    But all he is doing is whatever Obama tells him to do.

    It's theater.

    •  Biden is a lot of things (0+ / 0-)

      but he is most definitely a fool but then it's easy to throw darts from where you are as opposed to offering something more constructive.

      mittens=edsel. no matter how much money is spent to promote it, if the product sucks, no one will buy it.

      of maturation from specific segments of this online community but it is sad that this has so become the norm around here of late, that there is not even an eyeblink when you refer to the vice president as a fool.

      No explanation of your position, just he is a fool and it is rec'cd.

          My fault, I was trying to engage in an intelligent conversation with you in which you explained why you believed the vice president to be a fool. Obviously, you have a different approach/agenda in mind.

          Fuck it, never mind.

          •  No you weren't (0+ / 0-)

            You were all concerned about the dignity of the Office of the Vice President!!!!

            You think that is intelligent.

            I think that is stupid.

            •  I could care less about the office of VP. (2+ / 0-)

              I have no idea where you got that idea from.

              What I do care about is that lately name calling seems to be the approach du jour supplanting actual informed discussion of politics and policy. Shockingly, that is why some of us joined this community. We actually came here for the informed diaries that were longer than a comment and that provided links and data to the support the diarist's arguments. I know that you know this because I have rec'cd some of your better informed comments and diaries.

              My response was elicited because for some reason I keep mistakenly expecting to see a different standard of behavior and commentary from front page diarists than "he is a fool".

              •  You noticed that now? (0+ / 0-)

                Come on. You can have both and we do have both.

                This is silly.

                You were offended because someone called Biden a bad name.

                Honestly, who cares about that?
