Karl Rove and Joe Biden in a War of Words

"I'm rubber and you're glue!" Well Karl Rove didn't exactly say that to Joe Biden, but he did call him a "blowhard" and a "liar." Ouch!

Earlier this week the vice president recalled an encounter he had with President Bush. He said Bush told him "Well, Joe . . . I'm a leader." And Joe responded: "Mr. President, turn around and look behind you. No one is following."

Well Rove says it ain't so Joe. And he's Bush's brain, so he should know. Going on Fox News, Rove tried to set the record straight: "It didn't happen. It's his imagination. It's a made-up, fictional world. He ought to get out of it and get back to reality.” Rove also dropped the "blowhard" and "liar" labels, too.

Are you on Team Joe or Team Karl?

Chaton, "Turd Blossom" is Bush's nickname for Karl Rove.

Sometimes I come up with one liners I wish I had an opportunity to say too. I don't think Biden expected anyone to think of it as a true story in a strict sense. It's just a little piece of rhetorical flair. Like when politicans make up some little old lady in the Midwest who wrote them a letter and respond to it in a speech. Do we expect that to be really true? No, not really.

Steph, I am the first to admit I am not omniscient; if I were would stop asking questions, have no need for reasoned debate. I think I would be bored to tears, if I reached the point there was nothing more to learn. All that would be left for me would the acquisition of incredible power, amass fabulous wealth, and be insufferably pedantic. So far the only thing I can possibly achieve is the latter. ;-)

If you don't know who 'Turdblossom' is, or about the smear campaign against McCain, then you don't know as much about the news as one would expect from all you have to say here.

I remember that story--nice insult to the McCains and their daughter Bridget. :oy:

Hey at least Rove didn't ask a guy in a wheelchair to stand up! Joe Biden is an idiot. If he told me the sky was blue, I'd double check.

Her comment was reported by the press...then they found out she was speaking to her daughter!

yes, I remember the story on the adoption. I seriously doubt Cindy would make such a comment though.

The girl is adopted. She has dark skin, she may be from India. The only thing I know is a derogatory remark made by Ms. Cindy to the girl make people think she is black.

I never heard any story about McCain fathering a black child. You sure you are not confusing McCain with Jefferson? They were classmates at one time :rotfl:

These 2 are...whatever. But it's funny thou, although I just don't get why are they being silly (both Rove and Biden).

Are you sure she isn't referring to Biden the Plagarist, or Biden who said he's always supported clean coal tech (after saying he's Never supported clean coal tech), Biden the ecconomist, who has stated that we spent more in Iraq in three weeks than in the entire war in Afghanistan, or Biden the warrior who said he was told by the Afghan Generals that the surge principle would not work?

I you examine the lies Steph is listing, you would know it's Rove. But that realization would be so...un-Dave.

So, you're talking about Biden?

I'm referring to Turdblossom and his very long, very sad history with the truth.
Grandpa Grandpa 8 years
Steph, who are you referring too. and what are you talking about?
stephley stephley 8 years
Fascinating that anyone would for one second listen to a word Turdblossom would say. He is after all, the man who claimed McCain fathered a black child, claimed Congress rushed the Bush Administration into the Iraq war, pretended to be outraged about the outing of a CIA operative...
