Veep Gives John Lennon-esque Rant at Florida High School Graduation..
Yes - just about everytime we post on Joe Biden, we use a picture of Sam the Eagle from The Muppet Show. With the exception of Mitt Romney's uncanny resemblance to Guy Smiley, Biden's similarity to Sam is startling. Of course, where Sam is dignified, and often walking around going 'This is an Outrage!!', Biden walks around saying dumb things - and everyone else says that it's an outrage... Every wonder why NO ONE in Pennsylvania claims him for their own? Now you know...
You have to admit, the guy is a million laughs for Republicans. It's like retribution for all the crap Democrats gave us for Dick Cheney.... Every week, it's something new. This week's chuckle via VP Biden was a commencement speech he gave at a Florida High School. Yes - Barack Obama gets Columbia University, Biden gets high school outside Miami. Hell, even we did better than that. Once, we gave the commencement at the Rocco Clubbo Driver Education School commencement. That is until they realize we just jumped on stage. Still, i had the grads in the palm of my hand for those 14 seconds...
So, what do you do when you speak to High Schoolers? Either of two things: you speak the truth and bore them to death. Or, you fill their heads with wild-eyed, non-achievable dreams, with no real plan to get them there - all with a Liberal Slant. To make it better, you use words reminiscent of John Lennon's imagine. Maybe it was just us, but you can almost hear the white piano in the background as he's saying this.....
That's my simple advice to you today: Imagine,” Biden said. “Imagine the progress you will see and achieve in your lifetime. Imagine the breakthroughs that are on the horizon and just beyond it.
“Imagine by the time you’re in the position to buy your first home, putting a roof of solar shingles that will cost no more than today’s ordinary shingles, will be able to power your home, heating, cooling, running appliances at a fraction of the cost your parents pay today,”
Imagine a day, when in your, doctors are able to regenerate entire body parts and limbs that have been damaged and lost, not only saving tens of thousands of lives, but restoring the thousands of our Iraq and Afghan veterans coming back in need of prostheses, so they will be able to live a full and ambulatory life.”
“Imagine a world in which hunger is vanquished by crops that don’t depend on the soil, water or fertilizer, or pesticides to thrive; they’re just around the corner,”
“Imagine famine being a memory and with it the end of so much war and conflict that plagues so many parts of the world.”
“Imagine a world in which nations no longer depend on nuclear weapons for their defense and imagine the day when the lightweight materials, cleaner fuels, advanced engines simultaneously make our air cleaner allowing us to go the equivalent of hundreds of miles to the gallon and maybe most importantly freeing us from our dependence on foreign oil and all that entails foreign nation.”
“And imagine when your senior spots are all charging stations, powering up cars that can go hundreds of miles on a single charge,”
Da-dum, Da-Dum, Da-Dum,Da-Dum, Da Da-Dum, Da-Dum, Da-Dum... Da-da-da! Yoko would be proud, and we expect an endorsement any day from her now.... I read on one of the county Facebook pages that Biden's been so dumb, many Dems are trying to recruit Hillary Clinton to be the VP choice this time around. Yeah, it's been whispered since the 2008 Dem Convention, that won't happen. Why? Because Biden will do anything the Obama Administation says to keep the slot - no matter how silly. Did you ever hear Biden talk like this when he was a Senator? We never did.
It's a lot like the movie That Thing You Do, where Tom Hanks tells the singer from The Wonders he has to record all the stuff he doesn't want to, including doing their one hit in Spanish. Well, he had his own answer ... But Joe Biden sure isn't going to quit. He's riding this one to the end - no matter how many tacky speeches he has to give. At least maybe he could have tried 'Whatever Gets You Through the Night' - That sax solo is awesome.....
