Un. Be. Lievable. — UPDATED
I told you earlier that Sen. Biden has doo-doo for brains, but I have been rendered speechless for two days by his comments regarding the anticipated Obama regime. I musta looked like a landed fish, with my mouth just opening and closing, but no sound coming out. Quoted passages from blogs.abcnews.com.
“Mark my words,” the Democratic vice presidential nominee warned at the second of his two Seattle fundraisers Sunday. “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. Remember I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”
Where do I begin? How about brilliant young senator getting elected President. Well, that about sums up Obama’s resemblance to President Kennedy.
Of course, Obama is no Jack Kennedy. Jack Kennedy grew up in a wealthy and influential family of the East Coast, going to good schools, travelling widely in Europe and the Middle East as his father carried out various diplomatic duties. He even published his Harvard senior thesis as the book Why England Slept.
Obama attended several schools and travelled widely in his childhood, too. Unfortunately, his travels and school changes were due primarily to his mother’s various marriages, and did not involve Europe, but places like Indonesia. He lived a number of years as a youth in Hawaii, the single most Marxist state in the United States. O also attended Harvard, but as a law student, not an undergrad. He served as editor of the Law Review, but apparently published nothing. If you have obtained access to his early writings (if any), please advise — I would really like to read them.
Jack Kennedy served in World War II — in fact, he volunteered to serve and was at first rejected due to his bad back. His powerful family influences worked to have him accepted into the Navy, where he served in the Pacific Theater, with sufficient distinction to be awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Medal.
Obama’s military service to his country? … chirp … chirp … chirp …
Jack Kennedy initially wanted to become a journalist, but went into politics after his older brother Joseph died. He was elected to the U.S. House and Senate.
Obama appears to have been gunning for a career in politics from a very young age. He worked as a “community organizer” for a few years — essentially, an agitator. This gave him connections in the radical leftist community, and enabled him to work his way into state government in the Daley State. Subsequently, the Chicago Machine helped him get elected to the U.S. Senate.
Jack Kennedy suffered a great deal from his back condition and surgeries to treat it. He received the “Last Rites” of the Catholic Church several times — and remember this was back in the old days, when it was given only in dire circumstances, not like today in which anyone who’s feeling ill can receive it. My point being that he was close to death more than once. In many cases, overcoming physical suffering can hone one’s character in a very positive way. Undoubtedly, Kennedy’s experiences caused him to contemplate his own mortality and the implications thereof, usually a maturing experience.
Obama’s personal suffering? Well, no doubt he suffered psychologically due to his multiple broken childhood homes. But physical suffering and the overcoming of such? Don’t see it. Please advise if you have substantive information about this that I haven’t encountered.
So, yah, Obama, you’re no Jack Kennedy. And actually, I hope you stay that way.
A generated crisis. Well, Joe, who d’ya think might generate that crisis? Allmadeeneejed of Iran? Now, why would he do that? Because O has no experience, no depth, and no foundation? Ya think ole All-mad will find O a temptingly tender target? No, O wouldn’t be his actual target, silly — that would be Israel — the only free country in all of the Middle East — O would be the second bird “killed” with those nukes — metaphorically speaking, Feddies, merely metaphorically speaking.
Or maybe O will pull us out of Iraq straightaway (by the end of 2009, which really is straightaway in logistical terms), as he has promised, and it will go to hell, and we’ll have to go back in under even worse conditions — or even worse, just let them sort it out for themselves. Yah, I guess that would be a crisis, too.
Or perhaps you’re thinking of that delightful Mr. Putin over there in Russia. He might decide to invade all his little satellite states (or maybe just a few) and then what would O do? O dithered for 3 days when it was only Georgia involved, after all. I guess for a multi-target invasion, O might go for up to a couple of weeks of dithering?
Then there’s our backyard neighbor, Mr. Chavez the Marxist. Maybe he’ll invite his good buddy, ole All-mad, to put Iranian nukes on Venezuelan soil. Just as a favor, you understand. To a respected colleague.
