Joe Biden: I wish I had a ‘Republican kid to go out and make money’

Joe Biden smirking

At an Urban League conference in Cincinnati, Ohio, Vice President Joe Biden confided to the audience in a speech that he wishes he had a “Republican kid to go out and make money.”

“I should have had one Republican kid to go out and make money,” Biden said, provoking laughs from his listeners. “You know, so when they put me in a home, I get a window with a view. You know what I mean?”

“But my daughter’s a social worker,” continued the vice president. “Graduate school at Penn and runs an at risk program — at risk youth program — for kids getting out of prison and young men getting out of prison.”

Biden of course was referring to his daughter Ashley, who graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a master’s in social work in 2010.

The vice president’s “Republican kid” comment is yet another in a string of cooky utterances that have particularly characterized Biden as of late. He also recently made some awkward statements to progressives about homosexuality in America, labeled himself the “poorest man in Congress,” and dished out dating advice to a teenage girl.

President Obama might want to take back his assurance that Biden would make a “superb president.”
