Joe Biden, The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Oh the excitement and drama the proceeded Obama's VP pick, Obama had the media in a tizzy just trying to guess just who HE, The One, would pick. Then the other shoe dropped, all that buzz was just for Joe Biden, better known as the "mouth" in the senate. During the debates Joe opined that Barack was "not ready to lead," and that the White House "was not the place for on the job training." If you havent heard this yet, you will, its already been in numerous McCain commercials. Now Joe, showing his usual penchant for placing his foot in his mouth further denograted Obama's decision making by saying:

"Make no mistake about this, Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president of the United States of America. Let’s get that straight. She’s a truly close personal friend, she is qualified to be president of the United States of America, she’s easily qualified to be vice president of the United States of America, and quite frankly, it might have been a better pick than me."

E tu Brute? So not only do you have Republican's questioning Obama's judgement, now his running mate is too. Joe's right, he is a lousy pick and heres why:

Joe Biden Has Zero Filter- Man can this guy talk, if you have ever watched one of his Senate hearings, and that takes an excercise in patience, you know this guy bloviates even more the Bill O Reily and thats tough to do. Biden is a guy, like Obama, who feels entitled and feels smarter then everyone in the room. He will say whatever he wants and has in the past, when he isn't busying plagerizing other people in his speeches he uses his time to opine on any topic presented to them. This guy actually said that Sarah Palin's nomination is "a step backward for women." Um, excuse me? I don't care what your political affiliation is, here is a woman with five children, is a Governor and is a heartbeat away from the Presidency. Oh Joe, just keep talking, these ads are writing themselves as I type.

Joe Biden's Foreign Policy History Is Scarier Then Obama's- Look, I get it Obama Campaign, you wanted a guy who would shore up Obama's lack of foreign policy credentials. But Biden? First of all his record on foreign policy is laughable. He was against the first Persian Gulf War, which was a rousing success and then he voted for the war in Iraq but against the surge. Come again? So you are telling me if I vote for Obama/Biden Im getting an inexperienced Presidential candidate combined with a guy who over 20 years has displayed poor military judgement? Well, sign me up! In this time of escalating tensions with Russia and the middle east I'm sure that would be a wise decision for the electorate to make. (Sigh)

Final Thoughts- Everyone in the media is salivating for the Vice Presidential debate because they think this is where Biden will redeem himself as a good VP pick. Yeah, I'm going to put my money on no. The media has constantly underestimated Sarah and overestimated Biden and this will be to their detriment. Biden is not a strong debater, I watched him in the Democratic Primary and his performance was blustery and uneven. Hillary vs. Palin, now that would have been something to see. Alas, Obama hitched his star to a proven loser who couldnt muster up enough presidential votes to fill an average high school. Wrong move rookie, wrong move.

Agreed! The Biden pick was a disaster and currently his gaff is just making it worse. Biden is a loose cannon and I am excited to see him in a debate and hopefully go off the handle. All I can say is, excellent!
