News from The Obamaphate: Mixed messages from the Deputy Dolt in Chief

Vice President Joe Biden identified with the struggles of ordinary American in an Iowa campaign speech today.
"The unemployed are really in trouble," Biden said in a campaign stop in Dubuque."My grandpop used to say — from Scranton — he said, Joey, the guy in Dunmore, the next town over, when the guy in Dunmore is out of work it's an economic slowdown. When your brother in law is out of work it's a recession. When you're out of work it's a depression. It's a depression for millions and millions of Americans."
Biden then launched into a critique of Mitt Romney's record and outsourcing, saying he believes that the American worker is part of the problem. Story here with video.

Ehrrrrr...  WTF????  Here I was thinking that the Obamaphate's central campaign theme is that we are in fact in a recovery - a slow one fer shure - but a recovery nevertheless. Biden is - once again - off the message reservation. It's almost as if Biden is really campaigning for Mittens.

News From The Obamaphate: Americans' wealth falls 40% in last three years.

The Washington Post is reporting that the Fed has announced a 40% decline in Americans' wealth...

"The net worth of the American family has fallen to its lowest level in two decades, according to government data released Monday, driven by a more than 40 percent drop in their stakes in their homes.

The Federal Reserve’s detailed survey of consumer finances showed families’ median wealth plunged from $126,400 in 2007 to $77,300 in 2010 — a 39 percent decline. That put them on par with median wealth in 1992."

Well, BRAVO Barack, you've better than kept your promise to spread the wealth misery around and all of that inside of four years. OUTSTANDING!

As compensation for your herculean efforts, I'm just praying the country's voters give you similar numbers on November 6th.
