Biden says Democrats will 'shock' everyone in midterms (".. losses are(n't) going to be bad at all")
AFP on Yahoo ^ | 7/18/10 | Alex Ogle

Posted on 07/18/2010 9:42:04 AM PDT by NormsRevenge

WASHINGTON (AFP) – Vice President Joe Biden brushed aside suggestions on Sunday that Democrats will suffer big losses in November midterm elections, vowing that Barack Obama's governing party will "shock the heck out of everybody."

Speaking on the ABC News program "This Week," Biden dismissed prevailing wisdom that Democrats, 17 months into Obama's transformative residency in the White House, would suffer a drubbing at the hands of salivating Republicans.

"I don't think the losses are going to be bad at all," Biden said. "I think we're going to shock the heck out of everybody."

Biden said he was "confident when people take a look at what has happened since we've taken office in November and comparing it to the alternative, we're going to be in great shape."

The vice president said he believes the Obama administration will get credit from voters for helping guide the economy out of recession and passing key legislation on health care and financial reform.

"It's just going to take time," Biden said.

"The election is not until November. And I think we're going to have to firmly make our case."

Obama has launched into campaign mode in recent weeks, hoping to transform the spectacular grassroots support from Democrats and independent voters which propelled him to the presidency in 2008 into a full-bodied platform for his party in the upcoming congressional races.

It would have been better for him to say that they would “literally” shock the heck out of everybody. I’m still waiting to see that literal drop kick.

“It scares me how little we’ve heard about them this year.”

That same thought has been hovering about my brain the past month or so. Wondering what ARE they up to? Wondering what brand name they will be when they emerge again in full force.

A quandry. They are dangerous.

I agree with Biden on this one.

Those who believe that the Republicans will make great gains expect the elections will be fair and that the voters will be more enlightened than they were in 2006 and 2008. Neither will be the case.

There will be massive voter fraud and intimidation, particurlarily in the big cities.

The Democrats will add and run on the slogan,”The Republicans want to cut off your unemployment benefits” along with the tried and true,”The Republicans will do away with Social Security”. Along with the other freebies that they will promise.

And once again, it will work.

And o

Seriously, do you believe that? How long will they be “boiling over” do you think? Longer than after the death care bill that was crammed through with bribes, lies, cheating, etc.? Or finance the reform bill where there was barely a peep and most Americans and probably 99% of Odumbas* voters don’t have a clue there is such a bill or what’s in it? I’m sorry, I have very little hope lately.

We should call it the Voter Rebellion 2010. That's what it should be anyway.

It might serve to coalesce voters around a central theme - rebelling against government destruction of our rights.
