Skip to comments.Biden charging Secret Service for cottage rental
Posted on 07/31/2011 2:50:58 PM PDT by Nachum
The U.S. Secret Service does more than protect Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. the agency also pays him rent.
Since April, Mr. Biden has collected more than $13,000 from the agency charged with protecting him and his family, for use of a rental cottage adjacent to the waterfront home he owns in a Wilmington, Del., neighborhood.
Mr. Biden, listed not as vice president in federal purchasing documents but as vendor, is eligible for up to $66,000 by the time the government contract expires in the fall of 2013, the records show.
Officials say the arrangement came about when a previous tenant moved out of the cottage and the Secret Service moved in.

Imagine if cheney did this.
I have no idea what that house is.
I used to do my morning runs by his house which is located at Monchanin and Bucks.
I'll bet you have a job title too.
Do you expect folks to call you by it as if it were your name?
"Doctors" do. They introduce themselves as "Doctor" so-and-so.
The first thing you hear from them is a lie.
Ask them to show their birth certificate.
I'll bet their name isn't really "Doctor".
You really have been a snarky SOB on the threads lately, humblegunner. Seriously dude, push away from the keyboard for a little while and go have some fun. Or have a drink. Or stop having drinks. Or whatever.
But you really need to freshen up your outlook. I am seriously just trying to help. You sound miserable in every one of your posts lately.
p.s. How's my grammar?
So let me get this straight.
Everyone's supposed to ignore your terrible syntax, rotten grammar, incoherent ramblings...
...yet when SilvieWaldorfMD -- whether she hails from from Waldorf, MD; has earned the title; or both -- fails to include a comma, you assume she is presumptuous.
Frankly, you're the one who is acting rather presumptuous.
I mean, you have a username that about innards, yet one might just as easily assume you are what's within the intestines...specifically the sigmoid colon and down to the ampulla...
Yes, your handle sure describes you well: "Spewing ____"
Good advice on my outlook.
Not so much on folks using fake royalty titles.
I’ll never waver on that. But I’ll admit I can be a bit of an ass sometimes.
Just not on this issue.
Thanks for the honest criticism. Really.
Didn’t Dolley Madison die in near-poverty also (albeit due to her ne’er-do-well son’s spending habits, but still...)
I’m going to stop pinging you, although I should have pinged you to this one.
Well, you have to put "DR" in front of the user name.
Otherwise, it's equal to a ping to an ignorant peasant.
Don't you know "Doctors" are better than you?
Look at the titles, man! Bow the hell down!
>> “Doctors” do. They introduce themselves as “Doctor” so-and-so. <<
Some do and some don’t.
As long as they don’t declare themselves as healers, their lie is trivial.
Don’t let that “MD” title go to your head much, do you?
Silvie’s MD is for Maryland
Silvie is a sweet humble lady we all love and appreciate..
Why should we surprised?
No, he is charging us.
I am impressed with your immediate response though. Take care, FRiend.
Please continue pinging me.
This thread, along with my glass of Pinot and my TV turned on to the “Real Housewives of New Jersey”, is making for a very lively and fun Sunday late afternoon...
new meaning to the term “rent seeking”
We pay for his protection and he charges us rent for protecting him!
Knock it off, humblegunner! Enough with the negativity.
Priceless response. Carry on...
Muchas Gracias, Semper911.
There’s nothing like mindless reality television on a Sunday evening...
