Sweaty, Panting Biden Says 'Heavy Lifting' Is Done
Joe Biden has apparently been personally workingvery hard to get stuff passed, because at a fundraiser today, he said "the heavy lifting is over." The boxes have been moved to America's new apartment! The Hispanic fellows have been given a tip! And pizza has been ordered! Congratulations, the U.S. government is done for now, and you no longer need to pay attention to politics until after the midterm elections, because Joe Biden says so.
Joe Biden further failed to shut his mouth:
“Barack and I are realists," the vice president added. "Government is not the answer. But we also know we can plant seeds. These seeds that have been planted have generated whole new industries.”
But perhaps government is the answer for health care reform? And other things that have been passed? You know, the "heavy lifting" you have done, Joe Biden? Perhaps you just read off the wrong party's talking point.
It's heartening, at least, to know Barack and Joe are planting their seeds everywhere, and that hasn't been diminished by them throwing out their backs with all the heavy lifting. Wait, no, "heartening" is not the word. Gross. "Gross" is what we're looking for. [The Hill]
