Political Correctness Police, PCP’s, target Senator Joe Biden again. Paula Zahn Now on CNN is covering the story of Biden’s remarks on Obama and also an old comment about Indians and Dunkin Donuts and 7-11.
“I’ve had a great relationship. In Delaware, the largest growth in population is Indian-Americans moving from India. You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking,” Biden said.
In the article published Wednesday, Biden is quoted evaluating presidential rivals Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-New York, former Sen. John Edwards, D-North Carolina, and Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois. His remarks about Obama, the only African-American serving in the Senate, drew the most scrutiny.
“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” Biden said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”
Biden issued a statement Wednesday afternoon, saying: “I deeply regret any offense my remark in the New York Observer might have caused anyone. That was not my intent and I expressed that to Sen. Obama.”
Hilary had her comment on Indians as well. She referenced Gandhi running a gas station in St. Louis. CNN also played that up big.
Compare this to the risks Democrats expose us to.
The Democrats expose us to risk from Iran by limiting war options of President Bush. If we do hot pursuit into Iran for some incident or they retaliate for our actions against them in Iraq by shooting an anti-ship missile at a Nimitz class carrier, we can lose 5700 people in one shot.
If we do a ground invasion, and pull our ships out, we might lose 200 to 2000 killed. By limiting us to retaliating to a small level, the Democrats actually will cost us 5 to 20 thousand killed at sea. We also let Iran use its subs at a time of its choosing.
Anything other than an immediate ground invasion of Iran exposes us to unacceptable risks. This is because we can defeat Iran at low cost by ground, but they can retaliate against our ships until we occupy them on the ground.
ST. LOUIS, Missouri (AP) — Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton apologized for joking that Mahatma Gandhi used to run a gas station in St. Louis, saying it was “a lame attempt at humor.”
