Joe Biden Doesn’t Blame People For Voting For A Felon Instead Of Obama

Ladies and gentlemen, Joe Biden has just inserted himself into another news cycle:

Look, I come from a household where whenever there’s a recession, somebody around my grand-pop or my dad’s table lost a job.

“A brother, a sister a friend, a neighbor. When you’re out of work, man, it’s a depression. And a lot of people are still hurting because of this god-awful recession we inherited that cost 8.4 million jobs before we could really get going. And so I don’t blame people, they’re frustrated, they’re angry.”

This is part of an interview Biden gave to a reporter from West Virginia television station WTOV.

    I believe this is the first time Joe and I have agreed on something. Go figure.

  2. al-Ameda says:

    I would vote for felon-to-be John Edwards before I’d vote for Mitt Romney.

  3. Eric Florack says:

    The obvious conclusion to draw here is those people that voted for the felon, consider him the reins of power to be less of a danger than they do Obama having that same power.
