There are several news items and articles on which I want to comment but I have been too busy writing code and watching my kids’ little league tournament play to find the time…
But for a quick entry here I wanted to pass along how Joe Biden proved once again what a horrible decision Mr. Obama made in choosing Biden as his running mate. He has given up the location of the VP’s bunker:
Eleanor Clift, Newsweek magazine’s Washington contributing editor, said Biden revealed the location while filling in for President Obama at the dinner, who, along with Grover Cleveland, is the only president to skip the gathering.
According to Clift’s report on the Newsweek blog, Biden “said a young naval officer giving him a tour of the residence showed him the hideaway, which is behind a massive steel door secured by an elaborate lock with a narrow connecting hallway lined with shelves filled with communications equipment.”
Clift continued: “The officer explained that when Cheney was in lock down, this was where his most trusted aides were stationed, an image that Biden conveyed in a way that suggested we shouldn’t be surprised that the policies that emerged were off the wall.”
What a maroon. Read the story here.
