With his shirt sleeves rolled up and tie askew, Joe Biden went full-metal-jacket yesterday in a blistering speech in comfortable New Hampshire. Calling ISIS "Barbarians," Biden then proclaimed, "The American people are so much stronger, so much more resolved than any enemy can fully understand,” adding that "We don’t forget. We take care of those who are grieving, and when that’s finished, they should know we will follow them to the gates of hell until they are brought to justice, because hell is where they will reside." By 'we', we assume he means non-combat-boots-on-the-ground-wearing humanitarian advisers?
Not quite the rhetoric of Ramzan Kadyrov, but close.
Then, of course, he returned to more critical things like slamming policies that hurt the middle class - odd since his own Fed is the one doing it... (as The Washinton Post reports)
Biden's remarks came as he, flanked by Democratic members of Congress, delivered a populist speech about the importance of the middle class, which he called the backbone of the U.S. economy.
"The middle class is the fabric that stitches together this country unlike any other nation in the world. The middle class, when it’s doing well everybody does well." Biden declared.
"The reason why America has been the most stable nation in the world is because we’ve had an ever-growing middle class where people believe that if they play by the rules they get a shot."
