Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. has made an appearance at the Capitol for the Senate’s procedural vote on Debo P. Adegbile to head the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division.

The vote is expected to be extremely close and could require Biden to vote.

When asked by CQ Roll Call when Biden arrived Wednesday morning if he was there to break a tie, the vice president said, “If I have to.”

    Get in there Joe, do your part in the continuing destruction of America under the criminal Obama regime.

    • Raylusk

      Just shut up with your conservative lies.

      • konc1

        How did that vote work out for all you criminal loving insane liberals, we will be culling the democrats big time come november, see you then.

        • Raylusk

          It worked just fine. By the way you morons were all boasting this time in 2012 how you were going to take the Presidency and the Senate. How did that vote work out for you? But even if you do take the Senate, it means nothing. Because you will have to deal with a Democrat President. I am laughing at your stupidity.

          • konc1

            Keep gargling that Obama man pudding, seems to be your true calling in life, you useful idiot.

    • Wuthie

      yeah, Bush didn’t do a good enough job.

      • konc1

        Looks like 7 democrats just were not scummy enough to go along with your liberal trash in the Senate and your fuhrer Obama.

        • Wuthie

          LOL. Does it make you feel better calling people names? When you try to cut down other people, that is usually a sign you feel inferior to them. Maybe one of these days you might feel good enough about yourself that you won’t have to try to cut others and use facts in arguments. Then again maybe not.

  • David Stovall

    Abodobole didn’t just act as a lawyer, he went to the streets and campaigned to try and make the cop killer a hero, race card and all.That Obama would nominate such a person , really tells what he is.He put his fellow Democrats in a bind and showed disregard for our people. He is not one of us.
