Normally when you remind a crowd how many jobs have been lost under your watch (and the pace is accelerating), you get a thunderous applause of appreciation for your efforts. But instead, Biden’s audience just sat on their hands — what gives?
Vice President Joe Biden got a laugh from his audience at a Wisconsin fundraising event Thursday when he tried to rile the crowd about the economic collapse of 2008.
â€œWe want to reward people who manufacture things in the United States, in Wisconsin, not to take them overseas to China and to other countries!â€ he said to a silent room at the event for Democratic gubernatorial nominee Tom Barrett, according to a White House pool report.
He continued, saying, â€œYouâ€™re the dullest audience Iâ€™ve ever spoken to,” at which point he got applause and laughs. “Do you realize how many jobs Wisconsin lost? Itâ€™s staggering!”
“And none of you ungrateful pricks even bothers to thank me!”
The enthusiasm among Democrats is palpable, and Joltin’ Joe’s is determined to kick that hornets nest until Democrats are stung into a coma on November 2nd.
Update: More “rallying the base through insults” from the administration. Ann Althouse points out this line from a Barack Obama fundraising email:
That change happens only from the bottom up. That change happens only because of you.
I doubt most remaining Obamaniacs will mind The One referring to them as “the bottom” though — they’ll probably take it as a compliment.
