It appears as if no one is spared from the wrath of Obama, including his own Vice President. According to new claims by Joe Biden himself, he was, “given every s*** job,” simply for supporting the gay community before Obama did.
The two allegedly used to have a close relationship where they would work together using eachothers strengths to accomplish the same goal. When Obama first took office, he reportedly asked Biden what role he wanted to play as Vice President.

During a recent interview Biden explained that he responded to the Chief-of-Staff by saying, “Base it on what you want of me to help you govern…But I want to be the last guy in the room on every major decision… You’re president, I’m not, but if it’s my experience you’re lookin’ for, I want to be the last guy to make the case.”
From that point, it was a match made in heaven, if thats what you want to call it. Obama used his brute force while Biden used his friendly connections working together to complete the same tasks.
Things were going great for the professional couple, until that is, Biden made the mistake of overstepping the publicity of his political superior. Apparently Biden had come out and expressed his support for the gay community to the public.
So whats the matter with this? He did it before Obama.
Apparently outraged by the incident as he now sat in Biden’s shadow only echoing his comments instead of the public hearing it first from him. The result? Obama literally shunned his own VP from almost everything political regarding the White House.
Biden took to brown nosing and groveling at the feet of Obama, kissing his feet and showering him with apologies, but it did no good. Having already disrespected the man, it proved too much for Obama’s ego to let go.

Instead of his talents being better used elsewhere, according to him, he was now being punished and having to respond to what he is referring to “s*** jobs.” Instead of being glued to the President’s side, he was now having to tediously deal with miniscule issues such as, “handling the at-times petty Senate fights and calming the fears of the infamously paranoid President of Afghanistan Hamid Karzai.”
It explains the sudden decrease in publicity starring the bumbling Vice President, although many people thought that the result of his incident that eventually dubbed him, “double-barrel Joe.” Who knows? Maybe that does have something to do with it.
Obama apparently sought to shut him down from further humiliation both to Biden himself and the current administration. It doesn’t appear as if that was enough to slow ol’ Joe down however, as the next time he was seen on TV, during the State of the Union Address, he was off in the corner making funny faces. Remember this:
Biden however has had his eye on a little more than the VP’s office for his entire career. As John McCain explains, “Joe never stopped wanting to be president,” not even after the threat to swap him out with Hillary Clinton during Obama’s second term election.
Determined even more to fight for his position he was quick to urge Obama and his administration to squash the rumors, in which they did although not to Biden’s expectations.
It seems that Biden, still if provided the chance, would run for President. That doesn’t seem to be the case as many are expecting him to soon announce his retirement as the Democratic Party is already strongly eyeing Hillary for the 2016 run. According to the latest polls, she’s got a 60 point lead on the VP.
So what do you think–did Biden deserve to be shut out of governmental duty because Obama’s narcissistic ego, or could the United States government use a little less Biden anyways?
