RUSH: Let's turn back the hands of time. Let's go back to the Grooveyard of Forgotten Favorites, to our audio archives, October 12th of 2011 in Flint, Michigan, at the downtown fire department. Here was Vice President Bite Me.
BIDEN: In 2008 when Flint had 265 sworn officers on the police force, there were 35 murders and 91 rapes in this city. In 2010, when Flint had only 144 police officers, the murder rate climbed to 65 and rapes, just to pick two categories, climbed to 229. In 2011, you now only have 125 shields. God only knows what the numbers will be this year for Flint if we don't rectify it. And God only knows what that number would have been had we not been able to get a little bit of help to you.
RUSH: So last year, our esteemed vice president made an outrageous remark about rape, blaming it on Republicans, and somehow this did not damage the Democrat brand. Todd Akin is destroying the Republican brand, right? Biden, oh, that's old Joe. That's just Joe. Now, I know there are some Democrats who wish Biden would be sent packing, but they are few and they are not afforded a big soapbox. That was October 12th. On October 18th, Biden went to Philadelphia, University of Pennsylvania. After a roundtable with police chiefs from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware, he was discussing the impact of budget cuts on their ability to effectively police their communities. And he was talking about the American Jobs Act, and Biden said it again.
BIDEN: Let me tell you, it's not temporary when that 911 call comes in, a woman's being raped, if a cop shows up in time to prevent the rape, it's not temporary to that woman. It's not temporary to the guy whose store is being held up and there's a gun pointed at his head. If a cop shows up and he's not killed, that's not temporary to that store owner. Give me a break, temporary.
RUSH: So in Flint, Biden essentially blames Republicans for increased rapes. A week later he goes in to Philadelphia and doubles down on it. Rank, utter stupidity, embarrassingly so, but nobody said that old Joe was damaging the Democrat brand. It's just old Joe. That's just Joe. The Democrats seem to be perfectly fine with stupidity at the highest levels of their party.
