VP Debate Turns to Jobs

On to the economy. Vice President Biden brought up Romney’s infamous 47 percent comments Thursday night saying “I’ve had it up to here with this notion—47%—it’s time they contribute a bit,” Biden said. “They should be signing a pledge to middle class saying we’re going to level the playing field.” Biden also praised Obama’s handling of the economic crisis, and the rescuing of GE. “Did they inherit a tough situation? Absolutely,” Ryan responded. In defense of Romney’s 47 percent gaffe, Ryan had this to say: “I think the vice president very well knows that sometimes the words don’t come out of your mouth the right way.”
