At a signing ceremony for the newly passed Health Care Bill, Joe Biden introduced President Obama with some colorful language. As he passed the podium over to Obama Joe leaned in and “whispered” the phrase “this is a big F@#&@^#% deal”. President Obama nodded and took the podium to address the crowd.
It was unclear and inaudible what President Obama said in response but experts from NASA have scoured the tape and interpreted that Obama responded with “No Sh*t”.
A teen from South Pasadena who founded the no cussing club is asking Vice President Biden to apologize for his language. Biden’s office has not offered comment.
The incident at the podium is confusing to democrats who have long insisted that only Bush republicans commit gaffs during public speaking. Democrats have long held the monopoly on perfect diction and composure while addressing the media. This incident by VP Biden is the first of its kind according to ACORN and MSNBC.
On a contrary note, our staff interviewed some democratic senators. Claire McCaskill commented that “Joe says stupid sh*t all the time…” link
After the podium incident, The Drudge Report posted the teleprompter notes being used at the time of the foul-mouthed exchange. The notes are below.
VP: Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States Barrack Obama
[turn, greet president, shake hand, give euro style cheek touch, remind him this is a big F*cking deal]
Pres: Thank you everybody. [wait for applause to settle before gloating about healthcare]
Joe Biden has not immediately offered any comments on the event and is focused on the health care passing and working with the senate to pass the fixes.
The no cussing advocates inspired by the South Pasadena teen have been relentlessly posting messages on Biden’s facebook page. Two days following the event and reading the account of the South Pasadena teen, Joe Biden decided to respond and posted an apology on the Rachel Maddow blog site. The posting has been since taken down for an unknown reason. Some speculate that Mr. Bidens response was too sincere and lacked the proper tone becoming to a Vice President.
Our staff reporter caught up with Joe Biden late Thursday evening as he was leaving a Georgetown bar and Biden was asked “Is it true you apologized for the F word?”. Biden responded curtly yet with a slight slur in his speech, “yes, I said I was f@$#^# sorry.”
A Biden staffer stepped in a shielded reporters from the entourage and added some context by saying, “KU just lost and this is not a good time for any comments.”
