Biden Is an Execrable Choice

Posted by libhom Saturday, August 23, 2008

Will Biden steal part of Edwards' 2004 acceptance speech?

Is Barack Obama completely out of his mind?

Obama's choice of an idiot like Joe Biden shows terrible judgement. The one thing that did the most damage to Clinton's campaign was her 2002 vote to authorized a genocidal war of aggression against Iraq. Biden voted the same way as Ms. Clinton (and John McCain).

The war against Iraq was both a war of aggression and an act of genocide, resulting in well over 1.2 million Iraqi deaths. Under international law, every Senator who voted for the law is subject to prosecution for crimes against humanity in every country on the planet, with the possible exception of the US (the courts would have to decide whether congressional immunity or international treaty obligations take precedence).

Can Obama really expect liberals and progressives to campaign, much less vote, for a war criminal like Biden?

Biden offers very little that is positive. His behavior on most foreign policy issues has been ignorant, arrogant, and foolish. Biden made an idiot of himself in 2006 when he offered a de facto partition plan on Iraq even though that is none of his business nor any of our business. The only people who should be weighing in on the issue are Iraqi.

Why would Biden do such an arrogant and inappropriate thing? Why would he do something so counterproductive? It's the same reason he voted for the illegal and unAmerican war in Iraq.

Biden is bought and paid for by Big Oil companies that want the Middle East carved up into ever smaller and less viable states that can be controlled from Texas.

Also, Biden has made an ass of himself on the conflict between Russia and Georgia. He spewed McCain-style tough rhetoric on the issue, neglecting to mention that the Iraq War has left our country close to powerless militarily, something the Russians are keenly aware of. From politicsusa.com:

“The war that began in Georgia is no longer about that country alone. It has become a question of whether and how the West will stand up for the rights of free people throughout the region. The outcome there will determine whether we realize the grand ambition of a Europe that is whole, free, and at peace.”

He also called for the Russian troops to get out, and international peace keepers to come in, “Russia must make good on President Medvedev’s commitment to immediately withdraw Russian troops to their positions before the current fighting began. We also need a truly independent and international peacekeeping force in Georgia’s conflict regions. And we must help the people of Georgia to rebuild their country and preserve its democratic institutions.”

The only thing bigger than Biden's mouth is his ego. I just hope that man's open trap doesn't get us into a nuclear war with Russia.

Biden is a notorious racist too. During his presidential campaign, he made a horribly racist comment about previous black presidential candidates. Jack and Jill politics has a detailed summary of Biden's long racist history. The last thing the Obama campaign needs is to have to devote time and energy to spinning a racist comment from Biden's loose lips.

Then, there is the other thing Biden is famous for: being a serial plagiarist.

It's not like anyone is going to vote for Obama because he put Joementum II on his ticket. Deleware isn't exactly a swing state, and Biden fails to appeal to swing voters in the center, while he alienates swing voters on the left.

Biden as Obama's VP pick is truly disturbing.

  3. I think Biden was a truly stupid choice and may very well win McCain the election.

    I don't get it...a racist, elitist Hawk. I'm from Massachusetts, I can afford to write in a vote...not that any of matters one piece of dooky. I'm so disgusted.

  5. Pragmatic...he will help with the Pennslytucky vote. Like it or not but he is not really a bad choice in the grand scheme of things. Now Clinton on the other hand would have been a disaster. Give it some time. It is going to give us some help nationally in the end. PS: Homo here.

  7. teach: I can't tell what your view is on the subject, but here is mine. If someone murdered my mother and later said that was a mistake, I would not let them off the hook for it. Biden has murdered a lot of Iraqi mothers.

    pagan: Biden is like an unpaid political ad for McKinney as far as I'm concerned.

    travelingman: I just don't see how I could possibly vote for someone who, under international law, deserves a life prison sentence for crimes against humanity. Every politician who voted for the Iraq war, Biden, Clinton, and McCain included, falls into that category.

    Obama's lead has evaporated because so many former supporters on the left are now undecided. Why did Obama try so hard to discourage liberals and progressives from voting for him?

  9. Libhom, much as I agree that the Iraq war was criminal, if every Democrat who voted for it was off the list for VP, there wouldn't be much left to choose from. At least Biden said it was a mistake to have voted for it.

    I'm not sure who would have been a better VP choice, but out of the three on the short list (the others being Bayh and Kaine) he was the best pick. I kinda wanted Richardson myself but I think Biden will do the job. I just hope Obama can get back on message and win back support from those who may have been recently defecting. Because whether or not Obama has fulfilled all of our dreams, he is certainly better than McCain by miles.

  11. mauigirl: Over 20 Democratic Senators voted against the criminal war in Iraq, and there is nothing to say that the VP has to be a Senator. All of the choices on the shortlist were reprehensible.
