More on the flip...
Sen. Biden loudly decried the hateful comments about Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama made by McCain-Palin supporters at several GOP rallies over the past week.
"Every single false charge, every single baseless accusation is a simple attempt to get you to focus on something other than what's affecting your family and your country," said Biden, who was cheered by some 6,000 people packed into a sports arena in the blue-collar city where he lived until he was 10.
Sen. Biden defended a comment he made last month in which he said the wealthiest Americans should show their patriotism by paying more in taxes.
Accusing businesses and wealthy individuals of using "offshore tax loopholes" to hide $100 billion a year in income, Biden told the crowd. "It is unpatriotic when you earn your money in the United States of America and you hide it offshore to avoid taxes, making sure YOU have to make up the difference."
His voice rising, Biden shouted, "It is unpatriotic to take $100 billion offshore and not pay your taxes! That is unpatriotic! So I don't need a lecture on patriotism! I've had it up to here!"
GO JOE, GO!!! Here's a video from a few days ago:
