Posted on 10/13/2013 1:52:50 PM PDT by Nachum
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 GUIDANCE FOR THE VICE PRESIDENT
Saturday, October 12 - Monday, October 14, 2013
The Vice President and Dr. Jill Biden will be at Camp David. There are no public events scheduled.
Monday is Columbus Day, a federal holiday.
But Biden's absence from D.C. during the government shutdown hasn't gone unnoticed.
Im glad that negotiations are going on ... Im disappointed that twice
we were close to a deal and the Democrats moved the goalposts, in light of the polling data, Republican senator John McCain said this morning on a Sunday show. Maybe we need to get Joe Biden out of the witness protection program.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Camp David is in the Catoctin Mountain Park which is national park service land!!! All Park service land is supposed to be closed!
Plugs took some light reading with him: “Finding one’s butt with two hands.”
Get out of our Park, plugs.
Get out of our Park, plugs.
Sorry for the double post, plugs.
So Honest John is seeking out his intellectual equal....
He really needs all those Secret Service agents at Camp David.
You couldn’t get in there with a tank.
“”as well as the Secret Service details assigned to the rest of his family””
Since when do other members of any president or vice president’s family get SS protection if they aren’t minor children or before the cutoff age of protection when leaving office. Does this mean his sons, their wives and their children get SS protection? I think someone better check their facts....
National parks are now the king’s lands. He doesn’t have to share it with the peons.
Where’s the Bamster?
joe biden is on a bender up at Camp David.
Drinking from 10 in th morning til 11 at night when he passes out drunk.
Well, if it wasn’t for Biden all blacks would still be in chains... seems this is the least we can do... /s
Hitler enjoyed a lot of bavarian country retreats while the rest of the people suffered under him.
Just a parallel.
Biden has a full Secret Service detail? Why?
He hasn’t got a shred of anything in his pea-size brain that needs protection.
This administration is the more vacationing bunch of crooks I have ever seen.
How can they do so much damage do the country when they aren’t there?
Geez, what’s the real context of that picture.
Somebody call him stupid?
