Joe Biden Drops F-Bomb During Health Care Signing Ceremony

By March 23, 2010

Follow me on:

Biden F-Bomb: This Is A Big F*cking Deal It was a moment of extraordinary triumph, a watershed event in American history that would likely be remembered as President Obama's crowning achievement. So naturally Joe Biden had to go and drop an F-bomb on live TV.

During the health care reform signing ceremony, Biden was caught on a live mic whispering to Obama, "This is a big f*cking deal!" (Watch the video)

Say what you will about our gaffe-prone veep, but when history calls, Biden can be counted on to commit a gaffe worthy of the occasion.

In fact, Biden's F-bomb gaffe now tops our list of the Top 10 Joe Biden Gaffes of All Time.

Schoolhouse Rock Parody: I'm a Big Fucking Deal White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs apparently agrees with Biden. He sent out this Tweet: "And yes Mr. Vice President, you're right..."

Republicans are jumping all over Biden for using profanity. But let's not forget the time that Dick Cheney famously told Sen. Patrick Leahy to "go f*ck yourself" on the Senate floor.

On the F-bomb scale, Biden's is not a big f*cking deal by comparison. While Biden got swept up by the historic nature of the moment, Cheney simply enjoyed being a doucehbag of a historic nature.

Update: Joe Biden joked about his "Big F---ing Deal" remark and shared Obama's reaction. "You know what the best thing about yesterday was?" Obama reportedly said on Wednesday. "Joe's comment." Biden said shot back, "If you thought it was so good, why didn't you say it?"

Way to go Joe. At least he didn’t tell a handicapped guy to stand up this time.

I wonder if the health care bill covers “Turrets Syndrome.”

It could be worse, ya know. Biden could have “Irritable Bowel Syndrome” instead.

So f**king what.
People are far to prissy these days.
Grow up…it’s only a word. They act like he pulled out a gun a shot somebody.

So when Biden says it at the Presidential podium it’s amusing, but when Cheney says it during the heat of an argument he’s a “douchebag”? I’m not following your logic.

Joe Biden is wacky and zany
But again he did something not very brainy.
He said a bad word
Just like the one that we heard
From that wacky and zany Dick Cheney.

WTF? Lighten up. We have had all the uptight, “christainity” in the White House that we can stand. “thou shall not use the F word” does not appear anywhere in the bible.
The baggers were much more vile with the language used during the HCR vote. I’ll take the F word anyday over that f-ing crap they were spewing.
