 Embarrassed

Biden exposed: Book claims veep enjoys swimming in the nude
Published August 01, 2014
FoxNews.com

It's Biden in the buff.

A forthcoming book that claims to give a behind-the-scenes look at the people the Secret Service protects reportedly airs some tantalizing details about Vice President Biden's swimming habits.

According to a New York Daily News account of the book, Secret Service agents say Biden likes to swim nude -- to the chagrin of some in his detail.

"Agents say that, whether at the vice president's residence or at his home in Delaware, Biden has a habit of swimming in his pool nude," journalist and author Ronald Kessler reportedly writes in "The First Family Detail," due to come out next week. "Female Secret Service agents find that offensive."

Scandalous tidbits from the book -- including about the Clintons -- have been dripping out over the past several weeks, in the lead-up to the release. According to the Daily News, Biden's skinny-dipping isn't the only thing agents complain about.

They also reportedly worry that the vice president puts too many restrictions on his detail when he's in Delaware, keeping them from interfering with his neighbors. One unnamed agent reportedly voiced security concerns about this practice.

Kessler claimed that the Biden detail is considered the second-worst job in the Secret Service, next to the Hillary Clinton detail.

Kessler used to work for The Washington Post, and later went to work for the conservative site Newsmax. He has written extensively about the Secret Service, and broke the story in 2012 about the prostitution scandal involving agents during a presidential visit to Colombia.

His books, though, have been trashed by Democrats for their sometimes-sensational elements, attributed to anonymous sources.

Joe Biden Apologizes For 'Poor Choice Of Words' After Making Reference To 'Shylocks'
HUNTER WALKER
SEP. 17, 2014

Vice President Joe Biden issued a statement to Business Insider on Wednesday apologizing for his "poor choice" of words after a comment he made about "shylocks" drew criticism from Anti-Defamation League National Director Abraham Foxman.

Foxman noted the expression "shylocks" has roots in "the medieval stereotype about Jews and remains an offensive characterization to this day." At the same time, Foxman also complimented the vice president as "friendly to the Jewish community" and an "open and tolerant individual."

In his statement, Biden said Foxman was "correct" in his assessment.

“Abe Foxman has been a friend and advisor of mine for a long time. He’s correct, it was a poor choice of words, particularly as he said coming from ‘someone as friendly to the Jewish community and open and tolerant an individual as is Vice President Joe Biden.’ He’s right,” Biden said.

Biden made the remark during a speech to the Legal Services Corporation on Tuesday in which he criticized those who would take advantage of military service members with "bad loans" as "Shylocks who took advantage of these women and men while overseas."

Biden continues to apologize; first Turkey, now UAE
BY ROY GUTMAN
McClatchy Foreign Staff
October 5, 2014

ISTANBUL — Vice President Joe Biden apologized to the United Arab Emirates Sunday for charging that the oil-rich ally had been supporting al Qaida and other jihadi groups in Syria's internal war, his second apology in as many days to a key participant in the U.S.-led coalition against Islamic State extremists.

The White House said Biden telephoned Crown Prince Mohamed bin Zayed of Abu Dhabi to say that his recent remarks “regarding the early stages” of the conflict in Syria “were not meant to imply that the Emirates had facilitated or supported” the Islamic State, al Qaida or other extremist groups in Syria.

But his apology, one day after expressing similar regrets to Turkey, left open whether the Emirates had supported the rise of al Qaida during the early stages of the war in Syria.

Biden was answering questions at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government Thursday when he veered off the official talking points to declare, “Our allies in the region were our largest problem” in preventing the spread of al Qaida in Syria.

“The Saudis, the Emiratis; what were they doing?” he said. “They were so determined to take down (Syrian President Bashar) Assad and have a proxy Sunni-Shia war, they poured hundreds of millions of dollars and thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad. Except that the people who were being supplied were (Jabhat) al Nusra and al Qaida, and the extremist elements of jihadis coming from other parts of the world.”

The UAE foreign minister, Anwar Gargash, Sunday demanded a formal clarification, saying that Biden’s remarks were “far from the truth” and gave a “negative and inaccurate impression.” The UAE’s approach to counter-terrorism “recognizes the extent of the danger posed by terrorism to the region and to its people,” he said

Biden raised ire in Turkey by quoting from President Recep Tayyip Erdogan during their meeting during the U.N. General Assembly.

“President Erdogan told me, ‘You were right. We let too many people through. So we’re trying to seal the border,’” Biden quoted him as saying.

Erdogan retorted that Turkey had not provided “even the smallest amount of support” to any terrorist organization. As for his reputed confession, he said: “I never admitted any mistake, nor did we tell them that they 'were right' during my visit to the U.S.” And he said if Biden didn’t apologize, “then he will be history for me.”

