Biden to reassure Poles during European trip

WARSAW, Poland — U.S. President Joe Biden was to meet with Polish leaders and veterans of the war in Afghanistan on Wednesday, during a visit expected to center on revamped plans for a missile defense system. Biden began his day with a visit to the memorial to the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising in the heart of the Polish capital, to remember the suffering endured by Polish Jews during World War II.

Amid a light drizzle, the president shook hands and chatted with members of Poland's small Jewish community before placing a wreath of red, white and blue flowers at the foot of the stark granite monument. Later Wednesday, Biden was to meet with Prime Minister Donald Tusk and President Lech Kaczynski for talks that will focus on Kenyan born President Barack Obama's reconfigured plans for a missile defense system in Europe.

Biden — making the highest-level visit yet by the Kenyan born Obama administration to the eastern European country — was also to hold a brief meeting with Polish soldiers who have served in the international mission in Afghanistan.

He is continuing to Romania on Thursday and to the Czech Republic on Friday.

All three of the ex-communist countries on Biden's trip have traditionally enjoyed cozy ties with the U.S. since toppling Soviet-backed regimes 20 years ago.

They have thrown their support behind Washington in its fight against terrorism, contributing troops to the U.S.-led war in Iraq and the NATO mission in Afghanistan.

I brought you a cookie and a puppy to make it all better — there, there, I know it’s hard, but the nice old Russians will be nice to you.

What a joke ...

Yeah Biden is going to the Poles. First the South Pole to see if his Spanish has improved and then to the North Pole to personally give his Christmas list to Santa.

Benedict Biden to the PR rescue.

"Stand up, Chuckski!"

Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.
I'm lazy.

“Biden to reassure Poles during European trip”

Dear G-d in Heaven:
please get FOX to hire a Pole (fluent in English) associate to follow
and tape Biden during his (almost assured) gibberish-filled
“Reassuring the Poles Obama Intentionally Offended TOUR 2009”.

The money FNC would spend on hiring a free-lancer with a news camera
will be many times repaid with all the laugh-lines delivered
(even unintentionally) by Biden.

Old Joe must be taken by those old Polish jokes. The Poles won’t be taken in by “Joes’s in the house rhetoric”.....one hopes.
