Alot of these ‘campaign stops’ have either been fund-raising events...or speeches to unions.

Not alot of ‘campaigning’ to anyone who doesn’t have big pockets, or already plans top get time and a half to go vote for him.

Give him this: He spins like a used-car salesman. His lot's full of lemons. And "bamboozle" is his middle name.

 There once was a VP named Biden,
 whose gaffes could surely make a smile widen.
 In his mouth he kept one foot,
 but in his head no brain was put.
 On a train to nowhere he should be a'ridin.

This is from memory... Biden’s son was a lobbyist who made something like $1.8 million a year for using his dad’s influence. Someone said, is it legal for you to lobby your dad? And he said, if its my dad, I always send someone else from the office, so its legal.

When Biden decided to run as O’s VP, he made his son give up the lobbying gig, and he switched over to being a rookie stockbroker for something like $1.2 million a year.

After a year or so, I saw in the paper that he and his uncle, Biden’s brother, were being sued by the hedge fund owner for mounting a hostile takeover against the fund. So, while Biden doesn’t seem to have any money, his son makes millions off the Biden name and his brother has enough money to launch a takeover of a hedge fund.

Since then, if I remember right, the son is back to the lobbying game.

Since all these people are lawyers, and one was a lawmaker, I’m sure everything they do is within the strict limits of the law.
