Uh-oh! Biden's off his meds aagain!

Dana Mathewson

Joe Biden, speaking in Flint, Michigan, warned of increasing rapes and murders in town if Zippy's jobs bill isn't passed so Flint can hire more cops.

Now he's in the land of the cheese steak sandwich (well, better him than John Kerry) and sounds a similar warning:

FTA: "Today, Biden reiterated his warning at an event in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.“The other thing I’ve heard from my friends who oppose this – this whole jobs bill and this – that this is just temporary," Biden said. "Well let me tell you, it’s not temporary when that 911 call comes in and a woman’s being raped if a cop shows up in time to prevent the rape, it’s not temporary to that woman. It’s not temporary to the guy whose store is being held up and a gun is being pointed to his head. If a cop shows up and he’s not killed, that’s not temporary to that store owner. Give me a break, temporary! I wish these guys that thought it was temporary, I wish they had some notion what it’s like to be on the other side of a gun or a 200 pound man standing over you telling you to submit. Folks, it matters. It matters!” END QUOTE

I think it might be kinder to tell Joe that in the situations he's describing, it's doubtful the police would arrive on time to prevent the rape or the shooting. But Joe has a tenuous grasp of facts like these even in the best of times.


And if she should possess a handgun she can not only prevent the rape but perhaps do the state (and the People) a great service. Strange how Biden wants to force the public to pay for a seperate person to come with a firearm when it would be far cheaper to just arm and train the potential victim. But then, the liberals hypocrisy is boundless.

That, at least, is the answer that should be made by the GOP.
