Joe Biden Doesn't 'Blame People' For Voting For That Felon In West Virginia Over Obama

• http://www.businessinsider.com, Brett LoGiurato

This gaffe will also likely make Joe Biden apologize to Barack Obama.

Biden was campaigning in Ohio on Thursday when he gave an interview to WTOV-TV in Steubenville. He was asked what he "made out of" the fact that 41 percent of West Virginian Democrats voted for a convicted felon, Keith Judd, over Barack Obama, in the state's primary.

His response? He didn't "blame people."

"Look, I come from a household where whenever there's a recession, somebody around my grandpop or my dad's table lost their job—a brother, a sister, a friend, a neighbor," he said. "When you're out of work, man, it's a depression. And a lot of people are still hurt because of this God-awful recession we inherited that cost 8.4 million jobs before we could really get going. And so I don't blame people. They're frustrated. They're angry."

Now, to be fair, Biden went off on a campaign tangent and probably wasn't even directly responding to the reporter's question at that point. But forgetting the original point of the question, going off on a tangent and making Obama's eyes roll for the umpteenth time — classic Biden.
