Biden takes cue from Michelle O: Grandkid travel ‘one of the great advantages of being VP’

The Obama girls aren’t the only family enjoying the perks of privilege.

Vice President Joe Biden’s grandkids do, too. That’s just life at the top for these Democrat champions of the poor.

Biden gave the game away Monday during an exhibit of the World Cup trophy in Washington attended by Brazilian Ambassador Mauro Vieira, according to CNS News.

“I literally — at Christmastime, Mr. Ambassador, I always sit with the kids the last five or — and say, well, where do you want to go this year? Because one of the great advantages of being vice president, I’m able to take, if I’m not going into a war zone, one of my grandchildren with me,” Biden said. “And I do take them all.”

It’s great that Biden considers on of the great advantages of being vice president the ability to dote on his grandkids on the job. It’s great that he can sit with them at Christmastime and say “where do you want to go this year?” Because there’s nothing the American taxpayer likes to hear more than how the vice president plans his foreign trips on the whims of his children’s children.

And guess what?

CNS reports this year, all the granddaughters want to go to the World Cup – which is being hosted for the Biden grandchildren’s enjoyment in Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro.

Obama’s ‘condolences’ complete with tasteless joke;
Twitter lashing follows

Not to nitpick. No rational person would begrudge a doting grandfather of the pleasures he can afford to shower on grandchildren. But when you consider the constant class-warfare of the Democrat demagogues (including Joe “put y’all back in chains” Biden) and the feigned outrage over “income inequality,” it’s more than a little galling to hear this shill for the credit card companies brag about how he likes to spend Christmas holidays deciding what cities the Secret Service will be protecting him and his grandkids in next year.

Guess taxpayers can just be glad the World Cup’s not being played in China. Even if it would have been a “real treat” the young’uns.
