Vice President Joe Biden got a laugh from his audience at a Wisconsin fundraising event Thursday when he tried to rile the crowd about the economic collapse of 2008.
We want to reward people who manufacture things in the United States, in Wisconsin, not to take them overseas to China and to other countries! he said to a silent room at the event for Democratic gubernatorial nominee Tom Barrett, according to a White House pool report.
He continued, saying, Youre the dullest audience Ive ever spoken to," at which point he got applause and laughs. "Do you realize how many jobs Wisconsin lost? Its staggering!"
Biden and President Obama have made frequent campaign stops in recent weeks in an attempt to jolt Democrats who are lagging Republicans in voter enthusiasm measures, in part due to the slowing pace of the economic recovery under the administration's watch.
Biden's appearance Thursday was in the state capital of Madison, which hosted a crowd of 26,000 to see President Obama speak at rally targeted at young voters the week prior.
The vice president has argued at previous events that Democrats have begun to reverse the momentum that had them sliding to large losses on Election Day. He has also taken several pointed shots at the GOP, jokingly saying this week that he would "strangle" Republicans who talk about the deficit.
On Thursday, he took a jab at the House GOP's "Pledge to America," governing agenda.
The pledge half baked
folks, weve been in that oven before," he said. "This pledge is a threat to America."
Try slashing their taxes and regulations, you commie dork.
Wow, way to win over your audience, Joe. Insult them. Keep talking. Honestly.
Exactly. Then there’s this comment by ole Brain Damaged Joe...
The pledge half baked folks, weve been in that oven before,” he said. “This pledge is a threat to America.”
Yes, cutting spending, reforming the broken Congressional budget process and keeping tax cuts in place and ending the massive assault on our healthcare system by Obama and the Dems is a HUGE threat to the country.
This administration has not a clue about creating jobs. STOP OUTSOURCING
Idiot is rewarding product makers like myself with the
European Style VAT. Getting ready to quit making the product because at a certain point enough is enough and I
refuse to become a European Style Tax Collector for the Socialists. It will put about 7 seven subs out of that work,
but hey, we are the Food Stamp slaves of the Dems.
