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 Presidents 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?
“We need to do the same in NC. Romney needs to be there the day of the Obama speech.”
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.
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 don’t think he is going to like the weather. Neither will OWS.
Tropical Storm ISAAC
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.
What a CLASSLESS act!!! The Democrats are HILLBILLIES....ALL of them are HILLBILLIES.
I saw where they were going to have a baseball throwing clown dunking machine and I believe he is booked solid for the entire week.
Poor ole Joe , he doesn’t even know what convention he belongs at!
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.
Wow, more cowbells!
