    This is weird. I don’t care if they want to shake hands, but this creeps me out. How does Mrs. Biden feel about that woman sitting in her husband’s lap?

    • warpmine

      In reality, she’s thrilled his dumba$$ isn’t anywhere near her.

      • PVG

        Thinkin’ the same thing!

      actually it looked like she was sitting on a chair place right in front of him but scrolling down that kiss freaked me out a bit lol

      • http://www.facebook.com/mary.kilbride1 Mary Kilbride

        Even if she WAS sitting on a piece of the chair right in front of him…helloooo… that’s pretty inappropriate! Especially for a ::cough:: ::cough:: statesman… ick…

        And the man lifting Obama up?

        And, the kiss on the lips? Good grief!

        If they are so intent on showing themselves as just one of us…maybe they could stop behaving WORSE than us, and maybe we should just make them …just one of us in November!

      • Cindy09

        I just cannot fathom why she would put her chair in front of the Vice President of the United States. That is so inappropriate. And Biden bending over to touch her forehead with his. Really?? Some kind of magnetism there? The husband on the right does not look too thrilled, neither does the other guy!

        The kiss on the next picture is just “Yukky”… Kids are right to use that word!

      This so how the Chicago team operates, they go to the black and hispanic community, through preachers, leaders, entertainment figures, radio…. And tell them to vote for Obama , whitey wants to take down Obama cause he’s black and they’re scared to share the power

      The white vote all they need is no lower then 38% So they go to all the white areas, colleges, rual committees, send Biden , Clinton or Obama, playing up their ” regular folk ” fake ass crap, hoping dumb whites will fall for it agian

      Because nothing say stupid like voting for Zobama 2. 0.

  • poljunkie

    I love the look on the bikers faces. HA.

    Who are these guys that are supposed to be running OUR Country?

    • KenInMontana

      Did you happen to notice the patch on the biker to “Biteme’s” left? The one on the left side of his cut (vest) just below the one that reads “President”, it says “Ordained Minister”.

      • poljunkie

        I saw that Ken.

      • poljunkie

        What’s your take? Biker bikers? Or just guys in vests?

        • KenInMontana

          Their leathers look “off the rack” fresh, too clean, no road wear. Patches are immaculate, no wind wear or “road stains”. My own vest (it’s not a “cut” as I do not belong to a club) looks ancient in comparison. The guy to the right of Biden is sporting a Notre Dame logo tattoo on his shoulder, a bit different for a biker. My take is they’re “weekenders”, not that there is any thing wrong with that, but they aren’t “diehards”or “1%ers”. If I were a betting man, I would say that the odds are better than even that they belong to a Christian MC or Motorcycle Ministry, we have a couple that are local here, nice folks and the tend towards being Conservative Republicans (Which would explain the look those two guys are exchanging).

          • poljunkie

            Thanks Ken, I always value your insight. I didnt even notice the Notre Dame tattoo. Good catch!

            My hubbys vest looks old and tattered as well.

      I’ll be a little fair and make the point that Obama is lucky that that dude lifting his skinny ass up like he is a long lost daughter happens to be a fan. I wonder what was going through the minds of secret security at that moment.

Does anyone believe that the secret service would actually allow a guy to reach out and grab the president?

    Pic #2 – The look on Biden’s face was just so “icky”, if you know what I mean. Another one where I doubt the secret service would allow unless it was a set up. (The biker dudes didn’t look very happy!)

    Pic #3 – Hum, well we know Biden doesn’t respect our country, but now it seems he doesn’t even respect his wife.

    • MaxineCA

      No, he wants to repeal the entire Obamacare legislation and start over with reforms. Go to Romney’s website and see for yourself. Some of the ideas he likes and will include them in the new legislation, but he has no intention of pulling apart Obamacare piece by piece, as far as I can determine.

      • kong1967

        Although getting rid of pre-existing conditions sounds nice, it won’t work. I sure hope he forgets about doing that.

