He will probably explain how it was a good thing for Ukraine to have been invaded by Russia...

AF1 is heading to WA 4/22, and a TFR shutting down local airports, within 30 miles of Paine field. So I will go boating!

Perhaps the plan is for Putin to laugh himself to death.

Joe the ‘rat is gonna help the Ukes with “anti-corruption” measures. Now I don’t care who you are, that there’s funny.
(But did he bring Lerner, Holder, Reid and other ‘rat experts in this area?)

If anything, Biden going to Ukraine might help to lower tensions a bit.

The Ukrainians will be too dumbfounded, and the Russians too hilariously laughing at what Biden is saying, to be able to do much.

Perhaps he’ll recommend that the Ukrainian army fire a couple of shotgun blasts.

Never fear, Joe is Near!

When Barack's in trouble
I am not slow,
it's Hip, Hip, Hip
and away I go!

But Joe, the Russians have grabbed Crimea and are on the verge of invading eastern Ukraine and have threatened to cut off energy supplies to western Europe.

I am a veep who never fails, I can't be bothered with such details.

Don’t know why they announce this now. Seems like a security risk.

The situation has become so tense that some comedy relief is required...

Hope Joe doesn’t screw up

The White Hut is in campaign mode.

Bagman Biden is going to pickup a campaign contribution.

Peace at any price is the message. War is obsolete so America is unable to participate in any activity resembling war. We must stridently voice our objections to any but peaceful, lawerly resolution of disagreement. Even those of us that got medals in vietnam realize that there are better and mor lasting methods for working through conflict. Surely there can be exchanges of words for money that will allow enemies to regain their missing or lost self esteem without using large clip assault rifles. The golden age of everlasting peace is at hand and all possible effort must be expended to assure the path

blah blah balderdash yada yada balderdash yada
