PennLive:
Vice President Joe Biden, in a Pittsburgh campaign stop on Tuesday, called on voters to embrace Democrats both up and down the ballot on Nov. 8. He also said that after months of rebuking Donald Trump for his controversial campaign-style and rhetoric, he's "finished" with the Republican candidate.
...

Biden, who is working on behalf of Trump opponent Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign and those of other Democratic candidates for down ballot Senate seats, has spent months criticizing Trump for his rhetoric on everything from immigration to Islam. And on Tuesday, he continued the attack, while appearing increasingly exasperated by the subject and the tone of this campaign.

"This man [Trump] is thoroughly unqualified based on his conduct and abuse of power and lack of substance and lack of knowledge. He lacks the basic knowledge needed to be president of the United States, and so I'm finished with Donald Trump," Biden said.

His dismissal comes as Clinton maintains a sizable lead over Trump in the polls, polls which Trump disputes. It also comes as Clinton herself turns the focus of her campaign toward ensuring the election of down ballot Democrats for Congress in states like Pennsylvania.
...

He used the Senate's failure to confirm Obama administration Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland, as proof, calling it an "abuse of power" and an abuse of the Republican Party's majority.

Biden, while calling Toomey a "decent guy," linked him to that "abuse of power" as an incumbent Senate Republican. Biden also said Toomey's failure to disavow Trump equaled support, adding, "Silence is consent."

Biden also blamed Trump for monopolizing media coverage of this election, saying, "Because of the outrageous and from comical to ugly things Trump has said from the primary to today, the press has had no choice but to lead the top of the news with these things. And so what happens is he undermines the notion of what a democratic election is supposed to be about. It's supposed to be about debate. ... And nobody really has heard much about the issues in this campaign. Think about it."

    1. Trump is monopolizing the media? No, the media, in collusion w/ the Hillary campaign, is flooding the media w/ attack after attack of unsupported accusations in order to hide the true corruption, the true deplorability, the true & proven criminal history of the Clinton's. Trying to search any facts are almost impossible due to a flood of subjective, unsubstantiated attack pieces on Trump filling the 1st several returned pages (it is why they use every sin that Hillary & Bill are truly, provably guilty for, in their attacks, as th keywords will return those pages and hide the Clinton's past treasonous deeds).

    2. Harry Reid has sat on over 200 bills proposed by the Republican controlled House alone. He can legally do this-a law that needs to be changed immediately. THEN Reid goes to the press and claims the Republicans have brought him nothing-no solutions/alternatives to what exists. Another lie but the people are unaware of the truth. The GOP is so full on RINOS-democrats infiltrating the GOP that they have a hard time getting anything done. People need to wake up and pay attention to what their individual Senator and Rep are doing-how are they voting on bills and do they even attend?

    3. What he is describing are not loopholes but legitimate tax deductions.
      The example he gave describing the stock is referring the death tax. Taxing someone's estate. Trump wants to eliminate the death tax but it sounds like Clinton wants to either lower or remove the exemptions so that all estates are taxed.

    4. All of this tax, tax, tax needs to end. The government, and we as the beneficiaries of wasteful programs funded by those tax dollars, have got to bear more of the responsibility and live within our means. It's ridiculous to so heavily tax people that they cannot make ends meet, so they have to use the programs supported by their money. Round and round we go.

    5. They don't want to fix it...they all benefit from the tax breaks. They just want everyone to think only rich conservatives are crooks for using the loopholes.

  3. From what YOU'VE said in the past, you can be bothered by anything Trump says? You lie about it all ... even though your own people say the different ... what are you thinking? You're just calling the people listening to you stupid, expecting them to believe you and not actually know the facts ...

    2. She can't. She obviously didn't listen to it. I did. The whole way through. He said nothing of the sort. Shared how much we could increase the GDP if women who want to work but can't due to the costs of childcare were to re-enter the workforce. The man shows nothing but respect for women in this speech.

      Delete
    3. This is supposedly the speech where he said that. He never said that. He very vaguely implied that we could grow the economy with more women working. The rest is spin (also known as lies).

      Delete
    4. What he said was that if child care was more affordable women who wanted to return to the workforce could. I personally know that to be true, from my own experience when my son was born 18 years ago!

    5. What about putting MEN back to work!!!?? Why do they only want women with children to grow the economy?

  6. Biden states, "They know when something is right and wrong" Huh, I guess I'm confused then why Hillary AND Katy are completely okay with late term abortion and supporting Planned Parenthood. Also, have you ever considered that women stay home because they want to raise their kids?

    1. More than half of our college students are women.Women who work hard to earn not only an education but also skills to enter a career that many are passionate about.Our society does not only them a disservice when we make having children and working an either/or choice.I come from Germany where most of the women I know are not only able to have a career,but they have the societal support to have children and stay at home with them if they choose.The cost of childcare for many women is huge,I would know-I have worked as a nanny and childcare provider for decades.Why not make it more affordable for the women who WANT to o both-work and rear children?

