Washington (CNN) - Joe Biden came under friendy fire during a summer-kickoff barbeque at the vice president's residence Saturday.
During the event for White House reporters and their families, the president's No. 2 was attacked with sqiurt guns by his grandchildren and by children of members of the press corps.
Soon, his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, and White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel joined in on the drenching ambush.
As part of the event, a quartet of the U.S. Navy band played country music and the Bidens provided clowns, games, and a waterslide for kids.
This is great fun for kids, we did this for neighborhood kids on the last day of school, they had a ball.
Gee, if George Bush had been attacked by liquid, it would have been yellow and only fitting for the peeing on the world he did.
They're still just ordinary Americans like the rest of us, too! Remember that! They are human beings. Our friends. Our neighbors. Biden is a good man.
It good to see the excutive branch has a since of humor
Darn...I thought some disgruntled person did it!
I didn't vote for the Democratic ticket in 2008, but I very well might have if Joe Biden had been heading the ticket. I have tremendous respect for the man and am absolutely certain he could take over the presidency in the event of a tragedy.

Is that how you regarded Bush?
Hey, I think it's great. Have nice summer lawn party. Good on ye, Joe.
Just had to have some Navy guys screw up their weekend for the VP's entertainment. Why wouldn't a boombox suffice? Who from Congress played the clowns? Was there a big oilslick at the end of the waterslide?
Cue the right wing hate squad with rants about how he should be hard at work solving blah blah blah.
Watch out for those hair plugs Joe. LOL
Live it up, Biden... you Buffoon.
There's folks been saying Joe's all wet for years. He is a regular guy and a father every man should emulate.
Hope all the narrcistic/pesimistic/unhappy people leave this comment section alone. It is GOOD to see something positive and I truly hope the downers do not show up here on this one. Such a shame to be so negative all the time...it DOES affect ones health over the long term...Have a happy!...Beau Colby
Nice to see his Grandkids playing with toys. To bad he doesn't care that kids in Gaza are not allowed the same enjoyment since Toys are banned.
Sounds like a lot of fun! We're just beginning to experience summer temps here and are very much looking forward to playing in the sun and water!
Hey, real Steve, as much as you try, you can't wipe away what bush did, we're living the results here and now. and the progressives are trying to move ahead past it but you regressives are trying your hardest to keep us mired in the slime your president dumped on this country. Obama and Biden are good men and i thank God the good people of this country elected them. your goon was a usurper and his il-gotten 'presidency' will go down in history as the worst ever. your standing up for him says a lot of things about you, none of them good!
That is why I love this guy, he is a regular,fun loving grandpa playing with his grandkids!
Grandchildren are cool.
Finally a politcian with a sense of humor. You Republicans must be eating your little hearts out with jealousy.
'Progressives like this thing called accountability' From this administration? HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA!!!!!! That's a good one. Thanks ThinkAgain, I needed a good laugh.
Imagine these children squirting Dick Cheney. Imagine Dick tackling and beating the kids...
This sounds like fun.
What isn't fun is the situation in South Carolina. Why are there a bunch of unruly, ill-discipled children running (or seeking to run) that state? It is an embarassment to the State, to the South, and to the county.
I'm glad he and his family are having a fun get together, but why this is news is beyond me.
I say lets take up a collection and buy those kids some bigger super soakers for next time !!
sounds fun and atleast something positive light to report of Obama administration!!
