Giving credit where credit is due, following in the precedent set by President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney, current VP Joe Biden took time out on Friday, December 25, Christmas Day to spend some time with our wounded Troops at Walter Reed Hospital.
He did not travel to Walter Reed with a press entourage or to make headlines, unlike his boss who flew off to Hawaii for some personal relaxation, golf and watching the waves.
I'm not a big fan of Biden's, but such a visit, not a photo op and made out of appreciation for our Troops sacrifice, earn a bit of admiration from me.
Good going, Joe. At least one person in the White House has a little class.
Few reports of the visit were made known, other than by the Hill, Politico and Fox News
