    You've even gone so far as to act like you always knew it was there.

    Now learn to comprehend what you read.

    I said-

    I didn't know about this until Biden told about it. I added the line "loose lips sink ships" because once a secret like this is out..the ship is sunk.


    I then seperated that comment on this instance with ///////// and made a comment overall about the left and their flippant dismissal(as displayed by you) of anything like this.


    So giggle it up get slapped on the ass by posters who do the same, mock people..call me a NEOCON!.....it matters not at all to me. I'll simply use it to repeat what I said and why.





    I notice this more and more form many(not all) posters here..instead of bothering to reply to what a person says for what they said they either play extreme word technicalities or simply mock anyone who disagrees with their vaunted opinion.

    Not impressed.
    The reason that we are not taking this overly seriously is that it really is not news. Nothing revealed that will come as a surprise to any one who would ever care to know. Was Biden an idiot? Yes. Is this a big deal? Well, more than telepromptergate, and shoegate, NotreDameGate, and all the other trivial things that some on the right are complaining about, but not by much.

    Things are only a secret to the public at large. The bad guys already know our so-called secrets, so this is a non-starter.

    Some, but hardly all. That is no excuse to stupidly talk about those secrets in inappropriate places as Biden did.

    By the way...does any one actually like Biden?

    most of the "bunkers" are left over from cold war days. The Russians know where each one of them are and it's not classified with them. It's just an excuse to whine about Joe Biden.

    Yeah, like no one knew about the bunkers. Well maybe not Mary Matalin, but then again we're talkin' Mary Matalin...LOL.

    I'm sure the wingnuts were just as outraged at Cheney for mentioning the bunkers back in 2002...
    "My [Secret Service] agent all of a sudden materialized right beside me and said, 'Sir, we have to leave now.' He grabbed me and propelled me out of my office, down the hall, and into the underground shelter in the White House," Cheney said
    [...]
    A relic of the Cold War, the deep underground bunker became the vice president's base of operations on the first day of a new war.

    Considering who she worked for, I am almost certain she knows about more bunkers than we do.

    By the way, and totally off topic, does any one else find the fact that she is married to James Carvelle kinda oddly romantic? Two people, at the tops of their fields but as opponents, and yet they still seem to share a deep abiding love.

Safe rooms and communications equipment in the White House? Surely not. I mean they wouldn't do that would they? Man I hope nobody spills the beans on that one.

    What really has he actually revealed here? Sure it's dumb to advertise, but it's a well known, highly secured locations to begin with. It's not beyond reason to assume there would be a highly secure bunker or safe room there. Besides, it's already common knowledge that a lot of highly sensitive, underground digging and construction were done there. Neighbors complained about it according to the article. Hmmm...wonder what that could have been for? Tornados?
    I don't see a big deal at all. Every citizen knows that the residences of top level officials and the capital etc have all of these types of protective areas... It's common knowledge there's a bunker below the white house, and I always had a thought there was something similar under the Vice Presidents residence- I even have an idea that there is a tunnel connecting the bunker under the Vp's residence to the White House.

    Apparently people like us are abnormal in that we can look at this and go "huh, so they really do have a bunker under the VP's house...who didn't see that one coming."

    But some on this forum feel the need to blow this up into something it's not. It's feigned outrage. I don't give a **** that some folks on DP forums think Joe Biden has compromised our national security by telling some folks he has a secret bunker at his house. There is no way they can articulate exactly how it does in any reasonable fashion. It's just so much ado about nothing.

    FYI...Moon, this little mini rant was not directed at you. See separate response below.

    How? Just because it's classified does not mean it has any measurable impact upon our national security. If this is the stance we are going to take, then let's articulate just how this compromises our national security.

    Many people might suspect that there was a bunker under the VP's residence, but now that they know for sure, it narrows the focus of any type of planning that an adversary might be planing. We'll see if any more details are released.
    Well, if they were reasonably intelligent people to begin with, they would assume that there were protective measures or safe rooms to begin with. It is after all the VP's house and it is surrounded by armed guards, fences, and cameras. However, if they were so dumb as to think that once they pass the guards they are a deadbolt away from the VP, his family, and all those things the VP would keep at his house...well this "new" information about the secret bunker fortification might just make them think twice about even trying it. Or maybe they could bring a tank with a robotic laser arm or something?
    Regardless, this was a dumb move by the VP.
    Agreed.
