Billy Madison Quote Winner

Joe Biden has given us a winner of a quote today, and what he said is so ridiculous and defies any kind of logic that he deserves the Billy Madison quote award. Here's what Biden said:

We have to spend money to keep from going bankrupt.

Whaaaa? Based upon that logic, the people who bought too much house, too much boat, too much car, and maxed out their dozens of credit cards should have spent even more money.

So, here you go, Joe. You really deserved this one:

[W]hat you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

The saddest part of that qu... (Below threshold)

The saddest part of that quote is that no one in the mainstream media seems to care. The journalists who are supposed to report news, information and stupidity about the government (any government) cannot seem to bring themselves to hold this administration to any type or reasonable standard.

I am not one who wants the media to leap on every mis-spoken word (that is not really appropriate or helpful, we all make mistakes) but when they ignore something that shows utter stupidity about the tangible problems of our country, by the people elected to lead, it is unforgiveable.

Mac Lorry:

Joe Biden probably thinks that opening a refrigerator's door cools the room it's in. Seems logical for those who don't understand how refrigerators actually work. It's the same idea behind Democrats taxing and spending to stimulate the economy. Seems logical on the surface, but the actual effect is just the opposite from what's intended. We can only hope there's something left to salvage in 2012.

And to think of the ration of crap the MSM used to heap on poor`ol Dan Quayle, and do I even have to mention "dubya".

But what the hell, everyone knows old Joe is just the Obama court jester, so who really takes him serious anyway.

Now we know why obama picked Biden as his VP. Fewer chances someone will try to take out Obama because it would leave Biden to move up to the main chair. Who wants that to happen.

Yes this is the guy Obama looked to for ADDING gravitas to his administration.

So how bad would the administration look if Joe Biden wasn't there?

Jeff Medcalf:

I hate to break it to you, jp2, but many of us were railing against Bush on economic policy. I really wish you'd stop the snide faux sophisticated schtick while you toss off irrelevant ad hominems, but at the very least you could try to be accurate in your irrelevant ad hominems.

On a related note, why don't blog comment boards have killfiles?

Robbing Peter to Pay Paul:

We all enjoy the whipping boy that is Joe "Gaffe Man" Biden. However, from a macro-economic perspective, please detail how the Gaffe Man's statement is incorrect. Jumping on the Gaffe Man is easy, but how is his statement actually inaccurate? For instance, if a business is looking at lagging sales revenue should it (a) do nothing or (b) spend its dwindling money, or even take a loan, on additional marketing and sales efforts in order to increase customers and sales?

"I hate to break it to you, jp2, but many of us were railing against Bush on economic policy."

Oh, he knows. He's been told many, many times. He's also been educated to the whole "most of the leftover deficit from the last few years happened while Democrats controlled Congress" thing.

jp2 is one of those people who bragged about how Pelosi and company were going to "fix things" in 100 hours in 2007, but who blindly went along with "100 working hours," then "100 working days" and "100 working weeks."

Heck, he apparently still thinks Bush personally controlled spending in the years 2001-2008...
