Biden says Americans are “no longer worried” about the economy

Another day brings another absurd sound bite from Vice President Joe Biden.

President Barack Obama’s right-hand man is so out of touch with society he thinks Americans feel that the economy is steady and confident enough that no foreign nations can overtake the U.S.

“They are no longer traumatized by what was a traumatizing event, the great collapse in 2008,” he said during remarks at the White House on Monday. “…They’re no longer, I think, worried about our economy being overwhelmed beyond our shores.”

Biden added that there is “very little doubt” about the nation’s ability to lead in the 21st Century “not only in terms of our foreign policy, our incredible defense establishment, but economically.”

Joe, what country are you living in? The state of our economy is still a big worry for many Americans.

    Yes well Old Uncle Joe says a lot of stupid stuff they pray Americans are no longer worried or watching them. I myself found the old well if an intruder enters your home you don’t need a AR15 what you need is a Dbl. Barreled Shotgun walk out onto your Balcony and fire two blast up into the air and watch them run.. Well again just goes to show how elitist these fools are .

    How many of use commoners have Balconies ?And I bet should I walk out into a front yard in Del. and fire 2 blast from a 12ga I’m going to jail..But Biden I’m sure is above that and he did not mention the free 24/7 armed guards he has for his family.. God I’m so happy I can say they never fooled me or got my vote .. My conscious is clear..

    He’s just saying that to try and boost the economy and settle the people’s minds so they will not pay attention to what is really going on. Everyone needs to research and learn about UN Agenda 21.

    My conscious is clear too, because I knew better than to vote for him either of the times… This next time, there will not be an election. Obama is planning on being appointed as President/Ruler in 2015. Great Job to all of those who did elect him in. Now you all will have to pay for your mistake.

  3. These guys do not have to worry for a pay check or health insurance.They really are out of touch.
