At an appearance in Wisconsin today, Vice President Joe Biden is telling voters that America is not in decline and that the Republican presidential ticket is in denial about the improving economy.

“Biden spoke to about 1,000 people at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh on Friday. Later in the day, he drew about 1,500 people at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside in Kenosha.

The vice president peppered his speeches with familiar criticisms of Republicans Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. He said Romney "meant what he said" when Romney contended that 47 percent of Americans see themselves as victims entitled to government assistance.

Biden said, quote, ‘I don't recognize the country he's talking about.’”

How is it possible that Biden does not understand the accusations made by Governor Romney and Paul Ryan? With unemployment still at 7.8%, not many Americans would see this as a prosperous America.

With this new gaffe, the Vice President has added to his already long list of mistakes during this election season. Earlier he stated that the middle class has been buried over the last four years. Well he is right! Under the Obama administration the middle class has been suffering, and this is what many people would call a decline. How is it that he can now claim the exact opposite?

Maybe the Obama campaign is happy elections are right around the corner; they won’t have to worry about what comes out of Biden’s mouth much longer. With only 10 days until Americans go to the polls, it will be interesting to see how much more trouble Biden can get into.
