While I have labored under the opinion O'Bomber is intellectually challenged because of positions he's taken and things he and his teleprompter have said; I may be shortchanging O'Bomber.

It's quite possible O'Bomber chose Joe O'Biden as "Impeachment Insurance".

Who can forget O'Biden in the debate with Sarah Palin getting the Article of the Constitution which authorizes the Legislative Branch of government wrong? O'Biden has only served in the Congress for about 3 decades.

Who can forget O'Biden's opinion in the same debate that the only time the Vice President has the authority to enter the Senate is to break a tie vote on legislation?

Who can forget O'Biden saying Roosevelt went on television to calm the fears of Americans over the stock market crash of 1929?

But now, O'Biden may have topped his previous blunders.

O'Biden gave an offhand account at the Gridiron Club Dinner to a gaggle of tablemates...among them Eleanor Clift and revealed the "secret" location of the "undisclosed location" the Vice President is taken to keep him safe in an emergency. News reports have always referred to the President and Vice President's secret locations as "an undisclosed location", leaving it up in the air as to where that location actually is...for the sake of security.

No more, that "undisclosed location" which cost millions to construct is a secret "undisclosed location" no longer because Eleanor Clift wrote about it.

We know Joe O'Biden wasn't chosen as O'Bomber's running mate for his smarts.

Perhaps O'Bomber is smarter than he's been given credit for and O'Biden is O'Bomber's "Impeachment Insurance".

Impeach and convict O'Bomber and you get O'Biden. It's even worse when you understand that next in line after O'Biden is Nancy Pee-lousy who is moving up smartly and overtaking O'Biden in intellectual disability.

Now that's "Impeachment Insurance"..the big II

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.
By Jonathan Passantino

FOXNews.com

Sunday, May 17, 2009

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.

Oh, you're soooo right katatonic. Imagine electing McCain and getting Sarah Palin who has been "indicted" in Alaska.

My, my, my, we sure avoided a nasty situation there. Thank you so much for warning us all about Palin's "indictment".

As for Dick Cheney, he has more smarts in his right thumbnail than O'Biden has in his whole body, more smarts in his few remaining hairs than in the bodies of both the O brothers.

Did anyone notice how the O brothers have backed off criticizing Cheney. He ripped O'Bomber/O'Biden for putting the US and US citizens at risk. He also specifically asked for the results of interrogations to be released...since the O brothers and some lamebrains in Congress were attacking the Bush administration measures to foil attacks on the US.

Great silence coming from the White House about Cheney now they've found out he won't take any bullshiiit from them...now that he's a private citizen.

I agree Cpn, but it's too late. O'Biden already has bred his genes into the gene pool.

Could be they're scared shitttless Cheney will say more now that they've released some of the documents and have pushed for investigations of Justice Department lawyers who researched the laws and found the interrogation tactics the CIA and others used were perfectly legal.

Domoscats have been in "Get Cheney Mode" for some time...when Cheney couldn't effectively fight back. In a street fight..which is what it would turn into, my money is on Cheney. Further, I believe the O brothers and demoscats in Congress are not interested in a free for all where they get their a@ses kicked in a most public way over National Security issues.

Colin Powell already found out..a few days ago that Cheney is no pussycat.

Cheney's a douche bag.

I don't really feel a great desire to elaborate here, for some strange reason.

I would venture Colin Powell knows more about Dick Cheney than I do too.

He, for instance knows he got his butt kicked in virtually every policy disagreement with Cheney.

More recently, Powell got his head handed to him by Cheney, publicly, for attempting to shape Republican policy when Cheney said he thought Powell had left the Republican Party when he endorsed and must have voted for O'Bomber. Which, he said is an indication of Powell's loyalty to Republican principles of government.

Not only did Cheney fire a shot across Powell's bow but also across the bow of other so called Republicans who are and have been calling on Republicans to adopt a democrat lite stance.

Sorry MVM but you're out of step with most of America if you're criticizing Dick Cheney/Bush over "enhanced interrogation techniques".

"Support for an inquiry into the Bush-era interrogation policy may be relatively limited because a majority of Americans believe the use of the techniques for questioning terrorism suspects was justified. Former Vice President Dick Cheney has probably been the most prominent person to argue that the information that may have been obtained from such practices kept Americans safe from further terrorist attacks. Cheney, not surprisingly, opposes an investigation."

I march to my own drummer, so I don't mind being out of step

No, I didn't criticize his interrogation techniques (but thanks for reminding me of those nonetheless).

Well MVM, Cheney ate Colin Powell for lunch and also ate President Teleprompter for lunch...right after lunch yesterday.

O'Bomber sounds more like the attorney for al-Qaeda than President of the United States.

So, Colin Powell says Americans want more government services....AND are willing to pay higher taxes to get those government services.

So, how does Colin Powell explain the mass tax revolt in California where every single ballot initiative for higher taxes went straight down the tube...by landslides?

Ballot initiatives 1A through 1E got eaten alive by California voters. Each of these initiatives would have raised taxes in California or changed the California lottery.

