Health care reform: It's a big f---ing deal!

The health care reform bill has caused a few slips of the tongue. March 21, it was a "baby killer" comment from Rep. Randy Neugebauer, R-Texas. Today, Vice President Joe Biden topped that with the F-bomb.

After Biden introduced President Barack Obama at the signing ceremony of the bill today, the two gave each other a man-embrace with slaps on the back to wild applause. Then Biden leaned in to give Obama a little pep talk, barely audible over the sound of applause but picked up by the microphone at the podium a foot away: "This is a big f---ing deal!"

Biden said it with a big grin and awaited a similar response, but Obama's smile quickly hardened into a tight-lipped expression as he brushed the comment away with a stiff nod and no eye-contact.

To me, Obama's actions speak louder than Biden's words: The president just never knows what his loose-lipped second-in-command will do during public speaking events.

It's a big f---ing deal!
