Just moments ago, TheBlaze published a story poking fun at Vice President Joe Biden for mistakenly referring to Iran when addressing the U.S.’ recent theaters of war.

But it looks like Biden has struck again. The vice president had greater things to say during his campaign stop in Las Vegas.

“I don’t understand how they believe, and they do believe: Ryan has written a book called The Young Guns with two other fellows, members of the House,” said Biden. “No, these are the Republican leaders in the House … Unfortunately, the bullets are aimed at you.”

Really? Rep. Ryan and “two other fellows” are aiming bullets at Americans?

Shortly after making these demagogic remarks, Rep. Ryan’s office issued the following statement:

Today’s over-the-top rhetoric by Vice President Biden is disappointing, but not all that surprising.  In the absence of a vision or plan to move the country forward, the Vice President is left only with ugly political attacks beneath the dignity of the office he occupies.  Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will bring serious leadership to Washington that will focus on an agenda of job creation and economic growth that benefits all Americans
