Biden: Romney is "a little out of touch"
CBS News ^ | April 1, 2012

Posted on 04/01/2012 10:47:53 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

(CBS News) Vice President Joe Biden came out swinging against Mitt Romney on Sunday's "Face the Nation," saying the Republican presidential front-runner "seems not to understand" the struggle of the middle class.

"Governor Romney's a little out of touch," Biden told anchor Bob Schieffer.

"I can't remember a presidential candidate in the recent past who seems not to understand... what ordinary middle class people are thinking about and are concerned about," Biden added.

The vice president criticized the former Massachusetts governor for his statements opposing government intervention in the auto industry and his hands-off, free-market approach to foreclosures

"I don't know if he understands that there are 12 million people out there paying their mortgage payments," Biden said. "And all we want to do is give 'em a chance to refinance at a lower rate."

"None of what he's offering does anything. It's just returning to the old policies," Biden said.

Sometimes real life is much funnier then anything a comedy writer could invent. I wish we could all be as aware, focused and on top of things as Joe Biden.

"Governor Romney's a little out of touch,"

Tough to argue that one.

Biden the broken clock politician.

So it’s come to this? - the country that produced Washington, Madison, Jefferson, Lincoln, Reagan is now offering up Biden, Romney and Soetero as the best that we produce as leaders?

That’s just sad, Larry, that’s what it is - that’s just sad.

Hard to believe Joe Biden is the VP of the United States.....

Hard not to understand why the world think Americans are stupid....

Yeah and that’s true.

But the fact is, a lot of them are also thinking without daring say it:

If I said what those crazy, wonderful FReepers said, I’d go to jail and never be heard from again. America is amazing.

But they won’t say any of that.

That’s the first time I’ve heard Joey say something that makes sense. The GOP is also very out of touch if they think Romney should be the GOP’s nominee. If Romney is the nominee, Joey is guaranteed VP for another 4.

A little out of touch?

Come on Biden, if you’re going to speak the truth once in your lifetime, at least come out and speak all of the truth.

Romney is wholly out of touch.

Joe Biden told people attending an AARP town hall meeting that unless the Democrat-supported health care plan becomes law the nation will go bankrupt and that the only way to avoid that fate is for the government to spend more money.

“And folks look, AARP knows and the people with me here today know, the president knows, and I know, that the status quo is simply not acceptable,” Biden said at the event on Thursday in Alexandria, Va. “It’s totally unacceptable. And it’s completely unsustainable. Even if we wanted to keep it the way we have it now. It can’t do it financially.”

“We’re going to go bankrupt as a nation,” Biden said.

“Now, people when I say that look at me and say, ‘What are you talking about, Joe? You’re telling me we have to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt?’” Biden said. “The answer is yes, that’s what I’m telling you.”
