Back to the campaign trail now it's exactly one week after his controversial.
-- job backing changes -- remarks vice president Joseph Biden sounding off once again.
About regulating Wall Street but this time is using some new imagery to describe Republicans.
Did Jackson good -- sound like it's really -- over the objections.
Bob Romney did all his allies -- -- Some of the toughest Wall Street regulations and -- straight.
Turning Wall Street back didn't shoot the alligator capital it always has banned and no longer casino and they want to repeal it.
That's such as everybody's attention.
-- causes here as the host of -- -- radio show course and Gretchen Hamel.
Former spokeswoman for the House Republican Conference she's also the executive director for public notice also -- on a -- knows quite a bit about thinks president.
Good morning so tonight you think the -- is the smartest animal on the farm.
What you know grown up on the -- -- in Oklahoma that's exactly what my momma always told me that if you wanted to watch -- you get -- big because they're Smart they're always the first -- -- danger.
But I'm serious now -- that's exactly what's wrong with this campaign -- his remarks like that they're down in the slop they're down in the -- and we're just basically.
-- -- at each other inside of talking about the real issues.
-- I think is kind of interesting about this you know both of these comments Allen have been sort of leveled -- Wall Street you know and and this time around.
The Wall Street money has not been good to the Obama campaign that money has dried up is gone and moved over to the Romney -- -- not surprising that -- sort of all bets are off.
When it comes to pointing the finger at this group.
But because Barack Obama regulated well it's really came down on Wall Street he he went after Wall Street's early earlier on in his administration.
It kept us really -- and letting your -- say that pigs -- such wonderful animals so I guess Joseph Biden was complementing.
They are excited.
-- coming back positive about the other side is -- to -- out there you know accusing Obama and Biden of stoking fear and envy.
And misrepresenting them on position after position you know they got a bigger problem I mean -- got a big problem on the phrase forcible rape.
Which he refused to explain where -- is a much more serious issue than squealing -- so I think he's a lot more explaining to do than Biden does.
Well it wanna you know what if they use them will we'll see we hear anything more about that.
-- it's interesting that you know you get transcripts released from a speeches that that you know the highest level.
Of government and people get the transcripts are never released at least I haven't been recently that I can find Joseph Biden -- -- you never know he's going off script.
Or is this step is you know baked in the cake for him to say.
At these events Gretchen and -- I wanna -- both -- you think about that is is Joseph Biden going off script or is this very calculated you know is he the person has sent out to sort of level these things that get picked up by -- and everybody else in the press.
I think this is him being completely off script but having said that I mean he's not honest -- -- get everything he says.
-- carries a lot of weight in carry -- away in the minds of voters and they're sending Joseph Biden down to the Republican National Convention next week and you can help that.
They now this is going to be a great opportunity for them because they're welcoming him with open -- not.
Well let's not let off the -- are calculated and allies that the whole of the beautiful -- beauty of Joseph Biden is that he's not calculated that he speaks in the heart.
He speaks passionately.
He's a much smarter guy than he gets credit for.
He knows he's very well steeped in policy he was brought on the ticket because that is a great if familiarity with policy.
He was a great senator and I think when we taken out of you know -- these little sound but we're running -- sound -- campaign on both sides and now there's a lot more to Joseph Biden substantially.
Let me that I missed -- play a little bit more what he said and lessons.
The middle class is coming back they have been Rampage that he had been wrapped.
But -- started -- come back.
-- middle class coming back and is it due to the policies of the Obama administration Gretchen first and then -- on.
I mean I don't think these policies are bringing -- middle class back I think every middle class American out there we'll tell you.
And fact there was a poll earlier this week where nearly six in ten Americans said that they are not better off than they -- that.
Four years ago and that's the first time since Carter that they sent back.
This is -- needs to be about the policies -- doesn't need to be about these little snippets here and there we need to be taught.
He -- a larger issues and real solutions brand new poll this morning on 61%.
Say that the country's on the wrong track.
Well the 61% though are not saying they favor Mitt Romney.
-- ivory you know Barack Obama according to the Wall Street Journal poll that came out yesterday -- four points -- he's doing well in swing states so.
If he is doing so poorly and terms of all of a number of months when he -- once in a row of job creation after losing three quarters million jobs a month self when he that the fact is -- middle class is doing better you can actually have the metric.
That question is are better from one of them now I want to start the matter from where they started this administration that -- -- the -- what -- -- An issue with the economy right now and people favor Romney over Obama winning time city economy we have -- ports 80% more debt and we did this stimulus failed by its own promises we had unemployment over eight Purcell mountains -- -- what you're saying posse of really aren't lending market because he doesn't.
Jordan but Ryan -- are not talking about it.
They're talking about other things are talking about that it distracted by this Aiken thing they got a lot of problems and if what you're saying mr.
-- you would think.
That Mitt Romney would -- -- doing a lot better and all the national polls but he's doing.
He he is not.
I resonated with regular guy I really any act is doing out there you know a lot more than we -- will we started this discussion including that a squealing pig is actually good thing.
So thank you very much Scranton sailor in all the games -- this out there Allan good to see is that is that it's.
