In Chicago and Las Vegas, Vice President Joe Biden took juvenile jabs at Republicans in an attempt to lure union members’ votes and convince them that the one thing “you should not have any doubt about is that Barack Obama, he is on your side,” said Biden. “He will, and I will, and … we will fight alongside of you.”
During speeches to both groups, Biden used the GOP as a scapegoat for the country’s problems and characterized the Grand Old Party as calculating and sinister by using terms such as “organized efforts,” “scams,” “the most direct assault on labor,” “rejecting good faith efforts” and insinuating that Republicans don’t “fundamentally believe in education.”
“There is an organized effort to place blame for budget shortfalls on educators and other public workers. It is one of the biggest scams in modern American history,” said the VP in a hostile, anti-Republican tirade today at the National Education Association’s delegates assembly in Chicago.
“The new Republican Party has undertaken the most direct assault on labor, not just in my lifetime … but literally since the 1920s,” he said in the address at McCormick Place. “This is not your father’s Republican Party. This is a different breed of cat.”
Let’s define this “new Republican Party” that VP Biden is denouncing. Do you remember the November 2010 mid-term elections? These elections drove angry and dissatisfied voters to the polls, and the outcome was a devastating ouster of Democrat incumbents while electing a new Republican majority in Congress, adding new Republican seats in the Senate, new Republican Governors and Republican State Legislatures across the nation.
Without a doubt, last November one heard, loud and unequivocal, the Voice of the People … Meow.
Biden’s “new Republican Party” – it’s comprised of American voters and the officials they elected and charged with putting a stop to the Obama/Biden free-spending, anti-capitalist agenda. In other words, Mr. Biden, you’re insulting Americans in your speeches, not politicians or a political party … Americans who are unemployed, unable to buy or sell their homes, start businesses and are fearful that your administration’s future plans are not in our best interests.
Go ahead – denounce this new breed of cat, Mr. Biden; but remember that this kitty has claws – which it demonstrated on November 2, 2010 and will un-sheath again in November 2012.
Last Friday, July 1, Mr. Biden continued to vilify conservatives in an effort to gain Teamsters’ support for the Obama/Biden 2012 campaign. Citing the administration’s pro-union policies, he portrayed his political opposition as “arrogant and elitist,” continuing with this schoolyard-worthy slur:
“Your logo is the horse’s head,” he told the Teamsters. “Their [the GOP] logo should be the other end.”
Well, we’re rubber and you’re glue, Mr. Vice President.
“They [Republicans] think you don’t even know what’s in your best interests. They’ve convinced themselves they know best. You’re the only thing that stands between the barbarians at the gate and them taking over,” the vice president said. (emphasis mine)
Barbarians? While our lawmakers are taking a strong stance against driving our country into deeper debt, to the best of my knowledge, they aren’t publically bragging that doing so is a “big f-ing deal.” Apparently, only civilized officials use gloating profanities after forcing ObamaCare upon us – that unwanted, bureaucratic behemoth.
By the way, those lawmakers that you not-so-glibly insult are acting on the People’s mandate. The People made it clear to our newly-elected representatives: we voted you in, and we can vote you out. We are watching our new lawmakers and leaders as closely as we watch your administration – and they know it.
The VP was in Las Vegas on Friday speaking to thousands of members of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters at their annual convention. He said his speech wasn’t supposed to be political, but, nevertheless warned, “Don’t come to me if you (vote Republican). You’re on your own, Jack.”
Don’t worry, Jack – you and Jill are welcome to join the new breed of Republicans, Conservatives, Tea Party members, Independents and other unhappy Americans and help support the restoration of America in 2012.
