Just for kicks let’s assume we’re in an alternate universe and Biden is correct. Exactly how high would the debt be if the Tea Party didn’t stop them from growing the economy?

Vice President Joe Biden admitted to a group of supporters in New Hampshire this afternoon that the President would have been able help the economy “much, more” if the Tea Party hadn’t taken the House.

Biden showed the audience the Obama campaigns chart of job growth during the President’s first term in office and accused the Tea Party for stalling the recovery, because of the debt limit fight.

“Imagine where we’d be if the Tea Party hadn’t taken control of the House of Representatives,” Biden said adding that they were “a group set on obstructionism.”

Wake up, Joe. Too many people don’t have the strength to imagine where they’d be because they’re too horrified by where they are.

Fortunately for the Stimulus Sheriff and the administration, there were plenty of economic measures the Tea Party couldn’t stop. Keep your chin up, Mr. Vice President… you still have these to campaign on — good luck:

As for charges of obstructionism, it doesn’t seem there’s been a problem working around that:

As for Obama’s budget proposal, the Tea Party has indeed been obstructing its passage. Well, the Tea Party members along with everybody else.
