— Second lady Jill Biden plans to campaign in North Carolina on Friday after postponing appearances last weekend because of Hurricane Sandy.

The wife of Vice President Joe Biden will appear in Asheville on Friday morning and Huntersville that afternoon to discuss what's at stake in the election and encourage people to vote.

Jill Biden was supposed to appear in both cities last Sunday, but she said she didn't want to distract state and local officials from dealing with Sandy.

    Who? The wife of the vice president is about as low as you can get on the totem pole in DC. Other than going to parades and funerals she has absolutely NOTHING to do with anything at the White House. Truth is I think that the Dems just wheel Joe in for a photo op every now and then and the rest of the time he's either looking bored in the Senate or playing golf. Neither Romney nor Obama give a whit about North Carolina or our problems. We are a non-issue in this election.

    Can you say, 'gold-digger'? That's the only reason she's married to this clown.

    So what!! She's a very minor player-to say the least!! per baldchip

    ----------------

    She's a minor player with a full secret service detail that will tie up highways and air space in an area that is attempting to recover from a major snow storm ...

    or have we been so focused on Hwy 12 washing into the ocean for the 11 millionth time that we forgot about our folks in the mountains?

    baldchip....I'm telling you, if Pres. Obama is re-elected, Jill Biden will likely become the next first lady. Mark my words!

    I hope she is smarter than her husband and doesn't stick her foot in her mouth like he does!

    "Romney stays away and gets blasted for it, even though he is letting the people do what needs to be done without getting in their way."

    Actually Mitt had the local fire dept filling sand bags around his garage....gotta protect the wheels

    From the article: "Jill Biden was supposed to appear in both cities last Sunday, but she said she didn't want to distract state and local officials from dealing with Sandy."

    Ok, so Obama goes into the middles of the mess and gets praised for it. Even though it has to be known he is keeping people away from doing what needs to be done.

    Romney stays away and gets blasted for it, even though he is letting the people do what needs to be done without getting in their way.

    Sounds like this woman is more intelligent than Obama or the media.

    Hey! It's Dr. Jill Biden, thank you very much. Oh sure, she's a "doctor" of elementary education or something weak like that but that doesn't mean she's any less of a phoney-baloney blowhard like her husband and his My Little Pony hairplugs. Show some respect!!!

  • paddie Nov 1, 2012

    If Obama is re-elected, she'll eventually become our next first lady so show some respect people!
