BIDEN ON THE STUMP
Vice President Joe Biden returned to Northeastern Pennsylvania this afternoon to campaign for Senator Arlen Specter. Specter now a Democratic was the recipient of great praise from the current Veep. Before a crowd of 300, name Democrats like Bob Casey Junior, Congressmen Chris Carney and Paul Kanjorski and various and sundry Democratic party heavy hitters sung the praises of Specter who is in a primary fight with Congressman Joe Sestak. Biden gave an impassioned speech on behalf of Specter and the Democratic agenda. Biden referred to some of Specter’s fellow Senate members as people not understanding the concerns of the common man. Repeating over and over, Biden rhetorically asked “Who are these men and where did they come from, how were they raised”? alluding to members of the GOP who want to stop unemployment benefits for jobless workers. Biden a fine orator had the crowd jumping in his short visit to NEPA. Hopefully the Vice President’s remarks will help uninterested or wavering Democrats realize what they owe as a society to a public servant like Arlen Specter.
