As more proof that respect is a one-way street on Fox News, host Mike Huckabee visited America’s Newsroom this morning and likened Vice President Joe Biden to “an obnoxious drunk who’s loud and boisterous and interrupts every conversation.” Despite all the hand-wringing the night before about Biden’s disrespect toward VP candidate Paul Ryan, do you think host Bill Hemmer found that out of line? Three guesses and the first two don’t count! (H/T Jay Diamond)
Here’s what Huckabee said:
I thought that Joe Biden came across like a guy that you meet at a cocktail party or some political event, an obnoxious drunk who’s loud and boisterous and interrupts every conversation. He just is the kind of guy you want to get away from as quickly as you can and go find someone else to talk to. It was just boorish behavior for the first half. I think somewhere during the debate, he took Ritalin and he started calming down by the end. But it was not the kind of thing that is very helpful to Joe Biden and his image with voters in the heartland of America who are taught to be polite. And he just wasn’t.
Last night, Fox Newsies fell all over themselves with concern about Biden’s disrespect, condescension, rudeness and more toward Congressman Ryan. In fact, a lower-third banner in this same segment complained Biden was "described as disrespectful." But this kind of talk about our vice president? Hemmer called that “interesting.”
But just like last night, the words “Ryan won the debate” were nowhere to be found.
Hey Gomer! – let Paulie stand up for hizself! Don’t makes him a 47%er!
Dear God in heaven these people are the absolute worst group of humanity.
Huckabee makes me think of this saying.
Don’t remember the name of the film, but that’s who Huckabee reminds me of.
@Rob Wilhelm: spot on. Everytime I hear him (and others of his ilk) speak, I wonder “What would Jesus Say?”. All that hatred, all that maligning, all that mis-representation. No wonder the likes of him believe that simply believing that God exists will save them. I don’t know if God exists or not but – if he does – I trust that he won’t reward the “doas I say not as I do” sort of christian (small C intended).
If Moral Oral Hucky wants to discuss disrespect, we can begin with News Corporation’s News International hacking of a murdered 13-year-old British girl’s phone, and the arrest of 47 people involved in criminal misconduct, most were News Corporation employees. Notice how Hucky is mum regarding the mounting criminal complaints against News Corporation.
King Mitt and his Court Jester Ryan have no problem associating themselves with News Corporation. The hacking scandals are not a big deal to these candidates.
When Ruthless Rupy goes down, he’s taking all of the GOP with him, including The Mitt.
