    Despite the government shutdown, Vice President Joe Biden is vacationing at Camp David this long weekend. He's joined at the Maryland retreat by his family, including his wife (Jill Biden), children, and grandchildren. The vice president is also there with "essential" government workers, who must work despite the government shutdown. That includes his Secret Service detail, as well as the Secret Service details assigned to the rest of his family, and other support staff. They are protecting the Bidens as they vacation -- but aren't getting paid because of the federal shutdown. The vice president's public schedule simply reads: WEEKEND...

    Vice President Joseph R. Biden said Tuesday the fight for Congressional action on gun legislation is far from over as he outlined a subset of executive actions the Obama administration has taken to reduce gun violence in the wake of the Connecticut school shootings in December. The address was simultaneously a summary of what President Obama has been able to do since the shootings in Newtown, Conn., and a rallying cry to remind voters and lawmakers that neither he nor Mr. Obama will let the issue fade from public memory. “We got a majority, but not the supermajority needed,” he...

    After two items last week on the cost of lodging for Vice President Joe Biden´s early February trip to Europe, other news organizations began to investigate further. Wolf Blitzer´s show The Situation Room on CNN uncovered a contract apparently also related to the same visit to Paris: Also on the receipt was $321,665 for a limousine company. Although CNN did not link to the document, the notice of the contract award for the limousine service was posted on the same government website as the hotel contracts.

    GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: $85 billion sequester quickly approaching and a debt quickly headed towards $17 trillion. Sound like reasons for concern? Well, not if you ask Vice President Joe Biden, the vice president saying the American people are no longer worried about our economy. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) JOSEPH BIDEN, VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: They're no longer traumatized by what was a traumatizing event, the great collapse in 2008. They're no longer worried, I think, about our economy being overwhelmed either by Europe writ large, the EU, or China somehow swallowing up every bit of innovation...

    ABC reporter Arlette Saenz reported for The Note on Joe Biden’s speech Sunday in the Green Bay area, including this statement: "In Afghanistan, we have lost 1,980 fallen angels as of yesterday, and I’m precise because every single one of those lives deserves to be recognized. Wrong: The U.S. death toll in Afghanistan at the end of August was 2,101. Biden somehow subtracted from the Defense Department count, ignoring three civilian casualties and 118 soldiers who died elsewhere after medical evaluation. Did they not deserve to be recognized? Saenz led with Biden attacking Paul Ryan for failing to admit in...

    A glorious return to the spotlight for Stephanie Cutter, who canceled her weekend appearances on national news shows after she got caught lying about Team O’s last big smear. The defense here, as always when someone in Obamaland says something stupid and unhelpful, is that Biden’s being taken out of context. Watch the whole clip, she says, and it’s clear that he’s talking about Wall Street deregulation, not slavery. Which is super, but it doesn’t remotely explain the sudden change in accent and diction. If he wanted to make a point about deregulation, however hysterical and unfair, he could have...

    CHICAGO – Chicago’s summer violence spree didn’t stop Vice Presidenr Biden’s wife, Jill, from lingerie shopping on the tony Michigan Avenue shopping district with full Secret Service detail and Chicago police escort. Mrs. Biden was captured on iPhone video exiting La Perla, at 535 N. Michigan Avenue, a high-end lingerie boutique Monday afternoon. According to the company’s website, prices for a La Perla nightie or sheer babydoll can set you back anywhere from $114 to a whopping $677. Earlier that day, the Bidens held a political fundraiser at the Chicago Cut Steakhouse with luncheon tickets ranging from $5,000

    According to the Web of Deception website, it seems that a former assistant to then-Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE), Tonya Baker Garvin, who went on to work for Biden's successor, now works for Dr. Jill Biden's charity, the Biden Breast Health Initiative--and used the same email address, telephone numbers and street address for Joe Biden's local Senate Office that she used in her official capacity as Secretary for the charity. That can be confirmed by comparing page 19 of this 2006 tax reuturn, with contact information taken from Biden's Senate website, viewable here. The evidence presented by Web of Deception seems...

    Whose job is it to grab the spatula and scrape Rosen’s flattened carcass off the road? (National Journal) — Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday continued the White House’s condemnation of Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen’s comment that Ann Romney “hasn’t worked a day in her life.” “That’s an outrageous assertion,” Biden said during an interview that aired Thursday night on MSNBC’s The Ed Show. “Look, I fought my whole career … to get to one point where my daughter is able to make whatever choice she wants and no one question it,” Biden continued.

