Check in if you LOVE Joe Biden...

I used to think it was stupid when people said of a candidate, "He's the kind of guy you'd like to have a beer with" as though that was somehow an important part of governance.

But just let me say that having a beer with Joe Biden is officially on my bucket list. I love the guy.

And, Joe, I'm buying!

17. What's not to love about a fundamentally honest and generous person?

He's one of a vanishingly small number of "public servants" in elected office these days. He's almost a 'throwback' to the post-WW2 era when returning GIs saw, up close and personal, what happens when people with genuine and egalitarian public interest don't get involved in their own political systems.

Sometimes, in a democracy, we actually get better than we deserve. Biden is an example.

20. I love Joe Biden! He's real!

And he's also REALLY smart. Never forget that Uncle Joe was chairman of the senate foreign relations committee, which was one of the reasons that Obama picked him -- to give some foreign affairs experience and gravitas to the ticket. Joe would have made a great Sec of State. I think he was wasted as a VP, given that the 112th congress is simply fucked by the Party of Obstruction. Joe is not only a great democrat, but also a great feminist. He sponsored the first anti-violence against women act. Joe Biden was my 1st choice in the 2008 dem primaries, followed by Hilary, followed by Obama. If both Joe and Hilary decide to run in the 2016 primaries, I shall be sorely taxed to choose between them. But aren't we progressives lucky to have such excellent people on our side? Especially when compared to the midgets and liars of today's GOP.

It is true, but also look to what the problems he has had, and you can figure he is pretty much Superman as well. That is kind of guy I want to have a drink with, or whatever.

Didn't Harry Truman once say to the opposition that he wouldn't have to tell the truth about the RePUGs if they didn't keep telling lies about him?

From the NYTimes: "Senator Biden does not drink at all, and he is frank about the reason. ďThere are enough alcoholics in my family,Ē he said last month as he sipped cranberry juice on a train ride from Washington to Wilmington."

So I'll have a beer with Joe, and he can have a cranberry juice with me. I'm still buying, and not just because Joe would be a cheap date!

Say what you will about him, he comes off as genuinely friendly. Warmth in a VP? Such a concept for the post-Cheney era!

And Biden works well with others.

I thought he was the perfect pick for Obama in '08, and haven't changed my mind since. He's the perfect compliment to Obama, and I think helps the ticket immensely. I love his heart; I may not agree with every position he's taken (particularly on Iraq), but I believe he always looks out for the little guy. He's the absolute antithesis of the last VP.

Today's attacks against him are a desperation move and don't affect any Obama/Biden fan.
The repubs screwed up their choice again, so of course, as predicted and predictable as they are, today they are attacking Joe.

pathetic the way repubs/tea/libertarians act.

Mitt is definitely unhinged.

113. I met Joe Biden briefly a couple of times at the Denver convention.

He really IS the guy I would want to have a beer with--and I HATE beer!

For the sake of nostalgia, I'll put up a link to a post I put up on the old DU in the summer of 2008:
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=132x6699328#6700175

MAN did I get shit for posting that Biden was Obama's choice before it was announced!! But I couldn't say how I knew. I guess I can now, as most of the players have moved on. Here's what happened:

My younger nephew was interning with the Texas Democrats in Washington, and they were located right next to the DNC, so he knew who a LOT of DC staffers were. He was small for his age (then 17), and has strong Asian features (mother is from Japan). He swam every morning at a pool that was also frequented by some of the Congressional staffers. One morning, he was swimming, and two women from Biden's staff were excitedly discussion the impending announcement, probably figuring my nephew was some young child of an Asian immigrant who knew little to no English. Surprise!!

He immediately called me to let me know, and I posted, if somewhat hedging my bets, on DU. Of course, I didn't want to get anyone in trouble, so I said nothing of my source. My nephew is now interning for the US in a hotspot embassy in North Africa, having been a top student in Arabic in college, and Joe Biden is indeed now Vice-President.

How times change!

Some times though, I smack my forehead when I hear what he said. Simple mistakes which could have easily been made by anyone... but... for God's sake Joe, get some rest.

I don't imagine he's sleeping very well, or often. Everyone knows the smears against him are BS - even the republicans know it. Still... man, it's Virgina, not North Carolina. Shackles, not chains.. delivery, man... delivery. Reminds me of that joke about a Priest who drinks too much vodka before giving a sermon. (He was "thrown from his mule", not "stoned off his ass"..."We do not refer to the virgin mother as "Mary with the cherry"

Until a few months ago didn't really give him much thought. But, he has moved the national dialog forward, beautifully. I can see why Obama picked him out of a very large pool of qualified people. So, I guess that makes me a relatively new fan.

I prefer Joe un-muzzled.

I have always enjoyed and admired Joe.

He is well enough off, but he could have become extraordinarily wealthy considering how long he has been in politics. Money has never been a driving force for him.

His son, Beau, is another good guy. Keep an eye on him.
