And it wasn’t long until he committed another verbal gaffe, this time stumbling about adding a high-speed line in Florida when he was Vice President under Barack Obama. We think.
Watch for yourself:
BIDEN: “Barack allowed me to put together a budget for Amtrak and it had money for high speed rail — 200 MPH — from Charlotte, another line going from…in Florida, down to Tampa, another line — if we had…we’d have that tunnel fixed in New York now.”

Anyway, try to get through this “cute story” if you can. It must be nice to have the media cover for him like this:
