So, the health care reform was officially signed off upon today and Vice-President Joe Biden was, well, really “fucking” excited about it.
In an introduction of President Barack Obama, Biden is found to say — albeit in a muffled kind of way — “This is a big fucking deal.”
I can dig it; old Joe was a bit over-excited and forgot that the mics were live. This kind of stuff happens, even on international television. I personally found it pretty endearing. Hell, even the President thought it was some funny shit. You can hear him giggle like a little girl around the :15 mark.
I’m obviously not the only one who appreciated VP Biden’s off-the-cuff remarks; White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs thought the whole thing was pretty entertaining, too.
On Gibbs’ Twitter page?
“And yes Mr. Vice President, you’re right…”
Classic. And so appropriate for such a monumental occasion in 2010.
