And now, a moment with Joe Biden.
BIDEN: …and it’s really just that simple. If you want to maintain free access to safe, clean, contraceptives, you need to get out on Election Day, and bring all your friends too, and make sure that Barack and I can keep working to fix this mess that George Bush left us with. Ya know, my dad used to tell me what it was like when he was a kid. He’d say, “Joey,” ’cause that’s what he called me… “Joey, it used to be a whole lot tougher back in my day.” He’d say, “You’d meet up with a local girl, a pretty little gal that wanted to… we used to call them ‘party girls’ back then. But, anyway, you’d find a place like the alley behind the trash bins, ’cause you couldn’t afford a hotel, times were tough. And you’d have to take your chances. If that girl got pregnant, then by gosh you’d have to pack up all your stuff and leave town in the dead of night, and it wasn’t pretty. And so, don’t ever forget how lucky you’ve got it today, Joey. Don’t ever let this country go back to those awful days when an honest, hardworking, respectable guy was forced to give up his wife and kids and leave his family behind in order to escape having to take responsibility for his teenage mistress’s unwanted pregnancy, just because he didn’t have access to free, reliable contraceptives.” And, my dad’s words are as true today as they were back then, and that’s what makes America great…
This has been a moment with Joe Biden.
