Mr. Biden that could be the most profound statement of your public life. Last week The Veep delivered a fiery speech where he indicated that those evil rich guys (read Romney) don't get us. For your viewing pleasure here is a video:
The link is from Business Insider and Michael Brendan Dougherty tries to make the case that Biden can pander, er, I mean connect with southern middle class workers:
And that's where Biden comes in. He is the only populist in this 2012 presidential race. He can speak to a crowd of middle and working class voters in Youngstown and say "They don't get it. They don't get who we are," and that crowd just instantly connects with him in a way that they can't with either of the men at the top of the ticket.
For all his verbal-gaffes, Biden has the feel for a part of America that Romney and Obama don't.
I am on the other side of that fence. While this sort of class envy nonsense works for some I'm guessing most see right through it. And given the performance of these economic titans over the past 3 plus years they should have about as much credibility as a clever garden slug.
I mean if Biden's message is that Romney takes risks on businesses that sometimes fail, um, so what. By implication the Obama team is suggesting that the country is far better off under the governance of two people with no experience except, ahem, public service. Call me old fashioned but I'd rather have a president who has actually signed the front of a paycheck not just the back of one.
