Biden Pours On the Obama Praise: Killing Osama Was Most 'Audacious Plan' in 500 Years

News

"Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive. Think about it."

After seeing the new Obama documentary (or rather, propaganda film), it became obvious that the death of Osama bin Laden will become a rallying cry on the campaign trail. And if you needed confirmation, you need to look no further than a fundraiser with Joe Biden on Monday night where he made quite the incredible statement.

"You can go back 500 years. You cannot find a more audacious plan," Biden said of the bin Laden raid, according to the pool report. "Never knowing for certain. We never had more than a 48 percent probability that he was there.

"Do any one of you have a doubt that if that raid failed that this guy would be a one-term president?

"This guy is willing to do the right thing and risk losing."

He added later: "Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive," he said, according to the pool report. "Think about it."

There's a lot in there, including a one-term proposition without the bin Laden killing.

Even the Huffington Post found the statement a little over-the-top.

"Without taking anything away from the quite dangerous raid to get bin Laden, there are other commander-in-chief calls that could compete for historical audaciousness," HuffPo's Sam Stein wrote. "Biden's penchant for rhetorical flair may have been at work."
