Obama Chooses Joe Biden as V.P.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_biden

Currently in his sixth term in the Senate, Biden has served for the sixth-longest period among current senators (fourth among Democrats) and is Delaware's longest-serving senator. He is the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee in the 110th Congress. Biden has served in that position in the past, and he has served as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Biden unsuccessfully sought the Democratic Party's presidential nomination in 1988.[2] He again ran in 2008, but withdrew after the caucuses in Iowa on January 3, 2008. Obama announced Biden as his running mate two days before the beginning of the 2008 Democratic National Convention, where the nominations of Obama and Biden are expected to be ratified.

If elected, Biden would be the first Roman Catholic vice president and the first vice president from Delaware.


And even more interesting:

In 1987, Joe Biden ran as a Democratic presidential candidate,.....

Then in September 1987, the campaign ran into serious trouble when he was accused of plagiarizing a speech by Neil Kinnock, then-leader of the British Labour Party.[26] Though Biden had correctly credited the original author in all speeches but one, the one where he failed to make mention of the originator was caught on video.[27]

Within days, it was also discovered that as a first-year law student at Syracuse Law School, Biden had plagiarized a law review article in a class paper he wrote.


More than your typical Dem? Not only does he let others do for him but he steals it. :lol:

Biden is one of the poorest Senators in the Senate & understands what life is really like for regular people in this country. As chairman of the Senate Fgn. Relations Com. his expertise is 2nd to no one! He has one home, wears normally priced shoes & fills his own gas tank. When McCain picks Romney to be his running mate, (just a matter of time) their combined expertise will be how to pick illegal aliens to work on the various mansions! :lol: :devil:

And opposing the Iraq troop surge. Good call Joe.

And this is what he said 2 weeks after 9/11
"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. :shock:

Obama Introduces 'That Scrappy Kid from Scranton'

* Quote From Obama's V.P. introductory speech speaking of Joe Biden;
That’s because he is still that scrappy kid from Scranton who beat the odds;


So now if your are a kid from Scranton the odd of success are against you. I for one find that to be a condescending statement. That said, it's Sunday morning and I have to go finish cleaning my guns before Church.


* Obama's Quote found here,

I agree that my blood pressure will be helped when the election is over. What you have wrong ,of course is that the Patriots will win this year's Superbowl! :P

On a serious note, I will be happy if anyone wins the election beside John McCain, who already is just lying to us like his pal GW!
(He lies to us just like he lied to his sick wife when he had many affairs behind her back. The man is not to be trusted in anything he does or says!)

Coal and corn Syrup more deadly than Terrorists:



At the moment I'm sure that is true but that can change in instant with a large scale attack. Makes you wonder where his priorities are. Frankly I don't need the government protecting me from corn syrup, I need them to protect from a terrorist attack.

What he is trying to convey is that while this administration & John McCain are trying to keep us focused on & scared of, are external threats because they have nothing positive to run on internally, how many members here have had close family members sick from or die of Cancer, Heart Disease or one of the many other horrible diseases that plague our society & for which we all need affordable health care? Now , how many of you have had close family members killed by terrorists that Bush/McCain are trying to keep us focused on? Which is the greater & more plausible threat to you & I?
Shouldn't the greater threat be our priority?

Probaly not many at all which is exactly the point, maybe there's reason for that like Bush is focusing on these problems? This country is going to be under the threat of attack for a very long time if not forever, I personally think a large scale attack is inevitable. Having a leader that thinks corn syrup is more of a threat that terrorists doe snot reassure me.

Getting back to the point I question the validity of statements like that anyway. Certainly if you live next to a coal plant it can't be good for you but living next to any industrial facility can't be good for you either. As far as the corn syrup goes don't eat it. Americas health problems aren't because of corn syrup. It's because they eat a diet of garbage overall and don't get enough exercise. I can tell you my diet doesn't contain much of that and never has but i don't need the government to tell me not to eat it.

I take his comment as a metaphor in which he is trying to point out that we should keep our eyes (& tax money) on the threats that pose the greater "real" threat to most of us. We are all much more likely to die from health issues than terrorist attacks.
(Not that we should ignore the lesser threat of terrorism but just change the presently skewed priorities to the greater threat & spend our tax money more effectively in doing so)

Think of it this way: If you asked any insurance company to write a policy for you insuring you against death from terrorism, I'm willing to bet that the policy would cost pennies.........Now......Ask the same company to insure you against cancer or heart disease!
