Joe Biden Latest Attacks On Sarah Palin

Joe Biden Attacks Sarah Palin on Abortion, Calls Her "Backwards Step for Women"

Washington, DC ( -- In a potential preview of the lone debate between the vice-presidential hopefuls that will take place this fall, pro-abortion candidate Joe Biden is attacking Sarah Palin on abortion. In an interview, Biden said it would be a "backwards step for women" if Palin becomes the first female Vice President.

During a campaign stop in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, a local television reporter asked Biden, "Do you think, if she does win, that would be a step forward for women."

Biden, a Delaware senator who is Barack Obama's running mate, disagreed and pointed to Palin's pro-life views on abortion as the reason why.

"Well look, I think the issue is what does Sarah Palin think? What does she believe?" he said.
"I assume she thinks and agrees with the same [pro-life] policies that George Bush and John McCain think," Biden added. "And that's obviously a backward step for women."

Dorinda Bordlee, a prominent attorney who is the senior counsel of the Bioethics Defense Fund, told she was flabbergasted by Biden's remarks.

She said she is not surprised that a man like Joe Biden, who has a long pro-abortion voting record, would attack Palin.

By saying pro-life policies are a "backward step for women," Biden is apparently "completely unaware of the mountain of evidence showing abortion's traumatic impact on women's physical and psychological health," she explained.


And this one............................

Joe Biden Slams Sarah Palin on Down Syndrome Son, Stem Cell Research

Joe Biden, Barack Obama's pro-abortion running mate, is coming under fire for comments he made today attacking vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin. After attacking her on abortion, Biden then slammed Palin on the birth of her son, who has Down syndrome.

During her acceptance speech last week, Palin promised the parents of disabled children that she would be their advocate in the White House.

Biden questioned that commitment by attacking Palin's stance on the issue of embryonic stem cell research, which has never helped a single patient.

"I hear all this talk about how the Republicans are going to work in dealing with parents who have both the joy, because there's joy to it as well, the joy and the difficulty of raising a child who has a developmental disability, who were born with a birth defect,' Biden said.
"Well guess what folks? If you care about it, why don't you support stem cell research?" Biden asked, questioning Palin's commitment.

The McCain campaign released a statement to on Tuesday responding to Biden's accusation and saying Biden's comments on stem cell research were "offensive."

"Barack Obama's running mate sunk to a new low today launching an offensive debate over who cares more about special needs children," McCain spokesman Ben Porritt said. "Playing politics with this issue is disturbing and indicative of a desperate campaign."

Marjorie Dannenfelser, the head of the Susan B. Anthony List, a pro-life women's group, also took strong exception to Biden's "caustic" comments.

"Biden outrageously implied that Americans who refuse to sacrifice innocent human life in the name of unproven, desperate attempts to cure our nation’s ills through embryo-destructive research somehow don't really care about children," she told
"I am a mother of five children, one with a mental disability. The fact that Joe Biden questioned the compassion of parents like me – Governor Sarah Palin, among them – makes me sputter in disbelief," she added.


Wild Thing's comment.........

Obama-bin-Biden are running against Motherhood, Apple Pie, love for special needs children, everything AMERICAN.

They are in full-bore self-destruct mode.

They insist on running against Bush and it aint gonna work. Bush isn't running, maybe they won't figure it out til November 5th.

Their assumption that all Women want to keep Abortion legal or that all women think Abortion is their Right and somehow puts them in control of their lives is ludricrous.

No-one has said anything about overturning Roe, but Obama has said he would sign an executive order recinding partial birth Abortion. Obama's stance on Infanticide is well known. Maybe they should be called the party of death. Because they sure as hell are not for life.

Do Democrats have mothers? Or do they come out of the shell snapping like a gator?

Keep your mouth motoring Biden. You love death? Well, your mouth and Michelle's and Barack's mouths will be the death of your campaign. You three represent the opposite of what basic America is all about. Your welfare state and crooks in high places crowd aren't the real America.

Maybe you should have aborted your son and then we would have one less lawyer.

Joe Biden is the type of person who sees crap in front of them and steps in it anyway. Keep stepping Joe.

Biden could limbo under a snake. Whatever he was years ago, today he's the result of 35 years of adaptation to the dumbest, most alienated and dysfunctional "family" in America, the Democrat Party.

Again as the father of a Down Syndrome I found it despicable to watch Biden even saying anything about parents with a Down or any other mentally and/or physically child. He should slither back into whatever hole he crawled out of. I have seen it several times today.

I can't wait for the VP debate and I can't wait to see biden pulling out his hair-plugs in frustration because he couldn't lay a glove on her. He says he has debated Olympia Snow, Barbara Murkowski, ...well how hard is that they both agree with this numb-nutted pants wetter.

She'll kick his flat-ass.

Cheryl, he can't help himself hahahahaha When he opens his mouth he has to say stupid things.

Yes he is a moron.

Posted by: Wild Thing at September 10, 2008 07:31 PM

Mark, isn't that crazy, they could still make remarks about McCain without making it all about Bush. One would think some of the not so left dems would be sick of hearing about it.

Good one Mark...they should do this.

"Maybe they should be called the party of death. Because they sure as hell are not for life."

Jim hahahahha good one!!!!

That would make a funny sticker. haha

Posted by: Wild Thing at September 10, 2008 07:43 PM

Tom, yesssss!!

Their excuse that it is all about choice is lost when they are so big on death and like Obama that wants to kill a baby if it somehow like a miracle stays alive after an abortion. OH just the thought of that is so horrible it makes me cry every single time I think about it.

Posted by: Wild Thing at September 10, 2008 07:47 PM

Les, good way to put it. hahaa yes he sure does.

Posted by: Wild Thing at September 10, 2008 07:49 PM

Rhod that is a great description. And the limbo under a snake is perfect to say how low he is.

Posted by: Wild Thing at September 10, 2008 07:51 PM

Bob yessss he should and never come out again. There is absoltuely no excuse for this kind of thing from him or anyone.

Posted by: Wild Thing at September 10, 2008 07:55 PM

Mark, me too, I think the VP debate will be the most watched ever in history.
