Don't mess with Joe!

Vice President Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi applaud President Barack Obama

6:23 p.m.: Obama explains that he is putting Vice President Joe Biden in charge of a "tough, unprecedented oversight effort" of the fiscal stimulus plan. "Because nobody messes with Joe."

Biden breaks into a huge grin, Nancy Pelosi stands to applaud the Veep. Weird moment of humor because it almost sounds patronizing. Biden does not seem to mind and the crowd eats it up.
