Joe Biden Strikes Again: Obama Hasn’t Delivered on ‘Hope and Change’ Promised in 2008

An admission that the “change” promised during Pres. Obama’s 2008 “Hope and Change” campaign never happened came from the strangest source on Wednesday.

 
President Obama’s handpicked running mate VP Joe Biden told a group of young liberals (progressives) that the “change didn’t happen” but urged the youngsters not to throw in the towel.

 

Many of the kids gathered for the annual convention of Generation Progress appeared somewhat bewildered by Mr. Biden’s comments at the left-wing Center for American Progress think tank.

 

“Look folks, this is within our power to change,” Biden insisted. Mr. Biden and the Obama administration have now been in power more than 5 ½ years and is considered by many to be an early lame-duck presidency. . .
