With nine months to go until Election Day, Vice President Joe Biden is trying to spur on Democrats by declaring that “there isn’t a Republican party” because groups are too splintered and divided. Although Obama’s approval rating continues to remain at abysmal numbers and all signs point to Democrats losing control of Congress by the end of the year, Biden seemed almost delusional in his belief that all was right amongst liberals.
“There isn’t a Republican party. I wish there were, I wish there was a Republican party. I wish there was one person we could sit across the table from and make a deal and make the compromise and know when you got up from the table that the deal was done,” said Biden at the House Democratic policy conference. “All you had to do was look at their response to the State of the Union, what were there, three or four? I think we should get a little focused here.”
But despite almost universal disapproval of Obamacare and other policies under the current administration, Biden seemed convinced they were creating policies that everyone wanted. “Between now and November is three political lifetimes. The American people are where we are,” he said. “Let’s go out and make every single effort not just to defend, but to aggressively push our agenda. They are with us.”
Unfortunately for Biden, he could be in for a rude awakening come November. A recent Fox News poll showed that more than 60 percent of swing voters disapproved of “Barack Obama going around Congress and using executive orders,” felt that his policies created a bigger wealth gap between the rich and the poor, and that the government was currently providing too many services to people.
