VP Biden: Domestic violence vs. “garden-variety slap across the face”

Biden differentiates between types of domestic violence

Joe Biden, America’s gaffe-prone Vice President joined with USAG Eric Holder to announce the allocation of 12 federal grants totaling $2.3 million, intended to aid local governments reduce domestic violence.

“We’ve learned that certain behaviors on the part of an abuser portend much more danger than other behaviors,“ Biden declared. “For example, if an abuser has attempted to strangle his victim, if he has threatened to shoot her, if he has sexually assaulted her, and there’s a number of other signs, about eight others,” he rambled. “These are tell-tale signs to say this isn’t your garden-variety slap across the face……”

Yes. He actually said that.

In an obvious example of hypocritical, liberal double standards, Team Obama — including blunder-king Biden — dropping hints about his own 2016 presidential aspirations — ridiculed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for explaining his meticulous policy of recruitment of women for cabinet positions while governor of Massachusetts.

    A woman would have to be pretty wimpy to get upset over a “garden-variety slap across the face.” No Democrat woman worth her salt would beef about that….right?

    • eubykdisop says:

      The Obama administration is confused about what is appropriate for women and what is appropriate for men, Maggie. That’s because they have surrounded themselves with so many appointees who are also confused in that regard.

      “LGBT Appointments in the Obama-Biden Administration”

      “To date, the Obama-Biden Administration has appointed more than 250 openly LGBT professionals to full-time and advisory positions in the executive branch; more than all known LGBT appointments of other presidential administrations combined.”

      • Delilah says:

        That is because Obama is so comfortable around them, since he is so confused himself.

      • eubykdisop says:

        Quite right, Delilah! Because of his childhood, he has never even experienced a healthy American family. He has no idea what “normal” is. He has to guess and he is guessing wrong!

  2. Westnash says:

    The real issue is those grants and where did they go. Our elected officials, including city, county, and state have a staff of people who spend their time writing grant requests. The better the request, the more likely they get to snag some of this taxpayer money. Who has the guts to stop it? None of them.

    • eubykdisop says:

      That sounds good, Westnash, until we look at your record and see where you are coming from regarding spending. For example, you don’t want to spend money to protect our borders:

      “Westnash says:
      February 18, 2013 at 3:35 pm
      What I worry that the Secure Our Borders bunch really wants is to spend Billions more in hiring and fences which do nothing but increase the size of Govt.”

      You support across the board spending cuts which would weaken our military…

      “Westnash says:
      February 14, 2013 at 10:17 am
      I would propose an immediate 10% cut in all military expenditures including salaries. All of us can get by on 9 out of 10…..the govt. can as well…it is nothing but would make a huge dent in the problem.”

      Fortunately, the American people realize just how wrong you are:

      “Shaving eight percent off the military budget, on the other hand, is opposed by 73 percent of Republicans and 63 percent of independents, with Democrats split down the middle.”

      • Westnash says:

        SRAZ, these are the delusional attacks that appear after every post. They contribute nothing and other posters are tired of it. Does it bother you,,,or full speed ahead?

      • eubykdisop says:

        They are your words quoted verbatim, Westnash. If they are delusional, it’s because your words are delusional.

        They do contribute, Westnash, by exposing you as a Liberal pretending to be Conservative.

        Your attempt to get me to stop, by saying that other posters are tired of it, merely proves the effectiveness in exposing you for the Liberal that you are. There are, of course, some posters you seem to have forgotten. “Observer” wrote this to me about you:

        “Observer says:
        March 3, 2013 at 9:26 pm
        Bravo, euby! You had this guy nailed as a liberal early on. How right you were…despite all of his protestations to the contrary.”

        Full speed ahead, Westnash!

      • eubykdisop says:

        By the way, Westnash, I like the way you mischaracterize my comment as an “attack”, seeking to take the high ground. How can quoting, verbatim, the political views and positions which you have put in writing in this blog constitute an “attack”? The only other thing in my comment is the results of a poll. How does that constitute an “attack”? Like all Liberals, you seek to portray yourself as a victim. If you are a victim, you are a victim of the truth.

