Biden: Avoid Trains, Airplanes . . . And Interviews

225px-joe_biden_official_photo_portrait_2-cropped1Vice President Joe Biden’s office has had to issue a type of retraction after Biden advised people to avoid airplanes, subways and confined spaces due to the Swine Flu. Of course, you cannot just retract a vice presidential statement, so Biden’s office simply denied what Biden said and offered a new statement that he did not make.

Biden stated on NBC’s Today Show “I would tell members of my family — and I have — that I wouldn’t go anywhere in confined places now.”

The office with two hours was issuing a statement that Biden was speaking of travel to Mexico. Of course, the Administration is saying to avoid Mexico entirely and not just go and avoid confined places. Yet, his office stated “On the Today Show this morning, the vice president was asked what he would tell a family member who was considering air travel to Mexico this week,. The advice he is giving family members is the same advice the administration is giving to all Americans: that they should avoid unnecessary air travel to and from Mexico. If they are sick, they should avoid airplanes and other confined public spaces, such as subways.”

Of course, there is the problem of Biden saying “Its not just going to Mexico, if you’re in a confined aircraft and one person sneezes it goes all the way through the aircraft. That’s me. I would not be at this point, if they had another way of transportation, suggesting they ride the subway.” That is indeed you, Joe.

The fact is that I like Biden because he is straightforward. I have no doubt at all that he has told his family to avoid airplanes and subways. That might not be pleasing to the airline industry, but the spin from Biden’s office as a bit of a Soviet touch to it. Just say that the Administration does not support that view rather than destroy credibility but asking citizens if they are going to believe the government or their own ears.

  1. Bob Esq.,

    Well I will leave it up to your expertise sir. I am pleased that I ran across this site. Most everyone has been a wealth of information.

  2. Anonymously Yours:

    “Do you think that Dick Cheney could be used as substitute service upon Satan?”

    Cheney? No.

    Scalia on the other hand; now you’re talking about the last circle of Hell — TREASON TO BENEFACTOR.

    In that case, I’d say yes.

  3. Former Federal LEO: “Ultimately, though, the Court refused the request to proceed in forma pauperis on what might be considered a technicality: the plaintiff had not included instructions for how the U.S. Marshal could serve process on Satan.”

    Considering the case you linked was from 1971 I would have thought that the court could have just given the to Pat Robertson or Jerry Falwell (Liberty U founded in ’71). As His minions they could have found Him. 😉

  4. Bob Esq,

    Do you think that Dick Cheney could be used as substitute service upon Satan?

    I am sure that this action could now be afforded class action status as the class could easily 5 million.

    Federal Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 23 and 28 U.S.C.A. § 1332 (d).

    Class action lawsuits may be brought in federal court if the claim arises under federal law, or if the claim falls under 28 USCA § 1332 (d). Under § 1332 (d) (2) the federal district courts have original jurisdiction over any civil action where the amount in controversy exceeds $5,000,000 and either 1. any member of a class of plaintiffs is a citizen of a State different from any defendant; 2. any member of a class of plaintiffs is a foreign state or a citizen or subject of a foreign state and any defendant is a citizen of a State; or 3. any member of a class of plaintiffs is a citizen of a State and any defendant is a foreign state or a citizen or subject of a foreign state.[1] Nationwide plaintiff classes are possible, but such suits must have a commonality of issues across state lines.

    I was just wondering?

  5. I don’t see where anyone called anyone a bastard? Did I miss something?

  6. “If someone isn’t calling me a bastard I am not doing my job.”

    Don’t flatter yourself.

  7. The bigger cost is the loss in the “GNP” Gross National Product by the mere utterance of these words. Somethings should just stay within the family.

  8. But, but, the devil’s very handiwork was involved in the court’s denial of Mr. Mayo’s *in forma pauperis* because of a technicality; and you lawyers all know that legal technicalities can be the Devil (in the details)!

    Thanks Bob, Esq. that made my day.

    That perhaps, because of your unreasoning mind and ‘beliefs’ in foolish apparitions.

  10. I put Bush, Cheney, Obama and Biden in the same category with Hitler… mass murder, maiming of hundreds of thousands of people… untold pain and suffering to others but I hold Satan responsible for pulling their strings.

  11. Reaganite Republican Resistance,
    The name says it all. The adoration for a mediocre actor, controlled by GE, who signed off on the greatest tax increase in history, under the guise of saving social security, practiced voodoo economics, made a deal with Iran to wait to release the US hostages until his inauguration, then sold rockets to Iran and took part in Iran Contra which was treasonous and allowed himself to be given credit for the collapse of the USSR when he had nothing to do with it. This figurehead even was so confused he mixed up his movie roles with his own life and created the SDI based on a science fiction movie he had seen. A most clownish President serving as your ideal only says that you know little about history and less about true American values. The man’s only gift was that he was sincere in his simple mindedness and didn’t mind playing the racist card when it suited his keepers.

