Biden ‘Jokes’: GOP Can Arrest You If You Vote

From the Weekly Standard:

Biden: ‘Republicans Have Changed the Law So You Get Arrested If You Do Vote’

DANIEL HALPER | Jul 10, 2012

At a Democratic fundraiser for Washington senator Maria Cantwell in the Seattle Westin hotel last night, Vice President Joe Biden said that "Republicans have changed the law so you get arrested if you do vote," according to a pool report. Biden, the pool report states, was "apparently joking."

But the vice president pointed to states like Pennsylvania and Ohio to back up his point.

Here’s the context, via the pool report:

Recalling a story that Cantwell had told as she was introducing him about crying as a little girl because she thought one of her neighbors had said she wasn’t going to vote and Cantwell feared she would be arrested, Biden said it wasn’t much different today. "Republicans have changed the law so you get arrested if you do vote," he said, apparently joking. He cited efforts in Pennsylvania, Ohio and elsewhere "to essentially try to intimidate people, taking people off the roles."

"This is not your father’s Republican Party," he said

Why should anyone assume that Biden was joking? This is not your father’s Democrat Party.

The Democrats constantly try to whip up their base by fearmongering. (Despite the news media telling us that fearmongering is only done by conservatives, and especially conservative talk radio hosts.)

Besides, isn’t this in effect what Attorney General Eric Holder is telling everyone who will listen to his ravings?

By the way, isn’t Joe Biden from Scranton? And isn’t Scranton now so broke they can only pay their city workers the minimum wage of $7.25 an hour?

Connect the dots.

    The Democrats are now lying straight out, knowing the Lamestream Media won’t call them on it. Obama just told a rally that, “I’ve been outspent before”, a complete lie. He outspent McCain 2 to 1, and in his previous campaigns he steamrolled opponents with legal maneuvering as well as money.

    The Wasington ComPost gave Obama four “Pinocchio Noses” for the lies in a recent campaign ad, blatant falsehoods, but the rest of the media has ignored that.

    We’re seeing a complete breakdown in media ethics. Very dangerous.

    What an absurd statement! If I wasn’t already positive that BiteMe was clinically brain dead it would have shocked me but nothing this butt monkey utters surprises me. It’s a good thing you don’t have to pass a lie detector and IQ test before you can run for office or there wouldn’t be any politicians. Hey, that sounds like a great idea.

    I guess the Dimocraps are scared that in a state like Ohio where you now have to show and ID to vote the fraud is going to be really hard to pull off. A lot of the people they’ve had voting for the last 150 years never even had driver licenses because they died before cars were invented.

    RiverO, When did the bozos in the LSM ever have ethics? Maybe back when my grandparents were kids but never in my life time and I was born in the ’50s.

      Right of the People –
      There was a time when certain media lights had a conscience. Watch Bill O’Reilly when he has former CBS reporter Bernard Goldberg on, a segment called ‘Weekdays With Bernie’. Goldberg has written two bestsellers – ‘Bias’ and ‘Arrogance’ – about modern Liberals and how the media used to work. He woke up to the corruption while at CBS, but knew good people in the business even then. He says it’s out of control now.

      Ronaldus Magnus was elected in an age when there was no Fox News or internet, but somehow his message and character shone through the blackness. William F. Buckley had his own show on PBS, ‘Firing Line’; and Milton Friedman was also given a special multi-part series on PBS.

    I think it was the right thing for vp Joe Biden to warn people who vote they might be arrested. It will save billions to arrest illegals at the polls, than waiting for them to break the law. Detainment camps are being set up to deport illegals voting. Save billions of dollars this way.
