Happy Joe Biden Photo

Joey the Shark has bite:

John McCain recently said: “the issue of economics is not something I’ve understood as well as I should.” Then he proved it by the advisors he chose to surround him – advisors who have further cocooned him from the reality facing the rest of us. People like Phil Gramm. The man who wrote John McCain’s economic plan actually said, repeatedly, that we’re not going through an economic recession. Phil Gramm says it’s just a mental recession. That we’re a nation of whiners.

Tell that to my friend who flew jets for the Navy and then went to work for a commercial airline for over 20 years – only to see his pension wiped out while his CEO got a golden parachute. Don’t tell me that he is a whiner.

Don’t tell me that the woman I met in Missouri who worked for the Chrysler plant for 13 years making minivans and lost her job when production moved to Canada is a whiner.

Don’t tell me that an engineer who sees his job go overseas because his company has been given a tax break to leave instead of one to stay is a whiner.

Don’t tell me that these people, people who are our nation’s heart and soul – deserve to be treated as economic scapegoats.

These people worked hard, they did everything right, and they’re willing to work hard again. But instead of their government supporting them, their government walked away from them. Nobody stood up for them.

Barack and I will.

Talk HARD.

    Joe, please addthis to that:

    This was the first time Palin had mentioned Wall Street in her stump speech. Mostly, she tends to reprise large portions of her nomination speech from the convention. Palin, herself, may not be the most authoritative spokesperson on such issues. In the past, when she ran for Alaska governor, she freely admitted to a reporter that she got a “D” in macroeconomics in college.

    If y’all had a decent single-payer healthcare system, instead of employer-paid insurance premiums that add hundreds of dollars to the cost of building cars, you wouldn’t be losing manufacturing jobs to us up here in Soviet Canuckistan, where wages are high and unionisation is a right guaranteed by law.
    I’dlove to see Obama and Biden confrontthat elephant in the room…

    We coddle them like they were really important people, rather than ghosts.
    When’s the first Biden/Palin debate? I’ve got the caramel popcorn ready to go, please don’t lose the keys to the Crack Van.