        • MaxineCA

          I don’t think getting rid or pre-existing conditions are a good path either, nor does Romney. After they repeal the whole monstrosity of Obamacare, they could put together a 10 page bill (or so) to include it in insurance plans. It’s so very sad when someone reaches their max payout on their insurance and it’s cancelled, what the heck do they do? Go BK? How very sad. Yes, it will raise premiums for all of us, but I’d much rather pay a higher premium for that than this BS about “reproductive services” the libs have been shouting about.

          • kong1967

            So the article (linked by AbiC) was wrong when it claimed Romney wants to keep Obama’s “no pre-existing conditions” part of Obamacare? I’ll be looking for him to talk about this in the future.

            I’m not sure about the max payout limit. That would suck to run out, but at the same time if someone lives to be 195 years old (lol) and they have a very expensive illness to treat, it would cost insurance companies an unreasonable amount. I’ll have to check this out.

            • MaxineCA

              There has been a lot of confusion on the topic when Romney says there are a few things he would like to keep in his HCR reform. When everyone was jumping all over Romney today, I simply went to his website to do a little research. It clearly states that he wants the whole thing repealed and replaced. After listening to Romney over the last several months, I guess I understand that he will include the pre-existing conditions and a few other good features in their reform bill.

              Common sense tells me there is no way in hell, they can rip apart the Obamacare 2,700 page monstrosity piece by piece because all of the sections, and subsections are so intertwined with other regs. (HHS has already put into place 13,000 pages of new regulations, and OBcare hasn’t even been fully implemented.)

              If anyone has been paying attention to Michelle Bachmann over the last few years, that’s exactly what she says needs to be done, full repeal and replace with common sense ideas. I believe that is his plan.

              • NotFan

                You can’t do pre-existing conditions without a mandate. Romney knows that, which is why there’s a mandate in Romneycare.

                • kong1967

                  Well, Maxine says he’s not wanting to get rid of pre-existing conditions. I sure hope not, because if he does then we will just have another version of Obamacare. It’s impossible to get rid of the pre-existing conditions without a mandate (as you said).

                • MaxineCA

                  You are correct. You can’t have thousands of folks going without insurance until they discover they have a major medical problem and then jump into the market and expect reasonable rates. They should pay a higher rate for taking that risk, not me. I feel bad for the people who have been responsible and have always been insured but they maxed out their cap on their insurance plan due to a catastrophic illness. (Everyone should check that out, even if your medical insurance is provided by your employer. There is most likely a cap on the amount of coverage.)

                  That being said, it ticks me off that illegals can walk into any hospital and get free care…. I won’t get started on that topic.

              • kong1967

                I’m going to have to take your word for it for now. I’m not so much a fan of “replace”. Sounds like he might be thinking of replacing it with Romneycare. Pure speculation, so don’t take it that I’m accusing him.

                Our system does need reform. Tort reform for one, which will send the Dems in a tizzy because many of them are crooked lawyers. I will be fair and try to give Romney a chance to show us what he proposes before I pass any kind of criticism or judgement.

                • MaxineCA

                  I’m waiting as well to see what happens, my friend. Tort reform INDEED. I think one of the things that ticks me off the most is that this is supposed to be a representative government by “We the People” not “We the Lobbyist, Big Business and Big Labor that contribute to keep you sleazebags office and help make you rich while you are there, as long as you give us perks back”.

                  Geez, we just have to start taking our country back in this election!

                • kong1967

                  Even though most of it’s legal, it’s still corrupt and not what our founding fathers had in mind. Just think how much money is tied up in all that, too. It’s no wonder we can’t get our politicians to do what’s right.

    • kong1967

      Ugh. The two things I saw mentioned in the article will raise the cost of insurance quite a bit. Pre-existing conditions are there for a reason. If he adds that to his own plan we’ll be back where we started because that’s why Dems had to make it manditory to buy health insurance. Why bother getting health insurance if you can wait until you’re really sick then pick it up? Insurance companies will be suddenly paying for $300,000 hospital bills from people that have only paid one monthly premium.

      Romney’s going to screw around and a lot of us will stay at home in November.

