Gaffe Prevention: VP Biden’s Witness Protection Program … Sent to Talk to the Not-So Masses by Obama
It appears that President Barack Obama and his handlers have finally found a way to hide VP Biden in a witness protection program away from the media so no more verbal gaffes can be reported. The answer, send Biden to locations to speak where no one shows.
Using the age old adage, If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there, does it make a sound, Obama sent Biden off to rural, rural, town outside of Erie, PA to talk with the common folks about federal stimulus money that can be used to expand broadband access to the Internet for rural areas that typically have poor connections.
It looks like the people did not get the memo as no one showed. It’s like a scene from the movie “Black Sheep” where Chris Farley is sent off to some obscure, rural town to help his bothers campaign to just keep him out of the way. Sounds familiar.
Apparently stimulus money and broadband are not all that interesting to the local folk here: Only around 100 or so people have showed up so far to hear Biden talk at noon at Seneca High School off Route 8 in Wattsburg.
The room looked so sparse that about 30 or so chairs were removed by volunteers to give the illusion of a full house.
The effect didn’t exactly work.
