    Labor Day: very confusing. Joey B was in Detroit with Big Labor telling them that “it’s time to take back America!” From whom? And hasn’t that sort of hate speech been deemed to be racist by our Attorney General? Also at the event, Teamsters’ President James Hoffa told the Labor Day crowd to get off their butts and head to the polls: “If we stay home, we lose. We’ve got to have turnout. That’s how we turn this country around.” Turn the country around? Haven’t you and your team been running it for the past 6 years? As I said, it was...

    Vice President Joe Biden railed against corporations in a combative Labor Day Parade speech in Detroit with union bosses and their members in attendance – speaking with such passion that even when he made up the name of a fictional historical American president the crowd applauded. Biden delivered his speech at the site of the demolished Tiger Stadium ballpark, standing onstage with local Democrats including embattled anti-Obamacare Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa Jr., who handed the vice president water and got first-name references in what basically amounted to a Biden stump speech.

    Vice President Joe Biden used the just-announced death of a former White House press secretary James Brady to call for more gun control. Brady was wounded during the 1981 attempted assassination of President Ronald Reagan, and subsequently became a much-lauded advocate for gun control. ..Edit.. Biden, however, made a big deal about Brady’s post-assassination advocacy, perhaps because’s he needs to rally support from gun-control groups prior to the 2016 nomination race, and ended his statement with a shout-out to a gun-control group.

    The U.S. should elect a female president "as soon as possible," first lady Michelle Obama said Monday. "You know, I think this country is ready — this country is ready for anyone who can do that job," the first lady said while speaking at a working families summit in Washington. Obama said the country had learned a president didn't need to have a particular race, gender, or background. "The person who should do the job is the person who is most qualified — and we have some options, don't we?" Obama said, drawing loud applause. While the first lady's comments...

    Can Democrats running in 2016 give the fake class warfare a rest? First Hillary claimed that she left the White House broke (and bought two mansions) and that after making $100 million she’s not truly well off. Now, never one to let his foot leave his mouth for too long, Joe Biden had to jump in and cry poverty. Hoping to establish credibility with the audience, which was gathered to discuss ways to improve working conditions for working families, Biden reminded people that he used to be the poorest member in Congress (in reality, the poorest member of the Senate)...

    At a White House summit for working families Monday, Vice PresidentJoseph R. Biden tried to relate to the audience by calling himself “the poorest man in Congress.” While acknowledging that he was wearing “a mildly expensive suit,” Mr. Biden said he’s not as wealthy as most of his peers in Washington. “I don’t own a single stock or bond,” Mr. Biden said to laughter. “I have no savings accounts. But I got a great pension and I got a good salary.” Mr. Biden and wife Jill reported $407,009 in adjusted gross income in 2013, including $230,700 for his salary as...

    Admits to lack of savings, desire to subsist on six-figure government pension Vice President Joe Biden plans on relying solely on taxpayers to fund his retirement. Biden declared that he had neither a savings account, nor any stocks to pay off his golden years on Monday. “I have no savings account, but I have a great pension and a great salary,” Biden told the crowd at the White House Summit on Working Families. Biden proudly admitted that he was “the poorest member of Congress” over his four-decade career in Washington. The line garnered laughs and applause at the plush Omni...

    In a feeble attempt to stem the deluge of illegal immigrants crossing the U.S. border, the Obama administration Friday dispatched Vice President Joe Biden to Guatemala to talk tough to regional leaders. Instead, the man renowned for sticking his foot in his mouth sent a decidedly mixed message. In meeting with Guatemalan President Otto Perez Molina, Salvadoran President Sanchez Ceren and senior officials from Mexico and Honduras, Biden said families would be detained at the border and that the “vast majority” would be sent home. But at a televised news conference later in the day, Biden said if the illegals...
