This is a great opening “comebacker” for the McCain ads attacking Obama for being of all things, “elitist”.
As Joe Biden spoke today for the first time as Barack Obama’s running mate, he used the opportunity to attack John McCain, distancing himself from the Republican opponent he has called a friend.
After an introduction from Obama, Biden launched into a speech that, among other things, said McCain can’t understand the struggles of middle-class Americans when he owns seven homes.
“Ladies and gentlemen, your kitchen table is like mine. You sit there at night before you put the kids — after you put the kids to bed and you talk, you talk about what you need. You talk about how much you are worried about being able to pay the bills. Well, ladies and gentlemen, that’s not a worry John McCain has to worry about. It’s a pretty hard experience. He’ll have to figure out which of the seven kitchen tables to sit at,” Biden said, drawing cheers from the audience.
