He led Obama into a historic debate flop, and now Axelrod is vainly hoping VP Biden's debate performance will pull Obama's burning nuts out of the fire.
So watch Biden get all fuzzy and teary-eyed about the middle class "burden"---- and he loves to snick and snarl about those horrid one percenters---but lookie here---the lyin' lowdown turkey doesn't mind pocketing Richie Rich's money. Read on.
NY POST PAGE SIX---Obama still has some friends in investment banking. Chad Leat, managing director and chairman of Alternative Asset Group Investment Banking at Citigroup Inc, hosted a $10,000-a-plate dinner for VP Joe Biden on Aug. 24 at his home---The Barnyard in pricey Bridgehampton. Leat is described in Hamptons Cottages and Gardens mag as a banker, dedicated equestrian and imaginative host, with an elegant, but hip home. On the table for discussion will undoubtedly be the Obama economy and jobs. Probably not up for discussion will be that in 2008 Leat's employer Citigroup got Obama's $45 billion government bailout in two installments. (N-o-o-o connection, of course--/snix).

As Paradigm chairman, Hunter Biden oversaw half a billion dollars of client money invested in hedge funds while remaining a lobbyist. Cooper chipped in $2 million for the ill-fated venture, which went down in flames amid nasty fraud lawsuits." (NOTE Stanford is now in jail but the Biden's got off scot-free.)
NOTE Oama put VP Biden in charge of the trillion dollar federal stimulus. Guess Joe's son and brother are gonna help him disperse the money.
Offshore Fraudster Stanford had links to offshore fund run by VP Biden's relatives / Reuters on Yahoo | 2/23/09 | BY Ajay Kamalakaran (Reuters) A fund of offshore hedge funds run by two members of VP Joe Biden's family was marketed exclusively by offshore firms controlled by Texas financier Allen Stanford, charged by regulators with an $8 billion fraud, the Wall Street Journal said.
