Uncle Joe Goes Bonkers!

Sequester Schmester!

I'm starting to invent words for the identification of waste that seems to occur on more than a daily basis coming out of our nation's Capitol. There was the overweight lesbian study I reported on which was followed by the duck penis length study I hit on next. And lo and behold along comes our Crazy Uncle Joe spending over a million of our tax dollars on two nights of hotel accommodations on a recent trip to Europe. You member Uncle Joe of "Jill, take the shotgun outside and open up with both barrels into the air to scare that band of gang bangers away." Yeah that one.

Uncle Joe, along with Dr. Jill his wife, spent one night in Paris and one night in London and it cost us $1 million cool ones. Talk about living large and here we are going bankrupt and these idiots are out there spending money like a drunken sailor on shore leave? No offense meant toward drunken sailors. You liberals paying attention or are you just jealous that he is doing what you can't do?

Sequestration and The Show Goes On...

Isn't there one executive in this administration who believes in, or even espouses, fiscal responsibility? Most of us usually have our own Crazy Uncle ______ (fill in the blank) but we at least watch after him or have a paid caretaker to do it for us. I guess in this case they let theirs run amok.

Here's how it went down. First on February 4th Biden, Dr. Jill and assorted strap hangers and security details rang up $585,000.50 (can't forget the 50 cents) at the Hotel Intercontinental Paris Le Grand. That's a luxury 5 star haberdashery near the Louvre Museum. if my memory serves me correctly don't we have an embassy in Paris where Biden and his not so blushing bride could lay there heads for the night? Biden's little group grope required 100 rooms plus at the Le Grand. The Presidential Suite where crazy one stayed costs a bit over $3,800.00 a night.

To assure US tax payers that our Crazy Uncle Joe is only enjoying top shelf housing here's how the Intercontinental Paris Le Grand describes its digs on the Web:

“With floodlit views of the Opera House, this superbly renovated luxury hotel is at the heart of Parisian society. Opened in 1862, it defines historical grandeur, from Café de la Paix to La Verriere Restaurant, set in an 800 square metre winter garden. Elegantly appointed, the hotel’s boutique-style suites overlook stunning landmarks. Located … close to the Louvre Museum, shopping, theatre and banking districts, this luxury Paris hotel is an icon in the City of Light.”

Only the finest for Crazy Uncle Joe and his conspicuous consumption bride huh? Isn't that special...

So Then Off He Goes To London...

Now I have to respect The Daily Mail because it sticks to reporting facts and the truth. On February 5th this band on Biden misfits showed up in London. Isn't there an embassy there too? I'm just asking...

Someone grab a calculator please. The tab for the one night at the London Hyatt Regency went ch-ching for around $459, 386.65. Notice how they have the figures down to loose change. PM David Cameron reportedly got to have a few chuckles with Uncle Joe during that visit. I wonder if they talked about shotguns! Now here's a head scratcher for you. The London contract called for 136 hotel rooms for one night while it was 100 in Paris. Did they pick up some additional strap hanger baggage during the short trip across the English Channel or what?

Biden’s lavish spending seemed to elicit a response here and there. Here's what one US Representative tweeted which was on my mind as soon as I picked up the news reference the sequester and not allowing tours of The People's House.

“Still no WH tours, but VP Biden’s recent trip to Europe racked up $1mil in hotel room bills,”

This news brought out the Tweeters on Twitter!

Fraud, waste and abuse are alive and well in our nation's Capitol. File this report under WASTE and ABUSE. I think a reimbursement out of Crazy Joe';s piggy bank seems in order.

"Vote It," "Like"It, "Tweet" It, "Pin " It, "Share It" With Your Followers. Time to let em read it and keep reading it.


As Always,

What is this, Part 2 in the never ending "saga of crazy uncle Joe"? Is he related to Nancy Pelosi? You have to listen to her babble on this video where she says she is "March Mad"! http://nesn.com/2013/03/nancy-pelosi-doesnt-want-a...

Well done froggie. I laughed at Pelosi's statement about the tax cheats on the government payroll. It could make it hard to hire good people. What is her definition of "good" someone who doesn't pay their bills? Her hypocrisy never fails to amaze me.

FP - Even worse than this spending spree by Uncle Joe is the fact that so many on the left will defend it to the death. They see no problem at all with this type activity, and believe it to be something our elected Royalty deserves.

Just look at all the good things Uncle Joe has done for this country that more than justifies this outrageous expenditure.

Oh crap, I can't think of any, can you?

This is outrageous, Jim. Even dedicated liberals should feel some sense of shame. And like you, I cannot help but wonder who filled those extra 36 rooms that were required in London? Seems like being 'bonkers' is paying off these days.

I have been amazed the last several years at the accolades they shower on this man who is basically a walking gaffe. He gets treated as though he exudes great wisdom, yet I remember during the 2008 election they sort of had to pull him off the trail for a while because he was embarrassing them.

What would be the difference now and is he really going to try and challenge Hillary for the belt?

