Biden in 2008 Debate: People ‘Can Barely Pay to Fill Up Their Gas Tank’

Gas was less than two bucks a gallon when this stooge and Obama began occupying the White House. It’s pushing twice that across the nation and even more in California. Maybe the Obama plant “moderating” the debate tomorrow night can ask about how people can afford gas these days.

During the 2008 vice presidential debate, Joe Biden complained about how gas prices were so high at the time that the average “Joe” couldn’t afford to fill up his tank.

During the Oct. 2, 2008 vice presidential debate with Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, Biden was asked by moderator Gwen Ifill to comment about deregulation.

In his answer, then-Senator Biden took the opportunity to relate a conversation he had at a gas station with “a guy named Joey” who said he couldn’t afford to fill up his tank:

“So deregulation was the promise. And guess what? Those people who say don’t go into debt, they can barely pay to fill up their gas tank.

“I was recently at my local gas station and asked a guy named Joey Danco. I said, ‘Joey, how much did it cost to fill your tank?’ You know what his answer was? He said, ‘I don’t know, Joe. I never have enough money to do it.’”

“Joey Danco” was unavailable for comment.
