Joe Biden: "We Are Off and Running, But It Will Get Worse!"

Joe Biden: "We Are Off and Running, But It Will Get Worse!"

By John Lillpop

For just over $600,000 a year, the American people have secured the services of a president and vice president tandem that is virtually indistinguishable from some of the greatest heroes and stars coming out of Hollywood these days.

Think about it: In President Barack Obama, America has employed the Dark Knight as Commander-in-chief and for only $400,000 a year.

With Joe Biden hanging out around the White House, we the people get the Joker for the rock-bottom price of $208,100 a year.

Such a deal, already!

Vice President Biden showed why his Secret Service code name is King Faux Pas with this dilly:

"We`re off and running, but its going to get worse before it gets better," Biden said.

Someone should have asked King Faux Pas this obvious follow up question: "Why not stop running until you are sure that you are headed in the right direction and not making things worse by running the wrong way?"

Of course, objective journalists in the liberal media would never get so cheeky with a major disciple of the new age Messiah. Doing so would be offensive and probably racist as well.

Excerpts from the report at Yahoonews (Reference 1):

WASHINGTON " The White House warned Sunday that the country could face a long and painful financial recovery, even with major government intervention to stimulate the economy and save financial institutions.

"We`re off and running, but it`s going to get worse before it gets better," said Vice President Joe Biden, taking the lead on a theme echoed by other Democratic officials on the Sunday talk shows.

"At the end of the Obama administration`s first week, the party in power at both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue sought to lower expectations for a quick fix despite legislation expected to pass by next month that would pump billions of dollars into the economy. Democrats also opened the door for even more government aid to struggling banks beyond the $700 billion bailout already in the pipeline."

"These problems weren`t made in a day or a week or a month or even a year, and they`re not going to get solved that fast," said Lawrence Summers, a top economic adviser to Obama. "So even as we move to be as rapid as we can in jolting the economy and giving it the push forward it needs, we also have to be mindful of having the right kind of plan that will carry us forward over time."

"Republicans want the recovery package tilted more toward tax cuts and have questioned whether government spending programs will revive the economy in the short-term.

"I just think there`s a lot of slow-moving government spending in this program that won`t work," House Republican leader John Boehner of Ohio said. "We can`t borrow and spend our way back to prosperity."

Clearly, John Boehner has not seen the Dark Knight and is unaware of the magical powers that Barack Obama brings to the Oval Office.

Or to quote an intellectual, who works for Obama as an ACORN volunteer, "YES WE CAN!"
