Sen. Joe Biden talks about the issues the Republicons don’t want to talk about:
But, I’ll tell you, it’s not so much of what I heard in the Republican convention. When you heard John speak last night. It’s not so much what I heard, when I heard part of what the Governor had to say, the vice presidential candidate. It’s what I didn’t hear.
THE SILENCE – THE SILENCE OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WAS DEAFENING. IT WAS DEAFENING. ON JOBS, ON HEALTH CARE, ON ENVIRONMENT, ON ALL THE THINGS THAT MATTER TO THE PEOPLE IN THE NEIGHBORHOODS I GREW UP IN. DEAFENING!
Ladies and gentlemen, THEIR AMERICA IS NOT THE AMERICA I LIVE IN. THEY SEE SOMETHING DIFFERENT THAN I SEE
He goes on to hit them hard over the issues they don’t want to discuss. Brutal and brilliant. And he ends with the knockout punch:
You know what I’m talking about.
What do you talk about, when you have nothing to say?!
What do you talk about when you CANNOT EXPLAIN THE LAST EIGHT YEARS OF FAILURE?!
What do you talk about?! What do you talk about?!
You talk about the other guy.
Crowd: Giv’em Hell, Joe!
Biden: Remember what Harry Truman used to say. The crowd would yell, “giv’em hell, Harry.” And he’d say, “I’m not gonna to giv’em hell, I’m gonna tell them the truth, and they’re gonna think it’s HELL.”
I don’t think Republicons are going to have a very good time this election season. Not. At. All.
