Vice President Joe Biden is sticking up for one of his boss' rivals: Mitt Romney.

In the January issue of Esquire magazine, Biden reflects in the  “What I’ve Learned” that faith is personal, Politico reports.

“When my son was a senior, I was asked to do a speech at Georgetown University,” Biden said in an interview. “Father O’Donovan asked me to speak on how faith informs my public service. I’d never talked about my faith publicly. I mean, I acknowledge that I’m a practicing Catholic, but I don’t think it’s anybody’s business, nor do I think it should matter to anyone. That’s why I’m so angry about the way they’re treating Romney. Who I’m not crazy about, but…”

Biden doesn't forget to mention President Barack Obama, however. He praises him for his "courage."

 “What I’m amazed about is the guy’s courage. The decisions the president makes day in and day out are decisions that nobody sees. Trust me, if you had to make only one of those decisions, you’d be telling your grandchildren about it. … I would argue that this president has had more land on his plate from the day he got in of?ce than any other president — including Franklin Roosevelt.”
