At a fish fry for mine workers in rural Southwest Virginia, the Delaware Senator commiserated on being from coal country himself — and did his damndest to convince the blue collar, mostly white Democrats he’s on the ticket to win over that Obama’s one of them as well.One of rural Democrats’ biggest fears about Obama? That he’ll come after the Second Amendment. Not so, said Biden — and he’d better not try.“I guarantee you, Barack Obama ain’t taking my shotguns, so don’t buy that malarkey,” Biden said angrily. “They’re going to start peddling that to you.” “I got two, if he tries to fool with my Beretta, he’s got a problem.”
No, Joe . . . you're on his side, remember? Obama? The guy you want to be your future boss?
So Joe Biden did "his damndest" to convince a bunch of blue collar, mostly white Democrats in the South - what we'd call good old boys or red necks - that Mr. Obama, he's one of them too. And he ain't taking that shotgun y'all are so bitterly clinging to.
Though, I reckon not many of them boys got themselves a Beretta - i'zat some sorta Eyetalian car or sumthin'?
