Cheerleader VP Joe Biden States, “The Reports of the Death of the Democratic Party have been Greatly Exaggerated”
Hey Joe and the Democrats … It’s the ECONOMY stupid!
Vice President and head Democrat cheerleader Joe Biden said on Friday to his fellow Democrats at the Democratic National Committee gathering at Union Station in St. Louis, MO that, ” the death of the Democratic Party have been greatly exaggerated.” Biden claimed that the day after the 2010 midterm elections that Democrats would still control the US House and Senate. Biden also stated, “If it weren’t illegal, I’d make book on it.”
What do you expect me to say … “I don’t think he [Obama] is ready and the Presidency is something that lends itself to on the job training”.
Wanna bet Joe? But then again, what is Biden going to tell Democrats, the truth? Biden certainly is not going to ask Democrats to look at the Congressional Generic Ballot polls and tell them that they are a record 12 points behind Republicans. Hey Joe, have you taken a look at your old Senate seat in Delaware lately, Republican Mike Castle is up 49% to 37% over Democrat Chris Coons. I guess Democrats are also supposed to disregard all of the polls as well. The polls that are a reflection of the American voter.
Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. admonished Democrats on Friday to shake away their pessimism about the fall elections, arguing that the prospect of historic losses would be minimized because the Republican Party has been overtaken by extreme candidates and stale ideas.
Hmm, Biden claims Republicans have been taken over by extremists. Maybe Biden would like to take a good look at some real extremists? So is the American voting public extremists too who are against Obamacare, out fo control spending and the manner in how Obama and the Democrats controlled Congress have handled the economy?
“The reports of the death of the Democratic Party have been greatly exaggerated,”Mr. Biden said, paraphrasing Mark Twain as he addressed party leaders here. “The day after the election, there will be a Democratic majority in the House and a Democratic majority in the Senate. If it weren’t illegal, I’d make book on it.”
As the Democratic National Committee gathered for its summer meeting at Union Station in St. Louis, anxiety marked a stark change for a party that had reveled in back-to-back election cycles that produced control of Congress and the White House. Democrats acknowledged the difficult political climate, but they said that their candidates could benefit from Republican shortcomings.
As No Quarter reminds us, professional political predictor extraordinaire Charlie Cook has Democrats loosing at least 35 to 45 seats in the US House of Representatives. All signs point to a GOP take over of the House and Democrats are not just going to lose seats because that is what happens to the party in control in an off year election. This is historic as never has a Party in control of the Presidency, House and Senate so defied the will of the people. The only reason why Democrats might retain the US Senate is to win 10 seats is unheard of and EPIC. Look for Republicans to also gain a majority of the Governorships in 2010.
