By my count this is the third time Biden has referred to Obama’s “backbone like a ramrod.”

Via Politico:

Vice President Joe Biden frames the mission to kill Osama bin Laden in stark terms at a fundraiser Monday night. From the pool report:

“This guy’s got a backbone like a ramrod,” he said, referring to Obama’s decision to kill Osama bin Laden. “He said, ‘Go,’ knowing his presidency was on the line. Had he failed in that audacious mission, he would’ve been a one-term president.”
