• Joe Biden Uses Commencement Address to Mock China

    "Give me a break!"

    Someone really needs to let the higher-ups in the Obama administration know that graduation speeches are supposed to consist of uplifting, inspiring words for students who are about to go out into the world and make names for themselves. Between Joe Biden’s commencement address at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs and Obama’s speech at West Point on Wednesday, it’s pretty clear these guys have no idea what the purpose of these events are. 

    While Obama was busy defending all of his foreign policy failures, Uncle Joe was utilizing a different–and rather bizarre–approach. He used his graduation speech as an excuse to attack China, mocking them for having no “innovative projects.” The last I checked, China was the world’s second largest economy. And, as Donald Trump so frequently reminds us, they’re “eating our lunch.” While I have no problem with anyone talking tough on China, it was simply odd to hear Biden do it in this venue, and of all the things he could have attacked them on, from human rights violations to currency manipulation, why did he make the decision to go after them for a lack of innovation? That just seems petty…and completely misinformed.

    But hey, what do I know? Joey COULD be our next president…
