I'm sort of surprised by Obama's choice for vp.   Apparently a lot of the democrats weren't too fired up either.  This was the guy that said that Obama lacked the experience needed for a president and "the presidency is not something that lends itself to on-the-job training."

Liberal or conservative, this guy's arrogance has to eat at you.

He's the guy who told a reporter, "I have a higher IQ than you" just before he mentioned his full scholarship to college, where he won a prestigious award and finished near the top of his class.  It turns out he went on a partial scholarship that was income based, finished in the bottom 10% of his class and didn't win the award.  Oops.

I'm really just surprised by this choice.  He actually dropped out of the '88 race after he was caught plagiarizing lines from someone else's speech. (something Clinton accused Obama of doing this year)

Anyhow, start getting mad and throwing mud...I'm just saying this choice leaves me scratching my head.


  1. No way ... a politician who's been caught out for telling lies and making themselves sound better than they are!

    IF integrity and honesty were qualities essential to govern then I'd hazard a guess that 90% of the world's politicians would be out of a job!

    Biden covers the foreign policy deficit, and also seems a bit more ready to mix it than Obama is ... maybe it's a case of trying to get some balance, or someone who'll sling the mud that Obama hasn't ... time will tell eh? :o)

  2. Biden is known, respected by his colleagues, has a great foreign policy record, is willing to mix things up, and is NOT Hillary.

    I am pleased.
