Hikind: “Biden Made Me Embarrassed To Be A Democrat”

dov-hikindNY – “Vice President Joe Biden’s behavior made me embarrassed to be a Democrat,” says Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn), who was shocked by Vice President Joe Biden’s behavior at the Vice Presidential debate on October 11. “In three decades as an elected official, I have never seen this type of public demeanor by a leader of my party or any other party. The Vice President’s demeanor at the debates was nothing short of appalling.

“The American public did not anticipate a lesson in disrespect when tuning in to watch the Vice President debate issues with his opponent. We were expecting the dignity that should go along with the office of the Vice President. We expected a senior member of the Executive Branch of our Federal Government to comport himself with seriousness and decorum.

“Instead, we watched the Vice President of the United States repeatedly behave rudely and disrespectfully towards his opponent. I found Joe Biden’s sneering at Paul Ryan contemptuous and shocking!

“Is this the type of role model we want for our children? One can be vociferous and outspoken about issues without mocking. That type of behavior crosses the line. Sadly, the Vice President sent a message to children and young adults everywhere that being crude and condescending is synonymous with being energetic.

“Mocking one’s opponent and laughing is not a sign of leadership-it’s a sign of disrespect. Repeatedly interrupting one’s opponent in a debate is not an indication of strength-it is an indication of an inability to clearly articulate one’s own position.

“Joe Biden’s behavior at this debate, which was watched by so many Americans, left me saddened and ashamed that evening to be a Democrat.”

  1. YOU SHOUOLD HAVE BEEN EMBARASSED LONG TIME AGO
    Start with clinton Is that as **YOU** stated … “That type of behavior crosses the line. Sadly, the Vice President sent a message to children and young adults everywhere that being crude and condescending is synonymous with being energetic.”

    DOV, its time you too woke up.
    The democrate party is against JEWS, BUSINESS AND SRAEL.

  2. Perhaps Mr Hikind forgot another Democrat in the white house: William Clinton, who attempted to get out of a lie by saying “it depends on what your definition of is, is”.
    If that didn’t make Mr Hikind ashamed to be a Democrat, perhaps he can explain how this is worse. Mr Clinton destroyed all ability for teachers and parents to teach their children to tell the truth.

  3. Joe Biden is a disgrace & should be fired immediatly! He was trying to make up for Obama’s lack of “energy” in the 1st debate. He was trying to get the media to stop talking about Hussains inability to answer ligitimate questions. Now Joe will go down in History as an old bafoon!

  4. The fact that this America hating socialist left wing Democratic party harbors such outright antisemites like “jesse jackson”
    al sharpton” etc.etc.that does not bother him,
    Shame on you Dov,how could you be a memmber in a party that harbors such outright jew hatting anti-semites,
    would you have been a memmber of the Nazi party in Germany in the late 30″s?.

  5. The media is bending over backwards trying to make Biden’s disgusting show seem positive. That’s even more pitiful than the show itself.

  6. Let’s not forget FDR who when asked to bomb the tracks to Aushwitz said, “We’re fighting a war, not saving Jews.”
    Jewish Democrats make me sick, not to mention the apparent oxymoron.

  7. HIKIND MIGHT BE EMBARASSED TO BE A DEMOCRAT BECAUSE OF BIDEN BUT, I AM EMBARASSED THAT A RELIGIOUS JEW CAN BE SUCH AN OUTSPOKEN DEMOCRAT! MR. HIKIND WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE.

  8. #6, you are taking it to an extreme. Are the Democrats hoarding Jews into gas chambers and have they killed any Jews? You sound moronically pathetic

  9. What nonsense! Did Hikind not know of the various Democratic initiatives to promote general public immorality? Our general society’s core institutions such as marriage have all been under assault by the Democratic Party. A man of principle would abandon the party of false principles.
