Biden: "I am about to be let loose."
Advertisements [?]
He's at the Cincinnati AFL-CIO picnic, rile'n 'em up. :D

Fiery Biden riles up union members in Ohio

Vice President Joe Biden delivered a fiery speech to a big labor event in Cincinnati Ohio on Monday where he urged his audience to stop a Republican anti-union "onslaught."

(snip)

Biden said that in the upcoming presidential campaign he will be fighting for nothing less than the survival of the American working class.

"I am about to be let loose," he said.