Kosovo Prime Minister Hashim Thaci is schedule to meet with Biden this Thursday at the White House, according to the vice president’s public schedule. Thaci is accused by the Council of Europe of being one of the central players in a crime syndicate that smuggled guns, drugs, and human organs in run-up to the 1998 Kosovo war. The Guardian newspaper outlined the case against Thaci in a 2010 article: Hashim...

    White House spokesman Jay Carney carefully deflected Vice President Joe Biden’s Monday night declaration that the successful raid on Osama bin Laden’s hideout was the most audacious military strike in 500 years. “He meant the decision the president made… was a very difficult one,” said Carney, when asked about Biden’s gaffe. “When you’re president, you have to make the tough decisions.” Carney kept a straight face amid laughter from journalists attending the press conference. But Carney stepped back when asked if the bin Laden raid was more audacious that the D-Day landings on the Nazi-held Normandy coast in June 1944....

    First Obama and Biden wanted to work with what they called the "moderate Taliban." Even the Taliban thought that was ridiculous. And it was -- sort of like a chaste prostitute. The Taliban does not share Western values, goals, objectives. The Taliban's playbook is the qur'an and its stated aims. The whole idea of a moderate Taliban or a moderate Islam is false, and Obama knows it. So now, according to Biden, the Taliban is not our enemy at all. Never mind their role in 9/11. Never mind their hosting al-Qaeda camps and working with al-Qaeda. It amounts to surrender,...

    In the wake of an onslaught of criticism for Vice President Joe Biden’s comments in China about “not second guessing” the country’s one-child policy, the Obama administration has issued a statement of clarification. “The Obama Administration strongly opposes all aspects of China’s coercive birth limitation policies, including forced abortion and sterilization,” Biden’s spokeswoman Kendra Barkoff told The Daily Caller in an email. “The Vice President believes such practices are repugnant.” Barkoff explained that Biden was attempting to critique the restrictive system with his comments.

    Los Angeles – Vice President Joe Biden Tuesday proposed that the US government infuse $53 billion into a national high-speed rail network. The announcement was met immediately by deep skepticism from two House Republicans that could be crucial to the plan's success, raising questions about whether it can clear Capitol Hill. House Transportation Committee Chair Rep. John Mica (R) of Florida said previous administration grants to high-speed rail projects were a failure, producing "snail speed trains to nowhere." He called Amtrak a "Soviet-style train system" and said it "hijacked" nearly all the administration's rail projects. Meanwhile, Railroads Subcommittee Chair Rep....

    In late December, we scored Joe Biden for putting his foot through the Administration's carefully designed Afghan diplomacy. The Vice President declared to much media fanfare on NBC's "Meet the Press" that U.S. troops would start leaving Afghanistan this summer and that "We're going to be totally out of there, come hell or high water, by 2014." We're happy to say the Veep seems to be coming around. This week on a visit to Afghanistan and Pakistan, Mr. Biden reversed himself in a way that deserves as much attention as his earlier blunder. "It is not our intention to govern...

    U.S. Vice President Joe Biden snubbed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last night by arriving 90 minutes late to a scheduled dinner. Mr Biden's late arrival was in response to Israel announcing 1,600 new homes will be built in disputed east Jerusalem during his visit to the region. He sharply rebuked the Israeli step - which came just after the Palestinians agreed to a new round of indirect peace talks under U.S. mediation after a 14-month lapse.

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Under pressure to show quick results from the economic stimulus, the White House is taking credit for starting to build hundreds of rural water systems nationwide. But don't look for construction crews anytime soon. At most job sites, it could be awhile. Sometimes, a long while. It all depends on what the definition of "starting" is. ___ THE SPIN: Vice President Joe Biden said two weeks ago, "We set a goal of starting to build 200 water sanitary systems and wastewater treatment facilities in rural America. We've met that goal." The White House Web site says "We...

    Remarks by Senator Joe Biden--as prepared for delivery The Case for Change Eight years ago, a man ran for President who claimed he was different, not a typical Republican. He called himself a reformer. He admitted that his Party, the Republican Party, had been wrong about things from time to time. He promised to work with Democrats and said he'd been doing that for a long time. That candidate was George W. Bush. Remember that? Remember the promise to reach across the aisle? To change the tone? To restore honor and dignity to the White House? We saw how that...
