Biden Calls Himself 'Middle Class Joe,' Owns Mansion
Weekly Standard ^ | 5/17/12 | Daniel Halper

Joe Biden, speaking in Ohio today, said that he is "tired of being called a 'Middle Class Joe.'"

While it's not clear who actually calls the vice president that, it is clear that his house and finances tell a different story. Here's a picture of his home (not his official vice presidential residence at the Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C.):

I think he is accually calling average middle class Americans stupid, clearly he is if that’s what he is insinuating; unfortunately for him and fortunately for us, this walking muppet keeps spouting idiotic comments daily. Maybe Obama will have him caged till Nov..

Uhm, I use to run right in front of that place every morning.

I would not call that a mansion.

Biden is so far out of whack he is certifiably Insane.

He doesn’t remember the 1940”s adn 1950’s Democrat Party, they took care of the working Man.
Today they only take care of the shiftless and lazy..

Don’t forget that this creepy tightwad also forces the Secret Service to pay him rent when they camp there on his trips home.

Man of the people.

The author of the article needs to take a ride on River Road, from the Capital Beltway towards Potomac MD, as the word mansion seems to be imperfectly understood.

I live in a four bedroom house of about 1500 sq ft - there are 7 people living in it (12 at the present time with my Army son and his family home on leave). The house Biden lives in IS a mansion in my estimation.

You would not call a $2.8M home a mansion?

Wow, I guess we are poor folk here in Minnesota.

Biden misunderstood. No one calls him "Middle Class Joe." People call him "No Class Joe."

You are correct. A mansion it is not, but it is a pretty nice place. I mean the water and all. Not exactly Levitown. I’d say a little better then middle-class. You ran by it, so am I wrong?

JOE is insurance that the democrat party doesn’t wack Barry Half-White to Martin Luther Kingize him..

Pretty smart choice for VeeP.. but if he keeps it up.. that option might be “waved”...

If Barry is MLK-ized the funeral may take a year on every TV and cable station every newspaper and Magazine plus a few HollyWierd movies.. (and NPR).. all talk shows and of course BET..

It would drive all conservatives even more nuts..
NUTS: meaning they elected the inventor of Romney-care to run against the inventor of Dohbama-Care..
You can’t make this ____ up... its insane..

Yep. I use to live on Presidential Place in Greenville. The same place the now famous local witch lived(Christine).

About 300 yards past his house my 1 mile mark.

It is a nice place but it’s also rather plain for it’s style.

If it were me I’d have gone to 12,000 sq ft and built in a paradigm style.

But, what do I know. I live in a 4,000 sq ft home.

I live in KawLeeFawNeeYuh.

A house that size would typically carry that price and mines $1 million

Don’t know. They have Italian junipers that block a good portion of the view.

Obama’s going to dump him long before November.

Make room for Hillary.

Maybe not quite a mansion, but close.
Besides, anything bigger and Slo Joe would constantly be getting lost.

$2.8 million is not a “middle-class” home.

No no no... They used to call him “Slow Joe” in Congress.

Because he was so stupid.

I am NOT making this up.

Maybe Obama chose Joe Biteme as Veep for the same reason a fat person stands next to an extremely fat person.

Does Biden ‘do’ the classic liberal multimillionaire bit - put on a baseball cap and pretend he's one of the ‘workers’? God, will these people ever grown up?

You’ve got the address if you use to run by there - do a Zillow on it and tell us the truth. House on the water? Come on, tell us what it’s worth.
