Uncle Joe is either skeered or stupid...

Biden Warns: GOP Led By Two Young Senators, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul
At a high-dollar fundraiser last night in Washington, D.C., Vice President Joe Biden warned his fellow Democrats about the Republicans. 

“It’s a pretty simple proposition: The United States of America, and the state of Massachusetts, does not need another Republican in the Senate,” Biden told the assembled donors, according to the press pool report. “I’m being straight about this. This is not your father’s Republican Party. It really is a fundamentally different party. There’s never been as much distance, at least since I’ve been alive, distance between where the mainstream of the Republican congressional party is and the Democratic Party is. It’s a chasm. It’s a gigantic chasm.”In particular, Biden shared his distrust of two young Republican senators, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul.“I’m not talking about the character or even the quality of the minds of the people I’m going to mention. But the last thing in the world we need now is someone who will go down to the United States Senate and support Ted Cruz, support the new senator from Kentucky -- or the old senator from Kentucky,” said Biden.

“Think about this. ... Have you ever seen a time when two freshman senators are able to cower the bulk of the Republican Party in the Senate? That is not hyperbole.”

“On the gun issue, I don’t care what your position is -- I called 17 senators out, 9 of whom were Republicans. ... Not one of offered an explanation on the merits of why they couldn’t vote for the background check. But almost to a person, they said, ‘I don’t want to take on Ted Cruz. I don’t want to take on Rand Paul. They’ll be in my district.’

“I actually said, ‘Are you kidding? These are two freshman,’” Biden said, according to the pool report. “This is a different, party folks. They’re not bad guys, and they’re both very bright guys. And I’m not questioning their motive.” 


Ol' Uncle Joe puts his foot in his mouth once again. How much ya wanna bet that shows up in Rand Paul and Ted Cruz campaign ads showing how the Dems are afraid of them? Awesome! Thanks Uncle Joe, ya big dufus :) That was worth a million bucks!
Stay safe.

I don't get this whole "freshman" thing. Since these men are elected by the people shouldn't they all have equal status?

I suspect that there is a "pecking order" amongst the elites in our congress...

Freshman are probably thought of as 3/5 of a Senator or Congressman, or something like that, by the "Old Guard Elites".

Joe sure sounds stupid, dontcha think? :)

God forbid Cruz and Paul actually act according to the Constitution, it's such a foreign concept to Biden that he is dumbfounded.

I hate poliTICians, and I certainly don't think Cruz and Paul walk on water, but I do get a certain smug satisfaction watching them in action. If Cruz can get rid of the IRS, he'll have a good shot at being president....if we don't implode before then. ;)

If these two turn out to be DeceptiCons and sell us out(Ryan, Rubio, etc, etc, etcetcETCETC), then America is not only dead, but the corpse is being violated in a most heinous manner.

I want to believe they'll stay true to the Constitution, and be able to make a difference. Sadly, history does not encourage optimism in this regard.

Yet, we remain optimistic... At least a little bit optimistic.

Our Congressman Steve King is another guy to watch. He stirs the pot a bit and I agree with a lot that he says and does. Sadly, he isn't MY representative. The Liberals here in Iowa absolutely HATE him, which gives him a quite a bit of credibility with me, simply because of their hatred for him.

Sadly, my Representative is Bruce Braley. He does what the UAW tells him to do. Period. He is going to run in the Senatorial elections in 2014 to try to replace Tom Harkin. I hope he gets his ass kicked. He's about as worthless as teats on a boar hog.
