How is this guy in the Senate, let alone working in any institution that is supposed to be respected at all. First, let us recall this little racist slur about Indian Americans:
Then early during his "campaign" for the presidency he talked about Barack Obama. Racist, pure and simple. Here's the quote:
"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," Biden said. "I mean, that's a storybook, man."
Notice later in the article the media goes to bat for him, accepting his half-assed apology and not making much of a fuss about it. In fact, unless you're engaged in politics pretty heavily this is probably pretty new to you. Imagine if a Republican had said that, his career would be over. Remember George Allen's infamous "Macaca" quote?
Two strikes and two passes. Now today he comes out of left field (literally) and says that Iowa's education system is better than D.C.'s mainly because there is less African-Americans there. Think you read that wrong? Here's Biden's own words:
After a lengthy critique of Bush administration education policies, Biden attempted to explain why some schools perform better than others -- in Iowa, for instance, compared with the District. "There's less than 1 percent of the population of Iowa that is African American. There is probably less than 4 or 5 percent that are minorities. What is in Washington? So look, it goes back to what you start off with, what you're dealing with," Biden said.
Where's the uproar here? Where's the media? Where's Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson? The left is race baiters pure and simple and they don't care what the "progressive" left says or does so long as they are on board the left's agenda. Hell, Robert Byrd (D-WV) was a former KKK leader and he's one of the most influential Democrats in the Senate. Biden is a racist, but he advances the political sway of the socialist left in our Congress and he's getting a free pass on being an out-in-the-open racist simply because he brings in money to people like Sharpton, Clinton, et al. No outrage since this damages their bottom line.
Oh yea, here is the headline for this article:
"Biden Stumbles in Interview"
If President Bush had said this, do you have any idea what that headline would have read? They call such open racism a "stumble"? What the hell is wrong with the Left?
