As a thank-you to its most famous customer, Amtrak is renaming the train station in Wilmington, Del. after stimulus â€œsheriffâ€ Vice President Joseph R. Biden â€” after the project received $20 million in stimulus money, and came in $5.7 million over the initial announced budget.
Obama called him “Sheriff Joe” because he was charged with ensuring that every dollar of stimulus money was spent wisely and that projects came in on time and on budget. So naturally when that went south almost immediately, the only other option was to start doing Joe the honor of naming some of his failures after him.
