Obama tells Biden to just be himself
Fri, 12 Oct 2012 7:37a.m.
President Barack Obama has offered his take on the debate between Vice President Joe Biden and Congressman Paul Ryan, saying "Joe just needs to be Joe."
Obama offered his remark to in an interview with ABC News on the eve of Thursday night's vice presidential debate.
Biden has been a controversial figure, occasionally prone to making rhetorical gaffes. Obama himself came under withering criticism for his lacklustre performance in last week's debate against Republican challenger Mitt Romney.
Biden, who served Delaware in the US Senate for several terms before becoming vice president, got into a rough patch recently when he told a campaign audience in Charlotte, NC, that the middle-class in America has been "buried" the last four years - the same time frame of Obama's first term as president.

Joe WAS Joe. I am a proud American and a woman and a member of the working middle class. I am an independent, but I have NO reason to vote Republican in the 2012 Presidential election. Romney owns stock in companies that have gotten tax cuts from moving manufacturing plants/jobs to China! Romney doesn't pay the same percentage of taxes that my husband and I do! Trickle down doesn't fall to us; it obliterates us. Billionaires don't have an interest in the 47%.
