“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.”
JFK didn’t exactly pass the test either (Bay of Pigs?). So why do we want to elect a guy who will only “embolden our enemies” as the Republicans would say? Wouldn’t we want to elect someone who would scare our enemies, and avoid confrontation at all?
“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.”
So basically, if we elect Barack Obama something bad is going to happen, which will only compound our severe economic difficulties, and perhaps get us into our third standing war (fourth if you count the Korean War), and it’s going to seem like he failed, but we are to have faith in Barack Obama? Verily I say unto thee, on the third year I shall be raised up and my policies vindicated! Why should I believe that?
I’ve heard a lot of people say because of how well he’s campaigned this qualifies him as a good leader. Ralph Nader has been running since 2000! Messing with Nader would be Unsafe At Any Speed.
Addendum: There is no President but Barack! And Biden is his prophet!
