Joseph R. Biden Jr. will oversee an Obama administration effort to find ways of building up the ranks of the middle class, that ambiguously defined segment of society with which most Americans identify.
At first I thought this was one of those Onion press releases. Putting Biden in charge of a middle class task force is akin to putting Cheney in charge of a task force on personal liberties.
If Biden is so concerned about the middle class, why as a Senator, did he support policies that destroyed the working class. Why did he support destructive trade deals that sent American jobs outward. Why did he author a bankruptcy bill that makes it almost impossible for the working class to file but easier for the rich.
Well exactly how will Biden’s expertise be utilized by Obama, by suggesting center right, wall street approved, economic advisers, of course.
