On Wednesday night, during the House Democratic Caucus Virtual Issues Conference, Biden started bragging:

 “The economists told us we literally saved America from a depression.”

At the time, Biden was entrusted by Obama to ensure that there was no waste in the massive $787 billion spending program. Back in 2009, Obama said:

 “To you, he’s Mr. Vice President, but around the White House, we call him the sheriff.”

However, last night, the treacherous Biden said that he wishes Obama had not undercut his attempt to show off the success of the stimulus program:

 “[W]e didn’t adequately explain what we had done. Barack was so modest, he didn’t want to take, as he said, a ‘victory lap.’”

Yet, he showed no intention to stop, and went on attacking Obama as he urged Democrats not to make the same mistake that the former president did when promoting his newly proposed $1.9 trillion spending package:

“I kept saying, ‘Tell people what we did. He said, ‘We don’t have time. I’m not going to take a victory lap.’ And we paid a price for it, ironically, for that humility.”

He then stated that Americans are loving his spending package:

“We never had anything this urgent and this ambitious that was so widely embraced.”

Biden claimed that if Democrats manage to pass the package and promote it successfully, the victorious future of the party is guaranteed:

“I know parts of this — and everything else we seek to do — are not easy, but people are going to remember how we showed up in this moment, how we listened to them — to them — not special interests; to them — and how we took action.”

This speech was one more sign that the relationship between Obama and Biden is much weaker than the public believes.

Many noticed that Obama waited until virtually the last minute to endorse Biden.

The friendship between the two has been looked into in detail in the new book “Lucky” by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes.

Allen said:

“A lot of the reporting in the past has been about them being very close. And, you know, they describe themselves as having a mentor-mentee relationship, but it does not appear that they agree on who the mentor is. And I think that causes a lot of friction between the two of them and has over the course of, you know, basically 12 years now.”

According to them, Obama was confused about the fact that Biden continually said that he had asked the former president not to endorse him.

Parnes said:

“I think Obama folks, people around him were sort of scratching their heads every time Biden said ‘I asked him not to endorse me. And that was one of the most revealing details that we learned when we talked to people very close to him. These are people that talk to him regularly and basically said they never had that conversation. We don’t know where that came from. “
