Biden relishes role as ‘most involved’ VP in US history

Biden relishes role as ‘most involved’ VP in US history By Jon FROSCH the 06/02/2013 - 18:29

The notoriously unpredictable Vice President Joe Biden has evolved from an easy target for stand-up comics into one of the most influential vice presidents in US history. France24.com takes a closer look at a politician in his prime.

Recalling his 36 years in Congress, US Vice President Joe Biden told reporters in 2011: “In the good old days when I was a senator, I was my own man.”

But it is hard to believe Biden feels particularly nostalgic these days.

The famously loquacious 69-year-old politician with the inimitable silver hair and exuberant smile has indeed evolved from an easy target for political jokes into one of the most active and influential vice presidents in US history.

And though Biden, a former White House hopeful himself (he ran unsuccessfully for the Democratic nomination in 1988 and 2008), may have flinched before agreeing to play second fiddle to a man almost 20 years his junior, he now appears to be fully relishing his role in Barack Obama’s historic presidency. An article in The New York Times recently described him as “the one major Washington figure who consistently evokes a sense of thrill in what he is doing”.

And Biden has been doing a lot these last few months.

In October, he helped get the Obama re-election campaign back on its feet -- following the president’s feeble first debate performance -- by verbally pummelling Paul Ryan in their televised face-off.

Biden thinks he’s Dick Cheney, the “most involved VP in US history”.

And he was grumbling the other day about having to go to Iraq and Afghanistan because Obama is such a chickenshit.

Buffoon, imbecile, idiot, stupid, dipshit, liar, cretin, ‘tard....that’s “Plugs” Biden

“Biden relishes role as ‘most involved’ VP in US history”

Doesn’t anyone check spelling anymore?

This time they misspelled “de-evolved”

Yeah, what happened to “the Shadow President”?

This has some credibility to it, considering how little prepared was Obama.

He may be a tool, but he’s not delusional.

He’s using an all too obvious tactic to position himself for the Dem primaries in 2016.

I must have watched a different VP debate.

Clearly he feels that two morons are better than one.
