Limbaugh Goes Off on Joe Biden, Says He’s “Deranged”
Radio shock jock blamed vice president for destroying nation’s economy.
To say that Rush Limbaugh is unhappy with Joe Biden at the moment would be an understatement. On his Thursday radio show, the shock jock accused the vice president of looking “deranged”— all because Biden appeared to take a dig at presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney during a speech in Ohio on Wednesday.
“My mother and father dreamed as much as any rich guy dreams. They don’t get us. They don’t get who we are,” BIden said at a manufacturing facility. That comment set off Limbaugh, who not only suggested that the veep was mentally ill but held him accountable for the state of the U.S. economy.
“So Joe Biden is off the reservation,” Limbaugh cracked. “Two days in a row now he’s gone nuts. When you see Biden’s face, when you see his eyes, when you see the facial expressions … well, I wouldn’t call it demonic. I’d call it deranged.”
Limbaugh, being Limbaugh, didn’t stop there. He accused Biden of looking “off balance, out of kilter, not all there in the eyes. It is the strangest, strangest thing.”
What’s stranger is that Limbaugh’s primary mode of attack is to suggest that Biden has a case of the “crazy eyes.” Sure, that’ll stop voters for casting a ballot for President Barack Obama on Election Day. It’s not his performance on job creation or rebuilding the economy but that his vice president may be demon-possessed or one card short of a full deck.

Limbaugh went on, “One of the theories is that Biden is genuinely fearful that they’re gonna get rid of him, and he’s doing everything he can to stay on the ticket.”
Don’t all politicians take every measure possible to ensure reelection? That hardly means Biden’s lost his marbles. In addition to accusing Biden of being touched in the head, Limbaugh made the outrageous claim that the veep single-handedly ruined the nation’s economy.
“You, Vice President Biden, are responsible for this destruction of the U.S. economy,” Limbaugh. “You are responsible for irresponsible debt creation. You are responsible for people all over this country thinking it’s over for their own kids and grandkids.”
Just how is Biden responsible for all of this when the national recession began in 2007? That’s more than a year before he and Obama took office.
