Gotta Watch: Biden's speech swap; goodbye Gibbs; congress-light

Biden speechless - Only a child destined for politics would be clever enough to steal Vice President Joe Biden's speech. Here, Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden's three-year-old son swipes Biden's speech and refuses to give it back until Biden brokers a deal with him for a mint. We'll be keeping an eye on you, William Wyden.


Best of the briefing room – Next month, press secretary Robert Gibbs will be leaving the White House briefing room for good. Here's a collection of some of our favorite press room moments.


Lighter side of Congress – Yesterday as the 112th Congress convened, we were keeping track of some of the lighter moments of the day. And what would a Congressional gathering be without another slip-up from Vice President Biden.

    I think that the mint was probably worth more and more interesting.

    People of the United States of America,
    The CNN Headline should really read;

    " VP Biden caught RED HANDED in Senate Bribery Scandle,
    calls for his Resignation run Rampant".

    Republicans would rather see us at WAR with the world and spending 1 billion a month on that than spending the money on healthcare for our entire nation. As long as there are contrasting views of opinion like this on where money should be spent, two things are certain, we will always be at war and the US government does not consider the health of its citizens worthy a investment.

      The only role of Government is National Defense. I do not want a Government taking my money and giving it to someone else. it does not help them or me.

      don't believe it? Since LBJ started the Great Society we gave over 6 Trillion dollars away and have more people depending on government than ever before. Why do you think that is? Consider a bird feeder for inspiration.

    why does it always come down to partisanship marbles? honestly none of these videos are really talking about spending money or bashing one another but for some reason you had to bash republicans. maybe you're the problem?

    and btw if you think this sounds messed up then try thinking about it a little more but. to preserve peace a nation must project power. if the US doesn't do it then trust me there will be another country filling the void and flexing their muscles. peace doesn't work when everyone is jockeying to be better than the next. there needs to be an alpha dog to keep the world at bay.