  12. Biden is a dangerous fool- his advice and a quarter will get you a cup of coffee at 7-11 (small).

    He has been on the wrong side of history forever, so his DNC-vaunted “experience” has little value… he doesn’t appear to have learned a thing.

    Like Obama, he vehemently opposed the highly-successful Iraq “Surge” strategy- instead, Biden favored surrender and came-up with a harebrained proposal to split the country 3-ways. And also like his boss, he never once admitted that McCain, Petreus, and Bush were right, and won the war… and that he and Barack were way, way off.

    He opposed every element of Reagan’s defense buildup that toppled the USSR as “dangerous”- and opposed the first Gulf war, which would have allowed Sadam to keep Kuwait and control a large chunk of the world’s oil supplies.

    In the 1987 presidential primaries, he not only plaguerized British Labor leader Neil Kinnock’s speeches wholesale… but actually co-opted his entire life story, falsely claiming to have been the “first in his family to go to college” and a “coal-miner’s son”… when in fact Biden’s father was a car salesman (no surprise to anyone there, since Biden looks like one himself).

    Joey Plugs often says bizarre things that display a strange disconnect with reality… better chain him to a telemprompter every time he heads-out the door.

  13. bdaman,
    Followed your link and it went to comments I already was quite familiar with. I still ask what is your point in posting it and how does it relate to?:

    “I think we should turn him over to the CIA and find out what else he knows.”

    You’re meaning escapes me though I suspect to you it represents some irony that only you might find ironic.

  14. Say it aint so, Joe! or that it *is*, Joe!, or Wait!, that *it might be*, Joe! or…

    I like Joe, ’cause he is a regular Joe. The White House’s spinning what he said makes Americans wonder that if they will spin and lie about something like this, then what other lies are they spoutin’ ‘n spinnin’.

    Let Joe speak dadgummit and do not alter his words afterwards. That revives the whole Biden Plagiarism Controversy, for me, at least.

    The man is human and more honest than others in public office.

  15. bdaman,
    I might be able to discuss your point, if i could understand clearly what you are stating. Perhaps un-garbling the comment would help.

    You continue to amaze me with your gross and florid stupidity. I really don’t give a damn whether or not you like
    Joe Biden, but comparing him to Hitler shows such a complete ignorance of history as to reach beyond the pale. You can not even compare the two men I loathe most today like Bush/Cheney with Hitler and/or Stalin. Have B/C behaved evilly, you betcha. Their worst crimes, however, don’t come near what Hitler and Stalin did. By making these comparisons you destroy your case and reveal yourself to be a hysterical, radical wannabee.

    Perhaps though I’m misjudging you, so to be fair I offer the other alternative which is that you’re a whore for some Neo-Con fatcat and are trying to make the anti-torture people look bad with your drivel.

  16. I like Ol Joe and he is straight forward. I’d tell everyone the exact same thing regardless if it was a family member.

    Joe told us that there was going to be alot of tough decission Barack was going to have to make including foreign policy. But here’s the point he wanted to make, mark my words, mark my words, it will not be six months before the world test Barack Obama like they did John, Bobby,Jack and Ted. The world is looking and we are about to install a brilliant 47 year old as the President of the United States of America. Remember this standing here in this room if you don’t remember anything else I said, WATCH, WE ARE GONNA HAVE AN INTERNATIONAL CRISIS, a GENERATED CRISIS to test the mettle of this guy. He’s gonna have to make some really tough, he doesn’t know what the decission is going to be but HE PROMISE YOU IT WILL OCCUR. Having been a student of history and has served under seven presidents. HE GAR-UN-T’s YOU IT”S GONNA HAPPEN. He could give us four or five different scenarios where it might originate, but it will happen, HE GAR-RUN-T dat. By golly Joe was right, we’ve got’em. I think we should turn him over to the CIA and find out what else he knows.

  17. Biden has bigger problems than sneezing on an airplane. He has been an international War Criminal for years in initiating, funding, conspiring and waging Wars of Aggression in Iraq and Afghanistan. A War of Aggression is the supreme international crime for which there is no statute of limitations. The U.S. torture is only one part of committing War of Aggression. Prosecution of U.S. War Crimes would lead right to Biden’s and Obama’s doorsteps.

    It is a shame and disgrace for some of the U.S. Universities, like Wake Forest University, to be giving Biden their honorary Doctor of Laws degree at his commencement speeches. Hitler was a Warmonger / War Criminal – Biden is a Warmonger / War Criminal. Why not give Hitler a Doctor of Laws?
