Do Not Pass Go, Do Not Collect $225,000

I have a Google Alert set to send me an email any time a major news source does a story with "Joe Biden" and "gaffe" in it. Needless to say, I get a lot of those alerts. Here's one that wasn't called a gaffe, but should have been. Read:

The "heavy lifting is over" when it comes to the Obama administration's legislative priorities this year, Vice President Joe Biden said Thursday evening.

Biden said now that Wall Street reform is finished and signed into law, the administration could go out and make its political case for its accomplishment.

“Now that the heavy lifting is over, we can go out and make our case,” Biden said at a fundraiser in North Carolina, according to a pool report.

Congress hasn't even passed a budget -- budgeting being its single most important duty. And Congress has no plans to pass a budget before the election, either. Ya think the President could stick around long enough to spend some of his precious (and increasingly dear) political capital to wrangle Nancy Pelosi into doing her job?

On the other hand, given Obama's recent track record on the campaign trail, maybe it's all for the best.

Go get'em, Joe!
