Who Says I’m Never Helpful To The Obama Campaign?

I offer the Obama campaign two responses to Joe Biden’s recent statement that tax cuts should go to “middle class people — people making under $150,000 a year,” contradicting recent Obama pledges to only raise taxes on those making more than $250,000 per year and to lower taxes for those making less than $200,00 per year.

Response One: “Our definition of rich is indeed elastic, and Joe the Plumber was correct when he said, ‘I mean, you know, 250 thousand dollars now — what if he decides well, you know, ‘150 thousand dollars, you’re pretty rich too, let’s go ahead and lower it again’.”

Response Two: “Joe Biden experiences frequent hallucinations and very little of what he says ever corresponds to reality. Everything he said should be ignored, and we pledge that he will be kept in an undisclosed location away from microphones in an Obama administration.”
