Steel in his spine ad

Wow. Talk about taking a phrase out of context! The latest Obama ad trying to shave the rough edges of Biden's 2 speeches in which he warns the American people (via an Obama friendly audience) that there will be hell to pay if Obama is elected (I'm paraphrasing here, he actually said an international, generated crisis to test him) is a masterpiece of obfuscation, speechifying and scare tactics. He's obviously not talking about the Republicans creating a crisis--we can't even find McCain yard signs around here and we're supposed to be a critical state.

Let's see what others say about steel. Here's one I fell into today while researching "track two diplomacy."
    “Afghanistan and the Afghan people are ready to assist the United State to stabilize Afghanistan and re-build it into a progressive state, only if the United States does not display weakening of resolve in this direction and stops exploring dangerous alternatives like exit strategies and dialogue with the much Afghan-hated Taliban. The Afghan people look to USA for steely resolve in eliminating the Taliban threat to Afghanistan.” Dr. Subhash Kapila
I don't know who Dr. Kapila is, or who he's speaking to, but Obama has no steely resolve or steel in his spine (unless it's a hanger for that empty suit) except to be our first marxist president and bring the USA to its knees. No Taliban need apply--he's got it covered. The steel is all in his supporters like Bill Ayers and George Soros. Steel like in the nails in home made bombs from the Weathermen.

Biden's threat was not a gaffe (a mistake made by a politician who accidentally tells the truth). He was dead serious. Let's review.
    "We're about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember, I said it standing here, if you don't remember anything else I said: Watch, we're gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy."
Joe's known for gaffes, blurts and misremembering (like who was president in 1929, the closing of a diner in his home town, how many letters are in JOBS), but this was a prepared speech, so awful and terrifying, that after McCain brings it up in the campaign, Obamedia launches (somewhat late trying to figure out how to mop up after the spill), an ad, using only one tiny phrase of a frightening specter--a world in chaos due to the election of an untried, inexperienced, empty head in an empty suit with an empty heart, who's done nothing since getting to Washinton except run for President.

Americans, I have never been so alarmed, not by Joe Biden, but by our collective stupidity and willingness to fall down and play dead while this steam roller passes over us.
