Biden Blames Tea Party Republicans For Not Passing Jobs Bill- "Going To Go Over Their Heads"



During a speech at the University of Pennsylvania Vice President Joe Biden blamed the Tea Party Republicans for not passing Obama's Jobs Bill when he said(beings around the 3:30 mark):

"Most of the mainstream folks in that other outfit know we have to do something. But this is not your father's Republican party. This is a different deal. If we were able to deal with just the leadership, we would have a deal, from the budget to this, a long time ago. But in fairness to the Republican leadership, they have trouble selling this to this new group of Congressman and Senators they have, they're not bad guys, they just have a very different value set than we do."

He then goes on the say that President Obama and himself are trying to go "Over the heads of those who don't want to compromise on anything."

Isn't it nice to see a Vice President admit he wants to go over the heads of the elected Representatives of the People just because they don't want something he does?

What country am I in anyway, Venezuela?

But what he's also saying is that the Dems could count on the "old" Repubs (moderates or country clubbers) to give them what they want. Yeah those good old Repubs. We just tell them what we want and they go right along with it. Guess the Dems still haven't figured out they lost last November!