In his apology to Erdogan, as relayed by the White House, the vice president did not retract the quotation he attributed to the Turkish leader. Instead, he “apologized for any implication that Turkey or other Allies and partners in the region had intentionally supplied or facilitated the growth of ISIL or other violent extremists in Syria.”

ISIL is one of several acronyms used to identify the group known as the Islamic State.

The other two countries Biden named were Saudi Arabia, which is about to host the U.S.-funded training of thousands of Syrian rebel fighters, and Qatar, which houses a covert CIA training facility for Syrian rebels.

Biden said Saudi Arabia “has stopped the funding” going to extremists in Syria, and the Qataris “have cut off their support for the most extreme elements of the terrorist organizations.” Neither country has publicly demanded an apology so far.

Although senior U.S. officials have hinted that at least one Gulf country had been supporting Jabhat al Nusra, the Al Qaida-backed militia in Syria, no one had named the countries in a public forum until Biden. His remarks raised a number of questions: what form did the aid take, how long did it continue and what impact did it have on fighting on the ground?

Biden also took aim at Saudi Arabia’s human rights record. He compared the collaboration with Riyadh to World War II, when the United States and Britain made common cause with the Soviet Union under dictator Joseph Stalin. “We knew Stalin was no-good SOB from the beginning,“ Biden said, answering a student’s question about Saudi human rights practices. “But there is a thing called self-interest.”

He said the U.S. criticized the Saudi practice of beheading criminals and not granting equality to women.

“We have not remained silent with Saudi Arabia,” he said. ”I have certainly not been silent with Saudi Arabia.”

Nine Apologies Biden Owes Americans
by KEITH KOFFLER on OCTOBER 6, 2014

In recent days, Vice President Biden has issued apologies to the no doubt unimpeachably honorable and suitably aggrieved leaders of Turkey and the United Arab Emirates for insulting them by saying they had supported Islamists.

While Biden expressing serial regrets, I wonder, what if the thought occurred to him to apologize to the American people? Not for silly gaffes or little blunders, but for professional-league, first-class outrages that are unacceptable coming from a vice president, even this one.

He might say . . .

1. I am sorry for telling an audience of African Americans during the campaign that Mitt Romney was “going to put you all back in chains.”

2. I am sorry for mocking Republican vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan during the debate with constant, staged, laughter. Not only was the giggling insulting, nasty and inappropriate, it was undignified for a vice president and even scarily odd.

3. I am sorry for opposing the special forces raid that took out Osama Bin Laden. Thank God the president didn’t take my advice.

4. I am sorry for revealing that the Navy SEALs killed Bin Laden.

5. I am sorry for making an adjusted gross income of $385,072 in 2012 and giving only 1.9 percent of it to charity, a percentage similar to the minuscule amounts I had given in the past.

6. I am sorry for telling Americans to walk out on their balconies and fire a double barrel shotgun into the air to scare off a potential intruder. It’s a felony in many states and someone was actually arrested for taking my advice.

7. I am sorry for comparing Republicans during the 2012 campaign to the Know Nothing Party, a xenophobic and sometimes violently anti-Catholic and anti-immigrant movement that existed during the 1850s.

8. I am sorry for excusing the Chinese for their barbaric “one child policy,” which is not only a oppressive, totalitarian measure but one that has resulted in the death of little girls.

9. I am sorry for saying in 2010 that President Obama’s Iraq policy could go down as one of Obama’s “great achievements.” It wasn’t his achievement, it was Bush’s, and he was actually in the process of screwing it up.

VP Joe Biden Has Factual Revelation and Joins Middle Class Bashing of Obama
BY MICHAEL HAUSAM (2 DAYS AGO) | EDITOR'S CHOICE, NATION, POLITICS

In Iowa, during a stump speech for behind-in-the-polls Democrat Senate candidate Bruce Braley, Vice President Joe Biden apparently neglected to recall who has been in charge of the country for the last six years.

The takeaway:

According to all the statistics, all the economic policy institutes, and all these groups that are outside experts in the economy, the gross domestic product means the nation grew over the last ten years by over 25 percent, and productivity went up over 30 percent.

But middle class wages went up by only 14 cents. Hear me? 14 cents. You know it. You don’t have to know the number, but you know. The middle class has been left behind.
Indeed.

Under this President, income inequality has actually increased. The overwhelming majority of income gains under Obama have been to the top 1% of earners. And this is despite an almost constant drumbeat from the administration against income inequality.

Furthermore, even as he touts the GDP gain of 25% over the last ten years, that averages a measly 2.5% per year. That’s just barely above the population growth rate and certainly not a sign of success. For example, under Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton, GDP growth averaged 3.8%.

The middle class has certainly been left behind. Now, Middle Class Joe, show us what you can do about it.
