Obama Team Keeping Close Eye on Biden


It was known for years that Vice President Joe Biden is prone to gaffes, yet Barack Obama, in his grand wisdom picked Biden as his running mate. Now, the Obama folks are keeping a close watch on what Biden says and does and have greatly restricted how the media cover the vice president.

Fox News was told that during the vice president's last campaign swing through Virginia, the one that included the infamous "chains" remark, Biden's office tried to edit pool reports that a small group of journalists put together for the rest of the media.

On two occasions, Biden's office tried to massage some of the information that was in these reports before they were emailed to a wider group of White House reporters.

On the White House website, for example, transcripts of Biden's remarks are largely absent. The White House has not posted a Biden speech -- though he's given plenty -- since mid-June.

The White House also reportedly prohibited reporters from writing about a recent Biden conference call until the call was over. A White House spokesman told Politico last month that the Biden quotes were embargoed until the end of the call to allow "journalists to hear the entirety of the vice president's remarks and get the benefit of having their questions answered -- before trying to condense a 30-minute conference call about a 20-page NEC report into ... 140 characters."

Here's a video report:

    Maybe they should keep him on a short chain (shackled)? LOL
    Just kidding. I didn’t mean that. I meant something else.
    You are taking me out of context. I was talking about something
    completely different. I think. Well, you know what I meant.
    Don’t you?

    Obama picked Biden for two reasons:
    1) Biden had served on the Foreign Affairs Committee, therefore he could lend some ‘foreign policy expertise’ to the rankly amature Obama administration.
    As it turned out, any expertise that Biden might have had was entirely unsuited to enhancing Obama’s Grovel-Ready Foreign Policy.

    2) Biden is dumber than Obama …

      I liked the comment by Guliani the other day about Biden being dumb. He said it 3 different ways in the same sentence. The guy is a full blown idiot – and vice president of the USA.

      Looking at the president and his stoolie you can convince your kids no matter how bright or stupid that they are that they too could grow up to be president. We have proof…

    Obama picked Biden because he said he is “trainable”. He has been trained and does his tricks on command to take the heat off Obama. He will keep his personally trained lapdog because he needs him to accomplish his trashing of America.
    Joe, Harry, and Nancy are the gem stones in his rise to total control and power. I hope and pray Americans are able to squash their destruction in November. God help us if he gets elected again.

    They are not dumb. They are doing exactly what they plan to do. We are all “useful idiots” if we allow it to happen.

      When Oloser says he has the most transparent administration, he wasn’t kidding! We can see right through him. And I for one do not like what I see. Go back to Kenya.

    When I was very young I was taught by my dad to have respect for the office of the POTUS. Even if I didnt like the person you still have respect for the office.

    With these 2 baffoons in control and the damage they have both done to our great country. There is no way I could have an ounce of respect to share between the both of them. They disgust me to the core. Sorry Dad!

    I am worried about how much more damage they could do after obummers loss in November to January 20th when the moving van arrives at the White House! God help us!

    It’s hard to imagine that most intelligent people will NOT vote
    for Obama. I don’t read/listen to ANY political ads — you
    can’t get anything worthwhile in 30-60 seconds so they’re just a waste of time.
    But I do my DD on the internet — reading both sides of the issues and make up my own mind.
    There’s no question that Obama has offered no solutions and in fact has made the USA even worse off.
    Bye, bye Obama…you stayed around much too long.
