Biden: Agenda would come to 'screeching halt' under GOP

Biden: Agenda would come to 'screeching halt' under GOP By Michael O'Brien - 09/28/10 03:17 PM ET

Vice President Biden renewed his warning on Tuesday that the administration's agenda would come to a "screeching halt" if Republicans win control of Congress.

Biden said he was right to warn that the administration's work would be scuttled if the GOP manages to pick up enough seats in this fall's elections to win back the House, or possibly, the Senate.

"If these guys win, and I got in trouble for saying this early in the campaign," Biden explained at a rally at Penn State University, "if the Republicans take back the House and Senate, our entire agenda will come to a screeching halt."

"I was right then and I'm right now," the vice president added. "They're being straightforward about it; they're not hiding the ball."

The warning by Biden is meant to underscore the administration's efforts to turn out voters to protect the Democratic majorities in the House and Senate in November. He was in Happy Valley to urge the first-time and young voters who propelled President Obama into office in 2008 to turn out again for this fall's elections. Obama will make a similar argument later today at the University of Wisconsin at Madison.

Former President Bill Clinton made a similar warning to Democrats on Tuesday in a fundraising request for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), House Democrats' campaign arm.

"There's a simple reason why I am planning to spend the next five weeks crisscrossing the country, campaigning as hard as I can for House Democrats," wrote the former Democratic president. "Everything that you and I have fought for since 2006 is on the line."

A “screeching halt” isn’t what I want. We desperately need reverse and full throttle.

“if the Republicans take back the House and Senate, our entire agenda will come to a screeching halt.”

Can’t the GOP turn that into a giant billboard or get video of him saying it and use if for a commercial?

Joe just doesn’t get it does he? He really doesn’t.

I'm not seeing the downside here, Joe.

And it wouldn't come to a 'screeching halt' either. The appointment of doctrinaire leftists to the executive branch agencies would go on apace, as would most of the judicial nominations.

Obama will, if anything, nominate even more thoroughly left-wing communists to the federal bench, forcing ugly showdowns on every one, hoping to either stuff the courts or else have lots of empty seats on the bench to run on in 2012, part of his "blame gridlock on white Republicans" strategy.

Stupid Question: If, for some reason, there are only 40 Republican Senators during the Lame Duck Session, can they still stop cloture?

How about 39?

The GOP should put this on billboards across the country.

Exactly what does Biden think goal #1 of the tea party movement is?
