Biden needs to start channeling his spirit of 2012
Vice President Joe Biden's gaffe of the day
“[G]oing into 2016, the Republicans have to make a decision whether they’re in control or not in control,” the vice president told Gloria Borger. “Are they going to begin to allow things to happen? Or are they going to continue to be obstructionists? And I think they’re going to choose to get things done.”
Congressional Republicans will "choose to get things done"? Please, pass me a hit of whatever is in that pipe, Mr. Vice President. And lest there be any doubt that he's dreaming, listen to Ted Cruz outline his agenda
Piggybacking on what House leaders have done, Cruz said the first order of business should be a series of hearings on President Obama, “looking at the abuse of power, the executive abuse, the regulatory abuse, the lawlessness that sadly has pervaded this administration.”
Cruz also would like the Senate to be as aggressive in trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act as the House, which has voted more than 50 times to get rid of the law.
Republicans should “pursue every means possible to repeal Obamacare,” Cruz said, including forcing a vote through parliamentary procedures that would get around a possible filibuster by Democrats. If that leads to a veto by Obama, Cruz said, Republicans should then vote on provisions of the health law “one at a time.”
Now, I suppose Biden could be right if the GOP undergoes a complete transformation and treats Cruz like an outcast instead of like a spiritual leader, but that's not a bet I'm willing to take—and neither should he.
