Geography enthusiasts who watched the big Obama-Biden rally in Springfield, Illinois, yesterday were probably a bit curious to hear the town of Scranton, Pennsylvania, mentioned so often in relation to a man from Delaware. Together, Sen. Obama and Sen. Biden mentioned the town five times. Joe Biden has roots in Scranton. He was born there in 1942. But Joe Biden hasn’t lived in Scranton since | Read More »
Someone Explain This To Me? Please?
I have been racking my brain trying to figure why in the World Barack Obama would pick Joe Biden? I know a lot of people are asking the same question and the criticism of it is running rampant but really, why would he make such a critical election costing mistake? I mean this is game over for him and you have to wonder how he | Read More »
The Left Was Against Plagiarists Before They Were for Obama/Biden
Or so I’ve been told. Since the announcement of Joe Binden, last night, as Barack Obama’s VP I’ve been playing with the plagiarism charges, making silly inspirational posters parodies for the website and having some fun until it dawned on me… this is a really serious issue for two reasons — One, is the fact that both of these men Joe Biden and Barack Obama | Read More »
Putting the Biden Pick in Perspective
When Joe Biden entered the United States Senate, John McCain was in his fifth year of captivity at the Hanoi Hilton. Barry Obama was eight when Biden began his Senate career. Nixon was starting his second term as President. Barack Obama’s campaign says Joe Biden is “not of Washington.” Linda Douglass, formerly of ABC News and now an Obama hack (not that it’d be different | Read More »
Neil Kinnock endorses Joe Biden
Lord Neil Kinnock, the former boss of Britain’s Labour [sic] Party, has endorsed Obama’s selection of Joe Biden to be his running mate. “He is a man of immense maturity and unmatched in the Senate, and probably much more widely, as an analyst and advocate in the foreign policy and defence [sic] policy areas. This is significant… why? Oh, you remember. In a 1987 speech | Read More »
Orin Kerr kills with kindness…
…with regard to the Biden pick. Again: oh, the fun that we’ll have. Via PJM, which has a nice round-up.
Apparently, even Obama’s down with the “he’s too inexperienced to lead” meme.
A little thing, but at best a gaffe, and at worst a tacit admission: How Ben Porritt of the McCain campaign put it: “Barack Obama sounded as though he turned over the top spot on the ticket today to his new mentor, when he introduced Joe Biden as the next president. The reality is that nothing has changed since Joe Biden first made his assessment | Read More »
Obama/Biden ’08; Let the Self Destruction Begin
I like Elizabeth’s take in this one at E!! The True Conservative Story. I am really surprised. I think it’s a bad choice. Which I’m happy about, but Wow, what a poor choice. Obama’s camp seems to get dumber by the minute. Of all the names I saw floated over the last few weeks there was one name that I consistently wondered about. Biden’s. Of | Read More »
Let’s Welcome Joe Biden to the Ticket
He himself said Barack Obama was “not ready to lead.” He’s right. So we should stop them by sending some money to John McCain. While we’re at it, there is an opportunity ripe here for RedState readers. I will truly be ashamed if we do not have creative enough talent to put together a 30 second ad spot on this announcement. Your base material is | Read More »
I suppose that Obama plans to wash Biden’s racialist sins away?
And that they plan to have Obama formally forgive Biden for this: After a lengthy critique of Bush administration education policies, Biden attempted to explain why some schools perform better than others — in Iowa, for instance, compared with the District. “There’s less than 1 percent of the population of Iowa that is African American. There is probably less than 4 or 5 percent that | Read More »
Just How Little Change There Is In Obama’s Hope
The non-traditional politician chooses a gaffe machine who has been in the United States Senate since The One was eight years old. The only change there is that Obama has finally chosen to ditch the idea that he is a new type of politician. Obama is part of the failed legacy of liberalism of the past 100 years. There is nothing new here except the | Read More »
Barack Obama Defeats Joe Biden in a Gaffe Competition
I was curious who would win between Barack Obama and Joe Biden in a Gaffe competition. Joe Biden cannot keep his mouth shut. Barack Obama cannot talk without a teleprompter. So what do you think.
Jumping Out of Foxholes
Does anyone ever read Jerry Flint? He’s an old-fashioned “car guy” who has been writing about the auto industry for nearly 50 years now, and he once wrote a column for Forbes about Detroit’s lack of leadership. And he said there are some guys you just know are solid, hard-core leaders. His example was Bob Lutz, who now is a vice chairman at GM. Lutz | Read More »
