Joe Biden’s days as Sheriff in charge of the Recovery Act are winding down, and with that extra free time he’s now obviously been charged with dispersing a massive aggrandizement stimulus on behalf of his boss:
“I’ve watched him make decisions that would make another man or woman’s hair curl,” Biden told the crowd of 150 inside the Italian Community Center in Milwaukee, according to a pool reporter on scene.
Biden, who has said he’s the last man in the room with Obama before a tough call, often attests that his boss has a “backbone like a ramrod.”
And today he said that mettle — and the “serious problems” Obama faced upon taking office — put the president in a class of his own.
“I think I can say … no president, and I would argue in the 20th century and including now the 21st century, has had as many serious problems which are cases of first-instance laid on his table,” Biden said. “Franklin Roosevelt faced more dire consequences, but in a bizarre way it was more straightforward.”
Tougher decisions than all other presidents in the 20th and 21st centuries? Tougher than World War I, the Great Depression, World War II, the Bay of Pigs (in spite of what Joe says the Cuban Missile Crisis didn’t end because JFK told Castro “after my election I have more flexibility” with Fidel replying “I’ll transmit this information to Nikita”), Vietnam, Jimmy Carter’s bunny attack, the Iran hostage crisis, ending the cold war and 9/11?
Update: Biden’s on a roll this week: “We want to create a global minimum tax.”
