VIDEO: Biden tells supporters the middle class have been “buried” last four years

You know the saying that a “gaffe” is when a politician accidentally tells the truth? Here’s Exhibit A:

Vice President Biden said Tuesday that the middle class has been “buried” for the last four years.

Biden made the remark at a campaign rally while arguing that Republicans would raise taxes on the middle class. He said the tax hike would be especially bad given what the middle class has been through over the last four years.

“This is deadly earnest, man. This is deadly earnest,” the vice president said. “How they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that has been buried the last four years — how in Lord’s name can they justify raising their taxes with these tax cuts.”

The Veep made the remarks while at a campaign stop here in Charlotte earlier today. Here’s the video, via Daniel Halper at the Weekly Standard:

As he has been for many years now, Joe Biden is the gift that simply keeps on giving – to the GOP.

Biden debates Paul Ryan next Thursday the 11th. President Obama and Mitt Romney’s first scheduled debate is tomorrow night.
