Biden: ‘I Wish to Hell They’d Turn This Mic Up’

By Jon Street | November 5, 2012 | 10:30am EST

( - Vice President Joe Biden – trying to make a political point at a campaign rally in Pueblo, Colorado on Saturday – was momentarily frustrated by a microphone that he apparently thought was malfunctioning.

Speaking about the challenges facing the middle class, Biden interrupted himself: “They have been crushed by the -- I wish to hell they'd turn this mic up! -- they've been crushed -- middle class people.”

The microphone was working, and the crowd heard Biden just fine, prompting him to quip: “I'm gonna hear a press report: Biden screamed at the audience."

Biden’s numerous gaffes on the campaign trail have provided some of the lighter moments of the bitterly fought campaign 2012.
