Joe Biden: Republicans Don’t Know What it Means to be Middle Class

The wind-up:

Biden told attendees that he is confident about Obama’s reelection because Republicans are being open about their intent to cut programs important to a large swatch of the electorate — the middle class.

“These guys don’t have a sense of the average folks out there,” he said. “They don’t know what it means to be middle class.”

And the pitch:

Biden made the remarks at the Georgetown home of Senator John Kerry, where some 87 guests paid a minimum of $10,000 per couple to dine on char-grilled grass-fed New York strip steaks and white truffle mashed potatoes beneath a tent basked in soft pink lighting.

If the people Biden was addressing had a sense of the middle class they’d know that the 99 percent prefers their char-grilled grass-fed New York strip steaks served with roasted La Bonnotte potatoes and not white truffle mashed. Poseurs! #OccupyNantucket
