Joe Biden: Obama’s Inexperience Will Prompt Terrorists To Test Us (Audio)
ABC News’ Matthew Jaffe Reports: Senator Joe Biden, D-Del., on Sunday guaranteed that if elected, Sen. Barack Obama., D-Ill., will be tested by an international crisis within his first six months in power and he will need supporters to stand by him as he makes tough, and possibly unpopular, decisions.
Gird your loins…Mark my words, 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, the Middle East and Russia are 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.”
Isn’t this an argument for electing someone with more experience?
Why should we elect a man who will embolden our enemies and push us to the brink of disaster?
Biden seems convinced that electing John McCain will make our enemies abroad much less sanguine about provoking us — which is one of the best arguments yet heard for electing McCain.
Even worse, Biden admits that an Obama administration will likely fumble the ball. “It’s not going to be apparent that we’re right.” Really? Why not?
I’d say that Biden (perhaps in yet another alcohol-induced moment ) is admitting that Obama will deviate from long-held principles of American foreign policy and diplomacy, knows he plans to, and expects to reap a whirlwind of disapproval because of that.
Where will that be most likely to occur, given Obama’s previous political alliances with people like Rashid Khalidi?
It’s no coincidence that every megalomaniacal, tyrannical, tin-horn dictator and terrorist in the world has expressed a strong preference for seeing the Obama in the White House.
