JOE BIDEN REVEALS THE VP’S SECRET BUNKER LOCATION…

Oops!  He did it again…
 
"Big Mouth" Keystone Cop Joe Biden has put his foot in his mouth, yet again.  At a recently attended Gridiron Club dinner in Washington, Biden told his dinnermates about the existence and location of a secret bunker under the old U.S. Naval Observatory, which was probably used by Cheney after the 9/11 attacks, and is now the home of the vice-president.  According to Eleanor Clift, Newsweek magazine’s Washington contributing editor, she said that Biden revealed the location while filling in for Obama at the dinner, who, along with Grover Cleveland, is the only president to skip the gathering.  I’ll bet Obama is kicking himself in the butt for not being there to stick a roll in Biden’s mouth to shut him up.  Isn’t this supposed to be classified information?  Maybe in Biden’s mind, he’s contributing to the "transparency of government" that Obama has been touting.  Some things should not be disclosed to the public, but Biden wants to be seen as a "big man on campus" by revealing secrets, and the problem is that he doesn’t see anything wrong with his remarks.  This new administration has got it all wrong by being transparent in issues that should be kept secret (think waterboarding and other enhanced interrogation tactics against detainees) and by being opaque on issues that should be out in the open (think stimulus spending, growing bigger government and raising taxes).  If anything happens to Obama (God forbid…yes, I said it, and I mean it), this Keystone Cop will be running this country…into the ground faster than Obama ever could.  I’m sure the Obamabots will be doing more damage control to downplay this latest gaffe.  He sure is keeping them busy.
 
Loose lips sink ships, and with the ever-mounting gaffes coming out of this administration, from Obama on down, we are witnessing the sinking of the economy, our retirement funds, our livelihood, and perhaps our freedom and protection along with it.  When are people going to smarten up and see our government for what it is…a House filled with a bunch of unqualified, manipulative, over-paid and corrupted vultures…

Biden Reveals Location of Secret VP Bunker
 

Vice President Joe Biden, well-known for his verbal gaffes, may have finally outdone himself, divulging potentially classified information meant to save the life of a sitting vice president.

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 Clift’s report on the Newsweek blog, 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.

Blame it on his hard scrabble Scranton past, but at least jolting Joe speaks in a language we can understand rather than in pleasantly deceptive new speak.
