Vice President Joe Biden is the biggest cheerleader of the president’s decision to raid Osama bin Laden’s compound and, on Monday, he offered new praise for the choice Obama made last spring.
“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,” Biden said at a fundraiser in Morris Township, N.J.
“Do any one of you have a doubt that if that raid failed that this guy would be a one-term president?” Biden asked. Obama, he said, “is willing to do the right thing and risk losing.”