  • MaxineCA

    In case you want to take a break and cleanse your eyes, here’s a great short video reflecting parents living in Obamaland. Great satire, it would be funny if not so true.

      Ha! Loved it! Shared prosperity explained to a kid and still libs would not get it:)

      • MaxineCA

        Aside from the obvious redistribution of wealth great satire, I also thought it was humorous the music they were playing in the background was a theme song from a TV show that ran back in the 50’s or 60’s. when all of the TV shows taught family values, hard work, honesty, etc. Gosh darn….. it’s been bugging me all day because I just can’t place it.

    • kong1967

      Lol, that was great! You are right. It’s satire but it’s also true.

      • MaxineCA

        I have no idea who did this since there were no credits at the end, but I thought it was brilliant! Little subtle things, like the 50’s-60’s TV show music theme, when there were only TV shows that promoted values. Gosh darn, which I could remember which show it was.

        Secondly, I thought it was pretty dang funny that the parents seemed to be in the “evil” 1% by looking at their house.

        Glad you liked it!

        • kong1967

          Yeah, it’s the kind of music they put in old shows with family values. I can’t identify it, though. “My Three Sons”? Doubtful.

          Obama just might use this for his next “Julia” type promo. Liberal values.

      Being a ‘biker’ myself, 44 years a rider, I can say without reservation that you would be hard pressed to find a handful of bikers who would give the Impostor or Jester Joe the time of day.

      • MaxineCA

        Wow, I didn’t know that you were a “biker”. Have you ever heard of Cooks Corner? It is just one darn fun place to go (supposedly famous country wide). It’s just up the road about 10 miles from where I live. (I swear some of the Harleys cost more than the first house we purchased many years ago.)

        When they had a rally on the 10th year after 9/11, I could see all of the riders with US flags flying and heard their roaring engines on their way to Cooks from my upstairs bedroom window all day. It brought a tear to my eye.

        Great people watching, and always a friendly crowd. Here’s a couple of links for you:

          Thanks Maxine. Never been to Cooks probably because I’ve never been to California. This place reminds me of Earls Hideaway in Sabastian Florida where you’d probably find me on some weekends listening to great blues and enjoying the company of interesting people. Sounds to me like it might be time for you to get on a bike and ride.

    I’m willing to grant a mulligan on this…charity work should be bi-partisan.

    More on this story here: http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/09/09/obama-gets-a-lift-on-the-trail/

    “Mr. Obama said he decided to stop at the pizza place because of the work Mr. Van Duzer does donating blood, and urging others to do the same.

    ‘One of the reasons that we wanted to stop by is that Scott has been doing unbelievable work out of this pizza shop in promoting the importance of donating blood,’ Mr. Obama said.”

    • Galatiansch2vs20

      But as to the American taxpayer with Obama’s policies- you can’t squeeze blood out of a turnip. Do you suppose Mr. Van Duzer is trying to say you’re squeezing the life blood out of our small businesses, Mr. President and you are about to be carried out of office by people coming out in strength voting against you? Poljunkie’s comment answers that question- too bad.

    • kong1967

      Oh yeah, I’m sure Obama stopped by because Van Duzer donates blood. It’s a PR stunt.

  • NYGino

    Scott Van Duzer is the owner of one of the Big Apple pizzerias in South Florida. He is an honorable man who established the Scott Van Duzer Foundation which, through the years has been behind numerous charitable drives. He has raised tons of money for good causes. How the Great Destroyer was able to tap into this is beyond me.

    • kong1967

      After looking at the picture, I’d say he tapped it alright.

    • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

      Any good businessman knows that his customers are going to be from both sides of the divide. Choosing one over the other is a bad idea. Like Michael Jordan famously said, “Republicans buy shoes, too.” So maybe this guy is just as welcoming to Republicans? I dunno.

      Any Scoop followers using “Progressive” auto insurance? Not very many, I’d bet.

