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.

You forgot the barf alert!
These people are downright delusional—always IMHO, of course.
But a business plan saved FORD!
Perhaps there is a typo in the headline. Shouldn’t it be, “spine of steal?”
If credit is to be given, it is not to Obama. President Bush created the auto industry bailouts. Obama just went along for the ride. For once it WAS Bush’s “fault.”
Shouldnt it be, spine of steal?
What’s up with all of this over-the-top language by Dems? It’s like one cliche after another in propping up their man.
I used to think Joe was putting on an act in worshipping little barry bassturd, but he has proven me wrong ... he really is this stupid. Plugs has a brain problem. Perhaps science can find one for him.
I wonder how the GM bondholders feel about Obama’s nerve?
As a redistributed/bamboozled taxpayer, I have committed to NEVER purchase a GM or Chrysler product until they have reconciled their debt to the taxpayers. EVER.
But they REALLY should pay back their bondholders as well.
Uh-oh! There was once a wannabe dictator named Iosif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili. In prison he adopted the name Stalin which translated as “Man of Steel”. He felt that it would be good for his image. Are Comrade Biden’s words a coincidence?
Domo arigato Mr 0b0t0.
. . . and yet he insists to everyone how smart he is. Maybe for a Democrat he is smart. It’s all relative I guess.
Gosh that Biden guy is a laugh a minute
Joe preaching to the choir. No gains.
God help us. The lunatics are running the asylum.
Oh yea, brave one that guy is!
