The Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden, spoke to University of Pennsylvania students on October 18th. That's usually not a huge deal. The VP gives speeches all over the place. What is a big deal is that during the speech, Biden said he wished that opponents of Obama's "jobs bill" knew what it was like to be robbed and raped.

[Opponents of Obama's jobs bill say] this is just temporary. Well, let me tell you, it's not temporary when that 911 call comes in and a woman's being raped if cop shows up in time to prevent the rape--it's not temporary to that woman. It's not temporary to the guy whose store is being held up and has a gun pointed at his head, if a cop shows up and he's not killed, that's not temporary to that store owner... I wish they had some notion what it's like to be on the other side of a gun or a 200-pound man standing over you telling you to submit.
This kind of demagoguery is unbecoming of the Vice President of the United States.
