Barack Obama will not be happy with Joe Biden.
Biden spilled the beans on why Obama’s presidency ended in disaster.
And Joe Biden left Democrats’ jaws on the ground with one story about Barack Obama.
Joe Biden spoke to the congressional Democrats to deliver a pep talk about why it was so important Congress ram through his two-trillion-dollar bailout bill.
“[T]he economists told us we literally saved America from a depression,” Biden outrageously claimed.
Democrats paid a political price when the American people realized the bill was really a Democrat Party priority bonanza and Biden tried to rewrite history as to why the next year the Tea Party wave washed Nancy Pelosi out of power as the Republicans won 63 seats in the House of Representatives.
Biden claimed it was Barack Obama—who once delivered his acceptance speech in front of Greek columns—who was too shy to boast to the American people about how he supposedly saved the economy.
“[W]e didn’t adequately explain what we had done,” Biden explained. “Barack was so modest, he didn’t want to take, as he said, a ‘victory lap.’”
In Joe Biden’s fish story, he claimed he urged Obama to embark on a media and P.R. tour to sell the “achievement” of the stimulus bill.
But Biden claimed Obama—who once said his election would stop the rise of the oceans and heal the planet—was simply too modest to boast about all the good his signature piece of economic legislation did for the American people.
“I kept saying, ‘Tell people what we did,’” Biden added. “He said, ‘We don’t have time. I’m not going to take a victory lap.’ And we paid a price for it, ironically, for that humility.”
Democrats know the last time their party’s president asked them to pass a budget-busting spending bill they walked into a buzz saw the following November.
Biden had a ringside seat for that shellacking.
And so Biden did his best to convince Democrats this time would be different.
“I know parts of this — and everything else we seek to do — are not easy, but people are going to remember how we showed up in this moment, how we listened to them — to them — not special interests; to them — and how we took action,” Biden concluded.
But the reality is not something Democrats can just wish away.
Republicans need to win just six seats in the House to take back the majority.
The party out of power usually wins around 20 seats in a midterm election meaning if Republicans just perform average in the midterms they are likely to remove Nancy Pelosi from power.
