Obama Faced Tougher Decisions Than FDR, Biden Says

Vice President Joe Biden today assured a group of campaign donors in Wisconsin that Republican criticism of President Obama’s leadership style doesn’t match up with what he’s witnessed firsthand.

“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.”

Many beginning cosmetology students have to make the same decisions.

It's already curled, dumbass.

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.”

Except that his mother-in-law lives in his house, and his wife tells him what he can and cannot do.

That’s why Obama picked Biden for VP. Ole’ Joe will believe anything you tell him. And repeat it.

FDR didn’t have to spend his time reminding Garner, Wallace or Truman to breathe. Obama’s toughest decision is whether to remind Slow Joe to inhale or just let nature take its course.

Yeah, FDR had been at war against Nazi`s Axis and Imperial Japanese Forces for ~4 years.

Obummer has been at war against Americans for 4 years.

I think it is the vacations. With slower air planes FDR had a much smaller set of vacation spots to choose from. For Obama it was Cape Cod or Hawaii or Spain or Indonesia etc. FDR was not only limited by travel modes available but War in Europe and Asia meaning for much of his term a vacation speech in Berlin or Cairo or Singapore were mostly out of the question.

Biden just gets stupider and stupider as time goes on. It doesn’t seem possible a man this stupid could hold a job but the VP position doesn’t require much.

He congratulated Dr Pepper today! They crucified Dan Quayle for one misspelled word and this cretin has a gaf a day and is revered and never reported on. If we could wipe our butts with biden's words... they would then have meaning.

If you blew in the designated extra’s ear, would you feel a breeze coming out of the other one, or would it be further down? My opinion of the Delaware voter is getting way down there!

FDR had to deal with having Polio.

Obama has to deal with having Biden.
The American People have to deal with having both of them.
