LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Jim Campbell, the President and CEO of General Electric’s Appliance and Lighting Division, was rushed to a doctor after he collapsed just before 11:30 a.m. Monday as Vice President Joe Biden was speaking.

Campbell, who was seated on a stool at the end of the stage set up inside a warehouse at GE’s Appliance Park in Louisville, fell from a stool and off the stage as Biden was nearing the end of his remarks. Biden paused and called for a doctor.

“Do we have a doctor here?” Biden asked. “Ladies and gentlemen, that’s a sad note to end this on. Do we have a doctor here?” According to GE spokeswoman Kim Freeman, Campbell appears to be fine, but was taken to an on-site medical clinic to be seen by a physician. As Campbell was taken away, Biden remarked: “So folks, as my grandfather used to say, ‘keep the faith.'”

Freeman says Campbell’s collapse appears to be heat-related.

Yeah, all that hot air from the podium.

    I’m not even sure why this was posted. It’s not funny. It’s not good political satire. It’s nothing, basically.

    Has DU really become this desperate for material?

    think ge coulda supplied em with AC

  3. McCullough says:

    Yeah, I could have posted the death of Sen Byrd…but I don’t think anyone gives a shit.

    Pretending to faint has got me out of a lot of really boring meetings. Fake epileptic attacks are also a great way to get out of dull parties.

  5. Rider says:

    Really this is the best you guys can do now?

  6. Bob says:

    No one gives a shit about this either, McCullough…

  7. Ah_Yea says:

    Aw, give McCullough a break!

    It’s not like we have anything more important to talk about, like McChrystal retiring so he can tell the world what he REALLY thinks about Obama, or

    Kagan’s nomination proceedings, or

    The McDonald’s gun ban lawsuit, or

    Russian spy network in America, or

    Iran having enough Uranium for two bombs, or

    Biden saying some jobs never coming back, or ….

    Nope, nothing more important here!!

    Nothing like a CEO of a company that is making billions upon billions on the global warming hoax standing next to the vice president of the administration funneling the money to him. Only thing that would have made this better would be Al Gore giving him a reach around.

  9. jescott418 says:

    Well I guess you have to do what you have too in order to get Biden to shut up!!

  10. Dave says:

    Keep what faith? Oh, right… “Everybody let’s roll out our prayer rugs, face east and repeat after me.”

  11. Awake says:

    Cheap shot.

  12. Gildersleeve says:

    Coincidence? I think NOT! Biden is simply a DRAG.

  13. deowll says:

    There are some things a person can’t endure even for money and listening to Joe Biden babble on a hot humid day is high on my list.

    It’s one thing to staff drones.

    Quite another, my elitist friends, to ask them to show up while we talk.

    You see, our drones can’t be expected to actually listen to what we say. Their melon heads will kill over like this pussy’s did. All that hoopin and holler’in — their drone melon heads turn to shit. Like this one’s did.

    This is a cautionary tale, fellow elitists. Don’t drag the empty-headed, tele-programmed drones to your speeches. They’ll make you look like a boring ass, and pass out on you when they realize what a big cluster fuck they’ve accompanied themselves with.

    Smaller minds can’t appreciate what you and I, fellow elitists, have planned for this world: a better tomorrow, where we’re rich and they do what we say. But we’ll help them — we’ll guide the sheep into a blissful tomorrow.

  16. If a country doesn’t innovate it stagnates….BOING!!

  17. Scooter says:

    Sorry, I fail to see how the headline remotely states what happened. Biden did the apropriate thing given the situation. Geez guys what do you expect him to do?? the secret service was right there and, it is not like biden is a doctor.

    to quote Awake, “Cheap shot”.
