August 13, 2012 President Obama and GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan were in Iowa, where they told supporters that the general election would give voters a stark choice between two visions of the nation's future. With Mitt Romney in Florida and Joe Biden in North Carolina, all four candidates worked to energize supporters in key swing states.
July 12, 2012 When the vice president said access to the ballot box should be "expanded and unencumbered," he got a big cheer. Republicans, he said, see a future where "voting is made harder, not easier."
June 27, 2012 Mitt Romney's campaign got no satisfaction from The Washington Post. The newspaper refused to retract a piece that tied the Republican presidential candidate to the outsourcing of U.S. jobs overseas when he ran Bain Capital.
May 7, 2012 What matters is "who do you love?" And, whether you'll be loyal to that person, not the genders of those involved, the vice president says.
April 26, 2012 A president seeking re-election against a backdrop of a lackluster economy would be remiss if he didn't stress his unique roles as the nation's top policymaker for international relations and the military's commander-in-chief. President Obama and his campaign clearly intend to exploit those credentials for all they're worth while pointing out Mitt Romney's lack of them.
March 15, 2012 Vice President Biden took on the traditional role that has been reserved to those who have previously served in his position as the political wing man for a president seeking re-election: he went on the attack.
September 21, 2011 The president has "let me loose" to hit the campaign trail, Biden told supporters Tuesday. Meanwhile, a new poll shows a majority of voters believe the president will lose "to any Republican" next year.
September 14, 2011 Solyndra got $535 million from the government. It has since failed. The Washington Post says White House officials asked repeatedly how soon its loan would be OK'd. The White House says it expressed "active interest," but didn't pressure reviewers.
August 18, 2011 In what may be metaphors for the edgy U.S.-China relationship, two high-profile American visits to Beijing were marred by pushing and in one case actual fighting between representatives of the U.S. and Chinese. One incident involved pushing and shoving between U.S. and Chinese officials at an appearance by Vice President Biden.
August 2, 2011 In choosing Biden to be his vice president, he apparently got even more, seemingly the only person in the Obama White House trusted enough by Sen. Mitch McConnell, the Kentucky Republican and minority leader, to make the debt-ceiling deal happen and prevent the nation from a first-time ever default.
June 24, 2011 The White House press office announced that President Obama and Vice President Biden will talk with Senate leaders Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell next week in a bid to restart stalled debt-ceiling talks.
May 16, 2011 The White House released financial disclosure forms Monday for both President Obama and Vice President Biden. Worth noting, especially on this day when the U.S. government reached its debt limit, is that the wealthy president is doing his part to help fund the highly indebted U.S. government.
April 18, 2011 President Obama and Michelle, the First Lady, reported $1.7 million in income for 2010, most of it from continuing royalties from his best-selling books. The Obamas also reported donating 14.2 percent of their income to charity.
