Joe Biden: Republicans are scared of Rand Paul!Submitted by ron_paul_is_awesome on Wed, 06/12/2013 - 02:05
Roll Call quotes Joe Biden speaking at a fundraiser in Washington Tuesday night:
“I’m not talking about the character or even the quality of the minds of the people I’m going to mention. But the last thing in the world we need now is someone who will go down to the United States Senate and support Ted Cruz, support the new senator from Kentucky — or the old senator from Kentucky,” Biden said, according to a pool report of the event.
“Have you ever seen a time when two freshman senators are able to cower the bulk of the Republican Party in the Senate? That is not hyperbole,” Biden continued. “On the gun issue, I don’t care what your position is — I called 17 senators out, nine of whom were Republicans. Not one of (them) offered an explanation on the merits of why they couldn’t vote for the background check. But almost to a person, they said, ‘I don’t want to take on Ted Cruz. I don’t want to take on Rand Paul. They’ll be in my district.’
“I actually said, ‘Are you kidding? These are two freshman,’” Biden added. “This is a different party folks. They’re not bad guys, and they’re both very bright guys. And I’m not questioning their motive.”
Anyone that doesn't think Rand Paul is making a difference in Washington and in moving the Republican Party in his direction has no idea what they are talking about.
