In light of Vice President Joe Biden's recent napping episode caught on cam here, we thought we'd dig up some of our best naptime videos featuring your favorite sleepy politicians.
Napping greatest hits – Our very own Jeanne Moos highlights political napping that goes back to the Reagan administration, when the president nodded off in front of Pope John Paul II, and Dick Cheney taking a snooze at a briefing.
Presidential REM - In all fairness, many of these sleepy lawmakers do work long hours. CNN's Jason Carroll looks back at presidential sleeping habits and gives some insight into why our politicians sometimes get caught with their eyes closed.
Budget Z's - Despite the hype over the California budget crisis, this hearing shows that clearly not everyone was interested.
Hey throw a shoe at biden and see if he can duck as fast as bush did. LOL
Up yours Idiot!!! Obama will get relected and then U can eat your words sprinkled with horse manureA.
Old man Biden couldn't keep up with a young energetic Black Prez. with amazing blazing amount of NON-STOP Energy! Folks it’s in the GENE!
Eat your hearts IMPORTANT Racist GOP and Tea Baggers! This president has MORE energy than ALL US President put together ........................ Period! Major beneficiary? The First Lady!
Just what i wanted to spend my tax dollars on, sleeping politicians. Let someone in the military fall asleep on duty. They can recieve a reduction in rank, loss of 1/2 a months pay for 2 months and possibly confinement. All will making a fraction of what these weasles make.
Typo i previous post!
It’s "IMPOTENT" not "IMPORTANT" as corrected below:-

whats the news on this, everyone is sleeping in washington right now.
That's why it took them so long to get a budget passed, LOL
What's the big deal. Maybe the man was up all night working to help this stupid ignorant nation. We as a people are so ept to see the left before the right. The negative things are focused on more than the positive things. Our president and vice president is working more than any other president before and yet the GOP refuse to recognize the truth. Why? Because they are the frills of the DEVIL.
Wow, it happens all the time. Its not a big deal. Thank you CNN for making sure I again don't misjudge Obama and his administration.
Political narcolepsy - OR, is it political apathy? If they can fire air traffic controllers for sleeping on the job, why can't we fire politicians for the same thing? Very symbolic of our "crashing" economy.. maybe because there is no guidance for a smooth landing.
thanks. Yeah sure I winked off in many a boring lectures & seminars.
I just remembered though that I didn't get a penny for doing that and no perks either. Do I file a claim somewhere?
Perhaps this phenomenon is truly bi-partisan... politicians are boring.
Naps are important.
