Just Joe Bein' Joe

From the White House yesterday : "The Obama Administration strongly opposes all aspects of China’s coercive birth limitation policies, including forced abortion and sterilization."

It's been awhile since the Vice President has publicly stuck his foot in his mouth, so his comments from China expressing "understanding" for the regime's one-child policy were a useful reminder that doing so is, after all, his penchant.  It must get old cleaning up after this guy.

For the record, I don't think the VP, if he stopped to think about, would find anything acceptable about China's population control policies.

But then that's the problem, isn't it?  The guy rarely stops to think about it.

As long as I've been aware of Joe Biden as a public figure, I've found him not just an empty suit, but an insufferable buffoon as well.  He's one of those loud talking, glad-handers with which we're all familiar, a man more than a bit too eager to ingratiate himself with whomever he's talking, whatever audience he's addressing.  As a result, he'll say just about anything even if it contradicts something he said only a minute before.  Other than his membership in the Democrat Party, a man like Biden is incapable of consistency, much less coherence.

So, will Biden, the president who chose him, or the party that supports him suffer for this latest episode of his of opening his mouth before engaging his brain?  Not likely.  Unfortunately, he, and they, are the beneficiaries of a public that for the most part already discounts such buffoonery on his part.  It's similar to the discounting afforded former President Clinton when he was discovered in the Oval Office with his pants down around his knees. "Oh, for heaven's sake, that's just Bill being Bill."
