Vice President Joe Biden said Friday at at a Dallas fundraiser that the Obama administration's political troubles are rooted in the failures of...wait for it...the Bush years.
“We inherited a cynical republic,” he told a room full of supporters at a Northwest Dallas home. “And I can’t blame them. Eight years of collapse, eight years of being misled about wars.
They [Republicans] still believe cynicism will prevail, that the government can’t do anything, that we’re a bunch of socialists – all these things you hear. I think the healthcare debate put a big stake in the heart of that argument.”
Yes, Mr. Vice President, the healthcare debate has done a great deal to dispel Americans' cynicism in their government.
