Love or hate him, Vice President Joe Biden has an old-style, retail-politician way of pressing the flesh -- especially when it comes to wooing women voters. On Friday, Biden spoke with an African American woman at a local restaurant in Ohio. "My name is Gorgeous." The vice president responded: "Hello, Gorgeous." Here are more photos of Biden charming his biggest fans.
Please. Don't push it. He has so many screws loose.
I love that he's a bit of a weirdo. He's like your favorite crazy uncle. And I love that he thinks the Onion articles and photos of him are hilarious.
R5 yeah The uncle that's only related by marriage, not blood.
eew OP you are blind and fucking weird. Biden is gross. uber gross.
He has extreme big-dick face.
I don't agree. I think he's intelligent, funny, incredibly well-informed, a true elder statesman. I like best that he is truly kind. He softens BO: they complement each other perfectly. And I would totally do him.
I cracked up when he rolled up on stage after Obama's speech tonight. So long as he has the good sense not to make a disastrous run for the Presidential nomination in 2016 - which I'm not totally counting on - I'm happy to call him the perfect Vice President. What more do you want out of that office than America's Fun Uncle?
I think he can be America's Fun Uncle, but I also think he has the knowledge and gravity and connections to fill in and, god forbid, to assume the role. I hate even to think of it. But I do think he has enough respect on Capitol Hill.
He's an idiot and an embarrassment to the Democratic Party. Just cross your fingers Obama lives four more years.
You are a fucking asshole, R13.
Number one for even *hoping* Obama could get assassinated, and number two for calling Biden an embarassment.
YOU'RE the embarassment. And you're a bitter, vile loser. FUCK YOU, ASSHOLE!
Btw, YOU LOST. Fucking freeper shit.
Wow, R14. You're insane, aren't you?
I HOPE Obama lives a nice, long, productive life. Where did I say I was hoping for his assassination?
Me, a freeper? Put down the crack pipe, cupcake.
I used to live in his home state. I know he's full of gaffs, but he is also one of the few pols I've ever met who will stop in his tracks to converse with a constituent. He was always very concerned with knowing exactly how Delawareans felt about any issue.
Jill Biden has always been just as approachable and ready to meet the challenges of teaching in a small but incredibly diverse state. She's done so much and she's never politicized her work.
So fuck off. I'll take Joe and Jill over Mittens & Anne or Ryan and whomever he's married to.
Joe Biden is neither an idiot nor an embarrassment to his party. He probably knows as much about how the Senate functions and where the bodies are buried as anyone around, part of the reason I think he's an excellent choice as Vice President. If he doesn't have photos of prominent congress members with barnyard animals, he failed to learn the lessons of LBJ.
If Biden charms women and is fun to be around, so much the better. Darth Vader Cheney set the standard for dour and corrupt vice presidents; hopefully I'll never see anything like Cheney again in my lifetime.
Biden looks like a movie star from Hollywood's golden age and he's a smart,fun guy.
Great pics...but are all Americans soooooooo ugly?
My mom met him several years ago. You would have thought it was Brad Pitt or someone. (Not that I don't think Biden isn't handsome, it just that he seems to drive women of a certain age wild.)
Great guy - love him and his frankness.
Happy warrior, that what the Prez called him!
I'd much rather have Biden a heartbeat from the presidency than Ryan any day.
I don't think that's limited to women of a "certain age," R20. He loves all women, from babies to great-grandmothers, and they seem to love him back. When you can get women to talk about it, they'll tell you it's rare to find a man who genuinely likes women, and those like Biden who do are like catnip to women. They can't get enough.
I'm a big Jill fan as well.
R24, I have no factual evidence for this claim, but I would be willing to bet that men who like women end up marrying very good women. Their selection process certainly isn't driven by the usual criteria that sabotages the search.
BOTH of his wives were wonderful, good hearted women. I think that says a lot about him, as well.
Very true, r23.
He's one of the rare straight men that actually likes the company of women. As odd as that sounds.
He's very endearing in an off beat way. Like someone you could sit down and have a beer with even though you know he's way smarter than you.
Check out this pic of the biker chick on his lap. She is just tickled and the two guys are like, "WTF?"
