“Look, the Taliban per se is not our enemy.”

At one time somebody tried to develop an app that would create it’s own Biden gaffes but alas the programmers gave up when they realized they simply couldn’t keep up with the original.

Those words were spoken not by a Republican presidential candidate or figure but rather by your very own Vice President Joe Biden.

Then the VP then turned to the reconciliation process, saying, “We are in a position where if Afghanistan ceased and desisted from being a haven for people who do damage and have as a target the United States of America and their allies, that’s good enough. That’s good enough. We’re not there yet. Look, the Taliban per se is not our enemy. That’s critical. There is not a single statement that the president has ever made in any of our policy assertions that the Taliban is our enemy because it threatens U.S. interests. If, in fact, the Taliban is able to collapse the existing government, which is cooperating with us in keeping the bad guys from being able to do damage to us, then that becomes a problem for us.”

So Joe what is the problem then? C’mon you can say it. Is – lamb. It is the ideology behind these 6th century savages after all.

You would think with all of the material he gives us that one night SNL would devote an entire episode to just repeating his lines but alas it is far more useful to them to make of quotes and then imprint them so firmly in the American psyche that people no longer separate fact from fiction.
