Where’s the Civility? The Vice President Calls Us “Terrorists”
After making such a big deal about hate rhetoric and Gabby Giffords, the vice president of the United States calls opponents terrorists, the media helps bury the story. Why did they ask him? Why did Scott Pelley ask him if they weren’t gonna show the answer? Maybe they didn’t like his answer. But when Biden was asked about what he spoke with Giffords about he joked, “She’s now a member of the cracked head club like me.” I think he said that to her. She is not able to speak yet. She’s able to vote, but she’s not able to speak. And Biden either said to her, “Hey, hey, hey, how are you? You know, hey, Chuck, stand up, let ’em see you. Oh, my God, love you. God love you, Chuck’s in a wheelchair, can’t stand. Well, let’s all stand up for Chuck.” It was one of those moments, where Biden goes up and says to Gabby Giffords, “Hey, you know what? You’re like me, you’re a member of the cracked head club.”
Now, there’s no tape on that, either. Apparently cameras don’t follow Biden around. Yeah, of course they follow Biden. Of course there’s tape on this. They’re sequestering it, or suppressing it. They’ve got tape of Biden saying all this stuff. They’re just hiding it. They are not using it. Now, how many times has Dick Cheney asked about calling Pat Leahy an orifice hole? And Cheney, by the way, admitted it, and Cheney told him to do something more than just called him a name. Cheney said you go do something anatomically impossible to Pat Leahy. And of course everybody was outraged, this is unacceptable in Washington, DC, why, how can we expect togetherness and comity and civility when the vice president of the United States is referring to a revered member of the Senate in such horrid ways? And yet here’s Biden out there just setting all kinds of records with the rhetoric.
