Biden fights poor acoustics in Colorado

PUEBLO, Colo. -- It's rare that an audience asks the famously audible Joe Biden to speak up.

But with the acoustics in Pueblo's Central High School gymnasium leaving many of the thousand attendees at his Saturday afternoon rally unable to hear him, they did.

"I wish to hell they'd turn this mic up!" an annoyed Biden declared loudly upon hearing their pleas for more volume.

Biden, who is known to read media coverage of his slip-ups and frequently notes in front of audiences that he "got in trouble" with the press for mistakes,  joked about the kind of headlines that the sound situation could garner as he belted out the remainder of his remarks.

"I'm going to hear a press report," he said as the audience giggled at his imagined headline. "'Biden screamed at the audience.'"