Barefootfae - Both he and Hillary are loony toons. I'll always remember her, "What difference does it make now?" She needs to ask that of the families of the four dead Americans.

Oh I agree and have not let go of the Benghazi problem. I fond out how mad it makes the left the last I posted about it.

Hillary is the more calculating. Whether The Party is going to embrace her this time round will be must see TV. They really ditched her with Barack and I think they would have been wiser to have stuck with her.


Mr Archer 3 years ago

Un-by-God-believable! Let's cut the budget where they want, on those nickle and dime operations, and continue to spend on things such as this. No wonder we are the laughingstock of the world. Get the hell out of office you career politicians, and let us get back to the business of running the country like a business. Where's Ross Perot when we need him?

Knowing this type of spending is bound to be reported to the general public leaves me thinking Uncle Joe just doesn't give a big damn! This story is somewhat of an extension of your "duck penis" story -- Uncle Joe is stomping his to death and doesn't seem to care -- Best/Sis

poetvix 3 years ago from Gone from Texas but still in the south. Surrounded by God's country.

He's crazy like a thieving fox. We need to send each of these crooks a bill for every dime they ripped off the taxpayer. About the extra, what was it, 30 something more peeps picked up crossing the pond... Sounds like the next breaking underage, teen prostitute scandal to me... just saying. But seriously, I wonder who those people were, where did they go, and so on. That might be very interesting. Meanwhile, Biden will continue to bend us over. 2016 is too far away. Why can't we do a recall now?


Stu 3 years ago

Get me my airbag. $1,000,000 for a two day trip. My Dad and I spent a week in London AND a week in Paris for a total of $5,000. And BTW, the taxpayers didn't have to pay a dime for it. We stayed in nice hotels, had the best food (which admittedly is not saying much in London), and saw dozens of great sites and exhibits. Of course, we didn't need the contingent of 100 body guards, but if Uncle Joe was so damn popular, why does he need them? Since we're running a $1.5 trillion annual deficit, why can't Joe and family vacation at Camp David? That place probably wasn't cheap to build, but at least it's already there, and the incremental cost of staying a couple days there probably isn't that much, at least by Washington standards. It's no wonder DC can't solve the deficit crisis; THEY DON'T THINK THERE IS ONE.

And even in these tough economic times, the left just sees no problem at all with this outrageous spending. This may have just been a test run on Joe's part. If nothing much is said about this one, his next vacation may be really expensive.

Had I read this hub before, I wrote my own, I would have instead just commented here.

I also thought of the Embassy instead of a hotel, and when there is no Embassy, stay on the plane.

"How do such people get to such high places?" "We the people" elect them only the "we" part of that excludes 70% of the electorate most of which just doesn't care enough to vote.

So let me get this straight ..... we take away tuition assistance from our military members because we can't afford it, but we can pay for a million dollar weekend for the VEEP, find out how fat lesbians are and research the size of duck genitals. ..... does Washington even have a clue of what priorities are? Wow!

Great read, this article. Voted up and sharing!

After re-reading and editing my own hub, "The Rise of Mediocrity", I kind of got part of my answer. We reward and praise mediocre results. Therefore, politicians do not care enough to do better simply because we, as voters, do not care enough to hold them accountable. You are correct though. We need to do better so that they will do better. Furthermore, I look forward to reading Part II to add another part of getting my answer.

The Queen's Riddle: Barack Obama met with the Queen of England.

He asked her, "Your Majesty, how do you run such an efficient government? Are there any tips you can give me?"

"Well," said the Queen, "the most important thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people."

Obama frowned, and then asked, "But how do you know the people around you are really intelligent?"

The Queen took a sip of tea. "Oh, that's easy; you just ask them to answer an intelligent riddle." The Queen pushed a button on her intercom. "Please send Tony Blair in here, would you?" Tony Blair walked into the room and said, "Yes, Your Majesty?"

The Queen smiled and said, "Answer this please, Tony, your mother and father have a child. It is not your brother and it is not your sister. Who is it?" Without pausing for a moment, Tony Blair answered, "That would be me." "Yes! Very good," said the Queen.

Obama went back home to ask Joe Biden the same question. " Joe, answer this for me. Your mother and your father have a child. It's not your brother and it's not your sister. Who is it?" "I'm not sure," said Biden. "Let me get back to you on that one." He went to his advisors and asked everyone, but none could give him an answer. Finally, Biden ran in to Sarah Palin out eating one night. Biden asked, "Sarah, can you answer this for me? Your mother and father have a child and it's not your brother or your sister. Who is it?"

Sarah Palin answered right back, "That's easy, it's me!" Biden smiled, and said, "Thanks!" Biden then, went back to speak with Obama. "Say, I did some research and I have the answer to that riddle. It's Sarah Palin!"

Obama got up, stomped over to Biden, and angrily yelled into his face, "No! You idiot! It's Tony Blair!"

...AND THAT, MY FRIENDS, IS PRECISELY WHAT'S GOING ON AT THE WHITE HOUSE.
