The Contemplative Joe Biden
Obama needs to do a Rev Wright on old Joe and get his embarrassing dumb ass over to the Naval Observatory and let him attend to his roses. It is is just a matter of time before Obama will tire of having to pick up after the irrepressible Biden. There simply is no known verbal remedy of kaopectate that could ever plug him up. Maliki noticed.

BAGHDAD, Feb 10 (Reuters) - Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki took issue with the new U.S. administration on Tuesday, calling Vice President Joe Biden's criticism of the slow pace of reform in Iraq "out of date".You get the picture but do read on..
Before leaving Washington last week to deliver a major foreign policy speech in Germany, Biden chided Baghdad for failing to settle disputes over the city of Kirkuk and to enact a law dividing oil revenue, among other issues.
"I think our administration is going to have to be very deeply involved. We are going to have to get in there and be much more aggressive in forcing them to deal with these issues," Biden said.
Asked about Biden's remarks on Tuesday, Maliki, an increasingly assertive leader whose followers won surprise victories in provincial elections last month, fired back.
"I believe talk about applying pressure on the Iraqi government or taking hard measures against it no longer works," he said at a news conference in Baghdad with visiting French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
