Skip to comments.Biden: Freshman Sens. Cruz, Paul in control of Republican Party
Posted on 06/15/2013 9:02:03 AM PDT by maggief
Biden called Cruz (R-Texas) and Paul (R-Ky.) bright new guys, but said they had views he had never before seen in Congress.
"They are the ones that control the Republican party right now, literally," he said. "I've never seen a time in all the years I was in the Senate that two freshmen have so much impact on the entirety of the Republican party."
"This is not your father's Republican party, it's fundamentally different," Biden told the crowd. "There's no one with whom to deal with and there's no one in charge anymore." He expressed optimism that Democrats could hold onto the Senate next year and pick up the 17 seats needed to wrest control of the House away from Republicans, whose conservative views, he said, are out of touch with the country.
"America has moved on, well beyond where these guys are," Biden said about the GOP. "If we keep the Senate and change 17 votes in the House, it'll be fundamentally different."

I wish that were true.
Biden’s fantasies on full display. If only it were true.......
Haha. We wish.
First, you were in the Senate too long anyway and secondly, Does the name Obama , a rather successful half term senator, mean anything to you?
There’s no one with whom to deal with.
It’s a good thing some people don’t take a bribe the good old boy club is changing.
With the NSA info, it should be no problem for them to swing several House and Senate races.
As opposed to the senile old bat who is the Senate Majority Leader.
Stockholm Syndrome manifestation of underlying Cruz Derangement Syndrome?
There are only two Senate Republicans according to the MSM: McInsane and Goober Pyle.
Obama? “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,”
This is good, isn’t it? When Obama is doing his African thing, Biden’s in charge. Perhaps he’ll be more open to listening to Cruz and Paul than Obama and McCain are.
From Joe’s lips to Gods ears. If that were true, the Constitution might have a chance to be restored.
From your lips to God’s ears, you old wind bag. America should be so blessed.
Cruz and to a lesser extent Paul have much more in common with senators from 200 years ago than do the communists currently in power on the Hill.
We wish plugs... we wish!
joe... you need to ask the surgeon that operated on your brain in 1988 to give it back to you.
Some one better let Jeb Bush know that Ted is in control of the party. LOL
Until they side up with the gang of eight on illegal immigration, in which case it would be “inevitable” that they sell out, or are intimidated into compliance by their gop party masters.
Biden is such a delusional dufus.
As long as they don’t cave on core Principles.
That means “no amnesty” Rand. We mean it. Don’t go all wobbly on us now...
Like Rush says: they always tell you who they fear.
He meant it as an insult. He things lifers should be running the show just out of entitlement for being there 40 plus years.
No kidding! They should be!
And Biden was heard to say that “Everyone can’t be an out of control genius like me, ...hee hee, haw haw, oopsi daisy, crazy crazy.”
We’re only 17 House Seats away from becoming the new Soviet Union. It’s a wonder I can sleep at night.
That begs the question. Who’s in control of the Democrat party ? Certainly God doesn’t know. They booed Him !
Biden doesn’t know what day it is much less whats up with the GOP leadership.
I can only say Thank God and about time.............
Oh how I wish Ted Cruz was in control of the GOP....
This Democrat Party is ten times worse than the one my dad left!
JoJo didn’t make a similar crack when the commies took control of the Democratic Party, I’ll wager.
