Joe Biden visits Costco

Biden visits Costco By BYRON TAU and DONOVAN SLACK | 11/29/12 9:42 AM EST Vice President Joe Biden made an unannounced visit to Washington D.C.'s first Costco Thursday on the day of its grand opening. Via the pool report: "He flashed his Costco card as he walked through the doors to loud cheers. Employee Ivey Stewart handled a cart for Biden, who stopped frequently for hugs and photos. Asked about whether he was optimistic about fiscal cliff negotiations, he said "I am."' The Costco is located in Ft. Lincoln, a neighborhood in the northeast quandrant of the city near the Maryland line. UPDATE: Biden bought several childrens' books, fire logs, a 32 inch Panasonic television and a "big" apple pie, according to the pool. The pool also reports that the vice president "availed himself of several Costco food samples, and looked like he enjoyed them." Biden used the visit to urge Congress to pass the middle class portions of the tax cut, saying: "Consumer confidence is growing, the last thing we need to do is dash that."
