• Hey, Earnest: What Up With All These Biden Gaffes Lately?

    It’s one thing for Vice President Joe Biden to say something that hurts his boss. It’s quite another when he’s out there spit-balling on things that offend America’s precious few allies in the fight against ISIS. Many have concluded that Biden was clearly telling the truth when he proclaimed in recent days that “Our biggest problem is our allies,” as he called out the Turks, the Saudis, and the Emirates. But given the stakes, he probably should have kept that one to himself.

    The latest gaffe is calling into question why Uncle Joe has had such an avalanche of unfortunate misspeaks in a very condensed period of time, and that’s what ABC’s Jon Karl grilled White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest about today.

    The Vice President has apologized to the Emirates, he has apologized to the Turks, he may or may not apologize next to the Saudis,” pointed out Karl. “A few weeks ago, he apologized to the ADL for using the term ‘shylock.’ He took heat for using the term ‘Orient’ to describe Asia. He praised Bob Packwood before a women’s group…”

    Let’s also not forget when Biden referred to his own job as a “bitch” on Thursday.

    Earnest’s response? “The Vice President is somebody who has enough character to admit when he’s made a mistake.”

    Okay, got it. May the gaffes continue then! Don’t worry; Joey will always say he’s sorry afterwards.

    Meanwhile, Fox News reporter Wendell Goler pressed Mr. Earnest on whether Obama would rather Biden not deliver speeches at all…and while he’s at it, wouldn’t the president appreciate it if his former Defense Secretary would shut up too?

    Well, Wendell, I think the president himself is the person who is setting the agenda,” answered the Press Secretary.

    Could have fooled us!
