Biden gaffe on eve of US presidential debate

AFP - Vice President Joe Biden inadvertently tossed raw meat to Republican rivals Tuesday barely 24 hours ahead of the first presidential debate, saying the middle class has been "buried" during the last four years.

With President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney laying low ahead of Wednesday's Denver showdown, their running mates battled for the spotlight, and Republicans suggested Biden's gaffe marked a stunning admission five weeks away from the November 6 election.

"How they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried in the last four years," Biden, addressing supporters in North Carolina, said in reference to the period he and Obama have been leading the nation.

The White House quickly sought to douse the flames, saying Biden was talking about how president George W. Bush's policies continued to hurt the middle class deep into Obama's term.
And Biden himself offered up his own correction in a tweet from his official Twitter feed: "'The middle class was buried by the policies that Romney and Ryan have supported."

But the Republicans, who argue that the middle class has been hard hit by four years of an Obama economy, let fly in the blink of an eye.

"Agree with @JoeBiden, the middle class has been buried the last 4 years, which is why we need a change in November," said a tweet from Mitt Romney's official Twitter account.

Romney's running mate Paul Ryan issued a scathing response.

"Unemployment has been above eight percent for 43 months. Our economy is limping along right now. Vice President Biden, just today, said that the middle class, over the last four years, has been 'buried.' We agree," he told a rally in Iowa.

"That means we need to stop digging by electing Mitt Romney the next president of the United States."

Republicans suggested it would be an easy punchline for Romney during Wednesday's prime-time debate.

"Thank you Vice President Biden," former New Hampshire governor John Sununu, an aggressive Romney surrogate, quipped to reporters.

Biden should call in sick that day.

As we saw in the speech video dominating today's news, Obama isn't any less gaffe prone when you take away the TelePrompter and he gets off script

Biden is a bumbling idiot, but I can't help but think that I would like him on a personal level if I knew him. He just makes me laugh.

I believe that Obama was afraid of a scheming VP, angling to ascend to the Presidency. So, to allay that fear, he picked Joe.

At the time, liberals fawned at Biden's experience and the fact that he is such a steady hand in foreign policy. LMAO

I wouldn't trust him to call a bingo game

It will be interesting to see if the knee-jerk Dem response to everything will hold up after the debate. I really wish Romney would have been even clearer on the fact that you can lower taxes and increase revenues (a point that Obama clearly does not comprehend at all), but in general all these attacks on Romney seem petty when he doesn't show up on the stage as the boogity man they've been saying he was for the past four years...
