Biden Tells Translator, He Won't 'Bet on USA' Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Mon, Dec 9, 2013, 11:52 PM

Vice President Joe Biden is making a trip to South Korea where he issued a press release to explain that he will not "bet on the U.S." He realizes that US President Barack Obama is not worth taking a gamble on.

According to the Chosun Ilbo, "Washington is blaming an interpreter's error after reports here that gaffe-prone U.S. Vice President Joe Biden told President Park Geun-hye in Seoul on Friday that betting against the U.S. is a bad bet, or words to that effect."

Nevertheless, Biden is now claiming he never said he would "bet on the USA," and is blaming a Korean translator who claims he actually said that Biden would "bet on the USA."

As reported by the Chosun Ilbo, "Biden's exact words were, "It's never been a good bet to bet against America" and America would continue to place its bets on Korea."

Ironically, the US State Department hired the interpreter in the first place.
