Joe Biden is a real Renaissance Man. And if he has to turn into a Cherokee woman to have a shot against Hillary, he will do it.

Vice President Joe Biden appeared at a closed-door fundraiser in South Carolina on Friday, where he took a shot at former President Bill Clinton’s tenure, according to a CNN report.

Mr. Biden gave what one attendee called “an Elizabeth Warren-type speech,” focusing mostly on the economic woes of the middle class. But one of his most notable comments came when he set his sights on the latter half of Mr. Clinton’s presidency.

Mr. Biden said the fraying of middle-class economic security did not begin during President George W. Bush’s terms, but earlier, in the “later years of the Clinton administration,” CNN reported, citing three sources.

So who was the target audience for Biden’s speech on the woes of the middle class?

“He said we have some of the most productive workers in the world, but corporations are more concerned about their stockholders than they are about their employees,” one attendee said. “He talked about how the fruits of labor go to stockholders, rather than to the people who are producing it. That the people making the money in this country are the corporations.”

He spoke for more than 30 minutes at the fundraiser, stepping away from the podium and delivering remarks while standing among the “mostly VIP crowd” of prominent local attorneys, Democratic activists and a range of current and former elected officials.

So… a politician who has never worked for a living delivered a speech about the woes of the middle class… to a room full of politicians who have never worked for a living.

It’s not just a joke. It’s also the Democratic Party.

Can we talk about how much of the fruits of the labor go to parasites like these?

Biden touted the Obama administration’s record on the economy, multiple Democrats in the room told CNN, but he also painted a picture of a middle class still struggling while the nation’s top earners continue to line their pockets.

The Vice President by the way makes $230,000. His job consists of doing nothing except lining his pockets.

    As a Delawarean, I am embarrassed. Yet we kept electing him time after time. We created this mess he has become. He has always been on the public dole.

    Joe Biden “BLASTS?”

    Heck of a word for someone who “Shoots through the door!”

    “He said we have some of the most productive workers in the world, but
    corporations are more concerned about their stockholders than they are
    about their employees,” one attendee said. “He talked about how the
    fruits of labor go to stockholders, rather than to the people who are
    producing it.”

    This is truly appalling – it’s Joe Biden discovering Karl Marx at second hand, by osmosis from the noxious fumes emitted by others in the Democratic Party. Corporations are concerned about their stockholders – the owners for God’s sake, the people for whose benefit the corporation was organized – horrors! This is as close to an explicit negation of property rights as I have heard even from a Democrat for a while. One could only conclude from Biden’s comments that either the owners should have their property stripped from them outright, or at least their incomes should be severely taxes and redistributed to the workers, who apparently were not given a salary and forced to work as slaves under duress.

    As bad as this is, it still needs to be opposed or the Democrats will win once again by default. This is why we need an ideological Conservative who can wage an ideological campaign if we’re going to defeat them.

      this is too embarrassing to watch.

        Well, I can only say that it had me in stitches! And the part with Bill O’Reilly was an absolute scream!

    this is why Obama, no matter what crimes he commits, will never be impeached: this is the one who will replace him as president.
