Joe Biden Warns Teamsters: Vote Dem or ‘You’re on Your Own, Jack’

A threat this empty hasn’t been uttered since Captain Hazelwood told Exxon, “Don’t even think about blaming this on me or you’ll have to find somebody else to drive your tankers!”

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!”

Do you think the White House getting a little nervous that another Teamsters flip to a GOP endorsement could be on the dismal economic horizon the way it happened with Reagan?

“You’re on your own.” No help from Joe Biden? What a frightening prospect. Given a choice between being “helped” by Joe Biden or being on my own, I’d choose “on my own” 99.99% of the time (the .01% would be if I needed a skilled partner for a water gun fight or directions to the nearest one-and-a-half-star hair transplant clinic).

The Teamsters meeting was held in Las Vegas, the city where, just last year, President Obama said people shouldn’t “blow a bunch of cash” during times of economic belt tightening. If the Teamsters aren’t listening to Obama, what are the chances that they’re paying attention to anything Joe Biden says?
