Biden: Romney’s ‘new best buddy is Putin’

Vice President Joe Biden told the audience at a rally in Ocala, Fl. Wednesday that Mitt Romney and Russian president Vladmir Putin are “buddies,” according to POLITICO.

He made the comment in the context of talking about what he calls Romney’s flip-flips on Russia.

Biden said Romney went from labeling Russia our most significant geopolitical foe, “who up until recently he called the Soviet Union” he joked, to finding a new best buddy in Putin.

“All of a sudden, I found out his new best buddy is Putin,” Biden said. “Man, I tell you. It’s amazing.”

But no one has any idea what he is talking about and Biden himself did not explain what evidence he was referring to with that comment.

Biden’s allegation is especially out-of-the-blue given that Romney has been the one accusing Obama of being over-friendly with Russia, not the other way around.

“I’m not going to wear rose-colored glasses when it comes to Russia or Mr. Putin, and I’m certainly not going to say to him, I’ll give you more flexibility after the election,” Romney said in the last presidential debate, which was a reference to Obama’s gaffe in March where he was caught on a hot mic promising former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev more flexibility on missile defense after the election.

For a Vice President that supposedly specializes in foreign policy, this error is a huge gaffe on the part of Biden because it shows a complete lack of understanding of the candidates’ positions on Russia as well as U.S. and Russia relations.

It’s either that or a last ditch effort to smear Romney before the election, knowing that a solid percentage of the rally attendees are not going to bother to fact check his outlandish remarks.

Once again, the choice of Biden as Vice President of the United States boggles our minds.

    I was at the Biden rally in Ocala. Romney said Russia was our greatest geopolitical foe (false), before subsequently backing off from that grave misstatement. Biden referenced this reversal with “sarcasm,” something Politico and the author of this post can’t seem to grasp.

    Biden also said he was pleased to hear Romney’s endorsement of the president in the third debate, since he agreed with so many of his foreign policy positions.

    1. Dirjj says:

      No, Romney was clear. He said Russia was our greatest “geopolitical” foe. During the debate, he even clarified that it was with regards to them constantly working against us in the U.N., as well as in the various hot spots around the world.

      Biden is an idiot, and if the Media gave him 1/4 the scrutiny that they gave Quayle or Palin, he’d be the laughingstock that he is.

    The left can say whatever they want, whenever they want because they know they will never be held accountable by the MSM.
