Obama picked Biden as VP.... your thoughts

173 posts in this topic

I am just a little confused because 1 yr ago Joe Biden said Obama had too little experience to be commander in chief but now he chooses him, okay, it's a game a chess and he just took the knight, but now what, should everyone have forgotten about that???? I am not saying McCain's choice next week will be any better and I am not saying one party or the next but help me understand this decision.....

When Biden said that he was Obama's opponent in the Dem presidential primary race, so of course he was going to point out Obama's shortcomings.

Biden's well known for having a big mouth, though he IS often funny and entertaining. Be interesting to see if he can keep from talking himself into corners or controversy during the campaign.

This has to set the record for THE MOST arrogant Presidential ticket in HISTORY.

Just a few problems with Joe that I'm sure the Repubs will capitalize on.

1.) Speech thief.

2.) Hair plugs.

3.) Massive ego.

4.) Insensitive and combative interrogation of Anita Hill.

5.) Voted to give G. Bush authorization to go into Iraq.

6.) Voted YES on reauthorizing the PATRIOT Act.

7.) Two DUI's

B. Hussein Nobama is a lot of things but crazy isn't one of them. To have HRC "a heartbeat away" from the presidency would be suicide.

We'll have a couple months for the RNC to revisit how arrogant Biden (and his pal Kennedy) was in the hearings for Supreme Court candidates.

I don't see any balance on this ticket. Both are extreme left and the presidential candidate still has no skins. Anyone can call for change but I have not seen a plan.

So when fellow Dems or Reps point out your short comings, but they don't get the nomination, all those short comings magically go away? Because Biden didn't get the nomination, does that mean BHO now has more experience? I don't get it at all..

You must be referring to the fact that Biden and Cheney are both Vietnam era draft dodgers.

Not much "change" there. crazy

That's right. Arrogance has never been in short supply among presidential tickets. Bush/Cheney had (have) plenty; certainly no shortage of arrogance on the part of Clinton/Gore, either.

Biden is a decent choice for Obama...he needed to add some sort of foreign policy experience...that probably put the governors that were on his list in the second tier of his choices. And Lieberman probably wouldn't have been met with open arms among the liberal base.

And just like those on the right are picking at Biden now, those on the left will pick at whoever McCain picks.

My problem with BOTH parties is the Dems keep tracking FURTHER left, almost into liberal fanaticism/tree hugging WACKO ville and the right keeps going Further right and further away from conservatism.

Its almost as they each keep going further apart to combat each other more and more.

Too bad Ron Paul or the Libertairan party doesnt have a snow balls chance in.... of winning.

Gee, I wish Biden & Kennedy had been a LOT MORE arrogant during the Supreme Court nominations. Then maybe we wouldn't have a far-right court threatening to take over this country. Which is the biggest reason, by far, that I will probably vote for Democratic presidents for the next 3-4 elections.

And it's easy, & intellectually lazy, to call everyone in the Democratic party an "extreme" leftist. Perhaps you should check out some Socialist web sites, or European politicians, so you can understand what "extreme" really is. It ain't these two!

I am not a political buff, but I am watching the announcment speech delivered by Obama and Biden at the moment. I must say that it very refreshing to listen to a speech delivered well after listening to GWB fumble his words for 8 years.

Right, wrong, or otherwise GWB was a horrible public speaker which made it tough for me to even take him seriously.

I watch Dave Letterman and I don't think I have seen the same fumble twice in his "Great Moments in Presidential Speech" segment.

I'll give you that a great speaker is more enjoyable to listen to,but it tells me nothing about how he will lead the nation.Our current Presidents shortcomings as a speaker don't bother me nearly as much as his shortcomings as President.

Biden did a great job of expressing how John Mcsane has been, is and always will be in lockstep with the bushs and cheneys of the world. I think biden was the right pick for obama and this will only solidify their/our victory in november. Good luck to wade, sandmannd, gunflint, and others in their travels over the next 8 or so years. What country will you guys be moving to?? I hear Iceland is nice.

Where the heck do you get infanticide from. Explain how these liberals hate America or is it just words thrown out there, that have no validity to them, in the hope that someone might be dumb enough to believe them words.

Who said anything about leaving the greatest country on earth. I said it before and I'll say it again. McCain is no better than Obama just older and more experienced. I've already publicly conceded the election to liberals. What am I going to do for the next 8 years? Good question. For the next four I'll have the luxury of complaining about every program, executive decision, and legislative screwup that comes down the pike. And I won't even have to come up with alternative ideas. Just like the liberals over the last 8 years. Hopefully the following 4 years I'll be able to support a true conservative but I don't hold out much hope for that.

    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one. 
    • Great pictures by all that have shared thus far!    Three of my best or my favorites anyway...        
    • I was out and about wetland areas this weekend and saw lots of waterfowl.  Many trumpeter swans, high flying tundra swans, gadwalls, shovelers, a few wood ducks, ring necks, hooded mergansers, , a pair of goldeneyes, and a loon.  I also saw many sandhill cranes.
