Obama Scared Spitless

Picking Joe Biden for his running mate shows that recent events in Russia have thrown Obama into a panic. Just as he didn’t have a high enough pay grade to determine when “personhood” is created (strangely, in 2001 he seemed to think he did. Ed Morrissey wonders when Obama was demoted?), now he as well admits he’s over his head in foreign policy, too.

It is disbelievable that Barack Obama, chanting his mantra of nebulous change, has now dug deep into the Democrat bag of old bones and come up with a defining dinosaur. There is not one tired, old Democrat program that Joe Biden has not been a party to.

Reforming Social Security? Good ‘ole Joe will be against reforming it, until the day (not long until 2016) it dies. St. FDR in Heaven won’t let that happen!

Reforming Medicare? It’s already dead, but Joe still doesn’t want to change it. I’m sure Joe thinks that St. LBJ will raise it like the Phoenix from its funeral pyre.

Joe Biden, like another Democrat fossil John Kerry, was for war in Iraq before he was against it. Democrats now applaud him for having the fortitude to bail out on his first choice as soon as the going got tough. In fact, Joe Biden was a leader of the valiant charge of the “surrender monkeys.”

With the political and military acumen that typifies Democrats, Joe Biden pronounced the “surge” a failure just as it was proving just the opposite. Joe Biden on the surge:

The surge isn't going to work either tactically or strategically,” Biden told the Boston Globe last summer. “Tactically it isn't going to work because ... our guys go in and secure a neighborhood, but because we don't have enough troops, we have to turn it over to the Iraqis, and they can't hold it or won't hold it.

More Democrat wishful thinking? They wanted the surge to fail in the worst way.

As usual, Obama and Biden are applauded by the Main Stream Media for having the courage of their lack of convictions.

Both have neither the judgment nor the ability to make tough choices, but Democrats call cowardice and indecision virtues.

When asked by George Stephanopoulos if he had said “The presidency is not something that lends itself to on-the-job training,” concerning whether Obama was ready to be President, Joe Biden said one of the few things he has gotten right: "I think I stand by that statement."

I’ll bet he won’t stand by it today.

That was one of the few signs Joe Biden has shown of having any sense. While he was dumb enough to get caught for plagiarism, he was doubly dumb by plagiarizing an ineffective British Labour leader, Neil Kinnock. For those who protest that Biden’s plagiarism was accidental, we have voluminous evidence that Biden is a stranger to truth from his undergraduate days:

Within days, it was also discovered that as a first-year law student at Syracuse Law School, Biden had plagiarized a law review article in a class paper he wrote. Though the dean of the law school in 1988 as well as Biden's former professor played down the incident of plagiarism, they did find that Biden drew "chunks of heavy legal prose directly from" the article in question. Biden said the act was inadvertent due to his not knowing the proper rules of citation, and Biden was permitted to retake the course after receiving a grade of F, which was subsequently dropped from his record. Biden also released his undergraduate grades, which started off poorly and remained unexceptional. Further, when questioned by a New Hampshire resident about his grades in law school Biden had claimed falsely to have graduated in the "top half" of his class, (when he actually graduated 76th in a class of 85) that he had attended on a full scholarship, and had received three degrees. In fact he had received two majors, History and Political Science, and a single B.A., as well as a half scholarship based on financial need.

Joe Biden and Barack Obama.

What’s changed?
