The gaffe-master that noted race-baiter Chris Matthews recently begged the Obama campaign to "unleash", proves once again why he's the biggest ass-clown to ever hold down the VP spot:
Vice President Joe Biden is once again proving to be a great asset to the Republicans.
First there was his ‘”put y’all back in chains” remark, which led to Republicans joking that he should attend the Republican National Convention and campaign on their behalf.
Now, the Romney-Ryan ticket is thanking the Vice President for making their point about the middle class.
At an event in Charlotte, N.C. yesterday, Biden questioned how Republican presidential nominee could justify raising taxes on the middle class that is suffering:RELATED: Study: Obama’s big budget deficits could mean a $4,000 a year middle-class tax hike
“This is deadly earnest, man. This is deadly earnest. How can they justify raising taxes on the middle class that’s been buried the last four years? How in the Lord’s name can they justify raising their taxes with these tax cuts?”It did not escape the Republicans that Biden had limited that statement to the last four years, an error that he corrected at a later campaign stop by saying that the last four years were a consequence of President Bush’s policies ” that Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney supported.”
While Biden was working on dialing back his misstep, Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan used Biden’s statement to his advantage. “Vice President Biden, just today, said that the middle class, over the last four years, has been buried. We agree. That means we need to stop digging by electing Mitt Romney the next President of the United States,” he told the crowd in Burlington, Iowa.
Day before, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney tweeted: “Another term for @BarackObama will only bring more of the same policies that have devastated the middle class.” Biden’s comment played right into this rhetoric and the campaign didn’t hesitate to tweet that they agree with the current Vice President.
