Vice President Joe Biden spoke at a Democrat fundraiser yesterday and warned the audience that the Republican Party’s new leaders are Senators Rand Paul and Ted Cruz.
“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.” (Read More)
First of all, go see what the guy he’s trying to get elected to the Senate had to say about the federal budget.
Second of all, we should be so lucky as to have Paul and Cruz leading the GOP. Instead we have Mitch McConnell who allowed the Gang of Eight amnesty bill to proceed in the Senate, and John Boehner in the House who seems more concerned with not making President Obama look bad than doing the right thing. The only reason anyone in the Senate is afraid of Cruz and Paul is that they make the rest of them look bad.
