President Obama told the press corps Thursday night that he thought Vice President Joe Biden was “terrific” in his debate against Rep. Paul Ryan, according to a White House pool report.
“I’m going to make a special point of saying that I thought Joe Biden was terrific tonight. I could not be prouder of him. I thought he made a very strong case. I really think that his passion for making sure that the economy grows for the middle class came through. So I’m very proud of him.”
Asked if he called him after the debate ended, Mr. Obama replied with a smile, “Yes, I just talked to him.”
