EPIC FAIL… Biden Sent Out to Bash Cantor— 140 Show Up!!
Ooohh… No, please… Not Joe Biden.
Team Obama sent out Big-Dog Joe Biden to Republican Whip Eric Cantor‘s district in Virginia to bash the Minority Whip for attacking Obama’s Stimulus bomb.
…140 supporters showed up.
The Washington Post reported:
Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) landed a fresh blow in a tit-for-tat battle with Vice President Biden today after the latter accused the senior Republican lawmaker of smearing the administration’s $787 billion stimulus package…
Without naming Cantor directly, the rhetorical assault is aimed squarely at the Richmond lawmaker, who has helped lead the Republican Party to its most effective message since Obama became president: that Obama’s stimulus bill has not produced jobs.
“To those who say that our economic decisions ‘have not produced jobs, have not produced and simply have not worked’ I say, take a look around,” Biden will say while visiting Cantor’s home district.
“I say, ‘Don’t let your opposition to the Recovery Act blind you to its results. Come see what I see everywhere I go: workers rehired, factories reopened, cops on the street, teachers in the classroom, progress toward getting our economy back on the move.'”
…Biden, for his part, is expected to take direct aim at that contention. “I ask those critics…. Would they not help the states prevent lay off thousands of teachers, firefighters, cops?” Biden will say in the remarks. “Would they not give a tax cut to 95 percent of the American people? Would they sit back and do nothing as our economy collapsed?”
Biden’s speech is part of a newly aggressive White House effort to counter Republican criticism of the stimulus, which has mounted as unemployment has continued to rise.
Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. strongly defended the economic stimulus package today, telling an audience at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College that it has saved the economy.
“I’m absolutely, positively confident we are on the right track,” he said of the $787 million package.
Biden addressed a crowd of about 140 community college students and invited guests.
More Biden from today… “We Have to Go Spend Money to Keep From Going Bankrupt”
