Posted on 04/01/2012 10:00:21 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Vice President Joe Biden emphasized the stark changes he believes have changed politics Sunday, saying that the GOP had become unrecognizable from the party he once knew.
This is not your fathers Republican party. This is a different party than Im used to, Biden said CBSs on Face the Nation.
Biden said the Republican electorate has changed, forcing their partys leaders and lawmakers further to the right.
The vice president pointed to many newer members of Congress, saying they had blocked efforts to work with Democrats. Even though the idea of compromise is alive and well in Congress the minority of the Republican party control[s] Congress, [so] there is no room for compromise, said Biden.

What color are the clouds on Joe’s planet???
The idiot thinks that was something brilliant and profound to say.
This isn’t my daddy’s America either Rimshot! You commie ‘RATS have turned Americans against each other. We are no longer united as a country. You bass turds!
Biden should look at his own party, past leaders like JFK and Hubert Humphrey would be appalled by what their party has become. We have George McGovern to blame for starting the far leftward lurch of the Democrats, though the antecedents of the party of big government started with Woodrow Wilson and FDR. The GOP unfortunately is divided too. There is the party of conservative values espoused by Reagan and the Tea Party and then there is the so called “moderate” GOP of Romney and McCain which is little more than a lite version of the Democrats.
Certaintly not my father’s democrat party.
Democratic Party is filled with neanderthals ... and, yes, I know some of them are highly educated but they lack common sense.
With all due respect, Mr. VP -—— What you represent is NOT the Democratic Party we all knew of yore. But of course, “There’s some so blind as those who will not see.”
But I guess you are just following the ‘talking points’ you were given.
My father's democrats were also the party of both liberals and blue dogs. Today's democrats are the union leadership, inner city minorities, academia, Hollywood, and George Soros. They don't care about working families anymore. It's now the party of abortion, eugenics, handouts, dependency, and control.
There seems to be a liberal bent to the repub elites but the dems are all socialist, marxist communists and seem to be proud of it.
And it sure isn't your father's democrat party either. These Marxist bastards are burying America...deep!!
To this idiot, “comprimise” means give the left everything it wants.
No, it’s not my father’s Republican Party. That party would have been actually opposing you all along, and they never would have choosen the “let’s just get along” wimp boehner as their “leader” in the House.
BTW, FU Biden.
Oh so NOW the Rats love Reagan.
Question is Joe, how much further to the left can the Democratic Party go before it implodes from the weight and hot air of radicals. It has always been the party on the wrong side of right, for racism, segregation, white supremacy, the black plantation, race baiting, welfarism, Socialism, militancy, slaughtering humans, not to mention demagoguery, rabble rousing, corruption and despotism. And with the Joe and Obama routine, we can add idiocy and gross incompetence. Meanwhile, there is truth behind Joe’s ignorant rumblings, conservatives are pushing the Republican Party back to the principles of the founders, the real Fathers deserving of our attention.
Because poll after poll shows that the Democrats are viewed as “too liberal” far more than the Republicans being “too conservative.”
Shut up Biden!
here we go with the ‘do nothing congress’ speel again - except of course it’s all hard-working dems against those slovenly ‘new’ republicans
“My father’s” Republican Party was one that won the presidency and once in a while the Senate, but never thought it could win the House. Thank goodness this isn’t my father’s Republican Party.
What needs to be realized is that compromise and accomodation are both forms of moral dishonesty.
“The word ‘bi-partisan’ means that some larger-than-usual deception is being carried out.” - George Carlin
Biden is right but not in the way he thinks. My fathers republican party talked about the evils of socialism, abortion, homosexuality, and being faithful in your marriage.
Now these things get you ridiculed by some even on FR.
pot...kettle.... you know.
My father’s democrat party included Hubert Humphrey who would not be allowed into the democrat party of today
When freedom is at stake, YES!!!
Remembering the past I remember a time when none of the present Department heads nor the President would pass the nation’s security clearance for their respective positions. Considering that most of those appointed under them are even more radical.
