de Blasio Strikes Back

Mayor Bill de Blasio doesn't care for Vice President Joe Biden's criticisms of New York's LaGuardia Airport.

Biden on Thursday likened the airport to "some third-world country" while touting more modern airports in places like Hong Kong. De Blasio defended the airport on Friday when asked about Biden's comments.    He said the remarks were not Biden's "finest moment" and called them "inappropriate."  He says that was "not the right way to talk about it."

Recalling his days as an upstate New York college student, Vice President Joe Biden says it seemed back then that companies like Kodak, Bausch and Lomb and Xerox would go strong forever. But at a community college campus Wednesday, he said times and jobs have changed, and pushed for educational programs that train students for today's higher tech jobs.

Biden's remarks came during a visit to Monroe Community College with his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, a community college professor, along with State University Chancellor Nancy Zimpher and Education Commissioner John King Jr. in tow.

Is Joe Biden Eying A Run For The Presidency?

Originally published on Mon January 21, 2013 10:01 am

Transcript

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep.

Vice President Joe Biden first ran for president in the 1980s, an up and coming young pol who was knocked out of the race. He tried again in 2008 before becoming President Obama's running mate. Now, he starts another term still number two. But at a weekend inaugural event, he declared, I'm proud to be president of the United States. His son corrected him, though one persistent question is whether the vice president may try one more run in 2016.
