Joe “Clean Black Guy” Biden Is VP Pick For Obama..Update: Videos A..Update: Reaction..Update: A Few Biden Statements Added


Joe Biden is the Vice Presidential pick for the Obama team:

Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware is Barack Obama’s pick as vice presidential running mate, The Associated Press has learned.

Biden, 65, is a veteran of more than three decades in the Senate, and one of his party’s leading experts on foreign policy, an area in which polls indicate Obama needs help in his race against Republican rival John McCain.

The official who spoke did so on condition of anonymity, saying they did not want to pre-empt a text-message announcement the Obama campaign promised for Saturday morning.

Works for me, now we can play that soundbite of that “clean” black guy comment from the guy over and over again.


Yes! Here is the audio:

Lets not forget the Indian 7-11 racist comment he made:

Here he is proud that his state was a slave state:

But we all are supposed to know he didn’t really mean this kind of stuff in a mean way right? He’s a liberal so he just can’t be racist…..

Ask Sen. Byrd that please.

Awesome pick Obama….just stellar.


Jonah Goldberg:

I think it is an outright terrible decision on Obama’s part to pick Biden. Yes, he helps balance Obama’s inexperience on foreign policy, but he also reminds people of it. Yes, Biden could conceivably be effective as an attack dog. But Biden is such a gasbag he makes the Hindenburg look like a sack of rocks. Obama doesn’t need to increase his lip-flapping quotient. Biden is a gaffe machine and Obama is bad explaining faults, and his VP’s faults will inevitably become Obama’s in the Fall campaign. Biden will be fantastic at convincing people already eager to vote for Obama to vote for Obama. His ability to convince the undecided is much, much weaker, in my opinion. There’s more than a small risk that Biden will reinforce the sense that this ticket is all about hearing itself talk. I wouldn’t be surprised, two months from now, that we’ll hear a lot of talk about how Obama’s mistake in picking Biden can be explained by Obama’s inherent weakness, and love, for talky-talk-talk.


A few Biden statements that should interest a few people:

Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE) Reaffirmed That Obama Was Not Ready To Be Commander In Chief. ABC’s George Stephanopoulos: “You were asked is he ready. You said ‘I think he can be ready, but right now I don’t believe he is. The presidency is not something that lends itself to on-the-job training.’” Sen. Biden: “I think that I stand by the statement.” (ABC’s “This Week,” 8/19/07)

Sen. Biden: “Having talking points on foreign policy doesn’t get you there.” (”Biden Lashes Out At Obama,” ABC News’ “Political Radar” Blog,, 8/2/07)

Sen. Biden Called Obama’s Pronouncement “Very Naive.” Sen. Biden: “It’s a well-intended notion he has, but it’s a very naive way of thinking how you’re going to conduct foreign policy. … [T]he way to deal with it is not to announce it, but to do it. The last thing you want to do is telegraph to the folks in Pakistan that we are about to violate – quote – ‘their sovereignty.'” (“Biden Lashes Out At Obama,” ABC News’ “Political Radar” Blog,, 8/2/07)

Picking Biden is an affirmation from Obama that he is weak on foreign policy and national security and it won’t help Obama much because people don’t vote for the #2 on the ticket.

Interesting that Biden had to drop out of the 1988 presidential race for plagiarising speeches from U.K. Labor Party leader Neil Kinnock.

Of course we all know that Obama has a habit of borrowing speeches too, so they are two peas in a pod.

Thank you, God.

Yipppeeee! Yee Haw!

This is the gift that will keep on giving. ROTFLMAO!

Hah. Just another instance that shows that Obama can play the politics game. Like everything else he’s done, it’s all just a big political move. Too bad it’s doomed to fail.

This sounds like a good pick for John McCain. Joe Biden may be smart, but he is a complete gaff machine. I think Biden, if anything, will accentuate Obama’s inexperience. And as people don’t vote for the vice presidents credentials, will not help Obama attract independent voters.

I used to think, along with most of the media, that Obama was going to have this election easy. But his flakieness is catching up with him. It’s beginning to seem more and more unlikely that this guy is going to win after saying things like, “The infastructure of China is vastly supierior to ours.”

I’m thinking Obama had few options. Here is how I think the process went. First he picked somebody that was not a Hillary supporter. That’s half the Democrats. Then he picked somebody that has had “experience.” The only name that came up was Biden. I believe most of his supporters are flavor of the day Democrats that like bright shiny objects, read the tabloids and are part of the fashion scene. The news had Biden as a top choice for over a month. Some reporters looked at others, but those probably were not Obama supporters, didn’t want to give up their position or lacked the “experience.”

