Biden Issues Warning to Democrats as Conservative Party Gains Victory in the UK

Aaron P. Bernstein/Reuters

Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) issued a warning to Democrats after he heard the news that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party gained a resounding victory in the United Kingdom’s election on Thursday.

“Boris is winning in a walk,” Biden told reporters at a fundraiser in California. He said that the headlines about the election would read, “Look what happens when the Labour Party moves so, so far to the left. It comes up with ideas that are not able to be contained in a rational basis quickly.”

Biden has positioned himself as a moderate and downplayed the notion that the base of the Democratic Party has embraced a far-left agenda.

In an interview with Axios, Biden said that progressive star Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is not the future of the Democratic Party.

“You guys got it all wrong what happened,” Biden said, adding that the Ocasio-Cortez’s election did not signal a sudden lurch toward support of far-left policies.

“It’s just bad judgment. You all thought that what happened was the party moved extremely to the left after Hillary. AOC was a new party, She’s a bright, wonderful person. But where’s the party? Come on, man.”

In the wake of Johnson’s victory pundits in America wondered whether the U.K.’s election could signal trouble for Democrats in the 2020 presidential election, noting that the 2016 Brexit vote was seen as foreshadowing President Donald Trump’s victory later that year.

However, others noted that Johnson worked hard to make the election a referendum on Brexit, arguing that the election was not a rejection of the Labour Party’s policies.

What do you think?

Good point: Inside each “progressive” is a totalitarian (Socialist)screaming to get out.

““This is a pathetic revision of the truth. See above.” Once again, genital contusion is here to tell all of us that he, and HE ALONE, speaks the truth. And you have the nerve to call someone else pathetic.” banstan I am confused, banstan. Do YOU honestly think that Joke Biden is IN ANY WAY progressive/or a “leftie”, because THAT is what Sherri asserted. Biden is so conservative that there is absolutely NOTHING progressive that he favors, so that idea is so out to lunch that it HAD to be called out. It is similar to calling Tea Party members… Read more »

“joe biden HAS to appease progressives, and he knows that, to have any chance of winning the election. You are BLIND if you can’t see that the progressive left now runs the dims.” banstan banstan is confused – again. At the moment, there is only one main political party – the corrupted donor party. It has the conservative wing controlled by the corporate Democratic Party/DNC and an increasingly abusively conservative American Fascist Party wing completely backing King Donald The Loser. Both wings take bribes from the same donors, so the donors don’t care which candidates win. Just like in a… Read more »

“The left will be throwing dark money (something they use in abundance yet claim to abhor) everywhere.” Sherri

You are just trying to cause confusion, Sherri

The then Republican Party taught the Democratic Party members how to take political bribes DECADES ago. If YOU want to help stop corruption, then elect better politicians than you have been.

Gropin’ Joe missed the obvious. “Boris” is a Russian name. Why aren’t the Dims hollering about collusion?

Probably the for the same reasons alleged “Catholics” like Pelosi and Biden are all for abortion.

Hypocrisy and lack of a broader vision. Ahh….the Elite has proven anything but.

Genital,

You failed to note that Gropin’ Joe Lunchbox has embraced far-Left policies. Publicly. Watch the debate highlights.

He IS completely corrupt and a liar. Both he and his less-than-honorably discharged cokehead son attended the same private school (current annual tuition $29k/year). That’s middle-class alright. He’s spent almost five decades in politics, well preceding his hair plugs. Hunter is Joe, just less disciplined. Let’s see if he runs for office.

Yet next to Bernie he’s actually got a law degree and socked away more money.

So….which greater corruptocrat will you vote for?
