Republicans Blasted by Biden (Video Linked)

The most shocking thing about the Republican convention this week wasn't what you heard, but what you didn't hear.

That's what vice presidential nominee Joe Biden told a crowd in Pennsylvania during a fiery speech on Friday. Joe explained why John McCain, Sarah Palin, and their Republican surrogates chose to make the convention an issue-free zone and replace a serious conversation with attack after attack.

Joe's speech is a must-see. Watch his blistering response to the Republicans' empty attacks and make sure to pass it on to your family and friends.

The platform adopted by the Republican Party this year is the most extreme in recent history. They didn't talk about it very much, and it's easy to see why. Here's what you might have missed:

A constitutional amendment banning all abortions -- regardless of rape, incest, or the mother's health

Another amendment banning same-sex marriage

Language restricting embryonic stem cell research and opposing action on climate change

Absolutely nothing about Equal Pay for Equal Work

The destruction of American jobs due to outsourcing, or closing rampant corporate tax loopholes

It's no surprise that McCain and his party spent so little time talking about the issues -- they have no issues to run on.

Republicans are hoping they can avoid talking about their failed policies of the past eight years, and how they have no plans but to bring you just more of the same.

But it's our job, with Joe Biden on our side, to make sure they don't get away with it.

Watch this clip of Joe exposing the Republicans and share it with everyone you know:
