In a private meeting with black clergy members, Vice President Joe Biden found out that the meeting wasn’t so private after all. According to Politico on Wednesday, word has leaked that the vice president of the United States called the political Tea Party “crazy.” Americans are used to President Barack Obama pointing the finger of blame at Republicans for his alleged failures and low ratings which stand at 40 percent disapproval. But name-calling seems to be beneath the president. This is obviously not the case with Vice President Joe Biden.
Coming across as critically racist, Biden told the closed-door meeting with the black clergy in South Carolina on Tuesday that he is the only white boy on the east side of Wilmington. He made that comment as he reminisced about his past as a Delaware public defender. Then, the alleged “only white boy on the east side of Wilmington” decided to bash the Republicans. According to CNN report, the man just a heartbeat-away-from-the-president called the Tea Party “crazy.” The proof of the comments by Biden came as a detailed readout of Biden’s remarks which were given to CNN by a person who was in the room when Biden made his frank remarks.
Biden told his crowd, who he was encouraging to vote Democrat in the nearing midterm elections, “This is not your father’s Republican Party.” Biden, in his eternal effort to sound “contemporary,” said, “This is a different breed of cat, man!” He claimed that he was not making a moral judgment, but he said that they – the Republicans – have no judgment. According to the report, neither Joe Biden nor the White House would comment on the behind-the-scenes name-calling. Many beleive it is time for the White House to reel Biden back in and try to get through this midterm election without his alleged-help.
Biden was reportedly in South Carolina to support local Democrats in competitive races. The Vice President told the more than 100 religious workers that if the Republicans win again, we are going to get no consensus on anything for the next few years. Of course, there will likely be more political consensus if the Senate is controlled by the Republicans as the House is at this time.
As the election nears, polls indicate that the Republicans, for the most part, have this election wrapped up. On Wednesday, the New York Times reported that the Republicans have an overwhelming 73 percent chance of gaining a majority in the Senate and, of course, is overwhelmingly expected to maintain control of the House of Representatives.
