Biden: Hey left-wingers, how about you STFU?
At a fundraiser in Manchester, NH, today, Vice President Biden urged Democrats to “remind our base constituency to stop whining and get out there and look at the alternatives. This President has done an incredible job. He’s kept his promises.”
The remarks, made to roughly 200 top Democratic activists and donors, recall comments President Obama made last week to “griping and groaning Democrats…Folks: wake up. This is not some academic exercise. As Joe Biden put it, Don’t compare us to the Almighty, compare us to the alternative.”
Joe Biden lives in his own alternate reality (see his comments re: “Recovery Summer”, stimulus, the 2010 midterms, etc.)
What’s hysterical and sad at the same time is that you have some serious, legitimate liberal bloggers and activists who have to sit and watch as the vice-president they helped get elected essentially kick them in the groin on the campaign trail just for being demanding liberals.
The strange thing is that as most moderate Democrats are running as fast as they can from the Obama/Pelosi/Reid junta, Biden is insisting that “the base” come back to them in order to win. Talk about a paradox.
