According to a pool report from Tuesday's event in Dayton, Biden was telling the crowd that Democrats know how to balance the budget. He said, "If I hear one more Republican tell me about balancing the budget, I am going to strangle them."
He quickly added: "To the press, that's a figure of speech."
If I hear Joe Biden spout off one more time about “recovery summer” I’ll cut his tongue out.
To the Secret Service, that’s a figure of speech.
