Some Things Are Best Unsaid
From the NY Daily News:
It's the Joe Biden you didn’t know — and might not want to see.
Secret Service agents dread being assigned to protect the vice president, in part because Biden’s a big fan of skinny dipping, according to a new tell-all book.
In “The First Family Detail,” author Ronald Kessler quotes unnamed Secret Service agents dishing about the supposedly “hidden lives” of Presidents and the other important people they protect.
Biden is portrayed as being more interested in coming off as a “regular Joe” than being potentially responsible for the nation’s nuclear codes.
Not to mention he’s a guy who apparently doesn’t have a problem getting naked.
“Agents say that, whether at the vice president’s residence or at his home in Delaware, Biden has a habit of swimming in his pool nude,” Kessler writes.
“Female Secret Service agents find that offensive.”
Those Secret Service folks need extra combat pay for having to watch that spectacle.
And if were a male Republican, they would have been crucified and would be accused of sexual harassment for swimming naked in front of female agents and probably would be called a pervert for his hobby.
And then there is this:
More serious is Biden’s insistence, according to Kessler, that his official motorcade not interfere with his neighbors back in his home turf of Delaware.
That means the veep puts an uncomfortable — perhaps even dangerous — distance between himself and the vehicles carrying his physician and the 40-pound “football” that enables him, if necessary, to authorize the launching of a nuclear warhead, the book claims.
So, he has no problem and should be commended for looking out for his neighbors, but apparently, he couldn't care less about the rest of the people in the country.
Last week he was in Las Vegas and he and his motorcade caused huge traffic nightmares as he traveled to and from the Las Vegas Strip/airport to downtown Henderson for a fundraiser for a Democrat House candidate. Yeah, Joe, thanks for watching out for us.
