Vice President Joe Biden: “There’s a lot of people in Florida that have good reason to be upset because they’ve lost jobs, even though 50 some percent of the American people think the economy tanked because of the last administration, that’s not relevant. What’s relevant is, we’re in charge. And right now, we are the ones in charge, and it’s gotten better but it hasn’t gotten good enough. And in states like Florida it’s even been more stagnant because of the real estate market. And so I don’t blame them for being mad. We’re in charge, so they’re angry.”
Joe Biden: “We are in charge. We have turned it [the economy] around.”

Howard Dean: “If I was head of DNC, I would be quietly rooting for [a government shutdown].”
White, 63 year-old Howard Dean: “The TEA party is all over 55 and white; this is a shrinking minority. The shrinkier they get, the madder they get. This is why they have gotten so far off the deep end.” You make the call, whether or not he has gotten so far off the deep end. EEEEEYAH!!
