…a one-term, a guy who has served for four years in the Senate. … I don’t recall hearing a word from Barack about a plan or a tactic.”
Now, months later, Joe Biden is the selection to be the candidate for Vice President for the Democrats and Barack Obama’s running mate. Still Joe Biden tells America that Obama isn’t ready to be President of the United States.
And what Joe actually tells us is a good bit scary:
Just what is Joe telling us here? That if Obama’s elected something big is going to happen? Something tragic? People are going to die? Just because those evil forces that we know exist out there in the world want to see just how weak Barack Obama is? This is terrible!
Not only is Joe Biden predicting terrible happenings somewhere in the world, he’s insinuating that our response will at best be misunderstood, even by our own people! Worrisome news indeed. And coming from his running mate at that!
Sadly I believe Biden to be right. Joe Biden is prone to run his mouth and that has gotten him into trouble numerous times, misstating facts and even stealing a line or two from someone else as his own… but here I believe him.
Obama is inexperienced. Obama is naive. And I don’t trust Obama’s judgment on responding to a tragic event as far as I can throw him. Some of what he has put into words for public consumption on his thoughts about our security and defense doesn’t send a tingle up my leg, but a shiver down my spine.
Maybe that’s why a poll of our servicemen and women found the support for John McCain to be about 68%. Even running about 63% of the Hispanics in the military supporting McCain, with only the black military voter supporting Obama. But even among blacks in the military support for McCain is about 20%, far higher than the general public, which is very telling to me.
It’s an evil world and one that we must remain vigilant in. Change does sound good, especially after such a long and trying time as we’ve had with Iraq and the war on terror, but that war is not over. Those people that sought to do us harm back in September of 2001 still seek to do us harm today.
Do we choose inexperienced idealism over sound tried and true leadership at a time such as this? I hope not, for we have so much at stake, and so much to lose.
Anyway, we played that change game two years ago and how’d that work? Not too good!
There are those during this campaign that seek to distract us from these issues and interject side issues and even outlandish meanings to remarks in order for you and I not to focus on the importance of our future leadership. Even over the last few days throwbacks to a different era have been brought up to try a scare naïve people into fearful reactions. Socialism is very real and it’s a very real part of Barack Obama’s upbringing and philosophy, but out in Kansas City they try to tell us Socialist is some sort of “code word” for “Black”! Do people not already know Obama is African American or “Black”?
To bring that up is to disguise what Obama is actually all about. The Obama campaign has been very good at disguising what Obama is all about. Hopefully the clouds will part and the light of truth will shin on this campaign. And maybe people, good people too, will wake up and see who the man before them truly is. The truth is out there already… Google it.
Shame on you Lewis Diuguid. Shame on you for using those scare tactics of the past.
