He is a decent guy. He was a good Senator.
Also, he is a smart, funny person.
Why all the hate?
Curious to know
'cause he sucks? Duh?
I don't hate him.
I would love to work for him. He seems like a very cool guy. For example, while he was a Senator he'd take Amtrak from Delaware to D.C. He knew all the conductors, and would also chat with other passengers.
I actually love Joe Biden. He was a brilliant senator. I admire him greatly.
Where do you see all this "hate"? I'm not aware of any huge amount of hate for Joe Biden.
People rag on him constantly, I don't get it either.
No hate, just because he's a plagiarist, won't show his brain scans and he's still at Katy's Cafe?
He's not smart, but he is well-connected and knows how to play the Washington-insider game, which he has done very well for many years. A lot of people see him as an example of the old-school, firmly entrenched career politician who knows where a lot of bodies are buried.
He had the Patriot Act written and ready to go after the Oklahoma City Bombings. They didn't get it passed tho. After 9/11 he liked to call himself the "Father of the Patriot Act." So that's why I hate Joe Biden.
He's a wimp.
R8 - you just described practically every politician in the US...
He kept Robert Bork out of the Supreme Court. He tried to keep Clarence Thomas out.
Those are two big wins, as far as I'm concerned.

A relative of mine is very friendly with DOCTOR Jill Biden.
Whenever she is introduced as DOCTOR Jill Biden, I always think, "BOOM BOOM BOOM."
R13, you are full of shit. He did not try to keep Clarence Thomas out. He polished Thomas' dick while completely raping Anita Hill. She was insulted and humiliated in front of the Senate. She, being an adult, moved on with her life. Thomas is still whining and should be impeached.
As Chairman, Biden's treatment of Hill was despicable.

You do know he voted AGAINST Thomas' confirmation, right?
The Voice of the Night
He kisses O's pink asshole surrounded by brown skin and a butt-afro laden with dingleberries? ♥☻☺♥
He also opposes gay marriage.
So he's not exactly ahead of his time.
Biden is a foot in the mouth moron, OP.
As a US Senator, Joe Biden voted for DOMA in 1996. That may not mean anything to you OP, but that law is still harming tax paying gay Americans couples.
[quote]You do know he voted AGAINST Thomas' confirmation, right?
Stop trying to hijack this thread with facts.
And he is STILL against gay marriage.
Biden is stupid, corrupt, and his unwillingness to show leadership on the economy has allowed the president to cower in the corner. If Biden were out calling for caps on CEO compensation, new jobs programs for millions, etc., then Obama couldn't hide from these issues.
Well let's see, let me count the ways....they are to numerous to list, but Obama sending this brain dead vp out on the trail thinking he's a pit bull like Spiro Agnew, is ludicrous. The only thing he and Agnew share is the word crook.
He is a very articulate advocate for GLBT issues.
During the 2008 campaign, I watched him have an excellent conversation with people at the GLBT issues booth at the Iowa caucuses, and he was great, well-informed, relaxed and funny and clearly on our side.
I don't recall specifically anything he said about marriage equality, but he's an advocate for us.
Plus, he's a hot daddy who has given me wood since I first became aware of him during the Bork hearings.
The freepers and pumas here will never say anything good about Obama or Biden.
That said, I've been disappointed that Biden hasn't been more forceful in defending the White House proposals or getting the message out about what has actually been accomplished.
The latter is an opportunity that this administration has squandered repeatedly.
It's very possible that Biden hasn't been more forceful because Obama won't allow it.
"He is a very articulate advocate for GLBT issues."
By stating he is against gay marriage?
Oh, don't worry R29 -- he nicely allowed that we should be able to visit each other in the hospital!
He's a complete DOOFUS!
We love Joe Biden. It's the OP that we loathe. OP is a disgusting hate monger.
Totally an asshole during the Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill thing.
Why does no one remember that?
Why do we hardly ever see Joe Biden?
It reminds me of when Dick Cheney would disappear for months into his cave.
I love Joe Biden.
I don't think anybody genuinely hates Joe Biden, but he does have two significant flaws that make it hard to fully embrace him:
1. He can't go more than 2 seconds without saying something unbelievably stupid/cringe-inducing.
2. He's a bit pompous (not in a condescending way, but he clearly think he's a bit more awesome than he truly is).
3. He never says or does anything particularly profound. He kind of...exists.
He ripped into Anita Hill so as not to seem too liberal.
I've never forgiven him for that.
He's our national village idiot.
No, georgie porgie was the idiot.
Biden is an ass
Correction: Biden just fucked Ryan up the ass.
kuz he is a dog and a puke ball. head out of ass please
bidn is evil , get a grip people
Love Joe Biden, always have.
Why are all the Republican assholes who google "I hate Joe Biden" (yes, that's how they find their way to Datalounge and go on to revive this old thread) - why are they ALL SO FUCKING ILLITERATE?!
See R41, R43, R44.
Gay men who find Ryan "dreamy" with "purty eyes and a purty mouth" are completely mentally deranged. Or most likely, the ones now posting this shit here are freepers who have suddenly permeated DL. I find it shocking that any gay man would truly be a Republican.
Today's ReThugs are ugly inside and out and even if one ReThug male WAS attractive, his politics would be enough to turn me off!
ReThugs want to take away gay rights and womens rights, they want to push civil rights back to the dark ages! Ryan and Romney WILL take away your rights.
If the Republican gays don't see this, they need to seek some mental therapy.
Ageism, I dare say. If he dyed his hair, like Romney - might be perceived differenly.
Why are people saying Biden's against gay marriage? His remarks earlier this year about being in favor of it is a major reason why Obama went ahead and declared he was now in favor of it as well.
Riiiiight, Barry & Biden are so pro DOMA and equal marriage. sigh. Bet Time & Newsweek magazine wish they could retract those covers about now...
Joe's a nice guy. Why does OP see hate everywhere?
He's a buffoon.
Love him. He's the ideal vice-president: compassionate, outspoken, fairly honest.
But even so, I do not want him as my president.
He is a lovely example of American politics, media and culture. We give Joe a complete pass on his gaffes while we're still laughing at Dan Quayle's spelling of tomatoe and Lloyd Bentsen's carefully rehearsed put-down 25 years later.
I bet he is smarter and more savvy than Obama. He is badass, stupid people don't get it.
most people laugh at him
Joe Biden is the John McCain of the Democratic party.
Clownish, impulsive, poor judgement & too old to be president.
Past his expiration date.
He's a dumb Jew. He's over there crying about a few slant eyed gooks and sneak dutchman, who got killed because the pilots were STUPID ENOUGH to fly over a war zone where they were told NOT TO FLY.
Then he goes on about how more Palestinians should be killed.
He saved Obama's ass in the debate. Sheesh, how quickly we forget.
He's also of the few good old Democrats we have left. I think he's great.
Whatever one may think of Uncle Joe there is no doubt he would be better than the current president.
I haven't heard a lot of hate for Biden. He's not at all annoying. He just seems to mind his own business. At least he's not sending planes to fly into buildings so he can make 69 billion from a bogus war.
I think we should send Biden to the Middle East instead of Kerry.
