BIDEN: “I won’t go on, I don’t want to get too passionate about this, but it really makes me angry. Not a joke. Some of you know me. No one ever doubts I mean what I say, the problem is sometimes I say all that I mean…. Look guys, ladies, you know, my dad as I said because he moved from Scranton because there were no good jobs after coal died…. I know what is it like watching uncles, aunts, friends, neighbors, lose a job. My dad used to say ‘Joe remember, a job is about a lot more than a paycheck. It’s about your dignity, it’s about your respect. It’s about your place in your community. It’s about being able to look your kid in the eye and say, honey, it’s going to be okay.’ I’m not being melodramatic. I mean that from the bottom of my heart, as my father did. They don’t get it. Some people in my party don’t even get it anymore. They don’t get it. It’s about our pride. It’s about our dignity. It’s about who the hell we are and what we’ve done. And it makes me angry. It makes me angry.”
As The Gateway Pundit’s Kristinn Taylor previously reported, Biden is strongly considering a run for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in 2020, according to a report by the Associated Press’ Josh Lederman. Separately, it was reported by Foreign Policy’s Robbie Gramer that Biden ‘stole the show’ at February’s Munich Security Conference where he was welcomed with open arms by European leaders ‘with an air of ‘2020’ swirling around him’.
The AP report also notes Biden is planning to ‘play a major role’ in the 2018 mid-term elections to help the Democrats take back the House and Senate.
