Biden, Strickland march in Toledo's Labor Day parade
Monday, September 06, 2010
Democrats facing plenty of anger over the nation's economic hard times along with troubling poll numbers called in Vice President Joe Biden to energize party loyalists at a Labor Day parade on Monday.
Biden spent the holiday in this prized swing-voting state with Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, who is facing an uphill re-election bid just two years after Democrats here helped elect President Barack Obama and seemed positioned to lock up political control.
The vice president dashed along the downtown parade route, shaking hands and hugging supporters, many of them wearing shirts with the names of local candidates.
He seemed to energize the crowd, smiling most of the way.
"Beautiful dog," he shouted to a man sitting with a yellow Labrador.
Biden didn't make any public remarks during his hour-long appearance before flying home to spend time with his family.

Times must be really hard in Toledo if Rimshot Joe BiteMe can get them “energized”.
Was Biden drunk at the parade?
They look so happy together.
When Biden walked into Tony Packo’s, the customers thought that he was just another hot dog.
I love Tony Packo’s! Too bad it got polluted by that Fascist Fool!
Lucas county - where Toledo is located - has one of the highest unemployment rates in the state - still well-over 11% and recently rising.
Actually, I don't know if he went to Tony's place or not, but I thought that it would be a good "stage" for a Biden joke.
From the way this article is written, it sounds like BiteMe did the minimum he could get away with and then got the hell outa Dodge.
Wreckovery Summer. Yeah!
‘Puts’ and VeePutz .. we are so blessed.. NOT!
(Ooh! Does that make me a powerful Washington interest?")
There’s a big push on for Rich Iott, Marcy Kaptur’s opponent. He might actually have a chance. It’s strange that both those guys came here. Of course, it could be because of the guaranteed photo op of blue Toledo. Or maybe something different, considering all the vote switchers that took place in the county this last year.
