    "The only bright spot in this administration is Joe Biden the Mindless Politically Catastrophic Gaff machine !"

    "After a few days in Russia They will probably go to war with us over what old Smoking Joe Biden had to say !"

    Biden's gaffes undercut Obama
    Verbal miscue on Russia spurs damage control


    The Obama White House's vaunted message machine has been thrown off-track with increasing regularity by Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., whose five verbal missteps in the past three months have created obstacles at home and abroad.

    Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was forced Sunday to correct publicly Mr. Biden's characterization of Russia as a crumbling country, a description that infuriated Russian officials and contradicted President Obama's efforts to "reset" relations with the world power.

    "This isn't likely to help convince the Russians we really want to work with them on the foreign-policy issues that matter to us," said Toby Gati, a former top adviser on Russia to President Clinton, from Moscow.

    On Sunday, Mrs. Clinton made clear that the United States sees Russia as "a great power" after Mr. Biden, during a visit to the former Soviet republic of Georgia, said that Russia has "a shrinking population base."

    "They have a withering economy," the vice president said. "They have a banking sector and structure that is not likely to be able to withstand the next 15 years."

    Comments from Mr. Biden have become an increasing distraction for Mr. Obama.

    The vice president has said that he did not want his family traveling on public transportation because of the swine flu, that the administration knows that some of the $787 billion in economic stimulus dollars are going to be "wasted" and that Mr. Obama and his advisers "misread the economy." He also implied that the United States would not stop Israel from attacking Iran if the Jewish state felt Tehran was an "existential threat."

    "Well he at least got that part about Israel correct !"

    “The characteristic of genuine heroism is its persistency. All men have wandering impulses, fits and starts of generosity. But when you have resolved to be great, abide by yourself, and do not weakly try to reconcile yourself with the world. The heroic cannot be the common, nor the common the heroic.”
    Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Freedom is the natural yearning of the human sprit as we were endowed by our creator.

    Something in the back of my mind tells me that Joe's miscues might just be calculated. The WH is full of confusion and discord these days. Even liberal Democrats are alarmed over what's happening.

    Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.
