When Sheriff Joe starts imparting his “effective communication” wisdom to a captive audience overseas, you know it’s going to be good.

From Terry Jeffrey at CNS News, here’s the meat of Biden’s summing up of the importance of brevity and clarity in public speaking:

“And so language, the ability not only to master the ability to put your ideas into words succinctly on a platform to communicate ideas to your own people, it is even more impressive when you have the capacity to do that and communicate your ideas, especially as future business and political and moral leaders of the world in the language of the people to whom you are speaking.”

Here’s the video, just in case any of you want to share it with a friend you’d like to help become a better communicator:

Biden has now proven himself worthy of guest-hosting the now permanently scheduled “Resist We Much Comedy Hour” on MSNBC.

Another secret Biden shared with the Chinese leadership is that, in the American vocabulary, “fully understand” and “I’m not second guessing” translates to “I find it repugnant.” No wonder English is such a tough language to learn.
