    If I had the overwelming schedule of the VP, I'd fall asleep also. Biden already knows the speech word for word, So what's the big deal. Just sayin

    What is the big deal? He is the Vice President, whether he knows the speech or not it is called respect to the President.

    Busy schedule, tell me who doesn't have one in the private market.

    Not sure if he was sleeping or praying. Either way its not like he was Reagan and making decisions with Alzheimers.

    Blah, blah, blah. This was not a speech about policy. It was a campaign speech. Pitiful.

    Do not criticize Comrade Biden. He sleeps on the job on behalf of the working class. Anyone who criticizes is an enemy of the people. Obama-Biden 2012, and NO ONE after that!

    I am noticing that every person in that segment of the video has their eyes closed. Are you sure this wasn't spliced video, part of it taken during the invocation of the Senate (prayer)? This is very misleading if you ask me.

    They all get more done Democrats Republicans when they are asleep.they have no smarts when it comes down to a honest day of work put them out in the real world and pay them for there work they would starve. This government is out of touch with the real working people. Time to get all of them out of office put someone that can do the job for under 80,000 per year
