Biden screws up and tells the truth

From The New York Post:

Joe Biden warned that America's enemies would test Barack Obama with an international crisis within six months if he's elected president - a shocking comment John McCain eagerly pounced on yesterday to claim Obama isn't ready to be commander-in-chief.

"Mark my words," Biden told donors at a Seattle fund-raiser Sunday night.

"It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We're about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America.

"Watch. We're going to have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.

"And he's going to need help . . . to stand with him. Because it's not going to be apparent initially; it's not going to be apparent that we're right."

OK, let's translate. Barack Obama is a know-nothing, done-nothing radical leftist whose instinctive reaction to any situation is to come down on the side which is against America. He has consistently indicated that he will be the best friend that America's enemies have ever had in the White House (surpassing even Jimmy Carter).

Because of this our enemies will naturally think that they have carte blanche to run wild across the world stage. Rogue states like Iran and North Korea will sign deals with the Obama administration in which we will give them billions in various kinds of aid in exchange for their promise to abandon their nuclear weapons programs. Promises which will never be honored, just as the promise that Clinton extracted from Kim Jong-il to abandon his nuclear program was never honored.

Then sometime toward the end of his first two years in office when Iran tests its first atomic bomb (possibly on Tel Aviv) Obama will have a massive crisis on his hands. Now the crisis, from Obama's point of view, will not be containing a nuclear Iran. Rather it will be spinning the situation so that Obama doesn't look like the abject fool that he in fact is.

Also during the first two years of Obama's presidency terrorists who are very aware of Obama's anti-war positions and the fact that he wants to return to a law enforcement approach in our anti terrorism efforts will execute some spectacular 9/11 type attack either on American soil or against American interests overseas (like a military base or an embassy).

Then again Obama will have a massive crisis on his hands - which will be explaining why this kind of thing didn't happen after 9/11 when Bush was president and our troops were fighting Islamofascists on Middle Eastern soil but is now happening again on his watch.

And then there will be China and Russia. China will annex the Spratley Islands or invade Taiwan and Russia will reoccupy all of Georgia, Ukraine and the Balkan Peninsula. The crisis which Obama will face here will be explaining why allowing totalitarian states to advance by swallowing up democracies (think Hitler and Czechoslovakia) is really good for America and the world.

Of course the American people, knuckle-dragging louts that we are, will have a hard time understanding why surrendering to every enemy that comes down the pike while doing nothing as our people are slaughtered and our allies are destroyed is really all in our best interests.

After all after the first two years even the bloom will have started to fade off of that Soviet-style "free" health care.

So of course Joe Biden is engaging in a bit of preemptive begging, pleading with the Democrat base to remember how much they love him and the little messiah now when the feces has well and truly hit the fan and a night traveler could navigate from one end of the nation to the other by the light of Obama's burning effigies.

Or we could do the sane thing and elect someone who our enemies already fear and who they would not be tempted to test. A man like John McCain who for all his faults is a patriot who understands the use of military force and who had no illusions about the nature of the world we live in and the kind of people our adversaries are.

Isn't it interesting that we have Biden screwing up and telling the truth about this coming right on the heels of Obama's accidently telling Joe the plumber that his economic philosophy was nothing more or less than Marxism.

Did Biden resent Obama's gaffe getting all the attention when putting your foot in your mouth was supposed to be Biden's territory?
