Joe Biden says Rep. Patrick Murphy “did the country a favor” by ousting Allen West

Vice President Joe Biden apparently isn’t the biggest fan of now-former Rep. Allen West.

During a rooftop party for West’s competition — newly sworn-in Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-Fla.) — the VP expressed his delight about the outcome of the 18th Congressional District race.

“I’d like to say to all of you, you did the country a favor,” Biden told the party crowd on Thursday, according to TCPalm.

Biden also joked about West’s claim that there are 80 communists in the House of Representatives — meaning the Democrats in the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

“This way, we’ll never know who the 30 communists were up here, or 80, or however the hell many there were,” Biden said at the party.

Murphy said the Vice President hadn’t stopped in at other celebrations on Thursday and drew comparisons between Biden’s political background and cultural heritage and his own.

Despite his departure and the Vice President’s disapproval, West still holds some support in the House. Two Congressmen, Paul Broun (R-Ga.) and Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), cast votes for West for Speaker of the House on Thursday, The Huffington Post reports.

      Biden is a dumb jerk.

    Murphy did not defeat West, the Republican Establishment did when they re-drew the lines of his District. Even then, West came close to victory. The Rino’s worked hand in hand with the Democrats to defeat a Tea Party Republican who was too independent and couldn’t be bought. Yes, Virginia, there are wolves dressed in wool among the flock!

  5. Richard Matthews says:

    Unfortunately, this clown VP is supported by over 50% of Americans. We seem to be sending the worst of America to DC. Shameful and will eventually destroy what is left of our Constitutional Republic. I would say that close to 90% of the democrats have communist leanings.

    Joe B is Barack Obama’s best insurance. NOBODY wants Joe as president.

      Good point Tina.

    Does Biden hate Allen West because he is black? The answer is yes.
