With them it’s a don’t do as I do ... they’re the ones who came out with “where’s the civility” - anyone who pays any attention to that idiot ..... Biden has shown himself an idiot so many times that people don’t pay attention to him anymore. And he’s second in line?????

IF Joe really believed Tea Partiers were terrorists, he’d surrender to ‘em. It’s what Dems do. :)

Amen!

...i don’t respect Biden, and frankly i don’t care what he thinks or says.
but, when our leaders tell us we are schizophrenic, and hobbits, and to “get our asses in line”, i do care.

all i want, is the debt reduced, so my children don’t spend their lives paying for our mistakes.
that’s all i care about. my children.

That is my worry too. Boehner’s spineless performance so far may make people rethink voting for Republicans last year.

Good point. But I think that it can also be said that it is clear we need MORE Tea Party Members.

The only terrorists in D.C are the lawmakers that are bombing our children and grandchildrens future.

Biden got his ‘plugs’ back when it was a relatively new procedure and the end result looked like rows of corn. I've always suspected that they drilled too deep and messed up some of his brain matter.

I’d rather the Chairman apologize for the Republican caucus in Washington betraying every principle and promise they made to the Tea Party right down to allowing time to read legislation before a vote.

Me too. It’s because the same people who caused trouble then, ie: counter culture, draft dodgers, and change- through-violence people are now in charge of Washington.

Priebus should confine himself to commenting on Republican matters. The GOP doesn’t have a clue what motivates Tea Partiers, and quite frankly the two have become mutually exclusive groups.

“Socialists”(Biden) KNOWs that 2012 could rein in a republican sweep... and this strikes terror in their heart..

The socialist dog could hit the end of his chain..
The federal government PIG.. could be eyed for bacon.. and Ham..
The federal one eyed behemoth could be blinded tripped and captured by the Lilliputians.. AND dismembered..

Many have forgotten Nov 2010... Nov. 2012 will be the main event..
The TpCaucus has been growing, growing, ANd growING.. since then..

Biden you are nothing but an old man completely out of touch with today's society. When Biden was a kid this phrase was common.

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.

Today's youths sing the following.

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but whips and chains excite me.

Good luck, Joe.

More like - what on earth are they thinking? Then too, all the hate coming out of the Democrat party. They read and see on it TV. They say the Democrats are acting like a bunch of kindergarten kids with the rhetoric they use. And the world sees it too.
