Biden to make NH candidacy official on Thursday

Today the White House released a statement confirming what CNN's Rachel Streitfeld reported on the Political Ticker yesterday: Vice President Joe Biden will head to New Hampshire on Thursday to officially file papers for President Obama to compete in the state's first-in-the-nation primary. While in New Hampshire, Biden will also deliver remarks at Plymouth State University, calling on Congress to pass the portion of the American Jobs Act that provides money to help states avoid laying-off teachers and first responders.

    If Obama cared anything about this country, he would resign, and get out of the way, so others can get to work to make things better. Obama has no ability at all, to get the job done. Hand the reins to Biden......maybe he can at least use some common sense.

      So sorry you are having a bad week. Republicans can dish it out, but they can't take the heat.

    How about we hand the economy over to the teabaggers. They will surely fix it by filling their millionaire friends pockets. Folks, we need to respectful of the president. I am ashamed at the vitriol that Rick McDaniel has spewed.

    I am with President Obama and VP Biden 100%. What need to be done is to get rid of any politician who will not sit down and work together to do what is best for this country. All Mitch McConnell and the Republicans have done was to obstruct, block any and everything which could have help the middle class. McConnell number one goal was to make President Obama a one term President. His number one goal wasn't to make the economy stronger, create jobs, keep America safe from terrorists, but to make this President a one term President. The President's jobs bill could have put teachers, fire fighters, policemen back to work. It could have put construction workers back to work rebuilding our bridges and roads. But the Republicans block that, because they want to make this President a one term President. It didn't matter to them that people are struggling.
