Thank you, Vice President Biden
Author: Raine    Date: 10/22/2015 13:11:54

Yesterday, The vice-president of the United States made public his decision to not run for president.

Much will be said in the coming days about why and how and this and that regarding this choice. For now, I would like to thank this man for his lifetime spent in public service to our country. Yesterday, Mr Biden gave to us his hopes for the future.

And I believe we need a moon shot in this country to cure cancer. It’s personal. But I know we can do this. The president and I have already been working hard on increasing funding for research and development because there are so many breakthroughs just on the horizon in science and medicine, the things that are just about to happen, and we can make them real, with an absolute national commitment to end cancer as we know it today. And I’m going to spend the next 15 months in this office pushing as hard as I can to accomplish this, because I know there are Democrats and Republicans on the Hill who share our passion—our passion to silence this deadly disease.

If I could be anything, I would have wanted to be the president that ended cancer, because it’s possible.

I also believe we need to keep moving forward in the arc of this nation toward justice. The rights of the LGBT community, immigration reform, equal pay for women and protecting their safety from violence, rooting out institutional racism, at their core every one of these things is about the same thing, it’s about equality, it’s about fairness, it’s about respect. As my dad used to say, it’s about affording every single person dignity. It’s not complicated. Every single one of these issues is about dignity and the ugly forces of hate and division, they won’t let up, but they do not represent the American people. They do not represent the heart of this country. They represent a small fraction of the political elite, and the next president is going to have to take it on.


This is a good and decent man. We are a better nation for statespersons like him.

Thank you sir.

I'm home because my car is in the shop (rear brakes) so I'm watching Rep Cummings blast the witchhunt.

Comment by trojanrabbit on 10/22/2015 14:26:17
I wonder if Pinhead Gowdy will alter the documents Cummings is putting in the record.

So Trey Trey says he's going to try not to cut her off. Uh huh. We'll see how long that lasts. I don't think he realized he was still on camera.

Again, let me provide a meme from one of my favorite movies that expresses my feeling re: Rep Gowdy:

Maybe I should switch from Momma to C-SPAN

Rep Smith - words to the effect of "why the fuck are we here"? Nothing new being brought up.

I know that sounds hard to understand…

Comment by Raine on 10/22/2015 16:15:25
You know, HAving a few friends that work at the state department and are overseas, I am surprisingly finding myself taking this inquiry personally.

My friends around the world deserve better treatment than what the Republican party is saying about them.

IT is rather sickening. I am really surprised at how personal this suddenly feels.

Comment by trojanrabbit on 10/22/2015 16:17:10
Shut up Pompeo, you pompous asshole, let her talk.

The only reason you're there is because you represent a bunch of inbred fucking wastes of protoplasm.

Comment by trojanrabbit on 10/22/2015 16:23:02
Rep Sanchez up now.


Comment by Raine on 10/22/2015 16:23:04
Mike Pompeo brings in the alex Jones type conspiracy bullshit. And clinton again —

I love Loretta Sanchez.

We know of one moronic fucktard who was rather inattentive on a different Sept 11.
