Joe Biden Pays Port Visits

U.S. President Barack Obama still hasn’t paid a visit to the Palmetto State since becoming the nation’s chief executive … but his No. 2 is making yet another trip.

Joe Biden – who rolls deep on your dime – will be paying a visit to the Port of Charleston next week. Biden will also visit the Port of Savannah, which got a major competitive boost last year when S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley embraced its expansion plans in exchange for political considerations.

What have been the economic repercussions of Haley’s “Savannah River Sellout?” In 2003 the Port of Charleston, S.C. was the world’s 42nd largest – and the fifth largest in the nation. Today? Charleston has surrendered its coveted spot on the world’s top fifty ports list to Savannah.

More importantly, Haley’s sellout killed off any chance of building a public-private port facility in Jasper County, S.C. – home to the last remaining deepwater port location on the Eastern Seaboard.

According to the White House, Biden’s visits will tout the importance of federal infrastructure investments – including the massive federal contribution to the Savannah harbor expansion. Of course the visits will also tout Biden, who remains in the mix for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016.

Is he going to spend some time down at Kiawah and mess up traffic everywhere while he runs around?

In further news, Biden will welcome Haley as a traveling companion on both stops.

Together, they will take a dump in the port of Charleston and after moving on to Savannah, Biden will give Haley $15,000 towards her re-election campaign and ceremonially bone her on the Tallmadge Memorial during rush hour to show the public their mutual commitment to crony capitalism.

Vincent Sheehen will be in attendance as well, but it is rumored he will be relegated to begging for donations while simultaneously crying on the bridge.

Excerpts from JoJo’s Speech:
“I’d like to think my good friend Senator Thurmond for inviting me down here, stand up Strom, oh, er, uh Strom’s dead, don’t I feel like a dumb-ass. You know, this TV coverage is something remarkable, if Roosevelt hadn’t been able to televise his fire side chats, we might have never won World War I. Speaking of Roosevelt, Franklin said “walk softly and carry a big stick” and I just want you to know that I promise you that the president has a big stick, I promise you. I’d like to think Governor Phatel for being here with us, what, her names isn’t Pathel?!? You know, speaking of Indian women, you can’t go into a 7-11 or Dunkin Donuts without having a slight Indian accents. Speaking of good the economy and Dunkin Donuts, you know, me and the president really have two things in the forefront of our minds, two three letters words, J-O-B-S and P-O-R-T-S. thanks for coming out today folks, I’ll be here for the next twenty minutes (slightly off mike) Ok Chuck let’s get the fuc….outa here …”

From Keith Koffler: (Aug 12-2012)
Ten reasons Obama kept Biden on the ticket —-

1. Biden remarks to Obama every morning how handsome he looks today.

2. He tells Obama everything he does is a “gutsy move.”

3. Biden promised to have a red light implanted on his forehead that turns on every time he is about to say something stupid.

4. Obama hopes Biden will help with voters who don’t speak English.

5. Biden has a copy of Obama’s college transcripts.

6. Biden threatened to strip down to his underwear and commit hari-kari in front of the Air and Space Museum.

7. The only 3 am phone call Obama gets is Biden sobbing to keep his job.

8. Biden promised to eat fish three times a week to improve brain
function.

9. He promised to campaign mostly in Guam.

10. Michelle really likes Biden’s comb over.

“U.S. President Barack Obama still hasn’t paid a visit to the Palmetto State since becoming the nation’s chief executive…” because Michelle’s ansestors were slaves at Friendfield Plantation in Georgetown County and she won’t let him. We all know Barack
“visited all 57 states” including SC when he was pandering for votes…just proves he’s not the President of ALL Americans.
