Good Lord, does this guy ever shut the hell up?
Vice President Joe Biden, well-known for his verbal gaffes, may have finally outdone himself, divulging potentially classified information meant to save the life of a sitting vice president.
According to a report, while recently attending the Gridiron Club dinner in Washington, an annual event where powerful politicians and media elite get a chance to cozy up to one another, Biden told his dinnermates about the existence of a secret bunker under the old U.S. Naval Observatory, which is now the home of the vice president.
Okay, for the record, I think it’s safe to assume that most people figured there were bunkers for the president and the vice president. Of course, having the vice president blab all about it is probably not the smartest thing Crazy Joe has ever done.
The bunker is believed to be the secure, undisclosed location former Vice President Dick Cheney remained under protection in secret after the 9/11 attacks.
Eleanor Clift, Newsweek magazine’s Washington contributing editor, said Biden revealed the location while filling in for President Obama at the dinner, who, along with Grover Cleveland, is the only president to skip the gathering.
Grover Cleveland. I loved him on Sesame Street.
According to the report, Biden “said a young naval officer giving him a tour of the residence showed him the hideaway, which is behind a massive steel door secured by an elaborate lock with a narrow connecting hallway lined with shelves filled with communications equipment.”
Clift continued: “The officer explained that when Cheney was in lock down, this was where his most trusted aides were stationed, an image that Biden conveyed in a way that suggested we shouldn’t be surprised that the policies that emerged were off the wall.” (H/T - FOXNews)
Isn’t it just delicious when someone like Joe Freakin’ Biden tries to say that someone else is incompetent? And as far as the “off the wall policies” issue is concerned, show me anyone in this country who wasn’t freaking out in the days after September 11th.
The problem is that Joe Biden says and does things that are “off the wall” every single day, and we have to deal with his idiocy for another three and a half years.
