Biden: Hey, I don’t blame people for voting for a convicted felon instead of my boss

I’m not sure how thrilled Obama will be when he finds out his Veep is going around saying he doesn’t blame so many people for voting for a convicted felon over the President, but Plugs is at least toeing the company line by blaming Bush for it:

Here’s a clip from Vice President Joe Biden’s interview with WTOV-TV in West Virginia yesterday, the latest stop he’s made this week, where he was asked about what he made of out-of-state incarcerated felon Keith Judd getting roughly 40 percent of the vote against President Obama in the recent Democratic primary:

“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.”

I hear ya, Joe. If I had a dime for every time I was experiencing a financial hardship and said to myself “If only there was an incarcerated felon I could vote for to fix all this,” I’d be… still in financial hardship.

Maybe so many people in the West Virginia primary voted for someone in jail because they figured he’d be able to find a running-mate in the yard who is more hinged than this guy:

Did you detect a hint of Fredo in that Biden rant?
