Obama Picks Biden For VP — No Balls In This Choice

Saturday, August 23, 2008

Remember the infamous Clinton ad of a phone ringing in the White House at 3 A.M? Well it was 3 A.M. Saturday morning when the Obama campaign finally released the news that Joe Biden was Obama’s VP pick. So I guess the media is ready for that 3 A.M. call — but the jury is still out on whether Barack ever will be.

Obama teased the press all last week saying the announcement would be a text message by 3P.M. Friday. They waited another 12 hours to announce so as to guarantee media saturation on the slowest news day of the week!

Barack Obama has proved once again that he has no balls. Battling criticism that he has no foreign policy experience he picks Biden for his. Who cares.

The Democrats and all the left have believed that Dick Cheney has been Bush’s shadow President — Now Obama wants Biden to have that title?

Safe choices don’t make you win the Presidency. Obama should have picked Hillary Clinton – a brave, ballsy choice instead of the twice failed Presidential candidate who has dissed Obama in the primaries.

“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” Biden said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”

“Is he ready?” George Stephanopoulos asks Biden at an August 2007 debate. “You said, ‘I think he can be ready but right now, I don’t believe he is. The presidency is not something that lends itself to on-the-job training.'” “I think that I stand by the statement,” Biden says, seen standing directly next to Obama.

The staged speech in Springfield today will be the only time the two will be campaigning together – that’s party unity for you.

Obama’s choice in Biden contradicts everything he has stood for during the primaries. Biden represents old Washington politics and is 66 years old. Where’s the “new” politics and change that Obama has been preaching about?

From Obama may decry lobbyist cash (or at least federal lobbyist cash), but Biden has taken $344,400 from lobbyists since 1997 — making lobbyists the 10th biggest contributing industry.

Jake Tapper over at ABC has his take on Biden’s Lobbyist money.

Joe Biden is known for his stupid gaffes but when Obama introduced him today he said,

“So let me introduce you to the next President,” he said, quickly catching and correcting the mistake, “Vice President of the United States of America…”

Maybe Obama really believes Biden, that Barack has no experience to be President?

Biden in his speech gaffed by calling Obama, “Barack America”

The RNC has launched the Biden Gaffe Clock.

The Olympics may be over but now the real games begin: The Democratic Convention, followed by the Republican Convention — bullshit alert ahead for the next two weeks.
