“The crowd was noticeably more diverse than the one that greeted [Paul] Ryan two weeks ago,” notes Tom McNiff, managing editor of the Ocala Star Banner, “Unlike Ryan’s event, the Biden crowd featured a significant number of black and Hispanic supporters.”
McNiff was obviously too busy racial profiling the vice presidential campaign rallies to notice a much more significant difference between the Ryan/Biden gatherings: 1,150 people came to see Biden … an estimated 5,000 were on hand to welcome Paul Ryan to this little corner of sunny Florida.
Another contrast between the two candidates was that Paul Ryan knew he was in Florida. Biden, on the other hand, thought he was in Ohio – criticizing a Mitt Romney attack ad for “trying to scare the living be-devil” out of the state’s residents. “The Cleveland Plain Dealer – one of the major newspapers in this state – said ‘it’s a masterpiece in misdirection,’” said Biden.
The misdirection appears to be all Biden’s. He obviously misread his road map, made a wrong turn and drove 885 miles out of his way.
According to the U.S. Army’s Combating Terrorism Center, letters captured from Osama bin Laden’s Pakistan compound revealed that the Al Qaeda leader wanted his followers to assassinate President Obama so the “utterly unprepared” Joe Biden would become leader of the free world.
So, the next time you see brainless Joe on T.V., remember that Obama’s gaffe-prone second banana remains the dead bin Laden’s secret weapon against America.
That ought to scare the living be-devil out of you.
