VP Biden walks into a frozen custard shop in Wisconsin Friday. Full story in the L.A. Times Top of the Ticket blog:
After Biden gets his custard, he asks the store manager how much he owes him.
“Lower our taxes and we’ll call it even,” the manager replied.
Biden didn’t acknowledge that. Refusing to even look at him, Biden turned and....
...walked away from the manager, appearing to just blow him off.
It’s odd that Biden didn’t have something to say because politicians get hit on this all the time. Republican or Democrat, people always tell elected officials they want their taxes lowered.
You would expect a “God love ya, we’re doin’ everything we can to get the economy jump-started again.”
A few minutes later, Biden is caught on video again telling the manager: “Why don’t you say something nice instead of being a smartass all the time? Say something nice.”
The manager went on to tell a local TV reporter that the vice president went up to him later and whispered that he was just joking. The manager also said, however, it didn’t appear to him that Biden appreciated the comment.
That’s self-evident. You can pick that up in Biden’s body language.
Biden's latest gaffe is yet another revealing insight into the character of those at the top of the Democrat Party. It's how they treat the average, working American in unscripted moments that shows who and what they really are. It's a disdain for the common man; a theme Obama has also echoed in unguarded moments when he referred to voters who cling to guns and religion [video].
The lesson here: Elitists like Biden, Obama and the Democrat hierarchy expect to rule over us without complaint or hindrance. Shut up and do as you are told!
