UPDATE: Madeline Albright agrees with Biden… Click HERE
Ok, so Joe Biden made these scary comments during a stump speech…
“Mark my words,” the Democratic vice presidential nominee warned at the second of his two Seattle fundraisers Sunday. “It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy…. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”
“I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate,” Biden said to Emerald City supporters, mentioning the Middle East and Russia as possibilities. “And he’s gonna need help. And the kind of help he’s gonna need is, he’s gonna need you – not financially to help him – we’re gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it’s not gonna be apparent initially, it’s not gonna be apparent that we’re right.”
“Gird your loins,” Biden told the crowd….
“There are gonna be a lot of you who want to go, ‘Whoa, wait a minute, yo, whoa, whoa, I don’t know about that decision’,” Biden continued….
“I probably shouldn’t have said all this because it dawned on me that the press is here,” he joked.
Why does this scare the absolute bejesus out of me? Simple.
First, Obama is young, inexperienced and naive… the world knows it and Biden just confirmed that he knows it too.
Not exactly the guy I want for President.
Second, because the world knows that he is young and naive, there are 5 scenarios that could explode in Obama’s face. Biden even names them and says that any one event, and indicates that more than one, will happen… and not because they would happen naturally, not because they were going to happen anyway, and as a corrollary would not happen with McCain as President… they would happen BECAUSE Obama is President.
Not WHEN… BECAUSE.
Simply electing Obama would incide one or more MAJOR international incidents? Well why the hell would I want that?
Third, the comparison that Biden makes is to the young Kennedy. While I greatly admire Kennedy and how he handled himself during the Cuban Missile Crisis and a few other scenarios, there were some grievous errors on his part that led us to near certain full scale nuclear war.
The Kruschev-Kennedy summit was an embarrassment. Kennedy was completely outclassed.
The Bay of Pigs incident was a total disaster. A trainwreck.
The escalation of the Vietnam War was not the best idea ever… and that nearly tore the country apart.
These incidents and the image of a young, naive, and weak President led to the closes the world has ever been to all out nuclear war. Kennedy’s initial fumbling nearly cost every single person on the earth their lives.
That said, Kennedy did some wonderful things domestically and Kennedy’s management of the Cuban Missile Crisis was superlative. It rewrote the books on international diplomacy…. I would just prefer not to get to that point again.
Fourth, I wanna know what the hell Biden is talking about when he says to basically just trust them because ”it’s not gonna be apparent initially, it’s not gonna be apparent that we’re right”?????
What the hell is he talking about?!?!?! What the hell kind of decision is Obama going to make where the whole country is gonna do a “WTF?”
This mystery decision is the most ominous part of the whole thing. Damn that is scary.
What’s it gonna be? An invasion of Pakistan? Backing Hamas (who is endorsing the Obama/Biden ticket) and Palestine? Institution of a draft? A crazy jump in taxes? Mass nationalization of banks?
And we are supposed to suspend our own judgement and substitute it with that of Dear Leader Chairman MaObama? Are you kidding me?
Oh hell no… No Deal.
