Vice President Joe Biden is known for being something of a loose cannon, prone to engaging his vocal chords ahead of his brain. He has recently out done himself. At first blush it seems the Romney people should be pounding the campaign drums to the tune of: “We can’t have four more years of this fruit cake being a heart beat away from the presidency.”
The MSM, instead of being in full cry over Biden’s congenital foot-in-mouth disease as in: “OMG this guy could become the leader of the free world!” has been equally muted.
The restrained response from Romney partisans is easily explainable: Biden’s unhinged behavior doesn’t come close to being the danger to the republic that four more years of the current occupant of the Oval Office represents. Biden, at least, provides comedy relief while there is nothing humorous about this president ruling (with more flexibility) for a second term.
As for the MSM, it is so protective of King Obama and his Court that it is now forced to hide its collective eyes from the sight of a VP who doesn’t seem to know what state he is in, or even what century.
Does anyone remember George McGovern’s vice presidential pick, Missouri U.S. Sen. Thomas F. Eagleton? When it became public that Eagleton had been hospitalized on three occasions for depression and had undergone electroshock therapy, it created such a media storm that he was blown right off the Democrat ticket.
Now we have a VP who, as far as we know, hasn’t even sought treatment!
