While MSNBC spends today rerunning Santorum "I don't care about the unemployment rate" clips, Vice President Biden is blazing away in his Amazingly Clean and Articulate Mode about Obama. As Jennifer Epstein of Politico is reporting, Biden bent the arc of military history for Obama:
“You can go back 500 years. You cannot find a more audacious plan. Never knowing for certain. We never had more than a 48 percent probability that he was there,” Biden said at a fundraiser in New Jersey.
So forget every military attack since 1512. None of them can match Obama's audacity in Pakistan.
“Do any one of you have a doubt that if that raid failed that this guy would be a one-term president?” Biden asked. Obama, he said, “is willing to do the right thing and risk losing.”
Biden said he spends four to six hours a day with the president and watches him make decisions. “I’m telling you, man, this guy is not only smart as hell, he is absolutely ready to make the decision and stand back and live with it. No whining," the vice president said. "I literally do get to be the last guy in the room.”
