Biden Blows Smoke Up Union Butts, in Voters Eyes
Listen to Joe Biden describe the importance of collective bargaining for public employees. He doesn't mention that the Dems banned collective bargaining for federal employees during the Carter administration.
In the long version, notice how Joe attacks the conservative connection to big business, but doesn't mention that the top two money donors in the 2008 presidential cycle were labor unions. In other words, Democrats are the party of special interests.
Biden must have gone off his meds. Here's what he had to say Friday:
The vice president, known for speaking his mind and at times putting his foot in his mouth, said that Republicans who want to cut spending while at the same time cutting taxes for the wealthy are similar to rape apologists.
In setting up his comparison, the vice president explained to the audience that before the Violence Against Women Act that he championed was passed into law, “there was this attitude in our society of blaming the victim," according to a press pool account of the event. “When a woman got raped, blame her because she was wearing a skirt too short, she looked the wrong way or she wasn't home in time to make the dinner,” Biden said.
