Obama & Biden team up

Obama & Biden team up

When it comes to Obama’s choice of Veep, he made a strategic selection. Obama is the Junior Senator from Illinois, however Biden is a Senior level Senator that has chaired some of the most powerful Senate committees in Washington. Biden now chairs the Foreign Relations committee.

Biden was the youngest Senator ever elected to office, he’s served more than 35 years in the Senate. In fact, he is in his 6th term of service to the U.S. Senate. Biden, previously chaired the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee.


What I like most about Biden is his “matter-of-fact” style and manner of speaking. You always get the sense he’s being blunt & direct with you. Moreover, he’s a tough guy whose not afraid to mix it up Washington style. He seems to be the right guy to take on the Republican attack machine, and clap back with an array of facts.

Biden, in May had a humorous sound byte about Bush breaking an age old foreign policy principle: “foreign policy stops at the water’s edge.” That means we as Americans don’t speak publicly about foreign policy when we are overseas. Well, when “G-Dub” went to celebrate Israel’s 60th anniversary, and proceeded to attack Obama, it was Biden who jumped into the fray to defend his Jr. colleague.

“This is bulls**t. This is malarkey,” said Biden, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. “This is outrageous. Outrageous for the president of the United States to go to a foreign country, sit in the Knesset … and make this kind of ridiculous statement.”

On the other hand, Biden has had his share of critical acclaim with his mouth in the primaries. Recall what he said earlier; “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”

Tell uis you really think Joe? Biden, is one of the few people that can speak aboout Obama in those terms, and it not seem like an underhanded slight. Biden is one the few people in D.C. that engender trust. I don’t really know what Biden meant, or from what vantage point he was speaking from. I’ll let Joe defend his own statements that are sure to be dredged up in this soon to be heated general election!

“What I was attempting to be — but not very artfully — was complimentary,” Biden told Jon Stewart. “This is an incredible guy, c’mon! He’s a phenomenon.”

There are only 4 Senators more Senior than Biden, but 44 that are older than them. Wow! In my opinion, Biden was the choice because he offers Senior level clearance which means that he can get doors opened literally. He can bypass bureacracy with experience & know how! He’s very well respected in the Senate, and known for reaching across the aisle and working with conservatives an liberals alike.

Now, with Joe on the team as an Independent voter he makes this ticket more appealing. Let’s get ready to rumble, and wait to see who McCain selects for his VP.


  2. Curiously, in the United States, the Democratic candidates who are Catholics (Ferraro in 1984, Kerry in 2004 or now Biden in 2008) are pro abortion. The only improvement of the right to life of the unborn has taken a non-Catholic, George Bush. This president has undeniable flaws but banned one type of abortion more bloody, the partial birth abortion. Regards, Santiago Chiva, Granada (Spain)