    • Ellsworth says:

      Both of you (Westnash and euby) need to stick to the issue at hand and get out of attack mode. I’ve begun to think that the intent of this in tandem bickering is to drive readers away. My solution: BOTH of you try typing without mentioning the other’s name. is that too adult a solution?

      • eubykdisop says:

        Ellsworth, I don’t dictate to you what to address, please don’t dictate to me what to address. My Conservative conscience does that quite well.

        As regards “driving people away”, I’ve heard that sorry excuse for an argument brought up literally thousands of times in Conservative blogs when there is debate between Conservatives and Liberals. It doesn’t cut it and across more than ten years of posting in Conservative blogs, I have never seen that come to pass. In fact, Conservative/Liberal debate tends to increase readership.

        As regards your solution, it isn’t too adult, it’s too weak. You can feel free to give Liberals attempting to pose as Conservatives a free pass. I choose not to. You do things your way and I’ll do things mine.

      • westnash says:

        I agree with you. SRAZ should take charge.

      • eubykdisop says:

        Let’s have a look at some of the other things with which you agree, Westnash.

        You agree with the cuts to defense spending of Democrat B. Hussein Obama:

        “Westnash says:
        February 14, 2013 at 10:17 am
        I would propose an immediate 10% cut in all military expenditures including salaries. All of us can get by on 9 out of 10…..the govt. can as well…it is nothing but would make a huge dent in the problem.”

        You agree with Democrat Jane Napolitano that our borders are secure:

        “Westnash says:
        February 18, 2013 at 3:35 pm
        What I worry that the Secure Our Borders bunch really wants is to spend Billions more in hiring and fences which do nothing but increase the size of Govt.”

        You agree with the gun control of Democrat B. Hussein Obama:

        “Westnash says:
        January 8, 2013 at 8:00 am
        There will be some changes in gun regulations at some point in 2013 and the Republicans who only tow the NRA line of “no” will lose. Wouldn’t you rather outsmart your opponent than trying unsuccessfully in throwing up a wall, that is crumbling down around you.”

        You agree with the Democrat disdain for Sheriff Arpaio:

        “Westnash says:
        March 1, 2013 at 9:06 am
        Interesting that when you have someone like Joe who continues to hang on…you have a real vacuum behind them. Their ego just wont let them develop a successor. Joe should retire soon and develop a strong successor…but I am afraid hubris has set in long ago.”

        You agree with the Reconquista’s promotion of the Spanish language:

        “Westnash says:
        March 12, 2013 at 8:36 am
        I would be in favor of Arizona requiring Spanish (for legal students of course).”

        Poster “Observer” said it best when he wrote this to me about you:

        “Observer says:
        March 3, 2013 at 9:26 pm
        Bravo, euby! You had this guy nailed as a liberal early on. How right you were…despite all of his protestations to the contrary.”

      • Westnash says:

        You can see that I asked SRAZ to do something about it with no response. I asked twice and have previously. I wont ask any more and apologize to other posters but I will respond to the personal attacks.

      • eubykdisop says:

        Yet once again, Westnash, you claim “personal attacks” when there are no personal attacks. There are merely verbatim quotes of what you have written in this blog. I would sincerely like to see your “defense” against your own statements. You have the floor, Westnash.

  3. eubykdisop says:

    While Liberals like Westnash seek to portray this as a generic problem, the above SRAZ article addresses $2.3 million in grants specifically from the Democrat Obama administration. Here is where the administration of Democrat B. Hussein Obama has chosen to spend more of your tax money:

    “Feds Spend $1.5M to Study Fat Lesbians”

    “by Breitbart News, 12 Mar 2013″

    “The National Institutes of Health have now dedicated $1.5 million to studying one of life’s greatest mysteries: why are lesbians fat?”

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/03/12/Feds-Spend-million-fat-lesbians

    • Westnash says:

      I am saying that most, if not all, of the grants, liberal and conservative should be eliminated. Campaign supporters get their payback via these and taxpayers get hosed.

