“He has never wavered”

Accepting the nomination for Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden talked about watching President Obama work in the White House:

“Folks, I’ve watched him. He has never wavered. He never, never backs down. He always steps up. And he always asks in every one of those critical meetings the same fundamental question: How is this going to affect the average American? How is this going to affect people's lives? That's what's inside this man. That's what makes him tick. That's who he is. And folks, because of the decisions he has made, and the incredible strength of the American people, America has turned the corner.”

“Ladies and gentlemen, I’m here to tell you what I think you already know, but I watch it up close—bravery resides in the heart of Barack Obama. And time and time again, I witnessed him summon it. This man has courage in his soul, compassion in his heart, and a spine of steel. And because of all the actions he took, because of the calls he made, because of the determination of American workers—and the unparalled bravery of our special forces—we can now proudly say what you've heard me say the last six months: Osama bin Laden is dead, and General Motors is alive!”

“The choice is stark. Two different visions. Two different value sets. But at its core, the difference is able to be reduced to a fundamental difference. You see? You, we, most Americans, have incredible faith in the decency and hard work of the American people, and we know what has made this country—it's the American people!”

“My fellow Americans, we now find ourselves at the hinge of history. And the direction we turn is, not figuratively, is literally in your hands.”
