Vice President Joe Biden
WASHINGTON – While the subject of Barack Obama’s birth certificate is still a topic most press outlets refuse to cover, it became a matter of sport in Vice President Joe Biden’s Gridiron Dinner address this weekend.
After mentioning one of the Republican speakers for the evening, Arnold Schwarzenegger, was born in Austria and that one of the Democratic speakers, Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, was born in Canada, Biden chortled: “Folks, this is going to be Lou Dobbs’ worst nightmare.
From there, Biden transitioned to the birth certificate controversy.
“You know, I never realized just how much power Dick Cheney had until my first day on the job. I walked into my office, and you know how the outgoing president always leaves the incoming president a note in his desk?” he asked rhetorically. “I opened my drawer and Dick Cheney had left me Barack Obama’s birth certificate.”