  • Nukeman60

    Here’s the difference between backing Obama/Biden and refusing to play their game:

    Restaurant goes out of business one week after Obama mentions it in speech:

    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/ohio-restaurant-closes-one-week-after-obama-mentions-it-in-speech/

    And muffin shop (Crumb & Get it) is swamped with business, after refusing to allow Biden to use him as a prop:

    http://tammybruce.com/2012/08/yay-crumb-get-it-bakery-business-booming-after-saying-no-to-biden.html

    Take your pick. Back them and go out of business, or walk away and prosper.

    We have SUCH class currently occupying our White House. But then I’ve come to not expect much more from Dems…. after all, Ted Kennedy killed a woman, Slick Willy used one for a humidor in the Oval Office, John Edwards cheated on a dying wife, and we have a congressman who solicited sex from a 17 year old boy off of CraigsList and then met him behind a public rest area to consummate the act. And they say Republicans “don’t respect women”??? Hypocrites. I can guarantee you right now if we had a Republican administration behaving like this, the Dems would do everything in their power to run them out on a rail.

    • kong1967

      It doesn’t even take a fraction of the same behavior for the Dems to demand a Republican step down. A Republican came forward and said he was gay and the Dems demanded he step down….and he did. Hypocrites.

      • NCHokie02

        Why did they demand he step down for being gay? I thought they were all about the LGBT community? Well as long as the believe the Democrat ideology I suppose.

        • kong1967

          Because our party is supposed to have better morals (and/or higher standards) and we are against people being gay….so was their reason.

          It wasn’t but several years ago. Maybe someone else can help me with his name.

      But the bottom line is that Obama is leading the country down a path that is contrary to our Constitution and contrary to what the founding fathers taught as small government is best for all. We can look at world history and see that big government is detrimental to the well being of people’s freedom. Obama must go in November-end of story!

    Lot of speculation about what is stimulating gun sales, though Democrats in the white house generally leads to increased sales as the public takes note of what cowards Democrats are..

    CNBC tries to smooth the whole thing a typical business melody over with:

    “Sure, about a third of it is politics,” said a Maryland salesman, who also didn’t want to be named. “But the majority are people concerned about safety. They are worried about crime and looking at the economy and no one having jobs. They want to be protected now. So they’re buying.”

    “The biggest new group of buyers now are senior citizens,” Larry Hyatt, owner of a North Carolina gun shop, said on CNBC’s “Closing Bell.” “Ten thousand Baby Boomers a day are turning 65; they can’t run, they can’t fight, they got to shoot.”

    The fact is, that regardless of what you think you bought the gun for or what you told your wife, or how you explain it to your girlfriend, guns are used to kill. Good people use guns not for protection but for prevention. Bad people use guns to intimidate, enslave and control you.

    And if you are buying a gun or adding to them and stockpiling ammo, you are not doing it because you expect Chinese paratroopers, or swarms of muslims smelling of dung invade your neighborhood. You’re buying them because you expect that some day you will find yourself in the sights of a gun held by another American. Maybe he’s a criminal maybe he’s some racist out to destroy you because someone with your skin color wronged someone whose skin matches his..

    But you didn’t buy a gun so that you can sleep at night. The last thing a gun will do is give you peace. Let me say that again, the last thing a gun will do for you is give you peace.

    How ridiculous can we get. Obama was lifted in the air by a restaurant owner, too bad he didn’t drop him on his head. But then again, with Obamas policies he was probably dropped on his head many times. Out with Obama and in with Romney.

  • wesmorgan1

    Tip O’Neill famously said, “All politics is local,” and this is a prime example. Toss around snarky comments to your heart’s content, but there are voters right now thinking, “You know, that stiff Romney wouldn’t even show his face around a place like this…”, and they’re going to be more likely to listen to what those folks have to say. Like it or not, that’s good politics.

    On the morality/decency/propriety question, were all of you similarly outraged when John McCain went to the Sturgis Rally and offered his wife up for the (usually topless, occasionally bottomless as well) “Miss Buffalo Chip” pageant? If not, why not?

    Seriously, folks, there are SO many issues on which we need (and deserve) serious discussion; why waste time on this attack-dog stuff?
