Kaminsky On "Hypocrite" Biden: "I'd Have Punched Him In The Face"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

In a little over three minutes, CNBC's Gary 'Golden Gloves' Kaminsky not only pointed out the dismal reality of our political class but explained, in his out loud voice - which we assumed was typically suppressed for career-limiting reasons - exactly what he thinks of Joe Biden and what he would have done had be been sat next to him on that table. In saying what we suspect a lot of readers may have felt, Kaminsky exposes the underbelly; as like many of Wall Street who are 'compelled' to give politicians money (Biden has raised the great majority of his funds from financial services firms) hearing the hypocritical "wall-street-vs-main-street" double-talk and 'nasty' laughing and smirking last night made the ex-PM angry. Impressed at Ryan's calm, Kaminsky sums it all up, about Biden: "I would have punched the guy in the face!" - the truth.

I think you're on to something. $1 to punch Biden in the face, $10 to punch Obama in the face. The fiscal problems will be solved within a day.

Of course the government will blow the entire wad the next day and we'll have to start all over again.

$2 to punch Biden, $20 for Obama, $50 for Michelle.

Honestly, how does somebody not laugh at Ryan? They're going to keep Social Security and Medicare spending as is, increase defense spending, and that's 100% of revenues right there, cut taxes, and reduce the deficit. The last of the great stand up comics those two.

Thanks for listening.  I believe the actual plan is to keep the programs the same for those that have already retired as well as people near retirement and then change them for people that can plan for the future.

I guess you like the guys with the plan that either prints fiat to pay or can find someone to borrow the money from for infinity.

Thanks for not listening. How do they cut the deficit if they're going to leave Social Security and Medicare as is for another ten years? Do they plan on getting three terms?

And how many do you think will opt for a voucher and taking their chances on getting a good deal from the insurers when they can just stay of Medicare and get the full, free ride? Do you have any inkling what insurance for a couple in their 60's or 70's will cost?

Thank you for not listening. Ryan said that medicare benefits would be scaled based on income in retirement. those at the bottom of the economic scale would pay nothing. Those more fortunate wold have to pay progressively more. At least Romney / Ryan are proposing something and aren't just throwing shit at their opponents. How anyone can back Obama in this election is beyond me, unless they are getting some form of public assistance and want to protect their meal ticket.

Then why did the Republicans spend so much time on it as soon as they got control of the House 2 years eago?

Why are so many state governments wasting so much time and effort trying to take us back to the 50's as regards women's rights?

What is the obsession with women's bodies these retards have?  These would be Ayotollahs want to peer underneath the skirts of your wives, your daughters, and even your mothers.  Can you say trans-vaginak ultrasound?

I totally agree - it's a diversion.... for some, but an sick perversion for others.  The problem is, the ones practicing diversion are charlatans and panderers, while the true believers are sick, would-be oppressors.

And another thing, if your goal was to convince people here to vote dem, you couldn't have been less effective. If your goal was to shout out frustration, you couldn't have made a greater fool of yourself.

I'm 53 and realized in the 80's that our Congress threw me under the bus when they took such minor action against the collapse of Social Security.  Watching those assholes I knew that I would never retire as my parents did.

I know I will die as I struggle to maintain my job.  Most probably at work.  My alternative death scenario has me a dessicated corpse on the side of a desert road.  I'm screwed and knew it back in the 80's.  But I still want the bullshit promise to my parents honored.  They busted their ass their entire lives and had no clue that what was promised was all a lie.  Worse, they were conditioned to trust in the government and in us. 

Remember, these are the people who used to leave home with the house unlocked, no seat belts in the car, would smack you, or the neighbor's kid, for fucking something up...a whole different, and to most of you, foreign era.

I tired to get my shit together but didn't know how.  Back then there was no internet, no cellphones, no youtube, zerohedge, or even fuckin computers to dig shit out of the ether.  I ws just a standard high school graduate filled with the rah-rah propaganda of my time.  To a degree I still am.

I already expect NO social security, medicare, prescription drug or other government program to come into my life.  I already consider my social security contributions as pass-throughs to my parents.  I don't have a pension because they started doing away with those as I entered the workforce.  I did, however, manage to scrape together $50k in my 401-k, and it is now locked away from me, due to plan rules, until I lose my job (and they may keep it even then) or retire.  I somehow managed to get lucky during 2008 and only lost 20% of the 401-k.

I was born in '59, I'm not a boomer, I'd be the little brother (I think we're classified as the Jones Generation from 'keeping up with the Jones').  I watched those assholes throughout the 60's and 70's and saw the rampant narcissism and callousness of the entire boomer generation.  Being a military brat, at the time, I saw them as alien creatures with pure malice in their hearts.  To my mind, the decent ones were at war.  Now that I'm much older I only see the narcissism and malice of those that never went to war.

