Oh my god,
This is incredible, He will be the greatest president we have ever had, I love Barack, He will not be defeated. I made a bet with my editor, that we would be running a story about VP Biden, but he thought it would be Bayh. My god this is awesome.

Obama should have picked Ron Paul instead of Biden. Now, he has no chance to win because nobody wants to vote for a black guy and an irish catholic at the same time.

McCain can easily go for the win by nominating Ron Paul as his running mate.

Ron Paul

"you cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent." -Joe Biden July 2006

I wonder what he has said about Obama behind closed doors!
 
2008-08-23 03:38:24 AM  
"I'd be honored to run with or against John Mccain, because the country would be better off no matter who won..."

Who said it...You guessed it....Joe Biden....

Let's just say his quotes about Obama are alot less positive....

This will make a great ad....

Like how all of a sudden the anti-capitalism concern trolls were worried so much about how many houses the McCain family owns?



Great job staying on message! Be sure to keep pretending it's only about the number of houses he owns, and not about the fact that owns so many that he can't remember the number. Show us what a troll with discipline can do!

I won't be surprised. There've been leaks with the bumper stickers, let's see what else shows up.

LOL, I just wish more drunkards had that passion.

We need a serious change in direction with the country. I'm pretty sure every American can agree with that.

What I don't believe is that "more of the same politics" like we have above will change anything.


As long as these massive corporations have a grip on our government, nothing will change for our desires. Only theirs!

Exactly. I mean, Biden voted in favor of the Iraq invasion, and the USA PATRIOT Act and only has a 60% approval rating from the ACLU...

Wait, are we talking about the same joe biden who voted YES on adding sexual orientation to definition of hate crimes, voted YES on race quotas...errr...affirmative action, voted YES on banning drilling in ANWAR, and is rated Rated 16% by the Christian Coalition?

I think you have enough to keep you busy. It isn't my job to baby sit you. Educate yourself, I'm not going to do it for you. If you actually give a farking shiat about knowing what you're talking about, then you have plenty to get you started.

Then again, if you were the type who gave a shiat what you were talking about, you would never have asserted that "anti-science" was something that only applied to the "right" in the first place. People on both sides cherry pick shiat and misrepresent science to work to their advantage.

GWShenlong05: Donald_McRonald: Actually, I think Obama's gaffe's are commiserate with Bush's.

Heh.

I disagree. When I hear Obama make a gaffe, it's easy enough to understand what he means to say. Same with Hillary Clinton - some of the mistakes she made during speeches and debates (e.g. Drivers licenses for illegal immigrants), it was easy enough to understand what she meant to say. When you're running on such little sleep and nutrition, and are spending so much of your time speaking to crowds, the brain doesn't always transmit the proper words to the mouth. But the meaning is still there.

When Bush effs up while speaking, it's difficult to infer any deeper meaning except that the man either doesn't understand the problems in America or simply doesn't care.


Basically, go back and watch the presidential campaign footage from any of the past televised elections. Virtually ALL candidates have moments of looking like awkward 13 year old students doing a class presentation. (Nixon in '60?) And they still look a little unpolished for a couple months into the first term -- but with a little super intensive handling, diction drills, mindless talking point rote memorization, they all end up looking presidential. I was STUNNED by how W changed from Dorky Frat Rat to occasionally clear speaking grown-up right around 9/11. The timing was downright creepy.
 
2008-08-23 03:49:17 AM  
bahr: Most of us out here are old enough to remember why Joe Biden never became President in any previous election year.

I think you're being over dramatic.

He might not be a great elected president. But given the Vice President's job, right now he's good. He's a common man, he can set himself against McCain's wealth, or if he chooses him, Romney's wealth as well. Or he could force McCain to choose a less capable person. I don't think anyone he could choose would stand up to Biden in a debate. He's a hard-scrabble person, and I think he'll help in OH and PA, and maybe FL. He's going to get good press, I think. And Rush and his ilk won't be on till Monday to say a bad word against him (and even then the Convention starts, so they'll have a lot to focus on).

It's a good choice. It's a solid choice. Youth + Experience. McCain can't spit at that, from any of his 7 houses' windows he aims from.

Would I have liked a sexier, more progressive choice? Sure. But my end result is winning. If we're gonna win, Obama thinks we need someone like Biden. He hasn't lead me wrong so far, so I'll trust his judgment.

Why does America refuse to vote for socialists? Well, history for one. America has a national identity of self reliance and the "can do" spirit which is still very much alive. Also, socialism rewards failure and penalizes success. Thius is a great disincentive to progress and social mobility. Socialism requires huge bureaucracies which are always corrupt and inefficient relative to private enterprise. Socialism is forced redistribution of wealth which goes against the very foundation of the our idea of the inviolability of private property and, finally, socialism is a poor way of allocating resources, it is inefficient and entails large institutional costs which reduce the overall amount of those resources available over all.

Clear to you Che worshipers now?

FTFY

Hypothetical: If massive corporationstm are the problem, what idiot in their right mind thinks that the "little people" can stand up to them?

Maybe a little "socialist government interaction" taking on the corporations could do us some good; and remember that we imposed a 4 year term, and 2 term limit for a reason! Just because it is here to fix things, doesn't mean we will be in a socialist pig-country forever.
