Vice President Joe Biden could soon be earning the nickname, Walk Away Joe after an exchange with a custard shop owner in Wisconsin. According to online reports, during his visit the store manager offered Biden a cone. Biden asked the manager what he owed him.
“Don’t worry about it,” the manager told him. “Lower our taxes and we’ll call it even.”
Joe walked away without comment and later told the manager, “Why can’t you say something nice instead of trying to be a smart-ass all the time?”
All the time? Unless he’s met this guy before, that’s a bit presumptuous of Biden. And if he considers asking for lower taxes being a smart-ass, it’s no wonder Biden is no favorite of the Tea Party Movement.
Maybe the manager should have offered Biden some free pool filters or something…
