It’s Friday, we Ricochetti are understandably nervous about next Tuesday, and we could use a laugh, right? Who better to deliver one than the most gaffe-tastic vice president ever, our beloved Joe Biden.
Yeah, Mark, I agree. Listening to it on day 2, the crux of it is is there’s a double-negative employed. So factually, he said what he wanted to say, although it’s a train-wreck, grammatically.
On the member feed, several hours ago.
Isn’t this the guy who, when Paul Ryan gently twitted him on his ‘words not always coming out the way you want them to,’ put on his rictus grin and confidently stated, ‘but I always say what I mean.’ (Or was it ‘mean what I say?’)
Either way, there you go.
Give him time. It took Michelle over 40 years to be proud of her country. Once the Obama administration gets close to the length of Castro’s, Joe might have a change of heart.
Funny, I’ve seen this a lot on Facebook today, but I still hear ‘hasn’t been’ with a hiccup, like the cadence was off but the content was there, like Armstrong’s mangled moon landing dedication. I think it caught caught on his tongue a little bit, but he said it. But maybe it’s just my ear.
honestly i think he said ” I ain’t been proud” in a unconvincingly folksy way, sort of like Hilary’s “i ain’t in no ways tired” . which is awful and patronizing but not a gaffe.
Uncle Joe rides again!
I am 34 years old now. When HW Bush was in office I remember several derisive comments from my mother about VP Quayle. Funny enough, she is full of excuses for ‘ol Joe.
Agreed. It was more a glottal stop than a full ”ain’t”, but it was there, I think.
Still, I’m all for not giving him the benefit of the doubt, just cuz it’s so much fun to make fun of him.
Biden has instant “plausible deniability” about everything he says. Maybe as a response to his plagiarism, he embarked on a strategy to use stupidity to excuse anything that might come back to haunt him.

I have a 6 month old Yellow Lab with more brains than Biden.
Joe Biden has done to the English language what Jim Jones did to Kool-Aid. Surely there must be a level of Hell, that Danté overlooked, reserved solely for this particular Vice- Jack-Ass,
The one time you can be absolutely sure is he is actually speaking the truth!
But the audience cheered! Aren’t we supposed to be the stupid party?
Funny I don’t hear any glottal stop or an “ain’t.” What I get is, “There’s never been a day in the last four years when I’ve been proud to be his vice president, not one single day … not one single day.”

If it didn’t fit the pattern, it wouldn’t be any fun. It may be fake but it’s accurate.

Agree with those who hear his version of “I haven’t been proud” which comes out as something like “I ‘nt been proud.” Sadly I no longer find it amusing to make fun of him. He is not only wrong-headed, he’s capable of being as mean as a snake, and it’s shameful that he is our vice president.
Senility? Alzheimers? What ever is going on, Biden is losing his mind. Perfect fit to be a heart beat away fm the presidency.
And he could be president. Some joke.
