• “Middle Class Joe” Doesn’t Seem to Dig How His Boss is Treating the Middle Class

    Well now, here’s a bit of a head-scratcher. Appearing at an event intended to hail the “importance of investing in our nation’s infrastructure” (according to The White House), Vice President Joe Biden uttered a ten-second phrase that I can only imagine resulted in yet another facepalm for Obama and his fellow Democrats this election year.

    The middle class is getting killed,” proclaimed Joe. “In the last ten years, average salaries in the middle class in America, according to Standard & Poor’s, has gone up 14 cents.”

    That’s all fine and dandy, but who has been in charge during most of that time? And whose fault is it that the middle class is getting the shaft?

    It was just over one month ago that Biden insisted, “They always refer to me in the press as ‘Middle Class Joe’.” But as I pointed out at the time, no one ever has. It’s all in his head.

    Both Joey and Barack have refused to take ownership of the economy throughout the entire time they’ve been in office. They’ve spent so many hours blaming George W. Bush for all of America’s ills that they’ve found themselves in a sort of time warp. It’s gotten so bad that Biden is now, without even realizing it, lashing out about how Obama’s own policies have affected working people.

    Let’s also remember that Obama had a Democrat-controlled House of Representatives throughout his first two years in office — you know, that memorable moment in history when Obamacare was rammed through Congress. So as much as these guys may want to blame Republicans for where the country is at economically right now, it’s not like they didn’t have a chance to show us what they could do.

    Once again, Joseph Biden has committed a gaffe in the form of telling the truth: the middle class IS getting killed. Now let’s see what the middle class does about that come November.
