A Speech for the Ages…

Posted by maker on February 7, 2009

“In other countries the banks are too big for the countries. They’re bigger than the sum of the country…Literally the bank’s bigger. They make up about 2 percent of our GDP. Other countries are 35 to 40 percent. Anybody can remember a time when that’s happened before? Can anybody remember a time when, uh, we found ourselves in a recession that, worldwide, that both relates to the way it was generated it started here with the way we have this sort of sclerosis in our, in our, in, you know the blood stream and flow of capital. Anybody remember a time when we’re talking about, if we don’t make some real changes, deficits that are a trillion two hundred billion dollars a year for as far as the eye can see, if we don’t, ah, get it right, which you guys have already?” -Joe Biden 2/6/09

Over the past few days we have seen a much different Obama than previously marketed. The Obama we now see is aggressively partisan and even tempermental in his frustration over not getting his bill passed without opposition. Perhaps in light of this recent change, Joe is doing his damnedest to make Obama look like the well-spoken, level-headed cherub we have been told he is. In that case, Joe, you’re a friggin’ genius.
