This week I have just been sitting back and watching the news, and what has been going on with the Global Warming hoax, and then suddenly Joe *the gaffmaster* Biden decides to speak up, giving me another opportunity to see the left at work. Making me wonder once again, why so many on the left follow them devoutly.
After Biden decided that it was the current administration who put the war in Iraq on good footing, he went on “Slay the Nation” as both Rush and I love to call the CBS networks’ show Face the Nation, where former Vice President Dick Cheney and Vice President Joe Biden traded barbs. But on Slay the Nation, Bob Schieffer who interviewed Biden, said, “Let’s talk a little bit about the trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who was scheduled to be held in New York, the attorney general said they’re going to do that. He thought this would set an example for the world, and then suddenly after the election of Scott Brown in Massachusetts who said we ought to be spending money catching terrorists, not spending money to make sure they had a lawyer to defend ’em and talking about civilian trials and all that, suddenly the mayor of New York said we don’t need to do this.”
BIDEN: Look, I can tell you two things. I don’t know whether the new Senator from Massachusetts understands when you get tried in a military tribunal you get a lawyer, too, so it’s good if we begin to learn the facts about all these things. You get a lawyer whether you’re in a military tribunal or whether you’re in a federal court, number one.
Now usually folks, the left gets away with this sort of thing with everyone keeping quiet about they’re typical condescending arrogance, that always seems to come from the left. But this time, someone spoke out against it. And that someone? It was none other than the new Senator from Massachusetts, Scott Brown.
From the Politico, was this:
Sen. Scott Brown thinks Vice President Joe Biden was “off base” when he suggested Sunday that the Massachusetts Republican get his facts straight on the legal procedures for military tribunals.
“It was insulting,” said Brown, who frequently jabbed the administration during his Senate campaign for giving suspected terrorists legal representation.
On CBS’s “Face the Nation” last weekend, Biden shot back that he doesn’t “know whether the new senator from Massachusetts understands: When you get tried in a military tribunal, you get a lawyer, too.”
“He’s trying to give me a lesson on military law, and I didn’t think it was appropriate,” Brown told POLITICO. “And I thought he was off base when it comes to explaining to the American people that somehow I need a lesson on whether people get attorneys — of course they get attorneys. There’s a difference as to what type of attorney they’re going to get and when they’re going to get that attorney, and how are they treated, and what rights do they, in fact, get.”
Brown said he is particularly incensed by Biden’s remarks because he’s served in the Massachusetts Army National Guard for more than 30 years and is currently the Guard’s top defense attorney in New England.
“I know the military rules and regulations and procedures from A to Z,” Brown said.
Brown said he was spending time with his younger daughter, Arianna, who was home from Syracuse University, Sunday when he learned that Biden had taken a swing at him.
“I was actually surprised,” said Brown. When Biden swore him into office they had a nice chat, Brown said, and the vice president told him he could visit the vice presidential residence.
“I would have thought that he would have reached out personally rather than go through the media,” Brown said. “I’m not quite sure what the message to me was, but I felt that it was important enough to respond.”
Biden’s comments came as part of the White House’s effort to defend its move to try alleged Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in a federal court, as well as the decision to read Miranda rights to the accused Christmas Day bomber.
Brown pushed back Monday on one of the White House’s talking points about the handling of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab: that the Bush administration handled Richard Reid, the so-called shoe bomber, in the same way.
“I’ve always felt that suspected terrorists should be tried in military tribunals and not civilian court, and as a matter of fact so do the majority of Americans,” Brown said. “The big difference is are we going to pay $1,000 an hour for a private attorney and treat him as a civilian or ordinary criminal in a criminal court, or are we going give him a military attorney who’s going to be paid as a captain, major or lieutenant colonel, and obviously go through the military tribunal process?”
I think this is great, and the best part is, Biden spoke crap about a subject that he knows much less about than Brown does. And in doing so, Biden does what he always seems to do. Speak out of turn and about something he wishes he knew stuff about but really doesn ‘t. Usually, no one says anything back to him letting him know this fact. Finally someone did. And this America loving American loves it. Finally we have someone with a backbone, standing up for something America should stand up for. Her laws and traditions. Hooray for Senator Scott Brown.
This from Biden is almost as idiotic as him taking credit for Iraq, when Obama and him haven’t done a thing. It was all Bush and Cheney. It is time that the people stopped believing Obama when he speaks. I haven’t heard much out of him since he took office that was the truth. Same for Biden, the gaffmaster.
God Bless America, her troops, allies and citizens
