Did Republican Senators Really Tell Biden They're Afraid of Cruz and Rand Paul?
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 06/29/2013 9:12:56 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

If a Republican senator cast a vote out of craven political cowardice, do you really think he'd admit that to Joe Biden?

That's what the Veep wants us to believe. In a Dem fundraising email from Bident that just turned up in my inbox, Biden wrote [emphasis added]: "When I asked several Republican senators after they voted against background checks, not one offered an explanation on the merits of why they couldn't vote for them. But almost to a person, they said, "I don't want to take on Ted Cruz. I don't want to take on Rand Paul. They'll be in my district."

They should be.

Nothing like a politician who hasn’t totally sold out or isn’t totally corrupt to make the rest of ‘em look bad!

Joe Biden isn’t qualified to sell used cars . . . he should sell hair plugs.

The long knives will come out for Cruz. But, you know what? He really doesn’t give a flip. That’s why he’s there.

They better worry about the voters who agree with Cruz and Paul.

Damn skippy these two will be in their districts......hopefully as the GOP presidential ticket.

It’s the PRIMARIES where this can be corrected.

That's the beauty of Ted Cruz. He really doesn't care if he gets attacked by the left. In fact, I think he rather enjoys the opportunity to shred their vicious screed with Constitutionally based arguments. The Happy Warrior. :~)

C'mon Joe, how about naming some names?

If not, we'll be more than happy to name those Senators for you. It would be a great question to ask during debates.

I actually find myself with some hope this time around (2016). We have Sarah, Cruz, and Paul as early contenders to choose from. Either one of those three would get my support.

If this windbags lips are moving, he’s lying. But if there are some RINOs who are afraid of Sen. Cruz and Sen. Paul....GOOD!

Obama sends “Uncle Joe” out again to gird low information zombies’ loins against the three entities he fears the most- Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz and The Tea Party.

there’s no reason to get excited about ‘16 unless something is done about voter fraud, and I don’t see anything happening to stop it.

Biden is inept as a liar, just like he is at everything else he does.

Pluggs has a shotgun....Plugs SAYS he has a shotgun. Somehow I can’t imagine him taking the recoil from anything more than a .410 and that would knock him on his ass.

Anyone believe Joe?

ABSOLUTE YES !! There's no question that constitutional conservatives aren't voting "republican" any more. We're only voting for candidates who support our values.

If they traitor us, they're being primaried.

Why not? With the exception of a few, DC is one big fraternity.

Joey, aka shotgun joe, biden’s brain is still healing from those two surgeries.

While I have never read this, I am pretty sure judging from his behavior, that the surgery was two frontal lobotomies.
