How Appropriate: Train Station Renamed for Joe Biden is Millions Over Budget


On Thursday it was announced that a school named after Barack Obama was being shuttered due to fiscal mismanagement and under-achievement, and the fitting Team Obama irony clickity-clacks along:

As a thank-you to its most famous customer, Amtrak is renaming the train station in Wilmington, Del. after stimulus “sheriff” Vice President Joseph R. Biden — 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.
