Biden: It's the GOP's fault the stim bill didn't work

We have got to come up with a nickname for VP Joe Biden along the lines of "Baghdad Bob." You remember Bob, don't you? He was the smiling, mustachioed Iraqi PR flak who kept insisting that Saddam was winning the war - even as American tanks were 5 minutes away from where Bob was standing in Baghdad.

Well, like all Vice Presidents, Biden has been stuck with the job of answering to the American people for Obama's failures. It is a thankless task - one that Biden has performed in a novel fashion:

Whenever in doubt, blame Bush, blame the Republicans, or simply lie through your teeth:

"There's a lot of people at the time argued it was too small," he said. "A lot of people in our administration...even some Republican economists and some Nobel laureates like Paul Krugman, who continues to argue it was too small."

"But, you know," Biden told Tapper, "there was a reality. In order to get what we got passed, we had to find Republican votes. And we found three. And we finally got it passed," Biden said.But if it wasn't for the legislative reality, Biden explained, "I think it would have been bigger. I think it would have been bigger. In fact, what we offered was slightly bigger than that. But the truth of the matter is that the recovery package, everybody's talking about it [like] it's over. The truth is now, we're spending more now this summer than we - I'm calling this...the summer of recovery," the Vice President said.

Methinks the hair plugs in Biden's head must be cutting off circulation to his brain, which has caused a loss of memory as well as exacerbating certain personality traits; like his penchant to act like a jackass.

Obama on February 9, 2009 speaking of the proposed stimulus bill:

"It is the right size, it is the right scope. Broadly speaking it has the right priorities to create jobs that will jump-start our economy and transform it for the 21st century," Obama said of the more than $800 billion bill at a rally in Elkhart, Indiana.

And someone might want to teach our Vice President a little arithmetic. When you have massive majorities in both houses of Congress, you don't need the opposition for anything except to cover your behind when wildly spending $800 billion of the taxpayer's money.

This isn't the first time that Biden has looked the American people in the eye and lied. I doubt it will be the last.
