Joe Biden: 'We Could Lose' Congress to More Candidates Like Ted Cruz
Breitbart ^ | 30 Mar 2014 | Tony Lee

Posted on 03/30/2014 5:51:34 PM PDT by mandaladon

In another sign that Democrats are worried that the 2014 midterm elections may resemble the 2010 midterms in which the Tea Party movement gave the GOP historic gains, Vice President Joe Biden sent out a fundraising email Sunday imploring Democrats to donate to prevent more conservatives like Ted Cruz from getting elected.

Biden and Cruz (R-TX) may be rivals for the presidency in 2016, and Biden's email on behalf of the Democratic National Committee a day before the end of the fundraising quarter warned supporters, "We could lose."

“Losing will mean more senators like Ted Cruz, and more Tea Party Republicans in the House,” he writes in the email.

Claiming that he is not engaging in hyperbole, Biden urges supporters to chip in $3 before the fundraising deadline to help Democrats because "the deadline tomorrow is among the most important."

"If we wake up on Tuesday and find out we came up short, we're in bad shape for November – that is not hyperbole," Biden writes.

Joe may be stupid...but he isn’t crazy. At least not too much so.

Hint: means to apply more pressure. Don’t take the bait and relax.

Liberals continually project. In this case it's Occupy that is dead, the Tea Party is alive and kicking

The establishment GOP is more frightened/hostile against the TEA Party candidates than any democrat.

I crossed that up with a story I was reading about Harry. But he is saying the same thing now. The tea party is coming, the tea party is coming send money right now.....

But for the last few months he has been trying to convince everyone that the Tea Party is dead.

Be still my heart. If only that would come true.

I was tthinking today that Cruz is an inspiration every time he opens his mouth. Think what a gift it would be if every one of our Presidential candidates could articulate a message like Cruz. We haven’t had an orator for a candidate since Reagan!

Wonder if Cruz will ask him if it’s okay if he calls him Joe? Shades of Biden vs. Palin.

Old Joe’s just drumming up campaign contributions from the Rat base. Cruz’s name has the same effect on young socialists as Reid’s, Boxer’s or Pelosi’s do on us.

““Losing will mean more senators like Ted Cruz,”

Ohhh, and wouldn’t that be too bad. NOT.

Go Ted Cruz and any and all like you! (Can we clone him?)

” - - - if Republicans take back control of Congress, the battle between Tea Party conservatives and the Republican establishment may intensify, as the grassroots conservatives who provided the votes will demand more conservative policy solutions from Republicans in Washington. - - - “

Yup.
