Flashback: Biden Blames Rape on GOP

So last year, our esteemed vice president made an outrageous remark about rape, blaming it on Republicans, and somehow this did not damage the Democrat brand. Todd Akin is destroying the Republican brand, right? Biden, oh, that’s old Joe. That’s just Joe. Now, I know there are some Democrats who wish Biden would be sent packing, but they are few and they are not afforded a big soapbox. That was October 12th. On October 18th, Biden went to Philadelphia, University of Pennsylvania. After a roundtable with police chiefs from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware, he was discussing the impact of budget cuts on their ability to effectively police their communities. And he was talking about the American Jobs Act, and Biden said it again.

BIDEN: Let me tell you, it’s not temporary when that 911 call comes in, a woman’s being raped, if a cop shows up in time to prevent the rape, it’s not temporary to that woman. It’s not temporary to the guy whose store is being held up and there’s a gun pointed at his head. If a cop shows up and he’s not killed, that’s not temporary to that store owner. Give me a break, temporary.

RUSH: So in Flint, Biden essentially blames Republicans for increased rapes. A week later he goes in to Philadelphia and doubles down on it. Rank, utter stupidity, embarrassingly so, but nobody said that old Joe was damaging the Democrat brand. It’s just old Joe. That’s just Joe. The Democrats seem to be perfectly fine with stupidity at the highest levels of their party.
