Why is is Biden always brings to mind the scarecrow singing "If I only had a brain" in the Wizard of OZ?



Biden Reveals Location of Secret VP Bunker
The vice president, well-known for his verbal gaffes, confirms at a dinner the existence and location of a secret hidden bunker that Cheney is believed to have used after the 9/11 attacks.

According to a report, while recently attending the Gridiron Club dinner in Washington, an annual event where powerful politicians and media elite get a chance to cozy up to one another, Biden told his dinnermates about the existence of a secret bunker under the old U.S. Naval Observatory, which is now the home of the vice president.

The bunker is believed to be the secure, undisclosed location former Vice President Dick Cheney remained under protection in secret after the 9/11 attacks.

Eleanor Clift, Newsweek magazine's Washington contributing editor, said Biden revealed the location while filling in for President Obama at the dinner, who, along with Grover Cleveland, is the only president to skip the gathering.

According to the report, Biden "said a young naval officer giving him a tour of the residence showed him the hideaway, which is behind a massive steel door secured by an elaborate lock with a narrow connecting hallway lined with shelves filled with communications equipment."

Clift continued: "The officer explained that when Cheney was in lock down, this was where his most trusted aides were stationed, an image that Biden conveyed in a way that suggested we shouldn't be surprised that the policies that emerged were off the wall."

In December 2002, neighbors complained of loud construction work being done at the Naval Observatory, which has been used as a residence by vice presidents since 1974.

The upset neighbors were sent a letter by the observatory's superintendent, calling the work "sensitive in nature" and "classified" and that it was urgent it be completed "on a highly accelerated schedule."

Residents said they believed workers were digging deep into the ground, which would support Biden's report of a secret bunker, but officials never confirmed the purpose of the work performed.

The revelation is the latest from Biden, who has a long history of political blunders.

Most recently, he said in a televised interview that if a family member asked him about traveling he'd advise staying away from public transportation or confined spaces to avoid swine flu -- a remark described as "borderline fearmongering" by an airline spokesman.

Once a putz, always a putz. Its a untreatable, unrecoverable condition, he's just a buffoon; but even at that I'd rather him than "The Big O," far, far less damaging.

Someone on Fox&Friends said it was like Biden just doesn't realize he's on TV. I guess someone should explain the Microphones and Cameras to him? :sarcastic: :biggrin:

So Cheney hid out in a bunker after the 9/11/01 attacks in a bunker buit in Dec. 2002? Dang the Cheney is better than I thought.

Well, he is the one who lives there so if it gets targeted he has no one to blame but himself. LOL.

What should one expect from the Emperor's ongoing selection of cesspool political misfits ?

Who's Actually The Dummy?

Between the two of them, if you take away the teleprompter from Osbama, there is no difference. They are both walking, talking miscues. But giving away the location of your own, personal refuge from disaster... That's so incredibly stupid it's hard to believe this guy has managed to stay in elected office, let alone is the current VP. And they said Dan Quayle was dumb.

It's actually a good thing Biden isn't a gun owner. He'd leave the combination to his safe taped right next to the dial...

The "undisclosed location" where VP Cheney spent time in the weeks after 9/11/01 was not at the Naval Observatory. The Observatory is in DC, and at the time the idea was to put some distance between him and the president. The terrorists had caught us unaware with some well-planned attacks, and nobody knew what else they had up their sleeves. For instance, a nuclear attack in DC could have taken out both the president and vice president.

The primary "undisclosed location" for VP Cheney was Site R in Pennsylvania. The site is similar to Cheyenne Mountain, in that it is underground and very secure. It serves as a backup communications site for the Pentagon.

Just imagine the slipped secrets that may have been told if he had made it to the Presidency. Talk about a matter of national security, I hope Obama has learned to keep him on a "need to know" basis.

Biden Aide Denies Vice President Leaked Classified Location of Cheney Bunker
An aide to Vice President Joe Biden says he was merely describing a guest room in the Naval Observatory when he told dinner guests about what was reported to be a secret bunker.

"There was no disclosure of classified information," spokeswoman Elizabeth Alexander said.

She said Biden was merely describing a guest room in the Naval Observatory, the official vice presidential residence in Washington.

But that's not what Newsweek's Eleanor Clift reported last week.

She wrote that Biden, while at the Gridiron Club dinner in Washington, described to fellow guests the "bunker-like room" that served as the "secure, undisclosed location" where Cheney holed up after the terror attacks.

"He said the young naval officer giving him a tour of the residence showed him the hideaway, which is behind a massive steel door secured by an elaborate lock with a narrow connecting hallway lined with shelves filled with communications equipment," she wrote.

"The officer explained that when Cheney was in lock down, this was where his most trusted aides were stationed, an image that Biden conveyed in a way that suggested we shouldn't be surprised that the policies that emerged were off the wall."

Alexander on Monday described the room as a rather accessible place that is far from secret.

She said the room was not an underground facility, "rather, an upstairs workspace in the residence, which he understood was frequently used by Vice President Cheney and his aides.

"That workspace was converted into an upstairs guest room when the Bidens moved into the residence."

Poor Joe doesn't know his upstairs rooms from his basement?

This bunch in the White House now is starting to make Richard Nixon's bunch look like Honest Abe and George Washington's cherry tree story rolled into one.
