Is Joe Biden the foot-in-mouth candidate – or is he the Obama campaign’s designated teller of inconvenient truths?
First, the Democratic veep hopeful declared that America’s enemies will generate “an international crisis, to test the mettle of” a President Obama.
Scary – but likely true.
And yesterday Biden let slip that he and Obama apparently have a sliding scale to determine who’s “super-rich.”
Obama, after all, has been promising a tax cut for the “middle class” – those making $200,000 a year or less.
Biden yesterday lowered that bar.
“What we’re saying,” he told a Pennsylvania TV interviewer, “is that [our] tax break doesn’t need to go to people making . . . $1.4 million. It should go to [people] making under $150,000 a year.”
Oops. That’s a 25 percent downward redefinition of “middle class.”
……”We’ll have to raise taxes, ultimately,” Frank declared over the weekend.
So much for a middle class tax break. Of course if anyone really believes the Democrats’ cock and bull story of being for the working class, I’ve got a bridge in Brooklyn for sale….cheap.
