From 2008 to 2016, Joe Biden served as Vice President under Barack Obama.
However, Obama and Biden didn’t always see eye-to-eye, which is why Obama didn’t endorse Biden until every other Democrat had dropped out of the race.
And you’ll never guess the one word Joe Biden just used to describe Barack Obama.
Before Democrats rammed their $1.9 trillion spending bill through Congress on Saturday, Joe Biden held a virtual call with the House Democrat Caucus Issues Conference to make the case for passage of their $1.9 trillion COVID-19 spending bill.
During the call, Biden compared the bill to the $1 trillion “porkulus” bill Barack Obama rammed through Congress back in 2009, even falsely claiming that the bill “saved” our economy from crashing.
“[T]he economists told us we literally saved America from a depression,” said Biden.
Of course, Obama’s “porkulus” bill outraged voters so much that Republicans picked up a net gain of 63 seats during the 2010 midterms.
But according to Joe Biden, Democrats didn’t lose seats over the “porkulus” bailout bill.
Instead, they lost seats because Barack Obama was too “modest” to take a “victory lap” in the Fake News Media.
“[W]e didn’t adequately explain what we had done,” Biden added. “Barack was so modest, he didn’t want to take, as he said, a ‘victory lap.’”
“I kept saying, ‘Tell people what we did,’” Biden continued. “He said, ‘We don’t have time. I’m not going to take a victory lap.’ And we paid a price for it, ironically, for that humility.”
Joe Biden must be living in an alternate universe.
The American people didn’t vote to kick out 63 Democrats in Congress in 2010 because the Obama administration was being “modest.”
They kicked out Democrats from power of the majority in response to the gargantuan mess that is the so-called “Affordable Care Act” (Obamacare) and how poorly the administration was handling the rebounding of the economy.
But despite Biden’s reassurances, Democrats are still worried about facing the wrath of angry voters at the ballot box in 2022 just like they did in 2010 after passing the “porkulus” bill.
