Biden hits Romney in primary night address

(CNN) – As Republican presidential candidates monitored vote returns from Tuesday's New Hampshire primary, Vice President Joe Biden slammed the contest's projected winner as out of touch with middle class Americans.

Speaking to New Hampshire voters via teleconference, Biden took specific aim at Mitt Romney, saying the former Massachusetts governor was more concerned with wealthy businesses than middle class workers.

Biden conceded Romney's widely-commented-on comment that he "likes being able to fire people" was "probably taken a little out of context," but said the remark nonetheless reflected Romney's true sentiments.

"He thinks it's more important for the stockholders and the shareholders and the investors and the venture capital guys to do well than for those employees to be part of the bargain," Biden said.

    Reading these comments reminds me of school days. A bunch of spiteful children making stupid comments. The Bidens of this world should get the Hell out of Government and let intelligent folk get things done.

    This is so interesting and telling at the same time. This is the very same Biden that voted for the Graham, Leach, Billey Act. The GLB Act is the very act that many Dems are blaming the housing market crash on, even though 37 other Dems voted for it and it was signed by Clinton, a Dem! Too funny if it wasn't so sad! The hypocracy and lack of credibility by many in DC is astounding!
