    Biden Likens Republicans to ‘Squealing Pigs’ - ABC News

    MINNEAPOLIS — Vice President Joe Biden suggested a new image to associate with Republicans who opposed Democratic efforts to toughen regulations on Wall Street, characterizing them as “squealing pigs.”

    “Over the objections where they sound like squealing pigs, over the objections of Romney and all his allies, we passed some of the toughest Wall Street regulations in history, turning Wall Street back into the allocator of capital it always has been and no longer a casino. And they want to repeal it,” Biden said at an event in Minneapolis.

    Biden, who is in Minnesota for two events Tuesday followed by a stop in Detroit Wednesday, is on his first campaign swing since last week’s controversial “chains” comment. In Minneapolis, Biden rallied a crowd of over 1,500, according to campaign officials, trying to draw a contrast between the future he and President Obama offer and that which the Mitt Romney-Paul Ryan ticket has put forth.

    Just a bunch of fluff ... Wall Street is in both pockets and Wall Street is well represented in the Obama Administration. Democrats may be a bit tougher in that area ... but not much - not enough to make a big impact. If the democrats wanted such an impact they would allow the total audit of the Fed.

    Biden might be the biggest moron ever to hold the office of VP. He's certainly in the race.

    I honestly could believe my eyes and ears a couple of weeks ago when I was watching CNBC and learned that something like 50% of the Frank Dodd legislation isn't even written yet. They're still trying to figure out key parts of the bill. How do you pass a bill that either isn't completed, or has key parts that haven't been certified yet?

    Barack should keep Biden locked up in his office until this is all over, he should also let him keep the Obama Dog in there with him to play with.

    Biden over there, building a brick fort to play in >>>>>>>:bricks:

    Because they needed to get some of it out there to get back at those awful banks for charging you Overdrafts when you spent more than you have.

    That makes sense because in Washington spending money you don't have is thought of as "bold leadership".
