Skip to comments.Raddatz Visited Biden at His Residence in March

White House records reveal that the moderator of last night's vice presidential debate, Martha Raddatz, visited Vice President Joe Biden at his official residence on March 26, 2012. Raddatz is an employee of ABC News.
As the records show, that day Raddatz visited the VPR (or, the vice president's residence) for a "Women's History Month Reception." That record was released on June 29, 2012.
According to Biden's schedule released the day before the event, "the Vice President and Dr. Jill Biden will host a reception in honor of Womens History Month at the Naval Observatory."
There appears to be no pool report from the event, which presumably was widely attended, that might have recorded the details from the events.
On at least one other occasion, Raddatz visited the White House. According to records, that visit was on December 18, 2009. The reason for that visit is not know, though her meeting appears to have taken place in the Old Executive Office Building, and not the West Wing.

WHEN DO WE GET TO PICK A CONSERVATIVE MODERATOR?
WHY ARE THEY ALWAYS FLAMING LIBTARDS?
Why do we allow this? She was an attack dog against Ryan.
As my son pointed out last night, she directed most of her questions to Ryan thereby giving Biden lots of time to write notes and formulate his response. And of course she challenged Ryan far more often than Biden. This was patently biased.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Not only did that hag challenge Ryan far more, she teamed up with Biden to do so. It wasn’t a “debate” as much as it was an interrogation.
She should have disclosed this ... if she was honest.
Her entire first question to Biden was designed to defuse the foreign policy debacle and disaster currently unfolding. That set the tone. From there Biden was free to act like a local precinct captain.
Its like we give the dimwits a 50 ft head start in a 100 ft race.
Sure they are chain smokers and stop frequently to give each other pats on the back but still.
Not only that but it also allowed Biden to get the last word in on almost every occasion except a couple where she cut off Ryan before he had finished his point.
The debate was timed at 41 minutes for Joe and 40 for Ryan but Joe continually talked over or horse laughed, during Ryan's responses to the questions.
I hadn’t seen anyone mention this but Ryan ask to be called Mr Ryan instead of Congressman Ryan.
All through the debate moderator Ratass kept calling him the “C” word.
These people have no scruples...honesty never crosses their minds.
We need to pound the GOP and the presidential commission for change in moderators and formats...I’d like the names of those on the commission that agree to these debates and moderators. Anyone know? Please list names and party...news said some ‘old’ Republicans on the commission re debates but not sure who. I want to shoot them when I do find them....
There ya go! Every debate should start with full disclosure of who the moderators are and what circles they run in. It would be great if the casual audiences that don't follow politics as much as some of us were told that she visited Biden's house, Obama was a guest at her wedding and that he gave her (new) hubby high level job in his regime.
Every time Claire Shipman shows up on ABC news to praise the regime they should disclose that she's married to Jay Carney, official spinner, Angrier Mitchell should be introduced as Alan Greenspan's wife and so on...
I'd like to see disclosures put on scroll bars along the bottom of the screen when every they appear.
Her very first question was, to the effect....”was there an intelligence failure in Libya?”
Now such as intelligence failures is the most recent regime talking points after so many excuses have failed. So how comes, FIRST QUESTION, Radditz (probably one of the ugliest woman on the planet so we know she’s a liberal) asks the talking point?
The SECOND question was asked of Ryan, to the effect, “wasn’t it out of line for Romney to hold a press conference the day of the Benghazi attack?”...once again...LIB TALKING POINTS!
May God Bless this Radditz woman born so darn ugly she hurt our eyes. Ugly women are bitter women.
Not to mention she was a guest at Obama’s wedding and now we learn of these visits.
In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, dear Lord this very ugly woman, physical, got uglier with her past contact and lack of impartiality revealed.
So yeah, why don’t we see a conservative asking questions?
Inquiring minds want to know.
Always remember that horribly ugly woman who showed ugliness of all kinds last night.
Mock her like Biden mocked Ryan.
Don’t get me started on Biden.
This situation is not unusual in Washington DC. There are lots of social and celebratory events at official Washington sites. Most of official Washington could attend. A well connected reporter on the national stage would be invited to these, regardless of which party is in power.
Romney destroyed the marxist POS Obama in their debate.
Ryan had the opportunity to tell the American people. finally had the opportunity without the media filter to tell the American people how this socialist POS obama is destroying America with debt, with abusing power, etc. and how the media is covering for it. but he didn't. someone has to get these points to Romney so he says this.workforce participation lowest in 30 years, 6 trillion in debt which will destroy the country etc.
1. how Obama is destroying America with debt more government and abuse of power.
2. how Oamba has abused power with the czars, with the executive order passing the dream act Amnesty.
3. how the media is protecting Obama and pulling the wool over the American peoples eyes (why hasn't the media asked any of these questions I'm posing like when have the media mentioned the 6 trillion $ in debt that Obama has piled on America and how that debt will cause America to collapse because we can never pay that back.
Me ,a regular joe I would have told Biden, Your socialist leader Obama has piled on 6 trillion in debt on America. Now you detail exactly how we are going to pay that back. And that bird brain Biden would not have been able to answer. Heres a clue Obama, we will never be able to pay that much money back and we will collapse worse than Greece is. 6 trillion in Obama debt will crush us, the U.s. and no one can tell me it wont because we will never ever be able to pay that money back. And I would keep peppering that POS biden with that and other questions like how many jobs were there when Obama took over and how many now ? And how there are less jobs now with 8 million more in the workforce about 10 million deficit in jobs etc. many other questions.
I would have pointed out media bias and how Obama is destroying the U.S. with debt and big government and taking our freedoms, and its dictatorial executive order : You tell me how Obama has the right to act like a dictator. I ask Congress now to do your duty and impeach Obama for abuse of power for passing the dream act Amnesty for illegals over the objection of Congress and behind the American people. Have you no shame Obama? Resign now for this dictatorial act and for destroying the American dream, and the media for covering this up
Oh I can go on for 300 pages like this but whats the point. I hope we can still pull it out but Ryan had an opportunity and I hope mitt says this.
I'm a regular joe but I see all this abuse of power etc. and what this Ryan doesn't see that Obama is abusing power and doesn't call for impeachment to tell the American people so they support the impeachment? what the hell is wrong with Ryan . Am I much smarter than him or what ? what?
"This situation is not unusual in Washington DC. There are lots of social and celebratory events at official Washington sites. Most of official Washington could attend. A well connected reporter on the national stage would be invited to these, regardless of which party is in power."
She still should have disclosed this fact.
The couple times I noticed raddaz interrupt Biden were at times when it seemed like he was about to say something damaging to their campaign.
