Joe Biden gaffes are rhetorical flourishes, says Obama

The other day when Joe Biden said the election of Barack Obama as president would precipitate a world crisis in his first six months of office, I was somewhat alarmed.

The New York Times reports today that Barack Obama has cleared up that statement.

“I think Joe sometimes engages in rhetorical flourishes,” Obama said as he and the MSM once again “sought to sweep aside another dustup” created by the leading gaffe architect of our time, Senator Joe Biden.

I get it now. When Joe Biden predicts an international crisis in the next six months, or when the he says the U.S. and France kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon, or that President Roosevelt went on television two years before he was elected president to explain the 1929 stock market crash, or when he said the surge in Iraq would fail and that what should be done is to split Iraq into three separate countries…well, those are all just “rhetorical flourishes.”

When you’re a Democrat and say something stupid and ignorant, you’re rhetorically flourishing. If you’re a Republican and say something stupid and ignorant, you’re simply stupid and ignorant…and probably a bigoted racist to boot.
