The White House announced that Vice President Joe Biden would spend the weekend vacationing in the U.S. Virgin Islands. It's his second vacation there in three months.

His White House schedule reads:

    DAILY GUIDANCE FOR THE VICE PRESIDENT

    Friday, March 7 – Sunday, March 9

    The Vice President and Dr. Jill Biden will visit the U.S. Virgin Islands. There are no public events scheduled.

And as Geoff Earle of the New York Post reported on December 27, the vice president spent New Year's on the U.S. Virgin Islands.

When you have a tough, high pressure job such as he,  you need to get away to relax. :silly:
Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago

Our elected officials now think of themselves as royalty.  Private planes, security, all expenses paid for by the American taxpayer.  Biden is following Obama's lead.
Remember when Nancy Pelosi had her own private jet paid for with our tax dollars?

The American public has done nothing to dissuade them from that point of view.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

Not just Obama and Biden - Boehner, Reid, etc... all think they should fly private and travel the world on our dime.
