I sent my congratulations I hope you did, too.
So, who is Joe Biden? What will he bring to the Obama campaign? And, more importantly, why should McCain be scared of such a man?
The breath of fresh air that is Barack Obama has been doing very well against the constant onslaught by the GOP attack machine – as the VP was announced they went on the attack once again slating Joe Biden for what he said in the primary races.
This was expected by the Obama camp.
But, just who is Joe Biden and why did Obama pick him? A long while ago – someone asked me, before the race really got under way, out of all those running who would I pick – I said Joe Biden. You can find that all over the ‘net and on this blog. Once I got to see more and more of Obama my thoughts and my pick changed to him. But I did say on another blog that I would love to see this ticket.
Obama/Biden just seems right.
In May, Biden responded to a comment made in Israel by President Bush that compared Obama’s willingness to negotiate with Iran to European appeasement of Nazi Germany before World War II.
“This is bulls**t. This is malarkey,” said Biden, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. “This is outrageous. Outrageous for the president of the United States to go to a foreign country, sit in the Knesset … and make this kind of ridiculous statement.”
That’s Joe Biden!
I like him because he doesn’t hold back – he is a straight-talker who takes no prisoners, and that is something the USA needs. I love politicians who say it as it is. Barack Obama is a dream – he is funny, suave, sophisticated and, indeed, inspirational. He will beat John McCain around the head with the soggy end of the arm he has just ripped off in the debates. Watch to see if McCain decides not to debate at one point.
Joe Biden means that Obama will have access to the working-class and the Catholic vote.
Biden says things that he really shouldn’t – but that really shouldn’t matter. He is a man who makes McCain’s straight-talk look exactly what it is, bullshit!
Biden said: “There’s only three things he [McCain] mentions in a sentence: a noun, and a verb and POW.” But the GOP are painting it as if Biden was and still is for McCain and against Obama – nothing could be further from the truth.
Millions of American are sick to the back teeth with the POW stance – even veterans.
I will say congratulations to him again on here, and that congratulations is heartfelt and sincere. I can only see good things with this ticket – and those good things will spill over into the American society once Obama and Biden are picked as the new president and vice-president of the United States of America.
