I swear, they still think it's 2008:
“This is deadly earnest, man. This is deadly earnest,” the vice president said. “How they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that has been buried the last four years — how in Lord's name can they justify raising their taxes with these tax cuts.”
A quick note to the Vice President:
To: Biden, Joseph
Cc: Obama, Barack
You've been in charge for the last four years, just FYI.
“You know, I talk about ‘the longest walk.’ You have heard me say that," said Biden. "The longest walk a parent can make is up a short flight of stairs, to their child’s bedroom, to say, ‘Honey, I am sorry you cannot go back to sing in the choir next year. You cannot play on that Little League team. Daddy, Mommy, we lost our jobs. The bank says we cannot live here any more.’ You know, you know people who have made that walk.”
Barack Obama is the incumbent. He made promises -- lots of them. He has a record: He's presided over the worst economic recovery since the Great Depression. He borrowed $825 billion to spend on a "stimulus' that he said would have unemployment at 5.6 percent by now. It's been stuck above eight percent for 43 straight months. He promised not to increase taxes on the middle class. He did. He's added $5.5 trillion to the national debt in less than four years, after calling President Bush "unpatriotic" for adding $4 trillion over eight. His policies have resulted in middle class families paying more for healthcare while their incomes have fallen by an average of $4,300 per family. So Biden's right: The middle class has been buried over these last four years. He and Barack Obama are holding the shovels.
UPDATE - That was fast. Romney pounces:
