Reporting from Toledo, Ohio The rescue of the American auto industry was Vice President Joe Biden's opening argument as he began making the case for the president's reelection here today.
In remarks at a local United Auto Workers union hall, Biden hailed the "courageous" action Obama took to save American automakers General Motors and Chrysler and hundreds of thousands of jobs with them. The approach favored by Republicans, Biden said, is "sort of a cautionary tale" for how they'd manage the economy at large.
"The guy I work with every day, the president he didn't flinch," Biden said. He knew that resurrecting the industry wasnt going to be popular. He knew he was taking a chance. But he believed he wasnt going to give up a million jobs in the iconic industry American invented."
The role of a running mate is traditionally one of attack dog, and Biden signaled he's ready to do so even if the GOP nominating fight promises to wage on.

I would have characterized it as a disconnect between mouth and brain rather than lack of the later.
While this story certain has its considerable humor there is a terribly sad part as well. First, there are a large number of voters who believe it. Second, our leaders, as a group, are cosmically pathetic in their considerable lack of ability. In an adult world these guys would never be taken seriously and even exposed for what they are. In fact they’d not be given such a broad forum to air their shallow thoughts. We seem to be in an Age of Stupid where adults are no longer welcome.
It is a very effective tool for their simple minded supporters. Seriously.
“Whats up with all of this over-the-top language by Dems?”
Their preaching to their base. MY GOLDEN RETRIEVER has more brains than their base.
That is down right laughable.
“Their” = “They’re”, first time.
Sure! Spine of steel, what happened to his wrists?
I thought it was “a backbone like a ramrod”, not a “spine of steel”. Biden is a goofy b@st@rd.
I didn’t know Jello had come out with a “Steel” flavor . . .
But, in order to impose coercive government control and gain union support, he was willing to take money out of the pockets of millions of citizens and destroy millions of other jobs and potential jobs and do irreparable harm to many citizens.
Spine of steal, for sure. Haven’t heard a peep about the bondholders or dealership owners who had their property seized. Are there lawsuits brewing, or is everyone intimidated?
