Oh Uncle Joe

I like Joe Biden. And yes, he speaks with a warmth that others do not have. But, at times…his precision is lacking.

Ok, he is a human gaffe machine. Latest example:

The former vice-president, whose son died of brain cancer in 2015, told supporters on Tuesday: “I promise you if I’m elected president you’re going to see the single most important thing that changes America. We’re going to cure cancer.”

His words were met with cheers and applause at the event in the city of Ottumwa.

I know, I know…this was a statement that was meant metaphorically as in “this is the type of thing we are going to focus on” and by no means a promise to “cure cancer” (which, in and of itself, a nonsensical phrase).

And he’d be running against Trump who outright lies all of the time.

Still..if he is our nominee I’d better stock up on antacid tablets ’cause he is going to give me some serious heartburn.
