“Now, Vice President Biden has graciously agreed to oversee the search for a new FAA official to keep on eye on these snoozy air traffic controllers. Anything you’d like to say, Joe? Joe?”


“Joe Biden's contribution to the discussion: wearing a shirt that makes an American flag with the president's tie."

    Joe Biden, "I must have dozed off during the President's speech...I don't recall him talking about raising taxes, or a 10 year deficit reduction plan, or...I must have missed the whole F****** speech!"

    Joe thinks it's comical that we're trillions in debt because he knows that "trillions" aren't real.

    April 14, 2011 at 8:26 pm |

    Obama: So... What do you all think about my plan on deficit and debt reduction?
    Biden: OH! I'll have to bite my lip on that one guys.

    As the bells ring out from the liberty bells once again, were all here as friends. Were appeled to ask. How can we ever silence the sound of liberty, were not always sure, although, were all friends, here to help eachother out from time to time. Watch a little sheen, and the bells toll. Were paid into equal rights. Equal joy. They're all proud to serve at home and if they wish, in any prospect they served. Choice.

    Joe Biden tries his best to stay awake during today's meeting after being caught sleeping yesterday during the President's speech.

    To prevent any further gaffes on the part of the Vice President, we've had his lips surgically sealed. It seemd prudent.

    April 14, 2011 at 8:07 pm |
  27. Patty Ca

    Biden: But Mr President, if I told the 1st Lady your burger & fries were mine....that would be lying

    April 14, 2011 at 8:06 pm |
  28. Daniel

    Is that a mic? Pointed towards me? Are you sure that's a good idea?

  31. Patty Ca

    President: Well Duh Biden, when the 1st Lady stopped you with MY burger & fries... Couldn't you say it was for you!

    Joe Biden appears just as presidential as Barack Obama in this picture - because the picture does not have a vocal cord.

    April 14, 2011 at 8:03 pm |
  33. Ed - Sidney, OH

    I realize Joe feel asleep at my speach. But at least he's getting better at NOT snoreing.

    April 14, 2011 at 8:03 pm |
  34. Patty Ca

    Biden: Mr President, I got you a double cheese burger & fries, but the 1st Lady stopped me at the door!

  36. Ed - Sidney, OH

    I would rather have a V.P that falls asleep from time to time, then a speaker of the house that cries ALL THE TIME.

    April 14, 2011 at 8:01 pm |
  37. Patty Ca

    I'm the President of the United States!...and I can't get one of you guys to bring me a cheeseburger & fries!

    "No, our shoes were American made from American beef hides," says Biden.

    "My concern for my people prohibits using this subject to light further fires among the media regarding the American economy. We will certainly take it under advisement and a report will be duly filed," says Obama.

    "Say you love me again," whispers Biden.

    April 14, 2011 at 7:58 pm |
  42. Daniel

    Although Joe's words often are short of presidential, he still has the demeanor down to a T, evidently.