    2. And women who do stay home by choice certainly aren't lazy. Women in the home probably work harder than many jobs outside of the home.

  7. He says "If we could put all the woman back to work we would increase the GDP" Thats assuming there are jobs for them. McDonalds or Starbucks doesnt boost the GDP

  8. He says that the only reason women with kids are not in the workforce are because of the cost of childcare. Anyone have a problem with that? Anyone actually like taking care of their own kids? He then advocates for 660 BILLION in new spending so that more women could go back to work. Am I missing something? Why exactly should I, the single woman, be forced to pay for other women's choice to pursue a career instead of taking care of her children? Why am I monetarily penalized for her choice to have kids?

    How exactly does placing an enormous debt on the tax payer make it less expensive for women to get childcare? Subsidies? Hillary's statement, "It takes a village" makes it sound like it. For goodness sake, it sounds like Obamcare all over again, and it'll really take the cake if stay-at-home parents are penalized for not purchasing a childcare plan or whatever garbage they dream up to take more of our money without giving us a darn thing.

    What really blows my mind is that one way he plans to pay for this is by capping charitable deductions. There are many successful people in this nation that give generously to charities for veterans, hurricane relief, animals, medical needs, housing for the needy and homeless, and children in need, both here and abroad. Biden is suggesting that they will now have to pay taxes on money given away. What's the real world consequence? These people will cap their giving at 28% and charities and the people they help will go without. There are truly awesome people who give up to 90% of their income to charity, and that will now be impossible if this plan gets enacted. Biden doesn't mind taking from people groups who are really in need to pander to the last one they think will vote for her, since they've already screwed over legal immigrants, Haitians, veterans, tax payers, and any citizen that's signed up for health insurance.

  9. It is interesting that Clinton is going to reset the tax deduction to 28%. Coming from a candidate who deducted over $1 million on her taxes last year FOR CHARITY. The charity? The Clinton Foundation. Huh.

  14. It was right around 32 minutes in. I heard the same thing as Stephanie. He did not use the word lazy and he did not say women who don't work cased the recession. His respect for women was all over this speech. "Spinjob" has put out a completely false comment that includes the one sentence if all women worked our GDP would go up by.8 % but he wasn't blaming or shaming women. A statement of fact due to unaffordable child care. Listen or read it for yourself

  15. Perhaps spin. But how do we know it wasn't a ploy just to get people to watch the video. We don't know who is working for who out there. I believe in the political world reverse psychology is used. And this is a perfect example.

  19. http://russp.us/racism.htm This is what a true Democrat is. They are racist just check out LBJ's comments about calling blacks the N word. They will do anything to control this country and to control backs and minorities. They do not care about Americans. They care about a vote so they can RULE this country. Hillary sat by and watched as Americans died. She stood by her husband as he was found to have sex with women while in office using his power to do that and then lie to the entire country over it. Hillary says she is working to protect women against this behavior but she did not stand up for the women to protect them against her husband, she turned a blind eye of the whole situation and that is what she does when it does not benefit her. Democrats have controlled this country for eight years and they have segregated us back before the Civil War era. Joe Biden says the Republican party was great up to Abraham Lincoln. Do you remember that Lincoln's vice President was a Democrat and became president after his assassination and Remember Republicans wanted to free the slaves and Democrats wanted slavery. Democrats are only out for one reason and that is to RULE this country and everyone in it. That is tyranny and that is why we have the 2nd amendment. To protect us against tyranny and that is why the Democrats push to remove the 2nd amendment. So that we cannot control our government. WE the people are the rulers of our government not our government rules us.

  20. That is the longest most un-educated response to anything I have ever seen. Did you know that the South over the last thirty years completely switched majority party affiliation. The south was solidly Democratic when the democrats stood for segregation and legal unequal treatment of the country's citizens based on color. African-Americans were and continue to be legally segregated. The Democratic party was the party that stood for Jim Crow, and segregation and that is the last time the party platforms have switched so dramatically. The Republican party today is the Democratic party of LBJ and the anti-civil rights movement. Have you ever wondered why African-Americans are a solid Democratic vote? According to your logic, they have been voting for the wrong party all these years since Lincoln was a Republican. Lincoln's Republican platform was progressive and dare I say "liberal" for that time period. He thought all people should be treated equally. Here is the problem, racist ignorant people don't study history and have trouble comprehending things. They can't admit they are racist, so they point the finger the other way, like kids on a playground who get caught. They point to someone else and say "it wasn't me, it was him". That is what you have done. The most "controversial" thing in my opinion is when he suggests that a remark by a college student that the only people who should be able to vote should be college-educated and know the issues. I agree that people should have to take a test to see if they understand the issues. However, college doesn't create intelligence. It helps, but one can become educated without going to college, but not reading articles like this. College would teach you that you need various sources with evidence in order to prove a point.

  21. Hah! Ol' Joe spent more than eight of his 13 minutes slamming Trump - whom he said he "wasn't going to spend much time on"! 'Reckon that he had nothing to tout about ol' Hill'ry as he spent his "serious time" lying about Trump.
