Joe Biden, Osama bin Laden raid, New Jersey fundraiser, Obama, 3/19/2012, 500 years

"You can go back 500 years. You cannot find a more audacious plan.
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."

"Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive," Biden said, according to the pool report. "Think about it."

“I’m telling you, man, this guy is not only smart as hell, he is absolutely ready to make the decision and stand back and live with it. No whining,"
the vice president said. "I literally do get to be the last guy in the room.”

Biden said he spends four to six hours a day with the president and watches him make decisions.
Biden was speaking at a fundraiser in Morris Township, N.J.
Tickets for the fundraiser started at $1,000 and went up to $5,000 for a VIP reception.
There were 140 guests and, in all, the pool reporter estimated that the event brought in about $400,000.
