Biden Nod Off? (PHOTOS)

Biden Nod Off? Joe Biden was caught, with a nod off, during President Obama’s speech on the national debt. This has to be an embarassing situation for the Obama administration.

Did the veep not get enough sleep Tuesday night or was he just deep in thought, eyes closed?

Hard to say. But Vice President Joe Biden appeared to pull a Larry Summers on Wednesday afternoon during President Obama’s speech on the nation’s debt.

Cameras caught Biden with his eyes closed for a few seconds as Obama discussed Medicare. (Not helping Biden’s case: Bright-eyed Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner who sat beside Biden appeared to look directly at the president as he spoke.)

After a bit, Biden appeared to catch himself — he opened up his eyes and then bowed his head.

Mike Huckabee said the vice president was praying, not sleeping.

“He was praying that nobody will find out just how disingenuous they are about actually cutting the expenses and hoping and praying that the American people don’t catch on to the games that they’re trying to hoist upon us,” Huckabee said on Fox’s Glenn Beck Show Wednesday.
