TIME: C’Mon Man: Why Joe Biden Is Starring in Obama’s Reelection Campaign

(TIME) – "I love Joe," Michelle Obama said Tuesday on The Daily Show. It had come to that point in the evening–which happens on just about every late night program, just about every night when politics comes up–when the comedian made a crack about the Vice President. And Michelle Obama answered the way everyone seems to in moments like that. "I love Joe."

    Let's face it. The only reason people like Joe is because he has excellent air cover from the media. He doesn't know where he is half the time and if Crazy Joe were a Republican, the narrative would be quite different.

    The reason is the guy is genuine, tells it like it is, and speaks from the heart. This is an asset, especially when running against a spineless, flip-flopping, panderer like Romney. Biden does make the occaisonal gaffe, but I can not wait to see him go up against whoever Romeny picks, because Biden rip him pretty good. I think it would be particularly entertaing to see him debate Jaba the Hut a/k/a Chris Christie.

    Joe is the real deal! A straight shooter who doesn't put up with any "swift boat" lies from the neo-cons.

    Give Joe a big yellow hat and he'd really be a star.

    "I love Joe," Michelle Obama said Tuesday on The Daily Show......... Who doesn't love "Average Joe". He's always good for a laugh when he opens mouth and inserts foot.
