“To know Joe Biden is to know love without pretense, service without self-regard, and to live life fully. As one of his long-time colleagues in the Senate, who happened to be a Republican, once said, ‘If you can’t admire Joe Biden as a person, you got a problem. He's as good a man as God ever created.’” —President Obama awarding the Presidential Medal of Freedom with Distinction to Vice President Biden

 

“For your faith in your fellow Americans, for your love of country, and for your lifetime of service that will endure through the generations… I am proud to award the Presidential Medal of Freedom with Distinction to my brother, Joseph Robinette Biden Jr.”
