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 to the Welsh | 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 that | 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 all the | 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 this Hillary Clinton ad. The | 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 package.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 is | Read More »
As expected, VP choice doesn’t matter
Pretty much no one cares that Biden is the VP nominee for Obama. Of those who do, 13% say it makes them “more likely” to vote for Obama and 10% say it makes them “less likely.” Without seeing the internal numbers, my guess is those 13% are mostly already Obama supporting Democrats who think Biden will help and the 10% are McCain supporting Republicans who | Read More »
Joe Biden: Foreign Policy Savant
Other than comedic relief the only possible reason Barack Obama could have for choosing Joe Biden as his running mate (other than the obvious which is to reassure the political center that he will have a babysitter should he be elected president) is his alleged foreign policy expertise.Biden has a long track record in foreign policy that we will explore in the coming days.Consider:Joe Biden | Read More »
Biden: A masterful stroke of genius from the Obama camp
With the pick of Joe Biden the Obama campaign has managed to put Delaware into play and all of its Electoral Votes. Biden all but guarantees that Obama will win that state.Wow! I am breathless with the boldness of this move.It will certainly require the McCain campaign to go back and rethink its nominee — someone who could possibly counteract the Joementum that this pick | Read More »