By the way, what is foreign policy experience? Biden wasn’t begging Bush to put troops in Georgia before the Russians invaded, he doesn’t know where Bin Ladin is and he isn’t making Iran stop its nuclear enterprise. Can the guy jump in the middle of any country and speak the language? Does he know all the world leaders or even most of them? As far as foriegn policy goes, I doubt Biden knows more than the rest of us.

Biden wanted to divide Iraq into three parts not that long ago. Such a move would have clearly been a disaster. Shakey even in broad terms as a policy, it would have exacerbated tensions in detail as it would have forced borders to be set, and accentuated any tendency toward ‘ethnic’ cleansing.

The Democratic Dream Ticket – An empty suit and a stuffed shirt. Lets make Caroline Kennedy “Woman of the Year”.

Think of Biden overseeing the senate. What a joke. Then again, if Obama is weak on foreign policy and he depends on Biden to handle that that is an even bigger joke or a disaster whichever way you look at it. Obama could not have picked a bigger idiot if he tried. But then, like to like. He probably hasn’t even noticed what a clown Biden is. After all, how many days has he spent in the senate since he was selected.

I don’t know about you all, but I find it depressing our Admin branch is being stocked by Congressional Senators…

And what about that “change the way Washington does business” bit? This guy’s a career Congressman, more than half his life span being spent “doing business” the old way in Washington. There’s some consistency for you. Even the Clinton’s haven’t been in the beltway that long, but they are representative of the old school he wants to change.

Biden voted to prohibit partial birth… Obama was no where to be seen for that vote.

Obama voted *for* the US-Oman Free Trade Act, but against CAFTA. Biden voted against both. At least Biden was consistent.

Both BHO and JRB protest these agreements for, among other reasons, lack of mandates regulating unions or workers conditions, and environmental protections. Yet BHO voted for the US-Oman Free Trade Act and not CAFTA? Even the AFL-CIO opposed OFTA, calling it identical to NAFTA in these specific flaws.

WTF?? So I guess the meaning of “change” is not being consistent.

But on Biden overall? I’m with Word, da *man* #2….. “Thank you, God”.

Now, time to turn the news off. My idea of “news” is not all stations/24/7 waiting for Biden to emerge from a house to go to the airport… Puleeeze.

There goes the ‘D.C.’ insider rants.
There goes the he’s too ‘old’ rants.
There goes the ‘Bush’s’ war rants.

Now can we talk about the 70,000+ Americans who have been murdered by ‘criminal’ aliens, aka undocumented citizens, since 2001.

Peeeloshi and the 9%’rs can alway hype that this is the man ‘god’ sent us. Most likely you will find that he is the punishment god sent to the idiots in the country.

I’ve always heard that to look skinny you hang around with fat prople. Hussein O needs to look smart so he ‘selects’ someone who appears more stupid than he.

Oh jeez, I’d forgotten about that “clean” black man comment by Joe “The Mouth” Biden.

What’s probably worse for Obama is that he and Biden have some big policy differences that McCain will exploit. Obama didn’t want a yes man but I think he ended up with a no man.
Not WRIGHT for America has a hilarious spoof post about Obama debating Biden instead of McCain. I think that sums up the problems with the Biden pick.

Shall we add more? The Iraqis are none too happy about Biden.

“This choice of Biden is disappointing, because he is the creator of the idea of dividing Iraq,” Salih al-Mutlaq, head of National Dialogue, one of the main Sunni Arab blocs in parliament, told Reuters.

“We rejected his proposal when he announced it, and we still reject it. Dividing the communities and land in such a way would only lead to new fighting between people over resources and borders. Iraq cannot survive unless it is unified, and dividing it would keep the problems alive for a long time.”


Today, even Kurds who already have their own autonomous enclave in northern Iraq say they oppose the “Biden plan.”

“We don’t support establishing federal regions on a sectarian basis. For example our region is not ethnic, it contains Kurds and non-Kurds. The regions should be established on a geographic basis,” said Kurdish lawmaker Mahmoud Othman.

Ezzet al-Shabender, a member of parliament from the secularist Iraqi List of former prime minister Ayad Allawi, actually credited the broad-based disgust triggered by Biden’s proposal for helping Iraqi politicians bury their differences.

“His project was the reason behind the unity of many political blocs that once differed in viewpoints,” he said, comparing it to the Balfour Declaration, a 1917 British note that backed the creation of Israel and is regarded across the Arab world as the ultimate colonial injustice.

“Such a person, if he would assume the vice-presidency post, would not serve to improve Iraq-USA relations.”

Hang… Obama-Biden don’t even serve US-US relations!

[The Iraqis are none too happy about Biden.]

Thanks, Mata, for picking up on this! This does not look good for BHO at all.

I just found a bunch of the same things in my own research. I could’ve saved myself some time and just come here first ;-)). Biden is a HUGE gift to the GOP!!
