Oh, Vice President Joe Biden, you always know just what to say. The veep was making the point to a group of NYU students that President Barack Obama wouldn’t be soft in his foreign policy. But you know college students, always reading the double meaning in things.

How can you not, though, when Biden says this: "Now is the time to heed the timeless advice from Teddy Roosevelt. Speak softly and carry a big stick. End of quote. I promise you, the president has a big stick. I promise you.” Biden, you can bring the Beavis and Butthead out in anybody.
