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 hitsÂ – 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.[cnn-videoÂ url="http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/offbeat/2008/01/22/moos.greatest.naps.cnn"%5D
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.[cnn-videoÂ url="http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/politics/2009/01/23/am.carroll.presidential.sleep.cnn"%5D
Budget Z's – Despite the hype over the California budget crisis, this hearing shows that clearly not everyone was interested.[cnn-videoÂ url="http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/politics/2011/04/14/vault.ca.budget.nap.cachannel"%5D
Where is the Video??????
Right where you click on comments , right below the word "comments" to in in here.
When the Obama White House occupants are ousted in the next election, at least Biden can get a job as an Air Traffic Controller.....
I just spit/laughed water on my keyboard
lol... i guess the ffa is now gonna have to find Biden a co-worker to watch him sleep.
biden would be replacing bush the moron at the traffic control tower. he doesnt fall asleep cuz he has his army men and coke mounds to play with
Did you not see REGAN sleeping when the Pope was speaking???? I hope Jeb runs! He will be easy to take down>>>
Oh....that was good Tom...and the libs have such weak responses...makes it even funnier!
Why would you post a video with a commercial, then display after the commercial that the video is unavailable? Dumb.
Nice video... wish you had it where we could see IT and not just an advertisement.
Gee, I just told the guy where it was , didnt even watch it till Nick said something, Ya real dum dum's working at CNN. Sorry guys just calling like I see it.
CNN fails horribly at posting videos.
Be better off going to UTUBE
I can only say snzzzzzz! On Biden sleeping through the President's budget speeech...did you notice the people in the bacground??/ most of them were snoozing as well. BO's budget idea is a snoozer
Thanks , good to see some one else noticed , HEHE ðŸ™‚
Doing all nighters to fix the budget and deficit?
Wow what a bunch of snoozers. No wonder this country in troubling times. If caught sleeping on then job they should be fired. I still feel they should have their salaries cut in half for sleeping. Bet they would stay awake then.
If ya don't get fired then salary cut in half.
The Reagan thing was great, but it would have been even better if the Pope had fallen asleep too. Two old guys in comfy armchairs.
Ya, in the REAL world we would lose our jobs for snoozing , but they have the power. Maybe not all the oil but the AMERICAN MILITARY , is the next best thing as well as influence , not as much on that though now.
