“Summer of Recovery” ring a bell?
Via The Hill:
Vice President Biden said Friday that his focus was on helping President Obama to improve the economy, not the potential 2016 run he hinted at on the campaign trail earlier this month.
“There’s plenty of time to think about 2016,” Biden told the Wilmington News-Journal. “We’ve got to get this economy working. If three years from now the economy is not working, it’s not going to be worth doing much. This is all about making Barack an incredibly successful second-term president. That’s my focus.”
Biden had alluded to a possible presidential bid as recently as Election Day, when he was asked after voting if that would be his last time voting for himself.
“No, I don’t think so,” Biden said with a grin.
Earlier in the month, Biden seemed to downplay speculation, telling a voter who asked if he’s planning to run for president that he was “going to stick as vice president.”
The exchange came just days after Biden told the Republican brother of a supporter that the success of Obama administration policies would convince him to “vote for me in 2016.”
