JIM LEHRER: Vice President Biden had a new warning for city and county officials today: spend the federal stimulus money wisely. The officials were in Washington for a day of schooling on the $787 billion program. Biden urged them not to use it for things like swimming pools, tennis courts, or golf courses.
JOSEPH BIDEN, Vice President of the United States: Because of the rules, the president and I canâ€™t stop you from doing some things, but Iâ€™ll show up in your city and say, â€œThis was a stupid idea.â€
You think Iâ€™m kidding? This is the only part the president was right about: Donâ€™t mess with Joe, because I mean it. Iâ€™m serious, guys. Iâ€™m serious. Iâ€™m absolutely serious.
Don’t mess with Joe! He will be coming to a community near you.
