weeklystandard.com ^ | 8/21/12

Posted on 08/21/2012 4:08:50 PM PDT by Justaham

Vice President Joe Biden will be in Tampa during the Republican National Convention, a campaign official confirms.

"Next week, on Monday, August 27 and Tuesday, August 28, Vice President Joe Biden will travel to the Tampa area and other cities for campaign events," an Obama campaign official tells THE WEEKLY STANDARD. "Additional details on the Vice President’s trip are forthcoming."

The Republican National Convention will run from August 27-30 in Tampa.

The Drudge Report first reported the news that Biden would be in Tampa at the same time as the Republican convention.

They want to stir up a riot in Tampa while the RNC convention goes on. They will stop at nothing.

We need to do the same in NC. Romney needs to be there the day of the Obama speech. This is pure bullcrap.

Isn’t Tampa already under sharia law?

Wouldn’t it be fun if Sarah Palin showed up in Charlotte!

I don’t understand how the US government (that would be us)can be paying for what is essentially a campaign activity.

I thought even a sitting president or other official wasn’t allowed to use government funds (Secret Service, travel, etc.) to campaign. But I guess it’s different if you’re a Dem.

Thank them.

Joe's speeches get more votes for the GOP than the ones our candidates give. The man is a gaffe-a-minute.

Actually, it's a great idea. She could create a huge Conservative rally as a civilian, and thus no one could give her any crap for doing so.

Imagine 60,000 Tea Partiers outside the dem convention!

I heard Rush saying something recently about an idea someone had given him. He said it would be a very good idea for Paul Ryan to show up everywhere Obama was speaking, just afterward, to refute everything Obama had said, especially about Medicare. I suspect the Obama team thought this was a good idea and decided to start at the convention. Unfortunately, they sent Biden, who seems to help the Republicans more than anything.

Biden coming to Tampa during the RNC reminds of when Gore walked over and stood next to Bush when Bush was answering a question during the debates. All done to try and rattle him. The Zero campaign just wants to take away some of the headlines from the Repubs (what narcissists!), and know the liberal “news” media will accommodate them.

Joe Biden going to Tampa in 2012 would be like Spiro Agnew going to Chicago in 1968.

Most of the time the opposing parties are courteous enough to stay away from the others convention site.

I guess this shows the desperation the Democrats have.

If this actually happens, it’s pretty much guaranteed slow Joe will screw something up, and even the MSM will have to report it.

As Republicans/Conservatives, we should always be the ones open to hearing opposing views and opinions.

What a phenomenal opportunity this presents! The RNC should formally invite the Vice President to address the convention in a prime-time slot.

The only stipulation being that he do so without a teleprompter or written speech/notes of any kind.

I think that there's a better variation on that. Have Ryan sandbag Biden during one of his press availabilities in Tampa. Ryan just shows up and politely challenges Biden to an on-the-spot public debate. Just like Nixon (when he was VP) and Khrushchev.

The SS wouldn’t allow Ryan anywhere near Biden. Just like they’re screening those who show up to hear obama speak. That explains the small crowds.

How will Joe’s motorcade and security affect the people going to the Republican convention? When these bozos come here they shut down traffic in various areas and tie up traffic for mile and miles and miles.

Is this intentional to disrupt the folks going and their ability to get there?

The GOP should offer 50 bucks to everyone who gives Rimshot a “wedgie” (or a Dependie in Rimshot’s case) in Tampa.

I can understand people’s anxiety/anger over this. But the man is a doormat. A certifiable moron, ad infinitum. Who cares where he goes. He’ll only draw a couple of hundred folks at best, if he’s lucky, on a good day.

Hopefully, he’ll have a rally outside someplace when the hurricane sweeps thru town. He’ll blame it on Bush.

Like Bryce Harper might say

“THAT IS A CLOWN MOVE BRO!!”

If he shows up (you know the Secret Service probably ‘objects’ to this)

The R’s should invite him to speak.

Give the talk shows material for a few months.

The “R’s” have to think like the D’s, BACKWARD

No, because then 0bama dictates the venues of Ryan's campaign.

Speaking of Hawaii (or Martha’s Vineyard)... Notice Obama did not take a vacation this Summer. Biden did twice. Romney did. Obama must be scared to pieces he is going to lose.

Except for the real granite heads, every time Biden opens his mouth he pushes more voters into the Republican camp. Did the RNC invite him?
