(Guest Post by Matthew Ladner)
I’ve seen past this whole act of being just another paternalistic, self-absorbed north-eastern liberal, and grown to appreciate Vice President Joe Biden. Whatever his other faults, the dude will shoot straight with you, something we Texans appreciate. Just check out this quote from a recent trip to Delaware, where he pleads with the teachers union not to blow the stimulus money:
“I genuinely need your help to make this work because, folks, look at it this way. We’ve been given all the ammunition. If we shoot and miss, if we squander the opportunity, tell me how long you think it’s going to take for another American president to go and ask for more dollars to correct the education system,” Biden said to the Delaware State Education Association members at the Atlantic Sands Hotel & Conference Center in Rehoboth Beach.
The sound you just heard was me turning over a giant hourglass. I’ll try to resist using this quote for a few years, but it isn’t going to be easy. Keep them coming Joe!
