Biden Choice

Joe Biden is Barry's choice VP.

Biden is anything but a representative of hope or change, he simply plays to what the polls have identified as Obama's weakness - experience. Obama could not run the risk of picking a running mate that was an on the edge type of candidate, or a dark horse, or pick someone from an important state, nope, the polls say one of the biggest drawbacks of Obama is experience. So, Obama went with an ornery old male insider with a big mouth and ego to match.

Here is an excerpt from a meeting with staffers that illustrates this guys foreign policy experience.
At the Tuesday-morning meeting with committee staffers, Biden launches into a stream-of-consciousness monologue about what his committee should be doing, before he finally admits the obvious: "I'm groping here." Then he hits on an idea: America needs to show the Arab world that we're not bent on its destruction. "Seems to me this would be a good time to send, no strings attached, a check for $200 million to Iran," Biden declares. He surveys the table with raised eyebrows, a How do ya like that? look on his face.
The staffers sit in silence. Finally somebody ventures a response: "I think they'd send it back." Then another aide speaks up delicately: "The thing I would worry about is that it would almost look like a publicity stunt." Still another reminds Biden that an Iranian delegation is in Moscow that very day to discuss a $300 million arms deal with Vladimir Putin that the United States has strongly condemned.
This guy is a gaffe-o-matic, he will add to the campaign trail and draw attention with his remarks.
"If I'm the nominee, Republicans will be sorry.... The next Republican that tells me I'm not religious I'm going to shove my rosary beads down their throat.... And we have played into the hands of the Republicans. We've allowed so-called social issues to be so divisive."--Joe Biden, October 22, 2005

Joe Biden is a loudmouth jerk and there's no way he's going to be able to hide his elitist attitude. This is a big negative for Obama.
