Joe Biden on an Obama Presidency: “we’re gonna have an international crisis”

October 20, 2008

 Yesterday Joe Biden said that if Barack Obama was elected president there was sure to be an “international crisis.”

 Sighting Barack Obama’s inexperience he said the following:

“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.”

 A generated crisis? A deliberate, or intentional crisis could also have been used, what does this mean? Was Biden referencing some kind of attack on the United States, foreign or abroad? He does mention where this crisis might originate from.

“I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate,” Biden said to Emerald City supporters, mentioning the Middle East and Russia as possibilities.

 Joe Biden has just said that the world will test a young president to see what he is made of. He just made the case that Barack Obama is too inexperienced to be president. He is telling us to be ready because something is going to happen if we elect Obama, can you imagine what would happen if anybody on the Republican side of the isle made these same accusations? We would hear anger and disdain at the politics of personal destruction. We would hear claims of politics as usual. We would hear that the Republican smear machine was in high gear. We would hear about Republican fear-mongering. We would hear cries of racism. So where is the outrage here?

 But Biden didn’t stop there, he continued:

“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.”

 That is the statement that I find utterly absurd coming from anyone in the Democrat party. He is telling people to stand up and support Obama in an international crisis even if it isn’t clear that he is right. In other words, he is saying to the people not to do the same thing that his party encouraged the American people to do to President Bush. His party has spent the last seven years deliberately trying to divide the country and they have succeeded. While Biden calls for unity after what he claims is an inevitable attack if Obama is elected, it was his party that sought to destroy President Bush.

 He is basically saying, don’t do to us what we did to the Republicans. What a hypocrite. The audacity (of hope) of this man is astounding.

    I wonder if this “crisis” that will test Obama will be anything to do with economics. All this money printing and bountiful bailouts can’t be good for the American dollar. Especially when this country has so much debt and, from what I understand, can barely pay the interest.

    whoever actually wins, an “international crisis” would be inevitable. seriously, if you’re from another country, if you have intentions of testing the president of the US, would it matter who that was? I don’t think so.
