(Newser) – Joe Biden, long known for his propensity for sticking his foot in, among other things, his own mouth, had another less-than-diplomatic moment today. Speaking in New Hampshire, the vice president said his party's faithful should get over their beef with the Obama White House's performance, and start pounding the pavement. Biden said he wants to "remind our base constituency to stop whining and get out there and look at the alternatives. This president has done an incredible job. He’s kept his promises."

Those hanging in the lefty fringe howled in response, reports Politico. “It’s idiotic is what it is,” says the Daily Kos' Markos Moulitsas. “If Democrats had delivered on what they had promised, and if people had jobs, no one would be whining. Instead of making the case as to why they would do if they are reelected, they are insulting people."
