Biden: Middle Class 'Has Been Buried the Last Four Years'
Weekly Standard ^

Posted on 10/02/2012 10:50:07 AM PDT by GOPinCa

Vice President Joe Biden said the middle class "has been buried the last four yeas" at a campaign event in Charlotte, North Carolina: "This is deadly earnest, man. This is deadly earnest," Biden said. "How they can justify--how they can justify--raising taxes when the middle class has been buried the last four years... How in Lord's name..."

Of course, Barack Obama has been president the last four years, and Biden has been vice president.

Joe ... Joe ... Joe, if you had wanted to run against the incumbent, you probably should have started at least a year ago. At this point, I think it’s too late.

Of course the middle class has been crushed the last 4 years by RomneyBushRyan.

That’s why we need Hope and Change!

I’m a tad worried about the 0bama/Romney debate, but Ryan would surely CRUSH Biden. All he has to do is quote him. LOL!

It is awesome, and it would make an awesome ad.

But, I've given up holding my breath waiting for Romney ads here in battleground Ohio.

There'll be 5 reports from the lamestream and 6 Obama ads, all synched and explaining what Biden really meant and that it's all Bush's fault long before the Romney team gets off their duffs and does anything about it.

This is what happens when press goes totally corrupt and acts as an extension of the Obama camp. They feel they can do ans say anything.

I think he was just waiting on the obama administration and the socialists in this country to do the job for him.

The Democrats believe they have been doing a great job with the middle class.

You just need to understand how they define the middle class.

It would be a great ad, asking why Obama wants to raise taxes when he has buried the middle class.

Romney has to make this into an ad or his campaign is incompetent. Biden basically gave them a free add. All they have to do is pay for air time.
