Joe Biden: There isn't a Republican party
Somebody finally said it out loud, very clearly for all the world to hear. I've been thinking this for weeks. Thank you, Joe Biden.
The Vice President said “there isn't a Republican Party. I wish there were.”

"I wish there was one person you could sit across the table from and make a deal," he continued, referring to the competing factions of the GOP.

Joe Biden: There isn't a Republican party

I wish there was too because for our democracy to work effectively, we do need two political parties. What we have is one Party and one fractured mess. What this means for the upcoming mid-term elections is yet to be seen.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
