Biden Will Be Trouble For Democrats

Slate is far from a partisan mouthpiece. For those that were too young to remember, here's an article that revisits Joe Biden's plagiarism. This piece is an in-depth examination of the offenses and why they were particularly important at that juncture in time, as well as today.

As I have said repeatedly, Biden brings experience that Obama just doesn't have and will not get before November. But with that experience comes the deeds of a career politician, some already known and others, yet to be discovered.

As Michael Crowley wrote in the New Republic in October 2001 (a month after the attacks on 9/11), “Then he [Biden] hits on an idea: America needs to show the Arab world that we're not bent on its destruction. "Seems to me this would be a good time to send, no strings attached, a check for $200 million to Iran," Biden declares. He surveys the table with raised eyebrows, a How do ya like that? look on his face.”

Ah yes … this is the real Joe Biden. What does he bring to the Obama Campaign? Easy … a clear win for McCain so long as John doesn’t screw it up.

Honestly, if there was one guy in the whole of Congress, who I could point to and say, “See? That’s why I hate socialist politicians!” It would be Joe Biden. That Barack Osama thinks that Biden has the requisite foreign policy experience does more to illustrate Barack’s lack of judgment than any other single factor thus far in the election cycle.

I found an interesting question at another blog today … Allowing that Michelle loves America (after she used to hate it), why does she advocate changing it? So far, none of the network talking heads has asked that question, but I know deep in my heart that the Sunset Man can answer it for us.

Maybe it's similar to the situation I often find myself in.

Mrs. Sunsett loves our house and it's a nice house, not too big not too small, comfortable and modern. Be that as it may, she always has a list of things she wants to do with it, like painting the same room we painted two years ago, put a window in here, change the drapes there, etc.

LA .. recommend you delete the preceeding comment F A S T ... before Mrs. Sunset sees it. Criticism, no matter how mild, is never tolerated among the female species.

While you always have access to our sofa, it is still a long way to drive to work in the morning.

Mrs. Sunsett read my blog? How utterly hilarious.

I can't get her to sit down for a minute. She has two speeds, fast and stop. Right now, she is stopped on the couch, snoozing. But I guarantee you, when here eyes open in a little while, she will hit the floor running. She makes me tired thinking about it.

Blogs? She's got no time for stinkin blogs.

Hi LAS !

Amerloque cannot help but grin.

Several years ago French President Jacques Chirac called his wife Bernadette La Tortue (The Tortoise). In public, yet.

Just a bit of cultural relief (grin) as all of us turn back to watching the implosion of the Democratic Party.

Best,
L'Amerloque
