Just try to imagine Biden trying to talk to someone who actually knows what he is talking about. It would be like a Navy Seal fighting a Cub Scout.

I can just see it now! Joe Biden talking to his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, praising the economic and business ties between the two countries:

Joe - "This is a big fucking deal!"....."No really, you cannot go to a Dry Cleaners or a Fish Market in the US unless you have a slight Chinese accent.... I'm not joking." But, you know, even if we do everything right, if we do it with absolute certainty, there's still a 50% chance we're not going to be able to pay you." "You know, I'm embarrassed. Do you know the Web site number showing how much we owe you guys? I should have it in front of me and I don't. I'm actually embarrassed." What do you mean? "I was an hour late, oh give me a f**king break."
"Am I doing this again?

In remarks on Friday, the Chinese vice president raised the issue of confidence in the United States and global economies, saying that confidence is more precious than gold. believe as long as we treat each other as equals and embrace mutual understanding and mutual accommodation, we will have even better growth in our business cooperation," he said.

He added that China will "continue to free its mind and stay committed to reform and opening up."

Biden said that enhanced cooperation with China is good for the United States, and that America has its own concerns about access to China.

"Only friends and equals can serve each other by being straightforward and honest with them about the perceived injustices or the perceived tilting of a playing field; and you have legitimate concerns about access to America. And I would argue we have legitimate concerns in reverse," Biden said. Even 1st graders would settle on a game of jacks or patty cakes. WTF? Our trade tariffs on Chinese goods are a joke,whereas their tariffs on our imports are 10 times the amount entering their country, Wonder where your job went? Taxes ain't got squat to do with it.

See Mr. Premier, if you get people from south of the border and form them into a union like we did in Vegas with the SEIU, and make them tons of promises, exempt them from healthcare laws pushed on the rest of America, they will vote for you again and again!

GREAT STORY HERE!!

BEIJING | Fri Aug 19, 2011 9:00am EDT

(Reuters)- U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, in China on a five-day charm mission, has worked hard with his hosts to inject a little amity into the sometimes fractious relationship, pulling punches but not his punch lines.

On Thursday, China's vice president and likely leader-in-waiting, Xi Jinping, met Biden at the Great Hall of the People.

"Good to see you again," Xi said. "I know you are very busy with national affairs at home."

"You ARE national affairs," Biden told his counterpart from the United States' largest creditor.

After on a stroll up the red carpet, Biden found a familiar face during introductions to the Chinese delegation.

"Remember what I told you last time: if I had hair like yours I'd be president," the 68-year-old VP with a well-groomed but receding silver hairline said.

Pleasantries out of the way, Xi and Biden got down to real issues -- shoring up prospects for Sino-American relations and offering a dose of optimism about the U.S. economy.

Then it was time for lunch. But Biden was chicken when it came to having guts.

Eating at a tiny Beijing restaurant renowned for its fried liver and pig intestines, the vice president balked: "Noodles or dumplings."

That meal for five, which included the new U.S. ambassador to China Gary Locke and Biden's granddaughter, cost about 79 yuan ($12), and seemed to have struck the right chord with Chinese microbloggers.

By noon the next day tens of thousands had weighed in on the lunch, many admiring the careful choreography to show how wisely Americans spend their money. Lend away, China.

After a good meal, it was back to business at the Great Hall, where he met with the Chairman of China's National People's Congress, Wu Bangguo.

Biden apologized to members of the Chinese delegation who had to listen to him speak "again and again and again."

He did not, however, apologize to the media.

Wu reminisced about the two leaders' last meeting in D.C.

"I remember I said to you back then that your office was exquisite, but not very big," Wu said.

"Very diplomatic," Biden quipped.

More diplomatic, anyway, than the Georgetown Hoyas and China's Bayi Military Rockets basketball teams, who ended a "friendly" match that night across town, not with Biden-esque jokes off the cuff, but with fisticuffs.

Best to leave the diplomacy to the professionals, who know the value of a little self-deprecating office humor.

"I used to have an important job when I was chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee," Biden told Wu. "I had a big office, large staff. Then I became vice president."

PURE JOE!!..it Proves the Vice President's job is not worth a bucket Of warm spit!!!...

Woof, Driftwood, actually "Idiot" in Chinese sounds a lot like "Biden". It's pronounced "Baichi" or Baidtchi". I'm sure Biden's counterpart is thinking about it.
