Bidenspeak: Another Big (Expletive) Mistake

By Dan Gainor | October 5, 2011 | 11:15am EDT

Vice President Joe Biden isn’t safe to take anywhere – even local radio. Washington’s one-man gaffe fest famously embarrassed himself and President Obama by dropping the F-bomb on national television, telling Obama “this is a big f***ing deal” when the Obamacare bill was signed in March, 2010.

On Tuesday, Biden added another stirring mistake to his resume – on AM Tampa Bay 970 WFLA. Biden was on to talk about the Occupy Wall Street movement. One of the many hardcore lefties pushing this “progressive” protest is former Obama green jobs czar Van Jones. But when Jones’ name came up, Biden denied even knowing who he was. Here’s a good description of the scene:

“Later in his response in talking about the frustration seen in the Tea Party and the Occupy Wall Street Group, Biden said ‘you have on the one end Van Jones’ guys, whoever he is, talking about Wall Street.’  Jack Harris and Tedd Webb stopped him to tell him he had previously been ‘Green Czar’ in the administration.  The VP responded, ‘Oh is that... alright.’”

That story went national and Biden was, once again, embarrassing the administration. But don’t expect the media to make a big deal about this error either. After all, he didn’t misspell "potato."