My expectations are so low for our economic condition that I have no problem seeing that I will be fucked on retirement.  I think a lot of other people in my cohort saw the hand writing on the wall also.

There's going to be hard, drastic, changes in the so-called entitlements and I will simply be one of the casualties.  I knew that back in the 80's when Congress 'fixed' social security.

Does anyone else remember that the 80's were when we were shell-shocked by the fuckin' Japs kicking our ass on making cars?  Remember looking over a Datsun in comparison to a Chevy?  The 80's are when we surrenderd to the Japs and we started down the road to where we are today.  Even the government statistics for unemployment and inflation got heavily tinkered with back then and we're living with that prodigy today.

What I'm saying is, is this, if you want social security to continue, if you want medicare to continue, if you want stuff for the elderly....then there's an entire generation that is going to be fucked over, mine, in order to insure that the massive wave of retirees doesn't take away your benefits.

Might as well be my generation, at least we could anticipate the uselessness of government in solving real problems.  We witnessed it.

back then we had a few things we don't have now....such as a middle class and a gold standard. don't you think that cutting taxes with those two realities in the mix contributed to the success?

now what do we have? financial engineering and war is our main export, the gap between the rich and poor hasn't been this wide since the great depression and the value of the dollar is plummeting.

things are very different now, and certainly not for the better, and the same old recipe is not gonna fix anything.

Simple stuff for simple minds. 

This is not the 60's....not even close.  The tax rates were not even close, either.  The top individual tax rate in 1960 was 91%.  Now, the fight is over taking it to 38% from 35% (current rate for "earned" incomes over $388,000).

The big tax cuts of the Bush era were supposed to work miracles, and I guess they did....taking a government budget that was in surplus for 4 years and turning it into a trillion dollar deficit IS pretty fucking amazing.

More trickle down bullshit.  It's a joke, and the joke is on us.  Educate yourself (hint - not possible on FOX or Clear Channel radios stations), and you will come to realize that the Treasury has been strip mined by tthe wealthy, and the tax laws are allowing the creation of family dynasty's with vast fortunes at the expense of all of us.  We are becoming more like Europe every year as we sink into peasant status beholden to a ruling aristocracy.

The only way to win the election is tell them what they wanna hear, no matter how big the lies get. This election really comes down to who can promise the most without getting called on it.

If Sasha Cohen ran for President, he would win in a landslide, Just promise the people everything: Clean air, Free energy, retirement at 30, Free medical care, balance budget, and no more wars. Who wouldn't vote for all those promises? LOL!

Surprised to see this article about him I rarely see him criticized at all though it then back pedals and liken's him to someone's sweet buy creepy father I think the title say's it all The joke's on us...

 

The joke’s on us: how Joe Biden became America’s favorite punch line

snip

In law school in the’60s, where he graduated near the bottom of his class, Biden indeed plagiarized a law review article for a class paper. In the ’80s, he stole other politicians’ work for political speeches. When he was caught, he played dumb about the mechanics of citation—classic plagiarist move.

Decades later, the plagiarism scandals forgotten, Biden was instead lampooned as a gaffe machine—a Tourettesy type short on self-control. Jimmy Fallon riffed on this iteration of Old Parody Biden: "Joe Biden accidentally revealed the location of the Vice President's top secret bunker. The guy can't help it. But he did apologize. He said: 'I am so sorry for the mistake. The launch code is 85334. It will never happen again. It will never happen again. My Gmail password is robot23. What am I doing? The house key is under the plant near the doorstep.'"

This line of jokes came after Biden, during the beginning of his presidential campaign in 2007, unselfconsciously called Barack Obama “the first mainstream African American”—presidential candidate, presumably—“who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.” 

Calling a black person “articulate” was memorably identified as weird and racist by Chris Rock in 1996. The “bright and clean” stuff was even more disturbing. And Biden—not Parody Biden—once told an Indian American, with a straight face, “You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.” He added, “I’m not joking.”

This version of Biden recently re-emerged when he told supporters in Virginia, some of them black, that Mitt Romney “is going to put y’all back in chains.” The “y’all” was disgraceful, as far as this listener is concerned. After this tweaked-out racism, Matt Latimer wrote in The Daily Beast thatBiden should step down as vice president—and that he absolutely would be forced to, were he a Republican.

Too bad he can't run on his record as Governor.  If he did, he would lose his base supporters.

Traditionally, the veep was a worthless hack with nothing going for him except partisan loyalty.  In the last administration, the Repubs mixed it up by putting the real President in the veep seat and calling the worthless hack "Mr. President."

But progress advances as inevitably as rust.

So for this current administration, the Dems are trying a complete non-entity as President AND a worthless hack as veep.

Pretty soon we'll be able to use a sack of flour and a labrador puppy.  It'll save a ton on security, which is going to be important after a few decades of sequestration and such.
