The Coming Test

“I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate,” Biden said, mentioning the Middle East and Russia as possibilities. This is the same Joe Biden who voted against the first Gulf War in 1990 because the US would sustain astronomical losses. So maybe we should just ignore his predictions. The same Joe Biden who voted for the Iraq War in 2002 and then took it back in 2007 when he wanted to run for President. So maybe he'll change his mind tomorrow on this threat.

Joe Biden-His-Time thinks President McCain wouldn't be tested in the first six months by these scenarios, but President Obama would. Why? Might be experience. Might be character. Might be age. Might be the stand on the Iraq War. Might be he knows something we don't?

    For 22 years, Mr. McCain was an aviator in the US Navy. During the Vietnam War after a missile struck his plane in 1967, he was taken prisoner of war by the North Vietnamese. Five and a half years later, he was released. His naval honors include a Silver Star, a Bronze Star, and a Purple Heart. McCain has also coauthored five books. He graduated from the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md. He had two terms in the U.S. House and 4 in the Senate.

    Mr. Obama began his career as a community organizer in Chicago and worked there for a foundation distributing money for education projects. He has written two books about himself and his ambition. He graduated from Columbia University in New York and received his law degree from Harvard Law School in Cambridge, Mass. He is in his first term as a U.S. Senator, and served in the Illinois legislature.
Who knows what Joe Biden means when he rambles, wanders, wonders, and fumbles. But if Sarah Palin had said this, you can betcha it would be all over the papers and the cable channels. They would be screaming racist, bigot, fear-mongerer, stupid-in-lipstick girl-talk.
