Biden to Union Members: If You Vote Republican, Don't Ask Me For Any Help

FOX News

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!”

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.

“Look at Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana, Missouri, Iowa, Florida, Pennsylvania. Did you ever think in 2011 you would be fighting for the right to work for less again?,” said Biden. “What in God’s name did any organized labor union do to the collapse of this economy?. . . [I]t’s bizarre, but that’s the case they’re making.”

Republican governors in several states have sought to curb Union power in an effort to balance their state’s budgets.

Biden also jokingly took a jab at the GOP, suggesting they change their logo.

“Jimmy,” said Biden, referring to Teamsters Union president James R. Hoffa, “your (the Teamsters Union) logo is the horse’s head. Their (GOP) logo should be the other horse’s end.”


Wild Thing's comment.......

The trash which IS the Obama administration should be arrested for crimes against America!

Obama has made his threats in the past and Biden is joining in with the same kind of thing.Once again the left makes threats and the conservative believe in freedom.

Is this just typical dumb ass Biden or do they know ahead of time who is going to vote for whom. Is our own damn fault. This crap has been going on for years and nobody does anything about Voter fraud, Hell in Chicago, the size of the landslide victory is dependent on how many cemeterirs are in ones district.

Biden is preaching to the choir here. The only people attending that event, are the Union Leaders, who as we all know, get the highest salaries and the biggest benefits, as a result of resolutions and legislation, passed by the Dems.

I live in a "Union Town" here in California, ILWU, to be exact. It always amazes me how they all can line up behind, whatever their leaders tell them as far, as how to vote.

They just don't seem to realize that part of this inflation is, to some degree, created by the greed of Union negotiators.

They complain about the economy being in the tank, but cannot relate it to the laws and regulations passed by their beloved Democratic Legislators.

It's like watching a herd of sheep.

Mark, your right it is very typical. I guess the Union people are used to being told what to do. Gosh I would hate that.

Sean, thanks for sharing that.
Yes like a herd of sheep is a good example.
