How quickly the balance on the political stage shifts… last week it was “Senator Government” aka Senator Barack Obama inadvertently saying he wanted to “…just spread the wealth around.” A very Marxist/Socialist un-American philosophy to take from the wealthy and give to the disadvantaged.
On Monday, “Senator Gaffe” aka Senator Joe Biden, Obama’s vice-presidential choice spoke, unaware there were media types present, "Mark my words. It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy" Biden said to a roomful of donors.
He continued, "The world is looking. 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," Biden continued. "Watch, we're going to have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”
That “guy” Senator Biden referred to is none other than Senator Barack Obama, perhaps the next president of the United States. Unless the voters take a good look at the 'brilliant 47-year old senator' who Joe Biden himself criticized earlier during the Democratic primaries saying Obama was unprepared to become the chief executive, adding that the Oval Office is not a place for on-the-job training.
Afterward, the McCain camp released this statement: “There has been no harsher critic of Barack Obama’s lack of experience than Joe Biden. Biden has denounced Barack Obama’s poor foreign policy judgment and has strongly argued in his own words what Americans are quickly realizing -- that Barack Obama is not ready to be President.”
Obviously, the McCain camp is biased, but really, is Obama ready to be the next president? That’s for the voters to decide. While Biden’s prediction is scary, would he say the same if McCain were elected?
