Biden opens his mouth - again
Vice President Biden has to be one of he biggest idiots I've ever seen in high office...
Ahead of a day that could prove decisive, NewsHour host Jim Lehrer asked Biden if the time has "come for President Mubarak of Egypt to go?" Biden answered: "No. I think the time has come for President Mubarak to begin to move in the direction that – to be more responsive to some... of the needs of the people out there."

Asked if he would characterize Mubarak as a dictator Biden responded: "Mubarak has been an ally of ours in a number of things. And he's been very responsible on, relative to geopolitical interest in the region, the Middle East peace efforts; the actions Egypt has taken relative to normalizing relationship with – with Israel. … I would not refer to him as a dictator."
Now let's interpret his words, breaking them down bit by bit, according to Biden...
So, only some of the people, or is it some of the needs? No matter, this is a way out for a liberal.
So government should be 'more responsive' .. so then how much more? Maybe not that much, as is the ways of liberals.
move in the direction... Well that's a perfect response from a liberal .. truthful, because it means that they don't have to do much, just move in the direction.
to begin to... well then if government doesn't move in the direction fast enough, then the ruler can fall back on the position that they only promised 'to begin to move in the direction' so that they really don't have to move at all.
Yet we also see that Biden is actually 'thinking', but I don't think his thinking has anything to do with the people of Egypt, nor Mubarak, but rather his thinking is 100% dedicated, using his supercomputer brain, toward parsing words so that they sound good, but yet mean nothing.
Good luck to the people of Egypt, who are finally rising up to a 30+ year dictator, rightfully so! I hope he meets the same justice that the people of Romania used in 1989 toward their dictator.
