Joe Biden endorses New York governor,
then un-endorses him

David Patterson is blind, but he's not deaf. He would have sworn he heard Joe Biden's endorsement.

David Patterson is blind, but he's not deaf. He would have sworn he heard Joe Biden's endorsement.

Joe Biden gushed about New York Governor David Patterson at a Democrat fundraiser on Tuesday.

“Your once and future governor of the state of New York has been extremely generous to Barack and me and has been a major part of us trying to put this economy back together.”

Everyone – and we mean everyone – interpreted the Veep’s words as a strong endorsement for the highly unpopular governor. However, Democrat New York state Attorney General Andrew Cuomo is handily ahead of Patterson in all the polls.

When Biden realized he’d backed a loser, he un-gushed. Why, much to everyone’s surprise, Biden said his words were not an endorsement.

“It was a statement of friendship and admiration for the governor,” his spokesman insisted, “and was not intended as a political statement.”

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs wanted nothing to do with the controversy.

“I have not seen the remarks,” he ducked. “But let me go see if I can find that and see what the context is.”

The context is simple: Joe Biden makes Dan Quayle look like Albert Einstein.

I find it sickening that so many political types need to have spokesmen clarify what they said 30 minutes earlier…..

I agree, Joe Biden makes Dan Quayle look like Albert Einstein. But what is even scarier, BHO is starting to make Joe Biden look absolutely Presidential!
