Sure, blink and you might miss it…but that’s America’s favorite goofy uncle who awkwardly masquerades as a VP, making the rare admission that the “Hope and Change” promised so adamantly by Barry and Joey in 2008…didn’t happen.
“Everybody says because we tried in ’08 and it didn’t happen, it’s not possible,” declared Biden at a Center for American Progress event. “Folks, this is totally within our power. Change for the better is absolutely possible.”
Way to try and put lipstick on that pig at the end there, Joe, but I think we’ll focus on your earlier comment instead. Indeed, change didn’t happen…and what became abundantly clear is that even if change was “absolutely possible,” the Obama administration of the past six years was not the team that was ever going to be capable of delivering it to us. Saying it “didn’t happen” sounds like he’s trying to pretend that he and Obama didn’t actually win the White House. If he thinks distancing himself from Barack at this stage in the game is going to give him a shot at dethroning Hillary in 2016, he’s more delusional than I ever could have imagined.
This is actually really sad. It sounds like a last-ditch effort to beg voters to give Democrats one last chance in the upcoming 2014 midterm elections. The problem is that Biden was preaching to the choir when he made that plea. Honestly, if the administration is worried about the Center for American Progress not turning out to vote this fall, then they’re absolutely doomed. But I suppose they’d much rather make a pitch to a left-wing think tank than to try and re-convert former supporters who have now turned against all that Obama stands for — you know, people like Peggy Joseph.
