Biden stands by remarks: wishes GOP knew what it is like to be raped

Vice President Joe Biden stands by his remarks that he made during a speech on Tuesday that "murder will continue to rise, rape will continue to rise, crime will continue to rise" if GOP doesn't pass Obama's jobs plan.

The evidence for this claim is virtually non-existant. If Biden is trying to say there is a correlation between Jobs creation and and peaceful streets, He shouldn't be targeting Republicans, who also have a Jobs Plan. (Download here free and read for yourself).

And if one unfounded claim isn't enough, he went even further to wish that Republicans knew what it was like to have been raped and robbed. "I wish that they had some notion of what it was like to be on the other side of the gun, or (to have) a 200-pound man standing over you telling you to submit."

First of all: WAY OVER THE LINE! Are you kidding me!?! As I'm sure many will agree, you should never even come close to implying that you wish rape on anyone. ever.

Secondly: What happened to 'civility of speech?' In the same way Jimmy Hoffa made remarks about "taking out those Tea Party SOB's", Democrats keep breaking their own rules. Only this time, its the VICE PRESIDENT OF THE US! The White House refused to adress Hoffa's remarks, but surely they can't kick this one under the rug, as its coming from the VP.

I think this is where Biden goes from 'funny guy who makes silly remarks' to 'offensive, out-of-line Vice President who needs to start taking responsibility for what comes out of his mouth.'

Oh, Biden... I love him, but he does say the dumbest things sometimes. I wonder what it's like to be a press aide to him? From a Politico article on this (

When Mattera asked for a comment on whether using such language was appropriate for Biden as the vice president, an aide pushed Biden through the crowd.

“I’m sorry, we’ve got to go,” the aide said, according to a video of the exchange Human Events posted.

So if the jobs bill passes, will start selling t-shirts that say, "The Jobs Plan: So no one will be on the other side of the gun" like they did with Obamacare & Biden's big effing deal comment?
