Biden Visits Wilkes-Barre

September 25, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

Joe Biden visited 40 minutes north of where I live, and he didn’t disappoint. The good-ol’ Biden Gaffe-o-matic was up and running:

But his intended attack ended up confusing some of the crowd.“Ladies and gentlemen, and I say to the national press here, the single biggest tax cut proposed in history for the middle class is being proposed by John McCain,” he said, rather than calling the plan a tax increase.

Of course, that was preceded earlier this week by him saying that clean coal was not the way to go in the United States, despite the fact that Obama’s stand is that he is FOR clean coal.

But no matter; after all, Biden is from Scranton, an area that once thrived on the anthracite coal industry, and in which many in the area are banking on a resurgence of coal. That’s OK Joe; Barack doesn’t need votes up here in Hillary Country (and thus increasingly McCain Country) in a SWING state….

    I’m getting the feeling that both of the candidates are having “Buyer’s Remorse” about their respective VP picks!

    This is an interesting election; lots of twists and turns. You have Biden out there contradicting Obama and making stupid remarks, McCain suspending campaigning to go to Washington, Washington unable to figure out how to handle the financial crisis that politicians allowed to happen, Rangel facing an ethics probe and Kanjorski (our local US Rep who is in a tight race to keep his seat) supporting Rangel, and a presidential election in a few weeks. Trying to keep up with everything makes my head spin…
