Joe Biden: Repubicans Are Standing in Way of Change – “It’s Time to Fight Back!”
Joe Biden blamed the nation’s problems on Republicans, who have been out of power since 2008, during his campaign stop in Florida.
The Orlando Sentinel reported:
Vice President Joe Biden turned a dinner speech to Florida Democrats at Walt Disney World into a pep rally Friday night, blasting Republicans as obstructionists with whom he said the administration can no longer work.
Biden knocked Republicans for blocking President Obama’s American Jobs Act, for “playing roulette” with the federal deficit ceiling and standing in the way of other Obama initiatives, from Wall Street reform to health-care reform to the end of the Iraq occupation.
Biden said he and Obama tried for 2 1/2 years to sit down with Republicans and now he concludes, “This is not your father’s Republican Party.”
“It’s time to stand up. It’s time to fight back,” Biden bellowed to a cheering crowd of more than 1,000 people at the Florida Democratic Party annual convention at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. “We are looking for this fight.”
Democrats are upset that Republicans won’t let them pass another half-trillion dollar failed stimulus.
