Biden: Freshman Sens. Cruz, Paul in control of Republican Party
The Hill ^ | June 15, 2013 | Ben Goad

Posted on 06/15/2013 9:02:03 AM PDT by maggief

EXCERPT

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."

(snip)

"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."

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?

With the NSA info, it should be no problem for them to swing several House and Senate races.

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.

As usual Lunchbucket Joe has it completely ass-backwards.

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.

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.

JoJo didn’t make a similar crack when the commies took control of the Democratic Party, I’ll wager.
