Joe Biden: The Middle Class Has Been Buried The Last Four Years
Plus -- The Tape Hurts Obama?

He says this, intentionally (not a verbal typo), arguing against Romney's plans to increase taxes on the middle class which the Obama Campaign invented.

This is a nothing post. Okay, here's something:

The tape isn't damaging to us, it seems. John Nolte tweets:

Hannity has said the video is from the Daily Caller and the network is Fox. So you can all relax. Still guessing Rev. Wright.

I had heard the DC had it, and many people guessed the video Hannity was talking up was the same video. That seems confirmed, now.

So... Popcorn?

@morgenr has cranked up his SuperGoogle and wonders if the tape Drudge is talking about is the long-rumored tape of Michelle Obama calling whiteys, um, "whiteys."

I don't even remember forgetting that rumor. Anyway, that claim was made in 2008, and one could imagine they're talking about an old tape from a couple of years before.

This is complete speculation, of course. Incidentally, I've just heard from someone that story turned out to be wrong -- Michelle Obama said "Why'd he" not "Whitey."

Given the high rate of partisans misunderstanding words and then trying to crank up a major issue about it -- something we see again and again and again -- that sounds plausible to me.

So, probably not that.

That's why we call 'em "guesses."

From a Commenter: Hannity tips that it is Obama himself on the tape. I didn't hear it myself, but I'm in "push out anything" mode.
