cutting pell grants, iraq war, the recession) that had a tremendously negative impact on this country, there wasn’t nearly this much rhetoric or propaganda being peddled. The GOP is interested in only what it takes for them to stay rich, and the don’t give a damn about the poor ppl of this country that have no health care and no jobs. Socialism !!…………well what the heck is Social Security, Medicade and Medicare?? Educate yourselves ppl, don’t listen to these fools !!

Don’t ever question anyone’s association with the Lord because none of us know. The only ones who know for sure are the individual and God; you can think you know but you don’t. I too wonder how soon Limbaugh is leaving the USA – the only country in the world that allows him to spit out his hatred against people who don’t agree with him and hoping he takes Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity with him. Also what if God was decide over night to take away their millions and then they would have to live like the ordinary person, what they would do. Eight years of W turned me off of all Republicans.

Dick,

I never knew that the Democratic Party was mentioned in the Bible. You are an idiot. Based on your poor spelling and incorrect grammar, I am guessing that English is not your native language. Please be advised that the Republican Party is not a fan of non-domestic things…especially people.

Also, feel free to use a dictionary when using words that you do not understand. http://lmgtfy.com/?q=socialist

Best of luck!

Wait, because I am Christian, I can’t say the F word?

That makes no sense. I mean, I am not like Biden and saying it when there are mics around, but I drop as many F bombs as the next guy, whether he be christian, hindu, Jew, or Muslim.

ITS A WORD! Its not that big of a effing deal. Get the eff over youselve you eff.

What I like about it is that it is so versatile.

I mean, name another word with as many uses.

examples:

Man I am effed up.
It is so effing hot.
What the eff?
I would love to eff her!
My back is so effed.
Go eff yourself Mr. Cheney!

How ’bout uber-Christian George W. Bush describing columnist Adam Clymer during the 2000 campaign? Bushie leaned into Cheney and pointed to Clymer, and called him an “A**HOLE.” The mics picked it up. Didn’t Bushie say that his “favorite political philosopher was Jesus Christ, because He changed his heart?” I’m sure Jesus appreciated the “A-Hole” comment! Politicians are politicians…they aren’t perfect people; they try to convince the voters that they’re saintly or “Christian” for pure political reasons…and we’re too gullible…dumb sheep taken in by this righteous talk.

Christianity aside, Joe Biden is either a moron or senile. But since you mentioned it, attention morons, look how the Democrats and the liberal left demonize anyone who claims to be a born again Christian. IE, George Bush and Sarah Palin. You all are hypocrites and I wish you’d get over yourselves.

The point I think is when Bush, Cheeney, etc get overheard using profanity the press makes a big deal out of it. The press doesn’t when it’s a lib’dem.

Just use the same standard for all.
