Joe Biden Concedes: 'Hope and Change' Never Happened

Vice President Joe Biden conceded Wednesday that the "hope and change" that he and President Barack Obama promised the nation in their 2008 campaign slogan never happened.

Speaking at Generation Progress, a segment of the think tank Center for American Progress that is dedicated to student and youth advocacy, the vice president told the millennials that doesn't mean they should give up.

"Look, folks, this is within our power to change," Biden said in remarks first posted by BuzzFeed.

"Everybody says because we tried in '08 and it didn't happen, it's not possible. Wrong. We've gone through these periods before."

He encouraged the young people to be the"drivers" of change.

"But folks, this is totally within our power," he said. "Change. Change for the better is absolutely possible, and I believe it's close to inevitable, if you're the drivers of it."

Republican House Speaker John Boehner wants to pursue a lawsuit against Obama for abuse of power β€” saying he failed to enforce, waived, or ignored laws dozens of times in healthcare, energy and foreign-policy decisions.

At an impasse with Congress, the president has vowed to go it alone and make changes where he can by executive orders.

The optimistic and popular "hope and change" campaign for Obama's first go-round in the White House was replaced in 2012 with a more ambiguous slogan: "Forward."

It immediately lit up Twitter – mostly because of a social media push by Republicans to mock it, the International Business Times reported at the time.

The Biden remarks were noted Wednesday by the Republican National Committee, which called the admission "huge":

Thank you, Rumpelstiltskin.  Put your minions in a stable and have them spin gold out of the stuff on the floor.  It just has to work.  I know it will.

Hitler used the hope and change schtick, too, and look what happened.  History is repeating itself -AGAIN!!
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
