Biden: Pirate Situation Getting Around the Clock Attention

Politico's Carol Lee was the pool reporter today for an Eisenhower Executive Office Building event with Vice President Biden about stimulus funds in which he also addressed the capture of a U.S. container ship captain by Somali pirates. Her report follows:

Asked at the end of his comments what the US was going to do about the pirates off of the Somali coast, VPOTUS opened his mouth to respond, when an aide shouted, "This way guys, out that door." He closed his mouth and put his head down for a second.

But then he answered, even as the aide said again, "This way guys, out..."

"We're not going to settle that here," VPOTUS said.

"Thank you," aide shouted in attempt to get pool to leave.

"I think what you should do is contact Jim Jones and the White House," VPOTUS continued. "This is being worked on around the clock since this happened. I'm not in a position right now (to comment)," he said.

"Thanks everybody!" an aide shouted.

Pool was ushered out of the room.

Yes, JakeD, I agree:

It is time for President Obama to "show the door to the saboteurs and the Dr. Strangeloves."

That includes YOU!

"When you see the abuse of power, you've got to speak."

-- VP candidate Joseph Biden, Aug. 27, 2008, Democratic National Convention

Attorney General Eric Holder, Asst. AG Tom Perez (staff, please forward):


THE EXTRAJUDICIAL PUNISHMENT NETWORK:

STILL VIOLATING HUMAN AND CIVIL RIGHTS OF INNOCENT BUT 'TARGETED' U.S. CITIZENS...

ON THE STREETS OF NYC, DC, PHILLY, BOSTON...

...AND IN CITIES AND TOWNS ACROSS AMERICA.


And federally-funded programs equip the "community gang stalkers" who are terrorizing their neighbors -- in the process, destroying their livelihoods and degrading their health.

When victims complain, they are told there is "nothing to investigate."

True -- because federal and local authorities KNOW ALL ABOUT IT.

Will the national press corps -- and Team Obama -- wake up and realize that democracy is being stolen at the GRASSROOTS?