      Studying fat lesbians is a waste as is allowing the Navy to buy biofuel for $26 a gallon. As is building MRAPS the military didnt ask for. It is all a form of bribery that has become commonplace.

    • eubykdisop says:

      No, Westnash, that is not what you said. This is what you said:

      “Westnash says:
      March 14, 2013 at 11:39 am
      The real issue is those grants and where did they go. Our elected officials, including city, county, and state have a staff of people who spend their time writing grant requests. The better the request, the more likely they get to snag some of this taxpayer money. Who has the guts to stop it? None of them.”

      This is what the SRAZ article stated:

      “Joe Biden, America’s gaffe-prone Vice President joined with USAG Eric Holder to announce the allocation of 12 federal grants totaling $2.3 million, intended to aid local governments reduce domestic violence.”

      Like a loyal Liberal DEMOCRAT, you seek to take the heat off of Biden and the DEMOCRATS and spread it around so that it falls on Republicans as well. That’s a very old, disingenuous Liberal tactic used by Liberal DEMOCRATS like you when DEMOCRATS get their butts in the wringer over something. You explicitly continue this effort in your next comment by stating:

      “Westnash says:
      March 15, 2013 at 11:20 am
      I am saying that most, if not all, of the grants, liberal and conservative should be eliminated.”

      No, Westnash, the article is about Liberal DEMOCRAT Joe Biden, Liberal DEMOCRAT Eric Holder and the DEMOCRATIC Obama administration and holding them accountable for what they have done and what they have said.

      The primary focus of the article is this statement by Liberal DEMOCRAT Joe Biden:

      “These are tell-tale signs to say this isn’t your garden-variety slap across the face……”

      Contrary to your assertion, that statement by Liberal DEMOCRAT Joe Biden is “the real issue”.

      Nice try at rescuing your fellow Liberal DEMOCRATS, Westnash, but no cigar!

  4. Army Of One says:

    Biden’s well known idiocy aside, what the hell is the Obama administration doing giving millions to any program at this time? We’re broke.

  5. Marianne says:

    An often unspoken truth about domestic violence is that many women make very poor choices that lead to abuse. Choosing an alcoholic, addict or controlling guy is often a recipe for disaster. I work in health care and have seen this repeatedly. A man who wants to have a minute by minute accounting of who a woman sees, talks to or keeps her from family or friends is not doing so out of “love” but out of the need to subjugate. Young women often view this behavior as “caring,” when it’s actually an insidious means of control that continues to increases until she is powerless. If kept from the workplace, she has no livelihood and no means to facilitate removing herself and her children from this torment. It then becomes generational as the children view this behavior as normal. The girls pattern after the abused mom and the boys follow in the footsteps of the abuser.

    • Observer says:

      The dire consequences of “sequestration” is supposed to be shutting everything down…even White House tours. Yet money can be found for whatever programs the liberals think will keep their constituency onboard the gravy train. I feel sorry for the children exposed to this home-based terror. Marianne is right. Too many of these women consciously made the “he’s so cute” choices that put them in these grim circumstances.

      • Westnash says:

        Sequestration is a game and results in a tiny cut to a bloated govt. The cuts should be deep.

      • eubykdisop says:

        That makes you sound very Conservative, Westnash, when you are in fact a Liberal DEMOCRAT.

        You see, there is a difference between the cuts that Conservative Republicans want to make and the cuts that Liberal Democrats want to make. For example, DEMOCRAT B. Hussein Obama has already made dangerous cuts in defense spending and wants to make even more. Conservative Republicans oppose such cuts as they may destroy our military readiness. Where do you stand?

        “Westnash says:
        February 14, 2013 at 10:17 am
        I would propose an immediate 10% cut in all military expenditures including salaries. All of us can get by on 9 out of 10…..the govt. can as well…it is nothing but would make a huge dent in the problem.”

        You stand squarely with DEMOCRAT B. Hussein Obama!
