Biden says he’s not worried about gunshots fired near home.

Law enforcement authorities boosted security at Biden’s Wilmington home after several gunshots rang out from a vehicle speeding by the property Saturday night. Security cameras outside Vice President Joe Biden’s Delaware home did not record a gunman who opened fire near the house Saturday night, a Secret Service official confirmed to NBC News on Tuesday. Biden defended his boss’s State of the Union address Wednesday morning, saying that Republicans are trying to claim credit for a recovery caused by programs the Obama administration has put in place. “Did you notice that when all the talk about the recovery finally having been solved, all the things the president said in the beginning of the speech, including reducing the deficit significantly, have you noticed an awful lot of Republicans the last three weeks or four weeks are claiming credit for this recovery?” Mr. He said: “I’m not at all worried.” Biden also told NBC on Wednesday he thought he “could do a good job” as president, but added it was too soon to say if he would try to succeed Barack Obama. Biden said on “CBS This Morning.” “What caused the recovery were the programs that, in fact, we put in place,” he said. “All the president’s saying is don’t stop the momentum now — you’re acknowledging there’s real momentum.

The Secret Service has said that a vehicle drove by Biden’s home — the vice president and his wife, Jill, were not home at the time — and that several shots were heard before the vehicle left “at a high rate of speed.” The paper reported that the security system at the home had been so problematic in the past, at times generating false alarms, that the Secret Service turned it off for months last year. Biden said “being president and being leader of the Senate is two different things”, noting a vice-president’s constitutional responsibility to occasionally preside over the Senate. Now let’s keep it going — let’s get the middle class a better deal.” “Have you ever heard the Republicans use the phrase middle class as much as you’ve heard in the last year? He said instead that his goal is “to keep this recovery moving.” Biden also said he had “plenty of time” between now and this summer to make a decision about running.
