Game time: Barrak Hussein Obama and Joe Biden.

Obama picks Biden for veep

WASHINGTON – Barack Obama selected Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware late Friday night to be his vice presidential running mate, according to a Democratic official, balancing his ticket with a seasoned congressional veteran well-versed in foreign policy and defense issues.

Biden, 65, has twice sought the White House, and is a Catholic with blue-collar roots, a generally liberal voting record and a reputation as a long-winded orator.

Across more than 30 years in the Senate, he has served at various times not only as chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee but also as head of the Judiciary Committee, with its jurisdiction over anti-crime legislation, Supreme Court nominees and Constitutional issues.

So Mr. Hussein Obama picks a 65 yr old CAREER Politician that has been involved in Government for most of his life as his running mate. But wait.. hasn’t Obama been wanting “Change” doesn’t he say McCain is has been in Government too long and is the problem? I am soooo confused now…

IMO Biden is a better pick than some he could have made, but I think Biden’s liberal voting record and his views on several KEY issues will (or at least should) sink the Obama run. The problem will be those “White, religious, gun toting and bitter” voters that will see this as a “Olive branch” I see it as pandering and I see it as an effort to placate the voters that can’t vote for an inexperienced liberal.

I also think Biden’s “Foreign Policy Experience” will undoubtedly be used by the media as a plus. I don’t know enough about his “experience” but I will be looking. There will be a much closer look at Biden now by bloggers, and media. we will see if he can pass that test.

NOW on the other hand we have John McCain that is supposedly choosing Mitt Romney for Veep:

Romney veep speculation swirls

Mark Halperin set off tremors in the political world last night by reporting via two Republicans that John McCain had settled on Mitt Romney to be his running mate.

Top sources in McCainworld, though, say this morning that no final decision has been made.

There are mixed signals at this point as to whether Romney has emerged as the favorite.

That seems to be the “body language” from the small group of aides who McCain is consulting on the decision, a GOP source says.

And that interpretation was reinforced when word spread among Romney loyalists last night that the vice presidential rollout tour included Michigan.

So if McCain chooses Romney, he is choosing a business leader, a “Republican” and a man with experience running a state. not just sitting in a chair and voting yea or nay on legislation, not just bitching and whining about the current administration but actually running a STATE.

I think this is a winning ticket. I am not jumping for joy, but I can vote for McCain/Romney and have a glimmer of hope for the future.

  1. McCain needs a strong running mate; that’s a no-brainer.

    Obama chose a fellow far-left whacko that will bring him some legitimacy via experience. The bad part is that Biden will bring experience from the left. That’s like hiring France to be in charge of national defense.

    Putting the left in charge of our government is like putting Charles Manson in charge of an old folks home, and giving him a truckload of chain saws.

  2. Boy, this is gonna be interesting. There will now be 2 blowhards who spend more time listening to themselves speak than they do breathing.

    Prepare for fodder of great entertainment value :smiling:

  3. JJ, Couldn’t have said it better. BUT is Romney strong enough? IMO he is the BEST we can hope for at this time.

    Gawfer, Yep a lot of entertainment value and fodder for weeks.

    TF, It is hope, that’s for sure. I would have certainly been happier if McCain picked Hunter or Tancredo, BUT I am not sure that would have helped. It would have made me, you and a host of other conservatives feel better, but it might have made Obama/Biden a shoe in. I do think Romney is an adequate compromise. IMO of course.

    Kate, I’m lost on the belt buckle thing :straightfaced: I do think he had a Border security plan that I could live with.

  4. Lost? Well, that is cuz you are out there on the left coast. 😉

    Here in Podunk, TN…the buckle of the Bible Belt…don’cha know….LOTS of Southern Baptists have issues with the Mormonism. And there are a LOT of Suth’in Baptists!

  5. At this point in time, I think a Bushwack/Texas Fred or Texas Fred/Bushwack type ticket is exactly what we need. Hey….we got four years…. 🙂
