Biden Makes a Sudden Dash to Ohio

by Keith Koffler on November 6, 2012, 5:17 pm

But no, the Obama campaign isn’t worried, it says.

Vice President Biden made a pit stop today in Cleveland on his way from Delaware to Chicago for what he hopes will be a victory celebration with President Obama. The Obama campaign claims the visit, in which Biden visited a restaurant with a mostly black clientele, was an “unannounced but long-scheduled stop.”


A Biden pool reporter said he could see Romney’s and Paul Ryan’s plane from Biden. The “long-scheduled trip,” you see, just happened to put Biden in the same city as Romney and Ryan.

Just yesterday, Obama campaign Press Secretary Jen Psaki dissed Mitt Romney for heading to Ohio today:

I will say it’s no surprise that Mitt Romney is headed to Ohio, or reportedly headed to Ohio tomorrow.  Without that state it’s a rocky road for them to victory — an insurmountable road, I would say.

Hmmm. It is indeed a rocky road to victory without Ohio. For both camps. But interrupting Obama’s schedule would have looked like something might be wrong with the Master Plan.

Maybe basketball in Chicago wasn’t such a great idea after all. That’s President Obama big event for the day, until he speaks tonight, when he may wish he’d put Air Force One on the tarmac in Cleveland too.

You’re right Keith. There is something wrong with the Master Plan. Both in Ohio and PA….should be interesting.

Really… Biden had no clue where he was -LOL

Maybe they hope he will get lost and never find his way home:-)

Hopefully Biden will be alert and oriented to person, place and time when wheels touch down in Chicago, no, Pittsburg, no Cleveland…darn. Line!?!

They must be getting data from the field and it’s telling them what many pollsters have been saying. This is honestly too close to call.

It screams that the Obama camp is worried….but it’s a little late to change their plans now.

I can almost understant the MSM’s protection of anything negative about MrObama, but everyone,right and left, (except the voters), gives MrBiden a pass on the most outrageous statements or indications that he’s suffering from a mental condition.
They react to his gaffes and racist statements with a shrug, ‘oh, that’s just ol’ Joe”
The man should have been encouraged to step down and retire.

I agree–he isn’t tracking. I have some exposure to this sort of thing with both Mom and my grandmother. People joke at first.

Elmer Fudd to the rescue….really?

AZ Granny November 6, 2012 at 6:32 pm

LOL, thanks for the laugh. It helped relieve some of the tension from the day. Elmer Fudd would be insulted though. LOL
