    As long as the GOP is run by the tea pardiots we are in big trouble. The old GOP wanted to "limit government" This new crowd wants to bulldoze government. I don't see why they would not be, after all if your purpose is to prove that government can't work.destroying it is a logical first step. All us regular folk have to do to help them is to stay home on election day.

    "to create a business climate"......What a joke. The last thing this administration is able to do is create any kind of business climate. I would be impressed if they could even figure out how to get themselves our of a wet brown paper bag.

    Does Biden even have a clue about what is happening in Egypt and that the radical Muslim Brotherhood will likely control it? Biden and Obama seem to think radical muslim regimes opposed to the US are better than authoritarian regimes that are allies of the US. Pure insanity.

    Please reprint all of the articles about the secret meetings he has held to show what a bilious hypocrite this hair plugged idiot is. Remember this is the same union toady that declared 2010 the summer of prosperity after he and his corrupt, inept, incompetent, union toady president and the contemptuous, corrupt, democrat liberal congress gave all that "stimulus" money to the corrupt criminal union bosses they protect.

    Biden should address the problems Greece is having with Muslims. They've already terrorized the legislature into giving them a free mosque that will cost millions despite Greece's money troubles.
