Obama-Biden: Arrogance You Can Believe In!

    We have been told that Barack Obama is the smartest man to ever have walked on water in politics; but the decision he made tonight, to chose Senator Joe Biden as his running mate has proven to be - stupid.

    Obama-Biden. Why? Obvious reasons-foreign policy. That is the only reason. Biden is Obama's Dick Cheney. Now of course you will not hear the mantra from the media about that analogy-instead-you hear the words: seasoned, giant in foreign policy, adds (don't gag) gravitas. The same criticism that President Bush falls prey to about Dick Cheney being the 'true' Darth Vader behind the Administration is muted tonight, when in fact it should be asked: "Who will be running an Obama Administrations foreign policy?"

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Barack Obama told everyone he wanted a running mate who will challenge his thinking, and now he's got one. Joe Biden's tendency to speak his own mind—and speak and speak—is entwined in his DNA.
    The loquacious Delaware senator brings more than verbiage to Obama's side. Biden is a foreign policy heavyweight with a decade longer in the Senate than the seasoned Republican presidential candidate, John McCain. That's almost three more decades of experience than his new boss.
    In Washington, Biden, 65, is known as a collegial figure even when he's competitive—one who can spin flowery praise one moment and biting fulmination the next.
    His second presidential campaign faltered early on, just one of the Democrats shunted to the sidelines as the bracing contest between Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton sucked the air out of the rest of the field.
    The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Biden is one of the most influential foreign policy voices in Congress. An internationalist and strong supporter of the United Nations, he is a leading critic of what he sees as the vague, unilateralist approach of President Bush.
    Biden voted in 2002 to authorize the Iraq invasion, which Obama opposed from the start. Since then, he's become a firm critic of the conflict and pushed through a resolution last year declaring that Bush's troop increase—now considered a military success—was "not in the national interest."

    Joe Biden is a partisans partisan. He is known mostly for his grandioise statements be it in the Judiciary Committee Hearings or in grilling General David Petraeus. Joe Biden is King Gaffe. Joe Biden is the center of attention and demands such when he is present. Joe Biden overshadows Barack Obama. Obama chose unwisely.

    His handling of this decision, his fake 'texting' exercise, the Clinton snub and the fact that he is making all the politically correct choices is showing his immaturity. He believes this is a run for president, not of the United States; but rather for Mr. Popularity-Joe Cool.

    Democrats are touting his choice as 'wise', while lamenting the fact that Hillary was not even considered. We will address the many sides of Joe Biden as the days and weeks go on, but my dear readers - objectively I see no hope and certainly, I see no change.

    Is Barack sabotaging his own election? Will HRC seek revenge? Will her faithful PUMA folks stand by Biden? Stay tuned...

    You are pretty pathetic when it comes to misinformation, but keep practicing, you will get better.

    If you do get better then perhaps you might get an EIB Golden mic Jr.

    If you want to get better at what you are doing, I seriously suggest you study Joseph Goebbels.

    I am dead serious about this, it will help you ALOT in the kinds of things you are trying to do here.

    No, I have not elaborately studied him, but he would be right up your ally...

    Hi GeneralRachel,

    I will just examine two points that you made about Obama. First, you state that he thinks that he is running for Mr. Cool and second, you say that he snubbed Hillary Clinton.

    To the first point, what is your statement that Obama thinks he is running for Mr. Cool is based on? Did he say that? If so, please cite the source. Do you have telepathic powers whereby you are able, in a sense, to listen in on his private thoughts?

    To the second point, your said that Obama "snubbed" Hillary Clinton. I would beg to disagree. He was, he said, looking for someone who was conpatible with him. Hillary Clinton, though a very smart candidate, just did not fit his ticket. They just would not be able to work well together for the next four years! Let me bring this point closer to home. Suppose you were going to choose a business partner to partnership with you on a short term venture. You have several choices. One potential partner business philosophy is the exact opposite of yours. Another potential partner shares a similar business philosophy as you. The only problem is that he is unethical. The third potential partner shares both a similar business philosophy and an ethical code as you yourself. That being so, you choose the latter of the three choices. Question: Because you did not choose the former two candidates, would you argue that you snubbed them? I would think not. On the contrary, you just choice that most compatible potential partner of the three. You made a judgment call, not a snub. So, too, Obama did the same thing. He did not choose Hillary simply because he felt that the two of them would not be able to work well together over the next four years. That was a judgment made on his part and NOT a snub as you contend.
