Yeah, what he said

Hey, weren't we admonished by the big fella that Las Vegas was a no-fly zone? No matter.

Biden provided the closing address at the 28th Annual International Brotherhood of Teamsters Convention at the Paris Hotel on Friday. The Vice President, who is known for his straightforward style, didn't hide his feelings about the current labor union fights across the country. He believes they are under attack by his Republican rivals for no apparent reason.

Vice President Joe Biden acknowledged it wasn't a political event, but it still didn't prevent him from sending this warning to Teamsters union members during his address at their annual convention in Las Vegas this past Friday.

"And don't any of you, by the way, any of you guys vote Republican," Biden said. "I'm not supposed to say, this isn't political. ...don't come to me if you do! You're on your own, Jack!"

That this administration would just leave everyone to be "on your own" let alone Jack would be music to our ears but the fact that Joey B. said what he said reveals the statist mindset of the primacy of the government over the individual and the political codependency of the Democratic party and labor unions.
