In claiming progress on the White House’s initiative, Biden renewed his call for action at the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue. “Now, it’s not enough to take these steps on our own — we still need Congress to pass comprehensive legislation to reduce gun violence,” he said….
‘Is that how leadership works’? Joe Biden on O-care website: Sorry, president and I aren’t ‘technology geeks’
Joe Biden addressed the HealthCare.gov train wreck today, and this would be a fitting way to kick off his 2016 campaign.
From “big effin deal” to “big effin fail”:
Joe Biden is in Iowa for former Sen. Tom Harkin’s annual steak fry, and he spoke of St. Thomas More as if he was just a buddy Joe hangs out with at Home Depot. According to Biden, that’s how Catholics refer to him, but tweeters don’t seem to agree:
It’s nice to hear Vice President Joe Biden lay off of the “black helicopter crowd” (Second Amendment advocates) and branch out a bit. Tonight at an event marking the 19th anniversary of the Violence Against Women Act, Biden warned the audience he was going to say something outrageous — not that anyone was caught by surprise. He then blamed “this sort of Neanderthal crowd” in the House who let VAWA expire at the end of the year. (A five-year reauthorization then passed in March.)
Vice President Joe Biden said the administration “couldn’t have picked a better man or woman for the job” as chief of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives than director B. Todd Jones.

Hey, guys, get it? Get it? The White House is, like, totally hip and stuff. It’s Hump Day! That Geico ad with the camel? The White House is on it. Isn’t that hi-freakin-larious?
If a still image of Uncle Joe Biden palling around with a camel wasn’t enough, the White House Tumblr has the animated version.
Chalk up another one for the most transparent administration ever. We’re learning tonight that Vice President Joe Biden will be holding a closed-door meeting tomorrow with undisclosed “gun safety advocates” — which very well could mean the National Rifle Association. Maybe he’s getting private lessons on proper shotgun use?

In a show of support for those facing furloughs due to sequestration, several members of the current administration have said they will return a portion of their pay to the Treasury, but not Vice President Joe Biden.
According to Politico, Biden is not yet ready to part with any of his salary, but may if his own staff faces furloughs.
After Vice President Joe Biden sparked backlash with a remark that downplayed one type of domestic abuse, blogger Ace of Spades posed a question to Twitter: “Why would someone go out of his way to take a ‘garden variety slap across the face’ off the table as domestic abuse?”
no, seriously, why would someone go out of his way to take a "garden variety slap across the face" off the table as domestic abuse?—

Vice President Joe Biden and his gun violence task force brought a week of meetings to a close today by sitting down with representatives from the video game industry. Representatives of the NRA, who attended yesterday’s meeting, called the experience “disappointing” and accused the White House of simply “checking a box” by meeting with them. Gamers are no more thrilled to be associated with the Sandy Hook shootings than law-abiding gun owners were, and they seem to have just about as much confidence in Biden’s ability to prevent future violence. That box had to be checked too, though.
