    Default Obama is going to face international crisis PROMISES Biden

    Political Radar: Biden to Supporters: "Gird Your Loins", For the Next President "It's Like Cleaning Augean Stables"

    Man I gotta say, I love Biden's honest "foot in mouth" disease. For once I really truly agree with Biden.... wait, I also agreed with him when he said Obama is inexperienced and Mccain and Hillary would be better candidates. I also agreed with him then.

    But what is it that Biden sees coming down the pike? And what role does he think Obama's decisions are going to play?

    "will be tested by an international crisis within his first six months in power and he will need supporters to stand by him as he makes tough, and possibly unpopular, decisions."

    Not cause.

    What is a cause, but a series of events that lead to an outcome? I.e., Obama being elected leading to the rest of the world taking advantage.

    does not equal

    will incur a series of events that lead to international crisis within his first six months in power and he will need supporters to stand by him as he makes tough, and possibly unpopular, decisions.

    Hey, look -- a thread in search of some substance!

    Let's get some content please, not just playing off a sentence in someone's speech. (Do you really think this is what Biden meant?) Rip the guy apart if you want, but with actual content.

    I love how you Disregard Biden's consistent belief that Obama is not up to snuff. He flat out said Obama's presidency will lead to a lot of BS, both through his own policies and the reaction of the rest of the world. What are people drinking that makes them see this as a good thing?

    Where did I disregard Biden's beliefs?

    I simply compared your thread title to the content in the first paragraph of the article.

    See my earlier post.

    I'm not playing off a sentence, I'm playing off the entire premise of the speech and the article. Though I'm sure many just wish they could call my critique of Biden's own words and and beliefs as a great "conspiracy theory", but unfortunately that shoe just doesn't fit this foot. The foot that's in Biden's mouth.

    Not to get sidetracked, It appears Biden does have some sort of information that he is very confident in. Information that says after Obama is elected, the world will fall into instability. His own words, that he wants EVERYONE to hear. Why would Biden say such things? It certainly don't ease the fears some have about Obama's inadequacies. It certainly don't refute what I and a multitude of others have been saying about this presidential candidate.

    The fact of the matter is, vice presidential candidate Joe Biden seems to see the same things many of the non coolaid drinkers do. We have an ongoing struggle in the middle east, and a litany of powder kegs around the world that could go off with the slightest turn toward instability. Israel and Iran, Russia and its neighbors, possibly even China. What will they do when the new leader is elected? How will Obama's foreign policy effect Israel and their will to survive without threat from Iran? It is well known to many analysts of foreign affairs that Israel may be forced to attack Iran before the inauguration if Obama is elected. This coming from Israel's own voice of concern over an Obama presidency, and the belief that he will not support Israel.

    Then we have the likes of Putin. I have full confidence that a man like Putin who values pride, integrity, power, and grit would look at a president like Obama and spit. The leadership will not be perceived by the rest of the world, and our enemies will grow bolder. Perhaps this is what Biden is referring to? Who knows. One thing is for sure. Obama's socialist policies will worsen our economic problems both in our own country and in coordinated efforts around the world. Biden said that we will face worse economic problems, and that we will not like the policies he enacts. His own words...

    I thought the premise was "the shit is likely to hit the fan, and if Obama is president, undoubtedly the GOP is going to continuously sabotage everything he tries to do...can we, perhaps, STOP THAT BULLSHIT for ten fucking seconds and get your HELP instead of you being sore losers so we can NOT GO DOWN IN FLAMES??"

    Paraphrased, of course.

    Have you not noticed that EVERY new president is "tested"?

    Why not also attack Biden for having "forgotten entire textbooks worth of foreign policy material"? I mean, can we really afford someone with senility running the senate and advising the president?
