HA - Rudy Guiliani thinks Biden is STUPID

The Fix blog on the Washington Post site this morning talked about a speech yesterday by Vice-President Joe Biden:

"Campaigning in southern Virginia on Tuesday, Vice President Biden told an audience that Mitt Romney’s approach to regulating the financial industry will “put y’all back in chains,” a remark that triggered a flurry of Republican criticism, including a sharp rebuke from the presumptive GOP presidential nominee.


‎“I got a message for them,” Biden said. “If you want to know what’s outrageous, it’s their policies and the effects of their policies on middle-class America. That’s what’s outrageous.”

Biden is exactly right. It kills me, that ANY Republican - after participating in the most DIVISIVE, PARTISAN session of Congress EVER - has the balls to call what Biden said divisive. Republicans in the House have refused to pass any legislation that would improve the economy and weaken their anti-Obama position. Romney's tax plan explicitly includes tax cuts for the rich. {According to Fox News, an August 1 study released by the Tax Policy Center projects that "taxpayers making more than $1 million would see tax cuts averaging $175,000. Those making between $75,000 and $100,000 would see an average tax cut of $1,800. And those making under $30,000 would see an average increase of $130, according to the report."}

Then again, the chief Republican strategy seems to be to repeat lies often enough that they become perceived as truth

Creepy Republican and former mayor of New York Rudy Guiliani seized on Biden's comment for another round in their on-going adversarial relationship (maybe better characterized as a spat). Here is the video:

Looking at the video, how can you conceivably categorize Biden as stupid? He has survived on his wits for long enough in Washington. Sure, he has Sarah Palin's tendency for verbal gaffes, but he also has a keen intellect to along with it. Get over yourself, Rudy.
