Not one to ever make much sense, Vice President Joe Biden has delivered yet another head-scratching speech.
“Can somebody do me a favor,” Glenn asked on radio this morning. “Can somebody figure out what the heck Joe Biden is even talking about? I want you to listen to him yell at the American people and tell me what he's talking about.”
In a speech to the AFSCME – the federal and state workers union – Biden rambled in a diatribe that sounded more Karl Marx than George Washington.
BIDEN: And guess what I just described? I just described you! You're the ones who make that possible. We owe you. He shouldn't be vilified. You provide the safe neighborhoods. You provide the good schools. You provide the school lunch program. You provide the day care centers. You provide the hospital. You provide the roads. Being able to own your home and not just rent it. It's being able to live in a safe neighborhood where your kids can walk the streets, where there's a playground that's not polluted. Where you can send your kid to a decent school knowing if they do well, they got a chance to go to college. And if they have that chance, knowing you have a chance to get them there, that's what meaning a middle class person is. That's not asking too much! That's who we are! We owe you! God bless you and may God protect our troops!
“What? It's what? He's talking about – he’s talking to the government union workers. He's not talking to the general population,” Glenn said.
“Now let's – I don't even know where to begin on this. Let's start with being middle class is about a guaranteed minimum standard of living? That all Americans would have at least a middle class lifestyle? Where is this one coming from, Karl Marx?”
The United States is unique in that it guarantees equal opportunity, but there is no such thing as guaranteed outcome.
“We do guarantee that you're not going to be held back from opportunity because of the color of your skin, maybe the content of your character, but not the color of your skin,” Glenn said. “If you can do it, you can do it. Guaranteed opportunity, that's not what Joe Biden is even preaching about here.”
These comments are rather shocking, even for Biden, who has a proclivity toward shouting as of late. Regardless, this could be the most blatant statement of this administration’s beliefs yet.
“Joe! Why are you yelling!? Why are you yelling all the time,” Glenn asked. “What is it that's making you so angry?! It's okay, man. We all have a chance. We all have a chance, Joe.”
