As the 2008 Presidential Election draws closer and closer Democrat Vice Presidential Candidate Joe Biden demonstrates why Sarah Palin is more than capable of having to step in to be commander in chief should the need arise.
Biden's growing list of gaffes includes calling his running mate, "the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean." Making derogatory statements about legal immigrant workers, "you cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking." And asking crippled Senator Chuck Baldwin to, "please stand up."
The KC Red Star's Prime Buzz blog has pointed out that Biden has gotten exceptionally bad in the past 24 hours.
He told a questioner in a campaign line that he and Obama do not support clean coal. "No coal plants here in America." Yet, his campaigns stated policy papers support clean coal power plants.
He bungled depression history saying, "When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened.'" The problem with that statement, there were no televisions in 1929 and the president at the time was Hoover, not FDR.
He even attacked his own campaign's ad that attacked Sen. McCain as being out of touch for not being able to use a computer or email, "I thought that was terrible. I didn't know we did it and if I had anything to do with it, we would have never done it." Despite Obama 'approving the message' Biden's stance is probably a good one to take since the Boston Globe reported over eight years ago that, "McCain's severe war injuries prevent him from combing his hair, typing on a keyboard, or tying his shoes."
They say Palin is unfit to step in as commander in chief because she was only the mayor of a small town where people still cling to their guns and religion and she was only the governor of the largest geographic state in the union. Yet, they want us all to blindly support Obama, who lacks any leadership experience, and Biden, who can't seem to get through the day without making some false statement or racial slur.
