Honest Joe strikes again! Biden: ‘Yes, we do want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars’

Oh, yes, he did.

Joe “the gift that keeps giving” appeared at a rally in Iowa today. And this happened.

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_yc2zBmOmNE&w=560&h=315]

“Obama and Biden want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars. Guess what? Yes, we do in one regard,” says Biden.

Our aching sides won’t last through November! Twitter users are also wheezing with giggles and loving unleashed Joe.

Moron? Or Honest Joe?

Perhaps we should embrace the power of “and.”

We smell more “Honest Joe” T-shirt sales!


The new “Honest Joe” gear is here!

    • ZoriahShepard

      Biden always leaves me confounded and confused. “Did he really just say that?” Why yes. Yes he did.

      Not necessarily — just absurdly high taxes.

        absurd is not strong enough

  • Mike Simpson

    “They gonna put y’all (the ‘rich’) back in CHAAAIIINS!”

    Or is it “Hope and Chains?”

  • Rush_Babe

    Yes, Biden is really that stupid.

  • disappearing moderate

    Tell it, brother! And people mock me for finding Joe delightful. It’s like some real life version of the Jim Carrey film Liar, Liar. Joe is under some not so wicked spell and can’t refrain from telling the truth.

  • stuckinIL4now

    Can’t wait to hear Paul Ryan jump all over that one, amongst other Joekisms, in next Thursday’s veep debate.

  • http://www.facebook.com/kent.vig Kent Vig

    Can we keep Joe around even if Romney wins? It’s pure entertainment

    • Sam G Jr

      Maybe he can get his own reality show on OWN after the election!!

    They will spin it that it was only for rich. Wouldn’t work because Bush taxes affected everyone who pays taxes, including middle class. Otherwise there is no trillion dollars raise with only millionaires.

    • wnddll

      If the government took 100% of the entire nation’s income it wouldn’t be even close to a trillion dollars…

      How much is a trillion?
      1 million seconds is 11 1/2 days
      1 billion seconds is 32 years
      1 trillion seconds is 32,000 years

      There were two sets of tax cuts, and they only want to let the ones applying to the wealthy expire.

      • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

        Without the wealthy we wouldn’t have a lot of the businesses we have now..and without them we wouldn’t have jobs, etc.

      • journogal

        What do you have against the wealthy? Why should they pay more? What makes you think you deserve anything from their hard work?

    Anyone else excited for the VP debate?

      More than I’m excited for college football – and that is saying a lot.

    • journogal

      It will probably be the most highly watched VP debate in history. Wonder what kind of drinking game will be created for it?

        If you go only by Biden gaffs we’ll all be hammered 15 minutes in…

          Perhaps the first 5 minutes…

    Epic Fail is the only catch phrase left for the Left when describing J. Biden.

  • Toqin

    This is how I see it & I’m absolutely broke:
    If they pay their FAIR share of taxes, and then making them pay more in taxes, how is that fair? it’s discriminating and isn’t it unAmerican?

  • strat77

    So any small business owner making more than $200K is now “super wealthy”?! Can’t wait for the VP debate.

  • Discontentwliars

    Get ready you rich business owners that make over $250K per year. Your taxes will be going up. You might need to lay off a couple more people, but that is what is called fair where Joe comes from. Don’t we have anyone in Washington that knows how this works? What are they teaching people in schools ? BTW – Business doesn’t owe you a job. You trade your expertise to someone that will pay you for it. Mutual regard for what you have to offer, and they need. I do believe business has a better opportunity, because they run a business that makes a profit based on products sucess and 100% of other peoples work (employess), while an empolyee only gets the benefit of 100% of 1 persons work. The business does take on the risks of product failure, absent employees, insurance and injuries, meeting schedules, contracts, taxes, vacations, raises. Everyone involved workes hard, the risk/reward is hard to measure, since 4/5 business fail (employer responsible). I don’t beilieve Bidon has a clue.

  • cscape

    a trillion dollars?……. that really puts the lie to what Obama has in mind – you couldn’t raise that much if you confiscated 100% of the 1%ers earnings for 1 year!

    • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

      I don’t think it’s a lie so much as it is poor math.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/7BG44DBU5IHJQ5ZAYWNT3RSPBM Jack Offelday

    My God, Joe Biden is dumb. And yet, perpetually angry. The fact that this buffoon, “Sheriff Joe”, was watching over the stimulus money would be laughable if it weren’t so deplorable.

  • http://twitter.com/KariOBrien12 Kari OBrien

    I don’t get Joe??? Is he campaigning for Romney or Obama? Paul is going to clean his clock!

  • grais

    After last night, I’d’ve thought they’d keep him muzzled & caged at least until the weekend.

  • Joshua Johnson

    An old favorite of mine “He couldn’t dump water out of a boot with instructions on the heel” really applies to this guy…

  • stillinthe60s

    Joe Biden still on the ticket. Best evidence of Obama’s over confidence or his desire to lose this election cause the jobs just too tough?

  • stuckinIL4now

    Anyone see the tweets from Jennifer Jacobs of the Des Moines Register at this campaign appearance in Council Bluffs, IA today? Apparently for awhile the press was sequestered in a back corner, not allowed to speak to anyone in the crowd or go to the bathroom without a campaign escort, but the crowd was able to move about freely. They eventually lifted the restrictions on reporters but maybe that was after Biden raised the trillion in taxes cuz they didn’t want the press to see it.

  • John Beam

    I’m beginning to think that Biden is actually the smart one, and is purposely trying to derail his running-mate, because he realized that HE’S the moron, and he doesn’t want America to go down in flames.

    …yeah, that’s pretty unlikely…never mind…

  • BeeKaaay

    Will the RINOpublican party broadcast this to 100 channels on TV? NAAAAAH.

  • JoH113

    LOL Our aching sides can’t take it? Maybe…but keep ’em coming, Joe! I want a six pack! :oD

    I would bet O is sorry he didn’t drop Biden when he had the chance. Of course who would he have selected (and accepted), since Shrillary turned him down flat.

    They want to get the $trillion from the rich- and when they come up short which they will because the rich are not stupid and will know how to avoid these taxes, and/or by draining the money from the job creators there will be way less revenue – and they have already spent the money with their pie in the sky budgets and unrealistic revenue predictions- guess who is going to pay the bill-us and are children and grandchildren and on and on until we put an end to this nonsense. The only way to do that is term limits and a balanced budget amendment. And while we are at it we should probably include iron clad rules for how business is conducted in the house and the senate because these criminals can not be trusted under any circumstances.