Maybe it will be a stay-at-home crisis. Maybe the Democrat-controlled-filibuster-proof Congress will “fix” our financial crisis all better for all time. I better start learning how to milk goats.
“I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate,” Biden said to Emerald City supporters, mentioning the Middle East and Russia as possibilities. “And he’s gonna need help. And the kind of help he’s gonna need is, he’s gonna need you – not financially to help him – we’re gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it’s not gonna be apparent initially, it’s not gonna be apparent that we’re right.”
Yah, Joe, I just thought of 5 scenarios off the top of my head, too. Guess I’m at least as smart as you …. WAIT! OH. MY. GOD. I know what the manufactured crisis will be — God forbid, God most munificently forbid, somehow, O will fall seriously ill or something, and YOU will become Acting President. If that happens, all those lovely gentlemen I mentioned above will certainly take the opportunity to do their respective things. We will be in some super-deep doo-doo then. Where is my shovel — I have to start on that backyard fallout shelter.
“Gird your loins,” Biden told the crowd. “We’re gonna win with your help, God willing, we’re gonna win, but this is not gonna be an easy ride. This president, the next president, is gonna be left with the most significant task. It’s like cleaning the Augean stables, man. This is more than just, this is more than – think about it, literally, think about it – this is more than just a capital crisis, this is more than just markets. This is a systemic problem we have with this economy.”
Well, I guess a Marxist would look at it that way. The reality that this financial crisis was manufactured by the Democrat-controlled Congress in the first place doesn’t mean anything any more.
“I’ve forgotten more about foreign policy than most of my colleagues know, so I’m not being falsely humble with you. I think I can be value added, but this guy has it,” the Senate Foreign Relations chairman said of Obama. “This guy has it. But he’s gonna need your help. Because I promise you, you all are gonna be sitting here a year from now going, ‘Oh my God, why are they there in the polls? Why is the polling so down? Why is this thing so tough?’ We’re gonna have to make some incredibly tough decisions in the first two years. So I’m asking you now, I’m asking you now, be prepared to stick with us. Remember the faith you had at this point because you’re going to have to reinforce us.”
Joe, I do not doubt for one minute that you have forgotten so very much. But what concerns me more is what you remember that just isn’t true.
I don’t think many people will be caring about the polls a year from now. It will be more like “Oh my God, why are those nukes flying this way?”
And what’s that about “reinforcing you?” Is that somehow related to Obama’s directive to his followers to silence all opposition?
“There are gonna be a lot of you who want to go, ‘Whoa, wait a minute, yo, whoa, whoa, I don’t know about that decision’,” Biden continued. “Because if you think the decision is sound when they’re made, which I believe you will when they’re made, they’re not likely to be as popular as they are sound. Because if they’re popular, they’re probably not sound.”
Golly gee, Joe, if unpopularity is the measure of a sound decision, then I guess the best President we have ever had in history is George W. Bush of recent memory. Can we repeal that Constitutional Amendment and get Bush II elected again — just for soundness’ sake?
“You literally can see what these kids are up against, our kids in that region,” Biden said in recalling when his helicopter was forced down due to a snowstorm there. “The place is crawling with al Qaeda. And it’s real.”
“We do not have the military capacity, nor have we ever, quite frankly, in the last 20 years, to dictate outcomes,” he cautioned. “It’s so much more important than that. It’s so much more complicated than that. And Barack gets it.”
Yah, and those video games can get pretty complicated, too. ‘Cause that’s what I think Barack is using for his military insight — unilateral invasion of Pakistan, my ass!
Joe, you are simply Un. Be. Lievable.
UPDATE: Gov. Palin discusses Joe’s comments in the video at this link at Hot Air.
Palin: “If I would said that, you guys would’ve clobbered me!”
Drew Griffin: “You’re right. You’re right.”
I just love the shiv she shoves into Biden when she says “First I think we need to thank Joe for the warning, there.” She shoves it in and Griffin doesn’t seem to notice LOL.