The only ballot initiative of this group which passed was 1F...an initiative to LIMIT LEGISLATIVE SALARIES.

Obviously, Colin Powell doesn't know what he's talking about and should be ignored when he starts bloviating.

Other reasons...Colin Powell and certain others who call themselves "Republicans" but are really "republicans in name only" should be ignored when they start bloviating about what Republicans should do to repair the Republican Party..is found in this article.

You Might Not Be A Republican
By Randall Hoven

With all the heavy thinking and breathing going on over "what it means to be Republican," let me provide some light thinking and breathing on the subject. With apologies to Jeff Foxworthy. (But not to Colin Powell.)

If you supported, endorsed and voted for the Democrat for President, you might not be a Republican.

If you supported, endorsed and voted for the Democrat with the most liberal voting record in the Senate, even to the left of self-described socialist Bernie Sanders, you might not be a Republican.

If you refused to vote for the Republican, a war hero and former POW who had 26 years experience in Congress and one of the more liberal voting records among Republicans in the Senate , because he was too conservative, you might not be a Republican.

If you think we have nothing to learn politically from the Republican who won 49 states and the most electoral votes for President ever in US history, all just 25 years ago, you might not be a Republican.

If you think the trouble with the Republican who cosponsored McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform, McCain-Leiberman global warming legislation, and McCain-Kennedy comprehensive immigration reform is that he is too conservative, you might not be a Republican.

If you think the trouble with the Republican President who signed McCain-Feingold, supported McCain-Kennedy, championed and signed No Child Left Behind, championed and signed prescription coverage under Medicare and increased federal spending over President Clinton's levels across the board, is that he is too conservative, partisan and ideological, you might not be a Republican.

If you think a Republican with published SAT scores that imply an IQ of 125-130, or smarter than 95% of the population and in the range of Lincoln, Rousseau and Thackeray, and who graduated from Yale and then earned an MBA from Harvard is stupid, but a Democrat who has not released any of his education records is the smartest President ever, you might not be a Republican.

If you think the Democrat with 11 years in elective office has more experience than the Republican with 12 years in elective office, you might not be a Republican.

If you think the experience of voting "present" 129 times, writing a second autobiography while in office, never holding an executive position and beginning a run for President just one year into a first Senate term is more impressive than being mayor of a city, oil & gas commissioner of a state that provides up to 20% of the country's oil and gas, and governor of that state while enjoying a 90% approval rating, you might not be a Republican.

If you think a presidential campaign revolving around "hope", "change" and "yes we can" is the mark of intellectual gravitas, you might not be a Republican.

If you think the man who called his own grandmother a "typical white person" has transcended race, you might not be a Republican.

If you think a $459 billion deficit under a Republican is irresponsible, but a $1,845 billion deficit under a Democrat is responsible, you might not be a Republican.

If you are against tax cuts, for more government spending, in favor of Kyoto and global warming treaties, for government-run health-care, are generally in favor of most things in the Democratic platform and against most things in the Republican platform, you might not be a Republican.

If you think the way to win votes is by imitating John McCain (who lost) and Arnold Schwartzenegger (who helped put California $21 billion in the red), but eschewing the examples of Ronald Reagan (who won twice, once with 49 states) and the Newt Gingrich congress (who won the House for the first time in 40 years), you might not be a Republican.

If you think the way to win more votes is to imitate the Democrat Congress, the most unpopular Congress in polling history, you might not be a Republican.

If you think a Democrat who made a $34,000 mistake on his taxes is the best man for the job of running the IRS and Treasury, you might not be a Republican.

If you think it is OK for a Democrat President to kill a wanted terrorist by dropping a cluster bomb on him and those around him, including civilian women and children, all without any kind of hearing or tribunal, but a crime for a Republican President to authorize that a terrorist be yanked by his shirt collar to learn how to avoid civilian deaths, you might not be a Republican.

If you switched parties from Republican to Independent (e.g., Jim Jeffords), or from Republican to Democrat (e.g., Arlen Specter), you might not be a Republican.

If you haven't publicly supported a Republican in over 20 years and you make a living criticizing Republicans in the New York Times, on CNN, etc., you might not be a Republican.

If you think Rush Limbaugh preaches hate and Jeremiah Wright doesn't, or that Wanda Sykes is funny but Ann Coulter isn't, you might not be a Republican.

Randall Hoven is a former member of Dick Cheney's secret special death squad. He was involved in the assassinations of Lebanese Prime Minister Rafique Al Hariri and former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Benazir Bhutto, among others. He is ready to confess all, for a seven figure book deal. He can be reached at randall.hoven@gmail.com.

If you're attempting to say the members of the California State Legislature and their tax raising sycophants are a bunch of illiterate dummies...then we can agree on that.

However as to what was in the minds of those who voted against ballot measures 1A through 1E and voted for 1F, it's crystal clear they knew what they were voting for...and against. The tax raising Nazis outspent them $10 to $1 and the tax revolt happened anyway.
