Biden: ‘Bullets Aimed at You!’

At a campaign rally in Las Vegas this afternoon, Vice President Biden unveiled the second act of the GOPs plan for the middle class – the first, of course, being to “put y’all back in chains.”  According to the pool report of the event, Biden told the crowd: 

Ryan has written a book called ‘The Young Guns’ with two other fellas, members of the House, Republican leaders in the House and you had unfortunately the bullets are aimed at you. These guys talk — they use phrases — I’ve never heard them before — ‘a culture of dependency.’


As an aside, Biden has never heard the term “culture of dependency” in his 30 years in Washington?  Granted, it only returns 11.7 million Google results…

Update: Ryan spokesman Brendan Buck responds: “Today’s over-the-top rhetoric by Vice President Biden is disappointing, but not all that surprising.  In the absence of a vision or plan to move the country forward, the Vice President is left only with ugly political attacks beneath the dignity of the office he occupies.  Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will bring serious leadership to Washington that will focus on an agenda of job creation and economic growth that benefits all Americans.”
