"This is not your father’s Republican Party. It really is a fundamentally different party. There’s never been as much distance, at least since I’ve been alive, distance between where the mainstream of the Republican congressional party is and the Democratic Party is. It’s a chasm. It’s a gigantic chasm.”
Biden said the "last thing" the country needs is a new senator who will back Cruz and Paul.
“Think about this,” he said. “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.”
The vice president pointed specifically to the Senate's rejection of expanded background checks earlier this year. Biden said he reached out to 17 senators, including nine Republicans, ahead of the vote to urge them to support the measure.
"Not one of offered an explanation on the merits of why they couldn’t vote for the background check," Biden said. "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.’"
Biden continued: “I actually said, ‘Are you kidding? These are two freshmen.'"
Yeah essentially the Republican party is not longer a viable political party due to the fact they are unable to compromise or make deals on ANYTHING due to the fact that the wingnuts have so vilified this President, and his party, that working with them is now considered political death for a Republican.
It cannot be stressed enough that the only hope for progress is to get rid of as many Republicans in the Senate and Congress as possible until the obstructionists on the Right have been removed or rendered impotent.
Just remember who worked to get Ted Cruz elected in the first place.
