    No, because he was telling the truth. They do support some of the organizations that we consider terrorists.
    It's all just political posturing to remind them that we know they are playing both sides at the same time. They always have. Nothing new here unless you are Faux news trying to make something big about what is really a status quo item.

    Buggie, This IS Biden. Obama knew it before choosing him. Why are you surprised?

    RadioBuggie: Will he be FORCED to resign?

    Not even possible.

    ..and if NOT, WHY?

    He cannot be "forced" to resign and Obama can't "fire" him even if he wanted to. Under the Constitution, the Vice President can only be impeached and then removed by a vote of 67 senators at his trial. Unless Biden commits some crime or he needs to resign due to health reasons, there is zero chance he will resign, even if he says much more provocative things than this.

    Biden technically doesn't even work for Obama. Joe Biden's only official duty is President of the US Senate, which is mostly a ceremonial duty unless a senate vote is tied, then Biden gets to cast the tie-breaking vote. Only in recent decades has the Vice President become an unofficial close adviser to the President, but this is simply something the president chooses to do. The next president could choose to not even give the VP an office in the White House, as was the case 60+ years ago, when the VP had an office only in the Senate offices.

    Since when should the partisan feelings of a few hacks make anybody do anything? Biden attracts more criticism than he is due.

    It's the conservatives that are full of doo, due to their inability to do what thinking people do all the time. Connect with reality and stop living in the conservative fantasy land.
