Quotational Therapy: Part 134 -- Joe Biden Blames Everything On Gingrich.


Republicans taking over Congress in 1994 led to pretty much everything bad over the past several years, according to Delaware Senator Joseph Biden.

Check out this eye-popper of a quotation:

"I would argue, since 1994 with the Gingrich revolution, just take a look at Iraq, Venezuela, Katrina, what's gone down at Virginia Tech, Darfur, Imus. Take a look. This didn't happen accidentally, all these things."

- Senator Joe Biden, speaking before Al Sharpton's National Action Network.

The picture alone speaks volumes about the good Reverend's renewed stature in the Democratic Party:


This quote, incidentally, is very difficult to find in media articles, even as swarms of media gathered around Sharpton's organization in the wake of the Don Imus incident.

How could that be?

Why would our reliable and trustworthy media obfuscate and omit this particular "hate speech"?

They just wouldn't do that, so there must be some mistake.

And let's not act like Biden was the only one in attendance last Thursday. All the major Democrats showed up to preach at the pulpit of the First Sharpton Church.

Hillary Clinton threw this unintentionally hilarious bit out there:

"When I walk into the oval office in January 2009 I’m afraid I’m going to lift up the rug and find so much stuff under there....what is it that we have to clean up after people, but this is not just picking socks up off the floor,” Clinton said.

Does she not remember her husband's administration? Or the way they left the White House completely trashed-- literally trashed-- when they left office?

Previous Quotational Therapy Session:

Reagan To Parliament.

The right quote can be therapeutic, so tune in to WILLisms.com for quotational therapy on Monday and Friday.

Wow! That is really nervey of hillary to mention the Oval Office, with all the memories we all have of the Clinton Adminisreation left us...

Posted by: zsa zsa at April 23, 2007 12:35 PM

HotAir had a good one:

MEMO TO HILLARY: When your name is “Clinton”, and you attack the ethics of the Bush administration…


Posted by: Ken McCracken at April 23, 2007 01:04 PM

She is depending on convenient forgetfulness on the part of her supporters. She may be right, sadly.

Biden's comment is something you expect from some old drunk. No logical tie-ins, just the prejudicial atmosphere.

Posted by: Assistant Village Idiot at April 23, 2007 05:38 PM

That is a funny quote by Hillary, but that they trashed the White House is a myth.

Posted by: andrew at April 23, 2007 06:15 PM

Huh?...Andrew, you are kidding. Aren't you?

Posted by: zsa zsa at April 23, 2007 07:22 PM

You mean things like taking all the "w"'s off of all the computer keyboards? Stealing stuff?

Somehow, I get the feeling these fourth-rate political turds are going to bump up against the 2008 election and realize George Bush is not running.

Somehow, I get the feeling the American public, despite the protestations of the democrat leadership, will realize that Islamnist terrorists really want to kill us and our children.

Somehow, I am beginning to realize P.T.Barnum had a good point, if, in fact, he was not right.

Let's face it, one can't point to a single Republican accomplishment. It's as if the GOP has the reverse Midas touch--everything they touch turns to crap.

Yes, our last last democratically-elected President had an affair. Horrors. He also presided over the best economy in the last 60 years. He had an effective foreign policy. And he was a Predident that over 60% of the electorate thought was doing a good job. Even today, President Clinton is regarded with awe, respect and enthusiasm here and abroad.

Contrast that to your hero.

You are a the hemorrhoid on the asshole that is the far left and the democrat party.

Posted by: Eneils Bailey at April 24, 2007 05:29 PM

I see I touched a nerve with the aptly-named Eneils.

Posted by: Jadegold at April 24, 2007 05:36 PM



You have not touched a nerve or upset me in the least. I knew what you were when you first entered here, dribbling your mindless excrement.

I see you are not a student of history either.

Posted by: Eneils Bailey at April 24, 2007 05:51 PM


I could chew you up before breakfast, have you crapped out by noon, and you would have never realized anyone had been shitting you.

Saw over at another site on the net, someone called you a jerk-off.

Are you Russian?

Jade, When we took our little vacation from history. We needed a leader who could help us see the danger that many Americans did not have the inclination or the tools to see. Instead we warred against our enemies outside Waco and on Ruby Ridge. AND transferred technology to Red China allowing them to drop IBMs anywhere in North America, and which they have now sold to other unfriendly countries. I am glad he was able to coast on the Reagan economy since the Congress kept spending in check and didn't raise taxes too much. (still hurt my family though). Too bad about the technology bubble and its bursting. Bill was not a good leader, but he was a good ol' boy for sure.

My goodness, Eneils--the little cracker from SC--is upset. I fear I have upset his delicate constitution.

Or perhaps he gets his thrills about talking about his bowel movements.

"Eneils--the little cracker from SC--is upset. I fear I have upset his delicate constitution."

Sure, I am a cracker from SC, and proud of it, and my constitution never changes, never to get upset by the passing stenches of of your nonsensical illiteracy.

"Or perhaps he gets his thrills about talking about his bowel movements."

Yeah, a good crap in the morning is great. Followed by a good cup of coffee, what a way to start the day.

Your insufferable persistence of failure is only exceeded by your absolute collapse of intellectual capabilities.

May I suggest the "Daily Kos" or the "Democratic Underground" to get someone to agree with you and support your lackluster performance as a person deemed qualified to render a suggestion to anyone older than four years.

Posted by: Eneils Bailey at April 25, 2007 07:14 PM


By the way, where are you from?

Cuba, Russia, China, North Korea?

Just curious, does not make a lot of difference. Idiots are idiots, no matter where they are from.

Posted by: Eneils Bailey at April 25, 2007 07:18 PM


I agree with you.

Bill Clinton was likable "good ole boy," not fitting to be the leader of the free world. Other descriptions might include criminal, draft-dodger, horn dog, panderer, liar, ex-lawyer(dis-barred because of lying to the a federal grand jury), and my favorite, although not a federal crime, being consumed by the the desire to let his pecker rule the free world.

Let's face it, one can't point to a single Republican accomplishment. It's as if the GOP has the reverse Midas touch--everything they touch turns to crap.

Well let's see, that's about right, if you ignore:

Bush the Younger pulling our economy out of a recession, something that Mr. Bill never did. (The GDP grew by about a 4% rate during the second half of 1992.)

The removal of the Taliban (the most misogynist regime on the planet) from power in Afghanistan.

The removal of Saddam Hussein from power, resulting in him becoming one of the few tyrants in recent history to actually be punished for his tyranny. (Mao, Stalin and Pol Pot died in their sleep. Hitler killed himself. Milosevic died awaiting trial.)

A reduction in the growth of U.S. emissions of CO2 (which I learned about right here at Willisms).

Bush the Elder's successful war to liberate Kuwait from Saddam.

Reagan's (and Thatcher's, Walesa's, etc.) victory in the Cold War, and the resulting implosion of the Soviet Union.

Reagan's revitalization of the economy after 4 years of Carter's stagflation, and the end of the "energy crisis", which was largely exacerbated by Carter's price controls.

Various provisions of the Contract With America, such as getting Congress to obey its own laws. During Mr. Bill's re-nomination acceptance speech at the 1996 Democratic convention, he listed seven provisions of the Contract among the accomplishments of his administration. Thus, while many Dems badmouthed the Contract, Mr. Bill was taking credit for some of its positive results, showing an ego worthy of Fred Flintstone.
("Great idea Barney. I'm glad I thought of it.")

Hmmm. The spaces between ppgs appeared in the post, but not the preview. Looks like I'll never understand Big Al's invention ;>)
