COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden is postponing his planned trip to Tampa, Fla., the site of the Republican National Convention.

An Obama campaign official says Biden is putting off Monday's trip in order to ensure that all local law enforcement and emergency management resources can stay focused on Tropical Storm Isaac, which could impact Florida during the convention.

I bet they cancel the whole thing. Isaac is going to send 2-4 feet of a storm surge right into the convention floor.

“Biden is putting off Monday’s trip in order to ensure that all local law enforcement and emergency management resources can stay focused on Tropical Storm Isaac...”

Did he really think they would focus on him?

That could sure happen.

And it’s o,k, if it does. These week long conventions defy logic. Way too much money spent, imho. Make it a one day event. (I think I must be becoming a geezer, lol)

Damn. I was really looking forward to watching Plugs pleading with their supporters to vote so they could win Tennessee.

I think its too much and too big myself, needs to be leaner and more brief. I think a message is being sent from somebody in a much higher position about this as well, of course mankind especially politicians never see signs from a heavenly source much less act upon them.

Probably the real reason Biden isn’t going is that he heard the bars will all be closed due to the hurricane.

Good point! If he were not one heartbeat away from the Presidency I would almost love Joe. He does make me laugh.

Nah, it’s that the ice cream truck will not be making his rounds. I understand Joe really digs the music!

No DinsosaurMedia TV coverage on Monday...that’s the real reason.

Biden was been getting some criticism for planning a Tampa trip when the police and local government were already stretched to the max - and this was before the possibility of a hurricane strike became a consideration.

The sitting president and vice president have the right to campaign. But this trip would not have been a campaign trip it would have been with the intent to disrupt and he would have been doing so on the taxpayers' dime.

There is no low to which the left will not stoop.

Does anybody else remember Obama crashing an interview with the Senator he ran against?

Wondering if he got 'disinvited'. Imagine him barging in with his entourage & what it would do to the city & responsibilities of law enforcement.

Obama & Plugs have no consideration for the inconvenience they cause as they tour around spreading their important propoganda.

They don't show up to help in disasters - but run around causing them!!!

They don’t want Biden wandering the streets, if he goes someone better pin his address and phone number to his shirt.

Glad I live in Texas so we don’t have to put up with either of them very much, unlike places like New York.

I didn't think of that...

My first thought was Biden's "leaked Tampa speech" and that his handlers wanted to make it more difficult to make a clip of him in Tampa proclaiming "Ich bin ein Tampon."

The announcement that plugs was going was probably a Democrat frat house type prank - head fake to begin with. Why would they send a moron to speak outside the convention hall?

I agree 100%. They are in a sort of desperation mode. It would be widely commented on were it not The One. You can not get any honest political commentary about him and his policies.
