"Gird your loins. We're gonna win with your help, God willing, we're gonna win, but this is not gonna be an easy ride. This president, the next president, is gonna be left with the most significant task. It's like cleaning the Augean stables, man. This is more than just, this is more than – think about it, literally, think about it – this is more than just a capital crisis, this is more than just markets. This is a systemic problem we have with this economy."Biden goes on to preidct that no matter how much the fans love Obama today, they'll change their tune before long:
Because I promise you, you all are gonna be sitting here a year from now going, 'Oh my God, why are they there in the polls? Why is the polling so down? Why is this thing so tough?' We're gonna have to make some incredibly tough decisions in the first two years. So I'm asking you now, I'm asking you now, be prepared to stick with us. Remember the faith you had at this point because you're going to have to reinforce us.Gee... couldn't that prediction have been made about President Bush just 4 years ago? Oh wait, comparisions to Bush only work when you're trying to slam Sen. McCain.
"There are gonna be a lot of you who want to go, 'Whoa, wait a minute, yo, whoa, whoa, I don't know about that decision'. Because if you think the decision is sound when they're made, which I believe you will when they're made, they're not likely to be as popular as they are sound. Because if they're popular, they're probably not sound."Great; so Biden is planning on making decisions that people will regret. If I had said that last week, critics might call me partisan or negative (dare I say, mean-spirited). But when Biden says it, well, the masses applaud.
