Vice President Joe Biden addressed the Georgetown University Law School on the impact of the US Senate’s apparent failure to act on the President’s proposed Supreme Court nomination, earlier today.
Joe Biden’s team decided to violate the rights of a reporter for the Orlando Sentinel. The Vice Kidnapper in Chief didn’t want reporter Scott Powers to mingle with the rich hoity toity liberal big buck donors at an Orlando Florida fundraiser for Democrat Senator Nelson.
Biden’s staffers locked the reporter in a closet.
Remember when it comes to the First Amendment and transparency, Biden is a typical liberal hypocrite. His crew locked up a reporter and the local paper wanted to try and cover it up. The reporter did take pictures of the room where he was imprisoned.
Any bets that no one will be fired for this?
The good folks of Brandywine Hundred last month voted not to name their new elementary school after Delaware's long-serving and once senior-senator and now vice-president, Joseph R. Biden Jr; instead, opting for the more parochial Hanby Elementary School.
Likewise, it's unusual to name anything after a politician or local hero until, well, they've passed.
For example, former Senator William V. Roth Jr's name was bestowed upon the new Chesapeake and Delaware Canal Bridge, a few years after his passing. Mr. Roth was instrumental in securing federal and state funds for the Route 1 bridge and project.
So too, did the good people of Delaware celebrate a great trailblazer and civil rights litagator with the naming of the City/County Building on French Street in Wilmington after the late Louis L. Redding (btw, he also has a middle school named after him in Middletown - Redding Middle Read more
There will be no school named after Joe Biden anytime soon.
The Brandywine School District internet voters have picked the name Hanby for their new elementary school. Hanby is the name of a prominent farm family that goes back at least to the 18th century.
Joe Biden was one of the choices for naming the school. Candidly, I was unaware of the internet voting process. I thought the decision was going to be made by the Brandywine School Board.
Kudos to the district for involving the public in this decision and of course kudos to those who voted in the process. The voters got it right on this one.
Now that people are forgetting the socialist musing of Vice President Biden, his soft approval in poll numbers are up. We are in a flash of good feelings except for the despised Nancy Pelosi. People like the tax and stimulus deal which is bringing hope and growth to the economy. The same polling has The Speaker with positive numbers with increasing favorable ratings. The President has been at 50% for consecutive days for the first time in a year. Good feelings abound for both parties.
I say don't forget. Vice President Biden thinks every great innovation came because of government. It did not. Most innovations came because government didn't hinder the brilliance of the free individual. The government has issued well over 7 million patents (the 8 millionth should happen in 2012) with at least 5 million coming from Americans. Now less the statists get confused, a patent is not a grant by Read more
Remember the old days when if one traveled across the country and you told people that you were from Delaware, folks would ask "And what state is that in?"
I know I got miffed back then. After all Delaware was the first state to ratify the Constitution. It was the state that started a nation. What's wrong with these people? Don't they study any history?
Of course now in the same situation people shy away from you as if you have the plague and plaintively ask "You mean the place Biden came from?' (Of course as we all know from the 2008 campaign, Biden is really from Scranton Pennsylvania. )
I guess for those of us who wanted a little recognition for our native state, we have learned a painful lesson. Be careful of what you wish for.
Yes, sadly now people nationwide know a little bit about Delaware. We are the dumbkopfs who continually elected an arrogant, big mouthed Read more
The White House is appointing itself "The Interrogation Czar" in yet another move that makes me wonder if Congress is ever going to step in and do some of the stuff we elected them to do:
President Barack Obama has approved creation of a new, special terrorism-era interrogation unit to be supervised by the White House, a top aide said Monday, further distancing his administration from President George W. Bush's detainee policies.
The administration has also decided that all U.S. interrogators will follow the rules for detainees laid out by the Army Field Manual, according to senior administration officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the decision. That decision aims to end years of fierce debate over how rough U.S. personnel can get with terror suspects in custody.

We have to spend our way out of bankruptcy said Delaware's finest. I guess Vice President Biden did not read the CBO directors blog.
Under current law, the federal budget is on an unsustainable path, because federal debt will continue to grow much faster than the economy over the long run. Although great uncertainty surrounds long-term fiscal projections, rising costs for health care and the aging of the population will cause federal spending to increase rapidly under any plausible scenario for current law. Unless revenues increase just as rapidly, the rise in spending will produce growing budget deficits. Large budget deficits would reduce national saving, leading to more borrowing from abroad and less domestic investment, which in turn would depress economic growth in the United States. Over time, accumulating debt would cause substantial harm to the economy.
The VP had a different Read more
