    Today the vice president addressed the NAACP's 103rd Annual Convention in Houston and with a little surprise to the admiring crowd: Before Joe Biden gave his speech, president Barack Obama addressed the NAACP via video. Of course, there were applauds and applauds.


    "We see education as the single most important criteria for minority children ...," Joe Biden told NAACP.


    "We see education as central to the vision of ascendency for Americans," said Joe Biden.


    "You go home with those that brought you to the dance," Joe Biden told NAACP at beginning of his speech: Literally announcing he was lifetime member of NAACP.


    "We see an America that leads by the power of its example as well as the example of its power."



    Hear Joe Biden for yourself -

    Didn't matter if no one was there, canned applase takes only one.

    What an insult to the NAACP, sending Biden in his place. Whow.

    Joe Biden on Mitt Romney:


    "Education doesn't play a central role in the Romney(GOP) vision for the future of America ... It's on the back burner. If you doubt me, look at their budget."


    "(Mitt Romney) is not sure whether or not Lilly Ledbetter is good ... but he's sure on his position on Roe v. Wade."

    Reminds me of the song, "Send In The Clowns".

    Remember that Obama is only HALF black. Maybe he doesn't qualify to be an NAACP member in "good standing".

    LOL, education education education!!! Yet they back the CA and IL plan of allowing 60% of the tax dollars to go to bloated retired teacher pension plans pay out (not to the current funding, since it's never funded), ginorous and unacceptable class sizes, huge lay offs because they cater to the UNIONS and not the parents and children, they cut programs because they cater to the UNIONS and not the parents and children, they are against vouchers, they are against Charter schools, they protect communist style tenure system etc,

    They are ANTI-EDUCATION!!!!

    If they cared about education they would support Scott Walker who is HIRING teachers, saving schools, saving school programs and actually LOWERING student to teacher ratios and doing this without raising taxes and balancing the budget!!!

    They don't give a FUCK about education!

    Obama slapped the NAACP in the face by not going there in person, but ti won't matter, because 95% will still vote for him!

    Joe Biden on Republicans:


    "This ain't your father's Republican party."


    "The tax code that governor Romney & his allies support continue to skew toward the wealthy."


    "They see a country where voting is made harder, not easier ... there is a lot more to say; but I am preaching to the choir."
