#1 I remember four years ago, a lot of 'Burgers thought Joe would be the end of Obama. Who knew it'd take four years?

#2 Party line - 'This isn't raising YOUR taxes; this is just restoring the taxes on the evil rich people to what they were before Boosh gave the Treasury away to his pals.'

#3 It's Joe Biden.

I do not think he is what he thinks he is.

#5 It is like Biden doesn't want another four years. Either that or he understands Obama's policies are destroying the country and he's still a patriot. In that case play the nearly senile old man and be a hero even though nobody realizes it.

#6 Joe just being honest. The Dems are the party of tax increases. That is what they do. The increases are most likely greater than whatever they tell you. ObamaCare is not free as many of Bummer's voters think.

Socialism works until it runs out of other people's money. Taking money from one who works and giving it to another who does not want to work is immoral.

#7 Bingo, rjschwarz. It's like Biden sometimes forgets whose team he's on. In lucid moments his refreshing honesty inadvertently makes the case against his principal. Good for him. I think.

#9 I noticed Romney used Bidens own words "crushed and buried" Wednesday night. Throwing subtley back in Zero's face. A nice knife twist

#10 I do not believe the "Joe is a secret patriot" story. First, he is a liberal Democrat. As such he must be presumed innocent of any patriotism until proven guilty.

Second, he is an idiot. So I don't want to credit him with some secret master plan.

What I will believe is that the Obama people have been treating Biden like an idiot step child for the last 4 years. That works on many levels. And Joe is a small, bitter man who knows this is it for him. He will never be president. So his choices are 4 more years with Obama or take the bastard out with him.

#11 Donks speak of Trunks using 'coded' words. It's Freudian Projection of their own communications. However, their base needs reassuring cause they can't decode the party's own Newspeak, so Donks have Joe to plain talk to that base.

Joe just being honest. The Dems are the party of tax increases.

No, that's not quite it. The Dems are the party that believes the state has first call on all labor and all wealth. That is why they view taking less out of your paycheck as a COST to government. That's why they were shocked at the reaction to "you didn't build that".

Bluntly, to the Dems, you are the state's chattel, and anything they let you keep is as a favor.

#14 Joe's primary mission is to give old white men a bad name, and he's accomplishing his mission.

#15 Mr. Biden's primary mission at this point is to send up trial balloons.

If this line works, it'll be implemented by the President.

If it doesn't, well it's "that crazy but lovable Uncle Joe Biden" schtick - again.

#16 Joe plays well with some blue collar people. That's why he's off leash.

#17 I wish one Repub would say to this moron - "okay, Mr. Biden - you're gonna ask the wealthy to pay more for what exactly? If you tax the top-1% more (or anyone else for that matter) what are you going to do w/that money? Are you going to pay down the deficit w/that money? What exactly do you think the middle class will endure? We'd like to see your plan for "all that money". BTW - This is not Sherwood Forest and the wealthy in this country are not the Sheriff of Nottingham and you Sir are no Robin Hood. Taking money from people who earned it in the guise of "fairness" is called theft where I come from."

#18 ...yeah, the self identified Robin Hood types seem to forget it was Prince John and the Sheriff [ie THE GOVERNMENT!] who were extracting TAXES from the humble working folk.
