Biden Returns To North Carolina For Bus Tour

Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden is taking a tour of North Carolina.

The Delaware senator plans a bus tour through the state Thursday, hitting three college campuses. Biden opens his day at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, then goes to Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem and Meredith College in Raleigh.

The running mate of Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama last visited the state in September when the two hopefuls appeared together in Greensboro.

Obama and Biden have repeatedly visited the state and expended resources here, and their presence has forced Republican rival John McCain to respond.

The last Democratic candidate to win North Carolina was Jimmy Carter in 1976.

    I just wanted to let all the Demobrats on here know that I know all of you have missed my wisdom this week. I have been on vacation to the Tennessee mountains and there were very few Demobrats and very few non whites there. It was so nice . Did not hear one loud car ride by blaring rap music, and did not have to look at peoples pants hanging halfway off with thier underwear showing. Hated to come back.Did watch Bill Orielly at night though and seen where Biden has made a fool of himself once again. Lets hope that given 2 more weeks, this idiot can lose the election for Obama.

    I with all of you on this mater as I waited in the gas lines, couldn't get a credit card unless I wanted to pay 24% and was lucky to have a job making $1.68 per hour. I did want to weigh in on what the "Polls" actually mean. I researched this after watching some Fox news on the subject. What do the polls mean? Well, most are conducted between 8-5 on weekdays. Guess who answers the phone at "your house" during that time? Not me, you, maybe a spouse? The people that don't have jobs or choose not to work. Well now, I bet they are for Obama and NOT McCAin. I even caught that those called after hours are mostly...guess who? Liberals since they are most likely to pick up the phone while most of us use our caller ID to not answer. So, the media has Obama measuring the curtains in the whitehouse? So, the polls will show Obama ahead just like Gore and Kerry. Then the dems will whine and cry when they loose since the polls don't lie. There will be riots in major city inspired by race. Sorry.

    DD - sounds like you remember it well. It was so bad, they had to create a misery index to measure how bad the economy was and how negatively it affected the lives of Americans. I fear Biden is correct that under an Obama administration, it will be tough. He will be tested and it won't be appearant that he responds correctly.

    To Red State...I was in the Marine Corps, stationed at Quantico Virginia, during the Carter Administration. I can tell you all about the Iranian rescue mission and how CARTER destroyed the military. In addition,he forbid any serviceman to wear the uniform in the DC area. Long gas lines, high interest rates and he even gave away the Panama Canal. OBAMA will make him look like a CONSERVATIVE! The under 40 crowd, voting for OBAMA, will have nightmares in 4 years. As far as I'm concerned,that age group never experienced hard times. They lived fast and loose. There parents bailed them out; instead of letting them FAIL. I hope they enjoy a good dose of reality. The days of the "safety net" are over.

    If you can buy an election these two democrats will surely succeed. $624 million dollars spent this year by the obama campaign compared to $74 million by the McCain delegation. Over $550 million dollars difference. Why? McCain took public funding instead of private donations, which obama said he was going to do, HE LIED, flip-flopped again. People of NC and the nation, you need to wake up and see where obama is coming from and where he has been. The democrats will controll all three branches of the gov't. If you think you will get a tax break, you are crazy. There is not a democrat on record who has ever given a tax break to the citizens of the USA. It has always been increase taxes,spend on pork and look out for your friends. You want rev. wright and mr. ayers the homeland terrorist calling the shots. Good-bye to the military. As for biden, too much botox and hair gel for me. Kind of reminds me of jimmy carter.

    How fitting that the only nominee with a chance to win NC since Jimmy Carter is his twin Obama. Do any of you remember the country under Carter? I was young but I've heard my parents talk about the gas lines, double-digit inflation, interest rates, and unemployment. He also raised taxes and cut defense spending. Sounds just like Obama.

    I sure hope he gets to all 57 states so they can see what kind of idiot he is. I mean this on a political level and not on a personal level. I sure hope Obama can handle the attack within the 6 mos of the election.....or at least crawl under a table.
