From Salon here:
“I believe that we were not letting an awful lot of people — high school-educated, mostly Caucasian, but also people of color — know that we understood their problems,” Biden said. He also warned against “a bit of elitism that’s crept in” to the party he has served on the national level for 44 years.
“What are the arguments we’re hearing? ‘Well, we’ve got to be more progressive.’ I’m not saying we should be less progressive,” Biden said. “We should be proud of where the hell we are, and not yield an inch.”He added, though, that “you can’t eat equality.”
You know, you can eat economic equality but that wasn’t the message Clinton and the mainstream Democrats were peddling. If you have a good union job and you’re not getting the shit squeezed out of you economically you can eat just right.
While Clinton has had the honor to hold the bag for this huge miscalculation Mr. Obama and Mr. Biden had 8 years to do right by these folks and they didn’t. He knows that but he’s not talking much about that.
But the Democrats have been bending those folks over for 30+ years and now they’ve finally gotten the bill for their services. And his name is Trump.
