Joe Biden: Rich Guys Like Mitt Romney Just Don‘t Understand ’Middle Class Folks Like Me’
The Blaze ^ | 7/11/12 | Jason Howerton

Posted on 07/11/2012 11:35:46 AM PDT by Nachum

As Keith Koffler of the White House Dossier points out, Vice President Joe Biden actually thinks he’s part of the middle class. This, despite the fact he made nearly $400,000 in 2011, placing him comfortably in the “rich” category President Obama has created in his bid to raise taxes on the country’s top income earners making over $250,000-per-year.

However, addressing the National Council of La Raza in Las Vegas on Tuesday, Biden — without mentioning he and his wife had an adjusted income of $379,000, according to his 2011 tax return — suggested he is just your average middle class Joe (no pun intended).

“For middle class folks like me, and most of you, owning a home is maybe the most consequential element of our existence to be able to provide for our families,” he said.

He went on to say rich people or “these guys,” including GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, don‘t understand what it’s like for regular people in the middle class. Biden even quoted Romney as saying, “Let the market hit bottom,” in response to the housing crisis of 2008.

Very few people can understand idiots like Biden. It isn’t about class. It’s about no class, as in zip, nada, just mindless stupidity.

Bidendork, your political corruption makes you very upper class (in terms of worth, not intellect).

Your intellect makes you lower than the lowest class - because I know some folks who are very poor who could outthink you twelve days after they were dead.

Shove it up your smelly Obama, Biden. Were it not for politics, you’d not even qualify to pick up dog poop.

Dopey Joe Biden pretending that he’s part of the middle class borders on delusion if he really believed it but more likely indicates a politicians cynicism from a guy who has lived high off the public teat for decades while affecting a ‘regular guy’ persona that only those willing to believe it would ever buy. Biden is a total phoney - just like his boss.

Romney also doesn’t understand the plight of black women like Elizabeth Warren.

Or mentally handicapped people like Wasserman Schultz.

Uncle Joe’s class status depends who his audience is.

He should try Hillary’s “I ain’t in no way tiiiired” speech and dialect.

To paraphrase conservative actress Morgan Brittany, they(the Democrats) really think we are completely stupid. Only someone who’s been living under a rock could possibly think Biden is “middle class”.

In addition to his $400,000 salary, doesn't Biden get his housing for free?

Considering that the only "work" he has to do as part of his job is to break tie votes in the Senate (presiding over sessions is usually outsourced to someone else), it's nice work if you can get it.

Was he speaking from the veranda of his 5 acre homestead on the private lake. The home where he can look out his window and see the house that he charges the SS rent to protect him.

And how he got that “middle class home is another story, filled with shady dealings with MBNA (now BOA) executives. In exchange for favorable legislation, no doubt.

He’s not middle class, he’s no class.

Joe Biden is a stingy bastard (I gave more to charity in one year than he did in 10 or more) who believes that generosity is his stealing my money at the point of a gun and giving it to Obama’s cronies.

Didn’t this idiot recently say in rather terse terms that he never was ‘’middle class’’? That his father never worked in a steel mill?

Didn’t Biden the Slow just last week make the statement to another group that he ISN’T middle class?

“Romney also doesn’t understand the plight of black women like Elizabeth Warren”................

Has E. Warren abandoned her claim to Cherokee ancestors in favor of black slaves in her family tree? Perhaps she thinks it is a better way to get sympathy.

Doctors need to seriously think of using the term “Bidened” when declaring a patient brain dead. “Brain dead” is a bit confusing especially when a patient is still alive. “Bidened” on the other hand leaves no doubt.

Doctors: “I’m sorry Mrs. Doe, but your son John is Bidened from the accident.”

Mrs. Doe: “Oh my lord, his brain is completely gone. OK, pull the plug”

You see, there is no question what it means.

My whole adult life I’ve wanted to kick this asshole’s teeth out. My disgust about this man actually lessened quite a bit since America, in her infinite wisdom, elected him Vice President. He’s totally powerless to effect me in any way now.

Imbecilic is as Biteme does.

Stupid thy name is Biden.

Look Ma! No brains!

If you put Biden’s brain in a bird, the bird would fly backwards and head north for the winter.
