Biden tells $10K-a-couple fundraiser audience that GOP doesn’t know the middle class

posted at 10:25 am on March 13, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Via JWF and Gabe Malor, this is why Republicans pray that Barack Obama keeps Joe Biden on the ticket.  The Veep had a few things to say last night about the Republican Party and the middle class:

Biden told attendees that he is confident about Obama’s reelection because Republicans are being open about their intent to cut programs important to a large swatch of the electorate — the middle class.

“These guys don’t have a sense of the average folks out there,” he said. “They don’t know what it means to be middle class.”

And where exactly was Joe Biden speaking?  At a local Perkins Restaurant?  Perhaps a nice Red Lobster or Olive Garden?  Not exactly:

Biden made the remarks at the Georgetown home of Senator John Kerry, where some 87 guests paid a minimum of $10,000 per couple to dine on char-grilled grass-fed New York strip steaks and white truffle mashed potatoes beneath a tent basked in soft pink lighting.

Ah, yes.  Nothing quite says middle class like grass-fed beef and white truffle mashed potatoes at the home of a multimillionaire, while bathed in soft pink lighting and collecting $10,000 checks.  And who were the middle-class attendees who ponied up the big bucks?

Pool reporter Tracy Jan of The Boston Globe noted some high-profile guests at the fundraiser, including “Elizabeth Bagley, former ambassador to Portugal and attorney specializing in trade and international law; Matthew Barzun, former Ambassador to Sweden who Obama has tapped to be his 2012 campaign finance chairman; Steven Green, former ambassador to Singapore; Bob Barnett, a Washington attorney who’s worked on eight national presidential campaigns helping candidates prepare for debates; Tom McMillen, former Maryland congressman; and Jack Manning, co-founder of Boston Capital.”

But don’t worry — these folks know the middle class.  They hire them to clean up afterwards.

Update: I originally had the headline as $10K a plate, but it was $10K per couple.  I’ve changed the headline, and thanks to the commenters who caught the error.

He is a low-life. I lost my temper with him, but in a very cold, not hot-headed way. The man is disgusting.

Well, give Boston Globe pool reporter Tracy Jan credit from recognizing a snarkable moment when he sees it — some reporters and others in the media are so in the tank for Obama that they wouldn’t have even jumped at the chance for another Biden comedy gold moment by describing the opulent settings at la maison du magnat de gigolo ketchup. They would have offered up a boilerplate report with none of the embellishments that scream out comical hypocrisy.

In fact, given that Pinch is Jan’s ultimate boss and has the sense of humor of a doorknob when it comes to embarrassing The Team, it wouldn’t be a shock after this goof of the VP and the Bay State’s haughty, French-looking senator to see Tracy Jan spend the summer adjusting to a new job as the Globe’s farm and livestock reporter (admittedly, not that much different from the person who has to follow Joe Biden around).

The topic was large carpet samples?

Not sure whose mistake it was, but let’s try wide swath, shall we?

You left your death threats back at QOTD.

Random actually got around to threatening people? Got a link?

The GOP has about as much in common with the middle class as a hungry tomcat has in common with a mouse, and the Tea Party didn’t do jack diddly to fix that. MelonCollie on March 13, 2012 at 10:33 AM

There’s nothing particularly virtuous about any social class.

I hear Dems slamming Wall Street all the time, so I figure that Wall Street must be evil in their eyes. Turns out that most Wall Street money went to Dems, particularly to Obooba, in 2008.

So maybe Dems touting the needs of the middle class is as genuine as their condemnations of Wall Street.

In fact, you can take it to the bank. The Dems want the wealthy’s money and the dependent class’s votes. Period.

Smart enough to figure out what he was stating, but too dumb to keep your mouth shut…really, grammar police have been banned from HA.
We argue ideas, not grammar…

Well technically that is true.

Romney has never been a middle class…

Do you read your own statements before you post?

No, liberal4life does not read its own statements before posting. Have you never heard of the “Infinite Monkey Theorem”? Lib4 is just one of those monkeys…

Never mind…found it. Reported.

It means Willard does not understand the peasants. He has been privileged his whole life. Born with a golden spoon in his mouth.
George Romney was worth millions. Mitt Romney has no idea what it means to be poor or middle class.

Most in Congress are millionaires. So lets weed out all those RICH people in Congress, eh??? I’d be fine with that. How about you, liberal4life?????

Congress a millionaires club?

Your Sentaor is (probably) a Millionaire

Congressional Members’ Personal Wealth Expands Despite Sour National Economy

Congress has disproportionate share of millionaires

Sorry I was slow to respond. I’m not allowed to cross link to different threads offending comments. The new way I have to do it requires more effort. It will still work however. I just follow them around for a while to whatever thread they are on and remind them they have forgotten something, ; )
