Joe Biden: Change Promised in 2008 ‘Didn’t Happen’

Expect a snippet of this clip to appear in future ads from Republicans running against President Obama‘s record.

During a Wednesday speech before a Generation Progress event, Vice President Joe Biden solemnly suggested that the change promised in 2008 — the de facto Obama-Biden slogan was “hope and change” — never came to fruition.

In a clip flagged by the RNC’s digital team, Biden told the crowd that despite the failure to bring about that promised change, progressives should still believe in their power to alter how the system operates:

Look folks, this is within our power to change. Everybody says because we tried in ‘08 and it didn’t happen, it’s not possible. Wrong. We’ve gone through these periods before… But folks, this is totally within our power. Change. Change for the better is absolutely possible and I believe it’s close to inevitable, if you’re the drivers of it.
