Biden: It's Easy Being Vice President - You Don't Do Anything

Is this the kind of Vice President this nation needs? One who sits back and does nothing? Or has the Obama administration put him in timeout?

  • "It's easy being vice president - you don't have to do anything."


     Whoever Biden was chatting with said, "It's like being the grandpa and not the parent."


     "Yeah, that's it!" replied Biden.


     Biden spokesman Jay Carney tells POLITICO that the vice president was "obviously joking, as any review of his schedule and responsibilities would make abundantly clear."


    SOOOO, can the American people see and review his schedule?  I don't think ANYONE in DC should be joking about their job right now, do you?

  • Seriously Sweet. The Vice President of the US made $227,300 in 2009... If he can joke about his job, I think Americans should demand more accountability.

  • Especially in THIS economy....
    Perhaps the Obama Administration should put him to work instead of hiding him because of fear of his Gaffes?

    More accountability for WHAT? All the trips he made to teh MIDDLE EAST? or for a JOKE? Basically his job is to be there in case the President cant be there....O and BTW, aren't YOU always telling people to LIGHTEN UP and get a SENSE of HUMOR and STOP being SO PC??

    Sure, but in this economy?  I don't find what the government spends funny.  When a man who makes over $200,000 and claims it is easy~is being paid by the taxpayers?  The same Taxpayers who are losing jobs and not spending because they are in fear of the future?


    I am getting sick of DC politicians spending and thinking it is a joke....

    Oh so we have a very expensive substitute for Obama, for just in case?

    Must be nice to live like a king while sitting on his ass, like his boss eating cake and drinking wine while the pheasants eat crackers and drink water.
