(The Hill)Vice President Joe Biden got visibly upset during late night White House talks on avoiding a government shutdown.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) told reporters Friday morning that Biden doesn’t get upset very often, but that he did after hours of negotiations with Republicans at the White House.

“Vice President Biden, who sat very silent through this whole meeting, finally said — and Joe doesn’t get upset very often and he usually doesn’t speak for short segments — but last night he said: ‘Well fine, let the American people decide this issue,’ ” Reid told reporters.

Update: T2M makes a good point:

“Well fine, let the American people decide this issue,”

Ummm the American people HAVE decided the issue, ‘member November?
