Up yours, Curt. It's time you dropped the Good German shtick for Biden.

With nine ad-libbed words at the end of a 27-minute speech, Biden created an unwanted distraction to his otherwise forceful remarks by calling for Russian President Vladimir Putin to be pushed out of office.

It was a remarkable statement that would reverse stated U.S. policy, directly countering claims from senior administration officials, including Secretary of State Antony Blinken,...

Biden’s line was not planned and came as a surprise to U.S. officials, according to a person familiar with the speech who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive situation. In the immediate aftermath of the remark, reporters rushed to find Biden aides and seek clarity on the president seemingly supporting a regime change in Russia...

“The speech was quite remarkable,” said Aaron David Miller, a veteran diplomat and senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. “This is one of those speeches where the one-liner in many ways drowns out the intent of the speech. Because that’s exactly what people are focusing on...”

Biden’s comment was particularly striking because his administration has taken pains to avoid even implying that regime change is a goal of the Western response to Russia’s aggression...

...there is little any aide can do when the president decides to extend his remarks and tuck in, almost as an aside, a declaration that he wants to see Putin removed from power.

These times are calling for a hero, a significant figure in the Democrat Party, who will open their mouth and speak the words, "Twenty-Fifth Amendment..."

...before the whole world is rubble.

    Viser and Pager are engaged in the nervous nattering and teeth gnashing that I mentioned soon after Biden said it. Biden said what every decent person was thinking.

    Now that Biden said it, so what? Are you worried about Putin's feelings? Are you worried that Putin will become an even worse thuggish dictator? Are you thinking that comment will start WWIII?

    You've been complaining that Biden hasn't ramped up the war efforts with a No Fly Zone, even though bombardment isn't coming from airplanes but from missiles launched from Russia and ships plus land-based shelling from tanks, etc.

    I don't support a no-fly zone.

    Of all the reasons to be outraged, Joe's comment scuttled the effectiveness of a very important speech, brainlessly, sparking a legitimate conversation among Americans and our allies regarding whether or not we're pursuing regime change. It deflected attention away from the statement about our commitment to NATO and to Ukraine. And, who knows what it will do to that psycho in Russia?

    Then, there's the fact that this is classic dementia behavior. You can be in denial about it all you like but no one with a sound mind would have made that extemporaneous remark in such an important speech at so critical moment.
