Far and away, the elected official making the strongest, clearest, most easily understood case against the Obama agenda is Joe Biden.
Has any Republican made any argument as damaging as “We misread how bad the economy was”?
Or has any spending hawk made it as obvious and revealing as the vice president’s argument from yesterday, “We have to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt”?
Listen, I know the Republican party has some smooth talkers and some strategic communicators and yes, Obama’s poll numbers have dipped lately. But the bar has been raised by one man who has a gift for articulating the flaws of the administration in a succinct and explicit manner. It’s time for the GOP’s public persuaders to raise their game to the level that Biden has.
