    Dan Quayle misspelled a word, and the lib media harped on it relentlessly. Joe Biden is a human gaffe machine, and the same lib media all but ignore it. It seems like sooner or later, even some Democrats would come to understand that the country isn't served well by a dishonest media.

    Classic Biden quote on Obama: “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”

    "Biden's pretty awesome compared to our previous vice-presidents. at least he's not subverting our war machine to make companies he's partial to, and invested in, highly profitable."RockGuitar

    You must be referring to VP Al Gore. He fought relentlessly on green issues. Al got his way and governments undertook measures to counter the fear of global warming. Al Spendt a 8 years flying around the globe on Air Force 2 crying out "the world is warming" and ended up reaping over a hundred million, when leaving gov't in 2001 with a net worth of less than 2 million. Now that's a feat to spark envy by fellow Dem and Butner resident, Bernie Madoff.

    Is it a coincidence that amazingly Al Gore got filthy rich? It makes one wonder what his real motive was. Gore did not see a problem with this. “Do you think there is something wrong with being active in business in this country?” Gore told the New York Times, “I am proud of it. I am proud of it.”
