According to Mark Finkelstein of Newsbusters, vice-president Biden sent out a fundraising email that declared GOP senators confessed to him their secret motivations for voting against background checks, and their reasons were that they were afraid of Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. Biden wrote:
When I asked several Republican senators after they voted against background checks, not one offered an explanation on the merits of why they couldn’t vote for them. But almost to a person, they said, “I don’t want to take on Ted Cruz. I don’t want to take on Rand Paul. They’ll be in my district.”
Here’s the question: does anyone believe that GOP senators would go to confession with Joe Biden, or is it more likely that the two GOP senators the White House most fears are in their crosshairs and Biden has been told to launch bloodletting against them now?
