Vice President Joe Biden said today that if Democrats were to lose 35 House seats they currently hold in traditionally Republican districts, it would mean doomsday for President Obamaâ€™s agenda.
Biden said Republicans are pinning their political strategy on flipping these seats.
â€œIf they take them back, this the end of the road for what Barack and I are trying to do,â€ the vice president said at a fundraiser for Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) today in Greenville, Delaware.
Republicans need to pick up 40 seats next November to take back control of the House.
There are 49 seats currently held by Democrats in districts that Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz) won in last yearâ€™s presidential election.
Biden said these House seats are Republicans â€œone shotâ€ at breaking the Obama administrationâ€™s agenda. But if Democrats can hold on to those seats, â€œthe dam is going to break,â€ he said, and a new era of bipartisanship will begin.
The GOP is jumping for joy in readying the television and radio spots using Slow Joe’s quotes.
Does anyone think Biden will be on the ticket in 2012?
