Biden given time-out, sent home to Delaware for the weekend

The 0bama handlers have apparently given Joe Biden a time-out, sending him home to Delaware for the weekend with "no public events scheduled."


Vice President Joe Biden is going home to Delaware.

The updated White House calendar for Aug. 17 reports that “in the morning, the Vice President will meet with senior advisers. Later, the Vice President will be in Wilmington, Delaware.”

“There are no public events scheduled,” said the 5:36 p.m. White House announcement, titled “Daily Guidance for the Vice President.”

Biden’s retreat home during the increasingly frenetic 2012 race comes amid increased criticism for his campaign-trail performance.

Biden was slated to share an uncomfortable lunch with President Barack Obama on Thursday, following his disastrous week on the campaign trail, which culminated with a racially inflammatory warning to African-American supporters that Mitt Romney will “put y’all back in chains.”

The flubs revived chatter about whether the president will drop Biden, and seek a substitute vice president to win the tough 2012 race.

Obama’s spokesman Jay Carney on Thursday provided a tepid defense of Biden when he was asked if the vice president would remain on the ticket.

“Yes and that was settled a long long time ago,” Carney said, before quickly changing the subject to Medicare.

Despite the vice president’s apparent benching, his wife Jill Biden is going back out on the campaign trail.

However, she’s only going down the road from their house in Wilmington.

    I sure hope that he still has his blanky so he can go home and pout.

    Apparently his extremely racist, lunatic remarks distracted from the regular racist, lunatic remarks they call the "0bama re-election campaign."

    A weekend to dry out and sober up again?
