Business dealings of Biden family could be problematic for him - Los Angeles Times

Quote:
And SimmonsCooper employees have donated about $200,000 to Biden's campaign efforts since 2001, making the firm his No. 1 donor. All told, SimmonsCooper employees provided much more money to Biden than to any other senator during that period, according to an analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics.
I'm convinced you just picked a card, any card - except the one that would have done you the most good. Hillary.

He picked Biden for one reason -- to try and get some of the white male vote. A 36 year liberal senate insider. Where is the "change?!"


"His brother and sons have close ties to a law firm that has benefited from the senator's congressional votes."

OMG, you're right! He just picked him for no reason, with no investigation. Yup, just pulled a name out of a hat.

I think he wanted Biden's delegates (0!) and 8,000 votes.

Go ahead, but start your own thread. This one is about the Biden men and their close ties to lobbyists and the appearance of payola.

Obama is a lightweight and he wanted a HEAVYweight--TEDDY--but had to settle for a hair transplanted wimp from DuPontware.

Obama could not have vetted Biden's brain and mouth. Biden is a loose cannot, he is a pompous idiot. How smart is it to say that "paying high taxes is Patriotic"?!?!?

The Biden selection is a story of two women: the one Obama didn't pick and the one McCain did.

Obama will cry, weep, and wail on Nov 5th. Not picking Hillary and not properly vetting Biden will cost him. Dearly.
