    I like Biden ... behind the scenes they say he knows his stuff.

    But when there is a camera on him ---- Oh Boy :scared:

    The guy is hilarious on camera. Not as bad as Menino, but close.

    I think he's a moron when talking about Education though. He said faculty salaries were the biggest reason behind soaring tuition costs.

    Hint hint, Biden, 2/3 of professors are adjuncts making sub-20k a year with no benefits. It's the Staff and management salaries and all the bull**** programs and departments to deal with raising 18 year olds who get less mature and dumber with every passing generation.

    At my school there were dozens of little departments and programs to help kids who were homesick, couldn't study, didn't know how to study, etc etc...

    I like Joe Biden personally. I think he'd be awesome to have at a BBQ, or on some mancation weekend with the boys. He's like a college crazy. Still, he's a moron when you consider the office he holds.


    They said the same things about Dan Quayle. Joe Biden doesn't look scared in front of a camera. Sarah Palin looked unconfortable in front of one for sure. Now, with Joe and his gaffes it's just joe being joe, and he's really "smaht" when the camera's not there. What else are they going to say.

    Look at the University of Massachusetts. You have to go all the way to page 116 to find the first sub $100,000 salary. Maybe Joe isn't as stupid as you and I think.

    Your tax dollars at work: State Payroll - BostonHerald.com


    I find it, well expected actually, but hypocritical to say the least, that with other tickets we constantly here (or heard) about how the VP on the ticket was a "heart beat" away from the presidency, as if to suggest how scary a prop that would be. Yet with this clown, we never, ever hear that from those same people. Just Joe being Joe you know.

    Yes, but notice the titles. The professors hold very few of those 100k spots relatively. Look at them - most of them are Vice Provosts and other administrative positions. And coaches.

    A professor making 100k is not a big deal anyway - PhD holders certainly are deserving of that salary. But the rest of them? Heh.

    Anyway those are the tenured ones. The bulk of professors are the 20k wage slaves.

    Biden would be great in one of the old time "Minstrel Shows" I'd love to see him Tap Dancing.

    Last I heard Republicans don't debate Democrats in primaries. Biden had one good line ( "noun/verb/9/11) that likely somebody else wrote for him in a Democratic debate when Rudy was not present. Thanks but whether you agree or disagree with Rudy's politics, the man was a well respected Federal Prosecutor and when it comes to smarts, I'll take him over the current VP.

    No kidding? Thanks for that clarification.

    Of course, what he said about Giuliani is absolutely spot on. Don't know much of what Rudy is up to these days after he flopped spectacularly in the primaries. Still, it's good to know he's clinging on to whatever relevance he can grasp at this point.

    One has to also factor in the retirement pensions which are much more generous than what is seen in the private sector.

    I find that "fact" pretty hard to believe, unless you're counting all those grad student teacher assistants working towards their doctorates as "professors."

    Do you have any sort of link to back up that claim?

    What in the world are you talking about here, Jack? Do you ever get tired of demonstrating to the group just how ignorant you are?

    What I'm talking about is patently obvious, particularly if you read the subsequent posts. Biden tore Giuliani a new one, and it came during a debate. If you want to troll...err...feign ignorance and assume I was implying the two were debating each other, feel free to do so.

    Speaking of ignorance, shall we revisit the polling outlier debate :)

    Jack, if I misunderstood you, it's really not a big deal. Nothing more than an honest miscommunication.

    However, I should point out that, after reading more posts in this thread, it turns out I wasn't the only one who misunderstood what you meant. So when 2 people responded to you, and both misunderstood what you meant, you look really silly saying "What I'm talking about is patently obvious."

    Jack, really. You really do look a lot less silly saying "Hey, I misspoke, my bad - here's what I actually meant...." than you do blaming everyone else.

    Well, the subsequent poster understood precisely what I meant. But, point taken. I'll try and keep things simple for you in the future.

    What in the world are you talking about Jack? There have been no other "subsequent posters". 2 people - and so far only 2 people - responded to your post which said "His ass is probably still chapped from Biden fileting him in the 2008 primary debates." (PF13 posted a response to Doc which had nothing to do with you).

    Both of those 2 people - 1 of whom was me - misunderstood what you claim you were trying to say.

    Seriously, Jack. I'm being your friend here and giving you good advice. You only make a total fool of yourself when you are so clearly in the wrong yet blaming others for your own misstatement. Saying "I misspoke, I should have been more clear, my bad, here's what I was trying to say" is really nothing to be ashamed of.

    Maybe someday you'll grow up and understand how admitting an obvious mistake makes you look much less foolish than blaming everyone else for your own shortcomings.

    :rofl: :rofl: Who is this phantom "subsequent poster" who knew what you were talking about, Jack? :rofl: :rofl:

    There's a lot on the subject.

    Personal anecdote, I didn't meet any 'real' professors until I was well into the 4000 level classes.
