Vice President Biden To Visit Davidson Co. On Community College Tour

THOMASVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- Vice President Joe Biden is visiting North Carolina this week to join his wife in stumping for the Obama Administration's push for community colleges.

The White House said Monday that the vice president will join Jill Biden and Labor Secretary Hilda Solis at Davidson County Community College in Thomasville on Friday. That will mark the end of a three-day bus tour through key election states for Solis and Jill Biden.

Their message is that community colleges have an important role in training workers to meet emerging business needs.

Jill Biden was a community college instructor for 18 years. Solis is a former community college trustee

The tour has one North Carolina stop after rolling through Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia.

      Wow, now that was funny right there but this is even more funny...considering the primaries are not over yet. You Kid in Chief will not make the second term with these numbers. Even Jimmy Carter had a higher approval than Obimbo. With gas prices rising after he shut down the pipeline and the gulf drilling...You should go out and buy him a nice hammer. The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 25% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty percent (40%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -15 (see trends). In potential Election 2012 matchups, both Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum have pulled to within two points of the president. Obama leads Romney 45% to 43% and if Santorum is the Republican nominee, the president leads 46% to 44%. Matchup results are updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern

        Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama's approval rating is back to 50% for the first time in more than eight months, and he currently holds an edge against all the remaining Republican presidential candidates in hypothetical head-to-head match-ups, according to a new national survey.

          You know, that is interresting...that head to head thing but did you know a spider monkey is named for it's long and thins arms, legs, and tails. Having these strong and long limbs help this animal to be one of the best equipped arboreal (living in the trees) animals found the rainforest. A spider monkey can swing through the rainforest canopy and hang suspended by their tail. Their long limbs help them pick fruit (their favorite food). They live almost exclusively on fruit and nuts. They also eat young leaves, flowers, sometimes bark and decaying wood, as well as honey. So the point here is the spider monkey stands a better chance of winning his second term...reread my post one more time. Its based on facts, not conjecture, theory, feel good....buy the man a hammer and a saw for his next position.

        The media likes to make it a close contest for the sake of ratings, but it's gonna be a landslide for Obama this year... mark my words! The GOP field is just too weak. I might change my mind if Paul got the nod, but I don't see that happening.

    Seems like just the other day when we heard; Joe Biden on the economy: "The number one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S." or Joe Biden on the passage of the Health Care Bill: "This is a big f...ing deal!" and how about when Joe Biden, on the mother of Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen, who is, in fact, still alive: "His mom lived in Long Island for ten years or so. God rest her soul. And- although, she's- wait- your mom's still- your mom's still alive. Your dad passed. God bless her soul." Oh, and when Biden said; "When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened." Yep, Barlow and Lavon, I can see why you support him....

        What is unbelieveable is that you think Obama will get a second term. Gas prices will kill his chances just like it did Jimmy Carters. In fact, I think he already knows its over. Consider, what idiot would stop a pipeline, attack the Catholic Church on its freedom of religion and request 1.4 trillion more money during an election year? He cannot afford to lose moderates, Catholics and conservative democrats...yet his seems to me what he is doing. Thats a lot of blood letting during campaign season, feeding the GOP all the ammo it needs to remind folks.

          You have got to be crazy, The GOP have proven over and over again that they ARE THE PARTY OF CLOWNS. All the dems have to do is replay the Repugs attack ads on each other. Seems everyone but you know the pipeline was not canceled, it was delayed. Even the Governor of Nebraska (Republican) Heineman was against it, as well as the citizens of Nebraska. If was a serious threat to their water table. But you backwoods parrots don't care about anyone but the wealthy Big Oil companies and their record profits. BTW, the pipeline will not effect gas prices in the United States. Idiot!

It will be the republican incumbant who will take the 2016 election. Maybe Santorum, maybe Romney, maybe even Micky Mouse. Anybody would be better than Obama!! Biden is just a bad joke, even worse than Obama, lmao!!!

          You are correct about one thing. There is no competition this election cycle, the republican will win by a landslide. Obama's lack of a record won him the election in 2008 and his total failure will LOSE him the election in 2012. The republican candidate has no competition at all!!!

What happened? Vampire bats rarely kill their prey. Afterall the bats are fairly small, and it would have to drink a lot of blood to drain a cow! However, bats are notorious for spreading rabies and other bat-borne diseases. Bats are immune to rabies. But Obama is not.

          As usual, you go to the "what you want to hear polls" versis, this is the poll that predicted Obamas win as well as Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush. Did you get confused on that internet thing again? It also shows Obama up 3 points on Romney and 2 points on Santorum. But we know all that will change when the primary is over, Obama should be 60% at this phase....50% will not hack it, as Jimmy Carter, as soon as the primaries were over and all the backers got behind one candidate, Jimmy lost in a landslide. Oh, thats when all the rocks fall off of the hillside and crush those at the bottom.

          I gotta side with Bidenot....he is right. I saw an interviewer ask if college students and working Americans knew who Biden was...they hadn't a clue. Even when coaxed with multiple choice questions...no clue. A young college boy said he was president in England....One girl was asked if she knew what the national debt was, you said she guessed it was several billion dollars. The interviewer told he it was 15 trillion and growning, she said "Saywhat?".

      Thats interresting however did you consider Kinkajous are some of the most mis-understood mammal of the tropical rainforest. The kinkajou is found throughout southern Mexico, Central America, and the Amazon basin. They live high in the forest canopy, nearly 100 feet off the ground. Because they live so high off the ground and are nocturnal, it takes a very dedicated scientist to try and study the behaviors of a kinkajou. Oh the anger you guys show when you don't have a decent argument...just anger.

Nobody is angry at wing nuts like you, snake oil, we actually feel sorry for you. I mean, I can't imagine how tough life must be for folks who are so simple minded.

Take for example, didn't Whoopi Goldberg on 43-year-old Roman Polanski raping and sodomizing a 13-year-old girl: "I know it wasn't rape-rape. It was something else but I don't believe it was rape-rape. He went to jail and and [sic] when they let him out he was like "You know what this guy's going to give me a hundred years in jail I'm not staying, so that's why he left." Or Joy Behar on Economics: "Isn't it a little racist to call it Black Friday?" Do you know who they would vote for?

          As always, snake oil either doesn't know or willingly ignores the whole truth. At first the surge itself only succeeded at increasing body counts but as strategies evolved the surge certainly helped but another major factor was the US supporting and arming the "Sons of Iraq" movement, which were Sunni Tribal militias that aligned themselves with the US and worked to tamp down AQ attacks and violence in their home areas.
