Bittersweet is described as “both pleasant and painful.” I sure recall the pain from 9/11, but somehow Joe Biden remembers the pleasant times.

And just for good measure, he made his “solemn” speech today all about him. He’s learning well from his boss.

Vice President Joe Biden drew on the sorrow of his own personal losses as he addressed the memorial marking 11 years since United Airlines Flight 93 crashed into a Pennsylvania field.

“It is a bittersweet moment for the entire nation,” Biden told families, friends and dignitaries gathered at the memorial to the 40 passengers and crew who died  on Sept. 11, 2001.

“We wish we didn’t have to be here, wish we didn’t have to commemorate any of this,” he said, drawing on his own sudden loss, when his first wife and young daughter just before Christmas in 1972.

“I … know from my own experience that today is just as momentous a day for all of you, just as momentous day in your life, each of your families, as every September 11th has been, regardless of the anniversary,” he said. “For no matter how many anniversaries you experience, for at least an instant, the terror of that moment returns, the lingering moment of that phone call, the sense of total disbelief that envelops you. You feel like you’re being sucked into a black hole in the middle of your chest.”

Well, we’ve all had loss and tragedy in our lives. Just today isn’t really the time to make it personal. You would think he’d know better, but he’s Joe Biden.

    “Bittersweet”?? I know I shouldn’t get too working up hearing anything coming out of this imbecile’s pie-hole, but “bittersweet”? And this effing retard is “one heartbeat away”?

    Bittersweet? Really? Lincoln wrote the Gettysburg address on the back of an envelop. Did biden get this idea off of the label of a chocolate bar?

    “drawing on his own sudden loss, when his first wife and young daughter just before Christmas in 1972.”

    Here’s hoping he’s still not blaming the other driver. This SOB was repeating during the 2008 campaign the lie that he was a drunk driver. Biden isn’t merely stupid. He’s a vicious, opportunistic SOB. I’ve heard him speak in person several times. He never used “y’all” either.

    I agree that Joe Biden is a twit. But yes, oddly, there can be a bittersweet character to our memory of 9/11.
    There were miraculous survivors. There were heroes from sandwich shops and law offices. When the responding systems were in trouble, there were improvisers and innovators to get things done.
    The tragedy supplied the bitter. The response supplied the sweet.

    Right. A plagarizing hack who can’t count to one without screwing up (“I’m number#2 in line!”) is your idea of cool. I am impressed with your assessment of haters though. Democrats are the party of slavery, the KKK, Jim Crow, segregation, the occurapists and the New (and improved) Black Panthers. Yours is an expert opinion.

    The word is “tres,” fuckwit. So pointing out this imbecile’s stupid choice of words is “watching haters lose their minds (sic) over it.”? Sure, drama queen, sure.
