Biden…twit or just your normal political opportunist?

Soooooo, at yesterday’s Giants-Eagles game…GO GIANTS…Biden was apparently booed by the home crowd.

A few weeks ago the press made a big deal about Sarah Palin being booed at a Hockey game in Philly. Well Palin isn’t a hometown girl anyway but Biden is supposed to be a PA boy. Born in scranton, we heard over and over ad nauseum during the election. It was as if they couldn’t remind those much needed PA voters “he’s on of you” enough.

But the thing in the article that grabbed my attention wasn’t that they booed him, Philly fans are probably the least classy fans in all of sports (they boo their own at the drop of a hat or flyball or pass…etc), no what grabbed my attention was this little nugget:

“Biden calls himself an Eagles fan but emphasizes that his wife Jill, raised in the Philadelphia suburbs, is the real fan in the family.

“My wife is a die-hard Eagles fan, so we watch every Eagles game,” Biden told reporters during a tour of the Pro Football Hall of Fame in September.

“I’m not allowed to say this,” he added, whispering to the reporters, “but I also like the Giants.”

 

Now I know sports aren’t all that important in the grand scheme of things but can we get past candidates both running and elected who claim to like every team out there? Especially when they happen to mention how much they love the team of….whatever town they are in? Hillary claimed to be a life long Yankee’s fan and now Biden looks to molify those New Yorkers too by claiming to be one of them.

This wouldn’t bother me too much but it seems that Biden has a habit of saying one thing one day and another the next. Clean Coal being a good example. Of course that makes him the perfect running mate of Barack “Janus” Obama who insults those in PA while he’s in San Fran and then praises them when he’s in PA, or who says one day the tax limit will be $250k and its now down to $200k (Biden said $150k, I’m still taking bets for the over/under on the final number). And going back to Clean Coal, it seems Biden was telling the truth when he said no plants here even though Obama said it wasn’t true because an interview surfaced where Obama said he’d bankrupt anyone who wanted to build any new coal plant here in the US.

Maybe Obama can learn a trick from Biden and whisper his true feelings for US industry.
