Vice President Biden said Tuesday that the middle class has been â€œburiedâ€ during the past four years, prompting a rare moment of concord with Republican Mitt Romneyâ€™s campaign.
â€œAgree with @joebiden, the middle class has been buried the last 4 years, which is why we need a change in November,â€ Romney said on Twitter.
â€œWe agree!â€ his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan (Wis.), told a crowd in Iowa. â€œThat means we need to stop digging by electing Mitt Romney as the next president of the United States.â€
Biden, speaking at a campaign event in North Carolina, said that Romney would raise taxes on the middle class. â€œHow they can justifyÂ .â€‰.â€‰.Â raising taxes on the middle class that has been buried the last four years?â€ he asked.
At a later event, Biden elaborated: â€œThe middle class was buried by the policies that Romney and Ryan have supported.â€
The Romney campaign obviously sees the remark as a potential stumble for President Obama, who has maintained a slight edge in the polls during the past two weeks.
Romney surrogate John Sununu, in a conference call with reporters, was asked if he thought the vice presidentâ€™s words would move poll numbers. The former New Hampshire governor replied, â€œNo, but I think it sets the stage for the debate that will take place tomorrow.â€
The comment â€œtells the public this is what you really ought to be looking forâ€ in the debate, Sununu added.
