Vice President Biden cancels events due to storm; Andrea Mitchell declares victory in PA

The president has already returned to Washington, D.C., to monitor Hurricane Sandy from the White House, and now Vice President Biden has cancelled events in Ohio and Pennsylvania over the next three days, citing “an abundance of caution.”

MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, though, has used her training as a “real journalist” to read between the lines. Internal polling showing a sure win for Obama in Pennsylvania must be the reason Biden has canceled his Scranton visit. If the state were still in play, would the campaign let a little Frankenstorm keep Biden off the stump?

Once again, leave it to the rest of us to ask the questions reporters used to ask.

Three letters: S-A-N-D-Y.

Mitchell might want to turn off MSNBC and switch over to ABC for the afternoon. It’s not the winds that have Pennsylvania suddenly leaning away from Obama.

    Biden’s coming to Ocala Florida tomorrow…heard no signs were allowed, yet when Paul Ryan spoke a few weeks ago, we had to put up with the Obama supporters; their chants, signs…

    I don’t think Andrea is very good at guessing.

    Memo to Angrea Mitchell:

    “Drunk, Botox laden and stupid is no way to go through life.”

    (Apologies to Dean Wormer of ‘Animal House’).

      in other news, the sandra fluke rally being held in the dollar tree parking lot was canceled because a breeze blew the banner off her suv

      • Jack Deth

        “Film at 11!”

        You need to add that, Brett. Gives a sense of urgency!
        Like an exclamation point after ‘Forward’.

        Good catch!

    Andrea Mitchell is anything but an objective journalist.

  • disappearing moderate

    Well that’s settled. Any questions about Benghazi, Ms. Mitchell?

  • Alan Beasley

    I know how to get Obama/Biden to go campaign – just tell them Americans are dieing overseas and need help ASAP!

  • stuckinIL4now

    If AM already knew, why didn’t she say so sooner? Then again, Biden wasn’t going to make a difference anyway.

  • JackD

    Andrea should look into her crystal ball and see how well Obama does if the storm damage keeps the turnout low in Philadelphia, but not the rest of the state – it will be Senator Tom Smith and President Romney.

  • Owen007

    So, because Biden is cancelling his trip, it has to be because PA is a lock and not because of a raging storm? Wow, what an idiot. Hey, Andrea, why don’t you come on down to the Philly suburbs tomorrow and go for a jog? After all, you seem to think it’ll be oh so pleasant.

    Whatever this administration TOUCHES turns to ash. Most recently Odrama said he was “rooting for the Tigers” in the World Series so I knew, immediately, Detroit was doomed to lose. His track record of backing losers is rock solid (OWS, Arab Spring, Solyndra et al, GM and on and on). He’s also expressed great faith in another loser, Joe Biden.

    Every time Biden opens his mouth there’s a gaffe ready to leap from his lips. If Dr. Sholes came out with a mouth rinse he could be their spokesman. His not appearing anywhere is welcome news for the campaign, to be sure.

    But, PA “not in play”? I wouldn’t count on that just yet.

    • RightThinking1

      Thus, my disappointment that Joe will not visit PA. Some many gaffes, so little time…

  • cfcscott1905

    My God, Andrea Mitchell is Joe Biden’s soul-mate…

    • lainer51

      or twin?

  • Robert Whitney

    Maybe Andrea needs a little Chris Christy Lecture in regards to storms and what can happen. Andrea is a Hack!

  • snuggle

    This must be that storm they said was coming when Obama went from a 72,000 seat venue to a 15,000 seat theater at the DNC

    • irishamrep

      lol that’s great

  • Doug C DAV

    WAIT!!!! All Obama has to do is Wave his hand and the clouds will part, little blue birds will all come out and tweet Zip A Dee Do Dah and all will be right in the World once again.

  • rbtpowell

    Great scoop…………..

  • Stupid Republic

    All this time, I presumed elections were decided by voters. How silly of me to not think it was the shrewish wife of the head of the Fed that decided who won what state.

  • Chip

    Oh Seabiscuit!!! You make me laugh so hard!!!!

  • Brett McMicken

    biden canceled? did anyone other than andrea notice?

  • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

    Biden on Sandy, “It’s a big ef’n deal.”

  • Ramone Love

    Let’s all take bets on whether the coming MSM onslaught to delay the elections will start tomorrow or Wednesday.

  • Donna

    Andrea Mitchell is just so …shrewish.

  • Guest

    Yes, Andrea Mitchell, Biden is cancelling in Pennsylvania because it’s in the bag for Obama and there is no need to campaign there. /sarc

  • spawnio

    Angry Mitchell is still in hope and change mode Biden sent her the wrong memo.

  • TocksNedlog

    Remember, this woman finds Alan Greenspan attractive, so it may be a bit difficult to see the same things she sees.

    who are you – the D.C. Medium? You have no clue, but keep trying to convince yourself! I LIVE in Penna…Romney signs in yards running about 10-1 for your guy–
    Don’t get too elated just yet..

  • John Hanover

    Pathetic, here’s a ” human interest ” story for you…most sane and mature adults put aside politics in a situation like we have going on with the storm.

  • Terry

    Math is hard? Try Geography!

  • clyon

    Andrea Mitchell is the epitome of all blonde jokes.

  • Earl Edwards

    You just keep telling your viewers that Andrea, Mitt thanks you.
