He thinks it and he says it! No edit, no filter, no thought to "is this classified information?" or "is this going to cause a panic?" or "is this insane?" - just Joe Biden swinging from the hip and knocking it out of the park.

I don't know, Biden says a lot of weird things for sure, but I think Fox is blowing this one up. We all know where the VP residence is, or if we don't know, it's public information and you can know if you read Wikipedia. That it has a really fancy "classified" basement isn't really a big revelation.

And the article says Cheney used it "after 9/11," which could be any point from late-2001 to early-2009. We all know, or at least, you can know if you want, that Cheney was in the PEOC in the White House (a bunker that's very well known) so the Super Secret VP Bunker wasn't as crucial to 9/11 as the article makes it out to be.

If Biden revealed an undisclosed VP Bunker in Idaho or something, that would be a bigger deal.


But, FDR still didn't address the nation on TV after the stock market crash in 1929. Sorry, Mr. Vice President.

Fox is going to continue to blow up stories about Biden, because Obama doesn't make these types of mistakes, yet. Plus, they are not that big of a deal since you can find it on wikepedia anyway. Fox like most media sources will continue to blow things out of proportion, because its what they do.

I don't mind them talking up Biden's comments because it is kind of amusing to me. The last VP was rarely heard from so it's quite a change to have the new one unable to shut up.

But Fox can shut up about Obama using a teleprompter any time now.

Not really sure what the big issue here is. Is it really a surprise that the VP's residence would have a 'secret bunker' underneath for security purposes? We all know that the White House has one for the president, so it's just common sense that the VP would have a similar room in place as well.

Nevermind the fact that this whole story is based on an unconfirmed anecdote from a dinner party, and it turns out it wasn't true. But you have to be an idiot not to realize that there is a Bunker under every building in Washington. What's next? Biden lets its "slip" that the windows on the Presidential Limos are bulletproof?

True. All his "slip" would do is confirm what DC area people have known for years. In late 01 after the attacks, there was VERY loud construction that took place at the residence that made news because they residents in the area were complaining about all the noise.

It was never revealed what they were building, but everyone assumed it was a bunker.

Carville and Begala are not bombastic enough for you? Do you ever watch Crossfire? Novak is sedate, Carlson is calm; Carville and Begala yell and demagogue until they are blue in the face. And I don't know if I'd lump Buchanan in with Novak.
