He’s Vice president of the United States but according to al Qaeda he’s non-essential. Found in the late Osama bin Laden’s diaries was bin Laden’s posthumous note that it wouldn’t be worth al Qaeda’s trouble to kill the Vice president.
Bin Laden did have the president as a “top target” along with any of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Secretary of Defense.
Bin Laden noted that the vice president is not an important enough target. Biden was never mentioned by name only the designated office of the Vice presidency was. Bin Laden reason? It is because of Vice presidency’s constitutional weakness.

So does this mean that when non-essential government workers are furloughed Mr. Biden has to stay home without pay?
What is the one where we send the whole Soetoro administration home without pay… that’s right that’s called the 2012 elections. I can’t wait to make president Soetoro a former non-essential government employee before he fundamentally makes this the country formerly known as the United States of America.
