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.

Hes biden ever been right about anything?
“Cause we’ve got some new methods of cheating our way to victory.”
Joe can’t rock the boat, just yet.
Joe wants to pay off his $219,000 campaign finance FINE first!
This country is going to be boiling over if it turns out the elections got rigged.
So is your son planning another run for national office, Joe?
I was just thinking that.
Because the votes have already been counted.
That’s not what Gibbs said last week. I’m sure Gibbs is more in the loop than Biden.
Exactly. That's why this is very good news.
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.
He’s always wrong so this is good!
He’s just trying to sooth the fears of dem contributors. Recovery Summer is going to bail the dems out.
“Obama has launched into campaign mode in recent weeks,...”
Obama has never quit “campaign mode”. That is all he is, “campaign mode”.... he has nothing else.
He’s the wrongest man you could ever meet.
That is a fighting statement but I have been worried since he became VP with that commie Obama.
They must have some “shocking” October surprise coming.
Will the poll watchers will be a factor?
I fear you are right...
Biden “These hemorrhoids aint so bad once you get used to em”
bought off elections, fraud and illegals will save the day
Biden the fool must never get beyond the DC beltway if he believes that the Democrooks “have guided us out of the recession”.
Like a pack of piranha, ACORN is still out there.
It scares me how little we’ve heard about them this year.
that would have been a funny follow up question. So Vice-President “bite me” what exactly have you been correct on over your 40 years of spunging off the taxpayers
Wonder how long he practiced in the mirror to get that stare down. Needs more work.
Headline April 23, 2010:
Biden Sees Economy Creating 500,000 Jobs a Month Soon
Joe Biden fresh from his morning hit of Kool-aid...Biden’s on a sinking ship an he knows it he got a guaranteed check for life and he knows there is two years left on his expiration date when he will out of public office forever...
The only way, Sir, that your Party will win in November is if there is massive fraud. Your Regime is on the verge of destroying the Nation.
“It scares me how little weve 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.
Let Biden keep it up....if dems think this is wrapped up for them why go to the polls to vote...then again maybe this administration needs the republicans to win...for multi reasons.
Already there, Asshole
You've made your case Joe. That's why y'all are finished!
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.
I'd imagine Mom is so very proud.......
I predict that we will hear much more from King Shabazz in the future.....crackers beware....he has made his intentions clear.
Thug Nation Rules apply these days.
AG Holder and the WH concur.

Biden: GOP forced undersized stimulus
We already know that ACORN (or whatever its new name is) is receiving $11 Billion ($11,000,000,000) from Obama to use fraud to win. How are we prepared to deal with that?
Absolutely nothing wrong or racist about killing white babies because they are.....ummmm...white.
now that is an n word if i ever saw one
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.
Biden is an idiot.
Sit back and watch them do it again
And here is how they will do it.....
Democrat voting rolls (I am not joking, they use these tactics):
“We’re gonna cheat, more dead people will vote than ever, and if that doesn’t work, we’ll orchestrate a national emergency and declare martial law.”
As a rule of thumb, consider the election rigged each time a Democrat wins.
Has our side Country boiled over yet?
It might serve to coalesce voters around a central theme - rebelling against government destruction of our rights.
...vowing that Barack Obama's governing party will "shock the heck out of everybody."They just did. ;') It's pretty much a daily phenomenon, or more. Thanks NormsRevenge.
In a Rodney King-y sort of way. Only without cops or nightsticks.
