Joe Biden's Top Gaffes
Joe Biden may just be one of my favorite political characters in history, not for his accomplishments, but because of the headache his presence on the Democratic ticket must cause the party. Presenting the best moments from our Vice-President:
Joe Biden and 7-11s:
“You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.”
Biden and the Indian accent:
"I would like to talk to you about your credit card."
Biden on Obama:
"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy."
The media went nuts over Paul Ryan's marathon time, but ignored this from Biden:
Biden also demonstrated either poor reality testing – or a propensity for lying – when he claimed in 1987 that he "went to law school on a full academic scholarship – the only one in my class to have a full academic scholarship," and that he "ended up in the top half" of his class.
He also said that in college, he was "the outstanding student in the political science department" and "graduated with three degrees."
However, after inaccuracies in his statements were exposed, Biden made this admission on Sept. 22, 1987: "I did not graduate in the top half of my class at law school, and my recollection of this was inaccurate." He had actually graduated 76th in a class of 85 from the Syracuse College of Law. And in college, Biden had received a single B.A. degree.
Biden and geography:
"..that with you, and I mean this ladies and gentlemen. With you, we can win North Carolina again and if we do, we win the election, if we win you."
Biden advises on swine flu:

Biden on Hillary Clinton:
"Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president of the United States of America. Quite frankly, it might have been a better pick than me."
