VP Joe Biden: Other countries are going to own our kids unless we build high speed rail

Joe Biden: A Life of Trial and Redemption

Is he insane or just obsessed with choo-choos?
(Political Punch) — In support of President Obama’s bid to “win the future,” America’s most famous Amtrak rider, Vice President Joe Biden, issued a stern warning about U.S. competitiveness in the high-speed rail game: “If we don’t get a grip, folks, they’ll not only be teaching us, they’re gonna own our kids.”

The “they” Biden is talking about are all the other countries in the world who are developing or expanding high-speed rail systems, including China, Japan, Spain and France.
