Nairobi, Kenya (CNN) - Vice President Joe Biden visited the homeland of President Barack Obama's father on Wednesday and spoke before a group of university students in Nairobi, Kenya. The vice president began by introducing himself, saying, "Hello, my name is Joe Biden. I work for Barack Obama."
Obama has not yet visited Kenya since taking office in 2009, but Biden said the president "is anxious to come."
The vice president discussed Kenya's growth since it became an independent country and told the crowd that "Kenya and Kenyans have much to be proud of. But the full force of your potential - as all of you young students know - has yet to be released."
Biden is visiting Egypt, Kenya and South Africa this week. He will wrap up his weeklong trip at the World Cup in South Africa, where he will watch the United States play England.
Republican Family Value Hatred and Bigotry comments about how Obama should go back to Kenya in 3, 2, 1...
Oh no, we can't use "Kenya" and "Homeland" in the same sentence or the birthers will come back screaming and hollering...
Never mind that everyone keeps calling the President black all the time when he's HALF WHITE (as if it matters).
Visiting the birthplace huh? hehe
Joe, did you have time to check Obama's birth place or hospital in Kenya? Sorry just kidding!
Nice Joe visiting Baracks birth place what a story!!!!
I am proud of my Vice President for visiting my former Univesity. Hope he signed visitors book at Hall no.8
Kenya is a beautiful mysterious place; I've been there on several occasions.
Good Job, Mr. Vice-President going to RSA to cheer on Team USA at the World Cup!!
Although pretty big underdogs, I think 'The Yanks' may surprise a few people this time around.
wrong again biden. you work for the american people. so does obama.
We have the worst environmental disaster in history down in the Gulf of Mexico, and Joe Biden is on a PR tour in Africa?! This administration has completely lost touch with the American people. Stay in Africa, Joe. We Americans can solve our own problems without you.
Perhaps someone should inform VICE PRESIDENT Biden that he works for the PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES not Barack Obama. Obama is not king or dictator. Biden is an ELECTED OFFICIAL not a presidential appointment. His salary is paid by the PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES not Barack Obama. This man is an embarrassment to his office. His continuous gaffes are quickly getting old. God help us if he were to become President.
I was wondering where they have been keeping old Joe. I mean, it was so important for Obama to get him onto the ticket and then where did he go? Of course, Nairobi.
I saw a bumper sticker on a Cadillac yesterday that said "Somewhere in Kenya, a village is missing an idiot"- with the "o" being an Obama logo. Don't these people realize that things like this shows who the real idiots are- How could anyone with a brain take them seriously.
Please keep the vice president on the prompter . Africans can be very sensitive. I hope he has fun.
"Can they call you Joe?, Mr. Obiden"?
"Nairobi, Kenya (CNN) – Vice President Joe Biden visited the homeland of President Barack Obama's father"
I'm thinking more like Biden visited the homeland of President Barack Hussein Obama.
Even Michelle Obama seems to think so. On April 13, while speaking to a group of people Michelle Obama says.......
"When we took our trip to Africa and visited his home country of Kenya"
Ummmm. Joe Biden is... ADORABLE.
Too easy.... gonna just leave this one alone... lol
Kenya take Obama back to his home?
