Say It Ain't So, Joe!

Yet another gaffe in Poland.

Mar. 19, 2014

You knew it was coming. While visiting Poland this week to “reassure our allies” in Eastern Europe that everything will be all right, Joe Biden dug once again into his repertoire of profound gaffes by blithering about another faux achievement. “Fifteen years ago, I was honored, as the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, to lead the fight for Poland’s admission into NATO,” he bragged. Only problem is, he wasn’t chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee: “Former Sen. Jesse Helms (R-N.C.) had been chairman of the committee at the time Poland campaigned to join NATO,” reports The Hill. “Helms initiated the floor debate over whether Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary should join NATO.” Sending Biden to address our allies was bad enough; giving them even more reason to fear strongman Vladimir Putin is hardly reassuring.
