Biden: 'The last thing in the world we need is' more Tea Partiers

Senators like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are lovely people, Vice President Joe Biden admitted during a fundraiser for Massachusetts Democrat Ed Markey Tuesday evening.

“I’m not talking about the character or even the quality of the minds of the people I’m going to mention," Biden said, "but the last thing in the world we need now is someone who will go down to the United States Senate and support Ted Cruz, support the new senator from Kentucky," he added, referring to Paul.

The Washington Examiner has more:

“Think about this,” he said. “Have you ever seen a time when two freshman senators are able to cower the bulk of the Republican Party in the Senate? That is not hyperbole.”

The Vice President expressed frustration with his failure to pass more gun control laws, explaining to the crowd that every time he tried to win the support of a Republican Senator, they cited Cruz and Paul as the reason they couldn’t join him.

“I actually said, ‘Are you kidding? These are two freshman,’” Biden added. “This is a different, party folks. They’re not bad guys, and they’re both very bright guys. And I’m not questioning their motive.”
