Sleepy VP Biden Dozes During Obama Speech

Barak H. Obama became the 44th President of the United States thanks in part to his oratory gifts. On the 2008 campaign trail, he drew comparisons to some of the greatest speakers to grace the oval office.

After two years in office, some supporters wonder whether he can once again inspire a nation.

On Wednesday, President Obama laid out his plans to cut the national deficit, in a highly-anticipated speech some called the first of the 2012 campaign season. The reactions were for the most part predictable - the speech was applauded by his supporters and panned by House Republicans and the Tea Party.

The only real surprise reaction came from the President's running-mate, Vice President Joe Biden, who appeared to have trouble staying awake through the early-afternoon speech.

To be fair, his eyes were only closed for about 30 seconds. Vice President Biden may just be sleep deprived like so many other politicians in Washington, D.C - just look at the woman nodding off behind him in the video.

Mr. Biden isn't the first person the president has put to sleep. Last year, a Kalamazoo, Mich. teen was caught on tape dozing off during a high school commencement speech delivered by President Obama.
