We sure did.
Vice President Joe Biden, in post-debate comments streamed to campaign watch parties across the nation, reiterated some of President Obama’s points and urged supporters to “press even harder” in the weeks ahead.
“Folks, I hope you saw what I saw tonight: two candidates with fundamentally different visions and a fundamentally different set of values,” he said. “And I hope and appreciate that, that you know just how, how, how high the stakes are, that you all appreciate it.”
The vice president said he thought the president “made it absolutely clear that he believes hard work should be rewarded, that accountability should be demanded and that everyone, everyone who works at it, should have a fair shot at a better deal.
“I also thought the president did an excellent job in laying out his specific concrete, plans for restoring the middle class, from ending tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas to giving tax credits to companies who bring jobs home, to preparing 100,000 new math and science teachers and training two million workers at our community colleges so we can continue to have the best, most productive work force in the world.”
