DC Trawler

Guess who’s already worried about Paul/Cruz ’16?

Go ahead. Guess.

Daniel Halper at the Weekly Standard reports:

At a high-dollar fundraiser last night in Washington, D.C., Vice President Joe Biden warned his fellow Democrats about the Republicans.

“It’s a pretty simple proposition: The United States of America, and the state of Massachusetts, does not need another Republican in the Senate,” Biden told the assembled donors, according to the press pool report. “I’m being straight about this. This is not your father’s Republican Party…”

In particular, Biden shared his distrust of two young Republican senators, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul…

“Think about this. … 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.”

He says that like it’s a bad thing. Because it is, for him.

Just this morning I was talking to a friend who predicts a Rand Paul/Ted Cruz ticket in 2016. I said, “Well, you’ll know it’s happening when the Dems start going after both of them at once.” Little did I realize, I was 12 hours late!

You keep thinkin’, Joe. That’s what you’re good at.
