    I see biden is going to head the gun control efforts by obama and the marxists. Makes as much sense as h clinton leading the state dept... but then, when everything falls apart there will be no one to blame..right? The Vince foster murder during the clinton's presidency was never resolved...just brushed aside, when does it end?

      What are you talking about? in the 1990s who do you think was the one handling the gun control measures? In the Bill Clinton years, Biden was the one that took care of all that. Out of everybody, he is the most qualified because he has done it before and was successful at it and obviously have experience and knows what he is doing. Do your homework. I don't even like Biden, but you have to know what you are talking about instead of just making up stuff. People like you, make people like me who don't like Biden look bad.

    Why would anyone put Joe in charge of anything? I mean he'll probably just make another gaffe.

    BECAUSE HE IS SMARTER THAN YOU ALL THINK. THE MAN IS WELL RESPECTED AND HE CAN LEAD.

    THE REAL PROBLEM IS IF THE REPUBLITARDS AND THE NRA ARE WILLING TO LISTEN. I'M SURE THEY WOULD RATHER ARM 6 YEAR OLDS WITH BUSHMASTERS THAN GIVE IN TO ANY SENSIBLE GUN CONTROL.

        NO, THERE IS NO 'KING' OF SAYING STUPID THINGS. THE REPUBLITARDS HAVE CLEARLY WON THE MAJORITY ON THAT JUST THIS YEAR ALONE! HE COULD NOT EVEN BEAT MITT ROMNEY, YOUR PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, WITH THAT DISTINCTION. FOR ONCE, ACCEPT YOUR VICTORY AND MOVE ON.

        Excuse me... I don't even know where to start with all of those lies. I can certainly quote Biden if you wish. "...she's- wait- your mom's still alive?"

        AS MUCH I WANT TO AMUSE MYSELF BY DIGGING UP THE COMEDY GOLD OF THE REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARIES, THE ROMNEYISMS, THE BATCRAP CRAZY CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATES, THERE JUST NO POINT IF YOU THINK BIDEN CAN SOMEHOW 'OUT-STUPID' THE LIKES OF SANTORUM, ROMNEY, PERRY, GINGRICH, TODD AKIN, ALLEN WEST. THE LIST GOES ON AND ON.

        YOUR PARTY HAS THE CLEAR MAJORITY WIN ON THIS. TAKE YOUR VICTORY AND SAVOR IT.

        Since when do you just let an issue go? It is because you know Biden has all of the Republican gaffes together

        HERE'S ONE I HAVEN'T HEARD BEFORE.

        "I SAW MY FATHER MARCH WITH MARTIN LUTHER KING." WHICH OF COURSE... NEVER HAPPENED.

        I'M GOING TO MISS THE FOREVER CANDIDATE MITT ROMNEY. OK... MAYBE NOT.

        ALL SILLINESS ASIDE, THERE IS A REALLY GOOD REASON WHY BIDEN IS LEADING THIS EFFORT. HE HAS DONE IT BEFORE.

        Wow, you finally admit how silly your posts are Throbbing member 2012.
        The last real thing Biden was in charge of was making sure the stimulas money was spent correctly. The job he did there was juast a silly as yur posts. He failed at that so we "give" him something else? Only a lib can think Joe Biden can get anything done in this area. Gun sales are up 300%. Once again, your actions have the opposite impact.

        JOE BIDEN HAS EXPERIENCE WITH GUN CONTROL LEGISLATION. STOP BEING SO STUPID JOHN.

        December, that one about Mitt Romney's dad isn't bad at all.

      • Francisco Decastro

        Are you informed at all? Or do you only come here to comment and pretend you know what you are talking about? Who the heck do you think handled gun control in the 1990s and did a pretty good job? Who was the guy in the Bill Clinton years who handled gun control? Who do you think has the experience to do it? Shouldn't you put someone in charge of gun control that HAS in FACT taken charge in gun control before, and was better than anyone so far? Man, it is people like you that makes other people look stupid. If you are going to talk about biden and gun control, it is not your strongest suit. Even all the republicans agree he is the best for gun control. You just make no sense.

        December 21, 2012 at 1:41 pm |
      • Dan B

        First of all, Republicans don't acknowledge that. Second, I was talking about Biden's gaffes, not gun control. And third, you are wrong

    the last ban on automatic weapons was written in part by Joe. He is much smarter than anyone posting here today. That's a fact. But trying to argue with people that call them selves throbbing member is useless . Jut like member is.

      Judy ... compared to you and DEcember 2012 ... Joe Biden is a genius. Compared to the average person ... he's an idiot.

      • Dan B

        Can't say I disagree. Joe Biden isn't exactly Einstein and anyone who thinks that he is can't be brilliant either

        December 20, 2012 at 3:47 pm |
      • jean2009

        I doubt if you even came close to Joe Biden's level of education. A 1961 graduate of Archmere Academy, a graduate of the University of Delaware with two majors: history and political science, and a law decree from Syracuse University College of Law in 1968. You might want research those..

        December 20, 2012 at 5:56 pm |
      • Dan B

        Okay... U Delaware? What is special about that. Double. Major... Okay, my nephews has the same thing in those 2 fields from Yale. Not that those are bad, but they aren't exactly amazing.

      • Dan B

        My nephews and children have done far more than you I'm sure- doctors, lawyer, professors and you know what, you are right... He is the VP. He shouldn't run his mouth with stupid and sometimes racist things

        "Judy ... compared to you and DEcember 2012 ... Joe Biden is a genius. Compared to the average person ... he's an idiot." Says the dumbass.

        Actually, an ass is smarter than you Howard. Biden has done a good job handling gun control in the Bill Clinton years. He can only do better because of experience. All the republicans want him to handle it too, you are so dumb that you are alone on this, maybe with a few other uneducated people.
        By the way, Stupid people do not become the Vice President of the United States, stupid are the people who are jealous. Stupid people are those who actually think that.

      • jean2009

        @Dan I think for starters Archmere Academy might be an excellent clue to the rest of the level of Joe Biden's education, and the fact he has been a adjunct profession of Constitutional Law at Widener University. He was the youngest elected senator in modern history (29), has served on the Senate Judiciary Committee, headed the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, co-chair of the Senate NATO working group, co-chair of the Senate National Security working group. Sometimes, I think it would help to read the person you are talking about biography. I would think as an early stutterer who memorized whole pages of books to speak before a class ..he probably has a photographic memory.
