Biden Guarantees Crisis If Obama Elected
Wow! Never though I'd create that headline.
Because I live a few short blocks from the US Capitol, my take on Biden's truly weird Cassandra prediction might differ from yours.
What do you think Biden meant by this?
"Mark my words," the Democratic vice presidential nominee warned at the second of his two Seattle fundraisers Sunday. "It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We're about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don't remember anything else I said. Watch, we're gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy."
"I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate," Biden said to Emerald City supporters, mentioning the Middle East and Russia as possibilities. "And he's gonna need help. And the kind of help he's gonna need is, he's gonna need you - not financially to help him - we're gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it's not gonna be apparent initially, it's not gonna be apparent that we're right."
Here's some more:
"This guy has it. But he's gonna need your help. Because I promise you, you all are gonna be sitting here a year from now going, 'Oh my God, why are they there in the polls? Why is the polling so down? Why is this thing so tough?' We're gonna have to make some incredibly tough decisions in the first two years. So I'm asking you now, I'm asking you now, be prepared to stick with us. Remember the faith you had at this point because you're going to have to reinforce us."
"There are gonna be a lot of you who want to go, 'Whoa, wait a minute, yo, whoa, whoa, I don't know about that decision'," Biden continued. "Because if you think the decision is sound when they're made, which I believe you will when they're made, they're not likely to be as popular as they are sound. Because if they're popular, they're probably not sound."
Biden emphasized that the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border is of particular concern, with Osama bin Laden "alive and well" and Pakistan "bristling with nuclear weapons."
Some of the scariest parts:
"And he's gonna need help."
"And the kind of help he's gonna need is, he's gonna need you - not financially to help him - we're gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him."
"Because it's not gonna be apparent initially, it's not gonna be apparent that we're right."
Right about what, Joe?
Reinstating the draft?
Some kind of Israel v Iran/ Iran v Israel bloodbath?
Another 9/11 type attack on US soil? (Like, in my neighborhood?)
Using limited nukes against Pakistan?
Creating a new alliance with Chavez & Friends and replacing the dollar with Ameros?
Raising taxes a zillion percent?
What gives, Biden?
Spit it out, Joe!
Here's the weirdest part:
"I probably shouldn't have said all this because it dawned on me that the press is here," he joked.
This crap is funny, Joe?
Is this whole "Be Afraid, But Trust Us" speech just another Biden/ Emily Litella "Never Mind" moment?
Or is Joe Biden, himself, The October Surprise?
Number of days since Donna Brazile promised to leave the party if superdelegates decided the Dem nominee:
Donna has known for a long time now that superdelegates would be necessary for any Dem candidate to win the nomination this year. Ask Donna when she intends to keep her promise.
Don't hold your breath awaiting a reply.
Here's Donna now...
