Vice President Joe Biden told a gathering of auto workers there’s one “overwhelming reason” not to run for president — a chance to drive General Motors’ new Corvette Stingray.
“That new Stingray! Yo, oh, oh, oh,” Biden exclaimed. “Zero to 60 in 3.9 seconds! Not that I like speed.”
He said he’d like to match it up against a friend’s Porsche, “if I was just not in this job.”
And he noted, “everyone wants to know whether or not I’m going to run for president. There’s a lot of reasons to run for president but one overwhelming reason not to run for president.”
Biden noted he attended the Detroit Auto Show last month and called himself a “junkie” for cars.
“Have you seen the new Chrysler 200?” he asked the crowd. “Enough horsepower to bring back 900 jobs at Sterling Heights!”
