After two days off the trail, Joe Biden ventured back out on Sunday afternoon, driving home the “Republicans just don't get it” label the Obama campaign is trying to saddle John McCain and Sarah Palin with to portray them as out of touch.

“What I want to tell you is this: John was [in 2000] and is now and has been dead wrong,” Biden said in a high school gym in Charlotte. “Dead wrong about what we should do as a nation. It doesn’t mean we can’t be friends, he’s just dead wrong. John just doesn’t get it.”

As Obama has in the last few days, Biden brought up McCain’s comments at a forum on service in New York last week when the Arizona senator said in Washington it’s easy to be “divorced” from everyday challenges.

“Yo!” Biden exclaimed, “I couldn’t have put it better myself. The McCain ticket seems divorced from the economic realities facing average American families.”
