obama-dumb1It seems Barack Obama has been spending too much time around Joe Biden, the walking, talking gaffe machine now serving his second term as vice president.

You guys can’t sit down though, because you don’t  have chairs. You guys stay straight — although bend your knees so you  don’t faint.”

“I’m also told that Chuck Graham, state senator, is here,” Biden said.  “Stand up Chuck, let them see you. Oh, God love ya. What am I talking about. I tell you what, you’re making everybody else stand up, though, pal…I tell you what, stand up for Chuck!”
