“I’m being straight about this. This is not your father’s Republican Party. It really is a fundamentally different party. There’s never been as much distance, at least since I’ve been alive, distance between where the mainstream of the Republican congressional party is and the Democratic Party is. It’s a chasm. It’s a gigantic chasm.”Thank God for that. Because, Joe, it's not that the GOP has cast off and set sail for parts unknown (at least not the Conservatives that make up an ever-thinning slice of the GOP, but that's another issue entirely); it's the Democrats who've sped away from traditional American values and our Constitution, and wish to fundamentally CHANGE us to what we cannot be and still remain a Republic.
In fact, Joe, it's a very good thing there's some left in the GOP who would take a principled stand against you and your newly-crazy Party. Because if we didn't, we would not be Americans except in name; we'd be so far-Left as to be indistinguishable from Communists.
Which is exactly where the Democrats are headed if they keep their current vector.
I know; I was once a Blue Dog Democrat who voted for Jimmy Carter in 1976, and for Al Gore, twice, as US Senator from Tennessee.
All that before the Democrats began their CHANGE and started running far-Left.
We Conservatives act as an anchor, to try to keep this Republic together. You, Joe Biden, your Master Barack Obama, and his masters (out of sight but still pulling his strings) are too damned far-Left. And you have the nerve to say it's Conservative GOPers who've created this 'chasm'?
The 'chasm' you mention is between your freakin' ears.
That is all.
Oh, and this, revisiting 'Biden, the Wind-Up Debate Monkey'. Because some things never change.
