With Biden seemingly “mouthing off” and Gibbs staying solid – the administration is showing support for both sides of the issue: those people who think that non-protectionist policies means we’ll be sending our money overseas (even though its coming from overseas) and those proponents of non-protectionist policies (the people who are providing us this money from overseas) who see this as potentially exacerbating the systemic problems hundreds of $billion of US farm subsidies already cause.

Clever.

We warmly welcome US goods to be imported.
Welcome again.

He tells it like it is, and thats refreshing amongst the other crooks in office.

Keep doing your thing, Biden and forever keep doing you!

Not only does Joe Biden say the things I am thinking, he is also right on. We have many laws and regulations on the books that require federal grant money to be spent on US-made products. A completely different animal, protectionism is high import tariffs that prevent foreign goods (say, Chinese steel) from competing in the open market. Foreign goods will remain able to compete for privately funded projects.

We seriously do NOT need to be sending our bailout and economic stimulus funds overseas!

He has a tendency to say what a lot of people are thinking, without ‘checking the party line’ first. Is that a problem? I don’t think so, especially for the person looking for ways to help the floundering middle class. There’s a great deal of difference between blunt and clueless and he’s real hard to ‘spin.’

With the best wishes!

I am sure the reporters are just waiting for the stupid remark so they can sell a few more papers. It will be a fun four years. I suspect it is because no one likes Biden. That rarely happens to a democrat becuase the media protects the “public” from the stupid things democrats say. But only the democrats.
