Interesting piece of vid - usual class warfare nonsense that if "The Rich" would cough up their "fair share" all this economic chaos would get solved like magic. The spookiest part of the video is that people are applauding his idiocy.

That’s what Romney did best last night; Drive home the fact that punishing business owners kills job creation. I wish he would’ve included Obamacare’s 21 new taxes in that segment but there’s only so much time. Even I was impressed how ‘on his game’ Romney was. Our prayers were answered.. Thank you, God!

Of course people are applauding. That's why this kind of thing works. Biden is acknowledging there is a problem, and that it is a serious one (such a thing is so obviously true he cannot realistically say otherwise) but he reassures his followers that it is "someone else's fault". That gets people out of feeling guilty, which people like a lot. It further follows that "someone else" has the responsibility of fixing the problem. That gets people out of having to do anything. All in all, a very attractive message. It taps directly into envy, greed and sloth, all of which the average Human Being has in considerable abundance.
The truth is that the current economic problem is of such a scale that even if this mythical bunch of wealth-hoarding "others" existed taking all of their money wouldn't cover the yearly deficit, never mind touch the existing debt. We are all of us going to take a lot of pain before this all works out (if it ever does).
