Vice President Joe Biden said the middle class "has been buried the last four years" at a campaign event in Charlotte, North Carolina:

"This is deadly earnest, man. This is deadly earnest," Biden said. "How they can justify--how they can justify--raising taxes when the middle class has been buried the last four years... How in Lord's name..."

Of course, Barack Obama has been president the last four years, and Biden has been vice president.
