Here are some fun Joe Biden quotes:
“Look, John’s last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number-one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs.” –Joe Biden
“A man I’m proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next President of the United States — Barack America!” –Joe Biden, at his first campaign rally with Barack Obama
“[David] Axelrod really wanted me to do this on teleprompter — but I told him I’m much better when I wing it. I know these evenings run long, so I’m going to be brief. Talk about the audacity of hope. President Obama does send his greetings, though. He can’t be here tonight — because he’s busy getting ready for Easter. He thinks it’s about him.” –Joe Biden, at the 2009 Gridiron dinner
“Stand up, Chuck, let ’em see ya.” –-Joe Biden, to Missouri state Sen. Chuck Graham, who is in a wheelchair, Columbia, Missouri, Sept. 12, 2008

Getting older is an adventure. In fact, it can be a scary adventure.
“Old age is not for sissies.” –Bette Davis
I enjoy listening to the VP, Joe Biden, because he’s a funny guy. I’m not sure if he means to be but when he speaks it is an adventure, too. I have had my share of gaffes. But I’m not in charge of anything. Do we really want someone one heartbeat from the Presidency who may be having cognitive issues? The socialists are winning in Europe and there is no money for them to do their thing. The earth is supposedly tilting in a different way on its axis. There’s a lot happening and we need sharp folks to lead the way.
It’s a scary time to be old or to be young for that matter! My hope is that Americans will rally around the things that have helped us in the past. We ended slavery and now have a black man in the White House. That’s positive. But we also need someone who can rev up the economy.
Is President Obama the best person to lead us for the next four years? What about Joe Biden as his VP? And will the Republican be a better alternative? It’s time we had a real debate about it. Not a silly debate. We have had lots of those recently. Anyway, this photo started me thinking about George Washington and the places our country has been in the past almost 250 years. It seems, sometimes, like we have to hit rock bottom before we can go up again. We did that after the Civil War and following The Great Depression.
What will it take this time? My guess is that we will find out soon.
