Politics have become “too personal” and that much of the fault is due to the tea party, said Vice President Joseph R. Biden in an interview with The New York Times for its new website, First Draft.

“There are a lot of good people involved in the tea party,” Mr. Biden said, in the interview, but “their ends are met best when nothing happens” because their gist is to oppose the government, he added, The Hill reported.

And their means have been most successful, he said.

The current state of gridlock in Washington, D.C., is due in large part because politics are “too personal” and most politicians “spend more time today questioning motive [rather than] … judgment,” he said, The Hill reported.

The First Draft website is aimed at asking politicians how to fix Washington.
