And you thought all those Tea Party rallies and Town Hall protests were about Obamacare, exploding federal spending, earmark corruption, and saddling our children and grand children with a staggering national debt.
Well, let me set you straight on that one. Actually, Vice President Joe Biden did so earlier today on NBC's "Meet the Press," delivering this startling observation for moderator David Gregory:
"The key to turning things around is that having everyone understand the message of that election. We understand that the message is the American public wants us to cooperate -- wants us to work together. That's why if we get the START agreement, we will have -- this lame duck session, since the election -- heard the message and the Republicans will have heard the message: that they want us to reasonably compromise to move the business of the nation forward. As we just did on the economy, with regard to taxes and growth. As, God willing, we're gonna do on national security with regard to START. And I think that is the message of the election."
Yes, he really did say that.
So shouldn’t he take the hint and STOP?
cloture vote for START tuesday...possible final vote wednesday. RINOS lugar/snowe/collins/bennett most likely to vote with commies. Commies need 66 votes [one commie having surgery].
The Gaffe-O-Matic is a gift that never stops giving!
Well, unfortunately, we only got rid of 65 of your fellow RAT Representatives and 5 of your RAT Senators this time around. We'll achieve total cooperation next time around.
He has to be put in a home soon.
They lie about everything.
Gawd I wish he were President.
Laugh a minute would at least give us something to smile about every day.
joe biden - bho’s life insurance policy.
Probably plagiarized those comments too.
Biden, as usual, is delusional.
I don’t watch Meet The Professional Left but let me take a wild guess here and predict that David Gregory did not challenge Biden.
Judd Gregg is also voting in favor of START, called his office Friday to complain.
I appreciate that Veep Biden thinks the American public is so informed and aware and wonky that the elections were about START. But we could have every single voter a member of the tea party and that STILL would not be true.
If that is really the message of the election, then why not wait until those that were voted in by that election are seated before proceeding further.
I truly believe NEW START is benign PR stunt.
Passing it is not the end of the world IF Obama is NOT the POTUS and we actually have a POTUS that aggressively pursues missile defense.
As long as Obama is the POTUS, we won’t be seriously pursuing missle defense, and therefore New START is not a real hurdle.
Sure, conservatives can extract further concessions on nuclear matters from Obama in return for ratifying this ridiculous treaty. And, they should!
Having said that, the treaty MUST only be considered by the next Congress and NOT the lame duck one. For that reason, I am adamantly opposed to ratifying it in this Congress.
I like Juddd. But, if he is principled, he should vote the same way the seator elect from NH would in the new Congress. Or, defer to the new Congress.
Who is this - Biden - and why is he so stupid?
So, we should havenomissile defense.
And Star Wars will be given to.....???
have no missile
spacebar is sticky.
Biden’s a f**ing idiot. ‘Nuff said.
START is a Fraud!
Americans dont sign treaties that place us at a disadvantage!
1) START leaves Russia with a significant Nuclear advantage in terms of Warheads and missiles.
2) START makes verification of Russian compliance virtually impossible.
3) START allows Russia to veto ANY and ALL missile defense systems America might ever want to deploy.
These are Obamas objectives, NOT Americas objectives, and the Senate is right to defeat them!
Copy and send this to your Senators!
Joe Biden drinks heavily.
Somebody post the pictures from the last SNL of Biden. Hysterical!
