For the past four years, Vice President Joe Biden has been a bit of a pain in neck for several people in the White House.
The Veep has become rather infamous for speaking his mind, dropping gaffes, and cursing like a sailor near hot mics.
Of course, we've loved it.
Now, his mouth is being out to put work for the 2012 campaign as attack dog.
It all started while Joe was making a campaign appearance in Davenport, Iowa, on Wednesday. Before that day, the Obama campaign had been relatively quiet about Republican front-runner Mitt Romney, letting the other GOP candidates pile on the attacks. Now, however, they seem to be testing the waters with an attack strategy that's aimed at highlighting Mitt’s corporate tax policies and history of outsourcing.
And Joe seems to be the one leading the charge, telling a crowd of supporters that Mitt’s proposed tax system would reward companies that send American jobs overseas.
“Our tax cuts go to companies that create jobs over here. The Romney tax cut goes to companies that create jobs overseas,” the Veep said. “It’s a fundamentally different philosophy from ours.”
Mitt’s campaign was quick to shoot back, with a spokesperson telling a reporter that Joe “is part of an administration that has done more to devastate the middle class than any in modern history."
OK, so this first volley about taxes might be a little boring, but at least it’s something. We’re just happy to see Joe finally getting in there and mixing it up.
And, fingers crossed, it looks like it's gonna get good!
