What’s Up, Joe?

Posted by vicepresidents takes a look at what Vice President Biden has been up to lately…

Gun Control Clarification

In a “Fireside Google+ Hangout” the Vice President clarified his position on gun control, stating that it’s not so much the assault rifle as it is the high cartridge capacity that worries him.

“More people out there get shot with a Glock that has cartridges in [high-capacity magazines],” said Biden, who is chairing the committee on gun control. “I’m much less concerned, quite frankly, with what you’d call an ‘assault weapon’ than I am with magazines, and the number of rounds that can be held in a magazine.”

Joe Biden: Doomsday Prepper?

For the record, shotguns should be your weapon of choice if you need to protect your family, says the VP.

“A shotgun will keep you a lot safer — a double-barreled shotgun — than an assault weapon in somebody’s hand who doesn’t know how to use it, even one who does know how to use it. You know, it’s harder to use an assault weapon to hit something than it is a shotgun,” Biden said in his fireside chat.

But then things got weird.

“You want to keep people away in an earthquake? Buy some shotgun shells,” he added.


K9 Catastrophe

tragic accident occurred at an event where Joe Biden was speaking. A secret service dog fell 6 stories off a parking ramp while doing a routine sweep of the structure. This was the first Secret Service dog casualty since the organization started the K9 program in 1975. A Wonkette satire joked that the VP wouldn’t run in 2016 because he “killed a dog.”

(We say, “Too soon, Wonkette… too soon!”)

Biden Tells The Onion, “Close But No Cigar”

The VP has publicly said he loves The Onion’s humorous portrayal of him. However, they’ve got one small detail about him all wrong. He’s not a Trans-AM type of guy… he’s a Corvette lover! Check out this official tweet from the Vice President:

Presidential Ambitions

The Veep misspoke at an inaugural ball on January 19th. “I’m proud to be president of the United States…” he said. (Freudian slip??) He quickly corrected himself by adding, “But I am prouder to be Barack Obama’s, President Barack Obama’s, vice president.”

Late Night Comedian Jay Leno later joked, “We love Joe Biden. But he made another one of his famous gaffes on camera the other day. He said he was proud to be president of the United States. Guess he forgot he wasn’t at home talking to the bathroom mirror.”

(For the record, we won’t be surprised at all if Joe decides to run in 2016. After all, he’s had the longest audition possible.)


If you believe the polls, Biden’s approval rating is around 48 percent right now. ABC News & Washington Post claim that Hillary Clinton’s approval rating is 67 percent among Democrats and that she is the “clear favorite” for 2016.

But has anyone SEEN her lately? This job at the State Department has run her ragged! She suffered from a concussion and blood clot just this month and left her post to get some R&R. Sure, she may be able to recover by 2016, but she will be 69 years old. Biden will be 74, but you’d never guess it by the way he’s been carrying himself.

Who looks ready to be President?

Just sayin! Besides, does Uncle Joe care what the polls say? Not likely!

Backhanded Compliments

No one can give a compliment like the Vice President.

“And everybody knows that if they don’t vote with her, she’ll make their lives miserable. She can exasperate the hell out of everybody and make them feel better for it,” he said at a New Orleans fundraiser for his former senate colleague, Mary Landrieu (D-LA) who is running for re-election in 2014. She’s persistent and tough, the VP said.  ”This woman has a way of doing things on the Senate floor that, if anybody else did it, would be exiled,” he added.
