A dissenting view on the Biden selection
I’ve been encountering much glee at Redstate over the choice of Joe Biden as Obama’s running mate, but I cannot join in that glee.While not a spectacular pick (if indeed Obama has such a pick available), Biden is a solid defensive pick. And given the overall Democratic tide this year, defense is a rational tactic at this time.
Pay no attention to Joe Biden’s son, Hunter. It’s totally not fair game. He’s only making money off his dad’s connections, that’s all.
Here is a story most of the MSM is going to run away from as fast as possible.The son of Barack Obama’s vice presidential pick, Sen. Joe Biden, is a top partner at a Washington law firm that has lobbied his father’s office, a family tie that could prove embarrassing for a campaign that has positioned itself as fighting lobbyists and special interests in Washington.In | Read More »
Biden- Not a Bad Pick, BUT
Let’s go down memory lane a bit, as this will help to put Obama’s selection of Joe Biden in proper perspective.JFK- picked his convention opponent and Senate powerhouse, Lyndon Johnson., to the consternation of his supporters. JFK acted in the overriding interest of electoral victory.Reagan-the magnanimous Gipper chose his primary opponent, a selection reflecting great self-confidence. And a practical one, too, building a needed bridge | Read More »
Biden – Plagiarism And Prevarication You Can Believe In
I’ve never had much use for Joe Biden. I simply can’t get past Biden’s plagiarism and Biden’s portrayal of his academic record which you can see in the following video:Four of the boasts Biden made about his academic record are false:Full Academic Scholarship – Biden actually received a partial scholarship from the university based on financial need.Top Half of His Class – Biden finished 76th | Read More »

So . . . Biden
I admit it. I signed up for the text message and the e-mail. I got the e-mail at 3:50 am on Saturday morning and did not read it–as I was asleep. I never got the text message. It would appear that there were problems with the transmission of the text message. Not exactly the best way to show the campaign organization’s competence in the prelude | Read More »
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?

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?

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 that | Read More »
