"Let's kill the airline industry!"

Biden's flu remarks create headache for White House

WASHINGTON — Vice President Joe Biden , already known for his gaffes, pulled a doozy on Thursday.

Biden told a national TV audience he was urging his own family to stay off commercial airliners and out of subways for fear of catching the swine flu, a statement that went way farther than any from the Obama administration.

If Biden & Kerry are exemplars of Democratic Senatorial wisdom, sort of makes you wonder how Obama managed to escape the Senate with his wits intact. Maybe because he only stayed there for 4 years?


  1. I think Joe Biden is an exemplar of saying what he thinks without vetting himself for political that defined as a gaffe? I find it refreshing, frankly. And he may be saving's probably a good idea to stay off airlines and out of subways now.

  2. Classic over reaction with hoof-in-mouth disease.
